Face and Neck Tightening Newnan


We utilize a laser called Affirm™ which is made by Cynosure™. This device combines a pulse light with fractional 1440 nm Nd Yag laser to help tighten unwanted skin laxity. Treatments of the face neck, chest and hands can be performed. Targeted layers of the skin are treated with gentle heating. This results in diminished skin laxity.

In one study which looked at 10 patients, eight patients achieved a 76% to 100% overall improvement and two patients achieved 51% to 75% overall improvement. Adverse effects were limited to mild temporary redness and swelling which only lasted for several hours after treatment.


It is important to perform a thorough pre-op assessment of patients who desire skin tightening. Factors such as the degree of skin elasticity, history of cold sores, and recent Accutane™ ingestion need to be taken into account.


It usually takes 3 to 6 treatments to see results with the Affirm™ tightening device. Each treatment takes 30 to 45 minutes and requires only topical anesthesia. Treatments are repeated on a monthly basis.


It is important to stay out of the sun for at least a week following each treatment. Redness and swelling can be controlled with cool compresses and head elevation.

Face and Neck Tightening

I just can’t say enough about this practice. I had some cosmetic work done, and I still look like me just 10 years younger. I am so pleased with my results.

    Blepharoplasty is utilized to repair sagging eyelid skin and correct unsightly fat pads. Depending on the nature of the issue, excess skin, redundant muscle, and bulging fat pads can be cosmetically corrected in order to restore a refreshed and more youthful appearance to the eyes. CO2 Laser can be used simultaneously with this procedure to remove unwanted skin growths and improve sun damaged skin.

    Chemical Peel

    The precise formulas in peels vary and the type utilized is personally adjusted to meet each patient’s needs. For example, tricholoracetic acid (TCA) is a medium depth peel, which can eliminate brown spots and help to even out textural irregularities on the face and neck. Downtime is usually around 7 days. Glycolic acid peels are referred to as lunchtime peels.

    The “lyft” procedure is coined term that we are using to describe a procedure which removes excess fat and skin from the lower face, neck or both. Skin and musculature is tightened in the process. Repositioning of the skin allows our patients to achieve a more youthful appearance. Those who respond best have deep cheek folds and loose sagging skin around the neck. As we age, fat pads descend from the upper cheek and skin laxity becomes more prominent in the jowl regions of the face. Our lyft technique uses smaller incisions. These are hidden behind the ear folds and/or in the crease just under the chin. By minimizing incision length (and undermining), the procedure is safer and requires less downtime than that seen with a traditional facelift.
