The “Inside Out Neck Lift” Introduced By Dr. Sheena Kong On ABC News
San Francisco, CA – Dr. Sheena Kong says her “Inside-Out Neck Lift” is a minimally invasive laser treatment that goes beyond liposuction to get rid of a double chin and restore youthful neck contours. “Best of all, no scalpels and no stitches are required,” says Dr. Kong. “Downtime is cut to a minimum, and the procedure takes just an hour.”
“Sagging skin and the loss of youthful contours can combine to make a person look older than he or she feels. Facial treatments which apply only external laser energy can’t produce dramatic results. Until now, the only way to lift and tighten the neck adequately was through invasive surgery.” The Inside-Out Neck Lift is performed with a thin fiber-optic laser device which tightens skin safely and effectively. The treatment is done with the patient awake, without cutting.
The Inside Out Neck Lift begins with Dr. Kong making three tiny holes, less than 1mm in width, or about the thickness of the tip of a ballpoint pen, with one made under the chin and one behind each ear. After a local anesthetic is introduced to numb the areas, a thin fiber optic wire is inserted one at a time through the three incisions and a beam of light emitted from the laser is directed to the fat and water in the skin. Controlled laser energy heats the dermis (the deeper layer of the skin) while precisely melting fat. “This spurs new collagen growth and promotes noticeable skin tightening,” says Dr. Kong.
The Inside Out Neck Lift causes very little trauma to the tissues, so there is minimal bruising, discomfort or downtime. “The skin will continue to tighten over the next few months as collagen is formed, increasing the effect” says Dr. Kong.
