The volume reduction and sculpting of the face, including the neck and jowl can be efficiently achieved using AccuLift™. A laser having 1444nm wavelength designed specially to emulsify the adipose tissue is used in this procedure. The energy from the laser helps to melt the fat under the targeted skin. This treatment is very effective as the technology makes use of dual absorption for both fat and water. TheAccuLift™ stands out among all other lipolysis lasers. In other lasers the heat spreads out to the neighbouring areas causing discomfort, but when using AccuLift™, the heat is confined only to the desired area.
AccuLift™ can be used to treat melolabial folds, submentum, nasolabial folds and jowls and can be applied to all skin types. The entire procedure takes around 20-40 minutes depending on the number of areas to be treated. To start the treatment, the subcutaneous plane is made numb using diluted anaesthesia after which the melting of fat is started along with the sculpting and contouring of the face using a cannula and the removal of excess fat. Better results are obtained in patients who are suffering from early aging signs in the lower part of the face, with the results being long-lasting. The procedure is ended by applying compression dressing along with a small bandage on the cut. Around 4-5 days of downtime is experienced by patients after the treatment.
