Understanding PrecisionTX Treatments
PrecisionTX is an innovative and versatile treatment that uses the heat generated by laser energy to trigger the production of new collagen, one of the essential elements of smooth, tight skin. The procedure actually uses the SmartLipo Triplex™ platform, which includes multiple laser wavelengths that can be customized to treat specific areas of the face and body.
A PrecisionTX treatment uses a specialized cannula that directs the laser energy with precision, which makes it ideal for smaller areas such as the neck and jawline. A local anesthetic numbs the treatment area before the procedure begins. A very small fiber optic wire is inserted through tiny incisions and Dr. Larsen carefully guides the small wand to precisely deliver the laser energy. The body’s natural healing process immediately begins repairing the heated tissue, creating new collagen and elastin.
You can also benefit from PrecisionTX treatments if you’re concerned about minimizing wrinkles and fine lines that are usually the early signs of aging.
Treating Hyperhidrosis With PrecisionTX
Excessive underarm sweat – a condition called hyperhidrosis – can be embarrassing and even limit your social and professional activities. It can also be costly having to replace stained clothes. PrecisionTX is approved by the FDA for treating hyperhidrosis. Unlike BOTOX® injections, which provides temporary relief from excessive sweating, PrecisionTX offers a long-term solution without the surgical removal of sweat glands.
A PrecisionTX treatment targets the sweat glands in the underarm area with laser energy, providing a 90% reduction in the activity of the glands. The treatment involves inserting the laser through tiny incisions about the size of a pen tip. Only one treatment is needed in most cases and there is virtually no downtime following the procedure.
