LazerLift Face Lift Alternative Revealed On "The Doctors" Show

Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Roger Bassin and his patient, Seleina appear on "The Doctors" to show results of the LazerLift, a new face lift alternative. Like many women, Seleina was unhappy with sagging, wrinkled skin on her chin and neck. "I wanted to fix the problem but I didn’t want to have a surgical procedure with cutting and sutures," she says.

"LazerLift  is the first procedure that tightens facial skin and its underlying supporting tissues without a scalpel," says Dr. Bassin. Using a new fiber-optic laser device, the LazerLift  tightens and smoothes the skin safely and effectively. The procedure is done with the patient awake, with no stitches, no scars and it’s soon to be offered by leading physicians across the country."

"A face with sagging skin is a classic sign of aging, which usually requires a scalpel and surgery to put things back in their place, but not any more," says Dr. Bassin, who developed the LazerLift procedure. "The skin is tightened using a thin fiber-optic wire which emits energy in two directions. The LazerLift can be performed in as little as 30 to 40 minutes. There’s no need for general anesthesia, and patients can drive themselves home," says Dr. Bassin.

How the LazerLift Works:
"A very thin fiber optic wire is inserted one at a time through the three incisions and a beam of light emitted from the laser is attracted to the fat and water in the skin. The side-firing fiber optic wire is unique because one side heats the dermis (deeper layer of the skin) from the inside out while the other melts the fat, spurring new collagen growth which provides foundation and support for the face and significant skin tightening."

Dr. Bassin says the LazerLift is effective for the same facial tissues that often require surgical tightening with a scalpel. "I believe that this is the way many doctors will do facial skin tightening in the near future," he says.

“While every patient heals differently and your doctor will discuss specific expectations with each patient at the time of the procedure, in general, LazerLift patients can expect very minimal bruising and swelling for about 3 to 5 days after treatment,” says Dr. Bassin.  “Discomfort is usually minor and can be managed easily with over-the-counter pain medications. After the procedure, the patient will be able to drive home and can resume normal daily activities immediately. The doctor will see each patient for a follow-up visit one week later."
