Dr. Sheena Kong Fixes A Double Chin With Inside-Out Neck Lift

San Francisco - Dr. Sheena Kong is performing a new fix for the sagging neck  she calls the "Inside - Out Neck Lift. "This new treatment goes beyond liposuction. No scalpels and no stitches are required," she says.

Using a special fiber-optic laser device, the Inside-Out  Neck Lift tightens skin safely and effectively. The treatment is done with the patient awake, with no cutting. The procedure uses a tiny fiber optic laser wire to tighten skin.

A face with a sagging neckline is a common sign of aging, which usually requires a scalpel and surgery to put things back in their place. But this new procedure delivers skin tightening energy inside the neck.

The procedure begins with three tiny holes which are made under the chin and behind the ears. Then a local anesthetic is introduced to numb the areas. 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 fiber optic wire heats the dermis (deeper layer of the skin) from the inside out, while melting fat, which spurs new collagen growth and causes noticeable skin tightening.

The device uses technology to precisely control temperatures for patient safety while heating tissues for an optimal tightening effect. The process works in just one treatment session, and yields very little trauma to the tissues, so there is minimal bruising, discomfort or downtime.

"The Inside-Out Neck Lift takes just an hour to do, and best of all the skin continues to improve and tighten over the next few months as collagen is formed,” says Dr. Kong.
