SARASOTA, Fla., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. J. David Holcomb, internationally recognized facial plastic and cosmetic laser surgeon and co-developer of the AccuLift™ with Lutronic Inc., a global leader in manufacturing and development of medical lasers, has developed a revolutionary facial contouring procedure, known as Total Facial Contouring. Total Facial Contouring combines AccuLift treatment and soft tissue augmentation, enabling both selective volume removal and replacement in key areas of the face and giving physicians far greater control over three dimensional facial contour.
The lunchtime facelift, as this can be completed within an hour, removes unwanted signs of aging, combines two minimally invasive procedures and can deliver dramatic results. In a recent patient case study, a 60 year old retired Registered Nurse, needed similar volumes removed and added in different areas of the face via AccuLift treatment and injection of Radiesse® Dermal Filler to obtain an aesthetically pleasing, balanced and youthful look without surgery.
Dr. Holcomb relates that AccuLift treatment is changing the way that injectable fillers are used in many patients. "One of my concerns about the use of filler injections in the nasolabial fold and pre-jowl areas has always been that they really do not address the primary underlying problem in patients with moderately advanced features of aging. Facial fillers may partially camouflage the descended fat that contributes to the nasolabial folds or jowls but in doing so can also create an unnatural fullness in the face," he said.
Now instead of attempting to merely camouflage descended fat we can actually remove the excess fullness of the nasolabial folds and jowls with AccuLift. We are then free to add volume back to the face -- in the form of fillers or fat grafting -- where it is truly needed in volume deficient areas of the midface and jaw line."
AccuLift requires only local anesthesia and a small needle stick – no incisions required – to remove accumulated fat deposits. As a bonus, Dr Holcomb believes that the procedure "may also result in significant skin tightening as a result of direct delivery of thermal energy to the collagen layer deep in the skin."
