I am currently getting laser hair treatment and tattoo removal here and I am very pleased with the entire process. I was given free treatments due to COVID interfering with our scheduled laser treatments. I have been working with Erin for over a year and she never is in a rush or stressed about having school and work. I was told I was not a good candidate for waxing so I was referred to Advanced Aesthetics and would recommend to a family member or friend.

My experience here has been outstanding from time of making my appointment to arriving at my first laser hair removal visit. Leslie at the front desk is so kind and helpful and takes her time answering questions. Meghan, the very experienced master aesthetician, shared at least 30 minutes with me before getting the procedure. It felt authentic, kind, safe, professional, fun, and calm. She felt like a true supportive medical professional and friend with down to earth real advice and experience with struggles as a woman. She listened respectfully, shared her wisdom, and definitely helped me feel at ease and empowered to do a procedure I have wanted for years but did not know where to go. The actual process of laser hair removal was not hard or scary. She is such a professional and really made me feel at ease and safe. I am excited to learn more about skin care and products from Advanced Aesthetics and definitely trust their advice and expertise. Thank you so much!!

Choosing the Correct Procedure

Early signs of aging, such as a sagging neck or jowls, can take a toll on your self-image. You may want a refreshed, more youthful appearance but may not be ready to undergo a cosmetic surgery such as a facelift, Lifestyle Lift™, or neck lift. Smartlipo and PrecisionTx are both excellent options that offer many of the same benefits without being as invasive as a skin-removal procedure. There are some subtle differences between the 2 procedures that may lead Dr. Johnson to recommend using one or the other in individual cases.

The benefits of Precision Tx include:

  • Minimal scarring discreetly hidden under the jawline
  • Performed as an outpatient procedure
  • Minimal recovery time
  • Lower facial and jowl contouring
  • Long-lasting results

The benefits of Smartlipo include:

  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Gentler than traditional liposuction
  • Minimal recovery time
  • Promotes skin tightening

Smartlipo is a flexible procedure that can contour most areas of the body as well as the neck. PrecisionTx is designed specifically to treat smaller areas, such as the lower face and neck.

Smartlipo vs. PrecisionTx

Procedure Smartlipo PrecisionTx
Type of procedure Minimally invasive Minimally invasive
Procedure goals Reduced fat in the neck and below the chin Tighter, lifted skin for lower face and neck
Scarring Minimal (tiny incisions made in neck) Minimal (tiny incisions hidden in jawline or behind ears)
Recovery Usually about 2 days Usually about 2 days
Skin tightening potential In all cases In all cases

Combining the Treatments

In some cases Dr. Johnson may recommend combining the 2 treatments for the maximum possible benefit. The recovery period may be slightly longer in these cases, but still significantly shorter than with a skin-excising procedure, and as comfortable as Smartlipo or PrecisionTx alone.
