Photo Facial

FotofacialT therapy is a lighter form of laser treatment. Brief light pulses treat sun damaged skin and rosacea. Skin imperfections such as redness of your complexion, broken blood vessels and irregularities of skin color can be corrected, as well as a reduction of wrinkles and decrease pore size.

Unlike laser treatments, FotofacialT treatments can be done on the entire body with no down time. They can also be used to correct imperfections left by other procedures, such as a chemical peel. Dr. Struck does FotofacialT treatments in the office, and you will be able to return to work immediately after your appointment.

Anesthesia • Topical anesthetic lotion only
Return Home • Same day
Recovery Time • Return to work the same day

Neck Liposuction

neck liposuction

Neck liposuction fixes double chins and sharpens jaw lines. This type of liposuction removes excess fat from the neck and jowl area. The best candidates are usually people in their thirties and forties because of the elasticity of their skin which permits it to shrink down after the treatment.

The procedure requires only three small one-eighth inch incisions, one under the chin and one behind each ear. Bruising is minimal as the procedure is done using “tumescent” technique, during which saline solution, numbing medications, and epinephrine are injected beneath the skin. These injections compress and shrink blood vessels, reducing bleeding.

Surgery Time • One and one half hours
Anesthesia • Local anesthesia (sometimes twilight anesthesia)
Return Home • Same day
Recovery Time • Five days
Postoperative Care • A chinstrap is worn after the procedure to keep swelling down and help with skin shrinkage
• Neck massage to decrease swelling
