If you’ve noticed troubling signs of aging through the lower face such as jowling, deepening laugh lines or a saggy upper neck but don’t feel ready for a surgical facelift, you still have options. Dr. Truong offers the PrecisionTX™ laser mini face lift as a nonsurgical solution for reversing the appearance of premature aging and helping you look refreshed without stitches, scars or a lengthy recovery period.
This advanced laser technology can give you results that are similar to a traditional facelift, yet uses a far less invasive approach. Dr. Truong is highly experienced in this advanced laser technology so you can feel confident about achieving the beautiful outcome that you deserve, or even see results that exceed your expectations.

Dr. Truong Was great and I couldn't ask for a better doctor! He answered every question that I had. I did my homework for a whole year before going through with the surgery. I recommend that you trust no other Dr with this type of surgery because looks matter. And one little mistake can be the difference. I'm glad that I chose wisely. Thanks again to Dr. Truong!
Dr. Truong’s skillful reputation is well-known not just among the layperson, but also among his peers within the medical profession. His former patients include nurses and operating room technicians who have personally seen him in action, and who are in a position to compare Dr. Truong’s work with that of other surgeons. As Dr. Truong says, being entrusted to perform cosmetic procedures on coworkers and physicians themselves is “the greatest compliment a surgeon can get!"

You shouldn’t have to worry about cost when it comes to putting your best face forward. Our practice offers CareCredit and other financing options that help ensure that your mini face lift is even more affordable.
Dr. Truong offers a thorough and comprehensive consultation where you can get the details on all of your cosmetic options. He’ll take the time to answer each and every one of your questions.
Despite the wide range of nonsurgical med spa treatments available today to help keep the signs of aging at bay for longer, some age-related issues—like sagging skin—need a more advanced level of care. The PrecisionTX™ laser-based mini face lift offers a deeper level of correction than injectables, without the risks or lengthy recovery associated with a surgical facelift.
At your consultation with Dr. Truong, he’ll talk with you about your appearance concerns to determine if the mini face lift is the best option for you. The PrecisionTX™ only addresses the lower face, so Dr. Truong may recommend additional procedures, such as eyelid surgery, for more comprehensive results.
Dr. Truong will take this time to explain the technology behind PrecisionTX™ and how a laser-based mini face lift can give you long-lasting results. He’ll also give you instructions to follow before and after your appointment so you can feel fully informed about what to expect.
Because the mini face lift doesn’t involve surgery, your appointment will typically take just an hour, and requires only local anesthesia. Dr. Truong will make a very tiny incision, smaller than the diameter of a pencil eraser, hidden as discreetly as possible behind your ear. Through this access point, he inserts a cannula, using focused laser energy to treat the fat below the skin’s surface. At the same time, skin is tightened and the natural production of collagen is stimulated for smoother, firmer skin and soft tissue.
Some patients may notice mild soreness after their mini face lift, but this should diminish quite rapidly. Results should be visible almost immediately, with ongoing improvement developing over the next several months as collagen levels continue to increase. Your jawline and upper neck should look slimmer and more sculpted for a subtly refreshed look that helps you look younger and more well-rested without appearing artificially tight or “done.”
