Laser Lift / RFAL

Reduce jowls, sagging neck skin, and transform your profile without a facelift.

At RegenCen, the separate medical division of Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center, Dr. Lo uses the Cynosure laser and InMode Embrace technology to shrink skin and remove fat under the chin and rejuvenate and tighten neck and jawline skin.

“Our patients typically need more tightening than aesthetic treatments like Ultherapy but don’t want a facelift. We shrink aging, sagging skin and reshape the lower face in a one-hour treatment.”

– Dr. Gustav Lo, Medical Director of Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center and RegenCen

Redefine your jawline and the skin under your chin without cutting and stitches.

Redefine your jawline and the skin under your chin without cutting and stitches.

At RegenCen, we utilize three energies (Cynosure laser, InMode Embrace, and Venus) to offer a regenerative alternative to a facelift. With a probe just underneath the skin we can melt and reduce fat and tighten tiny areas of sagging skin. Venus combines RF and PEMF to regenerate collagen and speed healing.

More about Laser Lift and FaceTite / AccuTite (InMode Embrace)

A Laser Lift (sometimes referred to as LazerLift) is a minimally invasive, in-office treatment designed to reduce many signs of aging including, sagging skin, jowls, “turkey neck,” double chin, and excess neck fat. After this skin tightening treatment, patients often feel they’ve turned back the clock 10 years – see for yourself! Check out our before and afters of Laser Lift in our gallery.

The InMode Embrace technology used for FaceTIte is radiofrequency energy instead of laser energy but accomplishes very similar results. At RegenCen, Dr. Gustav Lo uses both technologies and chooses the best one depending on skin thickness, amount of fat removal needed, and medical history.

Tighten your jawline and completely transform your chin, jowls, and neck in one 45-minute, in-office visit.

How do Laser Lift and FaceTite / AccuTite work?


Consultations for skin tightening are complimentary. Our providers are trained to discuss your goals and expectations and different treatment options - from facelift surgery, to Ultherapy, to threadlifts, to Laser Lift and FaceTite.

People who want the most dramatic skin tightening precisely along the jawline and jowl area without facelift surgery may opt for Laser Lift or InMode Embrace (FaceTite, AccuTite). At your consultation we will discuss your medical and surgical history, downtime, and cost.

Pre-Treatment Instructions

Before treatment, Dr. Lo will complete a pre-operative appointment. Once approved for treatment, patients may be advised to:

  • stop smoking for two weeks before Laser Lift or FaceTite
  • adjust prescription medications or avoid certain over-the-counter medications, including Aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs
  • stay hydrated
  • wear a loose-fitting top or zip-up hoodie
  • arrive freshly showered
  • arrange for transportation if you are taking a sedative


You may be prescribed a mild sedative to relax you on procedure day. The treatment starts with Dr. Lo using a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area through small (2mm) skin punctures.

Once the treatment area is numb, the doctor inserts a fiber optic laser through the same skin punctures. Similar to Smartlipo, Laser Lift and FaceTite use heat and laser energy to destroy fat cells and tighten the skin. Any leftover fat is then gently suctioned away, resulting in a more youthful appearance. The treatment shouldn’t take more than 45 minutes to complete. We perform Laser Lift and FaceTite in both Petoskey and Traverse City in our aesthetic division, Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center.

Frequently Asked Questions about
Laser Lift / FaceTite

Am I too old to get Laser Lift / FaceTite?

There isn't an age that is too old. And as people age, they tend to want to avoid the risks of plastic surgery. Instead of looking for the best plastic surgeon in the area, they are looking for experience and customized treatments that tighten skin without surgery. Dr. Lo has performed Laser Lift and FaceTite on people in their 80's successfully. Every case is unique, of course, so skin tightening consultations are complimentary in our Petoskey and Traverse City aesthetic and regenerative clinics.

How long do Laser Lift and FaceTite results last?

The results of a successful Laser Lift and FaceTite treatment can last for five years or more. We have patients who are still happy with their skin tightening results 12 years later. Because we permanently remove fat cells under the chin and jawline, it’s considered one of the longest-lasting treatments in facial rejuvenation. Patients can help maintain their results doing collagen regeneration treatments like Venus, Forma, Ultherapy and Morpheus8.

How quickly will I get skin tightening with Laser Lift / FaceTite?

Most patients see improvement in volume in a few days and they see continued tightening for six months to one year following either Laser Lift or FaceTite. Adding Venus (a combination of PEMF and RF) speeds recovery time and improves results by regenerating collagen. Most of the before and after photos of FaceTite or Laser Lift in our gallery were taken around 3 months.

What is a nonsurgical facelift?

Many patients don't want plastic surgery but still want to tighten and lift facial skin. A "nonsurgical facelift" combines treatments to achieve a natural but noticeable result that is long-lasting. At Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center, we offer many noninvasive treatments that firm and tighten skin, replace lost facial volume, and lift aging skin such as fillers, Sculptra, threads, Ultherapy, and CO2 laser. At RegenCen, the medical division of Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center located in the same building in Traverse City and Petoskey, we offer minimally invasive treatments like Laser Lift and FaceTite to compliment those treatments. And adding bioidentical hormone treatment at RegenCen after menopause helps maintain the integrity and elasticity of aging skin.
