If you have been struggling with under-chin fat that no amount of diet and exercise seems to help, FDA-cleared ALLURA laser face & body sculpting may be the ideal treatment for you!

ALLURA is a minimally invasive form of laser liposuction that typically offers immediately visible results and unique benefits not available with non-invasive contouring or traditional liposuction methods.

Key advantages of ALLURA laser sculpting are:

  • Rapid fat reduction & skin contraction*
  • Minimal downtime
  • A convenient in-office procedure
  • A Single-session treatment

ALLURA’s precise, minimally invasive laser technology can define even the most delicate or challenging areas, which is why we use this specifically for contouring the neck and defining the jawline.

What are the Benefits of Allura?

ALLURA is a laser system with the ability to quickly liquefy fat cells while also penetrating fibrous tissue to promote spontaneous skin contraction. Using laser-assisted liposuction, we maximize patient outcomes while minimizing downtime.

ALLURA laser-assisted liposuction is a beneficial treatment for adults who want optimal results in a short amount of time. Clinical studies on the ALLURA™ device module indicate that patients achieve profound cosmetic results within 2 weeks after treatment, and the benefits continue beyond this timeframe. The device offers predictability in both timeliness and noticeable contouring.

  • The liquefied fat is gently aspirated, leading to improved comfort and less swelling.
  • The 1319 nm laser moves gently through fibrous tissue, causing less trauma and bleeding than traditional liposuction.
  • The energy from the laser device stimulates collagen production for an added skin-tightening benefit.
  • Minimal scarring results from the low-profile laser tip.

What is the Treatment Like?

To begin the ALLURA™ procedure, the surgeon may infiltrate the area under the chin and along the jawline with diluted lidocaine. One or more tiny incisions are made to accommodate the laser applicator tip. The laser is moved through fatty tissue in a particular pattern to simultaneously heat the dermis and melt fat cells until a desired temperature is achieved. Fat removal is then conducted using a very small cannula, or tube, using gentle suction. The small size of the ALLURA™ cannula achieves smooth, consistent results. When the procedure is finished, incisions may be dressed, and a compression garment may be applied to keep post-operative swelling to a minimum. Allura Laser liposuction does not require general anesthesia. Most patients are treated in-office with tumescent lidocaine and given oral sedation for comfort.

Who are the Best Candidates for Allura?

ALLURA™ facial contouring is ideal for healthy patients who are interested in redefining their chin and jawline with:

  • In-office treatment using oral sedation and local anesthetic only (no general anesthesia)
  • Minimal downtime
  • Fast cosmetic results
  • Lasting results

What to Expect After Allura Procedure?

Chin contouring with ALLURA™ laser-assisted liposuction achieves excellent results with minimal downtime. For the first 12 to 24 hours, patients may notice slight drainage from the small incisions. Bruising may also occur. However, this may be obscured by the chin compression garment worn for a few days. Tissue bruising, numbness, and/or soreness are expected. These side effects typically diminish within 1 to 2 weeks. Overall, downtime for ALLURA™ facial contouring is minimal. Patients may return to light, normal activities as soon as the next day, within limitation, provided they wear their compression garments as directed. After 2 days, garment wear may be reduced to nighttime only.
