Rejuvenate Your Face@headingTag>
As we age, skin loses elasticity, resulting in wrinkles and other signs of aging. Today, advanced treatments can help you soften the signs of aging and achieve a rejuvenated, vibrant appearance.
At Mountcastle Plastic Surgery, we want to help you look and feel your best, which is why we proudly offer state-of-the art facial contouring to our Northern Virginia patients using the Precision TX™ laser procedure. Learn more during a consultation at our practice.
Why Does Skin Age?@headingTag>
No matter how frequently you moisturize, wear sunscreen, and stay hydrated, your skin will eventually begin to show the effects of age. A number of factors contribute to aging skin, including external effects like sunlight and smoking, as well as biological changes. The biggest culprit is your body’s gradually slowing production of collagen, the protein that makes up 70% your dermis, and gives it thickness and elasticity. With less collagen production, you will begin to develop wrinkles and thinner skin. Skin may also begin to sag.
What is Precision TX?@headingTag>
Precision TX™ is an advanced, minimally-invasive technique that stimulates collagen production and restores a more youthful appearance to your face. Because it only takes about an hour, does not require surgery, and has such high success rates, many people call it an “instant facelift.” An effective treatment for aging skin, Precision TX™ is best suited for the lower half of the face, including the cheeks, chin, jaw, and neck.
When you receive a Precision TX™ treatment at Mountcastle Plastic Surgery, Dr. Mountcastle will first numb the area of your face that will be treated. He then inserts miniscule laser fibers under the surface of your skin. These lasers cause minimal discomfort. The energy from the lasers stimulates collagen production, melts fat, and triggers tissue coagulation, which in turn makes skin firmer.
After the procedure, you may experience some swelling, but you will already be able to see a noticeable difference in your skin. The full effect of your procedure will not be apparent until a few months after the treatment, at which time you should notice reduced lines and wrinkles, decreased fat in the chin and neck, and greater firmness and elasticity.

"This review is for the IPL-BBL treatment for age spots. In past years, I have wasted many thousands of dollars on IPL (non-BBL), microdermabrasions, chemical peels, facials, and products to treat dark spots that started showing up in my mid-fifties. IPL-BBL from Mountcastle is the only one that has made a huge improvement for me. After treatment, many of the spots turned almost black before they healed, and I was warned that this would happen. After my first treatment, it took about a week to completely heal and see the full results, and they were amazing. I had one blotch that was so deep it felt leathery. Although the blotch still exists, it is lighter and smaller and no longer feels or looks like leather. I purchased four treatments and I had my second treatment yesterday. I can see many spots turning dark now, so I know they will heal and look better next week. Many of the spots on my face have completely disappeared. I don't expect to be spot-free after this second treatment, but I am getting there. If all continues to go as remarkably as I expect, I plan on doing my hands next. Ragan was my aesthetist. She is excellent. She answered all my questions and she suggested some products to use at home. She used an IPL machine that has a cooling feature, a real plus. I felt a hot snap and an instant cooling at each spot. It wasn't painful enough to make me jump and it's well worth the results. I have one minor complaint: They don't always answer the phone or return calls promptly."- M.M. / Yelp / Mar 08, 2017
"Wonderful Experience. Very easy to schedule appointment. Staff very nice. Ragan was great - very knowledgeable. Beautiful and clean facility. Would highly recommend."- S.Z. / Yelp / Mar 08, 2017
