As we age, our facial skin begins to sag, wrinkles form, and small fat pockets develop, resulting in jowls and a lack of youthful facial definition. While a facelift is typically performed to tighten the tissues and sculpt the facial contours, FaceTite is a non-surgical option that sculpts and firms the skin and helps achieve a rejuvenated, refreshed appearance.
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is a minimally-invasive facial treatment that tightens the skin on the face and neck and reduces small fat pockets to sculpt the contours and achieve a more youthful look with advanced radiofrequency technology.
What areas can be treated with FaceTite?
FaceTite effectively sculpts and tightens a range of areas on the neck and face:
- Between the brows
- Around the eyes
- Jawline and jowls
- Nasolabial folds
- and other areas.
How Does FaceTite work?
The FaceTite device uses a technology called RFAL: Radiofrequency-Assisted Lipolysis. The FaceTite treatment uses radiofrequency energy to liquefy small fat deposits without harming other tissues. Once the fat is liquefied, it is gently suctioned out with a cannula. At the same time as the RF energy melts fat deposits, the heating effect significantly triggers the production of collagen and elastin. Your body uses the boost in collagen and elastin to restructure and rebuild the skin, strengthening and revitalizing the skin.
The RFAL technology is how FaceTite achieves firmer, more youthful skin, more defined, sculpted features, and general rejuvenation.
What happens during a FaceTite treatment?
Expect your FaceTite treatment to take about two hours. We will begin by applying local anesthesia to ensure you’re comfortable during the procedure. Once the anesthesia takes effect, a very small incision will be made under your chin.
Through this incision, the FaceTite device is inserted. The device emits RF waves, which heat and liquefy fat cells. A separate tool, a cannula, is used to gently suction out this liquefied fat tissue. At the same time as the mechanical action of fat removal occurs, FaceTite is dramatically stimulating collagen and elastin production at the cellular level.
Once your FaceTite procedure is complete, we will apply compression bandages to the area. These compression bandages help reduce swelling and assist in the recovery process, helping ensure your skin heals and tightens properly in its newly sculpted contours.
What are the benefits of FaceTite?
FaceTite provides a non-surgical alternative facelift option that achieves a more sculpted, youthful appearance. Benefits include the following:
- Short recovery period
- Minimally-invasive treatment
- No scarring
- Addresses fat pockets on the face and neck
- Sculpts and defines the jawline
- Firms and tightens lax skin
- Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
- Achieves a revitalized, fresh appearance
- Only one treatment is required to achieve results
What is the recovery period like after FaceTite?
Your recovery period will depend on the number of areas you had treated with the FaceTite procedure. In the treated areas, there will be swelling and bruising for several days to a week after the FaceTite procedure is complete. As swelling begins to subside, patients typically feel able to return to work or their usual activities. This is usually after several days, although it may take longer for some.
Results after FaceTite treatments
Once the swelling fades, you will see the initial results of your FaceTite treatments. This is usually after about one week. You will see continuous improvements over the following weeks and months as your skin continues to restructure itself at the cellular level. Your final results will be healthier, firmer, tighter skin and more defined, sculpted features.
Results with FaceTite will last for 1-5 years.
Am I a candidate for FaceTite?
Almost anyone who would like to reverse the signs of age without a surgical procedure is a candidate for FaceTite. The best candidates should meet the following criteria:
- Are generally healthy
- Do not have a rash or infection in the treatment area
- Are not pregnant or nursing
- Have not had facial injections such as fillers in the last 6-8 months
- Skin laxity is mild to moderate
