The time’s right for FaceTite!
- Posted on: Oct 22 2019
Sun exposure, smoking, genetics and the aging process can take a drastic toll on our skin – especially in the neck, jowls and face. If you’re tired of looking older than you feel, but aren’t quite ready for a face and neck lift, our FaceTite procedure is an excellent option! FaceTite is a minimally-invasive skin tightening procedure that utilizes targeted radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin from within the dermis. Tighten jowls and sagging facial skin up to 36% without stitches or scarring with this incredible skin tightening procedure!
Almost all patients with mild to significant skin laxity, or sagging, can benefit from FaceTite. This procedure is often performed for four types of patient:
- Pre-facelift – those with mild to moderate sagging of the neck and jowl, but not yet experiencing facial sagging or significant neck sagging
- Heavy Neck – those with good skin tone, perhaps younger patients, who need neck lipo along with skin-tightening
- Post-facelift – those who had a face and neck lift sometime in the past and are pleased with the way it has lasted except in the neck and jowl area
- Face and Neck Lift – patients scheduling Face and Neck Lift surgery who add FaceTite to improve the tightness of the area just under the chin and the front of the neck – areas that are usually the first to lose tone and begin sagging
This treatment is performed under IV sedation (similar to the sedation used for a colonoscopy) so the patient feels nothing as the small hand-held applicator passes radiofrequency energy through an internal electrode. There are no incisions, only tiny entrance and exit sites for the probe that heal within days. The entire procedure lasts about an hour and begins to tighten skin immediately with full results at 6 months after new collagen is formed and produced.
Now, you might be asking yourself, is this treatment safe and what does the recovery period look like? Well, FaceTite is considered one of the industry’s most advanced and safest facial rejuvenating and skin contouring procedures. By avoiding invasive surgery, patients can enjoy beautiful, natural-looking results with minimal risk. FaceTite was developed to treat delicate areas of skin without causing cellular damage to tissues, and the applicator is equipped with thermal controls to ensure safety. You can expect to be a little tender, swollen, and perhaps bruised, for about a week but most patients can resume normal activities within a few days of this procedure.
