What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is a minimally invasive skin tightening solution that is ideal for rejuvenating the face and neck. It uses RFAL technology, which stands for radiofrequency assisted liposuction. The FaceTite applicator is a two pronged device. One prong is a needle that is inserted beneath the skin’s surface through a small incision. This component can reach deeper layers of skin tissue, where it delivers radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. This also enables the removal of fatty tissue from beneath the skin to enhance the contours of the face. The second prong delivers radiofrequency energy from the skin’s surfacing, ensuring that RF energy is delivered across the entire treatment area.
What are the Benefits of FaceTite?
The benefits of the FaceTite make it a great alternative to surgical treatments, especially for younger patients who desire skin rejuvenation but aren’t ready for excisional surgery. These benefits include:
- Reduce sagging skin
- Reduce lines and wrinkles
- Reduce stubborn fat
- Improve the jowls
- Improved skin laxity
How Much Do FaceTite Treatments Cost?
The cost of FaceTite treatments will vary as we determine the best approach to your treatment, which will depend on the size and number of the treatment areas as well as the extent of treatment needed for optimal results. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals so we can determine these variables and identify the best treatment plan. At this time, we will be able to inform you of the cost of treatment. If you have any concerns regarding the cost of your treatment, you may want to consider one of our financing options.
What is the FaceTite Treatment Like?
The FaceTite treatment begins with the application of a local anesthetic to the treatment area. Then, a small incision is made so that the FaceTite device can be inserted beneath the skin’s surface. Once beneath the skin, the FaceTite device heats fat in the surrounding area while also stimulating collagen production in the nearby tissue. This process typically takes less than an hour and does not cause any scarring.
Is There Any Downtime After FaceTite Treatments?
FaceTite requires significantly less downtime than surgery, but you should still expect to take a few days off of work and other activities. You may experience swelling, redness or bruising in the treatment area during the first few days. Most patients return to work and light activities within 2-3 days, while it can take up to 2 weeks to make a full recovery and get completely back to normal.
What Can I Expect After the FaceTite Treatment?
After FaceTite treatments, we’ll apply a compression garment to the skin that should be worn for 1-2 weeks. It will help reduce swelling and facilitate the recovery process. Your results will become increasingly visible in the weeks and months following treatment as any side effects fade and as new collagen becomes implemented into the skin tissue. Full results should be visible within 3-6 months. Patients only need one treatment session to achieve optimal results, and the results will last for several years.
