Many people suffer from sagging skin around the face, neck, and areas under the chin, especially as we age. FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure that combines fat remodeling and skin tightening to rejuvenate aging changes in the lower face, jawline, upper neck and under the chin. It is also an excellent option for young patients that wish to reduce naturally occurring heaviness in the lower face and neck area. FaceTite is a good alternative for those not wanting more complex cosmetic surgeries. Schedule a consultation with our team at Colorado Facial Plastic Surgery in Englewood, CO to see how you can benefit from the FaceTite procedure.
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is a cosmetic procedure designed to help reduce the effects of sagging and wrinkling skin. The target areas include the face, neck, and underneath the chin. Radiofrequency energy is used, and gentle heat is produced to destroy fat cells and contract the skin, causing an increase in collagen production. Collagen plumps your skin and helps to give you a more youthful look. Each appointment takes about 45 minutes per area, and patients normally see results soon after their first treatment. You can expect to see full results in 3 – 6 months.
FaceTite requires very few incisions and uses radiofrequency and liposuction to help tighten skin. While it is considered a safe technology, you should expect some bruising and pain or discomfort after your procedure. FaceTite is considered to be the gold standard in treating anti-aging issues. Conveniently, this procedure can be done within a few hours, and you can go home within the same day. FaceTite offers remarkable anti-aging results; however, results can vary. The main goal is to tighten skin and contour skin.
How it works
FaceTite is a great anti-aging option for people with little to moderate amounts of loose skin and fat on the face and neck areas. For patients with excess skin and fat in those areas may want to choose an alternative solution, such as a surgical face or neck lift. This minimally invasive procedure uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to give a more toned and youthful appearance. During the procedure, we use local anesthesia to numb the treated areas. Then, a cannula, a small hand-held tool with internal and external electrode mechanism, is inserted through a tiny incision just beneath the skin. Radiofrequency energy heats fat in the designated treatment areas. Once the fat is liquefied, it is then removed through suction. After the FaceTite treatment ends, the Morpheus 8 procedure begins as it uses a separate handheld device with microneedles to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin for a smoother, tighter appearance. Results could be visible shortly after the procedure or take up to eight weeks to show and can be long-lasting if maintained through proper diet and exercise.
Benefits of FaceTite
The radiofrequency treatment used in FaceTite penetrates further than other nonsurgical treatments, leading to a more toned and lean silhouette. The skin tightening, fat destruction, and facial contouring can lead to a younger-looking face. This procedure is done under only local anesthesia and requires small incisions, resulting in less visible scarring. The recovery period for FaceTite is relatively short. You will be eligible to go home the same day as your procedure. Longer-lasting results are also reported with this treatment. You may be able to go up to five years without needing another procedure. You can also combine this treatment with others to achieve the exact look you want. With FaceTite, you can look younger and gain a more toned and contoured look.
