FaceTite also causes treated fat to coagulate and dissolve over time before it is filtered out of the body. Ideal for those with mild to moderate signs of aging who seek to achieve significant results without the downtime and scars associated with traditional facelifts, FaceTite presents a minimally invasive alternative. Patients also seek FaceTite to refresh the results of previous plastic surgery procedures. With a recovery time remarkably shorter than surgical options and no need for stitches, patients can enjoy a rejuvenated look with minimal interruption to their lives.

FaceTite is very similar to another treatment we offer, BodyTite®. FaceTite addresses different treatment areas and may involve liposuction.

Am I a Candidate for Facetite?

If you are troubled by excess fat and mild to moderate skin laxity on your lower face, jowls, chin, and neck, you might be a good candidate for FaceTite. FaceTite is also excellent for addressing loose skin and extra fat in the submental area, which patients often refer to as a double chin. Male and female patients alike love FaceTite because it is a fantastic alternative to facelift surgery with little downtime, which is why it is commonly referred to as the “non-surgical” facelift.

Preparing for FaceTite

bodytite toolThere isn’t much you need to do to prepare for your FaceTite procedure. During your consultation, you will feel comfortable candidly discussing your concerns and aesthetic goals. Your provider will conduct a review of your medical history, and you will learn more about the FaceTite procedure. Together, you will decide if FaceTite is the right treatment for you.

Before your FaceTite appointment, you may be asked to discontinue taking certain medications like NSAIDs and blood thinners, as this could increase bleeding. Additionally, though FaceTite is performed under local anesthesia and will not affect your ability to drive yourself home, you might feel more comfortable making transportation arrangements with a friend or family member if you have received pain medication.

The FaceTite Procedure

facetite treatmentBefore your FaceTite treatment begins the treatment area will be numbed with a local anesthetic. A small incision is strategically placed in the targeted area using a medium-sized needle, allowing for the insertion of a slender probe directly beneath the skin. This probe acts as a conduit for radiofrequency energy, which is meticulously directed to the areas rich in collagen and fat. The energy gently heats these layers, fostering an environment where collagen production is stimulated, and fat cells are efficiently broken down. This process not only tightens and lifts the skin but also enhances its texture and overall quality, leading to a noticeably more youthful and contoured facial profile.

Once your FaceTite treatment is complete, you will be fitted with a compression garment.

FaceTite Recovery and Results

After your FaceTite treatment, you can expect to experience mild discomfort, swelling, bruising, and/or numbness in the treated areas. This will quickly diminish. Most of our FaceTite patients feel comfortable returning to work and normal activities in just a few days. You will be advised to refrain from exercise and more strenuous activities for a couple of weeks.

You should begin to notice early results of your FaceTite cosmetic procedure in as little as one week. The results will continue to progress over the next few weeks as collagen production is increased.

FaceTite FAQs

How much does FaceTite cost?

Each of our patients has unique anatomy and cosmetic goals, which is why FaceTite treatment is fully customized. The cost of your FaceTite treatment will be determined by the treatment area(s) and the extent of treatment required. Following your consultation, we will give you an accurate summary of the cost of your FaceTite treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

Only one FaceTite treatment is needed to achieve optimal skin tightening and fat melting results!

Are FaceTite results permanent?

The skin tightening benefits of FaceTite are long-lasting, yet the natural aging process will continue. Patients tend to come in for a touch-up FaceTite treatment after 3-5 years. The best way to preserve your FaceTite results is to maintain a stable weight.

Can I combine FaceTite with other treatments?

Absolutely. Many of our patients choose to combine their FaceTite treatment with Morpheus8 RF microneedling, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Morpheus8 is ideal for treating concerns like surgical scars, wrinkles, and acne scars.
