What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is a nonsurgical facelift alternative that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to target fat and loose skin in the face and neck. By simultaneously melting fat and tightening the skin, a FaceTite treatment can effectively counter common signs of aging to create a more youthful appearance in just one treatment.
What can FaceTite treat?
FaceTite can address a variety of common concerns, including:
• Sagging jowls and neck skin
• Wrinkles and fine lines in the lower face
• Submental fullness beneath the chin
• Marionette lines around the mouth
• Decreased collagen and elastin production
At My Skin Medical Spa, we are proud to offer a minimally invasive procedure that provides facelift-like results with no surgery or scars. If you are interested in combating the effects of aging with the latest nonsurgical methods, FaceTite may be the perfect solution.
Is there any recovery/downtime with FaceTite?
As a minimally invasive treatment, FaceTite does not require an overly lengthy or uncomfortable recovery period. Patients can return to work in three to five days. Common side effects include swelling, soreness, bruising, numbness and itchiness in the targeted areas. Most side effects improve drastically within the first week, include swelling. Patients may also notice an uneven skin texture that lasts two to three weeks as the skin adjusts and contracts.
Compression wrappings may be used to minimize swelling and provide comfort during the first week or two of recovery. The minor incisions will heal quickly without the need for stitches and will not leave behind noticeable scarring. Patients are generally able to resume regular activities about 48 hours after the procedure, although moderate swelling will be visible for the first three to five days and patients may want to stay home during this time.
How long do FaceTite results last?
FaceTite results last an average of three to five years. The treatment may be repeated when needed as the effects of aging continue to develop.
Can FaceTite be combined with other treatments?
Absolutely. FaceTite can be combined with treatments like BodyTite, injectable fillers and neurotoxins, and neck liposuction. The compact FaceTite device can also be used on smaller areas of the body, like the upper arms, to provide nonsurgical fat loss and skin tightening alternatives to procedures like brachioplasty.
Are FaceTite treatments painful?
Local anesthesia is used at the beginning of the FaceTite appointment to numb the treated areas and ensure patients feel completely comfortable throughout the procedure. You may experience some facial soreness and tenderness during the first week of recovery, but this can be managed with pain medication.
