FaceTite is latest minimally invasive technology to tighten sagging skin on the face and neck with little downtime. It is a nonsurgical alternative to facelift. It uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to target fat and loose skin in the face and neck. Facetite is a single treatment solution without surgery. Our office serves as the Facetite & Accutite Center of Excellence where we train other doctors. Radio frequency (RF) energy is a safe and effective way to heat body tissue. It safely heats body tissue to stimulate collagen and skin tightening.
WHERE IS FACETITE EFFECTIVE?
Facetite can be used on areas of the face that can benefit from skin tightening or lifting. These areas includes
• 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
HOW IS IT DONE?
Facetite is performed in our fully accredited office procedure room using local anesthesia. The area of loose skin or excess fat is numbed with local anesthesia. Majority of our patients prefer local anesthesia with this procedure. We typically offer additional anxiety medicine to help you relax during the procedure. A micro-incision is made in the skin and the Facetite probe is inserted in the area. Our micro-incision is so tiny that stitches are not required. The Facetite electrode delivers RF energy to heat the tissue to a safe temperature while simultaneously measuring the real-time temperature of the skin. FaceTite has safeguards that provide active monitoring of the skin’s external and internal temperatures, ensuring the treatment is safe, precise and effective. Uniform heat distribution throughout the treated areas provides results that are even and smooth. The entire procedure lasts about one hour, and patients can return home immediately after.
HOW MANY TREATMENT ARE NEEDED?
Facetite is a single treatment solution without surgery. Most our patients require only one treatment session. The treatment itself typically takes less than one hour, and poses minimal post-treatment redness and swelling—many patients resume their normal activities right away! We typically perform Facetite with Morpheus8 (microneedling with RF) during the procedure. In certain cases, additional Facetite treatments may be needed to achieve a patient’s desired improvement. FaceTite can also be combined with MyEllevate for a longer lasting results.
WHAT ABOUT RESULTS?
Results with Facetite develop gradually and are long-lasting. Most of our patients see their results in a few weeks.
By simultaneously melting fat and tightening the skin, a FaceTite treatment can effectively treat common signs of aging to create a more youthful appearance in just one treatment.
WHAT ABOUT RECOVERY?
The entire procedure lasts about one hour, and patients can return home immediately after. Our patients return to work in 1 to 2 days most of the time. 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. We offer compression garment to minimize swelling and provide comfort during the first week or two of recovery.
The tiny 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 days and patients may want to stay home during this time.
How much does Facetite cost?
The cost of FaceTite ranges from $4800 to $5500. The final cost depends on the surgeon, facility and whether additional procedure such as Morpheus8 is added to your procedure.
