Improving the look and feel of your skin is easy with FaceTite from U Plastic Surgery + Aesthetics. From reducing fine lines and wrinkles to stimulating collagen production, this procedure will give you the long-lasting results you desire. Here’s everything you need to know about FaceTite, so you can choose the right treatment plan for you.
What Is FaceTite?
FaceTite is a minimally invasive, low-risk procedure that targets the areas of the lower face, including the cheeks, jaw, and chin, reducing sagging and improving the look of the skin. This alternative measure to a traditional facelift uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RAFL) to reduce fatty tissue from the lower face and neck and induce your body’s natural collagen production.
FaceTite can tighten the jaw or neckline by up to 45% by contracting the skin rather than excising or removing the tissue.
How Does FaceTite Work?
Radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RAFL) is a revolutionary process that burns fat cells and contracts the skin in the targeted area: in this case, the lower face and neck. Using a RAFL applicator, Dr. Tag will heat the fat cells just below the skin to quite literally melt away these fatty deposits without harming other skin cells. RAFL also increases your body’s natural collagen production, increasing the skin’s elasticity, or ability to “bounce back” from weight gain or stretching.
This minimally invasive procedure avoids the need for excessive surgical incisions and only requires local anesthesia. When undergoing a FaceTite procedure, you’ll need to visit our office a few times to achieve your desired results but then you can go up to five years before needing any kind of touchup treatment. Many patients pair FaceTite with liposuction to further reduce the fat stores in the targeted areas and improve the look of the skin.
What Are the Benefits of FaceTite?
FaceTite at U Plastic Surgery + Aesthetics comes with a wide range of benefits, which is why many of our patients choose this procedure over other skin-tightening procedures like facelifts.
FaceTite Smooths the Skin & Reduces Fat
Our skin tends to produce less collagen as we age, leading to sagging, drooping skin that reduces the youthful look of the face. FaceTite reverses the aging process by reducing the fat deposits in the face, neck, and jawline to provide smoother, younger-looking skin.
FaceTite Works for Men & Women Alike
Men and women choose to use FaceTite to improve their appearance by reducing wrinkles and fatty deposits. Facial contouring procedures are increasingly popular for both genders, allowing everyone to enjoy the benefits of younger-looking skin.
FaceTite Is Non-Surgical & Non-Scarring
Traditional facelifts require surgical incisions to restructure the skin around the face, neck, and jaws. Although the incisions are strategically placed in areas along the hairline or behind the ears, facelifts can cause scarring that many patients want to avoid. Enter FaceTite.
Because FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure, patients experience far less risk of scarring while still achieving great skin-smoothing, fat-reducing results.
FaceTite Recovery Is Shorter Compared to Facelift Recovery
This quick procedure only requires local anesthesia, not general anesthesia, and doesn’t require the surgical incisions that traditional facelifts do. Instead of spending extensive PTO days recovering for one to two weeks, FaceTite allows patients to return home directly after the procedure and return to work within a few days.
FaceTite Produces Long-Lasting Results
For patients looking to achieve excellent results without returning to the office for updates every other month, FaceTite is the way to go. Patients who maintain a stable weight can wait up to five years before another procedure is required.
What Is the Recovery Process Like?
Because FaceTite is an outpatient procedure that does not require general anesthesia, this minimally invasive procedure has a relatively simple recovery process. Patients should expect to take two to five days off of work to rest and heal following the procedure. FaceTite recipients may also experience bruising, numbness, and swelling following their appointment, but this is part of the natural healing process and will disappear within a week or two.
FaceTite or Facelift?
For patients struggling with issues caused by a double chin, sagging neckline, decreased skin elasticity, and fine lines around the mouth, FaceTite may be the best choice for your treatment. However, not every patient is a good candidate for the procedure.
Typically, the decision between FaceTite and a traditional facelift depends on your unique needs and concerns. FaceTite works best for patients looking for less drastic results and a shorter recovery period, whereas a facelift works best for patients who want significant changes.
