FACETITE

FaceTite is a minimally-invasive technique designed for rejuvenating your face. This procedure tightens jowls and sagging skin providing you with similar results as a facelift. This procedure is perfect for patients who are not ready for a facelift or any other surgical procedure yet but have started to notice sagging skin. The procedure leaves no scars or stitches.

This contouring solution is used on the face as well as on the smaller parts of the body. FaceTite technology provides great results without having to go undergo a surgical procedure, and it allows for focal treatment of small areas such as under or above the eyes.

How To Know If Facetite Is For You

Due to aging, daily sun exposure, and smoking, our skin becomes saggy over the years, and our appearance is nott the same as it used to be. FaceTite technology can treat these problems using targeted radio-frequency energy to tighten the skin. There is no long healing process so you are allowed to see people and go to work.

If you fear surgical treatments for rejuvenating your face, then FaceTite is a good solution for you as you will feel no pain during the treatment. It’s one of the safest rejuvenating procedures so you will not be facing any serious risks and complications common from surgical treatments.

FaceTite does not address the issue of excess fat around the neck or jowls. If you wish to treat these problematic areas, you should consider liposuction or another procedure. Patients recover very fast after the treatment, so you will not have to take a long leave.

If you are considering FaceTite, you should consider a few relevant factors. Ideal candidates do not smoke and are not over 65 years old. If you smoke, you should quit smoking prior to the procedure. It is also desirable that you are a healthy person with no serious medical condition.

Although it is not common, a possible complication of the FaceTite procedure is nerve damage. To avoid any such complications, you should seek a qualified Beverly Hills surgeon to perform the procedure. This lessens the possibility of damaging the nerves.

What Is Facetite For?

Facetite is perfect for rejuvenating small delicate areas on the face including:

  • Jowls
  • Neck
  • Cheeks
  • Eyes
  • Mouth
  • Brow
  • Naso-labial folds
  • Jawline
  • Forehead

The Procedure

The FaceTite procedure is performed outpatient using local anesthesia. Radiofrequency energy is passed through an internal electrode using a small hand-held applicator. No incisions are made during the procedure. Instead, small pin-pricks are visible which heal after a short period of time.

The procedure lasts for about 40 minutes and patients will be able to see an instant tightening of the skin which will continue for the next 3-8 weeks. Only one treatment is sufficient for achieving the best results. The skin is slightly swollen after the procedure ant this is expected to last for 3-7 days.

Facetite Recovery Time

After the procedure, your skin will be swollen and tender for several days, which is quite normal. This will disappear within 3-7 days, and you will be able to see the results of the procedure. You should arrange to have a week off work, preferably 7-10 days, as most patients are able to return to work after this period. You should be able to resume your normal activities without any difficulty, although your doctor will give you detailed instructions on what to do or avoid doing during the recovery period.

Redness and bruising may be present during the first week after the procedure, and this will go away together with the swelling. It is possible that you experience mild numbness if the nerves are bruised, but this will subside over the following period.

What To Expect From Facetite Surgery

The effects of the FaceTite procedure can last for as long as 5 years. Most patients notice an immediate improvement after the procedure and the improvement continues over the period of several weeks.You must be aware of the fact that while it does rejuvenate your skin, faceTite cannot completely erase visible signs of aging on your face. The procedure may take 5-7 years off your appearance giving you a fresh look.
