What is FaceTite® ?
FaceTite® is a state-of-the-art non-surgical option for lower face and neck tightening. It is a single treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to improve the jawline and neck contour. You can expect to see tighter, smoother skin within the first few weeks and this continues to improve over the ensuing 6 months. Results are long-lasting and require minimal downtime.
How is FaceTite® performed?
FaceTite® is a single treatment that is performed under local anesthesia in our office while you are fully awake. During a typical FaceTite® procedure, a small probe is inserted under the skin and radiofrequency energy is applied directly to targeted areas. Radiofrequency energy has the ability to tighten tissues as well as stimulate collagen production underneath the skin for a natural improvement that lasts. Most patients experience some initial tightening as well as continued enhancements of the skin over time as new collagen is produced. FaceTite® technology creates three-dimensional improvement of skin laxity.
How long is the recovery and when can you see results?
Slight swelling or bruising may occur after FaceTite ® treatment, which typically subsides within 24 to 72 hours. Most patients are able to return to normal activities within 2 to 3 days after this procedure. This is a low-risk treatment, any other relevant safety information that may apply to you will be discussed during your consultation. With optimal treatment and a good skincare regimen, your smoother, tighter skin can last for several years. Although normal aging is ongoing and cannot be prevented, the FaceTite ® procedure will help you look more youthful for a longer period of time.
Can FaceTite® be performed on the body?
Like FaceTite® for the face and neck, we perform state-of-the-art BodyTite® to address tightening of loose skin along the arms, thighs, knees, abdomen, back and the small areas of fullness along the sides of the breasts. Similar to the FaceTite®, BodyTite® results are long lasting with minimal downtime. BodyTite® may be performed with or without liposuction based on your individual needs.
What is BodyTite® ?
BodyTite® is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure delivering results previously only achieved through more excisional surgical procedures. BodyTite is powered by directional RF resulting in the coagulation of fat, using RF-induced heat results in radiofrequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL).
- Controls heating to ensure that treatment results are consistent, avoiding over-treated or under-treated areas.
- Real time temperature monitoring in deep fat areas and on the skin surface.
- Directional RF builds a temperature profile providing different treatment modalities for each tissue layer, from the deep fat layer up to the skin’s surface.
