During your FaceTite procedure at BeautyFix Plastic Surgery, your surgeon will insert a wand-like device under the skin to melt away excess fat while simultaneously tightening the skin on the surface to create sleeker and smoother contours of the face and neck. Multiple locations of the body can be treated within the same appointment and each location only takes about 15 minutes to complete. Typically it is performed under a local anesthesia.
FaceTite utilizes RFAL (Radiofrequency-assisted liposuction) to provide controlled thermal heating via internal and external electrodes into dead tissue and fatty areas. This melts the fatty tissue in the face and tightens the skin to improve the contours of the face. It is intended for very precise and small treatment areas located from the neck up.
Facetite works to tighten loose, lax skin while also improving the contours of the face. In addition, FaceTite improves skin tone, texture and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. FaceTite is not a weight loss procedure, it is a face and neck contouring procedure.
FaceTite is considered a new procedure that can be used as a less-invasive alternative to a facelift.
There have been reports of injection site infection, mild numbness and bruising, however, FaceTite is regarded as a generally very safe procedure due to system safeguards that regulate skin temperature and prevent burning. In addition, getting this treatment instead of liposuction minimizes the risks that are associated with a surgical facelift.
FaceTite can oftentimes provide similar results to a facelift without the invasiveness, the extended downtime or the scarring. A Facelift, on the other hand, tends to have longer lasting and more dramatic results. Speak to your surgeon about your beauty goals to determine which procedure is the right one for you.
Most patients require very little downtime following FaceTite.
FaceTite provides instant results and continued improvement will become more visible 3-8 weeks post treatment.
FaceTite is designed to last for many years. Combining this procedure with other procedures and treatments can help to extend the results.
A good candidate for FaceTite is generally considered someone in their late 30’s to early 50’s who is beginning to develop visible wrinkles on their face or neck that they are looking to minimize. FaceTite is intended for small areas of the face, not the entire face. A good candidate for this procedure has realistic expectations for their results and is not expecting the same dramatic results of a Facelift.
No. This procedure is designed for very small and precise pockets of fat in the face to improve facial contours and will not result in weight loss. FaceTite should not be treated as a method to lose weight.
Unlike invasive procedures that provide similar results, FaceTite does not result in any scarring because it does not require any incisions.
The FaceTite procedure can be used in any area above the shoulders which include the neck, jawline, jowls, mouth, cheeks, nasolabial folds, brows, eyes and forehead. Multiple areas can be treated in the same session if desired.
