Has your neck, cheeks, and jawline been affected by saggy skin, excess fat, or both? Are your neck and jawline a little less defined because you’ve gained weight? Want a facelift but don’t want the risks or recovery time associated with a major surgical procedure? If so, FaceTite may be just the treatment perfectly suited for your needs.
What Is FaceTite?
Skin tightening and fat reduction techniques, such as FaceTite, treat wrinkles, sagging skin, and other signs of aging in men and women. When looking for a minimally invasive way to lift and contour, FaceTite may be right for you. FaceTite can help you achieve a much more toned or youthful look by restoring, firming, contouring, and smoothing specific areas of your face.
FaceTite utilizes radiofrequency assisted liposuction (RFAL) technology to help you achieve your ideal facial skin contour. Be sure to discuss the potential benefits, effectiveness, and safety concerns listed below with your provider before committing to this relatively new cosmetic procedure.
How It Works
Radiofrequency waves are utilized in conjunction with conventional liposuction in the FaceTite procedure. After applying local anesthesia to the treatment area, your professional medical provider will make a small incision. Afterward, they insert a small device with electrodes and use radiofrequency waves to liquify the fat cells.
While radiofrequency waves are emitted, a separate tube draws the now-liquid fat out of the body using suction. The portion of the procedure involving radiofrequency has a dual purpose, as the waves stimulate the collagen fibers beneath your skin.
Many current systems for skin tightening use radiofrequency, but FaceTite uses sub-dermal (internal) treatment, unlike all other systems that heat the skin above the surface (external).
External radio frequency systems are lacking because they can only heat the skin to a lower temperature than FaceTite’s controlled internal heating. Although multiple sessions of radio frequency can result in some skin tightening, the results are much less effective than those achieved with higher sub-dermal or internal temperatures used safely with the FaceTite system, whose results are comparable to a mini surgical facelift.
Concerns That FaceTite Can Tackle
FaceTite is typically utilized to treat issues on the face’s lower half, including the jawline, the chin, and the cheeks. Patients will generally start noticing drooping or a loss of elasticity in this area due to aging. Jowls begin to lose their contour along the jawline, fatty tissue or fullness underneath the chin or loose, wrinkled skin along the neck are some common issues that can be treated with FaceTite.
Why Consider A FaceTite
When we get older, our skin goes through a natural aging process in which the amount of collagen and elastin it contains decreases. This can result in wrinkly skin, jowls, and other signs of aging caused by sagging skin. FaceTite may be able to assist you if you have noticed other signs of aging, such as sagging skin under your chin, loose pockets of fat that alter the appearance of your face, or other facial wrinkles.
What To Expect For The Treatment
After the procedure, your provider will fit you with compression clothing you need to continue wearing after you get home. These aid in the healing process and ensure that your skin will tighten up as it should.
After your FaceTite procedure, you may be able to go home the same day, but you should strongly consider having somebody else drive you home. It will take one to two days for you to fully recover. Based on our experiences, most patients who underwent the process returned to work after two days.
Preparing For The Procedure
Before undergoing this procedure, you should ideally have maintained a constant weight for at least a few months and be in generally good health overall. The results of your FaceTite treatment could be affected by either gaining or losing weight, which could necessitate an earlier procedure redo.
Discuss your nutritional supplements, herbs, and prescription drugs with your provider. We may ask you to discontinue the use of any medications, such as blood thinners and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that cause you to bleed in the days leading up to the procedure.
You shouldn’t have to worry about driving while you’re wearing compression face wraps, so you might want to think about making arrangements for transportation to and from your appointment.
The specifics of your treatment will determine your outcomes, but improvements should be observable in months. Since the treatment stimulates collagen production, the benefits of the treatment, such as smoother and more toned skin, may become noticeable in a few days.
You only require one treatment at a time for the FaceTite procedure, designed to last for several years. You can discuss with your provider the possibility of undergoing processes such as dermabrasion or fillers to keep your youthful appearance.
Your healthcare provider may also suggest combining FaceTite with other procedures, such as microneedling to achieve the best results, but this will depend on the specifics of your case.
Risks And Side Effects
Even though they are not significant surgeries, cosmetic procedures all have the potential to cause adverse effects. There is a possibility that the area where the incisions were made will experience bruising, swelling, and pain.
On the other hand, compared to different types of procedures, FaceTite is proven to cause fewer side effects overall since the incisions that are made are so much smaller.
Infection and scarring are two FaceTite side effects that occur less frequently.
Who’s Applicable For The Treatment?
People looking for a solution to mild sagging on the lower face or fullness resulting from excess fat are the best candidates for FaceTite. FaceTite is a non-surgical treatment. If a woman or man has more pronounced wrinkles, folds, or sagging skin, they might want to look into other treatments or procedures or be a better candidate for a traditional facelift.
We are here to discuss your choices to determine which option will best meet your requirements, concerns, and long-term objectives if you are unsure what to do.
When it comes to minimally invasive liposuction, FaceTite is an excellent option. You might be a good candidate if you’re starting to show signs of aging but don’t want a complete facelift.
