With the FaceTite treatment, patients can achieve dramatic facial contouring benefits without traditional surgery and cutting. At Facial Plastic Reconstructive & Laser Surgery, we offer this minimally-invasive solution to the men and women living in Hudson Valley, Poughkeepsie, Westchester County and the surrounding Tri-State Area.
FaceTite is a groundbreaking treatment that uses minimally-invasive radiofrequency technology to tighten skin and eliminate fat in the face and neck. Skin laxity and stubborn fat are two of the most common signs of aging, and therefore some of the most frequent concerns for which patients seek treatment. Traditionally, a facelift has been one of the few treatment options for addressing these concerns. While the facelift procedure is undoubtedly effective, it does require surgery and time to recover.
With FaceTite, patients have access to a minimally invasive treatment option that does not involve typical surgery and surgical scars. Using advanced radiofrequency technology, the FaceTite procedure triggers natural changes in the body. When applied to the skin, the radiofrequency energy causes immediate tissue contraction resulting in skin tightening. FaceTite also liquifies and removes excess fat, slimming the contours of the face. Finally, the FaceTite treatment stimulates natural collagen production in the skin to create long-lasting results that continue to improve for several months following treatment. It may be the ideal treatment for addressing your skin laxity, stubborn fat and related signs of, especially of the lower face and neck.
As a minimally-invasive treatment, FaceTite offers many benefits, including:
The FaceTite treatment is typically performed with local anesthesia and sedation instead of general anesthesia. Once local anesthesia is administered and the areas are numb, the FaceTite device can be inserted beneath the skin’s surface. This is done using tiny needle punctures without any surgical incisions. The device is placed precisely at the desired treatment areas where it emits radiofrequency energy. This RF energy will cause immediate skin tightening, while also melting fat and stimulating natural collagen production. Throughout this process, the liquified fat will be removed from the body to create instant and long-lasting results. After addressing all of the treatment areas, the FaceTite device is removed and a dressing is applied for one day to facilitate the healing process. The treatment typically takes about 2 to 3 hours to complete.
After the FaceTite treatment, patients only need a few days of downtime. We encourage patients to take time off of work and other activities during this period. Most patients feel comfortable returning to work and other activities within the first week of treatment. During the first few weeks, it is common to experience tenderness, tingling, bruising and swelling in the treatment area. However, most patients can expect a quick recovery within several weeks of their FaceTite treatment.
Thanks to the immediate skin tightening and fat removal effects of treatment, many patients will notice results within a few days of their FaceTite procedure. These results will become more visible as the swelling fades and the body heals. Additionally, with the increase in natural collagen production, patients can enjoy continued skin tightening benefits in the months following treatment. Results will become most noticeable approximately three months after treatment and will continue to improve for up to 12 months.
