FaceTite is an advanced cosmetic enhancement technique that offers a minimally-invasive way to reduce signs of loose, inelastic skin affecting the face and neck. For some individuals, FaceTite can serve as an alternative to a facelift, providing patients with smoother facial skin and more defined contours while reducing the need for more invasive surgery and a more extensive recovery period. FaceTite utilizes radiofrequency (RF) technology delivered to subdermal and surface layers of the skin to heat and liquefy fat cells, stimulate the production of collagen, and tighten sagging skin. This innovative procedure from our plastic surgeons here at Luxxery Boutique can be an exceptional option for ideal candidates who desire effective facial rejuvenation and beautifully enhanced contours.
The FaceTite procedure is much less invasive than other facial plastic surgery procedures. In fact, most patients require only local anesthesia or light sedation during the treatment. FaceTite involves the insertion of a thin wand through small incisions strategically placed in inconspicuous areas of the face and/or neck. The wand will deliver radiofrequency energy into the skin to liquefy fat and tighten internal tissues, while prompting the growth of new collagen. Simultaneously, an external wand is placed on the skin’s surface that also delivers waves of radiofrequency energy to create a smoother, firmer appearance in the outer skin layers.
FaceTite treatments generally take about one hour, depending on the extent of treatment required to achieve each patient’s unique goals. Residual scars are typically very small and barely noticeable since they are placed in discreet areas.
Many patients are able to resume normal daily activities approximately three to five days after the FaceTite procedure. Individuals can expect some bruising and swelling in the treatment areas; however, these effects typically resolve within about one week. Patients should refrain from engaging in strenuous exercises and activities for at least one to two weeks after the FaceTite procedure. We will provide you with recovery instructions specific to your unique needs that can help ensure you heal as safely and expediently as possible. While the initial results of FaceTite are often immediately noticeable, they should continue to improve over the next few months as new collagen replenishes the skin.
