FaceTite is an FDA-approved device to tighten and firm facial skin, while removing fatty deposits with radiofrequency (RF) technology. It is a minimally invasive procedure to improve the quality of lax skin on face and neck.
Anti-aging technology for facial rejuvenation: FaceTite
Women and men concerned about excess fat and sagging skin on their faces now have a less invasive alternative to traditional surgical procedures such as liposuction or a facelift. Available in The Woodlands at SGK Plastic Surgery north of Houston, TX, FaceTite tightens skin, reduces fat, and reshapes the contours of the treatment areas using advanced radiofrequency technology. These treatments offer results that nearly match those produced by more invasive plastic surgery with reduced downtime and less scarring.
Benefits of FaceTite
One of the primary concerns about either non-surgical or surgical fat reduction treatments is the skin’s appearance following the procedure. Patients whose skin has lost any of its elasticity may be left with wrinkled or sagging skin once they’ve had fat removed using liposuction. FaceTite addresses this issue using radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis, a technological advancement that tightens skin as fat is extracted. This less invasive approach creates dramatic results with tiny incisions and minimal downtime.
What is the FaceTite procedure?
These minimally invasive treatments are performed as outpatient procedures using either general anesthesia. The procedure begins with Dr. Kim making a tiny incision at the treatment site. In the FaceTite procedure, Dr. Kim inserts a small wand that delivers carefully controlled radiofrequency energy as she passes it through the tissue just below the skin’s surface.
An external radiofrequency transmitter glides across the skin so the procedure heats the tissue both from the outside and inside. The heat breaks apart fatty tissue, which is suctioned away using the internal wand. The procedure typically lasts from one to two hours for each treatment area.
How much does FaceTite cost?
FaceTite is a minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure that can cost $7,000 or more, depending on the extent of treatment and the surgeon's fees. Additional costs may include anesthesia, facility fees, and post-operative care.
What areas of my face can be treated with FaceTite?
FaceTite is best-suited for the lower face and neck. One of the most common cosmetic concerns of both men and women is loose neck skin, jowls, and the loss of definition along the jawline. Fat also tends to accumulate below the chin as we age, creating a double chin. For younger patients concerned about a double chin, KYBELLA® can be an effective treatment. But for individuals who need skin tightening in addition to fat reduction, FaceTite is a breakthrough alternative.
What is the recovery time?
You can return home immediately after your treatment and rest for the remainder of the day. You can expect some swelling, redness, uneven skin, and soreness after the treatment. This resolves on its own in about a week or two. You’ll begin to see your new results as the swelling goes down. The combination of fat reduction and skin tightening produces a smoother, contoured look in the treatment area.
