Have you ever wished you could defy symptoms of aging and turn back the clock on your skin without having to undergo an invasive cosmetic surgery? FaceTite is an innovative new nonsurgical procedure that uses cutting-edge radiofrequency (RF) technology to target loose skin, wrinkles and fat pockets on the face, neck and other small areas of the body. By simultaneously melting stubborn fat and tightening loose facial skin, FaceTite effectively erases visible signs of aging and restores a more youthful appearance to your skin in just one treatment.
At Desert Aesthetic and Vein Center, we pride ourselves on providing a wide array of aesthetic services, to Brawley patients, that improve your skin’s tone, elasticity and overall appearance. We offer FaceTite as a minimally invasive alternative to more aggressive skin-tightening procedures, such as a facelift, to provide stunning, youthful results without the need for surgery or scars. If you have wrinkles, fine lines or loose skin on the lower face and neck, FaceTite can help to naturally restore a young, firm complexion for years to come without the added risks and downtime that often come with surgery.
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is a minimally-invasive, nonsurgical skin-tightening procedure that delivers breakthrough radiofrequency (RF) technology through a specially designed handheld applicator that works to target both the surface of your skin as well as underlying tissues. This applicator allows for both the inner and outer layers of skin to be heated, which induces fat lipolysis internally while simultaneously creating a skin contracting effect externally. The dual-thermal energy also naturally stimulates a tissue-healing reaction within the skin, which generates new collagen production in treated areas for months after your procedure. This means that your skin will not only be instantly lifted following your treatment, but will continue to tighten and improve in appearance gradually over time. The dual-thermal approach of FaceTite is hailed for providing the transformative results of a facelift in one treatment, without general anesthesia or invasive techniques.
FaceTite is the perfect contouring solution for the face, neck and other small areas of the body. FaceTite is commonly used to address the following concerns:
- Sagging jowls and loose neck skin
- Double chin or submental fat
- Wrinkles and lines present on the lower face
- Nasolabial folds (lines that extend from the bottom of the nose to the mouth)
- Marionette lines (lines that extend from the edges of the mouth to the chin)
- Decreased collagen and elastin production
FaceTite may also be combined with additional aesthetic services offered at Desert Aesthetic and Vein Center to create a more comprehensive rejuvenation. BodyTite, which utilizes the same RF technology as FaceTite, works to firm the skin and slim the contours of larger areas of the body, such as the abdomen, side flanks, thighs and upper arms. BodyTite is one of few body-shaping procedures that work to melt fat and tighten skin simultaneously, helping to achieve a beautifully toned and youthful figure that lasts. Our Imperial Valley patients may also combine FaceTite and BodyTite treatments with liposuction to assist with additional fat removal from your treatment areas.
What to Expect From Your FaceTite Procedure
FaceTite treatments at Desert Vein and Aesthetic Center are performed in-office using a local anesthesia and mild oral sedation to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Once numbed, a small, pointed probe attached to the FaceTite applicator device is used to create a minuscule hole near the edge of the jaw, requiring no stitches and leaving no scar. The probe, also known as a cannula, is then inserted into this opening to deliver RF thermal energy directly to stubborn fat cells beneath the skin’s surface, subsequently melting away fat and smoothing the treated area.
At the same time, an external electrode also attached to the application device is slowly moved across the outer layers of the skin. This electrode works in concert with the heated probe to deliver RF thermal energy to the outside of the skin as the probe heats the inside, triggering an external collagen contraction that lifts the skin and effectively restores elasticity. The controlled directional energy distribution of the FaceTite applicator maximizes the use of RF energy in the treatment area while protecting against unnecessary tissue damage. FaceTite technology also has a system of safeguards in place that regulate the skin’s temperature during the procedure to decrease the risk of thermal injuries. By avoiding potential complications associated with excisional cosmetic surgeries, FaceTite delivers beautiful, natural-looking results with less risk and downtime.
What to Expect From FaceTite Recovery
As a minimally invasive procedure, FaceTite requires significantly less downtime for your recovery than traditional surgical procedures, and less discomfort. The most common side effects experienced after a FaceTite procedure include swelling, bruising and tenderness in the treated areas; however, these will usually subside in about one week. Most patients are able to return to their normal daily activities in as little as three to seven days. During your first week, Dr. Fisher may have you wear a head garment to promote faster healing and prevent complications.
The results of your FaceTite treatment will be immediately apparent, but will continue to improve dramatically in appearance within the first week as swelling and bruising subside. Because FaceTite stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin in your skin, the treatment is proven to continue tightening and combating skin laxity for three to six months as your internal tissues heal and regenerate. The gorgeous results of your FaceTite procedure can last up to five years, and while your skin will continue to age naturally, a healthy lifestyle and proper skin care regimen can help prolong the vitality of your results.
If loose skin, wrinkles and fat are prematurely aging the appearance of your face and neck, FaceTite can provide a dramatic improvement to the quality of your skin without the need for extensive surgeries or downtime.
