FaceTite is a minimally invasive treatment often considered the most powerful non-surgical alternative to a facelift. This advanced facial rejuvenation technology is designed to improve loose skin and/or excess fat in the face and neck, thereby creating a more youthful facial contour without the need for surgery or extensive recovery time. Board-certified plastic surgeons Tom Liu, MD, MBA and Jerome Liu, MD, MSHS are thrilled to offer FaceTite for Sacramento patients who would like an effective yet minimally invasive option to correct signs of facial aging.
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is a treatment that emits radiofrequency (RF) energy both above and below the skin to liquefy fat, tighten loose skin, and stimulate collagen production. During treatment, a small probe is inserted subdermally through a tiny incision in the lower face or neck; an overlying wand then moves across the surface of the skin in tandem with the probe, evenly distributing the RF energy across the length of the treatment area. FaceTite is then able to rejuvenate the facial tissues both internally and externally, allowing patients to achieve a sharper jawline and facial contour without the need for a facelift.
What Concerns Can Be Treated With FaceTite?
Although FaceTite cannot achieve results that are as effective as a surgical facelift, this minimally invasive treatment can still greatly improve many signs of facial aging. Key benefits of FaceTite include the ability to enhance:
- Skin laxity in the lower face
- Descended fat around the face and neck
- Jowling along the chin and jawline
- A sagging or undefined neck contour
The radiofrequency energy emitted by FaceTite can also remodel the collagen structure to help ensure the rejuvenative effects of treatment are long-lasting. Since incisions are made in discreet areas of the face or neck, patients experience little to no noticeable scarring.
How is Treatment with FaceTite Performed?
FaceTite is available as an in-office treatment at our Sacramento practice. Local anesthesia and/or light sedation are often utilized to improve patient comfort, but our plastic surgeons can also administer medications to further enhance the treatment process. After tiny incisions are made in the designated areas, a narrow probe will gently apply RF energy to the underlying structures of the skin. A patented wand will simultaneously deliver RF energy to the surface of the skin until the entire region has been treated. FaceTite doesn’t require extensive downtime, but some swelling and bruising may be noticeable after treatment. Your results should be apparent soon after your FaceTite appointment and improve over the next 12 weeks.
FaceTite may be the perfect solution for patients who desire noticeable facial rejuvenation without the invasiveness and downtime required by facial plastic surgery.
