What is FaceTite?

 

FaceTite is a new procedure that is comparable to a surgical facelift, without the large scars. FaceTite provides dramatic improvements in skin laxity on the face and neck, which was previously only attainable through a surgical procedure such as a facelift. FaceTite utilizes minimally invasive radio-frequency energy to melt fat and tighten skin.

 

What can Facetite do?

FaceTite is a completely non-surgical skin tightening procedure that utilizes targeted radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin from within the dermis. Any area on the face and neck with saggy skin can be treated, including double chin, jowls, and other areas with deep lines or loose skin.  

 

About the procedure

The treatment is performed under local anaesthetic so the patient feels nothing as the small hand-held applicator passes radiofrequency energy through an internal electrode. There are no incisions, only tiny pin-pricks that heal within days.

 

Who is a candidate for FaceTite?

Some patients may be better candidates for FaceTite or a facelift depending on the severity of their skin laxity. For patients with mild to moderate skin laxity, the lengthier recovery and scars that result from a typical facelift may be avoided through the minimally invasive FaceTite system. In addition to skin tightening, the FaceTite technique can also address fullness and excess fat of the face and neck if needed. FaceTite has a significantly shorter recovery period than a facelift.
