FaceTite Improves Skin Laxity

FaceTite is a nonsurgical facelift alternative to rejuvenate the face and neck. A minimally invasive procedure, FaceTite uses radiofrequency energy to tighten and firm facial tissue while simultaneously stimulating collagen production. Considered a “Bridge the Gap” procedure, FaceTite is perfect for those individuals not ready for a traditional facelift but interested in an anti-aging treatment that addresses skin laxity and fullness of the face and neck.   

FaceTite can be combined with Morpheus8 Radiofrequency Microneedling, also known as EmbraceRF. Morpheus8 delivers heat energy into the deeper layers of skin stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. By targeting the skin’s surface area, Morpheus8 improves tone and texture of the skin. A powerful combination, FaceTite and Morpheus8 provide the highest quality facial contouring available.

FaceTite Safely Promotes Skin Tightening

An FDA approved procedure, FaceTite uses thermal or radiofrequency energy to safely and effectively promote skin tightening and remove unwanted fat. Through a tiny incision, a small handheld bipolar probe precisely delivers thermal energy both under and on top of the skin. Thermal energy waves dissolve the fat while stimulating collagen production beneath the skin, tightening and firming the treated area.

FaceTite Questions

A revolutionary facial rejuvenation treatment, FaceTite uses radiofrequency heat energy to contour and tighten the skin from the inside out. With FaceTite technology, the bipolar probe delivers thermal energy both under and on top of the skin causing energy to penetrate more deeply than other radiofrequency treatments. The probe is inserted into a small opening in the skin to deliver thermal energy into facial tissues while an external electrode on top on the skin stimulates skin tightening. The probe and electrode work simultaneously, slowly moving over the skin. The heating effect melts targeted fat cells while stimulating collagen and elastin, tightening the structural support of the skin. The result is a more contoured rejuvenated appearance of the face and neck.

FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure, performed in our office using local anesthesia. A small incision is made at the edge of the jaw. The handheld probe is inserted into the incision. The probe is moved slowly, delivering thermal energy both under and on top of the skin. The energy waves melt or liquefies facial fat while stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This combination improves facial contouring and tightens skin. The equipment has safeguards and monitoring in place to ensure that the energy is deliverrf in a safe, precise and effective manner. The procedure itself takes about one hour. 

Recovery from the procedure generally lasts 3 days. Regular activities can resume 48 hours after the procedure. Most patients return to work within the first 3 days. There may be some mild swelling, soreness or bruising from the treated areas, this will resolve within the first week. 

Improvement in skin laxity should be visible within a week of the procedure with tightened facial contours and a more youthful appearance. Continued improvement occurs over the next 3 – 6 months as collagen and elastin continue to be stimulated. Results from a FaceTite procedure last up to five years. A good skin care regimen and applying sunscreen daily can help in optimizing your results.

Recovery time is minimal following a FaceTite procedure. Because the procedure is nonsurgical, performed in our office with local anesthesia, downtime is around 3 days. There is significantly less bruising and swelling following the procedure than a standard facelift. Unlike a facelift, there is no scarring. The incision is minimal and heals quickly. 

If you have mild to moderate skin laxity of the face and neck, mild fullness of the chin or mild facial jowels, you are a good candidate for FaceTite. Patients who are not ready for a facelift or invasive procedure but are interested in anti-aging treatments could benefit from FaceTite. The procedure is also ideal for those who have undergone a facelift and want to support and maintain their surgical results.
