FaceTite is a new technology that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten and contour the skin through a minimally invasive procedure. FaceTite is perfect for small treatment areas that require tightening including: chin, jowls, cheeks, and neck. FaceTite™ is a minimally invasive procedure with minimal downtime and able to deliver results previously only achieved with more extensive surgical procedures.
FaceTite is ideal for those who have aging, sagging skin and sun-damaged skin. If you look older than you feel, FaceTite™ is an ideal way to tighten your skin. This procedure is perfect for patients who want to look younger, but do not want to undergo an invasive facelift procedure. FaceTite™ patients should be in good, general health and refrain from smoking. FaceTite™ works best on patients with moderate fat on their face or treatment area.
During a FaceTite™ procedure, Dr. Marcia Byrd uses a hand-held cannula to deliver radiofrequency energy underneath the skin. During the procedure, which is typically performed under light sedation, a narrow wand is inserted through a needle hole in the skin to melt fat, tighten skin, and tighten the fibers underneath the skin to reduce sagging, leaving smoother, tighter skin. The entire procedure takes less than one hour and is performed with a local anesthetic so patients don’t experience any discomfort. After the procedure, patients see results immediately with continued, gradual improvements for 1-2 months as new collagen is produced.
What to Expect After FaceTite
The radiofrequency will cause your skin to instantly retract a little, so you’ll notice some changes right away. But over the next few days as your face recovers and the production of collagen and elastin in your skin increases, you’ll start to see more shrinkage and smoothing as your final results take shape. The most amazing benefit that FaceTite™ offers is that, over a period of three to six weeks, as your face produces new collagen, you will see continued improvement. The FaceTite™ procedure achieves skin tightening by 40 percent so your skin will look more plump and smooth, and feel softer to the touch. Nonetheless, you can expect some swelling for about a week following the procedure, which will naturally subside on its own. The most amazing benefit that FaceTite offers is that, over a period of three to six weeks, as your body produces new collagen, you will see continued improvement.
FaceTite produces amazing results that may last up to five years, depending on how well you care for your skin, as well as other factors such as genetics, lifestyle, age, and natural skin laxity.
