They say that Mother Nature is undefeated. In spite of all of your beauty routines, exercise, and eating right, aging will eventually take its toll on your face in the form of wrinkles and sagging skin. If you’ve already been affected by sagging skin, such as loose skin found around the neck, you can do something about it. One treatment that many people turn to is called FaceTite.
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is an innovative, minimally invasive procedure that combines both skin tightening techniques and fat reduction to recontour the face into a more toned and youthful look. Technically speaking, FaceTite uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL), which is a good alternative to more involved types of cosmetic surgery like the neck lift procedure.
FaceTite Fast Facts:
- One alternative to a conventional neck lift procedure
- Utilizes radiofrequency waves and can be used well in conjunction with liposuction
- Targets wrinkles and sagging skin, particularly on the neck and lower jawline
One thing you’ll appreciate about FaceTite is that the procedure can be completed in just a few hours. No overnight hospital stay is required. You’ll be able to return home immediately after your procedure and return to work in a couple of days.
How does FaceTite work?
If you are getting a FaceTite procedure, your provider will begin with the application of a local anesthetic. They will make a very small incision, allowing for the insertion of a small device that delivers the radiofrequency waves. FaceTite works by using radiofrequency waves to apply heat to the treatment area. The heat liquefies fat and then traditional liposuction cannulas can be used to extract that. The FaceTite procedure has a double function: the radiofrequency waves also stimulate the production of collagen under your skin. So, you continue to see improving results over the course of a couple of months.
Every type of cosmetic procedure has its advantages and disadvantages. When it comes to FaceTite, you are getting a minimally invasive procedure that works in a variety of ways to slim your contours and create a more youthful profile.
The only real drawback to FaceTite is that it does not offer the same dramatic results that you would get from a neck lift procedure. But if you are looking for a little tightening and toning, FaceTite may make a great treatment choice for you.
How long will my results last?
Most people report that their FaceTite results last for several years. And you would only require one treatment at a time. If you want to improve your results, ask your provider about additional treatments like dermabrasion or microneedling.
Schedule Your Consultation
FaceTite is a relatively new technology that is minimally invasive and provides a combination of liposuction and radiofrequency waves. If you have mild to moderate signs of aging, you may make a good candidate if you don’t want to undergo a complete neck lift procedure.
