What is FaceTite?
Using radiofrequency technology, FaceTite is a bladeless surgical procedure that enhances skin laxity in different areas, including the face, neck, and jawline. It is less invasive and a safe alternative to a traditional facelift with the need for only a few small incisions.
For anyone looking to tighten skin and address sagging areas of the face, neck and jawline, FaceTite can give a more rejuvenated appearance in as little as a few hours.
What Does the Procedure Entail?
FaceTite is an in office procedure that is a safe alternative to a traditional facelift. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Stanley Harper will go over all the details during the consultation, including a full assessment and what to expect during and after the procedure.
The Facetite procedure will begin with a local anesthetic. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Stanley Harper will insert a probe through a tiny incision to heat the underlying tissues to make them tighten up and contract. The RF energy liquifies fat cells and stimulates collagen production. The skin is enveloped with the RF energy which tightens it as it passes. The long tube is placed under the skin while an electrode passes over the skin’s surface.
A FaceTite procedure takes between 30-60 minutes but will take years off one’s face and other areas. There is little to no discomfort or downtime. The FaceTite has built-in safeguards, including real-time measurements of skin and fat temperature and impedance monitoring for the patient’s comfort and safety.
