One of the most obvious signs of aging is the appearance of sagging skin on the face and neck. Patients seeking a less invasive facial rejuvenation option may benefit from FaceTite. FaceTite is a highly effective skin treatment that employs targeted radiofrequency (RF) energy to tighten and lift facial skin and reduce excess fat without causing cellular damage. Qualified candidates can achieve exceptional results with far less recovery and expense than traditional surgery.
Healthy patients that have mild to moderate skin laxity are usually considered good candidates. During your consultation, Dr. Jeannie Khavkin will discuss your goals and options for the best way to achieve them. Nuance Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery offers many alternative skin procedures if FaceTite is not the best solution for your aesthetic needs.
FACETITE CAN ADDRESS:
- Saggy jowls
- Excess neck skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles on the cheeks
- Stubborn fat underneath the chin
- Issues with decreased elastin and collagen production
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dr. Jeannie Khavkin administers topical, local and oral sedation. During treatment, a small incision is made through which a canula is placed. RF heat energy is then emitted to liquefy fat, activate collagen production, and tighten tissues internally. As this is happening an external wand attached to the canula distributes RF energy to the surface in order to rejuvenate, smooth, and tighten the overlying skin.
Patients will see about a 30% improvement within the first week after the skin procedure. Final results will come gradually for up to one year.
Incisions are small enough that the scarring is minimal and virtually undetectable. Patients can be tender and swollen for 5-7 days and should be able to return to work and exercise after the initial week recovery. Redness and bruising may also occur.
