Are you starting to notice fullness and extra skin along your jawline and don’t have the time or money for a facelift? FaceTite uses radio-frequency energy to tighten skin and remove excess fullness of the lower face without visible scars. It can be done right in the office while you are awake in about an hour.
FaceTite is done right in the office with tumescent anesthesia. This means that a dilute numbing solution is injected under the skin. Once this is placed, you will not be able to feel the procedure. Some patients opt to also take a pill to curb any anxiety prior to the procedure as well, but some do not need this.
Next, several puncture sites are made under the chin to allow the probes to be inserted. After that, the probe will work to tighten the fibers underneath the skin as well as the surface of the skin. Highly sensitive temperature sensors monitor the temperature throughout the procedure to ensure that the optimal endpoints are reached for the best results. You will see some immediate skin tightening and loss of fat under the chin. Most patients need some additional neck liposuction after the FaceTite procedure which is included in the cost. Once the procedure is done, a compressive garment is placed which stays on for 48-72 hours.
Most patients do not experience a lot of pain or bruising; however, you will be given a prescription for pain medication just in case.
It is expected to have mild swelling and numbness for the first 2-3 days. After that, you can remove the compressive dressing during the day to go to work, run errands, or relax at home. It is advised to keep the dressing on at night for an additional 1-2 weeks as needed for any residual swelling.
Results can be seen immediately, but most minor swelling will subside at about 6 weeks after the procedure. The skin continues to tighten after that over the next 12 months.Watch How FaceTite Works
