FaceTite

For better or worse, the way we feel about ourselves is often closely intertwined with our outward appearance. If your facial skin is loose or sagging, it might prevent you from feeling your most confident and lively. For years, face lifts have been the dominant form of addressing this problem. FaceTite™ is a minimally invasive, facial contouring procedure that can effectively treat many of the same aesthetic concerns.

What is FaceTite™? How Does it Work?

FaceTite™ is an FDA-approved device that uses radiofrequency waves to melt away excess fat in targeted areas. This process is called Radiofrequency-Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL). The radio waves also stimulate collagen production and tighten loose skin as the device moves. The process involves inserting a cannula at key sites to apply heating energy during the procedure.

What Areas Can FaceTite™ Treat?

As we age, it’s natural for different facial and bodily features to loosen and drift with gravity. FaceTite™ is commonly used on the face and neck to treat signs of aging. Some popular uses for this device include:

  • Drooping brows
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Low or prominent jowls
  • Wrinkles around the eye
  • Sagging skin on the neck
  • Displaced facial fat

The FaceTite™ Process

If you undergo FaceTite™ in Chicago, your appointment will take anywhere from 90 minutes to 2 hours to perform. No general anesthesia is required to undergo this procedure; instead, patients will typically receive local anesthesia to numb the area. Once the procedure is complete, patients can return home to recover. Patients can resume most normal activities after approximately 48 hours, but may experience swelling and discomfort for five days or more.

What Makes FaceTite™ Different from a Face Lift?

The FaceTite™ procedure is generally chosen by patients because of the relatively low invasiveness compared to a traditional face lift. With a traditional face lift, soft tissues must be cut and re-positioned for a more youthful appearance. By comparison, the non-surgical FaceTite™ process is a minimally invasive rejuvenation treatment. Additionally, patients who undergo the FaceTite™ procedure experience less down time.
