What Is Facetite?
FaceTite is a new procedure that is comparable to a surgical facelift, without the large scars.
FaceTite provides dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck, which was previously only attainable through a surgical procedure such as a facelift. FaceTite utilizes minimally invasive radiofrequency energy to melt fat and contour skin.
What Kind Of Post-Procedure Care Is Required?
FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia or light sedation. Post-procedure, patients can go home the day of the procedure and can resume regular activities shortly after.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Any areas on the face and neck with saggy skin can be treated. This includes double chins, jowls, nasolabial folds, and other areas with deep lines and loose skin.
How Is This Better Than A Facelift?
By avoiding a facelift procedure with large incisions, patients will benefit from reduced post-procedural swelling and discomfort. This is a less traumatic process with a natural-looking final result.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
Results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable after 6 weeks, and continuing up to 12 months.

Am I a Candidate for FaceTite™?
You may be an ideal candidate for the minimally-invasive FaceTite procedure if you are troubled by loose, sagging skin across the lower face region. This procedure is an excellent way to get rid of jowls, wrinkles, and submental fullness. There is no age requirement for FaceTite candidacy. However, the severity of tissue laxity may affect the results your doctor is able to achieve. This can all be discussed during a face-to-face consultation that allows the surgeon to determine the degree of improvement that's needed. In addition to tissue characteristics, it is important that you're in good physical health and do not have an unmanaged chronic health condition like heart disease or diabetes when you schedule your FaceTite procedure. In addition to your outcome, your health and safety are important to us! We'll conduct a thorough consultation and medical history to ensure you can safely undergo this procedure.
What are the Benefits of FaceTite?
There are several advantages you can gain by undergoing the FaceTite procedure. These include:
- A slimmer silhouette. Due to the strategic use of powerful radiofrequency energy, FaceTite not only stimulates tissue tightening through collagen remodeling, but it also targets excess fatty tissue. This is excellent for the correction of a double chin and a sagging jawline.
- The procedure is minimally-invasive. Performed through tiny incisions, FaceTite does not require general anesthesia. This makes the procedure suitable for the office, avoiding surgical center fees, anesthesia fees (and risks), and also visible scarring.
- Brief recovery period. After your FaceTite procedure is complete, you can be taken home by a loved one. You'll likely rest for the remainder of the day but won't necessarily be groggy or nauseous due to anesthesia. Bruising and swelling are normal side effects of this treatment, and they may take several weeks to fully resolve. However, they may be subtle enough that you can return to work within a week as opposed to two or more weeks for a facelift.
- Enduring results. The outcome of your FaceTite procedure can be appreciated within a very short time, though it can take 6-12 months for you to see the full effects of this procedure. From there, you may enjoy these effects for many years! This can depend on how well you take care of your skin, other professional treatments you have done to support ongoing collagen production, and other factors.
