Face Tite

The natural aging process has a way of changing the face in a manner that doesn’t always match up with the youthfulness a person feels inside. For men and women alike, facial skin often begins to become loose and sag over time. As collagen and elastin levels naturally decrease, it’s not uncommon to notice the development of wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin around the eyes, nose, mouth, and jaw line. While these changes are natural, they can cause a person to look older than their years.

In the past, individuals looking to reduce the visible signs of aging often turned to facelifts to get the job done. While this traditional cosmetic procedure is still a viable solution, prospective patients now have more options than ever when it comes to diminishing wrinkles and fine lines as well as tightening the skin around the jawline and neck. FaceTite is an innovative treatment option on the market today that has become highly popular with patients looking for positive results using a less invasive treatment method.

Understanding FaceTite

Patients who elect to use FaceTite to both lift and tighten skin on and around the face do so with the peace of mind that comes with selecting an FDA approved form of cosmetic technology. FaceTite utilizes radiofrequency energy waves to specifically target problem areas and simultaneously lift and tighten to leave skin with an overall smoother appearance. Radiofrequency energy waves are used in combination with liposuction technology that can remove fat cells as they are melted away underneath the skin. This is done through a minimal incision which promises a patient won’t be left with significant scarring. As an added bonus, patients who undergo FaceTite treatments experience a minimal recovery time, meaning it’s simple to get back to everyday routines and responsibilities.

How FaceTite is Administered

FaceTite can be performed in the comfort of an attending physician’s office as an out-patient procedure. The efficient and safe nature of this treatment means patients will most likely be able to return to work or everyday activities immediately following the procedure or at most, within a couple of days. The handheld device used to administer FaceTite is made up of two active probes. They are located at the end of the arm and handle. While one probe is inserted into the fatty tissue of the treatment site, the other rests on the outside of the skin. The probes work in combination to administer the radiofrequency waves and remove fat cells. The attending physician is able to control the energy flow and temperature from a centralized digital system, ensuring that the patient experience is both successful and completely comfortable for the entire procedure.

The Benefits of FaceTite

This type of cosmetic technology has shown to be extremely successful at treating very targeted and specific areas under the eyes, around the brow, under the chin, around the cheeks, and along the jowls. The results are close to what would be achieved with a traditional facelift without the extended recovery period or scars involved. Patients often report skin that is smoother, healthier and more youthful looking after undergoing FaceTite.

Safety

Because FaceTite is an outpatient procedure, there is very little risk involved. The use of local anesthetic means patients doesn’t have to worry about the potential for any of the risks related to general anesthesia. Similarly, a short recovery time associated with FaceTite means risks associated with illnesses and infections from lengthy hospital stays are eliminated as well. Patients who experience redness or swelling at the treatment site are often advised to use over-the-counter pain medications to counter the effects which generally disappear within a day or two following treatment.

Cost

The cost of FaceTite will be different from patient to patient and very much depends on the number of sessions required to achieve successful results. The team at the St. The Louis Laser Liposuction Center is happy to offer a variety of financing options to help make treatment convenient and manageable.
