FaceTite is an FDA approved technology that lifts and tightens skin on the face. FaceTite uses radio frequency energy that tightens, smooths, and lifts the targeted area on the face or neck regions. It uses RFAL (radio frequency assisted liposuction technology) which is computer controlled. FaceTite can give skin tightening and lifting that approaches the results seen with traditional open surgical facelifts, but it does not require the large incisions or scars that facelift uses. Because it is minimally invasive it has a shorter recovery time, so FaceTite is a great option for people who do not want the long recovery of the traditional facelift surgery.
The hand piece itself has two active probes. These are located at the end of the arms that stem from the handle. One probe is placed in the fatty tissue on the inside of the patient, and the other probe simply rests on top of the outside skin. Both probes work together to send radio wave energy to the skin as well as the subcutaneous tissue. They are able to control flow and temperature, due to the fact that they each work like opposite ends of a battery. The base probe is the one that controls temperature and flow, by use of a hand piece.
Face Tite is used for more specific areas such as the area below the eyes, the brow, cheek, chin, and jowls. It is similar to a face-lift in the way that it smooths and tightens the specific areas, but it has less recovery time and smaller scars. Only tiny incisions are necessary, and you’ll be back to new in just a couple of days!
