FaceTite

FaceTite is a non-surgical procedure to tighten skin on the face using radiofrequency (RF) energy. It has quickly become one of the most popular procedures at Spectrum Plastic Surgery and is especially recommended to treat skin around the neck, nasolabial folds, and jowls. It can be used anywhere above the shoulders, and the complementary BodyTite is a treatment specifically for areas below the shoulders. FaceTite is meant to be used in small areas to improve skin laxity and facial contouring. Some younger patients consider FaceTite an alternative to a facelift or as a means of delaying a facelift.

The results of FaceTite are similar to a surgical procedure but without the downtime and discomfort. Results are immediate, but minor swelling can be expected for up to six weeks after the treatment. The RF technology allows the skin to continue tightening for up to one year after the treatment, so patients can enjoy continuously improvements of their face for a full year. This FDA-approved treatment is one of the most advanced and safest procedures for skin contouring and skin tightening available today.

There are numerous benefits to FaceTite, such as:

  • No stitches, incisions, scarring, or intensive downtime

  • Delay a facelift and neck lift for years

  • Enjoy immediate results that keep improving for up to one year

  • This no-surgery approach is ideal for patients with busy lives and who want to look more youthful

Frequently Asked Questions
Does FacetTite hurt?2020-05-05T10:39:17-07:00

FaceTite is designed to be a comfortable treatment. A local anesthetic and tumescent fluid help to increase comfort, and a mild sedative may be recommended for some patients.

Is there any downtime with FaceTite?2020-05-05T10:38:33-07:00

Radiofrequency energy can lead to some minor swelling, but most patients immediately return to most aspects of their daily living after their FaceTite treatment. Patients considering FaceTite for a special event should plan their procedure at least 4 weeks in advance to ensure any swelling has largely resolved. A facial compression garment should be worn from 48 hours – 4 weeks after the procedure when patients are not in public to minimize swelling.

Can other procedures be used in conjunction with FaceTite?2020-05-05T10:37:53-07:00

Yes. Many patients choose to combine procedures and treatments to achieve optimal results. This can include surgical or non-surgical options and your doctor will work with you to determine the best-personalized treatment plan for you.

Do most practices offer FaceTite?2020-05-05T10:41:03-07:00

No. FaceTite and BodyTite are both relatively new procedures, but using radiofrequency technology is well-established. Many practices still recommend a facelift as the only way to dramatically improve skin laxity, but Spectrum Plastic Surgery considers it vital for patients to have all of the information and technology available to make an informed decision. When considering any type of procedure, it is also important to take into account the skill and experience a doctor has with various technologies including FaceTite. Results depend not only on the quality of the treatment but on the knowledge and expertise of the provider.

How long do FaceTite results last?2020-05-05T10:40:08-07:00

Results from FaceTite last an average of 3 – 5 years. A facelift can last up to ten years on average. Choosing FaceTite can help delay the need for a facelift and (in some cases) can serve as a facelift alternative. Patients can always opt for another FaceTite procedure in the future to maintain results.

Patient Reviews

FaceTite is the next best thing to a facelift and is a safe, non-invasive procedure that works at the subdermal level. However, the skill of the doctor administering the treatment is just as important as the treatment itself. Reviews are a useful way to determine which doctor is best for your FaceTite procedure.

By CS, Real Patient Review*

“I met with five different doctors before deciding on Dr. G. She was very comforting. Knowledgeable. She didn’t push me into making any decisions. Five years later I’m still very happy with my choice.”

“I went to Dr. Stutman on the recommendation of a friend … no one has been able to give me results like Dr. Stutman. He is very knowledgeable.”

By TE, Real Patient Review*

FaceTite: More Information

How FaceTite Works

The FaceTite technology ensures that the directional thermal field achieves fat coagulation for tissue remodeling. The dual temperature control allows a skilled provider complete control and optimizes safety. When there is complete energy concentration at the treatment site, patients get the best results possible without surgery. FaceTite results directly correlate to the skill and devotion of the provider, particularly since radiofrequency-assisted procedures for skin laxity and as a liposuction alternative are relatively new.

Studies have shown that a treatment that tightens skin while removing fat is an ideal approach, particularly when it is coupled with contracting the overlying soft tissue. Researchers have called FaceTite a “novel application” using a unique delivery system that lends itself to efficient and uniform results while minimizing risks of thermal damage. Third-party analysts have found that 89% of patients who have undergone FaceTite recommend it.

Complementary Treatments with FaceTite

FaceTite, just like any other procedure, can be complemented by a variety of additional treatments. More aggressive surgical-assisted liposuction, particularly below the chin, can optimize the results of FaceTite. Excess adipose tissue in the submental area can make a person look older and heavier than they are, and a “double chin” can be caused by genetics and aging as well as weight gain.

Some patients combine FaceTite with an eyelid lift or brow lift, as these two areas are often the first parts of the face to show signs of aging. Eyelid lifts and many brow lifts, such as a temporal brow lift, require very small incisions that are easily camouflaged. A personalized treatment plan begins with a consultation with who is skilled in FaceTite treatments.
