Even the milder signs of aging can be incredibly noticeable when they start forming on the face. Sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and folds can make you look a lot older and can be hard to cover up using makeup. A lot of people may feel like once they start seeing the signs of aging, it is time for them to get a facelift, but in some cases, surgery may be too dramatic of an option for such mild issues.
At Quintessence Plastic Surgery, we offer an amazing minimally invasive option for facial rejuvenation that can easily address the early signs of aging that rob your face of its youthful beauty. FaceTite is an amazing treatment option that utilizes radiofrequency technology to tighten, tone, and rejuvenate the skin without having to undergo surgery.
How Does FaceTite® Work?
FaceTite utilizes a special handheld device that consists of a long thin tube known as a cannula and an electrode that runs parallel to the cannula and emits the radiofrequency energy. Instead of using large incisions to tighten loose skin, small punctures are made. Once healed, these punctures are undetectable.
During the procedure, the cannula will be inserted into the areas of the face where the skin needs to be tightened and toned. As the cannula is slowly manipulated, the electrode on it emits radiofrequency energy that is delivered directly to the tissues. Multiple passes and adjustments are made to ensure even and complete coverage of the targeted areas.
The radiofrequency energy works to provide two key benefits:
- Internal fat lipolysis – The radiofrequency energy melts away small amounts of excess fat underneath the skin to give the surface a smoother, tighter, and more toned appearance.
- Collagen production – The radiofrequency energy stimulates the production of collagen inside of the targeted tissues. Collagen is a structural protein that strengthens and tightens the skin, which helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
What Problems Can FaceTite® Address?
FaceTite is capable of addressing a wide variety of aesthetic issues on the face. It is also safe to use around sensitive and smaller areas of the face.
FaceTite can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and sagging skin around the:
- Nasolabial folds
Recovering from FaceTite®
FaceTite requires a relatively short recovery period, because the procedure is minimally invasive and does not require long incisions, which would typically take a while to fully heal. Swelling and tenderness are to be expected and should only last around five days. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities after just a few days.
