What Is FaceTite™?
- Posted on: Apr 30 2023
If you are looking for a way to firm up sagging skin and wrinkles but you don’t want to go through the hassle of a surgical procedure such as a facelift, FaceTite™ may be the answer for you!
FaceTite is becoming an increasingly popular way to address sagging, loose facial skin and lines and wrinkles. Facelifts are very effective and they have many benefits on their own – but if you have less severe signs of aging, you may be looking for another, surgery-free option.
Unlike a facelift procedure, FaceTite is minimally invasive: a small incision is made and a cannula (a small tube) is inserted. Radiofrequency energy is used to heat the fat and surrounding tissues; the fat is liquified and then suctioned out through the cannula. The skin contracts and tightens, and new collagen (a protein that helps skin to look youthful and healthy) begins to form.
There are many benefits to choosing FaceTite:
- It is painless. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area where the incision is made. A solution is injected to further numb the area – this solution also makes the fat easier to remove and constricts the blood vessels so there will be less bleeding during the procedure and bruising after the procedure.
- Recovery is quick. Most patients can get back to work within a couple of days, although there may be some bruising and swelling for a couple of weeks.
- The procedure is quick. Most treatments only take about an hour, although it can depend on what areas you are having treated, and only one treatment session is needed, although some patients request more than one.
- The results are long-lasting. Some research has shown that the results of FaceTite can last up to 5 years. However, you will still see the effects of aging! To preserve your FaceTite results for as long as possible, make sure to take care of yourself and your skin.
FaceTite is a state-of-the-art way to get dramatic results, without the hassle, expense, and recovery time needed with surgical procedures. Contact the office of Dr. David Altamira, in Sugarland or Houston, for more information about FaceTite. Call (713) 271-9000 for an appointment today!
