What Is FACETITE?
An advanced contouring system to treat a patient’s face and their small areas. FaceTite is minimally invasive and is the next best alternative to facelifts without the invasive surgery. You can work safely in the sub-dermal plane as you contract and contour tissue using RF technology.
How Does FaceTite Work?
FaceTite utilizes radio-frequency energy to break down fat cells and tighten the skin. The temperature settings are controlled by the operator for predictable and effective treatments. First, a local anesthetic solution is injected underneath the skin. Three small incisions are made under the chin and below each earlobe on each side of the neck. Next, the FaceTite probe is inserted under the skin through each of these access ports, while an external probe rests on the skin surface. Heat generated between the two probes melts fat below the skin and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. As collagen and elastin are formed over time, the skin will tighten and appear more youthful.

What Kind of Post-Procedure Care Is Required?
After your treatment, a compression garment will be applied around your face and neck to reduce swelling and promote healing. This can be removed at home for showering, and permanently removed within a few days after treatment. Most patients resume their usual activities within 48 hours of treatment and return to work within 2-3 days after treatment. The skin incisions (3) are small and heal quickly, without noticeable scarring. Your skin texture may feel uneven for 2 to 3 weeks after the procedure as your skin contracts.
