FaceTite

FaceTite is a safe, gentle and effective procedure that provides dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck, similar to that of a mini-facelift.  FaceTite utilizes minimally invasive radio-frequency energy and is performed under local anesthesia or light sedation to reduce fat and simultaneously contract the skin. Post procedure, patients are left with surgical-like results without the added downtime. Patients can go home and resume regular activities shortly after.

By avoiding an excisional facelift procedure, patients will be scar free and will benefit from reduced post-procedural swelling and discomfort. This is a less traumatic process with a natural looking final result.  

Results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable after 6 months, and continuing up until 12 months.

Any areas on the face and neck with saggy skin can be treated. This includes the double chin, jowl line and other areas with deep lines and loose skin.
