FACEtite

Medically Reviewed April 2023, by Dr. Ayad Harb, one of the world's leading plastic surgeons

What is FACEtite?

FACEtite is a remarkable technological advancement in non-surgical aesthetic treatments. This innovative approach to facial rejuvenation and contouring uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to target specific areas of loose or sagging skin, providing a more youthful and refined appearance without invasive surgical procedures.

The principle behind FACEtite is the controlled application of radiofrequency energy to both the external and internal layers of the skin. A small probe is inserted under the skin while an external electrode glides over the skin's surface. The dual action of these components heats the underlying tissues, stimulating collagen production and coagulating fat cells, which are then naturally removed by the body.

FACEtite is particularly beneficial for those who desire the results akin to a facelift but are not prepared to undergo extensive surgery or general anesthesia. It offers an intermediate solution that provides significant tightening and contouring with far less downtime and inconvenience.

FACEtite begins with a comprehensive consultation to understand the patient's specific concerns and aesthetic goals. A customized treatment plan is then designed to target areas such as the jowls, neck, or other parts of the face that may show signs of aging or laxity.

The procedure itself is conducted under local anesthesia and typically takes 1-2 hours. Patients often describe the sensation as a gentle warmth without significant discomfort.

The immediate tightening effect is visible right after the procedure, with progressive improvement over the following weeks and months as collagen continues to be produced. The result is a natural and youthful lift that can last for several years, depending on the individual's skin quality and lifestyle.

FACEtite's controlled application of energy minimizes the risk of burns or other complications. The treatment includes built-in measures to ensure uniform heating and prevent overheating, contributing to a safe and comfortable patient experience.

FACEtite's versatility allows it to address various aging-related concerns. Whether it's sagging cheeks, jowls, or neck, the procedure can be tailored to each patient's unique needs and desires. It can also be combined with other treatments, such as liposuction, to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

Benefits of the treatment

FACEtite stands as a remarkable development in non-surgical facial rejuvenation, offering a multitude of benefits tailored to the modern patient's needs and lifestyle. One of the primary advantages is its minimally invasive nature. Unlike traditional facelifts that require large incisions or extensive surgery, FACEtite ensures reduced scarring and a significantly shorter recovery time. Its highly targeted treatment allows for specific areas of concern to be addressed, whether it's sagging jowls or loose neck skin. The technology's precision ensures optimal results, making it an attractive alternative to more invasive options.

Safety and comfort are paramount with FACEtite. The procedure's controlled application of radiofrequency energy minimizes risks and ensures a pleasant experience without significant pain. This controlled energy application leads to immediate and long-lasting results. Patients will see initial tightening right after the procedure, with continued improvement as collagen is produced over several months. This progressive enhancement provides a natural and enduring youthful lift, reflecting the patient's inherent beauty.

The adaptable nature of FACEtite contributes to its appeal, allowing for treatment of various aging-related concerns and unique customization for each patient's individual needs. Its compatibility with other non-surgical procedures offers a comprehensive rejuvenation approach, addressing all aspects of facial aesthetics. The economic viability of FACEtite makes it an accessible option, providing significant aesthetic improvements without the substantial financial commitments associated with traditional surgical interventions.

The lack of general anesthesia and reduced aftercare requirements make FACEtite ideal for those seeking significant facial rejuvenation without extended downtime. Most patients can return to normal activities within a few days, and the quick recovery fosters a more positive treatment experience. The technology ensures natural-looking outcomes without overly dramatic effects, enhancing the patient's appearance subtly and harmoniously.

FACEtite exemplifies SRGN's commitment to providing cutting-edge, patient-centered care that resonates with contemporary demands for safety, efficacy, convenience, and aesthetic harmony. Its blend of technological innovation, clinical precision, and patient-centric design offers a transformative experience that aligns with individual goals and enhances natural beauty. It stands as a testament to the art and science of aesthetic medicine, offering a modern solution that reflects the evolving needs and aspirations of today's discerning patients.

How Soon Will I See Results From FACEtite?

FACEtite provides both immediate and progressive results. Right after the procedure, an initial tightening effect is typically noticeable. Over the following weeks and months, the skin continues to improve as new collagen is produced. The body's natural healing response helps enhance the skin's elasticity and firmness, leading to a smoother and more youthful appearance. Regular follow-up appointments may be scheduled to monitor progress and ensure optimal results. The continuous improvement allows for a natural transformation, aligning with the patient's inherent beauty without the tell-tale signs of a surgical intervention.

Is FACEtite Painful?

FACEtite is designed with patient comfort in mind. Conducted under local anesthesia, most patients experience little to no pain during the procedure. A warm sensation is often described as the radiofrequency energy is applied, but discomfort is generally minimal. At SRGN, we prioritize your comfort and will take all necessary steps to ensure a pleasant experience. Any sensations during recovery are typically manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers, and our dedicated team is available to address any concerns during the healing process.

How Long Does Recovery Take?

Recovery from FACEtite is relatively quick compared to traditional surgical methods. Most patients return to daily activities within 3-5 days, with full recovery typically occurring within a week. Some minor swelling or redness may persist, but these are normal and usually resolve on their own. Following aftercare instructions, such as avoiding excessive sun exposure and adhering to a gentle skincare routine, can further aid in a smooth recovery. Individual experiences may vary, and our medical professionals will provide personalized guidance tailored to your specific situation.

Can FACEtite Be Combined With Other Treatments?

Yes, FACEtite's versatility allows it to be part of a comprehensive facial rejuvenation plan. Depending on individual needs and aesthetic goals, it can be combined with other treatments such as liposuction, dermal fillers, or laser resurfacing. This holistic approach ensures that all aspects of facial aesthetics are addressed, creating harmonious and balanced results. During the initial consultation, our expert team will assess your unique needs and desires to develop a tailored treatment plan that encompasses various modalities, all aimed at achieving your ultimate aesthetic vision.

Is There A Risk Of Scarring With FACEtite?

The risk of scarring with FACEtite is minimal due to its minimally invasive nature. The procedure requires only small entry points for the probe, resulting in tiny marks that typically fade quickly. The absence of large incisions or sutures greatly reduces the likelihood of visible scarring. Our skilled practitioners employ precise techniques to minimize any potential for scarring, and post-treatment care instructions will be provided to assist in optimal healing. The emphasis on minimally invasive technology ensures that FACEtite aligns with modern demands for effective treatments that do not leave noticeable scars, promoting a seamless integration into one's daily life and appearance.
