FaceTite™ is the next best thing to a facelift, without requiring surgery and extensive recovery periods. At Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we are proud to be one of the first practices to provide this technology to patients living in Houston, Sugar Land, Kerrville, and the surrounding areas of Texas.
What is FaceTite™?
FaceTite™ is a new, state-of-the-art, minimally invasive treatment option for mild-to-moderate skin laxity. FaceTite™ provides a dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck, which in the past has only been possible with invasive procedures—such as a facelift —that may leave visible scars. FaceTite™ uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis, or RFAL, which means that it combines gentle radiofrequency energy with a liposuction technique. The radiofrequency component helps to melt fat and tighten the skin while fat is removed, resulting in a much gentler, less invasive and more effective procedure. The FaceTite™ treatment is a great option for patients looking to treat deep lines, loose skin, reduce the appearance of a double chin, and/or improve their jowl line without surgery.
“I view FaceTite™ as a bridge between patients not quite ready for a facelift or not wanting to undergo surgery and those that want something done to improve loose skin on the neck, jowls and face.” -Dr. Layton
How Much Does FaceTite™ Cost?
The cost of a FaceTite™ treatment is about $1,250, but can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Layton will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that matches your specific needs. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We also offer financing services to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
What is the FaceTite™ Treatment Like?
The FaceTite™ treatment is usually performed in-office with local anesthesia, depending on the number of areas being treated. During the procedure, a small, needle-sized device is inserted into the skin. Then, the FaceTite™ device delivers radiofrequency energy to simultaneously melt fat and tighten the skin. Small amounts of fat are vacuumed out of the body during this process, further enhancing your results. After the desired results are achieved, your treatment is complete.
What is the Downtime Like After FaceTite™?
After a FaceTite™ procedure, pain is minimal, but patients usually experience bruising or swelling for up to one week post-procedure. During this time, you will have to wear a facial compression garment for support. We recommend that our patients take Arnica Montana (vitamin K) two days prior to the procedure and a few days following the procedure to minimize unwanted side effects. Most patients are able to return to normal activities within a week of treatment, although exercise and other strenuous activities will have to be avoided for a month or two.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from FaceTite™?
FaceTite™ cannot replace a facelift, but may give results equivalent to 50% of the results that can be obtained by a facelift. Only one treatment is needed with FaceTite™. Some results will be visible instantly, while significant results will be visible within three months, and the full results will become visible within six months of the procedure.
