What is FaceTite™?

FaceTite™ is a totally non-surgical, sub-dermal procedure that uses radiofrequency to tighten loose skin around the face and jaw up to 36%. It’s able to deliver the same amazing results you get with a mini-facelift, but is minimally invasive. There is no surgery involved, so there are no stitches needed or residual scarring afterwards.

Some patients choose to combine liposuction in the neck or jowls area for even more contouring, resulting in a more youthful overall appearance.

Dr. Joseph Perlman, board certified plastic surgeon at The Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, is located in Spring, TX. Our facility serves residents of Houston, including The Woodlands, Atascocita, Conroe, Pasadena, and Baytown areas. Our motto and our mission is to bring out the best in our patients

What are the Benefits of FaceTite™?

There are many benefits to having the FaceTite™ procedure done. Some of the more common benefits include:

  • FDA-approved procedure and considered one of the safest facial procedures
  • Can be performed with local anesthesia
  • Fewer complications compared to plastic surgery using general anesthesia
  • Natural looking results
  • Can treat delicate skin areas without causing tissue damage
  • Results last up to five years
  • Procedure typically takes only 30-60 minutes
  • Visible results instantly, with continuing improvements seen over 3-8 weeks as new collagen is formed
  • Minimal downtime needed
How Does FaceTite™ Work?

FaceTite™ is done under local anesthesia so there is no patient discomfort. Radiofrequency energy is passed from the hand-held applicator through an internal electrode placed just beneath the skin. The RF energy can be specifically applied to exactly where it’s most needed.

The RF energy causes the tissue to heat up, which triggers the collagen to contract. As it heals, the tissue and facial skin tightens and lifts. The patient usually feels nothing during the procedure.

The FaceTite™ procedure takes between 30 and 60 minutes. Your skin will look better immediately following treatment, but the best results are typically seen after 2-6 weeks.

Is FaceTite™ Right for Me?

If you have loose, saggy skin or excessive wrinkling on your face or neck, you may be a good candidate for the FaceTite™ procedure. It may be the perfect solution if your face is aging faster than it should but you don’t want a traditional facelift. It can also be ideal if you’ve already had a facelift and just want to sustain your youthful look without having additional surgery.

During your initial consultation with the doctor, he’ll discuss your options with you and help you determine if the FaceTite™ treatment is the best choice for you, based on your medical history and your own unique aesthetic goals.

What Are the Side Effects of FaceTite™?

Some of the most common side effects of FaceTite™ include:

  • Swelling – especially on the second day after treatment; may last 7-10 days
  • Inflammation – usually resolving on its own within a few days
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Mild numbness has been reported, usually due to bruised nerves; resolves itself within 3-4 weeks
The Technology

FaceTite uses the same technology as is used in BodyTite and NeckTite – RFAL (Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction) except with FaceTite there is no aspiration so the technology used is RF – Radio Frequency.

RF or Radio frequency is used in MRI machines and many other medical treatments and has been used to treat patients for over 75 years, Invasix FaceTite is the Facial Cosmetic Surgery Revolution that now brings this proven technology to Cosmetic Surgery.

Patient Safety

FaceTite, as with BodyTite and NeckTite is exclusive to the Invasix platform and provides the Cosmetic Surgeon with constant feedback in order to monitor and maintain the amount of RF energy and heat used during a procedure and has many built in safety features to ensure that patient safety is paramount.

Get Optimal Outcomes Without Surgery Risks

We are excited to see the promising results that are being achieved with the controlled use of radiofrequency technology. Some of the common complaints that can be resolved with FaceTite include sagging jowls, mild submental fullness, drooping brow line, lax neck and jawline.

FaceTite is one of the safest and most advanced skin contouring protocols available today. Because it is not a surgical procedure, a number of potential complications are avoided. At the same time, the strategic use of radiofrequency supports optimal patient outcomes.

Quick Facts

Instant Lift

The FaceTite procedure can tighten the skin as much as 40% instantly. The skin will look and feel better immediately and though the results are instant there will be some swelling for approximately seven days afterwards. Over a period of three to six weeks as new collagen is formed there will be a continuous improvement.

Minimally Invasive

The FaceTite hand-piece is designed to be minimally invasive creating skin tightening with virtually no scarring and no stitches required, this makes the recovery process even quicker.

One Treatment

Normally one treatment is enough though this would depend upon the skin laxity and your desired results.
