FaceTite Rejuvenation Procedures at Our Houston, TX, Clinic
Age impacts everyone’s anatomy differently, including our faces. For many people, fine lines and crow’s feet around the mouth and eyes are the first signs to appear. For others, it might be a progressive loss of volume in the cheeks or sagging skin around the neck. Surgical facelifts have long been a staple of plastic surgery to address these changes effectively, but the necessary recovery time is undesirable to some patients. Now, developments in laser technology and aesthetic procedures make it possible for Texas Center for Breast and Body plastic surgeons to deliver the same youthful results without surgery or the associated side effects and recovery time.
FaceTite as a Nonsurgical Facelift
FaceTite delivers similar results to a surgical facelift, with the added benefit of being a minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t require full sedation. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, you may only need a topical anesthetic or mild sedative. FaceTite does not require incisions, there are no scars or necessary bandaging after treatment. Think of it as an advanced facial contouring, without the need to hide behind hats and dark sunglasses for weeks after treatment.
This makes FaceTite an ideal for patients looking for a way to tighten and rejuvenate loose and sagging skin around their face and neck, but don’t want to undergo more invasive cosmetic surgery. They choose FaceTite because:
- The procedure is minimally invasive and nonsurgical, so there are no incisions, scars, or bandages
- Most patients do not require sedation or general anesthesia, and opt for a topical anesthetic as needed
- After FaceTite, you can go home the same day, with minimal recovery or disruption to your daily routine of activities.
FaceTite Procedure and Recovery Information
Rather than cutting and pulling back loose skin like a traditional facelift surgery, FaceTite uses radio frequency energy to target fat deposits and sagging skin on the face and neck—the most problematic and common effects of aging. The energy pulses stimulate your body to produce its own collagen, a natural protein that keeps connective tissue in the skin tight. As we age, we produce less collagen and start to notice sagging and loose skin as those connections weaken; however, encouraging your body to generate more collagen can roll back the effects of time and gravity.
FaceTite is an outpatient procedure done in our Houston clinic, so you return home on the same day. Expect to be somewhat tender and swollen for about a week. Rather than bandages or other post-surgical requirements, FaceTite simply suggests that you wear a compression garment for a short duration, as the skin adjusts for the best results. You can expect to see improvements soon after completing FaceTite, with progressive changes in the appearance and texture of your skin for six months to a year after treatment.
