Firm, Youthful Contours Without Surgery
FaceTite is a relatively new innovation in the ongoing war against aging. As we age, the facial skin begins to reveal the effects of a hectic lifestyle, sun exposure, and environmental stresses.
Unfortunately, this frequently leads to your facial skin losing its natural resilience and capacity to repair. This means wrinkles will stay, and fat deposits will continue to sag, making you appear older. However, a Houston FaceTite treatment is a minimally invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency to reverse this damage. This method sometimes referred to as "radiofrequency-assisted liposuction" (RFAL), targets facial creases and folds, especially on the bottom half of the face. By reducing extra fat and tightening the skin—remarkable improvements are possible.
Refine Facial Features
FaceTite is intended to restore facial features in the lower part of the face. This encompasses the cheekbones, chin, and jawline and can also involve the neck. With FaceTite Houston patients can ease the following concerns:
Aesthetic Specialists of Houston will discuss your problem areas during your consultation to determine if FaceTite is the correct answer for you. Together, we will create a treatment plan tailored to your needs and lifestyle.
Considering Non-surgical Rejuvenation
FaceTite is a newer therapy offered at Aesthetic Specialists of Houston that is considered safe and effective.
Despite being less invasive, this procedure has some potential consequences. If you have any serious illnesses, such as diabetes, heart disease, or are pregnant, let your doctor know. Additionally, several drugs and supplements can obstruct blood flow, increasing your risk of bleeding. Before undergoing FaceTite Houston candidates should be at or near their target weight. Having realistic expectations about the procedure and your outcome is vital.
One Hour to a More Sculpted Appearance
The FaceTite technique usually takes about an hour to complete. We can either use oral medications or Pronox to relax you during the local anesthesia. If you choose oral medications, you should have a friend or family member present to take you home after the treatment. After cleaning your skin, your provider will apply a local anesthetic to the affected areas. Next, they will make a tiny incision under the chin and behind each earlobe after it has taken effect. The FaceTite handpiece transmits RF radiation into the skin and fat tissue in the subcutaneous space between the skin and underlying muscle. This increases collagen formation and tightens the fibrous bands between the skin and muscle, while also liquifying fat cells in your skin.
Finally, liposuction is generally performed under the chin as part of the procedure to extract the treated fat. Once complete, the compression bandages are placed.
After Your Treatment
Your provider will provide full recovery instructions, including how to apply compression bandages and care for the incision sites and the surrounding healing skin. Recovery can take up to 48 hours, and most patients choose to resume work and routine activities within two days. However, if you tend to swell, this can be up to 5 days. Swelling, bruising, and slight pain are expected around the incision sites. This is usually minor and treatable with cold compresses and over-the-counter medicines.
Look Younger, Longer
Within the first week, the swelling from the procedure should have subsided. After a month, you should start to see a difference and fresh collagen and elastin synthesis should be in full force. Collagen stimulation can take up to 3 to 6 months and the final result can take a year. The outcomes will vary depending on your skin's specific makeup, but your FaceTite results are expected to last for several years. Taking care of your skin and living a healthy lifestyle will significantly impact your overall outcome.

FaceTite is a non-surgical procedure for facial rejuvenation that is an alternative to surgical facelifts. A facelift is typically an extensive procedure involving many lengthy incisions.
