Many people experience signs of aging over time, especially loose skin or loss of elasticity and firmness. For these issues, many people choose a facelift to tighten and firm that loose skin. But what about those people not quite ready for a facelift? FaceTite provides great results for people with mild to moderate skin laxity and looseness.

What is FaceTite?

FaceTite uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to remodel skin, fat, and tissue by stimulating the production of collagen, a protein that helps give skin its structure and support. It also triggers tightening and firming of the subdermal tissue under the skin, lifting and tightening the area. Unlike surface treatments that only reach a few millimeters into the skin, FaceTite uses a tiny probe that directs the energy into the deeper levels of the sub-dermis where the real change happens. 

How Does FaceTite Work?

During a FaceTite procedure, your provider will inject numbing to the area and then make very small incisions, so small that they usually require no stitches! The probe or cannula, placed under the skin through these incisions, delivers RF energy into the deeper layers of the skin and dermal tissue. 

 

This energy triggers a remodeling process that stimulates the area to produce new, healthy collagen and also signals the existing skin structure to tighten. This tightening firms and lifts the upper layers of skin, smoothing out lines and wrinkles and enhancing the contours of the face. 

How Long Does FaceTite Last?

If you are a good candidate and take good care of your skin, including daily sunscreen and other skincare, you can expect results to last 1-5 years. Activities like excess sun exposure or smoking can reduce the lifespan of your procedure. 

Am I A Good Candidate for FaceTite?

If you have mild to moderate laxity or looseness of your facial skin, FaceTite may work for you. If you have very deep lines and wrinkles or severe sagging of the skin, you may be a better candidate for a facelift. A consultation with the professionals at Levy Dermatology can help you decide. Some people do not feel ready for the amount of recovery time a facelift requires, as well as the greater expense. 

What Results Will I See?

You may notice some skin contraction after treatment, but you will not see significant results for six months after the procedure while your body remodels its collagen structure. You will see ongoing improvement for 6 months to 1 year following treatment, with skin becoming firmer and more lifted, a decrease in lines and wrinkles, and improvements in skin texture and facial structure.
