How Does FaceTite Work?
FaceTite is a form of RFAL, or RadioFrequency Assisted Lipolysis and utilizes the powers of Bipolar Radiofrequency (RF) technology to produce exceptional facial contouring. During this minimally-invasive procedure, a micro-cannula equipped with specialized electrodes is inserted just below the surface of the skin. Controlled thermal energy is then delivered to the subcutaneous fat layer causing fat cells to break down and liquify.
The heat from the device also causes contraction of the fibrous bands between the fat and the dermis as well as dermal collagen contraction. Your treatment is often followed by liposuction to the treated area, resulting in a sharper contour and precise tightening of the treated area. Treatments are done in-office under a local anesthetic.
Skin tightening and fat removal with FaceTite is just one of the functionalities of the Embrace RF device. Patients can expect custom treatments that are performed in a safe, uniform, and controlled manner with this advanced system. Skin tightening treatments can be done on their own or paired with other procedures for enhanced outcomes.

How Long Does A Typical Treatment Take?
Treatment times can vary significantly with FaceTite depending on your individual needs and goals. In most cases, FaceTite procedures will typically last no more than 1 hour. The procedure is very well tolerated and only requires the use of a local anesthetic.
Is There Any Downtime?
Downtime is minimal with FaceTite. You can return to many day-to-day activities in just a few days. You’ll likely feel sore and tender for the first 5-7 days of recovery. The amount of time you’ll need for recovery can vary based on the specifics of your procedure. However, FaceTite produces exceptional results with a fraction of the downtime associated with traditional facelift procedures.
What Results Can I Expect?
Skin contraction is generally most visible starting around 6 weeks. You’ll see an improvement to your jawline contour and jowl region with continued improvement over the course of 4-6 months. Most men and women can get the results they want with a single FaceTite treatment.
FaceTite is a long-lasting procedure with projected longevity of 5+ years. Maintaining a healthy skincare routine can prolong the outcome of your procedure significantly. FaceTite is safe and effective as needed.
