Eliminate Loose, Sagging Facial Skin With FaceTite in Austin

As we get older, many of us start to develop noticeable skin laxity around the face, jawline, and neck. While a facelift can be an effective option to reduce these unsightly signs of aging, it’s a very invasive procedure that isn’t necessarily right for everyone. At Austin Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, our expert plastic surgeons offer a procedure called FaceTite, which offers a less invasive method for attaining firmer, more youthful-looking facial skin.

What Is FaceTite?

FaceTite is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to tighten and contour the skin of the face and neck. This procedure is an alternative to traditional facelift surgery and can provide similar results without the need for extensive incisions or downtime.

During the FaceTite procedure, a small cannula is inserted under the skin, and an electrode is placed on the surface of the skin. The RF energy is then delivered to the treatment area, causing the skin to contract and tighten. This process also stimulates the production of collagen, which helps to improve the overall texture and tone of the skin. FaceTite is a safe and effective treatment for patients who are looking to improve the appearance of sagging skin on the face and neck. It can be used to treat a variety of concerns, including jowls, double chin, and loose skin around the eyes.

Benefits of FaceTite

FaceTite is a state-of-the-art skin tightening procedure that offers all of the following benefits:

  • Tightening and firming of the skin around the face and neck
  • Reduction of loose, sagging skin
  • Enhanced jawline definition
  • Enhanced facial contours
  • A more youthful facial appearance
  • Long-lasting, natural-looking results
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Less invasive than a facelift
  • Improved self-confidence

What to Expect During the FaceTite Procedure

Your FaceTite journey begins with a consultation with one of our expert plastic surgeons. During this appointment, you'll discuss your goals and concerns and learn more about the procedure. Your provider will examine your skin and determine if you're a good candidate for FaceTite. They will then work with you to devise a treatment plan that’s fully customized to your unique situation.

FaceTite is typically performed using local anesthesia with IV sedation. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, your surgeon will make a small incision in the targeted area of your facial skin. A special device will then be inserted under your skin, which will deliver radiofrequency energy to the tissues. This energy will cause the tissues to contract and tighten, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Finally, the FaceTite device will be removed, and your surgeon will close the incision with sutures before bandaging the area.

After the procedure, you’ll need to stick around for monitoring for an hour or two to ensure that you don’t suffer any complications. After that, you can have a friend or family member drive you home.

What Is the Recovery Like After FaceTite?

After your FaceTite procedure, you’ll experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treatment area. This is normal and can be managed with pain medication prescribed by your doctor. You may also be required to wear a compression garment for a few days to help reduce swelling.

During the first week of recovery, it’s important to avoid strenuous activities and to get plenty of rest. You should also avoid hot showers or baths, saunas, and swimming pools. Most patients can start gradually resuming their normal routine after the first week of recovery, but it’s best to avoid strenuous physical activity for at least two to three weeks.

Who Is a Good Candidate for FaceTite?

Adults looking to reduce skin laxity, wrinkles, and other signs of aging around the face and/or neck could be good candidates for FaceTite. FaceTite can be an excellent option for individuals who are experiencing loose, sagging facial skin but want to avoid a more invasive procedure like a facelift. Ideal candidates for FaceTite should also be in good physical health, have realistic expectations for the procedure, and not be currently pregnant or nursing.
