If you are of a certain age, you may be looking in the mirror wondering if there is anything you can do to defy gravity. Whether you would like to return to that strong jawline of days past or a bit of contouring in your cheekbones, and especially if you are not quite ready for invasive surgical procedures, then FaceTite is a gravity-defying treatment you may wish to explore.
FaceTite Can Help With:
- Signs of aging and loss of youthful appearance
- Excess fatty deposits in the lower jaw and neckline
- Early stages of sagging or loose skin
- Stimulating collagen production resulting in improved tone and texture
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is a minimally-invasive alternative to a surgical facelift and a contouring solution for the face and neck areas. Utilizing radio frequency technology, this treatment helps to improve your facial appearance, minimizing any signs of aging and revitalizing a youthful look. Overall, a non-surgical facelift treatment addresses skin laxity in the face/neck area, tightens loose skin, and reduces stubborn fat, while providing optimal, natural-looking results.
FaceTite is the next best thing to a traditional facelift without the large scars and extended downtime. This procedure is done in the office by our board-certified plastic surgeon and can be performed on jowls, neck, nasolabial folds, cheeks, and jaw line.
What are FaceTite benefits?
A FaceTite non-surgical treatment has great benefits such as:
- Minimal invasiveness and scarring
- Performed under local anesthesia
- Less bruising than surgical option
- Reduced swelling & pain
- Optimal skin tightening results
- Delivering surgical results without scars.
Should I Get FaceTite or a Facelift?
There is certainly no denying there are certain benefits of a facelift. However, this treatment may be a more appropriate option for patients with less severe signs of facial aging, as well as those men and women who wish to avoid the cost, incisions, anesthesia, and recovery time associated with a traditional facelift surgery.

Does FaceTite Require Downtime?
As a minimally invasive treatment, FaceTite does not require general anesthesia or a lengthy recovery period. Patients are generally able to resume regular activities within 48 hours, returning to work in 3 – 5 days.
How Fast can Results be Seen?
Results can be seen immediately, however a patient should expect some minor swelling which will subside at about 6 weeks after the procedure. The skin continues to tighten after that over the next 12 months.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Candidates for the FaceTite procedure are those who experience common signs of aging like deep facial wrinkles, folds, facial sagging, jowls, and excess fat and loose skin on the neck and under the chin. Those who are looking for significant improvement without undergoing a complete surgical procedure can benefit from FaceTite. Patients can look years younger after the procedure and experience less post-procedure swelling, scarring, and other side effects.
How is FaceTite Performed?
Because it is nonsurgical, FaceTite can be performed in a Skin MD practice with the use of local anesthesia. The procedure itself is considered minimally invasive and involves inserting a cannula just beneath the skin’s surface. Through this thin tool, the FaceTite system emits precise heat energy to heat and dislodge fat cells while stimulating the body’s natural production of new, healthy collagen fibers for firmer skin.
How Much Downtime?
Patients are generally able to resume regular activities within 48 hours, returning to work in 3 – 5 days.
What Areas can Be Treated?
This treatment can be done on jowls, neck, nasolabial folds, cheeks, and jawline.
How many FaceTite Treatments Will I Need?
While many men and women are satisfied with their new firm and healthy skin after a single session, other patients may need a series of FaceTite treatments to achieve their desired outcome. On average, 1 – 3 FaceTite treatments are recommended. During your consultation for FaceTite, your Skin MD provider will carefully assess your skin, discuss your specific concerns, and suggest a treatment plan that will best meet your needs.
