What is FaceTite?
In simple terms, FaceTite is a procedure that offers an alternative to a traditional facelift. It is a scarless, bladeless procedure. FaceTite relies on the latest in radiofrequency technology to decrease fat and improve skin laxity in the face and neck.
FaceTite can also be used to decrease skin laxity in other areas including the jowls, cheeks, brow area, nasolabial folds, forehead and jawline areas giving patients a younger, more rejuvenated look without an invasive procedure like a traditional facelift.
How is the FaceTite Procedure Preformed?
FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure that delivers results without forcing patients to go under the knife. At Southeastern Dermatology, it is performed in the office without general anesthesia and no knives or scalpels are used. The patient remains comfortable during the procedure thanks to a local anesthetic. After the patient is numb, Dr. Doppelt uses the FaceTite hand-held cannula applicator to transfer radiofrequency directly into the fat with an internal electrode. The RF energy then travels up through the tissues to the external electrode on the skin surface. The system monitors both the internal and external temperatures in real time which ensures adequate heating of the fat and skin while automatically shutting off before unsafe temperatures are reached. Microcannulas are then used to remove the melted fat and oil. The procedure is quick, usually lasting no more than 60 minutes. Depending on the treated areas, most patients can resume normal activities in 2 to 3 days.

How Quickly Will I See Results?
A single treatment of FaceTite per area is usually all that is needed. Patients will almost immediately see the results of the removed fat. Skin contraction is often noticeable after 6 weeks but continues to improve up to one year after treatment.
How Long Does FaceTite Last?
Most patients see the results of their procedure last approximately 5 years. You can prolong the results of the procedure through lifestyle choices, like always remembering sunscreen and following an anti-aging skin regimen.
Is FaceTite Safe?
FaceTite is a technologically advanced procedure. It is among the safest rejuvenating procedures available to patients today. FaceTite is equipped with advanced temperature sensing technology to prevent damage to the skin and dermis. Additionally, unlike traditional facelift surgery, this revolutionary procedure doesn’t require patients to undergo the risk of general anesthesia.
How Much Does FaceTite Cost?
There is no one-size-fits-all price for FaceTite. The price of the procedure will depend on many factors. These factors might include the cause and severity of the loose skin. The number of areas being treated can also influence cost.
However, it is important to know that a treatment is more budget-friendly than a traditional facelift. FaceTite might be nearly half the cost of a traditional facelift procedure.
What is the Recovery Time?
Because it is minimally invasive, the recovery time is also minimal. Patients might feel sore or tender for up to 5 to 7 days after the procedure, but they are often able to resume daily activities within a few days of the treatment.
Is It Worth It?
In a word, yes, it is worth it. FaceTite’s patients have overwhelmingly positive things to say about the procedure. It is quick, effective and provides long lasting results.
Only one treatment is needed to see significant results in skin laxity and tightness and can take 5-7 years off the appearance in just 40 minutes.
