FaceTite is a state-of-the-art procedure that provides quicker and dramatic results without the cost or recovery time of a traditional surgical facelift.  Although a traditional surgical facelift will always be the ‘gold standard’ in terms of amount of lift and longevity of results, we consistently achieve from one-third to one-half of a facelift result using FaceTite or Renuvion with or without several additive technologies. FaceTite is an ideal solution for women and men who see drooping skin and soft tissues, jowls or loss of definition of the jawline and neck. This minimally invasive procedure is performed with local anesthesia or IV sedation and can include liposuction of jowls and neck as well as resurfacing with laser or microneedling (see JBSMD Lyft and Fill procedure).  A delicate wand is inserted under the skin to deliver controlled, very precise heat with radiofrequency energy to dissolve fat and tighten the skin at the same time. The procedure typically takes less than an hour.

FaceTite Provides Dramatic Improvement to Skin Laxity And Fat Removal

FaceTite is one of the most advanced new treatments to sculpt the face and neck without surgery. Radiofrequency energy is precisely delivered under the skin to gently and safely heat fat and skin without damaging surrounding tissue. Fat is melted and skin is tightened, giving you a younger-looking profile.

Results can be seen immediately, with the most noticeable results after 6-12 weeks as new collagen is formed and you gain a more chiseled appearance. There are typically 3-7 days of swelling after the procedure.

There are many patient benefits:

  • Minimally invasive, in-office procedure
  • Fat removal
  • Skin and soft tissue tightening up to 40%
  • Minimal pain, bruising and swelling
  • No general anesthesia
  • Enhanced aesthetic results

Frequently Asked Questions

FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia or light sedation. Patients can go home and resume regular activities shortly after the procedure. A compression neck garment is required for best results if liposuction of the jowls and neck is used for additional contouring.

Typical areas to be treated by FaceTite are the lower face, jowls and neck.

Results are seen immediately, with best results noticeable after 6-12 weeks. To hasten these results as well as to add another level of overall skin tightening, we frequently recommend post-operative Exilis of the neck be performed in the 3rd or 4th post-operative weeks.

By avoiding an excisional facelift procedure, patients are scar-free and benefit from reduced post-procedural swelling, discomfort and recovery. This is a less traumatic process with a natural looking result at a fraction of the cost of a surgical facelift. Dr. Samuels and her staff will discuss your expectations for a less-invasive facial rejuvenation procedure so you can decide which option is best for you.

FaceTite is ideal for men and women with excess skin from age, genetics and sun damage or those who look older than they feel. It’s perfect for patients who want to look younger, but do not want or are not candidates for facelift surgery. Patients should be in good general health and refrain from smoking. FaceTite works best on patients with moderate facial fat.
