A facelift has a lot of benefits, but is an extensive surgery and requires a long recovery. For this reason, many people start looking for alternatives. Technology is now evolving to allow for true, surgical results from a minimally invasive procedure. FaceTite™ is an effective facelift alternative that drastically accelerates recovery while producing similar results. RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center offers FaceTite™ and other facial surgery procedures to women and men living in Mission, Tx, McAllen, Edinburg, Pharr, Harlingen, Brownsville, the Rio Grande Valley, or anywhere else in South Texas.
FaceTite™ is a minimally invasive contouring procedure for the face and other small areas of the body. This treatment enables patients to achieve results comparable to a facelift without the extensive surgery and downtime that is traditionally involved.
This is made possible with the unique RFAL (radio-frequency assisted lipolysis) technology, which gently heats the skin from underneath while simultaneously treating the skin’s surface for enhanced tightening. With FaceTite™, patients can eliminate loose, sagging skin for beautiful, scar-free results. This treatment can be most effective for the neck, jawline, jowls, and lower face.
How Is A FaceTite™ Treatment Performed?
FaceTite™ is one of the safest and most advanced cosmetic treatments. It takes an hour or less to complete and is usually performed under sedation or anesthesia.
Treatment is done with the FaceTite™ handpiece. This equipment consists of a tiny cannula and a gentle heating component. The cannula is inserted under the skin via a tiny incision hidden in the desired areas. Then, it begins to heat the skin using bi-polar radio-frequency energy.
Today, this process is combined with gentle dermal heating from the surface, also powered by radio-frequency heating. This tightens the skin from the inside and out, producing dramatic rejuvenation results.
What Results Can I Expect From FaceTite™?
Results from FaceTite™ are visible immediately after treatment. It takes roughly 6-8 weeks for the results to be most noticeable, as that’s when collagen will increase in the body.
Patients will experience some swelling and some soreness immediately after the treatment, but these are just short-term effects and will fade within a few days. Although the results of this one-time treatment are permanent, we can’t stop the march of time and progressive aging. Fortunately, there is no scarring or long-term side effects from FaceTite™.
What Is Recovery Like Following FaceTite™?
The use of FaceTite™ provides powerful and life-changing relief from years of self-imposed stress. It avoids the need for invasive procedures that would otherwise require downtime from work, school, or other responsibilities.
After a visit, patients often resume work and light activities within a few days and are able to resume their normal activities around the same time.
Dr. Rodriguez will explain what you can expect to happen during recovery and provide specific instructions after your consultations.
