Want to make a better first impression? Even with a healthy diet and regular exercise plan, we cannot stop normal signs of aging on the face. You may experience unwanted wrinkles and loose skin that make you appear older than you are. If you are not ready to commit to an invasive procedure, like facelift surgery, board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Erick Sanchez offers FaceTite™ treatment in Baton Rouge, LA.
So what is FaceTite, and how long does FaceTite last? This groundbreaking new technology uses radiofrequency-guided lipolysis to melt and dislodge fat cells while causing your skin to become firm. Patients of Sanchez Plastic Surgery enjoy dramatic results with minimal downtime. When you want to achieve a youthful facial appearance, contact us for a consultation. We can determine if you are a candidate for treatment.
What is FaceTite?
You may be asking yourself – exactly what is FaceTite? FaceTite uses advanced radiofrequency technology to enhance skin laxity in areas of the face and neck. It is designed to target underlying facial tissues while also stimulating collagen and elastin production. FaceTite is safer than traditional facelift surgery and only requires a few small incisions to complete. Dr. Sanchez can give you a full assessment of what to expect before and after the procedure. FaceTite is an attractive option for individuals who desire a real solution to common signs of aging, such as:
- Wrinkles and creases in the lower face
- Sagging jowls and neck skin
- Submental fullness in the chin
- Decreased collagen and elastin production
Who should get FaceTite?
Patients with loose skin on the face and neck may be ideal candidates for FaceTite treatment. Sanchez Plastic Surgery offers this procedure because it is considered one of the safest methods of facial rejuvenation. In fact, the applicator comes with built-in safeguards and thermal controls to prevent damage to the external tissues. During a meeting with Dr. Sanchez, we will perform an examination to see if you are healthy enough for FaceTite. Patients who are pregnant or who have had cosmetic injections performed in the last several months do not qualify for FaceTite at this time.
How FaceTite is performed
After reviewing your cosmetic goals with Dr. Sanchez, a member of our team will administer a local anesthetic to numb the areas and make you feel more comfortable. This therapy uses a minimally invasive process that begins by placing a tiny cannula beneath the skin. As we move the probe beneath the skin, it emits radiofrequency energy. These actions melt away a thin layer of fat and cause the skin to contract, which helps your body produce new collagen and elastin. FaceTite sessions in our Baton Rouge, LA office normally last about 45 minutes for each treatment area.
How long does FaceTite last?
So what happens during recovery, and how long does FaceTite last? Following FaceTite treatment, you can return home to relax for the remainder of the day wearing a fitted compression garment. Since there are no incisions involved, most patients experience little discomfort. You can expect some side effects, such as swelling or redness, that are temporary and should subside within a few days. The professionals at Sanchez Plastic Surgery will let you know about any precautions you need to take, such as avoiding strenuous activities and exercise while you heal.
The good news is that the tightening effect of FaceTite can be seen almost immediately after treatment. You can get the results of facelift surgery without an extended amount of downtime. Patients will continue to see improvements as new collagen and elastin are produced in the deeper layers of the skin. Maximum results should be achieved in about three months and are long-lasting, as long as you continue to take care of your skin. Although we cannot stop the natural aging process, we recommend using a high-SPF sunscreen to protect yourself from harmful ultraviolet rays.
