HOW DOES FACETITE WORK?
FaceTite is a minimally-invasive contouring solution for the face and small areas of the body. This is a safe, effective and exciting treatment that offers patients significant aesthetic changes. FaceTite is powered by RFAL technology three-dimensional remodeling of the tissue. It is the next best thing to a facelift. Built-in safeguards, including real time measurements of skin and fat temperature, impedance monitoring, power cut-off and audible feedback, help ensure patient safety.

Frequently Asked Questions about Face Tite
As we age, it’s common for patients to search for ways to turn back the hands of time. Thanks to modern technology there is an abundance of safe and effective options to improve your outer appearance and restore the youthful contours of the face.
Often patients are looking for treatments to lift, sculpt or tighten the face. Out of the many treatments available, surgical procedures have long had a reputation of fantastic long term results but also require a significant amount of downtime for healing and recovery.
FaceTite is an innovative and minimally invasive contouring solution for the face. FaceTite provides a safe and effective treatment that offers patients significant aesthetic changes. FaceTite can be a long term solution for sagging skin, and loose skin on areas of the face such as nose to mouth lines and a double chin.
FaceTite is powered by RFAL technology which offers 3-dimensional remodeling of tissue. It has built-in safeguards, such as real-time measurements of skin and fat temperatures, impedance monitoring, a power cut-off, and audible feedback to ensure maximum patient safety.
More and more patients are looking to FaceTite as an alternative to a traditional facelift. This is because downtime with this treatment is minimal and you can return to your daily activities within a few days (as opposed to the several weeks with a facelift). FaceTite is the ideal solution for patients who want to correct or improve the contours of their face but are averse to major surgery, or are just beginning to feel they would benefit from a lift.
FaceTite uses radiofrequency (RF) technology which is conducted through a specially designed tool called a cannula which is inserted into the area to be treated. This tool is extremely small close to the size of a needle and unlike what is used for traditional liposuction.
While the cannula removes unwanted fat and fluid from the treatment area, the overlying RF is used on the same area outside the skin and is used to heat the underlying layers of skin which helps to create a tightening effect on the dermal fibers and increases collagen production for improved skin quality.
The RF technology can also heat the cannula to a safe temperature to help to coagulate blood vessels and liquefy fat for easy removal. This also helps to tremendously cut down on patient discomfort, swelling, and recovery time.
FaceTite is a straightforward procedure. It can be conducted under a local anesthetic so there is no need for an overnight hospital stay. (Unlike a traditional facelift.) You should not feel any discomfort during your treatment, and the staff at Buckhead Plastic Surgery will make every effort to make sure you are as comfortable as possible at all times.
A facelift is an invasive surgery and requires lengthy recovery time. After a facelift, there is also a scar. (Although Dr. Larsen is extremely talented in minimizing the visibility of scars) FaceTite is a surgical alternative and is designed to be scar-free. FaceTite foregos the need for a lengthy recovery time.
With FaceTite, the cannula that is used to remove fatty tissue is small, close to the size of a needle. Instead of an incision made with a scalpel-like in a traditional facelift, small needle punctures are hidden well within the folds of the skin.
After the healing process patients will have no visible scarring. Of course, proper care of the treatment areas is important during the healing process. For instance, patients will need to keep the incisions clean and dry for several days following treatment to ensure optimal healing.
FaceTite is most commonly used to treat stubborn fat and sagging skin on the face. Common treatment areas include a double chin, loose jawline, deep wrinkles, loose skin or folds.
The best candidates for FaceTite are patients with age-related changes on the face or neck that they would like to improve (such as sagging loose skin). They are active, healthy and in good overall health. They are non-smokers and have a realistic understanding of optimal results and recovery.
Over the upcoming weeks and months, you will notice changes in the firmness and shape of your face and neck. Your skin will continue to improve progressively due to collagen production and cellular regeneration. Maximum tightening can take up to 6 months, but you will begin to enjoy your results around the three month mark.
FaceTite patients typically see results such as improvements in the texture of their skin, immediately after treatment. Patients will also notice an immediate slimming effect where fat was removed.
All cosmetic treatments have the possibility of side effects. With FaceTite the side effects are mild and rare. It is normal for patients to experience soreness or tenderness in the treatment areas, which will subside within a few days to weeks.
In most cases, patients can return home immediately after the procedure and resume their normal activities within 2 days of treatment. Some doctors will recommend wearing a facial compression garment to assist with the healing process and to ensure optimal results.
The cost of FaceTite will vary depending on several factors, such as the number of areas you’d like to be treated. Starting cost for FaceTite begins at $4,800.
