Sagging facial skin making you feel self-conscious about your appearance? You’re not alone. Many women experience sagging and drooping facial skin as they age because of loss of collagen and facial fat. Other women experience sagging facial skin because of genetics, prolonged exposure to the sun, smoking and even weight loss. While sagging facial skin may seem inevitable, you don’t have to live with it. You can fight back with FaceTite from Dr. Christy Walker, a triple-board-certified cosmetic surgeon and gynecologist practicing in Plano, Texas.
What Is FaceTite?
FaceTite is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive skin-tightening procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to give patients the same results as a face-lift procedure without stitches, scarring and the risks and downtime of surgery.
How Does FaceTite Work?
FaceTite delivers these powerful results by treating the skin from the inside. During the FaceTite procedure, Dr. Walker inserts a tiny probe in a discreet area of facial skin. The probe transmits radiofrequency energy to the tissues below the skin. This energy heats up the subcutaneous tissue and causes the body to produce more collagen, which tightens the skin and improves skin quality.
There are no incisions with the procedure and no scarring.
How Long Does the FaceTite Procedure Take?
The FaceTite procedure takes less than one hour, and patients report seeing results instantly. Results continue to improve over the next six to 12 months as new collagen is produced.
Where Areas of the Face Can FaceTite Treat?
FaceTite is beneficial for all areas of the face, including the:
- Neck and jowls
- Naso-labials (area near the nose and mouth)
- Brow, forehead and around the eyes
Is FaceTite Safe?
Yes. FaceTite is one of the safest facial-rejuvenating and skin-rejuvenating procedures available. The same radiofrequency energy used during the FaceTite procedure is used during Thermage, another popular skin-tightening treatment, as well as Legend skin-tightening procedures and MRS. Using radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin means reduced risk of infection and scarring associated with the face-lift procedure.
How Long Is the Recovery from FaceTite?
FaceTite does not cause damage to tissues at the cellular level, which means a significant reduction in healing time. There is some swelling and tenderness associated with the procedure, but this typically resolves within a week. Most patients return to their normal routines just a few days after their treatment.
