Over the years, we have seen dramatic, innovative changes in facial rejuvenation procedures and techniques. Because of this, there has been a rise in the number of people seeking facial rejuvenation through less invasive methods. Most facial rejuvenation procedures in the past were done with peels, fillers, and face lifts. Currently, we have many cutting-edge techniques that have essentially surpassed the results produced by these procedures.
Additionally, we have experienced an increase in patients desiring more natural looking results. Often, these people want a softer, more natural look than those produced by procedures such as surgical facelifts.
Previously, sagging jowls and cheeks were not treatable with less invasive treatments such as dermal fillers—the excess skin was not reduced. These issues had to be addressed through a face lift where the skin is lifted and cut away. FaceTite is a newer procedure that can actually provide the results of lifting those sagging areas, without invasive surgery.
FaceTite Therapy Alternative
FaceTite procedure entails the application of radiofrequency energy and gentle liposuction to firm, tighten, and lift the treatment area. During the FaceTite procedure, the area is anesthetized using a local anesthetic. A tiny cannula or needle is then inserted right under the skin, which then heats the area. This heating will cause the skin to immediately contract and tighten. This heating will also increase collagen production, which, over the following few weeks, cause even more skin tightening.
After the skin has been tightened, excess fat deposits will be removed using a very gentle liposuction process. This accumulated fat removal will add to the overall improved look, especially under the jowls and neck area.
Additionally, this removed fat can be used as part of a fat transfer process to add volume to the cheek area if desired. Also, resurfacing techniques such as Fractora can be performed to give an even more stunning rejuvenated result.
