Part of the body's natural aging process is the slowing of collagen and elastin production in the skin. This leads to more visible lines, creases, and wrinkles, as well as loose skin on the neck, jowls, and chin. To combat these signs of aging, Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery offers FaceTite. This innovative nonsurgical procedure, recommended by Dr. Nana Mizuguchi, uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RAFL) to heat up and dislodge cells, which causes the skin to tighten and encourages the faster production of collagen. It's possible to enjoy a tighter, more youthful facial appearance and fewer wrinkles without the lengthy recovery period of an invasive facelift. We encourage you to schedule a consultation at our Louisville, KY practice to learn more about FaceTite and its benefits.

"I just had my surgery and it was the best experience ever. Dr Mizuguchi and his staff are very attentive and make you feel comfortable. I would not go to anyone else. (Believe me when I say I would not go to anyone because it took me 6 years in looking for a doctor that I felt comfortable with. I even had consultations in Miami and Dominican Republic.)"- A.Y. / Facebook / Jun 07, 2019
"I saw Dr. Mizaguchi for lip fillers several times. He is absolutely amazing. My results were always beautiful and consistent. Never did I leave disappointed. I moved out of state last year. I could not find a surgeon that could deliver such great results like Dr. Mizaguchi. I just traveled over 600 miles to have him do my fillers again. Once again, turned out amazing!"- M. / Google / May 24, 2019
"Excellent surgeon. Top notch staff. I have had several procedures by other surgeons and now realize the difference between a good surgeon and an artist. Dr. Mizuguchi is definitely and artist! Worth every penny."- S.C. / Google / May 24, 2019
FaceTite is generally utilized to treat smaller, more delicate areas, such as the lines that form around the mouth and under the eyes as well as the loose skin on the chin and neck area. You are a good candidate for this procedure if you're experiencing classic signs of aging and want an increase in collagen production for tighter skin. In order to receive this treatment, you should not be pregnant or have had cosmetic injections performed within the last 6 – 8 months. A consultation with Dr. Mizuguchi will better help you learn whether or not you are a candidate for this procedure.
What to Expect
FaceTite uses a minimally invasive technique that involves inserting a very small cannula under your skin after local anesthesia is applied. Once the cannula is placed, the temperature can be monitored and controlled via internal and external thermometers to make sure the heat remains at a comfortable level. The radiofrequency energy the FaceTite device emits will be effective in attacking fat cells, and will also cause the skin to contract, stimulating an increase in collagen production. Sessions typically last around 45 minutes per treated area.
After a FaceTite procedure, you will be allowed to return home to rest for the remaining part of the day wearing a compression garment. You should be able to return to your regular routine by the next day. It may take around three days for any redness or swelling to subside. Strenuous activities and exercises should still be avoided for about 1 – 2 weeks following the procedure. You may be able to see some visible results right after your FaceTite treatment. However, as the procedure involves stimulating the collagen process, you will see more gradual improvements for around 3 – 8 weeks afterward. Your results should be long-lasting if you maintain a healthy, stable weight.
