FaceTite explained

FaceTite uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to improve skin laxity in the face and neck. It targets the underlying tissue and stimulates new collagen and elastin production. FaceTite is considered much safer than traditional surgery and does not require much downtime at all. When you meet with Dr. Mizuguchi, we can let you know what to expect in terms of FaceTite results. FaceTite is an option for men and women who want to achieve the following:

  • Firm and tighten facial skin

  • Decrease wrinkles and creases

  • Reduce sagging skin

How FaceTite is performed

FaceTite begins with a form of anesthetic to numb the treatment areas. We then place a small cannula just beneath the skin using minimally invasive incisions. The probe emits radiofrequency energy, which melts away unwanted fat and contracts loose skin on the face. Afterward, a knowledgeable member of our team will give you detailed instructions for taking care of your skin at home.

How to prolong your FaceTite results

Patients should follow these general guidelines for extending their FaceTite results for as long as possible in Louisville, KY:

  1. Avoid excess sun exposure: UV rays damage the skin and accelerate aging. When outdoors, use a high-SPF sunscreen and wear a hat to shield your face and neck.

  2. Hold off on strenuous activities: do not go to the gym immediately after treatment. This is because exercising too much causing increased circulation in the face, leading to swelling and other painful side effects.

  3. Avoid excess sweating: strenuous exercise also causes sweating, which could worsen side effects and alter your FaceTite results.

  4. Keep your skin clean: wash your face daily with lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser. Do not scrub your skin or use exfoliating products immediately after your procedure.

  5. Avoid smoking: smoking and tobacco use are not only unhealthy for your body long-term but cause deep wrinkles and creases in your skin.

  6. Avoid wrinkling your forehead: excessive expressions and dynamic facial movements like frowning can create or even deepen facial wrinkles.

  7. Choose an experienced professional: Even though FaceTite is nonsurgical, patients can still have complications from treatment. This is why it is so important to pick a clinic with trusted experts.
