Experiencing Classic Signs of Aging? Consider FaceTite

By: Dr. Nana Mizuguchi


As you age, your collagen and elastin production slows down in the skin, leading to creases, wrinkles, lines, and loose skin on the chin, jowls, and neck. To combat aging, Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery offers FaceTite™, a nonsurgical procedure that helps jump-start collagen production. Dr. Nana Mizuguchi, a dual board-certified aesthetic and plastic surgeon, uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RAFL) to heat up and dislodge these cells, causing the skin to tighten. It is possible to achieve a more youthful face with fewer wrinkles without the long recovery time of a facelift. Schedule a consultation at our Louisville, KY office, to learn how to achieve facial rejuvenation.

What is FaceTite?

FaceTite is a nonsurgical skin tightening procedure offered at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery. It uses targeted radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin from the dermis layer. Local anesthesia is used to numb the treatment area, so you will feel nothing as Dr. Mizuguchi passes the small handheld applicator across your skin. There are no incisions, just tiny pin-pricks that heal in a few days. The entire treatment time usually lasts less than 40 minutes. Our patients in Louisville, KY quickly see tighter skin. As new collagen is formed, more improvements will appear for up to eight weeks after treatment.

FaceTite can be used on many parts of the body, including:

  • Cheeks

  • Eyes

  • Forehead

  • Mouth

  • Brow

  • Jawline

  • Jowls

  • Neck

During a consultation, Dr. Mizuguchi can evaluate your skin and make professional recommendations for where it will benefit you most.

Who is the ideal candidate for FaceTite?

FaceTite is best for smaller areas, such as lines around the mouth or under the skin. You are a good candidate if you’re experiencing aging signs and want to increase your collagen production. It is not recommended for those who are pregnant or who have had cosmetic injections within the last eight months.

What happens during a FaceTite session?

During FaceTite treatment at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery, the treatment area is numbed with local anesthesia. A small cannula is placed under your skin. Once in place, the temperature is continually monitored with internal and external thermometers to ensure that the heat is at a comfortable level. The radiofrequency energy that the applicator emits attacks fat cells and causes the skin to contract, leading to increased collagen production.

After treatment, you will go home wearing a compression garment. It will take about three days for any redness or swelling to go away. Avoid exercise or strenuous activity for a few weeks after your procedure. Your results should be long-lasting as long as you maintain a healthy weight.

Is FaceTite safe?

It is considered one of the industry’s safest ways to achieve facial rejuvenation. Patients in Louisville, KY avoid possible complications of more invasive plastic surgery procedures, such as a facelift. The same type of radiofrequency technology used in an MRI is used during this treatment. No cell damage is caused to the tissues being treated.
