How Long Can I Expect my FaceTite Results to Last?
Your face is one of the first things people notice about you – and you notice about yourself. It can have a significant impact on how you feel, including your confidence and self-esteem. As you get older, the skin on your face, neck, jowls, and chin will change. While these changes are inevitable, you don’t have to live with them. At Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery in Louisville, KY, dual board-certified aesthetic and plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi helps patients achieve tighter and younger-looking facial skin using a nonsurgical approach called FaceTite. With a short recovery and long-lasting results, FaceTite can help you achieve more confidence in how you look and feel.
Why does skin change with age?
Getting older is inevitable and, unfortunately, so are its side effects. As you age, your skin starts producing less collagen and elastin – both of which help keep your face smooth and virtually wrinkle-free. As a result, common signs of aging are wrinkles, loose skin, visible lines, and creases, especially on the face, neck, and jowls.
While you can’t turn back or stop the hands of time, you can achieve more youthful skin without surgery with FaceTite at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery.
What is FaceTite?
The good news is that signs of aging can be prevented and treated. FaceTite is a nonsurgical procedure that Dr. Mizuguchi uses for patients in Louisville, KY to help them achieve tighter facial skin. It uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RAFL) to heat and dislodge skin cells. This causes your skin to naturally tighten and leads to greater production of collagen.
FaceTite is a minimally-invasive technique, which means it doesn’t involve surgery. Instead, it involves using a small cannula (or tiny tube) under your skin after local anesthetic is applied. Once this tube is placed, the radiofrequency energy from FaceTite attacks fat cells and causes your skin to contract. This leads to more collagen production and tighter skin.
During a FaceTite procedure, Dr. Mizuguchi monitors and controls the temperature using both internal and external thermometers to keep the procedure comfortable. The entire procedure takes about 45 minutes for each treated area.
How long will FaceTite results last?
After your FaceTite procedure, you’ll be able to rest in the comfort of your home while wearing a compression garment. The next day, you can return to your regular routine, though you may experience some redness and swelling for about three days. Make sure to avoid strenuous activities for 1 – 2 weeks after the procedure.
In many cases, patients are able to see visible results almost immediately after treatment. However, because FaceTite ignites a natural process to produce collagen, you will also see more improvements for the next 3 – 8 weeks. Though you will experience results with just one FaceTite treatment, you may wish to have multiple treatments to achieve your desired outcomes.
As long as you maintain a healthy, stable weight, results from FaceTite will be long-lasting. Dr. Mizuguchi can recommend a treatment plan to maintain results based on your individual situation.
