How Soon After FaceTite™ Can I Wear Makeup?

By: Dr. Nana Mizuguchi


Your face is a critical part of how you look and feel. It’s the first thing you see in the mirror and the first way to make a great impression on others. Unfortunately, loose skin is inevitable due to the natural aging processes. If you want to tighten up your facial skin for a more youthful and confidence-boosting appearance, you don’t need to undergo surgery. Instead, FaceTite in Louisville, KY can provide you with the look you want – no invasive plastic surgery involved.

If you’re considering this innovative procedure, At Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery, dual board-certified aesthetic and plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi helps tighten facial skin without the lengthy recovery of surgery. But you might be wondering – how soon after FaceTite can I return to normal activities, such as wearing makeup? Read about the basics of FaceTite and what you can expect after your procedure.

What is FaceTite?

Nobody wants loose skin on their face, but plastic surgery is often a risk that many don’t want to take to achieve their ideal appearance. Enter FaceTite – a nonsurgical procedure done in Louisville, KY that tightens your skin for a more youthful look.

During a FaceTite procedure at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery, Dr. Mizuguchi uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RAFL) to target the underlying skin on your face by heating and dislodging cells. This melts away fat, causes your skin to produce collagen quickly, and tightens loose facial skin.

After FaceTite, you can expect fewer wrinkles and creases, reduced sagging skin, and firmer, tighter facial skin overall.

What is recovery like after FaceTite?

FaceTite is unlike other cosmetic procedures because it offers very little downtime after the procedure. After your procedure in Louisville, KY, you can return to the comfort of your home to rest for the remaining part of the day. You’ll be given a compression garment to help with swelling and skin retraction.

That first day, you should avoid putting products on your face, like harsh products and makeup.

After your FaceTite procedure, you can return to your regular routine the next day. This means you can begin wearing makeup or tinted moisturizer 24 hours after your treatment. However, you should avoid harsh chemicals until your skin has healed. Also, be sure to avoid strenuous exercise for about 1 – 2 weeks after your FaceTite procedure.

You can expect redness and swelling to subside within the first three days. While you might notice results right after your treatment, more gradual improvements to your facial skin will appear in the 3 – 8 weeks after your treatment.

How can I prolong my FaceTite results?

Once you have your new-and-improved facial appearance, there are ways to ensure you keep the results for as long as possible, including:

  • Avoid excess sun exposure – and wear high-SPF sunscreen and a hat if you do go outdoors

  • Hold off on excess sweating and strenuous exercise right after treatment

  • Keep your skin clean using a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water (and no exfoliating products right after the procedure)

  • Do not smoke, which can cause wrinkles in your skin

In addition, you can talk to our team in Louisville, KY about custom treatments to help extend your results and keep your skin looking refreshed and youthful.
