Is FaceTite® a Suitable Anti-Aging Treatment?
FaceTite is a popular anti-aging treatment that uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RAFL) to tighten wrinkled skin and reduce fat pockets. But is FaceTite a suitable procedure for everyone? And what are the risks and benefits of skin tightening at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery?
In this blog post, dual board-certified aesthetic and plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi takes a closer look at FaceTite and how we can help you appear years younger without plastic surgery. Learn more about our advanced treatments by calling for a skin rejuvenation consultation in Louisville, KY.
What does FaceTite accomplish?
Natural aging causes problems like wrinkles, visible lines, small fat pockets, and loose skin on the neck, jowls, and chin. FaceTite is a nonsurgical procedure that uses radiofrequency technology to carefully heat the underlying tissues. This causes the skin to produce more collagen and tighten up. At the same time, the heat breaks down unwanted fat cells to be metabolized by the body. Patients achieve a smoother and firmer look overall.
Well-known benefits of FaceTite include:
Little downtime involved
Noninvasive (no needles or incisions)
No general anesthesia required
Who is a candidate for FaceTite treatment?
FaceTite is suited for people who want to refresh their appearance without investing time or resources into cosmetic surgery. While facelifts may be a good anti-aging option for some patients in Louisville, KY, others are not candidates because of their anatomy or health.
With FaceTite skin rejuvenation, you can treat all kinds of concerns related to aging without long recovery times or visible scars. Instead, patients enjoy natural skin tightening results without anyone knowing they had work done.
What happens during a FaceTite consultation?
Dr. Mizuguchi begins each FaceTite consultation by learning more about you and your anti-aging concerns. Whether you have loose skin, wrinkles, or small amounts of excess fat in certain areas, we can determine if you are eligible for FaceTite. Please inform our team if you have any allergies or if you take medications that make your skin sensitive. Our goal is to make sure treatment and recovery are as safe as possible.
Is FaceTite safe?
Absolutely! FaceTite is known to be much safer than cosmetic injections or facelift surgery. Some patients may experience side effects, like mild swelling and redness, but this is a normal and expected part of recovery. Our clinic can provide tips for soothing these symptoms and reducing discomfort. We are proud to offer the safest and most effective anti-aging solutions on the market.
When will I see FaceTite results?
FaceTite patients should return to regular activities by the next day, but it's important to follow our recovery guidelines for best results. For example, use sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Try to avoid strenuous exercises for about 1 – 2 weeks. While it is possible to see some immediate outcomes after skin tightening, it does take time for collagen production to take effect. Long-lasting results happen after about 3 – 8 weeks.
