What Facial Areas Can Be Treated With FaceTite?
Growing older is not a friend to our facial skin. As we age, our bodies' production of collagen and elastin begins to decrease, resulting in more visible signs of aging skin, like fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. While no one can stop the natural aging process, a facelift can turn back the hands of time. However, are you looking for a less invasive alternative to tackle the signs of facial aging? FaceTite™ is an excellent alternative that requires minimal downtime and is offered at the cutting-edge practice of Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery in Louisville, KY.
Dual board-certified aesthetic and plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi offers this noninvasive skin tightening technique at his private practice. Dr. Mizuguchi has helped countless Louisville, KY patients look years younger with this skin rejuvenation treatment to forgo a traditional facelift procedure. Read on to learn more about FaceTite results and what areas it can target.
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is an FDA-approved treatment designed to tackle the early signs of facial aging. This nonsurgical cosmetic treatment that tightens loose skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles requires much less downtime than a traditional facelift. As individuals enter into their late 30s or early 40s, collagen production decreases, causing a loss of muscle tone and thinning skin in the face and neck area. Facial skin loses elasticity, leading to droopy skin and wrinkles. FaceTite uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RAFL) to melt fat and dislodge cells. Dr. Mizuguchi will place a small cannula beneath the skin after administering a local anesthetic. Controlled thermal energy will be delivered from the FaceTite device to attack fat cells, causing facial skin to contract and signaling the body to ramp up collagen production.
What areas are treated with FaceTite?
While it is possible to notice immediate improvements after the procedure at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery, patients will gradually notice more visible facial contouring results over the next 3 – 8 weeks. The radiofrequency energy is controlled and monitored to heat specific target areas without damaging surrounding tissue while stimulating collagen production. As a result, fat cells are reduced to create a more lifted, smoother appearance in the following areas:
- Lower jowls or jawline
- Nasolabial folds (nose to mouth)
- Forehead and brow area
- Around the eyes
What FaceTite results can I expect?
FaceTite sessions generally last about 30 – 45 minutes per treated area. It is an entirely nonsurgical procedure, with no sutures or scarring left behind. Louisville, KY patients in good health with mild to moderate skin laxity, and pockets of unwanted fat around the chin and neck are ideal candidates for this cosmetic treatment. After a FaceTite session, patients can return home to rest for the next 24 hours. Most patients can typically return to their regular routine in 1 – 2 days. However, it will take about 3 – 4 days for any swelling or redness in the treated areas to subside. Patients should also avoid rigorous exercising or strenuous activities for about 1 – 2 weeks following the procedure. Men and women may enjoy their FaceTite results for five years or longer by limiting exposure to harmful UV rays and wearing protective sunscreen on a daily basis. For even more dramatic results, ask Dr. Mizuguchi about combining FaceTite with other complementary cosmetic procedures offered at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery.
FaceTite is an excellent facial contouring option for patients wanting tighter, younger-looking skin. Aging, genetics, and sun exposure all significantly impact the skin over time, especially delicate areas, like the face and neck. FaceTite is a revolutionary treatment that can eliminate visible creases, lines, and wrinkles, as well as saggy skin around the jawline and neck area. You don't have to consider a facelift for skin rejuvenation help.
