Slimmer, Tighter Facial Contours
As our skin ages, collagen and elastin levels decrease, resulting in more lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin in the jowls, chin, and neck. Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery, offers treatments with FaceTite to address these common concerns without surgery. This state-of-the-art non-surgical procedure uses radiofrequency to heat and remove fat cells while also causing collagen production to increase. With FaceTite Reston patients can achieve a dramatically tighter and more youthful look without the downtime that comes with surgical lifting operations, taking years off of your appearance.
A Minimally-Invasive Approach With Impressive Outcomes
The FaceTite device uses radiofrequency to melt fat and tighten loose skin around the lower face, chin, and neck. Only a small incision is needed to insert the FaceTite wand beneath the skin in the treatment area. This minimally invasive treatment delivers impressive results on its own. It can also be combined with other procedures like a facelift and liposuction for more refined lifting and tightening.
Get Ahead of Aging Skin
At our practice in Reston FaceTite is normally a great choice to treat small areas with delicate skin, such as perioral lines around the mouth and fine lines under the eyes and loose. It is especially effective at tightening lax skin on the neck, chin, and jowls while reducing underlying fat deposits. Candidates for FaceTite treatment are typically experiencing classic signs of aging like lines, wrinkles, and sagging and can benefit from the big boost in collagen production that FaceTite provides to achieve impressive skin tightening and sculpting.
Who should get FaceTite?
At your consultation, we will help determine whether FaceTite is a good fit for your needs and aesthetic goals. Patients love this procedure because of its ease and minimally-invasive nature. Radiofrequency should not be used in areas where facial injections have been performed within the previous six to eight months. Your Austin-Weston aesthetic provider will ensure that you are a good candidate to safely undergo any procedure you pursue.
Your Personalized Assessment
Schedule a consultation at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery, to meet with a member of our Reston plastic surgery team. They will answer all of your questions and listen to your reasons for seeking treatment. They can also assess the skin and tissues of your face to help you decide whether FaceTite’s skin tightening and fat-melting benefits can give you the results you are seeking.
Sculpt and Tighten From Within
Local anesthetic is all that is necessary to ensure patient comfort during the FaceTite procedure. Once the treatment area is numb, your surgeon will create a small incision and introduce the FaceTite wand beneath the skin. Electrodes in this device deliver radiofrequency waves that liquefy fat cells. This process is frequently combined with liposuction. At the same time, the radiofrequency energy stimulates the collagen fibers beneath the skin, helping to tone and tighten the dermal layers.
Recover in Days, Not Weeks
You will be sent home with a compression garment to wear for the first few days to help the skin heal and tighten optimally. Most people benefit from four to five days of downtime, but this can vary depending on the individual and the extent of the treatment. Aftercare instructions will include showering the day after the procedure and avoiding strenuous exercise for approximately one week. Swelling is normal while the area heals, but most people don’t experience much discomfort.
RF Technology for Remarkable Results
Once the swelling subsides, the fat reduction in the treatment area will be immediately noticeable. It will take a little longer for the tightening effects to show up as collagen fibers are restored in the skin.
Approximately 70 percent of the results of FaceTite are visible after about six to eight weeks. It may take four to six months for complete skin tightening, and some people see ongoing improvements over the first year post-procedure. FaceTite can dramatically tighten, slim, and smooth the neck and jowl region, with results that rival those of surgery.
After about a year, the elasticity of the skin in the treatment area may begin to diminish. However, even as the original results decline, most people continue to enjoy toning and tightening benefits from FaceTite for several years.
The technology used in FaceTite is considered to be very safe. There is a small risk of adverse effects such as burns, injury to nerves, or unsatisfactory aesthetic results. However, when you have the FaceTite procedure performed by a highly qualified provider, such risks are minimal.
