What is FaceTite?
A normal part of the human body's standard aging process involves the slowing of collagen and elastin production in your epidermis. This leads to much more visible lines, creases, and wrinkles, as well as loose skin on the chin, neck, and jowls. To combat these signs of aging, Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery offers FaceTite. This premier nonsurgical procedure, advocated by our team, uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis to melt and dislodge fat cells, causing the skin to tighten and allowing collagen to be created at a much quicker rate. You can enjoy a tighter, more youthful facial appearance that presents with fewer wrinkles without experiencing the invasiveness and recovery period associated with lifting surgeries. We encourage you to schedule an appointment at our Reston, VA office to learn more about FaceTite and its amazing advantages.
"First-rate Care and First-rate Results! - Incredibly satisfied with my results. I woke up a couple months after surgery realizing I had forgotten I ever had or needed it in the first place, like I got to grow up without breasts-- and the euphoria from that is so worth it. Incredible both as my first experience with ANY surgery as well as my first experience with cosmetic surgery, Dr. Sigal put me at ease very quickly by being affirming, kind and excited about helping my body match me a little better. Would absolutely recommend Austin-Weston to trans people who are looking to have gender-affirming care by means of cosmetic surgery, and will most likely come back if I ever feel I need it."- F. / RealSelf / Oct 06, 2021
"I love Austin-Weston! The staff is so friendly and very knowledgeable. I went for a procedure called SculptSure and I was a little nervous about getting it done. I was afraid that it would be painful and that I wouldn’t really see any results. I talked with Shima Karimi and she explained to me what to expect in detail. She made sure to check in every 5-10 minutes during the procedure to make sure I was comfortable the whole time. The procedure was short, painless and easy! I can definitely see a big difference and I am super excited to go in for my second round of treatment. Thank you Austin-Weston!"- A.M. / Yelp / Sep 15, 2021
"I am almost done with my bikini and under arm laser hair removal with Shima is truly amazing. If you get jitters or nerves or retract, she is very patience and works with your fears or pain tolerance. Amazing work etiquette and standards all around. Couldn’t ask for a better facility, a better laser and a better esthetician."- H.F. / Yelp / Sep 09, 2021
"Dr. Weston made me look 20 years younger - After losing 110 pounds, I looked in the mirror and realized I lost at least half of that in my face. I felt great and looked awful, skin hanging from my neck and jowls that would make a bulldog jealous. I am very grateful to Austin Weston Clinic and in particular to Dr. Weston for a combination of his medical expertise and his artistic talent to turn back time. I am forever grateful to this wonderful man who made me look 20 years younger."- J. / RealSelf / Sep 08, 2021
"I have just had my second session and I already see a different in my waist line - I went to Shima for 2 session of Sculpsure. I had a wonderful experience. She was very detailed in explaining the procedure to me as well as post care. I was very comfortable throughout the procedure and Shima stayed in the room the whole time to ensure I was doing ok. I would definitely recommend going to Shima for your Sculpsure services. I have just had my second session and I already see a different in my waist line."- G. / RealSelf / Sep 06, 2021
Who should get FAcetite?
FaceTite is normally a great choice to deal with smaller, more delicate areas, like the lines that form around your mouth and below the eyes, in addition to the loose skin on the chin and neck area. You are an ideal candidate for this procedure if you are experiencing classic signs of aging and wish for an increase in collagen production to achieve tighter skin. In order to undergo this treatment, you shouldn't be pregnant or have had facial injections performed over the previous 6 – 8 months. A consultation with our team may better help you learn whether you qualify for this procedure.
How does Facetite Work?
This aesthetic treatment uses a minimally invasive process that involves placing a very small cannula beneath your skin while utilizing local anesthesia. Once the cannula is placed, the temperature will be controlled and monitored through internal and external thermometers to make certain the heat stays at a comfortable level. The radiofrequency power the FaceTite device releases will be effective in disrupting fat cells and will also cause the skin to contract, creating an increase in collagen production. Sessions typically last about 45 minutes per treated area. After a FaceTite procedure, you will be sent home to rest for the remainder of the day wearing a fitted compression garment. You should be ready to go back to your daily routine by the following day. It might take approximately three days for any redness or swelling to subside. Strenuous exercises and activities should be avoided for around two weeks after the treatment. Patients will normally see some results directly after their FaceTite treatment. However, because the procedure involves stimulating the collagen growth process, you will notice more gradual improvements for around 3 – 8 weeks afterward. Your results will be long-lasting should you maintain a healthy weight through a proper diet plan and exercise.

Younger, Tighter Skin
Aesthetic surgery procedures such as neck and facelifts do not need to be the only choice for creating tighter, more youthful skin. FaceTite, offered by our Reston, VA practice, can tighten skin and address a stubborn double chin. It utilizes a special radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis technique that ignites collagen and contracts the epidermis.
