FaceTite is a minimally invasive contouring solution for the face and small areas of the body. FaceTite is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure that utilizes targeted radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin from within the dermis. The treatment is performed under local anesthetic as a small hand-held applicator passes radiofrequency energy through an internal electrode. There are no incisions and any tiny pin-pricks heal within days. The entire procedure lasts no more than 40 minutes and is proven to tighten skin instantly and also remove targeted fat.

Ideal candidates are patients with loose, baggy skin on their face. It is not suitable for anyone that is pregnant. It is perfect for patients who want to look younger but do not want a surgical procedure or are not candidates for a facelift surgery. FaceTite works best on patients with moderate fat on their face or treatment area.

The typical cost for FaceTite ranges from $1500-$8000.The final cost depends on the area of the country where it is performed, any fees charged by the doctor or the facility, the surgeon’s level of expertise and if any other procedures are performed at the same time.

This procedure results in a more youthful and attractive facial appearance. FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure so recovery takes less time than a surgical facelift. Patients may experience swelling and redness after the treatment that should subside within 1-2 weeks. Most patients are usually back to work within 7-10 days. The results of the procedure will last up to five years. The skin will continue to age naturally and genetics and patient lifestyle may impact the length of the results.
