FaceTite in Atlanta

The number of people in the United States undergoing minimally invasive cosmetic surgery procedures is growing, with an average of 18 million people getting treatment each year. Non-surgical or minimally invasive procedures are a great way for people to achieve their goals while not experiencing the side effects that come from traditional procedures. FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure that’s a wonderful option for those who want to transform how their face looks. Our facility offers FaceTite in Atlanta for those seeking to address problem areas on their neck and face.

If you’re curious about the benefits FaceTite has to offer and what to expect from the procedure, we’re going to talk about everything you need to know.

What Is FaceTite?

As the body ages, its collagen and elastin production begins to slow down. This causes visible lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. People can begin to feel self-conscious as the quality of their skin diminishes.

FaceTite works to tighten your skin and reduce fat on your face and neck. Your face is then countered for a more youthful and toned appearance. FaceTite utilizes radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) technology.

FaceTite is used in the following areas:

  • Deep lines
  • Double chins
  • Drooping jowls
  • Loose skin

The RFAL technology suction out fatty tissues in your neck and face while stimulating natural collagen production. These two things work together to create a smoother appearance.

For those who do not wish to undergo a more intensive surgical procedure, like a facelift, FaceTite is a recommended option.

How Does FaceTite Work?

During your procedure, RFAL works to remove fat from underneath the skin. The face and neck will be shaped into the desired contours. The stimulation of collagen production will firm and tighten the skin.

Patients receive light sedation or local anesthesia. A few incisions need to be made so the radiofrequency wand can be positioned properly. The incisions are in a place so they’re less visible and heal quickly.

It typically takes less than an hour to get a FaceTite procedure.

How Long Does FaceTite Last?

The results from a FaceTite treatment last several years. Some individuals start to see results immediately after their FaceTite session. Optimal results appear around three to eight weeks after the treatment.

Taking proper skincare precautions like wearing SPF outside will ensure your results last for five to seven years. One of the great things about FaceTite is that it penetrates your skin more deeply than ultrasound energy treatments.

Candidates for FaceTite Treatments

A qualified cosmetic surgeon will evaluate if a FaceTite treatment is right for you. They’ll take your goals in mind when creating a custom treatment plan.

Anyone who suffered from loose or sagging skin in the neck and face areas can benefit from FaceTite. The procedure is safe for all types of skin. It’s also effective for those whose skin has begun to show signs of aging but isn’t ready for a facelift.

Any adult who is older than 18 years of age can have FaceTite done. The ideal candidate is older than 30. If you’re frustrated with your ability to get rid of problem fat areas with diet and exercise, explore FaceTite.

How Much Does FaceTite Cost?

How much your procedure costs vary depending upon different factors. These factors include:

  • How many areas need treatment
  • How loose the patient’s skin is
  • Location

The procedure can cost anywhere from $1,500 to $7,000. Your cosmetic surgeon can give you a more accurate estimation of the cost.

How to Prepare for FaceTite

Patients should be in good health and at a stable weight for a few months before undergoing a procedure. Losing or gaining weight can affect your results. You may have to have the procedure repeated if that happens.

Speak to your surgeon about what medications and supplements you take. You may have to stop taking certain medications before your procedure. Talk with a friend or family member about taking you to and from your appointment.

How Is Ultherapy Different?

Ultherapy has similar goals to FaceTite but they’re achieved in different ways. Ultherapy is also minimally invasive. It uses ultrasound energy instead of the RFAL technology FaceTite uses.

Ultherapy decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and tightens the skin. It also lifts the brow and neck without the need for surgery. FaceTite accomplishes both of those things while dissolving fat.

There are small incisions with FaceTite but there are none with Ultherapy. The results with Ultherapy disappear much faster than with FaceTite. Your results will begin to diminish after about 12 months.

Other Skin Tightening Treatments

There are maintenance treatments you can get after your procedure to enhance the results you get from FaceTite. All of these skin tightening treatments are minimally or non-invasive. Pairing one of these treatments with skincare products and a healthy lifestyle will ensure you have long-lasting results.

Microneedling

Microneedling rejuvenates your skin, promoting collagen production and promoting healing. This procedure also requires little to no downtime after. During a microneedling procedure, small channels are created, enabling nutrients to penetrate into the skin.

Microneedling is a great option to extend the life of your FaceTite treatment. Microneedling works to address the following issues:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Loose skin
  • Scars
  • Large pores
  • Skin texture and tone
  • Hyperpigmentation

Microneedling uses fine needles to make small punctures in the skin. The needles are inserted at different depths. Topical anesthesia is used for this procedure.

With this treatment, you’ll get a series of treatments over the course of four to six weeks. Your skin may appear red for about a day but there is no downtime. You’ll see results immediately after your first treatment.

SkinWave Facial

What better way to treat yourself than with a SkinWave facial? Our facial technology will hydrate your skin and fix any issues with aging and drying. Your pores open up to receive hydrating solutions while the skin is gently exfoliated.

SkinWave facials are perfect for all skin types and issues. SkinWave utilizes hydration therapy, which provides moisturization and antioxidant benefits to the skin. It also reduces inflammation.

The following ingredients are in the hydration therapy treatment:

  • Beta hydroxy acid (BHA)
  • Alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA)
  • Hyaluronic acid

These ingredients work together to remove dead skin cells and control the oil production on your face. You can get a SkinWave facial done on your lunch break. It only takes 20 minutes.

There is also no downtime with this type of facial. You can resume your normal activities immediately after.

If you’ve had FaceTite done and want to freshen up your face, there is no better way to do that than with a facial. Treat yourself to an afternoon of relaxation while improving the appearance of your skin.

Photofacials

Photofacials use laser technology to give people a more even and bright skin tone. It removes pigmentation caused by sun damage and age spots.

Some of the benefits of Photofacial treatments include:

  • Non-surgical option
  • Redness reduction
  • Reduce capillaries around cheeks and nose
  • Address dark circles under the eyes

The technology used in Photofacial is state of the art. It stimulates your skin’s collagen production to improve the appearance of your skin. Treatments take around 30 minutes with very little recovery time.

You can receive Photofacial treatment on your chest, neck, and face areas. You’ll start to see your results a few days after your first Photofacial treatment. Maximum results will appear after one to two weeks.

The results from a Photofacial are permanent. Be mindful of sun exposure in the future so your previous skin issues don’t reappear.

Photofacials are wonderful treatment options when paired with FaceTite. They’ll give you long-lasting results while improving the quality of your skin.

Myths About FaceTite

One of the most common myths about FaceTite in Atlanta is that it’s a painful procedure. A local anesthetic is administered to minimize any pain or discomfort you may experience. Pain medications can also be recommended, depending upon each person’s pain tolerance.

Another myth is that the results of FaceTite are difficult to see. You can achieve optimal results with FaceTite, all while not having to go through an invasive surgical procedure. Your skin will also become tighter, which isn’t something you experience with some other procedures.

One final myth about FaceTite is there’s a lot of downtime involved. There is very little downtime with FaceTite, especially in comparison to other treatments. Individuals can go back to their regular activities within a few days after their procedure.
