Your face is your calling card to the world, and though the changes that happen with time can’t be eliminated, there are many products, treatments, and techniques available to help you limit the effects of aging.
The facelift has long been known as a way to achieve dramatic results, and it remains the gold standard once skin laxity reaches the point where other methods no longer produce the results you want. However, you don’t have to wait until your skin reaches that point to make a change.
FaceTite offers a nonsurgical, minimally invasive way to tighten skin and contour your face, allowing you to benefit from younger-looking skin years before a facelift becomes necessary. To find out more about FaceTite and what it can do for you, visit Diamond Surgical Institute in Encino, California for a personalized consultation with Dr. Roya Dardashti. FaceTite might be the treatment for which you’ve waited.
The power of radiofrequency energy
FaceTite uses mild, concentrated radiofrequency (RF) waves to selectively warm tissue in the treatment areas around your face. This warming action accomplishes two important refinements to your skin.
The first results in skin contraction as it responds to the subdermal heat generated by the FaceTite wand. As your skin tightens, it pulls its own tissue out of the fissures and crevasses that create the lines and wrinkles that prematurely age the appearance of your skin. New collagen tissue starts to form. A support layer for surface skin, it, too, adds volume and hydration, adding to the renewal of your complexion.
Second, FaceTite combines well with mild liposuction to reshape places where excess fat resists other efforts to reduce and tone. You can improve the profile of your jawline, neck, mouth, and cheeks. Between fat removal and collagen stimulation, FaceTite offers a powerful combination to rejuvenate your appearance.
The FaceTite treatment
Instead of a Face Lift procedure requiring a long recovery time, FaceTite is a surgical procedure that typically has a quicker recovery time. You can go to work or go shopping in mere days. Dr. Dardashti makes small incisions for the FaceTite wand, which carries an electrode for the radiofrequency portion of the treatment as well as a small tube called a cannula for removal of liquified fat.
Recovery from the procedure takes only a day or two for most people, though it could take up to five days. You’ll wear a compression garment home from the procedure to combat swelling, which is the most common reaction. You may experience slight bruising in the treatment area, though there are typically few other side effects to the FaceTite procedure.
Once the swelling subsides, you’ll see improvements in skin laxity within a week. The tightening and collagen regeneration effects continue over a period of months. You can expect about 70% of your final results at the six-week mark.
Unlike some other cosmetic procedures, one FaceTite treatment is all you need, and the results last for years. FaceTite can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, including microneedling.
