FaceTite is among the newest anti-aging tools in Dr. Kwak’s innovative arsenal. The technology can firm and tighten sagging skin, restoring a youthful look that was previously only possible with invasive facelift surgery. When aging, sun damage, or environmental stressors have led to facial laxity, FaceTite can be a transformative solution. The device uses state-of-the-art radiofrequency RF energy to heat the deep layers of tissue, contracting the skin while triggering the regeneration of collagen.

What is FaceTite?

FaceTite addresses facial aging in both the short term, by initiating skin contraction, and the long-term, by stimulating collagen renewal. The procedure can address laxity in the brows, midface, chin, and neck. Over time, the increased collagen levels provide a more youthful-looking scaffolding and facial structure, creating long-lasting improvements in the complexion.

FaceTite can address:

  • Loss of definition in the jawline
  • Sagging jowls
  • Laxity in the neck
  • Wrinkles, lines, creases, and folds
  • A double chin
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Decreased levels of collagen and elastin

How does FaceTite work?

FaceTite is performed on an outpatient basis using a topical anesthetic. During treatment, your practitioner will place a small electrode on top of the skin. A cannula is then inserted into a tiny incision through which FaceTite’s radiofrequency energy is delivered. The gentle thermal heating of the skin layers results in contraction that smoothes away age-related laxity. Excess fat can also be removed with the device.

What areas can FaceTite address?

  • Jowls
  • Jawline
  • Brow
  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Neck

What are the benefits of FaceTite?

  • Firmer, tighter skin
  • A more youthful-looking appearance
  • Replenished store of collagen
  • Minimally-invasive treatment
  • Minimal downtime
  • Combats the signs of aging
  • Enhances self-confidence

What type of anesthesia will be used?

Only local anesthesia is typically needed for FaceTite. If the treatment is combined with a surgical procedure, then general anesthesia may be required. Dr. Kwak will go over your options with you during your private consultation.

How many FaceTite treatments will I need?

Many clients will find that only one FaceTite session is needed to achieve their skin tightening goals. Others may need 1-3 treatments to experience their desired result. Dr. Kwak will counsel you on the number of treatments needed during your consultation.

How long does FaceTite last?

While FaceTite results can last for years, the treatment cannot completely halt the aging process. Factors such as weight fluctuations and exposure to the sun may impact the longevity of your outcome. To ensure your FaceTite changes last as long as possible, you should maintain a healthy weight, protect your skin from the sun, avoid smoking, drink enough water, and practice a skincare regimen with regular moisturizing.

Should I get FaceTite or a facelift?

Facelift surgery can be invaluable in the fight against sagging skin, especially for older clients with an excess of skin ptosis. For younger clients who are just beginning to see the signs of aging, FaceTite can help restore their appearance without having to undergo the higher risks of general anesthesia, incisions, scarring, and recovery time.
