FaceTite

Imagine turning back the clock by years without a single incision. Using FaceTite, you can improve loose or sagging skin around the face without lengthy downtimes or scarring. Dr. Linville is proud to offer this revolutionary procedure to residents in Houston and the surrounding areas.

What Is FaceTite?

FaceTite is a minimally-invasive mini facelift. Traditionally, a facelift would require several incisions and weeks spent in recovery. Additionally, there is always a risk involved in surgeries. With FaceTite, you can achieve stunning results with none of the setbacks from surgery.

FaceTite is a bladeless, scarless, non-surgical procedure that uses radiofrequency technology to improve skin laxity in the face and neck. It uses radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) for effective fat removal and cellulite reduction with noticeable skin tightening effects.

In short, it is a safer and more convenient alternative to a facelift surgery. While a facelift is still optimal for many patients, you can discuss the possibility of this minimally-invasive alternative during your consultation.

FaceTite May Be Performed On:

  • Jowls
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Cheeks
  • Brow
  • Eyes
  • Mouth
  • Forehead
  • Jawline

Benefits of FaceTite

Protects fat and deeper structures

The collateral damage to fat and other delicate structures are minimized. That means only the tissues you want to change are affected.

Safety is designed into the system

There are three specific feedback systems that prevent over-treatment of a given area. These are continuously monitored and stop the energy once a certain threshold is reached. However, it takes an experienced cosmetic surgeon to ensure a safe procedure.

Easily tolerated under local anesthesia

General anesthesia can take a toll on your body. Local anesthesia is much safer, lighter, and less costly than a heavier alternative. Yet it still keeps you comfortable throughout the procedure.

Tiny points of entry

The small diameter of the FaceTite probes means that they can be introduced under the skin through tiny openings in the skin that are virtually invisible after a few days.

Easy recovery

The recovery time or “downtime” is just a few short days. You will be able to return to your daily routine in a fraction of the time compared to surgery recovery. But it is still important to follow all your post-treatment instructions for the best results.

Who Is an Ideal Candidate For FaceTite

Candidates with loose or sagging skin in the face and neck areas will benefit from FaceTite. This procedure is safe for any skin type, delivering amazing results for a wide range of patients. FaceTite has also proven very effective for patients who are experiencing signs of aging but do not want to have a facelift. There are limits, but Dr. Linville will discuss your options with you during your personal meeting.

You can also be a candidate if you have already had a facelift in the past. Many patients look for ways to maintain their results after surgery, and FaceTite is a great way to accomplish this.

How Does Facetite Work?

Before treatment, Dr. Linville numbs the treatment area with a special cream. You will also receive an oral sedative to ensure maximum comfort. Next, a light sedative will be injected, followed by a tumescent anesthetic. We ensure that the level of sedation is optimal for each patient individually.

Dr. Linville then creates a small incision near the treatment area. By strategically making and placing it, no sutures will be required. When done right by an experienced surgeon, no scar is left behind. Next, a probe is inserted through the tiny incision. The probe heats the underlying tissues, in turn making them tighten and contract. The incision does not leave a visible scar.

You will see results immediately. However, it can take some time for your final results to appear. As your body responds to the treatment, you will see continual improvement over the first few weeks.  The enduring results from FaceTite may last up to about five years, very similar to a mini Face Lift. Genetics and lifestyle may affect the lifespan of the treatment. But if you take care of yourself and your body, your results should be with you for years to come.
