Once you begin to notice lines, wrinkles, and sagging facial skin, you may think plastic surgery is your only option. In reality, patients today have more choices than ever before when it comes to nonsurgical and minimally invasive facial rejuvenation. At Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Hanz understands that many men and women may not be ready, willing, or able to undergo invasive cosmetic surgery and is proud to offer a wide range of facelift alternatives, including FaceTite, to help these patients look and feel their best. Explore the benefits of FaceTite here, and find out if FaceTite treatment may be appropriate for your signs of facial aging or if you may be better suited to a surgical facelift.
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is a minimally invasive alternative to facelift surgery that utilizes radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis to address adipose tissue, tighten loose skin, and firm up droopy facial features. During a FaceTite treatment, Dr. Hanz will first numb the area with local anesthesia. A specialized cannula will be inserted beneath the skin via a tiny incision, allowing radiofrequency (RF) energy to be emitted to the tissues. Using both internal and external thermometers, Dr. Hanz will monitor the temperature of the tissues to ensure the treatment is safe and effective. Over the course of treatment, the RF energy will dislodge stubborn fat cells, stimulate collagen and elastin production, and help the tissues to contract – leaving patients with a tauter and more youthful look.
Where can FaceTite be used?
Much like facial rejuvenation surgery, FaceTite can address signs of aging across virtually the entire face and neck. Some of the most common concerns that can be improved with FaceTite skin tightening include:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Visible creases
- Facial folds
- Sagging skin beneath the eyes
- Loose neck skin
- Drooping jowls
- Double chin
Is my skin too loose for FaceTite?
Some patients who are interested in FaceTite treatment have concerns that their degree of skin laxity is too advanced for a minimally invasive procedure to be effective. While it is certainly true that facelift surgery is the most appropriate option for reversing severe signs of facial aging, FaceTite treatment can still provide remarkable results for patients with sagging skin and drooping features. During your initial consultation for facial rejuvenation in Dallas, TX, Dr. Hanz will examine your features, assess your skin laxity, and determine whether facelift surgery vs. FaceTite is most appropriate for you.
Comparing Facelift vs. FaceTite
Some of the most compelling benefits of FaceTite compared with facelift surgery are:
- Less invasive
- No general anesthesia required
- Much shorter recovery period
- Less postoperative swelling and bruising
- No visible scarring
- More convenient
- More affordable
For patients seeking an alternative to facelift surgery that can still provide stunning, natural-looking, and long-lasting results, FaceTite may be an exciting solution.
