Featured Image

Loose skin on the face, wrinkles, and other signs of aging often leave men and women throughout Dallas, TX searching for viable options to revive their youthful appearance. FaceTite at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is one such solution that provides a minimally invasive way to tighten skin on the face for a firmer, smoother result. As a nonsurgical treatment, FaceTite employs state-of-the-art technology to help recontour the delicate areas of the face and neck without the downtime or recovery of facelift surgery. If you’ve been considering facial rejuvenation treatments, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Hanz welcomes you to learn more about the benefits of FaceTite and what you can expect with this cutting-edge aesthetic treatment.

Is FaceTite right for me?

Patients in Dallas, TX who desire a skin tightening procedure yet prefer to avoid surgery may be good candidates for FaceTite. This treatment can be effective for most skin types and can help improve the appearance of:

  • Loose skin
  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Drooping brows or eyelids
  • Smile lines or laugh lines around the mouth
  • Sagging jowls or neck skin
  • Excess fat in the cheeks or under the chin

How does FaceTite work?

FaceTite works through radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) technology to contour the face, neck, and other small areas around the body. The process can lift, firm, and tighten the skin while melting unwanted fat and creating a younger-looking facial profile. Radiofrequency (RF) energy from the FaceTite handpiece stimulates collagen and elastin production to help firm up skin laxity while a special cannula inserted beneath the skin’s surface gently suctions excess fat tissue. Often referred to as a nonsurgical facelift, FaceTite at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is a safe, outpatient treatment that does not cause visible scarring.

What is the FaceTite recovery process like?

FaceTime recovery typically carries very little downtime, given its minimally invasive nature. It's normal to experience slight redness and swelling in the skin for about 24 – 48 hours and an uneven complexion for a couple of weeks as the skin heals. Since there are no major incisions or sutures required, you can usually return to normal daily activities in about two days following your FaceTite procedure. Some enhancements in skin laxity may be noticeable right after the treatment. However, most patients begin to see visible improvements in their skin and facial appearance about 3 – 8 weeks following FaceTite treatment, which is generally the time it takes for new collagen to form.

How long do FaceTite results last?

Several factors can impact the longevity of FaceTite results, including lifestyle habits (like skin care, sun exposure, and smoking) and the natural aging process. Many men and women who choose this option find that their FaceTite results last from 1 – 5 years. A member of our Dallas, TX plastic surgery team will provide you with instructions on how to care for your skin and tips on keeping your skin looking and feeling as youthful as possible following your procedure. Dr. Hanz can help you determine if future follow-up treatments may be needed to maintain your results or if FaceTite might be paired with other services to achieve your desired outcomes.
