When age and environmental factors take a toll on your skin, over-the-counter creams may not provide the results you want. At the same time, cosmetic surgery could be too invasive and risky. Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery now offers a new, nonsurgical treatment that reduces fine lines and fat deposits for a slimmer, more youthful appearance – FaceTite.
Below, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Hanz describes how FaceTite works and why it is an effective alternative to plastic surgery. Call our Dallas, TX team and see why so many men and women have benefited from this innovative procedure.
Why does my face look heavy?
Many factors contribute to loose skin around the neck, jowls, and chin, as well as small fat deposits. Age is the primary cause as skin loses elasticity and decreases collagen production. And no matter how much you diet and exercise, some areas are simply resistant to change. All these issues and more can make you feel like your face looks heavier or fuller than it did in the past.
What does FaceTite™ involve?
FaceTite uses radiofrequency-guided lipolysis to heat up and remove fat cells while tightening the skin through increased collagen production. It involves placing a tiny cannula in the treatment area using local anesthesia. Temperatures are monitored and controlled throughout the procedure to ensure your safety and comfort.
FaceTite is primarily used in the lower face, including the neck, jowls, and chin. This procedure does not require any invasive methods or scarring, so you enjoy natural-looking results with little to no downtime. Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer FaceTite as a nonsurgical treatment for patients in Dallas, TX.
Does FaceTite™ produce a slimmer look?
Dr. Hanz is often asked if FaceTite can help patients achieve a slimmer face. The answer is yes – FaceTite can contour your face to remove fat deposits while addressing loose or wrinkled skin. Anyone concerned about potential results is welcome to view FaceTite before-and-after photos in our office. Our patients report excellent results and high levels of satisfaction through this advanced procedure.
What is recovery like after FaceTite™?
Some side effects are expected after undergoing FaceTite. However, they are usually mild in nature and resolve quickly. These may include redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness for about three days. Dr. Hanz recommends avoiding strenuous activities for approximately 1 – 2 weeks, so your face has time to heal. Our staff can provide a detailed list of post-procedure instructions before you leave our office.
How to maintain your results long-term
Your final FaceTite results should appear about 3 – 8 weeks after your procedure. This is because collagen production is an essential part of the skin-tightening process. Outcomes are considered long-lasting, but it is still important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and protect your skin from the sun. We also suggest scheduling follow-up appointments with Dr. Hanz to ensure your skin stays healthy and firm long-term.
