FaceTite™ skin tightening treatment is offered by the Upper East Side (Manhattan, NYC) board certified plastic Surgeon. FaceTite™ is the most advanced non-surgical, minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that aims to contour and tightening the tissue and skin on your face and neck. The treatment also coagulates facial and neck fat on the following target areas:
FaceTite™ delivers exceptional skin contouring and skin tightening and fat coagulation similar to a facelift without the need for traditional surgical excision. The treatment is safe, highly effective, and designed to minimize fat (and / or sagging skin) and contour targeted areas on the patient’s face. Unlike a face or neck lift, FaceTite™ eliminates the hassle of excisional surgery, noticeable scarring, and extra downtime. With FaceTite™, the results are immediate and last up to 10 years (about the same time as major surgery with similar results).
Because FaceTite™ is a non-surgical procedure, your plastic surgeon can easily and effectively work on the subdermal plane to reduce skin laxity on the face and neck in a single treatment.
You will have an initial consultation with one of our top notch NYC board certified plastic surgeons to create a custom treatment plan based on your needs and medical history. If you decide FaceTite™ is the best fit, your best in class board certified Manhattan-based plastic surgeon will outline the procedure and schedule you for a FaceTite™ treatment at your earliest convenience. Your doctor may discuss with you the possibility of combining FaceTite™ treatment with some light liposuction for faster results, if needed.
The FaceTite™ procedure is done under local anesthetic to maximize your comfort and ensure the treatment is seamless and pain free. Your top of the line board certified plastic surgeon will perform the treatment at our premier NYC surgery center located on the Upper East Side, Manhattan. After local anesthetic is applied to the target areas, your plastic surgeon will insert a miniscule tube (formally known as a cannula) under the skin and thermal energy is utilized to heat up fatty tissue in order to reduce unwanted fat and tighten skin on the target areas.
Small perforations are made under the chin and on each side of the face to ensure the FaceTite™ can painlessly reach all the necessary target areas. The FaceTite™ technology consists of two probes, the inner probe goes under the skin via the small perforations and the outer probe glides across the top of the skin parallel to the outer probe. The probes are connected by a handle for your doctor to guide both probes during the minimally FaceTite™ invasive procedure.
Your top rated plastic surgeon will carefully (and painlessly) move the FaceTite™ probes across the face and neck in conjunction with the inserted cannula to provide sufficient thermal heat to the necessary affected areas and effectively remove unwanted fat and skin laxity. Your plastic surgeon will provide you with a compression garment to wear for the first 48 hours and may recommend nighttime usage for a short period of time to reduce swelling and provide sufficient post-procedural face and neck support.
The FaceTite™ treatment recovery is minimal, with swelling usually only lasting up to a week. There may be tenderness and numbness around the neck and face. Intense exercise should be avoided for the first 48 hours after treatment and you may need to take 2-5 days off work to recover. Avoid wearing make up for the first 48 hours while the compression garment is on. Minimal numbness on and around the affected area is completely normal and may last for the first few months. Many patients see results immediately and the skin will continue to tighten and conform as time goes on, with more obvious results within four months of FaceTite™ treatment.
