Face Tite is a new Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) technology approved by the FDA that will help eliminate the problem areas of your face and chin. This device uses radiofrequency energy to tighten, smooth and lift problem areas on the face and neck to pinpoint results. The procedure is minimally invasive and a great option for patients who want to remove fat deposits and tighten their skin, but do not want to undergo extensive plastic surgery or show large scarring in the process. Face Tite is ideal for small treatment areas on the face, cheeks, jowls, and chin that need skin tightening, contouring, and fat reduction.
Face Tite uses RFAL technology to both melt the fat deposits and tighten the skin simultaneously. The device has two active probes that project out of the handle. One probe is long and blunt; it looks like a smaller cannula. The other probe is wider and flat; it actually goes inside the body. The two probes transmit radiofrequency energy between them. The flow of energy is controlled by the connected computer system to ensure precise control and safety for the patient. The probes move over and under the skin to melt the fat deposits for liposuction while also stimulating the skin to aide in tightening and prevent loose skin. This unique approach allows the application of RFAL to much more than just simple liposuction.
Face Tite can be used to tighten and lift precise areas of the face. These areas can include the cheek, below the eyes, chin, and jowls. The procedure will smooth and tighten these areas with results that rival a face lift, but they will not involve the recovery time or scars that come with the procedure. Face Tite uses small cannulas that leave a tiny incision that is very easily healed and leaves no visible scaring to the patient’s face. The downtime of the procedure is much less than that of traditional surgery and usually all discomfort is eliminated within days.
Face Tite is an in-office procedure that does not require a hospital stay. Patients will therefore undergo much less trauma, but will normally experience minimal bruising from the Face Tite RFAL and swelling for a few days. You will notice immediate results within about a week, but the results will be more apparent over the course of about three months following RFAL treatment.
