About FaceTite

facetite new york

FaceTite offers patients an efficient and cost-effective way to tighten lax and sagging skin at  their faces. The treatment does not require a whole lot. Patients can avoid extensive interventions, lengthy recovery times, or sutures. This minimally invasive technology simply firms up the face using a handheld device where electrodes go skin deep to target unwanted fat cells. Those same electrodes transmit fat-melting RF waves. The waves heat up and cause fat cells to melt away. FaceTite’s high-temperature RF waves safely retract the skin and initiate the body’s natural production of collagen. Your face will be left feeling firmer and tighter. No incisions are made and your healing time is much faster.

How Does FaceTite Really Work?

Two electrodes are used during the FaceTite treatment. One is at the tip of a thin wand that is inserted under the skin through a minute incision. The other lies above the skin using a U-shaped handheld device.  The slender internal wand does double duties by assisting in melting away fatty tissue and removing fat cells through a small cannula. Each of the electrodes is doing its part to melt fat down and tighten the facial structure. Temperatures of the internal electrode can reach up to 185°F and the external electrode reaches 135°F but the treatment does a great job of ensuring the comfort and safety of our patients. [1] The external electrode comes with special responders that communicate with the FaceTite’s computer and can automatically turn the RF energy on or off when needed. This safe, prolonged exposure of thermal energy rejuvenates soft tissue that smoothes out your skin. [2]

Preparation

There are a few things you can do to ensure a smooth ride during your treatment. Patients are asked to stop taking certain medications and supplements as they may conflict with the treatment. Let us know of any prescriptions you are taking so we can fully explore our options. Dr. Abramson may ask you to stop taking blood thinners and non-inflammatory OTC drugs such as ibuprofen in the days leading to your session to avoid complications. Please arrange to have someone you trust drive you home after treatment. It is best to do your shopping and pharmacy visits before your procedure.

Procedure

The FaceTite use of efficiency is second to none. It is constantly working its luminous energy to ensure that each RF wavelength and treatment area is catered to you. The handpiece is adjusted to target beneath the skin, and the anesthesia used will ensure that any discomfort is minimal. Dr. Abramson will make a small incision and will insert the long, thin electrode cannula under your skin. Its tip is designed specifically to target unwanted fat. While it passes through, RF alternates its direction while maintaining a consistent temperature that’s good for your results and comfort. [3] Dr. Abramson will treat your chin, around the jawline, and cheeks in a steady but delicate manner.  

Recovery

The beauty of FaceTite is that it is an efficient procedure that doesn’t involve downtime. The average time of the treatment of your lower face should take 15 minutes. [4]  Once complete, you’ll be given a face and neck compression garment to wear. This is to maintain the results and lessen the swelling. Some bruising, swelling, and discomfort may be felt for 2-3 days following your treatment. You can go back to work within a week. 

Results

Patients may notice smoother skin. However, six months may pass until you see the full effects. You will begin to see attractive facial contours and a youthful look. The minor incision made during your treatment will heal quickly without the need for stitches or sutures. There are no side effects and as long as you maintain your results with regular exercising and healthy dieting you can keep the results for a long time.

A facelift is a surgical procedure that enhances the face by repositioning the skin to give off a youthful appearance. Their results last up to 10 years.
