A normal part of the human body's natural aging process includes the slowing of elastin and collagen production in your epidermis. The end result is much more visible creases, wrinkles, and lines, in addition to loose skin around the jowls, chin, and neck. To fight the symptoms of aging, The Loudoun Center for Plastic Surgery provides FaceTite. This premier nonsurgical procedure, performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael J. Brown, uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis to melt and dislodge cells, causing your skin to firm and allowing collagen to be created at a much quicker rate. It is possible to receive a smoother, more youthful facial appearance that presents with fewer wrinkles without dealing with the invasiveness and recovery period from lifting operations. We invite you to schedule an appointment in our Ashburn, VA office to find out more about FaceTite and its amazing advantages.
FaceTite is an exciting option for the treatment of small, sensitive facial areas, like the lines that form around your mouth and below the eyes, in addition to the loose skin around the neck and chin region. You're a great candidate for this treatment if you are experiencing the early signs of aging and wish for an improvement in collagen production to achieve skin that is firmer and more youthful. Women who are pregnant and patients who have had facial injections performed over the previous 6 – 8 months should not undergo the FaceTite procedure. An appointment with Dr. Brown may better help you learn whether you qualify for this procedure or if another minimally invasive or nonsurgical procedure may be a better option.
The FaceTite procedure involves a minimally invasive technique that includes placing a tiny cannula (suction tube) beneath your skin while utilizing local anesthesia. Once the cannula is placed, the radiofrequency energy temperature will be controlled and monitored through external and internal thermometers on the FaceTite applicator to make certain the heat stays at a comfortable temperature. The radiofrequency energy released by the FaceTite device will reduce fat cells and cause the skin to contract, creating an increase in collagen production. Sessions normally last about 45 minutes per each treated area.
What to Expect
Following a FaceTite treatment, you'll be asked to return home to rest and relax for the remainder of the day wearing a fitted compression garment. You will be ready to go back to your daily routine by the following day. It can take approximately three days for any discoloration or swelling to fade. Strenuous exercises and activities should be avoided for approximately two weeks after the treatment. Patients will usually notice some results immediately following their FaceTite therapy. But because the process involves stimulating the collagen growth process, you may notice more gradual improvements for about 3 – 8 weeks afterward. Your results will likely be long-lasting should you keep a healthy weight through proper diet and exercise.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does FaceTite cost?
The cost of your FaceTite procedure will depend on the size of the treatment area, as well as the number of sessions that will be needed to achieve your aesthetic goals. During a consultation at The Loudoun Center for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Brown will discuss your cosmetic goals and recommend a treatment plan before estimating your costs. Our practice accepts many forms of payment and can help you find low-interest financing.
What about a surgical facelift?
FaceTite is an ideal procedure for any patient that wishes to see an improvement to their facial appearance without undergoing surgery. However, a facelift is one of the best treatment options for the long-term improvement of facial lines, wrinkles, and loose skin.
Can BOTOX or fillers help?
It is very common for surgeons to recommend treatment plans that include injectables with procedures, like FaceTite. Dramatic results are often achieved when BOTOX or a filler, like Juvéderm, is incorporated with this procedure. Discuss your overall aesthetic goals with Dr. Brown to learn if adding fillers or BOTOX to your treatment plan would help you attain even more dramatic results.
How many treatments will I need?
In many cases, only one treatment is sufficient to achieve a patient's desired results. However, patients with very loose skin may need additional treatment to attain the firmer, youthful look they wish for.
How long will my results last?
You will have some results immediately that will continue to improve over the coming months following your treatment. The final outcome will be long-lasting, but it's important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine so that your results are not altered by weight gain.
