A normal part of the human body's standard aging process involves the slowing of elastin and collagen production in your epidermis. The result is much more visible wrinkles, lines, and creases, in addition to loose skin around the chin, neck, and jowls. To fight these signs of aging, Lou Plastic Surgery provides FaceTite. This premier nonsurgical procedure, advocated by Dr. Derek Lou, uses radiofrequency-guided lipolysis to melt and dislodge fat cells, causing your skin to firm and allowing collagen to be created at a much quicker rate. You can receive a smoother, more youthful facial appearance that presents fewer wrinkles without the invasiveness and recovery period from lifting operations. We invite you to schedule an appointment in our Houston, TX office to find out more about FaceTite and its amazing advantages.

"I inquired about surgery during the economic shutdown. I have never been one to love yo show my body off, and after having 3 kids I was embarrassed. Having to take pictures and send them in was hard. Dr. Lou was wonderful. He made me feel comfortable and never body shamed me. His staff was super accommodating and kind. They all explained things so well and the whole process as painless as possible. My post-op care was excellent. My body freaked out on me (no fault of Dr.Lou’s) and he reassured me that he would take care and fix everything. His staff was so kind and responsive. If I could do it again I would. I have never been happier."- T.M. / Google / Oct 30, 2020

FaceTite Ideal Candidates
FaceTite is normally used to deal with smaller, more sensitive areas, like the lines which form around your mouth and below the eyes, in addition to the loose skin around the neck and chin region. You're an ideal candidate for this treatment if you are experiencing early signs of aging and desire a boost in collagen production to achieve skin that is tighter. To be able to undergo this therapy, you shouldn't be pregnant or have had facial injections performed over the previous 6 – 8 months. An appointment with Dr. Lou may better help you learn more about your qualification for this procedure.
FaceTite Procedure Technique
This cosmetic therapy uses a minimally invasive process that involves placing a tiny cannula underneath your skin while utilizing local anesthesia. Once the cannula is placed, the temperature will be controlled and monitored through external and internal thermometers to make certain the heat stays at a comfortable temperature. The radiofrequency power that the FaceTite device releases will succeed in disrupting fat cells and will additionally cause your skin to contract, creating an increase in collagen production. Sessions normally last about 45 minutes per each treated area.
FaceTite What to Expect
Following a FaceTite treatment, you'll be sent home to rest and relax for the remaining portion of the day, wearing a special garment. You will be ready to go back to your normal 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 around two weeks after the treatment. Patients will generally see some results after their FaceTite therapy. But since 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 maintain a healthy weight through proper diet plan and exercise.
How much does FaceTite cost?
The cost of FaceTite will rely on the severity of your condition among other factors. During your first visit, Dr. Lou will go over all your cosmetic goals and will then be able to estimate your costs. We accept many forms of payment and can help you find low-interest financing.
What about a surgical facelift?
A facelift is one of the best treatment options for improving facial lines, wrinkles, and creating an overall tighter appearance. Liposuction is also an effective treatment for addresses stubborn pockets of fat under the chin that are unresponsive to diet and exercise (if fat is a concern). However, if you are not ready for a surgical procedure, then FaceTite may be the route for you.
Can BOTOX or fillers help?
Many times, BOTOX or a filler, like Juvéderm, is incorporated with this procedure to attain even more dramatic results. Typically, the FaceTite treatment is performed first and then BOTOX or fillers are used the next day or one week after your RF treatment. It's important to talk to Dr. Lou about all your needs and concerns so he can create a customized treated plan that is suited to your cosmetic goals.
How many treatments will I need?
Many patients experience noticeable results after just one treatment, but some may need multiple sessions to attain the outcomes they desire. When Dr. Lou performs a physical assessment of your face, he can make a recommendation of how many treatments you may need.
How long will my results last?
Your results will continue to improve over the next few months from your initial treatment. These outcomes are long-lasting, but it's important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine as weight gain can alter your results.
