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.

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.
