What can I expect during FaceTite?
During the FaceTite treatment, the cosmetic doctor will administer local anesthesia to ensure optimal comfort. He makes a small incision on the skin’s surface to insert two probes, one on either side of the skin. The probes are pinched together on both sides of the skin. The device is activated to generate radiofrequency waves between the probes that are then moved back and forth across the treatment area. As the radiofrequency energy liquefies the fat cells, another tube is inserted to suction away the liquified fat. The doctor controls the temperature to ensure there’s no unwanted damage to the skin’s surface.
What can I expect after FaceTite?
FaceTite is an in-office and outpatient procedure that usually concludes within 30 to 60 minutes with minimal downtime. Your doctor will provide compression garments to be worn at home to ensure your body heals perfectly. You may experience some swelling, redness, and bruising for a few days, but you can resume most of your daily activities within 48 hours. You should wear sunscreen whenever you step outside for a few weeks.
What kind of results can I expect?
FaceTite provides instant results with continued improvements over several weeks. The unwanted fat is suctioned out of your body, so your face looks significantly slimmer. However, the skin will start tightening after a few days and continue improving for several months as your body produces new collagen fibers. The fat reduction results are instantaneous, but the skin tightening results take time.
