Is sagging facial skin making you feel embarrassed about your appearance? As part of the body’s normal aging process, many women experience drooping skin due to genetics, prolonged exposure to the sun, and the loss of elastin and collagen over time. Now, you can fight loose skin with FaceTite® treatment from Dr. Erick Sanchez, a board-certified plastic surgeon practicing in Baton Rouge, LA. This nonsurgical procedure uses a process called radiofrequency-guided lipolysis to stimulate collagen production. The result is a smoother and more youthful complexion with tighter skin around the chin, jowls, and neck. We invite you to learn more about FaceTite solutions at Erick Sanchez, MD Plastic Surgery by scheduling a consultation.
Am I a Candidate For FaceTite?
Our skin quality changes as we age, which means that sagging facial skin is inevitable. FaceTite is an effective skin tightening treatment for individuals who struggle with the lower half of their faces. At his facility, Dr. Sanchez performs this revolutionary anti-aging technique without extended surgery. Since FaceTite is noninvasive, patients don’t have to worry about a long recovery time to get the result they want. Not only that, FaceTite can be used on sensitive areas of the face and neck with very little discomfort. The cheeks, chin, neck, and neckline and other areas can all be treated with great precision and power.
If you’re in your mid-40s to early-50s, FaceTite may work very well for you. FaceTite is used to address a wide variety of skin concerns, including:
Drooping jowls and neck skin
Wrinkles and other fine lines in the lower face
Double chin, or fullness beneath the chin
Decreased collagen and elastin production
FaceTite appeals to middle-aged patients who may not be ready for plastic surgery but would like to address the most common signs of getting older such as sagging skin. Ideal candidates for FaceTite are in relatively good health with mild to moderate loose skin around the chin and neck. To undergo this special skin therapy, patients should not have had any facial injections such as BOTOX® or Juvéderm® performed in the last 6 – 8 months as this may alter or affect the results. During your initial appointment, Dr. Sanchez will take the time to understand your medical history and study the elasticity of the skin to determine if you qualify for treatment.
The FaceTite Treatment Experience
If you’re not sold on the idea of surgery but want a more defined neck and jawline, Erick Sanchez, MD Plastic Surgery can perform a FaceTite session. This uses radiofrequency energy underneath the skin to firm and tighten the tissue. FaceTite treatments are performed under local anesthesia and involve the placement of a tiny cannula beneath the skin. Any incisions made are minimal and do not leave behind scars after healing. Using the FaceTite device, Dr. Sanchez releases radiofrequency power to minimize fat cells and contract the skin to encourage new collagen growth. The temperature is carefully monitored to make sure patients are comfortable throughout the process. In fact, the FaceTite system has many safeguards to ensure the procedure is safe and effective for patients while treating sagging skin. This includes uniform heat distribution for results that look completely smooth and even. Sessions last about 45 minutes for each treated area.
FaceTite Recovery and Downtime
After your FaceTite session, the staff at Erick Sanchez, MD Plastic Surgery will give you instructions and information about recovering at home. A fitted compression garment may need to be worn for the remainder of the day to provide comfort and help with any side effects such as swelling or bruising in the targeted areas. Most of these effects will improve drastically within the next few days. Patients are generally able to resume work and other daily activities after that time. To make sure you heal properly from FaceTite treatment, try to avoid strenuous exercise for about two weeks. Though patients notice some results immediately after FaceTite therapy, you will notice gradual improvements in sagging skin over the next 3 – 8 weeks as collagen and elastin production increase.
