How Long Do the Results of FaceTite Last?

by | Mar 11, 2020

Do you wish you had tighter, younger-looking skin on the face and neck? Although a facelift may be right for some people, FaceTite is a minimally invasive treatment that provides similar results without the surgery. This process is made possible by new advancements in radiofrequency (RF) technology. Board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Erick Sanchez delivers radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production, a protein that keeps your skin firm.

If you want to avoid the many side effects and complications of invasive surgery, FaceTite may be the perfect option for you at Sanchez Plastic Surgery. Instead of getting long incisions along the hairline and ears, FaceTite works by tightening the underlying facial structures. The end result is fewer visible creases and lines in addition to loose skin around the chin and neck. If you would like to learn more about minimally invasive skin tightening and FaceTite results, schedule an appointment at our facility in Baton Rouge, LA.

Candidates for nonsurgical skin tightening

FaceTite is an ideal treatment for individuals who are not ready for invasive surgery. Candidates for nonsurgical rejuvenation include those with mild to moderate loose skin on the face or neck. FaceTite can also be conveniently combined with other procedures, such as a brow lift or eyelid treatment. During your consultation with Dr. Sanchez, we can create a custom plan to help you love your skin again.

To undergo this kind of therapy, patients should not be pregnant or had facial injections performed in the previous 6 – 8 months. The best way to know whether you are a suitable candidate is to sit down with Dr. Sanchez to discuss your skin goals. Some of the main benefits of FaceTite treatment include the following:

  • Significant face tightening results

  • Uniform treatment with consistent results

  • Less bruising, swelling, and discomfort

  • Shorter recovery and downtime

How does FaceTite work?

FaceTite is an FDA-approved minimally invasive skin tightening treatment that involves placing a small cannula beneath the skin. At Sanchez Plastic Surgery in Baton Rouge, LA, we will apply local anesthesia to help you feel comfortable during the procedure. Once the cannula is placed, our team can monitor and control the temperature through thermometers to make sure the heat stays at a safe temperature. The radiofrequency power succeeds in minimizing fat cells and causes the skin to contract, which is what ignites the increase in collagen production. We spend about 45 minutes treating each individual area.

Seeing your FaceTite results

The FaceTite handpiece is designed for nonsurgical rejuvenation with virtually no scarring or stitches required. Luckily, this makes the recovery process even quicker. Following treatment, patients are asked to return home to rest for the remainder of the day with a compression garment. You can go back to your normal routine by the following day. It takes about three days for any swelling or discoloration to fade. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for two weeks after the treatment, but Dr. Sanchez will give you more specific information about what activities can be performed in his office.

When sun damage, genetics, or the aging process has taken a drastic toll on the skin, FaceTite nonsurgical skin tightening offers wonderful lasting results. While patients may notice some FaceTite results immediately after their therapy, gradual improvements will be seen for 3 – 8 weeks afterward. This is because part of the process involves stimulating new collagen growth in the skin. As long as you continue to take care of yourself through an active, healthy lifestyle and wear UV protective sunscreen every time you go outside, your results should last for 5 – 7 years or longer.

Minimally invasive skin tightening with Dr. Sanchez

Do you have concerns about loose facial skin? Every person will face skin laxity at some point in their lives due to aging and environmental factors. By helping patients produce new collagen, our plastic surgery clinic can greatly improve the way you look. Keep in mind that the results of FaceTite are not as dramatic or vivid as the results of surgery. However, FaceTite treatment can improve the fullness of the face as well as skin laxity in the jawline, cheeks, and other areas.
