How Long Is The Downtime After FaceTite Treatment?

by | Jun 17, 2020

Have you been wondering how you could look younger without surgery? In the battle against the effects of aging, FaceTite™ may be a great alternative. As a normal part of the aging process, the body begins to slow down its collagen and elastin production. The result is more visible wrinkles, lines, creases, and loose skin in the neck or lower jowls. FaceTite is an exciting, revolutionary treatment that utilizes safe radiofrequency technology to improve mild to moderate skin laxity without invasive surgery.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Erick Sanchez performs this minimally invasive procedure at his state-of-the-facility in Baton Rouge, LA. He has helped women and men look years younger and feel more confident about their appearance at Sanchez Plastic Surgery. Read on to learn more about FaceTite treatment and what the recovery entails.

The ideal candidate for this skin tightening treatment

Since its introduction in 2016, FaceTite has been gaining popularity among women and men wanting a more rejuvenated appearance who are looking to forgo a more traditional method, such as a facelift. FaceTite uses radiofrequency energy to target loose skin and fat in the face and neck areas, offering a less invasive alternative in Baton Rouge, LA. By simultaneously tightening skin and melting fat, each FaceTite treatment is a minimally invasive facial contouring session. It can effectively counteract many of the common signs associated with aging skin, sometimes in a single session. Ideal candidates for this procedure are looking to improve collagen production to achieve tighter skin and are experiencing the early signs of aging. FaceTite is designed to address the following:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles in the lower face
  • Sagging or loose skin in the lower jowls and neck area
  • Submental fat, also known as a double chin
  • Creases around the mouth, also known as marionette lines

What happens during a FaceTite treatment?

Dr. Erick Sanchez offers this modern-day treatment for facial rejuvenation in Baton Rouge, LA. During a thorough one-on-one consultation at Sanchez Plastic Surgery, Dr. Sanchez will help determine if a patient qualifies for this type of procedure. FaceTite is a cosmetic technique that is a bladeless, usually scarless option that does not require surgery. It uses thermal energy to treat delicate skin areas without causing damage to surrounding tissues. The heat virtually melts and dislodges fat cells, which prompts the body to send collagen production into overdrive. It can, ultimately, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, tighten mild to moderate loose skin, and ignite an increase in collagen production.

What is the FaceTite downtime?

As a minimally invasive treatment, FaceTite does not require general anesthesia or a lengthy recovery period. However, patients will need someone to drive them home, following their procedure. During the FaceTite recovery, patients will experience soreness, bruising, swelling, numbness, and itchiness in the targeted areas. The most common side effects will drastically improve within the first week. Skin texture will feel uneven for at least 2 – 3 weeks as the skin contracts and adjusts during the healing process. Patients are generally able to resume regular activities within 48 hours, returning to work in 3 – 5 days. The minor incisions do not require stitches and heal quickly, typically leaving no noticeable scarring.

Noninvasive skin tightening results

The final results of a FaceTite treatment will continue to develop over the next six months, as elastin and collagen production provides continuous improvement in skin laxity. On average, patients can enjoy their new look for 3 – 5 years, especially if patients take care of their skin, wear daily sunscreen, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. FaceTite sessions can also be repeated when needed, as the effects of aging skin continue to develop. FaceTite can easily be combined with other nonsurgical options, like BOTOX®, dermal fillers, and other cosmetic procedures to give patients optimal results. Dr. Sanchez and his experienced team will provide private consultations and deliver the highest quality of care to ensure every person gets the results they deserve.

This modern-day technology can tighten your skin and does not require surgery, and usually has minimal downtime.
