Here is some helpful information on this innovative new technique that Dr. Sanchez offers so you can decide if this is the next step for you.

Thinking about a facelift?

Do you feel like you look tired? Are you noticing wrinkles that won’t go away? Sagging, loose skin that is making you look older? A facelift can be a long-term solution to take away visible signs of aging from a person’s face and neck, but what if you are not ready for that type of cosmetic procedure? As we age, collagen and elastin production in our skin decreases leaving skin less “plump” or firm looking. Static wrinkles and fine lines begin to be permanent fixtures while facial sag becomes more noticeable. But today, both men and women have non-invasive options like FaceTite to rejuvenate their appearance, without the need for surgery or a long recovery.

What is FaceTite?

FaceTite is a nonsurgical option that uses radiofrequency technology to tighten and improve skin laxity in the neck and face. Recently approved in the United States (2016) as a less-invasive alternative to a facelift, this technique has been used for years in Europe and Canada. Patients can have a smoother, more youthful appearance plus quicker recovery with FaceTite unlike other surgical options. Even patients who have had a facelift use the FaceTite technique to maintain their results and keep those signs of aging from creeping back in.

How does it work?

This exciting new technology offered by Dr. Sanchez uses radiofrequency to dissolve and dislodge cells causing skin to become firmer while boosting collagen production. Using only a local anesthetic and topical numbing agent, microscopic incisions are strategically made in order to insert a tiny cannula instrument that will administer the radiofrequency-guided lipolysis treatment. This thermal treatment is a controlled heat technique that allows patients to be comfortable while the radiofrequency alters the underlying tissue in order to make the skin contract or “tighten”. Since the incisions are so small there is no need for sutures which means no visible scarring. Patients are only left with results they love.

Who is an ideal candidate for FaceTite?

Women, even men, who are experiencing early signs of aging can be a good candidate for this skin tightening procedure. These 45-minute sessions, per target area, are ideal for candidates seeking to have smoother, firmer skin while wanting to forgo a surgical procedure. If you have exhausted all other efforts with other facial treatments or injections in the last 6-8 months, then FaceTite could be a solution for you. As with any type of cosmetic procedure, patients should be in good health, not be pregnant, and during a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon like Dr. Sanchez, been considered a good candidate for this type of procedure.

The FaceTite recovery

This latest facial rejuvenation treatment is one of the safest non-invasive procedures available and doesn’t require general anesthesia. It allows patients to attain beautiful results while lessening the risks that come with more invasive or surgical procedures. FaceTite does cause some bruising and swelling but it will subside over the course of a week. Most of the swelling is due to the topical numbing agent used for the tiny incisions which will wear off. By choosing a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Sanchez, patients reduce their risk of any complications or other side effects with this technique. Outside of getting a ride home after the procedure and taking it easy for a few days, patients are able to enjoy their new results with little downtime.

The FaceTite results

When compared to other ultrasound technology or radiofrequency skin treatments, FaceTite seems to be a more effective way of tightening the skin. Patients also claim that FaceTite is less painful than other non-invasive treatments. Since this procedure stimulates collagen production, patients will notice a gradual improvement over a 4-8 week period. The end result can be enjoyed by patients for months even years, especially if patients take care of their skin, avoid sun exposure, and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
