For those seeking an alternative to facelift surgery in Houston FaceTite is a non-surgical procedure that helps fight wrinkles and ward off the approaching signs of age. Science and experience has shown that age impacts everyone’s anatomy differently, including our faces. For many people, fine lines and crow’s feet around the mouth and eyes are the first signs of aging to appear.
For others, it might be a progressive loss of volume in the cheeks or sagging skin around the neck. Surgical facelifts have long been a staple of plastic surgery to address these changes effectively, but the necessary recovery time is undesirable to some patients. Now, developments in laser technology and aesthetic procedures make it possible for double board certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schusterman to deliver the same youthful results without surgery or the associated side effects and recovery time.
At our practice in Houston FaceTite is used because it delivers similar results to a surgical facelift, with the added benefit of being a minimally invasive procedure that does not require full sedation.
Because the procedure is minimally invasive, you may only need a topical anesthetic or mild sedative. FaceTite does not require incisions, there are no scars or necessary bandaging after treatment. Think of it as advanced facial contouring, making FaceTite an ideal for patients who don’t want to undergo major cosmetic surgery and are looking for a way to tighten and rejuvenate loose and sagging skin around their face and neck.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, FaceTite is a powerful procedure that delivers exceptional results for patients who do not want incisions or have to be sedated as only topical and oral agents are used. However, a facelift does remain the gold standard for dramatic results. To determine your best facial procedure, you need to ask yourself, what are your expectations and what results are you seeking?
Many patients are nervous about the invasiveness of a full facelift or other cosmetic procedures that require a lot of downtime, and FaceTite provides a simple solution with excellent results.
You should choose FaceTite because:
FaceTite uses radiofrequency energy to target fat deposits and sagging skin on the face and neck—the most problematic and common effects of aging.
The energy pulses stimulate your body to produce its own collagen, a natural protein that keeps connective tissue in the skin-tight. As we age, we produce less collagen and start to notice sagging and loose skin as those connections weaken; however, encouraging your body to generate more collagen can roll back the effects of time and gravity.
FaceTite is an outpatient procedure done in our Houston clinic, so you return home on the same day. Expect to be somewhat tender and swollen for about a week. Rather than bandages or other post-surgical requirements, FaceTite simply suggests that you wear a compression garment for a short duration, as the skin adjusts for the best results.
Enjoy your rejuvenated appearance, and be sure to actively wear sunscreen with a high SPF to prevent any sun damage and further aging to the face.
After the FaceTite procedure, Dr. Schusterman will apply a compression garment to help with any swelling. Ideally, it is recommended to take the weekend to rest before returning back to work. You will notice smoother and more contoured skin almost immediately.
You can expect to see improvements soon after completing FaceTite, with progressive changes in your skin's appearance and texture for six months to a year after treatment.
