Many of the first impressions we make are directly tied to our facial appearance. But when the early signs of aging begin to arise, it’s common to feel a bit insecure about our appearance. Over the course of time, we will develop wrinkles and sagging skin that are the result of the natural aging process, sun damage, genetics, and smoking. These changes can give us an older appearance, even when we feel youthful at heart. In order to help address these issues, the Choe Center in Virginia Beach, VA offers an innovative treatment known as FaceTite.
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is an advanced facial rejuvenation procedure that produces near-surgical results using small incisions. While injectable treatments like Botox provide temporary results that last for a few months, patients with more significant signs of aging often seek more extensive procedures like a facelift. The facelift, however, isn’t for everyone as it requires lengthy incisions and a long period of downtime.
FaceTite provides patients with an excellent option that lies in between these two facial rejuvenation techniques. FaceTite utilizes innovative radiofrequency waves along with smaller incisions to improve the skin’s contour and tightness. The device used provinces a gentle skin-tightening treatment that can target the most sensitive areas of the skin with the utmost precision
The FaceTite Procedure
Your FaceTite procedure will begin with the administration of local anesthesia along with mild sedation. Dr. Choe will proceed with making the incisions, through which he will apply a tumescent solution along with lidocaine to make the underlying tissues firmer and to help minimize bleeding. He will then apply the FaceTite handpiece to the treatment area in order to deliver the radiofrequency energy.
The device produces heat externally and internally. This allows it to improve the skin from the outside while melting fat on the inside then sometimes removed with liposuction depending on the patient. This process can be used to treat the:
- Double chin
- Saggy neck skin
What to Expect After Your FaceTite Treatment
The FaceTite procedure will take about one hour to complete depending on the area(s) treated. After the procedure is over, you will experience some redness, swelling, and bruising, but this is temporary and will subside. You will notice an immediate improvement in your facial contours that will continue to improve as you heal and your body begins to produce more collagen.
Patients undergoing FaceTite should take 4-5 days off work and 2 weeks off from physical activities to rest and recover. You can safely return to work after a week and physical activities after about two weeks. Dr. Choe will guide you throughout the entire treatment process and provide you with in-depth post-surgical instructions after the procedure.
