FaceTite is a minimally invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to dramatically tighten loose skin on the face and neck without any incisions, sutures, or significant downtime.
At present, Dr. Ahn is primarily using FaceTite for skin around the jawline and neck area.
FaceTite works by using radiofrequency to gently and safely heat fat and skin. By precisely heating the tissue to the optimal temperature, fat is melted and skin is tightened.
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia with a “relaxing pill” and takes approximately 1 ½ hours. Without any incisions or stitches, a 1.2 mm probe is inserted by Dr. Ahn through a small needle hole under the chin and next to the jowls. The probe gently heats the tissue and causes immediate tightening.
FaceTite was designed by a team of brilliant engineers who were pioneers in aesthetic rejuvenation devices such as IPL. Built in to the system are 5 separate safety mechanisms that prevent the skin from heating beyond the optimal temperature. In the hands of a skilled Facial Plastic Surgeon such as Dr. Ahn, the procedure is extremely safe.
Based on peer reviewed clinical trials, one can expect approximately 30-40% of the tightening of a traditional face/neck lift. No other non-surgical device provides this level of tightening.
Most patients recover fairly quickly from FaceTite, and usually return to work within approximately 5-7 days. Patients can expect to have some swelling, tenderness, and bruising.
No. Local and oral anesthesia are administered to our patients prior to a FaceTite treatment. They are able to go home immediately after their treatment.
Most patients notice results immediately after their treatment, but optimal results are noticed 6-12 weeks after the treatment.
The results of FaceTite last about 3-5 years, approximately half that of a face/neck lift.
The cost for a lower face and neck FaceTite treatment is $7000, approximately half that of a face/neck lift.
The first step is to come in and meet with Dr. Ahn for a consultation. During your appointment, Dr. Ahn will evaluate your skin and discuss the best treatment options for you.
