Can FaceTite Be Used With Other Aesthetic Treatments?
FaceTite is a nonsurgical treatment that uses radiofrequency-guided lipolysis to remove unwanted fat and tighten the skin. This procedure can improve your appearance and help you look years younger without invasive plastic surgery.
FaceTite can be used in hard-to-reach areas like beneath the eyes, around the mouth, and the chin and neck. But what if you want more comprehensive results—can you combine FaceTite with other treatments at VIP Cosmetic Surgery? The answer is yes!
Below, board-certified ophthalmologist and oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth D. Farr explores the potential benefits of combining FaceTite with cosmetic injections like wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers in Hilton Head and Okatie, SC. Call now for a FaceTite consultation and find out more.
How does FaceTite work?
FaceTite involves placing a small cannula underneath the skin that emits radiofrequency (RF) energy. This technology heats up the tissue and breaks down fat cells, which are then naturally removed through the body. At the same time, the heat causes your skin to contract by prompting an increase in collagen production.
FaceTite is ideal for people with isolated areas of fat and loose skin around the face and neckline. This innovative treatment can be used in delicate areas and is a good alternative to invasive procedures like liposuction. VIP Cosmetic Surgery patients who have undergone FaceTite often report excellent results and are highly satisfied with their appearance.
What treatments can be combined with FaceTite?
FaceTite can be combined with other cosmetic treatments for comprehensive results that last. For example, dermal fillers smooth out wrinkles by replenishing missing volume beneath the skin. These injectable products address hollow areas while also adding lift. This is especially helpful in the mid-to-lower face.
Another option is wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX or Dysport. These treatments in Hilton Head and Okatie, SC improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles—those that form when making facial expressions like frowning or laughing. Common areas to treat include the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes.
Can I get cosmetic injections before FaceTite?
Dr. Farr can create a custom timeline for cosmetic injections based on the results you want to achieve. In general, FaceTite is performed first so the skin is tighter and can better benefit from additional treatments. Injectables may be recommended 1 – 2 days afterward or up to a week later. However, everyone is different, so be ready to discuss these options during your consultation at VIP Cosmetic Surgery.
When to expect refreshed results
Patients will undergo a short recovery period after FaceTite. Results are usually visible within a few weeks as the fat melts away and the skin begins to tighten. The final outcomes may take 3 – 8 weeks to fully develop as your skin continues to heal and produce more collagen.
If you combine FaceTite with injectables, results vary depending on the type of dermal filler or wrinkle relaxer used. For example, BOTOX and Dysport take 2 – 3 days to take effect, while dermal fillers may provide immediate results.
