How Long Can I Expect FaceTite™ Results to Last?
Many anti-aging products claim to reduce loose skin and wrinkles, but they don't always work as advertised. On the other hand, not everyone is ready for invasive cosmetic surgery to manage signs of aging. Now, procedures like FaceTite can provide dramatic anti-aging results without general anesthesia or a lengthy hospital stay.
FaceTite uses radiofrequency-guided lipolysis to melt away fat pockets and tighten loose skin around the eyes, mouth, chin, and neck regions. But how long will those results last? And how do you maintain these outcomes long-term?
Below, oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth D. Farr provides everything you need to know before undergoing FaceTite in Hilton Head or Okatie, SC. Call for an appointment at VIP Cosmetic Surgery and learn more about the FaceTite process.
Do you struggle with signs of aging?
Many people are unhappy with fat accumulation and sagging skin in the mid-to-lower face and neck. These areas are prone to wrinkling because the skin is thinner and less elastic in these regions. Additionally, the loss of collagen and elastin – two key skin-tightening proteins – causes loose skin to form. When options like plastic surgery are not ideal, FaceTite can be an excellent alternative.
How does FaceTite work?
FaceTite is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency-guided lipolysis to melt away unwanted fat pockets and tighten sagging tissue around the eyes, mouth, chin, and neck. Radiofrequency energy heats the underlying skin and causes fat cells to break down, which results in a slimmer appearance over time. The heat also helps stimulate new collagen production and tighter, firmer-looking skin.
What to expect during FaceTite
FaceTite is an outpatient procedure, but patients must attend a consultation with Dr. Farr at VIP Cosmetic Surgery before moving forward because treatment is not ideal for everyone. Our team members can assess your areas of concern and determine if FaceTite can achieve your anti-aging goals in Hilton Head or Okatie, SC.
Additionally, we may recommend combining FaceTite with additional cosmetic procedures for better and longer-lasting results. For example, many of our patients choose wrinkle relaxers or dermal fillers to create a refreshed appearance that looks natural.
What about FaceTite results?
FaceTite provides some immediate results, but greater improvements occur over the following 6 – 8 weeks as new collagen production occurs. Patients should plan to take a little time off from work, so their skin has time to heal.
FaceTite does not necessarily prevent future fat accumulation or skin laxity. That said, results should last for years if you follow post-procedure guidelines provided by VIP Cosmetic Surgery and continue to care for your skin at home.
Here are some tips for prolonging your FaceTite outcomes long-term:
- Limit sun exposure: UV damage leads to premature aging and wrinkles.
- Don’t smoke: Smoking damages skin cells and inhibits collagen production. If you smoke, now is the time to quit.
- Get enough sleep: Sleep gives your body a chance to repair damaged cells and promote new cell growth.
