About FaceTite

Part of the body's natural aging process includes the slowing of collagen and elastin production in the skin. The end result is more visible creases, wrinkles, and lines, as well as loose skin on the jowls, chin, and neck. To combat these symptoms of aging, Starkman Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery offers FaceTite. This innovative nonsurgical procedure, recommended by Dr. Sidney Starkman, uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis to heat up and dislodge cells, causing the skin to tighten and allowing collagen to be produced at a faster rate. It is possible to enjoy a tighter, more youthful facial appearance that has fewer wrinkles without dealing with the invasiveness and downtime associated with lifting surgeries. We encourage you to schedule a consultation at our Scottsdale, AZ practice to learn more about FaceTite and its benefits.

Ideal Candidates

FaceTite is a great choice for the many patients who fall inside of the “treatment gap” between surgical and non-therapies. While it is not a replacement for a surgical facelift, FaceTite can give results comparable to a mini-lift without any scars and minimal recovery downtime. Most patients have previously exhausted non-surgical options such as fillers but don’t want invasive surgery due to the recovery time or cost. You are a good candidate for this procedure if you're experiencing classic signs of aging and wish for an improvement in collagen production for tighter skin. In order to receive this treatment, you should not be pregnant or have had cosmetic injections performed within the last 6 – 8 months. A consultation with Dr. Starkman will better help you learn whether you qualify for this procedure.

Procedure Technique

This aesthetic treatment utilizes a minimally invasive technique that involves inserting a very small cannula beneath your skin while using local anesthesia. Once the cannula is placed, the temperature can be monitored and controlled via internal and external thermometers to make sure the heat remains at a comfortable level. The radiofrequency energy that the FaceTite device emits will be effective in minimizing fat cells and will also cause the skin to contract, stimulating an increase in collagen production. Sessions typically last around 45 minutes per treated area and done as an in-patient procedure. 

What to Expect

After a FaceTite procedure, you will be asked to return home to rest for the remainder of the day wearing a compression garment. You should be able to return to your daily routine by the next day. It may take 3-10 days for any redness or swelling to subside. Strenuous activities and exercises should still be avoided for approximately 1 – 2 weeks following the procedure. Patients will usually notice some visible results right after their FaceTite treatment. However, because the procedure involves stimulating the collagen process, you will see more gradual improvements for around 3 – 8 weeks afterward. Your results will be long-lasting if you keep a healthy weight through proper diet and exercise.

Frequently Asked Questions

What about a surgical facelift?
FaceTite is an outstanding option for the tightening and contouring of your face without surgery. However, if more drastic, lasting results are desired, a surgical facelift may be more fitting. After discussing your aesthetic goals and lifestyle, Dr. Starkman will help you decide which procedure is right for you. 

How many treatments will I need?
In many cases, one treatment with FaceTite provides the desired result. But in some cases, an additional or follow-up procedure is necessary. Dr. Starkman will include the recommended number of treatments in your customized treatment plan so you know what to expect before your first procedure.

How long will my results last?
Results following a FaceTite treatment are long-lasting. The patients who enjoy lasting results for years to come are diligent in living a healthy lifestyle with a clean diet and regular exercise. If you would like to touch-up your results or complement the outcome with other nonsurgical procedures, ask Dr. Starkman what he recommends during your consultation.
