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.
"I was thoroughly impressed with Dr. Starkman and his staff, as well as the ambience of the entire place. The lobby was so welcoming and sparkling clean, with drinks and treats available for customers. Dr. Starkman personally injected my Botox for my 11 lines and was very kind and patient in explaining what he was going to do, not only before the injections but during as well. He and nurse Bailey were just amazing. I’ve had Botox a few other times, at other places, and never had the extremely pleasant experience I had at Starkman. I’ll definitely be going back for my maintenance and I highly recommend them to anyone for the services they provide. You’ll be in good hands!"- R.T. / Google / Feb 15, 2020
"I have always wanted a Rhinoplasty; spent a great deal of time doing my research on who I should let work on my face! As soon as I had a consultation with Dr. Starkman, I knew. It's him! He has such a calming presence about him and he works very methodically. He spent time with me, answered ALL of my questions and educated me about the whole process from start to finish. Dr. Starkman and his wonderful staff have exceeded my expectations! From the moment you step into this gorgeous office, you already know that "attention to detail" is the focal point. It can be scary trusting someone with your face, but all of my fear was replaced with trust, excitement, and gratitude. I'm about 3 weeks post-opp, and I am so surprised with how fast and easy the healing process has been. The best part? I still look like myself! Dr. Starkman created the nose I've always wanted and kept the face I've always had! Hands down, Dr. Starkman does brilliant work. He extends himself to his patients, he's a phone call away and he is always willing to answer any question or concern.I am so happy I made the choice to finally get this done, I'm so glad that Dr. Starkman was the one to do it! If you've been browsing around for a trustworthy, patient, and precise surgeon, look no further."- C.F. / Google / Jan 25, 2020

"I had an excellent experience with Dr. Starkman. He did a combination of Radiofrequency Microneedling and filler to reduce fine aging lines and deep wrinkles to give me a smoother complexion, thus, a younger look.

I would strongly recommend Dr. Starkman for any facial concerns!!"- N.E. / Google / Dec 30, 2019

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.
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.
