Minimally Invasive Treatment Solution for a Sleeker Jawline & Tightening of the Neck
FaceTite is an exciting new technology that takes years off of your appearance without large incisions, scars or extensive downtime. Using this radiofrequency energy-based technology, Dr. Sean Maguire can eliminate unwanted fat and tighten loose skin around your jawline to get rid of a double chin, turkey neck or jowls. You can achieve a sleeker, slimmer jawline without resorting to surgical means.
If you want to look younger but you are not quite ready to go under the knife, FaceTite may be an appealing treatment solution for you. In the hands of an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Maguire, FaceTite delivers dramatic results with minimal risk, discomfort and downtime.
How Does FaceTite Work?
FaceTite uses radiofrequency energy to tighten loose skin while selectively removing fat and contouring the neck and jawline. The FaceTite handpiece consists of a double probe; one side passes underneath the skin and the other on top of the skin. By emitting radiofrequency energy, FaceTite heats the tissue, causing unwanted fat cells to liquify and the skin to contract. In the weeks and months following treatment, there is a dramatic improvement in the appearance of jowls, as well as the contour of the neck and jawline.
FaceTite can be used on other areas of the face with loose skin and deep wrinkles. It is suitable for all skin types, colors and textures.
What Happens During a FaceTite Treatment Session?
FaceTite is considerably less invasive and less painful than surgery. The minimally invasive procedure is performed in our office. Local anesthesia and sometimes sedation are administered to numb the area and relax you. Once you are numb, Dr. Maguire passes the FaceTite handpiece over your lower face and neck. The subdermal probe is inserted through small needle punctures and the surface electrode glides over the skin in the selected area. The application of radiofrequency energy is precise enough to heat the targeted tissue without causing the surrounding tissue to sustain any thermal injuries.
On average, it takes about 40 minutes to complete the treatment. FaceTite can be performed as a standalone treatment, or combined with another treatment such as Morpheus8.
Aftereffects of FaceTite
After a FaceTite treatment, the affected area of your face and neck may have some minor swelling, bruising or tenderness for up to a week. You will receive complete aftercare instructions, including precautions to protect the healing area. You may be asked to wear a light compression garment around your neck or chin to minimize swelling. You can resume work and the rest of your regular activities shortly after treatment.
FaceTite produces dramatic improvements without extensive downtime, pain or scars. Initial results can be seen almost immediately after surgery. The best results can be seen six to eight weeks after treatment, with the skin continuing to contract up to six months after the procedure.
