FaceTite Procedure for Patients in Utah
At NuVista Plastic Surgery in Murray, we offer the FaceTite mini facelift for people who want to look younger and healthier without painful surgery. This is an innovative, safe procedure designed to define the lower face, jaw border and neck without any surgical incisions. Another benefit of the FaceTite mini facelift is that it is significantly less expensive than a normal facelift.
What is FaceTite?
The FaceTite procedure uses radio-frequency energy to melt fat and tighten the skin, improving skin wrinkles and looseness on the face and the neck. Before this existed, the surgical facelift was the only way to achieve noticeable results. In the procedure, two probes are connected to the handpiece and Dr. Petersen makes a small opening. One probe glides over the skin while the other probe glides on top of it. The probes are then pinched together so radio-frequency energy flows between the tips as they glide back and forth. The system’s design permits a high level of energy to be delivered to the areas that need tightening. The energy has two effects, the first is a direct tightening of skin’s understructure and the second is a stimulation of cells to manufacture collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
Why Choose the FaceTite Procedure?
The FaceTite facelift is minimally invasive and will not leave scarring. It’s also less painful than excisional facelifts and the procedure only takes about an hour. Those who have mild-to-moderate looseness along their lower face, jaw border or neck may experience dramatic results after FaceTite.
How is the Recovery?
As FaceTite is minimally invasive and performed under local anesthesia, patients can normally go home immediately. It is usually easy for patients to resume their active lifestyle shortly after the procedure. However, Dr. Petersen may have you wear a compression garment for optimal results.
