FaceTite Facelift Procedure
NuVista Plastic Surgery in Murray, Utah offers the FaceTite mini facelift procedure for those who want to look younger without invasive surgery. FaceTite is a modern, state-of-the-art procedure that defines the lower face, including the jaw border and neck, without surgical incisions. A FaceTite procedure also only costs a fraction of the price of a traditional facelift.
What is the FaceTite Procedure?
FaceTite effectively creates a dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck using radio-frequency energy to melt fat and tighten the skin. Before this technology existed, the surgical facelift was the only way to achieve these results. Two probes are connected to a handpiece and then Dr. Petersen makes a small opening so one probe glides over the skin while the other probe glides on top of the skin. These probes are then pinched together and radio-frequency energy flows between the tips as they glide back and forth. This system’s design allows a higher level of energy to be delivered to the areas that need to be tightened. The energy has two effects, the first is a direct tightening of the skin’s understructure and the second is to stimulate cells in order to manufacture collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
Why Choose FaceTite?
The FaceTite procedure is minimally invasive and doesn’t leave scarring. It’s less painful than excisional facelifts and the procedure will only take about an hour. Those with mild-to-moderate looseness along the lower face, jaw border or neck can experience dramatic results after the FaceTite facelift.
What is Recovery Like?
FaceTite is minimally-invasive and performed with local anesthesia, so patients can usually go home immediately. It’s easy for patients to resume an active lifestyle shortly after the procedure. Dr. Petersen might have you wear a compression garment for optimal results.
