Be on point and camera ready with a non-surgical, minimally invasive facial contouring treatment
Dallas Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Matthew J. Trovato M.D. offers a minimally invasive facial contouring, rejuvenation treatment for addressing wrinkles, stubborn fat, and sagging skin in the face and neck. Patients may prefer to take a long weekend to recover and enjoy shorter downtime with the Dallas FaceTite procedure. When you need to look your best and do not have the time for a lengthy recovery, FaceTite rejuvenation treatment is a viable option to reduce loose skin, troublesome fat and provide an overall contoured appearance.
FaceTite uses FDA-approved radiofrequency to pass through the skin and soft tissues to melt away fat in a process called RFAL or Radiofrequency-Assisted Lipolysis.
As the energy waves pass through the skin, they also tighten and stimulate collagen production for continued optimal results. Popular treatment areas include drooping brows, eye area, jowls, sunken cheeks, loose or sagging neck skin, and stubborn fat pockets in the lower face and neck.
Ideal patients are between 30 to 50 years old and have moderate skin laxity (sagging) but still retain good elasticity
FaceTite is an excellent alternative for patients not quite ready for a more invasive procedure. First, Dr. Trovato will assess your face for a good bone structure to support the tightened skin. Then, if your face needs more support, the doctor will recommend fillers or implants for the best results.
Several key benefits of FaceTite include a non-surgical procedure that enables you to gain transformative results without the downtime of surgery.
The precise technology of FaceTite affords patients to correct various age-related concerns in one convenient treatment and receive continued skin tightening improvement in the following months as the skin produces more collagen. As a next-generation RF treatment, FaceTite delivers heat and energy to the precisely targeted areas.
Your rejuvenation treatment is performed in-office as an outpatient procedure with no general anesthesia, or hospital stay required.
Your session takes about 90 minutes to two hours with local anesthesia and oral anti-anxiety sedative if needed. Your procedure prep begins with injections of high volumes of anesthetic are injected into your subcutaneous fat-this is the same preparation for liposuction. Once the anesthetic kicks in, you will not feel anything. A tiny incision that does not require stitches or leave a scar is made in your treatment area. Dr. Trovato then inserts a thin metal probe or cannula to heat the tissue below your skin’s surface. Meanwhile, an electrode is passed over the skin surface to maximize skin contraction and liquefy fat.
You can expect four to five days of recovery with minor bruising and swelling for at least a week. A compression garment and ice packs help to provide support and minimize swelling.
However, if you have an upcoming event, inform Dr. Trovato because there is a course of steroids that tapers the swelling response. So while your treatment areas will feel numb for several weeks, you should not be in any pain.
Within one week, you will see a noticeable improvement in your skin’s laxity.
Over the six weeks, 70 percent of your results are shown. The final tightening and contouring results continue to happen over the next three to four months, with improved enhancements up to one to five years. Maintain your results with diligent skincare, wear daily sunscreen, and refrain from smoking.
