As we age the skin around our necks and lower parts of the face begins to sag. As it loses the laxity it once had, fine lines, wrinkles, and jowls become increasingly noticeable. An amazing way to treat these symptoms of aging, for a significantly longer time, is by getting a facelift but this operation can be rather intense. If you are looking to experience the benefits of a facelift, but do not want to endure the extensive recovery, a FaceTite™ procedure from Dr. Diktaban may be just the solution you are looking for. This procedure possesses the same age-reversing powers as a traditional facelift but is less invasive and much more comfortable.
What is a FaceTite™ Treatment Like?
FaceTite™ is an innovative cosmetic procedure that combines the two highly sought-after effects of fat removal and skin tightening to restore youth, luminosity, and contours back to the face. This treatment uses radiofrequency-assisted liposuction to tone the face creating a minimally invasive alternative to traditional facelift methods.
During a FaceTite procedure, your provider will start by applying a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, a small incision is made where a small device that delivers radiofrequency energy is inserted to liquefy the surrounding fat cells. As the RF energy continues to break down these fat cells, a small tube suctions them away and out of the body. Radiofrequency is also responsible for stimulating collagen fibers beneath the skin. Not only does this promote healing after treatment, but will continue to improve the firmness, smoothness, and appearance of the skin after the treatment has ended.
How is FaceTite™ Different from a Traditional Facelift?
A traditional facelift relies on the technique of lifting the skin, tissue, and muscles away from the face and pulling it back to achieve a taut appearance. In order to do this a large incision must be made and the tissue must be separated. While this surgery produces amazing, nearly permanent, results, it requires significant downtime and recovery. This is not always a comfortable procedure to recover from either.
FaceTite™ gives nearly the same results without the intensive recovery and you need very little downtime. Some people are able to return to work and their daily activities after only a couple of days. Aside from some slight swelling, tenderness, and bruising, there are very few significant side effects, when performed by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Diktaban.
