FaceTite in Augusta, GA
FaceTite is a component of the revolutionary BodyTite contouring system, which uses radiofrequency energy to tighten skin tissue and assist in fat removal. At Southeastern Aesthetic Surgery, we are proud to offer FaceTite and other body contouring solutions to the men and women in Augusta, Evans and Columbia County, GA.
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is a minimally-invasive face and body contouring treatment powered by the BodyTite system. BodyTite uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to assist with skin tightening and liposuction treatments. This combination is known as radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL). RFAL is becoming the preferred liposuction technology because it can be performed with local anesthesia, and it offers similar results to traditional liposuction but with less scarring and downtime. FaceTite is a treatment specialized for smaller areas of the body, such as the face and neck.
How Much Do FaceTite Treatments Cost?
The cost of your FaceTite treatment will depend on several factors. At your consultation, Dr. Austin, Dr. Isakson, and Dr. Medina will listen to your concerns and create a personalized treatment plan. From here, our experienced staff will be able to provide you with an estimated cost of your treatment. To ensure that patients are able to afford treatment, we provide several financing options, including CareCredit® and PatientFi - Click here to apply.
How Does FaceTite Work?
FaceTite works using RFAL technology delivered through a handheld device. The FaceTite device has two components. First is a probe-like device in the shape of a needle. This component is placed beneath the skin’s surface, where it emits RF energy to heat tissue and melt fat cells. The second is an RF emitter, which is placed on top of the skin’s surface where it emits RF energy to the outer layers of skin tissue. Combined, the FaceTite system can heat many layers of the skin to trigger skin tightening and collagen production while also targeting fat cells for liposuction techniques.
What are the FaceTite Benefits?
The primary benefit of FaceTite is that it can deliver dramatic face and neck contouring results with minimally invasive strategies. Additional benefits include:
- Eliminate stubborn fat
- Tighten skin & reduce wrinkles
- Limited downtime
- No visible scarring
What is the FaceTite Treatment Like?
FaceTite treatments are performed with the aid of local anesthesia. You will remain awake for the treatment, but the treatment area will be numbed to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. Then, the FaceTite device will be used to deliver RF energy to the treatment areas and remove unwanted fat as needed. This is done by inserting a needle-like probe beneath the skin, while the other part of the device will emit RF energy from above the skin’s surface. The device will be maneuvered beneath the skin to target the necessary areas and produce the desired results.
Is There Any Downtime After FaceTite Treatments?
FaceTite requires very little downtime compared to traditional facial contouring procedures. Generally, patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. However, you can expect some swelling and bruising that will last for a few days, so you may choose to take some time away from social events while the skin heals.
What Results Can I Expect from FaceTite?
While you will notice some initial improvements in the skin immediately after FaceTite, the final results will become fully visible in 3 to 6 months after your FaceTite treatment. These results are clinically proven to last up to 5 years.
If you are interested in improving lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and stubborn fat in the face and neck, FaceTite can help you achieve dramatic results without the scarring and downtime that is associated with traditional surgeries.
