What Are the Benefits of FaceTite®?
FaceTite® addresses the lower face and neck to target different aging issues. These treatments can reduce wrinkles, tighten lax skin, and eliminate submental fullness.
FaceTite® provides several benefits comparable to facelift surgery, including:
- A firmer appearance in the face and neck
- Better definition along the jawline
- A reduction or elimination of a double chin
- Scarless facial enhancement
If you desire these aesthetic improvements, and are a qualifying candidate, FaceTite® may be the solution you seek.
Am I a Candidate for FaceTite®?
FaceTite® is appropriate for individuals who are not ready for a full facelift and provides a solution for effectively treating age-related facial flaws.
FaceTite® is best when used to treat mild to moderate or early signs of aging, including:
- Loose skin on the face and neck
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sagging jowls
- Submental fat (full or double chin)
While facelift surgery provides long-lasting results, the aging process will continue. FaceTite® can help maintain facelift results indefinitely with occasional treatments.
Candidates for FaceTite® should not smoke or use tobacco products.
What Is Discussed During My FaceTite® Consultation?
All patients must undergo a consultation with Dr. Agullo to determine if they are qualifying candidates for the FaceTite® treatment.
Dr. Agullo will listen carefully to your skin concerns and goals, review your medical history, ensure that you are in good health, and evaluate your skin to determine if FaceTite® is the best technique to meet your needs.
At Agullo Plastic Surgery, tailored care begins with a full consultation to discuss the goals and options available.
How Should I Prepare for My FaceTite® Procedure?
- If you smoke or use nicotine products, you will have to quit weeks before the procedure.
- Before your FaceTite® procedure, you will be instructed to stop using aspirin, NSAIDs, fish oil, Vitamin E, and other medicines or herbal supplements that can thin the blood.
- Men should shave.
- Remove all jewelry worn from the neck up.
- Ensure that you have and bring your paperwork and identification.
What Are Your Concerns?
Are There any Incisions?
Tiny one millimeter incisions (the size of a needle) are made behind the ears and under the chin. These are not visible.
Is FaceTite® Painful?
The use of a local anesthetic will keep you comfortable during your FaceTite® session.
Will FaceTite® Leave Scars?
FaceTite® does not cause any visible scarring.
What Does FaceTite® Cost?
The cost of your FaceTite® procedure depends on the extent of treatment necessary to achieve your ideal results.
While the exact cost of your procedure cannot be determined until your consultation, FaceTite® usually ranges from $5,000 to $7,000.
Dr. Agullo’s consultation fee of $100 will be applied to the cost of your treatment.
All fees must be paid in full prior to treatment.
What Can I Expect for My FaceTite® Recovery?
You may drive yourself home after the procedure unless a sedative has been requested for anxiety during the FaceTite® session.
You may experience some discomfort for a few days after the procedure, but this will quickly subside for a minimal recovery period.
Patients typically return to work and light duty activities in five to seven days.
Most swelling and bruising disappears in two to three weeks, although this can be concealed with makeup starting the day after your procedure. We recommend not returning to strenuous exercise for a month, as it can increase the length of swelling.
When Will I See My FaceTite® Results?
You may have some initial swelling following your procedure, but tissue tightening should be immediately noticeable once the swelling subsides. The reduction of submental fat should occur over the next several weeks. Results continue to improve for the next six months.
