The holy grail of non-surgical techniques for the face is one that can significantly tighten loose skin, especially around the jowls. But it has never existed, until now. FaceTite is a brand new, cutting edge technology that uses RFAL or Radio Frequency Assisted Lipolysis to tighten the skin anywhere on your face and neck. The results are on par with a mini-facelift, but without the surgery, stitches or potential scarring. Now, how’s that for awe inspiring?
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bruce Van Natta prides himself on being at the forefront of new innovations and technologies. Having long offered his Indianapolis patients the Thermi line, a generation one RF tightening device, he is thrilled to now offer them the InMode FaceTite and BodyTite, a truly innovative generation two RF tightening device. Both have allowed him to provide his patients a new layer of service, something that delivers surgical results with little to no down time and minimal incisions.
Figuring out the right procedure for your needs is something that is practically impossible to do without a medical degree. It takes a trained eye to be able to see what will and will not work with your individual anatomy. During your consultation, Dr. Van Natta will listen closely to what is bothering you about your face and/or neck. Next, he will perform a thorough physical exam to assess your skin tone, texture and elasticity or “bounce back.” Then, together, you will come up with the treatment plan that best suits your anatomy, goals and lifestyle.
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is a revolutionary new minimally invasive procedure for rejuvenating your face and neck. While it can be performed under local anesthesia with nitrous oxide, it’s often done in the OR in conjunction with other procedures. The treatment takes about 40 minutes. Dr. Van Natta will insert a probe through two small incisions in your treatment area. The RF energy passes between these two points, heating both the top layer or dermis as well as the underlying connective tissue. The end result is a visibly smoother, tighter and more lifted contour.
FaceTite is ideal for treating any area above the shoulders including:
Benefits of FaceTite
Completely safe thanks to a built in safeguard that prevents the machine from either overheating or burning your skin, the biggest benefit of FaceTite is that it delivers surgical results without surgery. Other benefits include:
- fast – treatment runs about 40 minutes
- no downtime
- nearly invisible scars at probe insertion points
- only takes one treatment
- visible results in just 3-8 weeks
Your FaceTite recovery is going to depend, in large part, on the size of your treatment area as well as how your individual body heals. In general, most patients will experience some post op swelling. This typically resolves within a few days although some swelling may be perceptible for a couple of weeks. Patients can return to their daily life as soon as they’d like as there is no real downtime associated with FaceTite. Most patients will see a tightening in the treatment area almost immediately with continued improvement over the next 3-8 weeks. So, if you are looking to take some years off your face, but don’t want to deal with the hassle of surgery, FaceTite was made for you.
