FaceTite™ in Houston, TX

You don’t have to settle for seeing a reflection in the mirror that looks older than you feel. And you don’t have to undergo surgery to see astonishing results and a more youthful looking reflection. Dr. Joseph Perlman, board certified plastic surgeon at The Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, is located in Spring, TX. Our facility serves residents of Houston, including The Woodlands, Atascocita, Conroe, Pasadena, and Baytown areas. Our motto and our mission is to bring out the best in our patients

What is FaceTite™?

FaceTite™ is a totally non-surgical, sub-dermal procedure that uses radiofrequency to tighten loose skin around the face and jaw up to 36%. It’s able to deliver the same amazing results you get with a mini-facelift, but is minimally invasive. There is no surgery involved, so there are no stitches needed or residual scarring afterwards.

Some patients choose to combine liposuction in the neck or jowls area for even more contouring, resulting in a more youthful overall appearance.

What are the Benefits of FaceTite™?

There are many benefits to having the FaceTite™ procedure done. Some of the more common benefits include:

  • FDA-approved procedure and considered one of the safest facial procedures
  • Can be performed with local anesthesia
  • Fewer complications compared to plastic surgery using general anesthesia
  • Natural looking results
  • Can treat delicate skin areas without causing tissue damage
  • Results last up to five years
  • Procedure typically takes only 30-60 minutes
  • Visible results instantly, with continuing improvements seen over 3-8 weeks as new collagen is formed
  • Minimal downtime needed

How Does FaceTite™ Work?

FaceTite™ is done under local anesthesia so there is no patient discomfort. Radiofrequency energy is passed from the hand-held applicator through an internal electrode placed just beneath the skin. The RF energy can be specifically applied to exactly where it’s most needed.

The RF energy causes the tissue to heat up, which triggers the collagen to contract. As it heals, the tissue and facial skin tightens and lifts. The patient usually feels nothing during the procedure.

The FaceTite™ procedure takes between 30 and 60 minutes. Your skin will look better immediately following treatment, but the best results are typically seen after 2-6 weeks.

Is FaceTite™ Right for Me?

If you have loose, saggy skin or excessive wrinkling on your face or neck, you may be a good candidate for the FaceTite™ procedure. It may be the perfect solution if your face is aging faster than it should but you don’t want a traditional facelift. It can also be ideal if you’ve already had a facelift and just want to sustain your youthful look without having additional surgery.

During your initial consultation with the doctor, he’ll discuss your options with you and help you determine if the FaceTite™ treatment is the best choice for you, based on your medical history and your own unique aesthetic goals.

What Are the Side Effects of FaceTite™?

Some of the most common side effects of FaceTite™ include:

  • Swelling – especially on the second day after treatment; may last 7-10 days
  • Inflammation – usually resolving on its own within a few days
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Mild numbness has been reported, usually due to bruised nerves; resolves itself within 3-4 weeks
