One of the things that makes me good at my job is that I really listen to what my patients want. And what they want are effective non-surgical procedures to rejuvenate the face and neck. Everyone’s life is busy, and no one wants to devote unnecessary time to recovery. Furthermore, some patients needs have moved beyond just injectables, for example, but are not quite to the point of a surgical intervention like a facelift. This is why I am happy to offer my patients a middle ground. FaceTite combined with MyEllevate® can deliver superior non-surgical facial rejuvenation with negligible downtime. It is proving to be a total win-win for my patients.
FaceTite to Re-Contour Skin & Tissues
I pride myself on being an early adopter of new and exciting technologies. But just because something is new does not mean that it is effective. This is why I carefully vet every new technology, and only keep the ones that deliver measurable results. FaceTite is part of a platform that has been around for awhile. In this micro-invasive procedure, I make a couple of pinhole incisions in the treatment area under local anesthesia. I then insert a very skinny probe under the skin that looks somewhat like a tuning fork. One tine of the fork glides on top of your skin, one below.
The device uses RFAL™, or radiofrequency assisted lipolysis, which travels between the two tines of the probe, heating your skin and tissues from both above and below. This causes the collagen to contract, delivering immediately tighter skin. It also targets and destroys excess fat cells in the treatment area.
MyEllevate® Lifts Skin without Incisions
While FaceTite can be a great stand-alone procedure, I will often combine it with MyEllevate® for truly extraordinary results. Sagging skin in the lower face and neck is a problem for so many of my patients, both men and women. Combining FaceTite and MyEllevate® allows me to re-contour your lower face, jawline and neck without surgery.
MyEllevate® is a suture suspension technique that uses an ICLED® light guided suture system. It allows me to easily weave a permanent suture under the skin of the neck in order to:
- Improve the look of your jawline
- Lift the skin of neck
- Help reduce the appearance of jowling
Benefits of FaceTite & MyEllevate®
The major benefit of the FaceTite/MyEllevate® combination is that it delivers serious face and neck rejuvenation. Further benefits include:
- Fast, whole procedure only takes about an hour
- Performed under local anesthesia in the office
- Downtime is basically overnight
You can expect some swelling after your procedure, but this dissipates quickly. And one of the nicest things about this 1-2 punch is that you will see your results immediately. My patients love the fact that they can get all the benefits of face and neck rejuvenation without a big operation. It’s truly been a game-changer.
