Many people experience sagging skin in the face, neck and under the chin as they age. It’s a common consequence of getting older. But, just because it happens to just about everyone doesn’t mean you have to live with it.
Dr. Peterson offers patients a new way to fight sagging skin and fat deposits around the face, neck and areas under the chin with FaceTite. This innovative procedure tightens the skin and reduces facial fat volume to give you a more toned and youthful appearance.
FaceTite is an excellent alternative to more invasive and complex treatments, such as the surgical face-lift procedure. Call us today to learn more about FaceTite or schedule a consultation with Dr. Peterson to see how you can benefit from the FaceTite procedure.
What Causes Sagging Skin?
Saggy skin, jowls and a double chin can happen to everyone for a wide range of reasons, including:
- sudden weight loss
- prolonged sun exposure
These factors contribute to skin that is stretched out and sagging in the face, neck and chin region. This common sign of aging can make you look older than you actually are, which can, in turn, affect how you feel about yourself.
An Alternative to a Face-Lift
Do you want to tone and tighten your facial skin, and you’ve used all the potions, lotions and fads to get a more youthful look? If you do not see the results you want, but you’re not sure about or you’re not ready for the surgical face-lift procedure because of the downtime and cost associated with the process, FaceTite is an excellent alternative.
Note, we’re still big fans of the face-lift. It’s a popular procedure with many men and women in the United States. But there are indeed some things that people don’t love about it. The main thing that we hear from patients seeking an alternative to face-lift surgery is that it has a long recovery time, meaning you may have to miss work or other activities for a few weeks until you are fully healed.
We understand that the face-lift procedure isn’t for everyone, so we offer FaceTite to those who want to avoid surgery and longer recovery times.
What Is FaceTite?
FaceTite treatment is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure designed to help reduce the effects and appearance of sagging and wrinkling skin. FaceTite can target the face, neck and underneath the chin using radiofrequency energy.
Radiofrequency energy produces a gentle heat that can target and destroy fat cells. This heat can also cause the skin to contract and amp up your body’s collagen production.
Collagen can plump your skin, giving you a more youthful appearance. It can also help tighten loose skin.
Each FaceTite appointment takes about 45 minutes per treatment area, and you can go home right after your procedure.
Most patients see results soon after their first treatment. However, you will see your full results within three to six months.
FaceTite is minimally invasive, which means it requires very few incisions. And while it is minimally invasive, you should expect some bruising, pain or discomfort after your procedure. These effects resolve within a week or so after your treatment.
How Long Do the Results of FaceTite Last?
As we mentioned, FaceTite is an excellent anti-aging treatment for men and women with little to moderate amounts of loose skin or fat on their face, neck and chin areas. Individuals with excess skin or fat in those areas may want to consider a surgical neck-lift or face-lift.
The radiofrequency energy used in FaceTite reaches deeper into your tissue than nonsurgical treatments, resulting in a leaner and more toned look and silhouette for you. As a result, you’ll look younger, and you’ll be able to enjoy your results for as long as five years.
Why Should I Choose Dr. Peterson for My FaceTite Procedure?
As we said, FaceTite is an excellent minimally invasive alternative to a traditional face-lift in treating sagging skin. FaceTite can help restore your youthful appearance without long healing times or an invasive procedure. In addition, FaceTite can help tone and contour your face, and because of its collagen-boosting properties, you may also see improvements in your complexion.
