Learn more about FaceTite
FaceTite is a minimally-invasive contouring procedure for the face and body. Often, FaceTite yields results that are similar to a facelift without surgery. Commonly, FaceTite is used to tighten loose skin such as jowls that are the result of aging.
FaceTite uses targeted radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin. Dr. Shienbaum will perform the procedure using a local anesthetic, so you won’t feel any pain. The FaceTite procedure is performed with a small, hand-held applicator that passes energy through a cannula that is inserted below the skin through small pin-pricks. At the same time, part of the applicator remains above your skin to regulate the temperature. The technology used is the same radiofrequency used in MRIs and Thermage.
