Turn Back the Hands of Time With FaceTite

Even if you wear sunscreen and moisturizer every day, at some point, the signs of facial aging are going to become unmistakable. For most people, those signs come in the form of facial wrinkles and sagging neck skin, sometimes unflatteringly referred to as a wattle.

Today, there are lots of options for reversing these signs of aging — some more effective than others. The key is figuring out what is the best choice for helping you achieve your own personal goals.

As a top-ranked plastic surgeon in Middletown and Jefferson Valley, New York, Mrudangi S. Thakur, MD, offers state-of-the-art FaceTite treatments to help patients restore a more youthful appearance to their face and neck. FaceTite’s proprietary system targets the underlying structure of skin for great results without the downsides of facelift surgery. Here’s how it can help you.

How FaceTite works

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that about 7 million minimally invasive skin-tightening and fat-removal treatments are performed each year in the United States. What makes FaceTite different from other skin tightening treatments is its unique delivery system. 

FaceTite uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to melt fatty tissue and promote collagen development while gently tightening the skin. But unlike other RF systems that deliver energy through the skin’s surface, FaceTite uses a special handheld device to deliver the energy to the deeper layers of skin tissue, where collagen is produced.

To access those deeper layers of tissue, FaceTite uses very tiny incisions — so tiny that they don’t require any sutures to close. This ensures the RF energy is focused precisely on the target treatment area for better results that last longer than transdermal (through the skin) RF systems. 

The FaceTite procedure

FaceTite is performed right in the office using oral sedation and local anesthesia to numb the tissue in the treatment zone. Dr. Thakur makes a small incision at the treatment area and inserts a very thin tube called a cannula.

The FaceTite device is designed to emit RF energy directly to the subdermal tissues, helping to eliminate fat, tighten skin, and promote collagen production. Most treatments take about an hour.

Following treatment, Dr. Thakur covers your incision with a small bandage. Recovery takes about 1-3 days for most people. You may notice some swelling and slight bruising, but these effects quickly resolve.

The best part: You can see initial results right after healing, and results continue to improve for up to 12 months as the collagen remodeling process kicks in, restoring firmer, sleeker contours in your face and neck.

Restore your face’s youthful appearance

There may not be a fountain of youth, but FaceTite can help you turn back the hands of time on facial and neck aging.
