FaceTite Vs. Face Lift: Choosing the Best Option

If you have lost your defined jawline, have a double chin, or moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, you may have considered having a face lift. Now, there are new technologies that give the results of a mini face lift without the recovery or downtime. One of those technologies is FaceTite, and it has many advantages over a face lift. 

The Process 

A face lift is a surgical procedure that requires an operating room and staff, which can be costly and time consuming. You will spend weeks recovering, endure a higher risk of infection or serious nerve damage even if a facelift is done on an outpatient basis. The surgeon will make incisions to remove excess fat and skin as well as reposition muscle and nerves. This can sometimes cause scarring and requires a recovery process. 

On the other hand, FaceTite only takes an hour or two to treat. The technology directs RFAL energy into the targeted area. FaceTite is superior to other technologies due to its excellent temperature control, and 100 percent of the energy goes into the target area. The doctor may aspirate fat through a needle under your jawline and chin. The procedure is done with needles and typically has no scarring and very little down time. It only takes one treatment to get optimal results. 

Recovery and Results 

With a face lift, you will have a recovery period while your face heals from the incisions that were made. You will not be able to wear makeup or continue your normal skincare routines until your face has healed. The bruising and swelling can last up to two weeks. With FaceTite, you don’t have any incisions and while you must wear a neck wrap for three days, you can otherwise move around and function well.
