What is FaceTite?
A normal part of the human body's natural aging process includes decreased collagen and elastin in your skin. The loss of these nutrients can cause visible lines, creases, wrinkles, and loose skin on the jowls, chin, and neck. To fight these signs of aging, Clear Lake Dermatology offers FaceTite, a revolutionary, nonsurgical procedure that uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis to melt and dislodge cells, causing the skin to tighten and increase the production of collagen. This treatment can make your skin look tighter and reduce the appearance of wrinkles so that your face appears more youthful. Many patients are excited about FaceTite because it means they can achieve their desired results without undergoing surgery. We invite you to schedule an appointment at one of our offices in League City or Webster, TX to find out more about FaceTite and its benefits.

Who is an ideal Candidate?
FaceTite is often a great option for treating smaller, more delicate areas, like the lines that form around the mouth and below the eyes. It also works well on loose skin near the chin and neck. For patients who experience classic signs of aging, FaceTite can help tighten your skin by increasing the production of collagen. To undergo this treatment, you shouldn't be pregnant and should not have received cosmetic injectables within the preceding 6 – 8 months. During your consultation, we can help you determine whether this procedure is right for you.
This aesthetic treatment uses a minimally invasive technique that involves inserting a tiny cannula beneath your skin. At the beginning of your procedure, we use a local anesthetic to numb the area. Once we insert the cannula, internal and external thermometers control and monitor the temperature to make sure the heat remains at a comfortable level. The radiofrequency energy emitted by the FaceTite device is effective at eliminating fat cells and stimulating collagen production. Treatments last an average of 90 minutes. Patients should bring a friend or family member to escort them home approximately 30 minutes after the treatment is complete.
What to Expect
FaceTite is well tolerated and most patients experience little to no discomfort. During the first few days of recovery, there may be some soreness, but this can be treated with pain medication. We'll recommend that you return home and relax for the rest of the day while wearing a compression garment. You can resume most of your normal routine the following day. You will likely experience some discoloration or swelling, but these symptoms will subside in about three days. Following the procedure, we highly recommend avoiding strenuous exercise and activities for 1 – 2 weeks. Patients will normally see some visible results right after their FaceTite treatment. However, since the procedure involves stimulating collagen production, you'll notice gradual improvements over the course of the next 3 – 8 weeks. Your results will last longer if you maintain a healthy, stable weight with proper diet and exercise.
