The cost depends on the needs of the patient, but FaceTite generally runs 30-50 percent less than a traditional facelift. The procedure starts at $4,000 and depends upon the regions of the face, neck or jawline to be treated.
People generally go back to work within 10 days, but it can take up to two weeks to fully recover.
The FaceTite procedure takes approximately 60 minutes.
FaceTite is a minimally invasive skin-tightening, fat-melting, and wrinkle-reducing procedure. The procedure uses an internal, “under-the-skin” probe to directly heat the skin’s sub-dermis (under carpet), causing it to tighten and lift the skin. FaceTite remodels the tissue and changes the contours, leaving people with a younger-looking appearance.
FaceTite may be right for you if you are relatively healthy and unhappy with the sagging skin or contours on your face. If you have visible signs of aging on your brow, forehead, eyelids, cheeks, mouth, neck, or jawline and want to make a noticeable change without undergoing invasive facelift surgery, this procedure will help you achieve positive results.
Both men and women can get the FaceTite procedure. Good candidates have:
If you are not a good candidate for FaceTite, review SpaMedica’s nonsurgical procedures to find one that’s right for you.
FaceTite has numerous benefits. Dr. Mulholland or Dr Roskies will go over the benefits in full detail during your consultation.
Powerful Skin-Tightening Technique
FaceTite has proven to be more powerful than other minimally invasive skin-tightening techniques. Men and women can use this to tighten skin without undergoing invasive surgery.
People who want to tighten their face, jawline and neck skin without scars love FaceTite. Instead of making incisions, the surgeon makes tiny needle pricks. These pricks heal without scarring.
People can change their facial contours and reduce sagging without much downtime with FaceTite. Those who have busy schedules prefer this to a mini or full facelift. Patients are back to their normal lives in no time with this procedure.
Combines Well with Other Cosmetic Surgery Options
FaceTite can be used in conjunction with other nonsurgical facelift options. SpaMedica patients can get the full treatment when they undergo FaceTite and other options. Dr. Mulholland and Dr. Roskies consult with patients and recommend options that are right for them.
FaceTite, like every procedure, comes with a small chance of potential complications. The best thing patients can do to minimize the likelihood of complications is to select a trusted surgeon.
Redness and Swelling
Patients experience redness and swelling following the procedure. This is normal and will subside within seven days.
Tiny Needle Marks
People who undergo FaceTite will have tiny needle marks following surgery. The needle marks disappear within days.
While rare, there is a risk of nerve damage during FaceTite. The damage can occur when the thermal probe is passed under the skin. This complication is normally temporary.
Infection is very rare with the FaceTite procedure. SpaMedica’s sterile surgical suites and trained cosmetic surgeons make the chance of infection highly unlikely.
Dr. Mulholland is a leader in body-contouring, anti-aging, minimally invasive procedures. He has performed countless procedures and trained surgeons around the world, including Dr. Bray and Dr. Roskies in the science and art of FaceTite, BodyTite, AccuTite and Morpheus.
Dr. Mulholland and Dr. Roskies perform all FaceTite procedures at SpaMedica in Toronto. Before the procedure, the patient undergoes light sedation or local anesthesia. Then, the surgeon makes small access ports on the skin’s outer layers, typically under the earlobes and chin. The surgeon places a small electrode on the inner layer and outer layer of the skin. Once the electrodes are in place, they are passed under the skin to be tightened and the cosmetic surgeon uses the handheld FaceTite device to radiofrequency waves to heat the laxity and wrinkles. This heats up the area under the surface of the skin. There are intricate and automated controls to ensure the optimal temperature is maintained to ensure contraction but minimize thermal injury.
Patients should take the following steps to prepare for FaceTite:
Patients go home the same day following the procedure. While it’s normal to have some redness and swelling for a couple of days, the procedure is not painful. It takes 4-6 weeks to see nice results and 6-12 months for months the full outcome.
Day 1-6: Patients should take it easy for the first few days following the procedure. They will notice some discomfort and swelling during this time and need to wear a compression garment.
Week 1-2: After a few days, patients can reduce the amount of time they wear the garment and resume most normal activities.
Week 2: After two weeks, patients should be fully healed.
Get answers to some commonly asked FaceTite questions. Feel free to ask additional questions at your consultation.
FaceTite is not painful. Patients receive a general anesthetic during the procedure, and afterwards, the discomfort is minimal.
Patients who have mild to moderate signs of aging or loose skin can benefit from FaceTite. However, those who have significant issues looking for a permanent solution should consider a mini surgical facelift.
Patients can expect to enjoy the results of FaceTite for approximately five years.
While younger people can get FaceTite, it is best suited for those who are aged 40 and over.
Yes, it is very common for Dr. Mulholland and Dr Roksies to combine FaceTite with Suture Suspension Threadlifting to optimize a non-surgical, no scar face and necklift.
