How Long Do The Results From FACEtite Last?

by | Sep 14, 2020 | Face, Non-Surgical Options

We know that sun exposure, genetic factors, and the natural aging process have negative effects on our skin, especially on our neck, jowl, and face skin. As the natural aging process takes place, our facial skin and neck begin to sag, leading to pockets of fat and loose skin. The plastic surgeon community offers solutions, but not all patients are ready to undergo surgical procedures.

Recently, many patients throughout the country who want smoother, more attractive skin, have begun to discover the astonishing effects of a new type of procedure: FACEtite! Since the FDA authorized plastic surgeons to perform this procedure in 2016, FACEtite has helped patients return to their stunning looks without undergoing a surgical procedure and without taking any significant downtime. Here at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery, we recommend this procedure to our patients both for its efficiency and its long-lasting results. Are you ready to return to younger and smoother skin? Schedule a free consultation with Dr. Vinyard and find out more about the long-lasting results delivered by FACEtite!

What is a FACEtite?

FACEtite is an advanced, non-surgical contouring system which uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to target pockets of fat and sensitive neck and face areas with saggy skin, including areas around the mouth, the cheeks, and other areas with deep lines and loose skin. By inserting a tiny probe capped off with a plastic tip, FACEtite melts away unwanted pockets of fat and tightens the skin, leaving it much softer and even more beautiful than before.

How does the procedure take place?

The plastic surgeon inserts a probe through a small incision and, using an external electrode, generates a thermal field covering both the outer and inner skin layers for extensive treatment. During the procedure, the plastic surgeon will make use of two thermoregulatory centers. These thermoregulatory centers provide accurate information regarding the skin’s internal and external temperatures to prevent any damage to the skin and the muscle tissue. As the surgeon slowly moves the devices along the jawline, the heat liquefies pockets of fat and stimulates the production of new collagen and the elastin cells necessary for smoother skin.

What are the key benefits of FACEtite?

The plastic surgeon community was quick to realize that FACEtite had the potential to be the best and safest treatment available for patients who wanted to maximize results with little downtime. Since being approved for cosmetic use in 2016, plastic surgeons have used this procedure to address many natural aging symptoms, providing stunning results when dealing with sagging jowls and neck skin, wrinkles and fine lines in the lower face, marionette lines around the mouth, and submental fullness beneath the chin.

The FACEtite system implements modern technology and several safeguards to ensure that the procedure is a success, minimizing potential risks for the patient. The plastic surgeon monitors the patient’s skin temperature at all times to avoid skin and muscle tissue burns. Compared to other procedures, FACEtite provides superior safety and control for a more pleasant experience.

During your free consultation, Dr. Vinyard will review your medical history and assess your skin color and condition. Many of the other skin treatments for facial skin rejuvenation do not enjoy the same degree of effectiveness when treating patients with darker skin. Our medical team recommends FACEtite to all of our patients since it delivers the expected results regardless of skin color and texture.

Because of this minimally-invasive procedure, patients don’t have to worry about stitches or scarring, and can return to their normal activities the moment that they leave the operating room, feeling younger and more confident!

There are so many advantages to FACEtite!


Am I an ideal candidate for a FACEtite procedure?

FACEtite is a procedure that applies to a wide range of patients, based on age and skin condition. Our medical staff offers patients in-person evaluations. Ideal candidates for this procedure are in their mid-30 or 40’s and have elastic skin tissue. Additionally, FACEtite could be beneficial to patients who underwent other surgical procedures, such as facelift, and are interested in maintaining their results without additional invasive procedures.

How long do the results last?

There is no unanimity among the plastic surgeons concerning FACEtite results. For example, the FDA has approved FACEtite results for approximately one year. However, this is not to say that your stunning results will disappear after one year. FACEtite does not depend solely on the procedure but on many other factors, such as your environment, genetics, diet, etc.

Your skin will return to the natural aging process anywhere between 3 to 5 years after the procedure, which is an impressive result for a minimally-invasive procedure. Patients who follow a healthy diet and lifestyle can expect the results to last between 5 to 7 years. Here at VIPS, we offer our patients a set of recommendations to guarantee longevity!

Patients can now enjoy smoother, glowing skin, without worrying about extensive downtime, general anesthesia, or scarring. It’s time for you to once again enjoy your appearance every time you pass in front of a mirror!
