Wrinkles and sagging skin can make you feel much older than you actually are. However, many patients do not want to undergo in-depth surgery to achieve facial rejuvenation.

Then our plastic surgeons are likely to perform FaceTite with MyEllevate, an increasingly popular alternative to facelift surgery which offers cost-effective results with a shorter recovery time.*

What really makes MyEllevate with FaceTite such a great option?

Minimally Invasive Treatment

What Is Facetite?

Facetite with MyEllevate improves deep lines and loose skin on the face and neck using strategically applied thermal energy – more specifically, radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL). As an effective substitute for a traditional facelift, this treatment can provide dramatic results.*

Impressive Patient Satisfaction Rates

Designed for Moderate Signs of Aging

Typically used to target the lower face and neck, FaceTite can improve the appearance of jowls, deep wrinkles, a double chin, and loose skin around the neck.*

  1. We will combine oral conscious sedation with a local anesthetic to ensure you are numb and comfortable throughout your procedure.
  2. We will gently deliver radiofrequency energy using a delicate handheld device. This handpiece consists of an receiving disc electrode that sits on top of the skin and an energy emitting cannula which is inserted beneath the skin through a tiny incision.
  3. We will move the device back and forth across the treatment area to evenly distribute the thermal energy.
  4. Controlled heat will safely cause contractions through multiple layers of skin, tissues, and deeper fat deposits.
  5. Over heating of fat and nerves can cause small nodules and temporary facial numbness and/or muscle weakness
  6. After applying energy, some patients are candidates for suture suspension of their neck muscle bands or prominent under jawline glands. 
  7. Liposuction is used at the completion of the procedure for final detail contouring.

When Can Patients Expect Results?

While FaceTite with MyEllevate can offer many of the same improvements as a traditional facelift, the effects may not last as long. In either case, future signs of aging still occur. FaceTite with MyEllevate results typically last over five years.

Recovering after FaceTite Treatment

Immediately following your procedure, you will be provided with a compression garment that can aid in your recovery and protect the treatment area. While you may experience some discomfort, it should be easily managed with over-the-counter medications.

Minimal bruising or numbness can also occur but this should dissipate within a few days. Patients can typically return to regular daily activities within two to ten days of their treatment. However, any strenuous exercise or movements should be avoided until cleared by the doctor. 

The Cost of FaceTite Can Vary

Your Goals Play a Role in Treatment Price

For most patients, treating signs of aging with FaceTite costs significantly less than a facelift. However, your final treatment cost can vary based on several factors.

Your surgeon can provide you with a personalized cost estimate during your FaceTite with MyEllevate consultation. He can discuss all the factors which affect your final price and help you make an educated decision about your treatment.
