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.

Dr. Dennis Hurwitz performs FaceTite™, an increasingly popular alternative to facelift surgery which offers cost-effective results with a shorter recovery time.*

What really makes FaceTite such a great option?

Minimally Invasive Treatment

What Is FaceTite?

FaceTite 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.*

Tighten Skin in as Little as 15 Minutes

  1. We will combine oral conscious sedation with a local anesthetic to ensure you are comfortable throughout your visit.
  2. Dr. Hurwitz will gently deliver radio-frequency energy using a delicate handheld device. This tool consists of an electrode that sits on top of the skin and cannula which is inserted beneath the skin through a tiny incision.
  3. He will glide the device back and forth across the treatment area to evenly distribute the thermal energy.
  4. Controlled heat will cause contractions through multiple layers of skin, tissues, and deeper fat deposits.

When Can Patients Expect Results?

While some patients begin to see effects in as little as six weeks, your final results may not be completely evident until 12 weeks following treatment. Depending on your unique needs, results may vary from mild to dramatic and can be achieved in as little as one FaceTite procedure.*

While FaceTite can offer many of the same results as a traditional facelift, the effects may not last as long. Future signs of aging can still occur. However, FaceTite results typically last several 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.

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