Minimally-Invasive Face and Neck Tightening
Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Rosa, CA, now offers the revolutionary Radio Frequency (RF) technology, FACETITE which tightens and shapes loose face and neck skin without surgery.
Dr. Greg Chernoff now offers a new minimally invasive alternative to a facelift, FaceTite. This exciting new facial skin tightening system delivers facial shaping results without surgery and no scars. FaceTite may be a good alternative for men and women who are not quite ready for a deep plane facelift or a mini-facelift but who are bothered by sagging and lax skin. FaceTite works safely in the sub-dermal plane to contract and contour skin tissue using advanced Radio Frequency (RF) technology.
FaceTite is similar to laser-assisted liposuction but uses a different type of energy to accurately and uniformly eliminate fat from the target areas of the face and neck. An added plus is that FaceTite also tightens skin! Peer-reviewed clinical studies report up to 36% tissue contraction after a FaceTite procedure resulting in a more contoured facial profile.
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite, manufactured by Inmode, is a new non-surgical facial contouring procedure that uses Radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) technology. This minimally invasive lipolysis treatment uses three-dimensional tissue remodeling for lifting and tightening of the skin, in addition to radiofrequency assisted lipolysis for fat melting. The volumetric heating creates fat coagulation to reduce fat without sagging skin.
Who is a Candidate for FaceTite and What Areas Can Be Treated?
FaceTite is a good option for men and women who are looking for a minimally invasive procedure that addresses a variety of face and neck renewal concerns, including:
- Sagging jowls and neck skin
- Submental fullness (fat) beneath the chin
- Marionette lines around the mouth
- Wrinkles and fine lines in the lower face
- Decreased collagen and elastin production
Based on your individual facial rejuvenation goals FaceTite may be performed with other non-surgical facial procedures.
For excess body fat and skin-tightening rejuvenation, ask Dr. Chernoff and his body-shaping specialists about BodyTite.
Prior to any treatment or procedure, Dr. Chernoff or one of our trained and certified Health Care Providers determine if you are a candidate, review the risk and benefits, and provide all possible treatment alternatives.
How is a FaceTite Procedure Performed?
The FaceTite procedure is an outpatient, in-office treatment. The targeted area(s) of the face and neck are numbed using local anesthesia. Dr. Chernoff inserts a probe through an incision in the skin at the edge of the jaw just below the ear. The incision is very small so there is no scarring.
The FaceTite device is slowly moved along the patient’s jawline where the precise application of Frequency (RF) energy (heat) is released resulting in liquification of excess fat and skin contraction. Uniform heat is applied throughout the procedure providing results that are smooth and even with no damage done to the skin.
The entire procedure lasts about one hour, and patients can return home immediately after the procedure with compression wrappings to minimize swelling during the first few weeks of recovery. Patients typically can resume normal activities after 48 hours.
FaceTite results are seen immediately, with further improvement after the swelling resolves. Because the RF energy stimulates collagen and elastin production, patients will see a more youthful appearance that continues to improve over the following 6 to 12 months.
