Sagging skin and fatty tissue can impact the youthfulness of your face and neck. Imagine if you could remove fat and tighten the skin simultaneously without the invasive incisions required for a face or neck lift surgery! It is possible with FaceTite from InMode. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer minimally invasive facial contouring and skin tightening with FaceTite at our Tysons Corner, VA, and Chevy Chase, MD, locations in the Washington, D.C. metro area.
Minimally Invasive Facial Contouring with FaceTite
FaceTite by InMode uses the power of radiofrequency (RF) thermal energy to dissolve fat and remodel/tighten the skin. The heat from RF waves can liquify unwanted fat on the face, jawline, chin or neck while the skin is lifted and tightened. The thermal effect of RF energy triggers collagen production in the skin and tissues, firming the skin for a more youthful appearance.
Unlike more invasive plastic surgery procedures like neck lift, facelift or cheek lift surgeries, FaceTite facial contouring does not require large incisions. The procedure is performed through a tiny incision which allows the RF probe under the skin to deliver heat to the targeted fatty tissue. At the same time, a wand above the skin delivers RF energy to the skin to trigger the lifting and tightening response. Once the fat is liquified, it is suctioned out, and the facial tissue is contoured to achieve the desired results.
Face and Neck Rejuvenation
FaceTite facial contouring is a less invasive option for rejuvenating the face and neck areas. This procedure is ideal for those with sagging, heavy cheeks or jowls that need fat removal and skin tightening. FaceTite can also be used for a minimally invasive neck lift or double chin removal, sculpting the neck, chin and jawline.
Recovery and downtime for FaceTite are minimal in comparison to facial plastic surgery. Over the following weeks and months, the face or neck area treated will become firmer and more youthful as more collagen is produced in the skin and the swelling dissipates from the fat removal procedure.
