What is FaceTite?

FaceTite is a procedure that uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to contour and tighten the skin. It provides results similar to a traditional facelift but without the extensive surgery, large scars, or long recovery time.


How Does It Work?

  • Radiofrequency Energy: FaceTite utilizes a small probe that delivers RF energy beneath the skin. The RF energy heats the underlying tissues, stimulating collagen production and causing the skin to contract and tighten.
  • Fat Reduction: The heat from the RF energy melts fat cells, which are then absorbed by the body, helping to reduce localized fat deposits.
  • Precision: The device allows for precise targeting of specific areas, making it ideal for treating delicate facial regions.



  • Minimally Invasive: The procedure involves only small incisions, typically hidden in natural skin folds.
  • Reduced Downtime: Compared to traditional facelift surgery, FaceTite has a much shorter recovery period.
  • Skin Tightening and Contouring: It addresses both skin laxity and fat reduction, providing a more youthful appearance.
  • Safety: The procedure is generally safe and well-tolerated, with fewer risks and side effects compared to more invasive surgeries.



  • Anesthesia: Local anesthesia or light sedation is used.
  • Duration: The procedure usually takes about 1-2 hours, depending on the areas treated.
  • Recovery: Patients may experience swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort for a few days. Most people can return to normal activities within a week.


Ideal Candidates

FaceTite is suitable for individuals who:

  • Have mild to moderate skin laxity.
  • Want to avoid more invasive surgical procedures.
  • Are looking for significant improvements in facial contouring and skin tightening with minimal downtime.
