Do you want to achieve some of the benefits of a facelift but are afraid of the long recovery time and potential complications that come with surgery? If so, you may be an ideal candidate for FaceTite™. FaceTite™ is a non-surgical facelift alternative that uses minimally invasive radio-frequency energy to tighten skin and improve the appearance of the face. Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery, led by Dr. Mark M. Hamilton, M.D., F.A.C.S., provides FaceTite™ non-surgical facelifts to patients in Carmel, Greenwood, and the surrounding Indianapolis, IN communities.
What is FaceTite™?
No matter how many preventative measures you use, life, in one form or another, takes its toll on your appearance. Luckily, there are many options to help reverse these changes without having surgery. FaceTite™ is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to contour the face and neck. It works by using radio-frequency (RF) energy to coagulate fat, tighten the skin, and stimulate collagen production. This leads to a tighter neck and jaw line and a more refreshed appearance without invasive surgery.
Benefits of FaceTite™
- Low potential risk
- Minimally invasive
- Significantly less downtime than a traditional facelift
- Immediate, long-lasting results
- Non-surgical, so there’s no visible scarring
- Effectively treats a variety of areas on the face and neck
What is the Procedure for FaceTite™?
Every FaceTite™ procedure is performed personally by Dr. Mark M. Hamilton at our office in Carmel, IN. Before the procedure, you will be given a choice of different sedatives to help prevent any pain and anxiety during the treatment. General anesthesia is an option for patients who would like to be completely sedated. Some patients opt for PRO-NOX (nitrous oxide and oxygen) instead, which is similar to laughing gas and allows patients to relax without going under full anesthesia.
During the FaceTite™ procedure, Dr. Hamilton will insert a small tube, called a cannula, under the skin so that he can effectively deliver the RF energy. This also allows the RF energy to be targeted to very specific areas, heating them without damaging the surrounding tissue. Thanks to the small size of the cannula, you will have no visible scarring. The procedure lasts approximately 45 minutes and can be done in only one session. Benefits can be seen immediately, but it will take between 6 and 12 months before you see optimal results.
After the procedure, you should expect to see some redness, swelling, and potentially bruising on your face. However, these side effects are temporary.
Who is a Candidate for FaceTite™?
Good candidates for FaceTite™ are patients who want to experience benefits similar to but not as dramatic as those from a facelift. They are in good general health, maintain a stable diet and exercise plan, and are close to their desired appearance. To find out whether you are a candidate for FaceTite™, you should schedule a consultation with your physician.
How much does FaceTite™ cost?
Every procedure at Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery is completely customized to the patient.
