Patients who wish to achieve a rejuvenated facial appearance without having to undergo facelift surgery may be candidates for a new procedure called FaceTite. The treatment uses radiofrequency energy to spur collagen production and tighten skin. It can also liquefy excess fatty tissue for easy removal, resulting in enhanced facial definition.
Dr. Bruce Hermann in Denton, TX, provides this advanced treatment to patients in Lewisville, Flower Mound, and surrounding communities. During a consultation, he can determine if this solution is the right way to give you the profile you want.
Benefits of FaceTite
The main benefit offered by FaceTite is the ability to attain a tighter, younger-looking face without having to undergo a facelift. Many of our patients seek the dramatic results of FaceTite as a means of addressing excess fat and tightening skin in the lower face, but it can also be used to enhance:
- Nasolabial folds
Patients who undergo this procedure can benefit from:
- Younger-looking skin
- A non-surgical procedure that delivers noticeable results
- A low risk of complications or side effects
- A relatively short recovery period (about five to 10 days)
- A fully customizable treatment
- Results that can last several years
By working with Dr. Hermann and the medical team at North Texas Breast & Plastic Surgery Center, patients can benefit from treatment steeped in advanced training. Dr. Hermann trained under world-renowned cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgeon Dennis C. Hammond at the Center for Breast and Body Contouring in Grand Rapids, Michigan. All surgeries performed at North Texas Breast & Plastic Surgery Center are performed by Dr. Hermann from start to finish.
Am I a Candidate?
During your consultation at our plastic surgery center, Dr. Hermann will examine your facial features while discussing your personal cosmetic goals before recommending FaceTite or a similar cosmetic procedure. As with any cosmetic procedure, candidates must be in good overall health. If you have significant skin laxity, you may be a better candidate for a facelift. As Dr. Hermann's patient, you can expect that he will only recommend procedures that can truly accomplish your goals and are safe for you to undergo.
Skin tightens by about 40 percent immediately after the procedure, with results continuing to improve over a period of three to six weeks.
A Look at the Procedure
The FaceTite procedure will be performed at our surgical center. One important benefit of FaceTite is that it can be performed using only local anesthesia. However, FaceTite can be performed using sedation so you can achieve deeper relaxation throughout treatment. Once you are comfortable and the treatment areas have been numbed, Dr. Hermann will make small incisions near the treatment areas. The incisions are so small that there will be virtually no visible scarring left behind. Next, a probe will be inserted through the small incisions to heat the underlying tissue, which results in skin tightening. Excess fat will be removed through the use of a cannula.
Skin tightens by about 40 percent immediately after the procedure, with results continuing to improve over a period of three to six weeks. You can expect to feel sore or tender for about five days, but most patients can return to work within about a week to 10 days.
