FaceTite is an innovative medical device produced by InMode. The device rejuvenates your appearance with radiofrequency energy that tightens your skin and eliminates fat.
Dr. Zelden can treat any part of your face and neck. For example, the device can tighten jowls, get rid of a double chin, and refine your jawline.
FaceTite consists of two connected pieces. It has a narrow tube (cannula) that goes through the fat below your skin and an external piece that glides on top of your skin above the tube.
Here’s how the device works:
The cannula under your skin sends out radiofrequency (RF) energy. The energy heats the fat cells just enough to break them down. The amount of heat needed to permanently eliminate fat isn’t hot enough to damage the surrounding structures.
You don’t need to worry about ending up with loose skin when the fat disappears. As the RF energy leaves the cannula, it travels toward electrodes in the piece on the skin’s surface.
The controlled energy stream shrinks the existing collagen in your skin, producing an immediate tightening effect. The heat also activates new collagen production, producing stronger, tighter, more resilient over the next six months.
Dr. Zelken discusses what to expect and explains your anesthesia choices. Some patients need only a local anesthetic, while others also use an oral sedative to help them relax. Either way, you stay awake throughout your FaceTite procedure.
Though Dr. Zelken makes the incision in a place where it’s hidden, the cannula is so thin, and the cut is so small that scarring is virtually nonexistent. After inserting the cannula, Dr. Zelken gently and methodically moves the tube through the targeted area.
After your procedure, you’ll relax in the office for a while, then you can return to your usual activities. However, most people experience temporary swelling, which you can minimize with compression garments and ice.
Since you can’t predict the extent of the swelling, most people will take a day or two away from work and social activities while the area heals.
