FaceTite™ to Firm & Lift The Upper, Mid, & Lower Face
FaceTite™ is a revolutionary skin tightening device that can lift the upper, mid, and lower facial features to restore a youthful-looking appearance previously attainable only by facelift surgery.* For patients experiencing facial laxity due to aging, sun exposure, or environmental factors, FaceTite™ offers a minimally invasive solution that can achieve natural-looking results. FaceTite™ utilizes state-of-the-art radio frequency (RF) technology to target underlying facial tissues and achieve significant skin contraction, while also stimulating collagen production. This unique procedure can address various areas of concern in one treatment, including the brows, midface, chin, and neck.

How does FaceTite™ work?
During your FaceTite™ procedure, a tiny electrode is placed on the surface of your skin above the target area. Next, a tiny 1-2 millimeter incision is made and a specialized cannula is inserted beneath the skin. The innovative FaceTite™ machine delivers bipolar radio frequency energy to the treatment site using the electrode and cannula. Energy from the FaceTite™ machine results in the contraction of the initial layers of skin, as well as underlying tissues. Unlike past skin tightening techniques, FaceTite™ transmits bipolar energy that is carefully directed to the desired area, heating the site from the inside out and resulting in more precise treatment. FaceTite™ can also remove small amounts of excess fat, if necessary, to further enhance contours.
What areas can be treated with FaceTite™?
FaceTite™ can target the face and neck to deliver substantial results. Patients can lift the brows, tighten and raise the cheeks, improve jowls, and firm the chin with FaceTite™ treatment.
Who is a good candidate for FaceTite™?
FaceTite™ is considered an excellent alternative for patients who would like to achieve facial rejuvenation results without undergoing traditional facial surgery. Since FaceTite™ is minimally invasive, there is little downtime and recovery associated with this revolutionary skin tightening treatment. If you are looking to restore natural facial contours for a younger-looking appearance, then FaceTite™ may be an ideal solution. Dr. Levine will meet with you during your consultation at our NYC office to help determine if FaceTite™ treatment is right for you.
Can FaceTite™ treatment be combined with other procedures?
Absolutely. FaceTite™ can complement other facial rejuvenation techniques, including cosmetic injectables and facial fat grafting. Patients may also choose to combine FaceTite™ with body contouring methods, such as liposuction or BodyTite™, for comprehensive results.
What type of anesthesia will be used?
FaceTite™ is a minimally invasive procedure and is usually performed under local anesthesia. If you are combining FaceTite™ treatment with other forms of facial rejuvenation, body contouring, or liposuction, then a different type of anesthesia may be recommended, depending on the specifics of your treatment.
What should I expect during my FaceTite™ procedure?
Your FaceTite™ procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis at our NYC plastic surgery offices. An anesthetic is administered in preparation for your FaceTite™ treatment. Dr. Levine will carefully place the FaceTite™ electrode above the skin before making a small 1-2 millimeter incision at the treatment area. The tiny radio frequency cannula is then inserted below the surface layer. RF energy is guided using the electrode and cannula to evenly firm the treatment site. The length of your FaceTite™ treatment will ultimately depend on the specifics of your procedure.
What should I expect after my FaceTite™ procedure?
There may be some mild bruising or swelling present after undergoing FaceTite™ treatment. These side effects should subside within a few days of your procedure and patients can be offered medication to help alleviate symptoms. There is minimal downtime associated with FaceTite™ and patients can resume daily activities in the days following treatment.* Complete post-care instructions can be discussed during your in-office consultation.
What kind of results can I expect from FaceTite™?
You can expect long-lasting, natural-looking results after undergoing FaceTite™ treatment. Radio frequency skin tightening can firm the jawline, lift the brows, and raise the mid-face to restore firmer, younger-looking skin. Patients can begin to see skin tightening results with this minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure soon after the procedure is complete.
