Facelift involves highly invasive surgical procedures, whereas FaceTite involves a less invasive procedure for achieving results similar to getting a facelift. FaceTite makes use of radio frequency assisted skin tightening. You should consult with a skilled facial plastic surgeon for rejuvenating your face and neck by using the two techniques in combination or as standalone procedures.
Board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides facelift surgery combined with FaceTite to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding communities.
Traditional Facelift vs. FaceTite
InMode FaceTite makes use of Radio Frequency Assisted Lipolysis for tightening the skin. This procedure offers results almost similar to surgical techniques, which is why it is also called the non-surgical facelift. FaceTite is different from traditional surgical procedures even though it qualifies as a surgery.
Conventional facelifts employ excisional surgery. The plastic surgeon will use a scalpel for making incisions in the skin. They will pull the skin tight for removing any drooping or sagging. The surgeon will use sutures for reattaching the skin in an inconspicuous manner.
However, the treatment is not without downsides. There will be a resulting scar even if it is well-hidden. In addition, the procedure has a longer recovery period to allow the wound to heal properly. Surgical incision procedures have a slightly higher inherent risk and are also more expensive.
FaceTite is a proven technique that can achieve the most long-lasting rejuvenation results. Contours can be molded by the surgeon precisely for achieving the desired aesthetic results.
A major benefit of FaceTite over facelift is that the procedure can be performed using a few tiny marks. A thin cannula will be inserted under the skin. The procedure doesn’t require any sutures or incisions. Your skin will be simply contracted and not cut off for achieving a tighter look.
The method can be used for achieving lasting rejuvenation effects without worrying about the hassles of surgery.
