Ultherapy and FaceTite are two alternatives to traditional facelift surgery. While both these treatments can produce results, there are some differences between the two that should be considered. During your consultation, your surgeon will help you choose which treatment is best for you and your goals. Board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides FaceTite to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding communities.
FaceTite is a minimally invasive treatment that involves the use of radiofrequency energy to liquefy fat and stimulate collagen production in the lower half of the face and neck. This procedure requires minor incisions and the use of a thin cannula, and patients should expect a few days of minimal recovery. Side effects include swelling, bruising, soreness and numbness that usually subside within a week. Although this treatment is more invasive than Ultherapy, it can produce more significant results in just one treatment.
Ultherapy is an entirely non-invasive procedure for facial rejuvenation that uses ultrasound and thermal energy to encourage collagen production. This treatment can be used anywhere on the entire face, neck, and chest, which is ideal for patients that may have droopy skin around the eyes, forehead or cheeks. There is no recovery time associated with Ultherapy, and side effects include some redness lasting up to a few hours. More than one treatment may be necessary for patients to see desired results with Ultherapy.
Which Treatment is Best for Me?
FaceTite can provide significant results for patients with moderate to severe sagging, jowling, and wrinkles in the lower face and neck. Although more invasive than Ultherapy, typically only one treatment is needed. With Ultherapy, you may have less downtime, but may require multiple treatments to see desired results. If you’re unsure about which treatment is best for you, schedule a consultation to be assessed by a surgeon and to discuss your goals. Board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides FaceTite to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding communities.
