When to Choose FaceTite over a Facelift

Posted on: April 6, 2018 In: Facelift, Plastic Surgery

The facelift has always been a popular procedure to dramatically improve signs of aging in the face such as wrinkles and sagging. But now you can choose FaceTite, a noninvasive alternative to the facelift. Both have different benefits that might appeal to you depending on your concerns, so when should you choose FaceTite?

If you don’t want incisions or scarring…

Incisions are unavoidable if you choose a facelift. Incisions are always places where they can be concealed, so scarring is as hidden as possible, but some patient still don’t like the idea of going under the knife. FaceTite is noninvasive, using controlled energy to heat the tissue and tighten the skin. So if you’re not ready for a surgical procedure, FaceTite might be right for you.

If you have mild to moderate loose skin…

The great thing about a facelift is that it gives dramatic results, improving severe facial sagging. But if your signs of aging are mild to moderate with some skin laxity and wrinkles, you may not need a surgical procedure yet. FaceTite causes your collagen to contract, tightening the skin as it heals to reduce your signs of aging.

If you don’t want recovery time…

Because it’s nonsurgical, FaceTite requires less downtime, so you don’t have to worry about taking as much time off work, discomfort, or exercise restrictions. You’ll be able to resume your normal activities sooner and see progressive improvements over the next three to six months.
