If you’re interested in Facetite, it’s helpful to be as informed as possible about the procedure before you schedule your appointment. While a trusted plastic surgeon, like Dr. Colony, can answer all of your questions during a consultation, you may have some preconceptions about Facetite that are inaccurate. Here are a few of the most common myths about Facetite.
Myth #1: It’s Extremely Painful
In order to minimize discomfort during the face tight procedure, Combinations of general anesthesia, local anesthesia and sedation are typically used. Post-treatment discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication.
Myth #2: Improvements Aren’t Noticeable
Facetite is not going to produce the same results as a surgical facelift. However, it is going to provide the best results that can be achieved without surgery, and there will be no noticeable scars. If 100 percent satisfaction is reached with a surgical facelift, clients who use Facetite may expect 30 to 40 percent of the results. The facial tissue will be tightened without the downtime and scarring that would accompany surgery.
Myth #3: Any Practitioner Can Perform Facetite
In order to get the best results from the Facetite procedure, the plastic surgeon must be highly skilled. Anyone who does not perform facial surgery and has not demonstrated expertise in it should not use the device for Facetite procedures. Good results are related to the expertise and skill of the physician.
Myth #4: It’s Costly
Cost is something most people are concerned about when they are deciding whether to undergo a cosmetic procedure. Many patients, however, feel that the cost is more than worth it because the procedure is so effective in achieving their goal results and enhancing their self-esteem. This procedure is less expensive than surgery, both from a cost perspective and the fact that less downtime is needed. When a person chooses this procedure, they are investing in their future, personal satisfaction, and better opportunities in life.
Myth #5: Too Much Downtime
In comparison to a facelift, there is much less downtime with the Facetite procedure. A compression garment will need to be worn for the first few days after the procedure. After several days, it will only need to be worn at night. Facetite gives people the option of taking years off the perceived appearance of their face and neck without the need to go through invasive surgery.
