The New Year is a time for you to make desirable changes, whether you want to start a new exercise routine, eat healthier, or improve your appearance with cosmetic enhancements. We often find that patients choose the New Year as their time to rejuvenate themselves with surgical or nonsurgical treatments.
Word has spread among our patients about the results that we are obtaining with FaceTite®, a minimally invasive method that tightens facial structures with relatively little discomfort or downtime. Dr. Cook is one of the first physicians in the Chicago area to offer this innovative procedure and has found that its results surpass other minimally-invasive facial rejuvenation techniques in circulation today.
How is FaceTite® Different?
There are plenty of ways to improve the quality of your facial structure and appearance. With laser therapy, injectable treatments, and surgical procedures, you have several options depending on your unique characteristics and cosmetic goals.
Some patients prefer the advantages of FaceTite® which don’t involve incisions while others desire dramatic results and don’t mind the surgical techniques that are required. When you’re looking for a minimally-invasive yet highly effective method for facial rejuvenation, FaceTite® may be the right procedure for you.
The FaceTite® system uses radiofrequency energy to decrease fatty deposits and tighten lax skin along the jawline and neck. During the procedure, Dr. Cook inserts a probe under the skin through a tiny opening and places a second probe on top of the skin. The two probes are joined at a handle, which allows energy to flow from the tip of one probe to the tip of the other probe. Dr. Cook glides the probes back and forth over an area until the desired energy level is reached. This produces a significant tightening of the skin.
The energy delivered by the FaceTite® device only affects the tissues between the probes. This prevents it from removing the deeper fat of the face or from causing damage to deeper structures. There are three internal feedback systems, which keep the energy delivered in a range that is optimum for treatment but below a level that would produce damage.
Is FaceTite® the Right Resolution for You?
FaceTite® can be easily combined with other customizable and minimally invasive procedures, such as fat transfers or Fractora®. Dr. Cook has found that the treatment is highly effective along the jaw border and neck. We often combine several facial rejuvenation methods to target more than one cosmetic concern in a single treatment session.
Patients will see results from the treatment in the weeks following the procedure, and the tone of the treated areas will continue to improve for approximately 6 months. For the right patient with mild to moderate looseness along the neck and jaw border, the FaceTite® treatment has many advantages.
A consult with Dr. John Q. Cook and his team at The Whole Beauty® Institute will help you decide if the FaceTite® procedure is a good match for your goals. Treatment with FaceTite® will not produce the same dramatic results as face lift surgery, but it does significantly improve the contours of the face and create an appealing aesthetic, especially in the jaw border an neck regions.
