If you are a busy person with an active social life and a demanding job, you probably don’t want to spend weeks at home while you recover from an invasive cosmetic procedure. Fortunately, you don’t have to receive a facelift to contour your face and remove unwanted fat from this area of your body. At Veda Medical in Live Oak, Texas, we can use FaceTite to tighten your skin and sculpt your face in a gentle, minimally invasive fashion.
How Long Does FaceTite Last?
It’s common for the results of many aesthetic treatments to fade after a couple of months. When your face returns to its previous appearance, you’ll have to get regular follow-up sessions to maintain the benefits of your original treatment. Receiving frequent follow-up treatments can be expensive and frustrating, but you will not need regular maintenance treatments when you use FaceTite to improve your look.
This treatment uses radiofrequency technology to give you a youthful, vibrant appearance that will last for a significant period of time. Since your skin and face are unique, you may respond differently to this treatment than other people. However, it’s common for the positive changes in your face to last for up to five years. You can extend the benefits of this treatment by wearing sunscreen every day and using high-quality skincare products on your face.
What Areas of My Face Can This Technique Improve?
This radiofrequency treatment can be used to address loose skin on your neck and face. In addition, we can use this contouring method to remove fat from your jawline, lower face, and neck.
How Does This Aesthetic Treatment Improve My Face?
We will use a specialized technique called Radiofrequency Assisted Lipolysis, or RFAL, to transform your skin.
Heating Your Facial Tissues
During your treatment, we will insert a very small tube under the surface of your skin. We will use this tube to send carefully controlled amounts of heat energy into precise layers within your face. During this process, we will also move an external electrode over your face. This electrode will make an electrical field that will help us tighten and firm your skin.
Tightening and Contouring Your Skin
As the radiofrequency energy warms your tissues, the increased heat will dissolve your fat cells and remove unwanted pockets of fat from your face. This treatment will also enable your body to make more collagen fibers.
Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that strengthens your bones, skin, and many other parts of your body. Increasing the amount of collagen in your face will firm your skin and give you a youthful, healthy appearance.
Where Will I Receive My Treatment?
You don’t have to visit the hospital to receive this treatment. Instead, we will perform your facial contouring treatment in our comfortable office in Texas. Once we have finished treating your face, you’ll be able to return to your home. Further, we will take special measures to protect your comfort as we use this technique to improve your skin.
To achieve this goal, we will begin your treatment by injecting a local anesthetic into the fatty tissues on your face. This extra step will numb your treatment area and allow you to feel relaxed as we place our thin tube into your skin and move our specialized electrode over your face.
How Long Will I Take to Recover From My Facial Contouring Treatment?
This facial contouring treatment is much less invasive than a facelift, and you will be able to quickly return to your usual daily activities. That said, you will have a short period of downtime. For example, it’s normal to take a couple of days off from your job or childcare duties while your body is adjusting to your treatment.
We will also give you a compression garment to wear on your face. For the next couple of days, you’ll need to wear this garment throughout the day. For the next several weeks, you should wear this garment at night. Using this garment will help your skin quickly recover from your treatment.
How Many Contouring Treatments Will I Receive?
Radiofrequency energy is very effective, and you are likely to see a significant improvement in the firmness of your skin after you receive one treatment. In addition, a single treatment can reduce the amount of unwanted fat on your face.
That said, the condition of your skin and unwanted facial fat will affect the length of your contouring plan. If you want to remove more significant amounts of fat and tighten very loose skin, you might need to receive a series of radiofrequency treatments.
When Will I Notice Positive Changes in My Face?
This treatment will immediately melt your unwanted fat and improve the condition of the existing collagen fibers in your face. As a result, you may notice that your face is firmer and more youthful-looking when you leave our office. However, you will not see the complete effect of this radiofrequency treatment right away.
Over the next several weeks and months, your body will respond to this treatment by making additional collagen. As collagen builds up in your face, your loose skin will continue to tighten. It’s normal to see the full effect of your increased collagen levels within a year.
When Should I Consider Using This Facial Contouring Treatment?
Everyone ages at a different rate. Some people will develop loose, sagging skin in their early thirties or forties, while other people will not experience this issue until later in their lives. Accordingly, there’s no set age when a person should receive this facial contouring treatment.
Examining your skin and analyzing the unwanted fat on your face is a good way to help you decide when to use this treatment. In general, you will experience optimal results if you have mild or moderate skin laxity. You are likely to develop this issue in your thirties, forties, or fifties. Receiving this treatment will firm your skin and prevent this issue from becoming more severe.
Can I Use This Contouring Technique to Improve My Body?
In addition to improving the appearance of your face and neck, we can use a similar radiofrequency technique to tighten skin and remove fat from many places on your body. This technique, which is called BodyTite, can be used to contour your hips, thighs, and flanks. BodyTite can also sculpt your arms and abdomen.
Like FaceTite, BodyTite uses radiofrequency energy to dissolve your fat and firm your skin. Further, we can treat several different areas of your body during a single radiofrequency session. This is a minimally invasive process, and you will be able to quickly return to your normal schedule after your BodyTite treatment is complete.
Can I Use Other Cosmetic Procedures and Treatments to Improve My Face?
FaceTite isn’t the only way to reduce your unwanted fat and contour your face. We can use many other methods to transform your look and give you a sculpted, youthful-looking face.
If you have very lax skin on your face, you might be a good candidate for a facelift. As its name suggests, a facelift is a cosmetic procedure that will lift loose skin on your cheeks, jawline, and other areas of your face. During your procedure, we will gently reposition the skin and other facial tissues. We will also remove excess skin from your face.
A facelift is a good way to make lasting improvements in your appearance, and it’s normal for the benefits of this procedure to last for at least ten years.
If you want to lift and tighten your skin in a less invasive manner, you might benefit from receiving a mini facelift. During a mini facelift, we will use specialized techniques to firm loose skin on the lower portion of your face. This procedure can also improve the appearance of your jawline and smooth your wrinkles. A mini facelift will have a shorter recovery period than a facelift.
FracTotal is an innovative facial rejuvenation technique that uses three different methods to improve the appearance of your face. First, we will use a Forma device to send radiofrequency energy into your skin. This energy will lift the skin on the lower part of your face.
Next, we will use a Fractora device to lift the skin near your eyes and mouth. This device will also minimize your wrinkles and acne scars. Finally, we will use a Lumecca device to send Intense Pulsed Light into your skin. This device will improve your brown spots, rosacea, and sun damage.
During liposuction, we will use a tube to suction unwanted fat out of your body. Liposuction can be used to remove unwanted fat from your neck and chin. Since your body will not recreate the fat cells that we suctioned away, liposuction will permanently improve your body.
We can use a variety of techniques to customize your liposuction procedure to fit your unique needs. For example, if you are removing a large amount of fat from your body, we will probably sedate you during your procedure. If you are removing a smaller amount of fat, we are likely to use local anesthesia.
Can I Buy This Contouring Device Online?
You cannot buy this device online, and you should never try to perform this treatment on yourself. Instead, you must always receive this treatment from a skilled medical professional.
When you receive this treatment at Veda Medical, we will carefully monitor your body’s response to the radiofrequency energy. Further, we will use anesthesia and other techniques to help us feel comfortable while we are transmitting this energy into your skin.
Will the Improvements in My Face Look Jarring or Unnatural?
Although you may see immediate improvements in your face, many of the benefits of this cosmetic technique occur as your collagen levels gradually increase over the next couple of months. As your body creates new collagen fibers, the skin in your treatment area will slowly lift and tighten. As a result, the changes in your appearance will look very natural.
Your family members, co-workers, and friends will not be able to guess that you used an aesthetic treatment to transform your appearance. Instead, they might believe that you contoured your face by adopting a new skincare regime or living a healthier lifestyle.

FaceTite is an excellent way to firm your skin, remodel your facial tissues, and reduce unwanted fat on your neck and chin.
