In time, the body's natural supply of collagen and elastin run out, causing the skin to become less firm and elastic. In the face, this can create a double chin, jowls, facial lines and wrinkles, loose neck skin, and more. At Beyond Beautiful Texas in Plano, TX, double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Vu Ho has added the FaceTite system for facial contouring and refinement. FaceTite uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to remove fat and tighten the skin of the face and neck. The addition of radiofrequency energy allows FaceTite to be minimally invasive procedures with very little scarring and less recovery time than a surgical facelift.

FaceTite is designed for smaller areas, including the neck, jowls, lower eyes, as well as the arms, inner thighs, breasts, and knees. FaceTite is best for patients who:
- Do not want or need to remove stubborn areas of fat
- Have loose skin in their face and neck
- Have wrinkles and fine lines on their face
- Want to avoid surgical scars and recovery times
- Want to correct a double chin or jowls
What to Expect
Patients will be placed under local anesthesia during their procedure to reduce discomfort before the small, non-aspirating cannula is inserted under the skin. The cannula heats to a safe temperature (using monitors both inside and outside of the skin) to stimulate skin contraction. Since FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure, no scars will be visible if the patient follows the doctor's post-treatment instructions for skin care.
Patients will be able to see some results immediately after their procedure, but the best results will not be visible for at least 6 – 12 weeks once the swelling subsides. Patients should wear a special compression garment in any treated areas to help their results. Patients are able to leave after their procedure and after a few hours of rest, can resume normal activities. Strenuous activity, like exercise, should be avoided for 1 – 2 weeks.
