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.
"Totally amazing experience - I was anxious to get the turkey waddle under my chin fixed as well as the bags under my eyes. However I was not willing to have a surgical procedure. Dr Ho performed facetite on my neck and got rid of my bags on my lower eyelids. It was done in the office and was relatively pain free. Dr Ho is extremely professional and I was so happy with the results. Sandra his coordinator walked me..."- E. / RealSelf / Feb 12, 2018
"Much Better Jawline Now! - Dr. Ho is simply Fantastic. I had the Facetite procedure done and it was a great solution for my fat deposits under my chin. I am approaching 50 so I needed just a little bit of a lift to keep my jawline looking younger. Dr. Ho is double board certified and I trust his judgement and steady hand. I am pleased with the results as these photos were taken only a month after being done and it looks even better now. Book your appointment with his team, you will not be disappointed!"- I. / RealSelf / May 27, 2020
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.
