A surgical facelift is an often recommended solution to reverse these changes and attain a desirable facial appearance. Many are however opposed to this option because it comes with a longer recovery downtime, higher risks, and incisions.

FaceTite is an exciting new nonsurgical procedure that uses radiofrequency lipolysis to melt and displace unwanted fat cells. This results in increased collagen production, which causes the skin to smoothen and tighten.

Patients who undergo a FaceTite are able to address facial sagging and wrinkles without the need for invasive surgery, resulting in a youthful and freshened facial appearance that increases their self confidence and quality of life.

Houston, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Balinger offers FaceTite procedures to patients in Houston, Conroe, and surrounding Texas communities. The surgeon understands that your best self is connected to your self-confidence. Working with a team of experienced clinicians, Dr. Christopher goes out of his way to make sure that each patient is comfortable, safe, and happy with their procedure outcome. He uses state of the art equipment and advanced methods to achieve the best result while minimizing the risk of side effects.

Can a FaceTite Procedure Help Me?

A FaceTite is a nonsurgical plastic surgery procedure that alleviates lines and other signs of aging in areas of the face such as the mouth, neck, and chin. You may be a good candidate for facetite plastic surgery if:

  • You are in good physical and emotional health
  • You have sagging or loose skin around your neck and jowls 
  • You are worried about wrinkles or fine lines on the lower face 
  • You have lines around the mouth 
  • You have excess tissue beneath the tissue 
  • You have decreased elastin and collagen production on areas of the face 
  • You have realistic expectations about the outcome of this procedure

When you visit Dr. Balinger for your first FaceTite consultation in Houston Texas, the surgeon will listen to you and examine your problem areas before letting you know whether this nonsurgical procedure is for you. FaceTite procedure is a highly individualized treatment. For this reason, Dr. Christopher recommends that you have this treatment out of your own choice, not because someone else wants you to.

What Areas Does a FaceTite Treat?

FaceTite, which uses radiofrequency energy, is designed for patients who wish to achieve the same results as a mini facelift but without the downtime and risks associated with surgery. This procedure is an innovative solution to tighten jowls and reverse facial sagging. It also helps combat damage from the environment, sun exposure, poor genes, as well as smoking and aging, helping you look as young as you feel on the inside. Most people have a facelift to address cosmetic issues in the jawline, jowls, forehead, neck, cheeks, brows, nasolabial folds, eyes, and mouth.

Plan your Procedure in Houston Texas

A surgical facelift is not the only option for achieving tighter and more youthful skin in the face and neck. FaceTite treatment uses special radiofrequency assisted lipolysis to stimulate collagen and contract the epidermis. The cost of FaceTite plastic surgery in Houston TX can vary significantly from one patient to the other, based on the extensiveness of the treatment.

During your consultation visit with Dr. Balinger, the surgeon will provide a cost estimate based on a personalized treatment plan developed for you. Health insurers typically do not cover the cost of FaceTite because it is considered to be an elective cosmetic procedure. However, the surgeon offers financing options for his patients in Houston, Conroe, and surrounding TX areas.

Your Initial FaceTite Consultation

During your first Houston TX FaceTite skin tightening consultation, Dr. Balinger will ask questions and review your medical history to learn more about your health. The surgeon will also examine your problem areas and skin laxity before moving forward to the next step. This initial consultation – which is offered free of charge at Balinger’s office – offers an opportunity to learn more about what this treatment entails, and what you can expect from the procedure.

Procedure Technique

FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure that is typically performed under local anesthesia. Your plastic surgeon will insert a special device known as a cannula beneath your skin, then use internal and external thermometers to monitor temperatures. The objective of this minimally invasive technique is to use radiofrequency energy to melt and dislodge fat cells. The treatment also causes the skin to contract and increases collagen and elastin production, helping achieve a smoother and youthful facial appearance. A single Facetite procedure takes about 45 minutes to complete for each treatment area.

What to Expect After FaceTite in Houston

FaceTite plastic surgery has fewer risks and entails a shorter recovery period compared to traditional facelift procedures. Immediately after the treatment, you will be asked to return home so you can rest and relax throughout the remainder of the day.

A compression garment will be fitted to aid healing and help protect your treated areas. Many patients are able to get back to their daily routine as soon as the next day.

However, you will experience discoloration and swelling that can last for three days. Strenuous exercises and activities must be avoided throughout the first two weeks. You will likely notice some results shortly after your facetite in Houston. However, since the treatment stimulates collagen production over time, there will be more gradual improvements within 3-8 weeks after the procedure. Dr. Balinger recommends that patients maintain a healthy lifestyle and stable weight in order to preserve the outcome of their treatment.

What is FaceTite™?

FaceTite™ is a minimally invasive procedure that tightens skin with radiofrequency energy. The advantages of FaceTite™ compared to surgery are that you have very little downtime and no scars. Dr. Balinger recommends FaceTite™ for men and women who have mild sagging and wrinkles. Dr. Balinger recommends FaceTite™ to treat:

  • Neck
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Jawline and jowls
  • Cheeks
  • Forehead
  • Brow area

This provides patients with minor sagging and wrinkles with an alternative to a facelift, brow lift, mini facelift, and neck lift.

How much does FaceTite™ cost?

Dr. Balinger describes the FaceTite™ procedure during the consultation and develops a personalized plan for your procedure. After the appointment, we use the plan as the basis for your cost. We offer free initial consultations at our offices in Houston and Conroe, as well as financing options for our patients.

What are the benefits of FaceTite™?

  • Less downtime compared to a surgical facelift
  • Recommended for men and women who do not need surgery, yet wish to look younger
  • Can be combined with dermal fillers and injectables
  • No scars

How is FaceTite™ performed?

FaceTite™ works by delivering radiofrequency energy from the surface of the skin, as well as inside the skin below the fat and connective tissues. The procedure begins with an injection of local anesthesia that contains an agent to harden the fat. The probe is inserted into the skin, and the radiofrequency energy is applied. The process breaks down the fat and causes the skin to constrict. You may feel a slight sensation of heat during the procedure.

What is recovery like after FaceTite™?

FaceTite™ requires very little downtime. You may want to relax at home for the rest of the day. Minor swelling may develop and the area may feel sore for five to seven days. You can return to work and your normal activities after one week.

How long will FaceTite™ results last?

On average, the results of a FaceTite™ treatment lasts up to five years. Each person’s skin ages at a different rate, so your results may vary.

Surgery is not the only way to look younger. If you have been told that your wrinkles are not severe enough for surgery, you may be a candidate for FaceTite™, a minimally invasive treatment for the face and neck. Dr. Christopher Balinger offers FaceTite™ for men and women in Houston, Conroe, and the nearby communities in Texas. Contact us today to schedule a free FaceTite™ consultation at our office in Houston or our office in Conroe.
