A revolutionary alternative to liposuction
Age and weight fluctuations can contribute to the formation of excess pockets of fat in the face or neck.
Furthermore, as the years go on, the skin begins to lose its elasticity and can sag, forming unsightly jowls, folds, or deep wrinkles. In the past, the only treatment option was surgical, going under the knife for liposuction and to trim away the excess skin.
However, If you are looking for a less invasive and costly solution to addressing skin laxity on the face and neck, FaceTite in Albany, OR at Levitt Medical Aesthetics might be the perfect procedure for you!

How it works
Facial aging is a process we cannot avoid. However, it is a natural occurrence that we can now manage effectively using advanced non-surgical methods.
We perform FaceTite treatments under local anesthesia with sedation. Once the patient has been numbed, we make a small hole in the skin at the edge of the jaw, just below the ear. The incision is minimal and will not leave behind a scar after healing. We then insert a thin probe beneath the skin to provide thermal energy to the underlying tissues of the face. The probe is capped off with a plastic tip to prevent accidental skin perforation and unnecessary damage.
After we have inserted the probe, we place an external electrode overtop the outer skin. The probe and the electrode work in unison to create a contained thermal field that simultaneously targets the outer and inner layers of the skin for a comprehensive treatment. We slowly move the FaceTite devices along the jawline, liquefying fat and contracting the collagen and elastin in the skin along the way.
One of the greatest advantages of FaceTite in Albany, OR is that we can use it on all skin colors and types. Many other options for facial skin rejuvenation are not as effective on individuals with darker skin.
The FaceTite system delivers consistent results in both light and dark skin and can be used on all types of skin textures.
What to expect
As a minimally invasive treatment, FaceTite does not require an overly lengthy or uncomfortable recovery period.
Patients can return to work in three to five days. Common side effects include swelling, soreness, bruising, numbness and itchiness in the targeted areas. Most side effects improve drastically within the first week, include swelling. Patients may also notice an uneven skin texture that lasts two to three weeks as the skin adjusts and contracts.
Compression wrappings will minimize swelling and provide comfort during the first week or two of recovery.
The minor incisions will heal quickly with no stitches and will not leave behind noticeable scarring. Patients can generally resume regular activities about 48 hours after the procedure, although moderate swelling will be visible for the first three to five days and patients may want to stay home during this time.
This is also a procedure that can be paired with RF microneedling to stimulate collagen on a superficial level.
Before & after
Patients can return home and resume their regular activities shortly after we have completed their treatment. Wearing a compression garment according to our instructions is required for best results and will also help to reduce and manage any swelling you may experience.
FaceTite is safe and uses the latest technology to remove fat cells and tighten skin from the targeted area. It comes with state-of-the-art temperature sensors, which ensure the treatment takes place at a safe temperature at all times.
FaceTite is proven to last up to one year, but has been shown to last as long as 5 years in clinical studies. FaceTite for face and neck is the perfect solution for those seeing the initial signs of lower facial aging.
If you have wrinkles, fine lines, loose skin, or excess fat in your lower face and neck, then you are an excellent candidate for FaceTite. FaceTite patients are those who are interested in facial contouring anti-aging treatments but who wish to avoid surgery and the lengthy recovery and scarring associated with it. Dr. Levitt can determine if you are a good candidate for FaceTite based on an in-person evaluation where he examines your skin laxity and discusses your desired results.
