WHAT IS FACETITE™?
FaceTite™ is a minimally invasive facial contouring procedure delivering results previously only achieved through more excisional surgical procedures. FaceTite™, powered by directional radiofrequency (RF), provides contraction of the dermis, subdermal connective tissue, and adipose tissue coagulation. Uniform RF thermal exposure aids, smoothes, evens contour results and provides superior internal and external lipolysis, and three-dimensional remodeling of fibrous septa.
FaceTite™ is a complete contouring solution for the face. Oftentimes patients are looking for a more significant solution for their face without the need to undergo surgery. FaceTite™ opens up the category of minimally invasive solutions by offering a solution that provides skin tightening without the large scars or downtime.
- Controls heating to ensure that treatment results are consistent, avoiding over-treated or under-treated areas.
- Real time temperature monitoring in deep fat areas and on the skin surface.
- Directional RF builds a temperature profile providing different treatment modalities for each tissue layer, from the deep fat layer up to the skin’s surface.
- Minimal Scarring
- Less trauma with shorter recovery
- Less bleeding
- Can be done with local anesthesia
- Better face contouring results
- Minimal bruising
- FaceTite™ carries less risk and potential complications than traditional surgery
- The FaceTite™ technology is minimally invasive and ensures skin tightening with no scarring or sutures necessary.
What areas can you treat with FaceTite™?
FaceTite™ can treat the lower face, under-chin area, and neck. The upper face can be treated with Accutite™ and the body can be treated with Bodytite™, both of which we also provide at Old Town Med Spa in Chicago.
FaceTite™ provides superior facial contouring and unprecedented three-dimensional contraction of the dermis, subdermal connective tissue matrix and subcutaneous fat.
Who is a good candidate for FaceTite™?
Anybody can be a candidate for FaceTite™, including men and women of any age group. Consultation is needed to determine if you are a candidate.
How long do FaceTite™ results last?
Over time, FaceTite™ causes 25-45% contraction of tissue along with tightening. So long as you maintain your weight within 5 to 10 pounds, the results of your FaceTite treatment will last for years to come.
Can FaceTite™ be done with liposuction? Or Without Liposuction?
When FaceTite™ is done in combination with Liposuction, it helps to reduce skin laxity and provide better results after to prevent more extensive surgery and bigger scars.
In some cases it can be done without Liposuction, and that can be decided during consultation.
In addition to tightening skin while simultaneously reducing fat, FaceTite™ can also help improve skin laxity after excessive weight loss or due to aging. In short, FaceTite patients see 40% firmer, more toned results compared to a traditional liposuction procedure.

Can FaceTite™ be done under local Anesthesia?
Our doctors are specialized in performing this procedure under local anesthesia or Conscious sedation, as it is minimally invasive and results in very small scars. Our patients tolerate it very well without being fully asleep.
Skin Tightening Benefits
FaceTite™ uses the radio-frequency energy to tighten the skin during the procedure. Traditional liposuction has very minimal skin tightening benefits. Oftentimes, this results in sagging skin after traditional liposuction. In addition to tightening skin while simultaneously reducing fat, FaceTite™ can also help improve skin laxity after excessive weight loss or due to aging.
At Old Town Med Spa in Chicago, we use the most advanced technology for Liposuction (Vaser Liposuction) in combination with BodyTite, FaceTite , AccuTite or Renuvion.
Recovery and Downtime
FaceTite™ leaves minimal scars, if any, that fade with time. FaceTite™ patients may still experience bruising and swelling, but the level of discomfort is greatly reduced.
Most of our FaceTite™ patients only have 2-3 days of downtime and achieve full recovery very quickly. A compression garment may also have to be worn with FaceTite™.
Keep in mind that with any procedure, results will vary from patient to patient. The best results are noticeable after 6 months to a year.
