Your face is one of the first places the signs of aging can show. Wrinkles, creases, and sagging skin can all make you look more tired and older than you want. But surgeries like facelifts can be expensive, painful, and they take you away from living your life. Is there another way?

Our state-of-the-art luxury medspa in Los Angeles, California, is a premier destination for the latest in non-invasive cosmetic medicine.

FaceTite is a relatively recent development in the ongoing battle against time. As we age, the skin on our face begins to show the wear and tear of a busy life and exposure to the sun and environmental stressors. These factors often cause the skin on our faces to lose its natural resilience and ability to heal itself.
That means wrinkles persist and fat deposits sink, leaving us looking older and less healthy. But a FaceTite treatment procedure undoes this damage through the combined power of radiofrequency (RF) energy and minimally-invasive liposuction. Sometimes called “radiofrequency-assisted liposuction” (RFAL), this technique targets facial wrinkles and folds, particularly on the lower half of the face. By removing excess fat and tightening skin, the results can be outstanding.
The FaceTite procedure focuses on restoring your facial features in the lower half of your face. This includes the cheeks, chin, jawline, and neck. FaceTite can alleviate concerns like:
In your consultation at Marina MedSpa, we will discuss your trouble spots to determine if FaceTite is the right solution for you. Together, we will craft a fully customized treatment plan that specifically addresses your desires and lifestyle.
The FaceTite procedure generally takes about an hour to perform. It only requires local anesthetic, but compression wraps are used in recovery, so you may consider having a friend or family member available to drive you home following the treatment.
Your aesthetic professional will gently clean your skin then administer a local anesthetic to the targeted area. When it has taken effect, they will make a small incision. Then, the small FaceTite device is inserted just under your skin. FaceTite then delivers its targeted RF energy into the skin and fat tissue. This simultaneously stimulates collagen production in your skin while also liquifying fat cells.
A small tube on the device uses suction to remove the treated fat. Depending on the scope of your treatment plan, incisions may be made in multiple locations. This is necessary to treat the entire area and provide even, natural-looking results. When that is complete, the incisions will be closed, and compression bandages will be applied.
While a newer procedure, FaceTite is considered safe and effective. It is minimally invasive but can still carry some risks associated with surgery. Let your cosmetic care provider know if you have any major medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, or are pregnant.
Also, some medications and/or supplements can interfere with blood flow and can pose extra risks of bleeding. The best candidates are at or close to their ideal weight and have been stable for a few months before undergoing the FaceTite procedure. It is also crucial for patients to fully understand the process and have realistic expectations for their results. As with all elective procedures, we recommend you consult with your primary care physician before the treatment.
Your provider will equip you with detailed instructions for recovery, including using the compression bandages and how to care for the incision sites and your healing tissue. Recovery usually takes up to 48 hours, and most patients choose to return to work and their normal routines after two days. You can expect to experience some swelling, bruising, and minor pain around the incision sites. This is usually mild and can be managed with cold compresses or over-the-counter medication.
After the side effects of your FaceTite procedure have resolved, you should begin to notice smoother, firmer skin within the first week. Full results should be visible after about a month, and your body has fully healed, and the new collagen and elastin production is in full swing. Results will vary based on your body type, but results last several years. Taking care of your skin and maintaining a healthy lifestyle will largely determine the duration of your ideal results.
