We all do our best to maintain a fit, youthful, and healthy appearance, but as we get older this goal can become increasingly difficult. Stubborn fat and areas of loose, sagging skin can be extremely frustrating and nearly impossible to get rid of even with a healthy lifestyle. BodyTite and FaceTite are two RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipoplasty) treatments by INMODE designed to put an end to these issues while minimizing both surgery and recovery time.
San Antonio cosmetic surgeon Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez now offers these minimally invasive body contouring treatments to men and women looking to achieve their body goals at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery. BodyTite and FaceTite heats the target area using precision radiofrequency energy to melt stubborn fat cells beneath the skin while a thin tube (cannula) gently removes it from the body. This radiofrequency heating also stimulates a natural skin tightening response from your body, leaving you with a slimmer, natural looking contour.
FaceTite can be used to treat stubborn fat and sagging skin of the face and neck. Dr. Hernandez can help patients with common concerns such as a double chin, loose jaw line, and other areas with deep wrinkles and folds or loose skin.
A facelift requires invasive surgery and some patience during the recovery and healing process. After a facelift, there will also be a scar, though it could typically be hidden within your hairline when performed correctly. FaceTite does not require surgery and is designed to be scar-free. This non-surgical approach to facial contouring also means little to no recovery.
1) FaceTite device is placed against the skin at the problem area.
2) Cannula is inserted into the underlying layer of fat.
3) Radiofrequency thermal energy is used to melt fat for easy removal with the cannula.
4) Problem fat is reduced while skin experiences a tightening effect.
Most patients will be able to return home and resume normal activity within a day or two of their treatment. Dr. Hernandez may provide you with a healing garment to assist with healing and ensure the best possible outcome.
FaceTite is known for providing patients with immediate results. Your skin will appear firmer, and you should notice a slimming effect where stubborn fat was removed. The best results typically occur about 6-12 weeks after your FaceTite treatment with Dr. Hernandez.
