The treatment consists of heating the lower layer of the dermis of the skin, which is mainly made up of collagen. Over time, the body’s natural healing response creates new skin-tightening collagen. This is in addition to tightening existing collagen fibers and dissolving fat, which is why they often see immediate improvement before long-term effects. Previous RF devices did not penetrate as deeply into the skin and therefore the results were limited. However, FaceTite is considered a next-generation RF treatment that sends heat and energy straight to where it’s needed. It is unusual for doctors to see the skin contract while the patient is still on the table.
*This is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive treatment that delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy under the skin’s surface to melt fat in the face and stimulate collagen production.
