FaceTite™ is a minimally invasive procedure that tightens and contours the skin. FaceTite™ is a revolutionary technology that uses radiofrequency, which is heat energy, to stimulate the body to create more collagen. This results in tightening of the skin in areas such as the neck, jowls, and cheeks.
Candidates For Facetite™
FaceTite™ is perfect for Houston and Lake Jackson patients who have excess skin due to aging, sun damage and genetics and who look and feel older. This is an ideal solution for patients who want to look younger, but that are not candidates or not ready to undergo a Facelift procedure. FaceTite™ works best on patients with mild to moderate skin laxity. Severe skin laity is better treated with excisional procedures, such as a facelift. Patients who may wish to undergo this procedure should be in good general health and refrain from smoking.
A hand-held cannula delivers radiofrequency energy underneath the skin during your FaceTite™ procedure. To help patients avoid experiencing any discomfort, the procedure is performed with a local anesthetic and it lasts less than one hour. After the procedure, patients will see gradual results that will continue up to 1 year after your procedure as new collagen is formed.

At Town and Country Plastic Surgeons, we believe that skin and body rejuvenation is an evolutionary process that does not begin and end solely with the surgery itself.
While we do know that surgery is the most dramatic and gratifying part of the rejuvenation process, our doctors can enhance and even maximize your surgery results with our “comprehensive rejuvenation concept.” This concept is essentially a treatment plan specifically designed for each procedure in order to prepare the skin and body for surgery and to aid the healing process following your surgery.
For the FaceTite™ procedure, the comprehensive rejuvenation process entails weekly ultrasound and lymphatic massage treatments after your treatment. These painless treatments help improve bruising, swelling, inflammation after your procedure and maximize results.
We do recognize that many people do not have the time or inclination to take advantage of the complete program, and we want to assure you that your surgical results will be the best attainable anywhere. However, if you are in a position to take advantage of the “comprehensive rejuvenation concept,” you will find the entire experience to be more relaxing, and you will know that you have treated yourself to the most unique and gratifying experience that plastic surgery has to offer. And you will know that you have availed yourself of the ultimate in skin and body rejuvenation.
