What is FaceTite?
A normal part of the natural aging process involves the slowing of elastin and collagen production in the epidermis. The result? More visible lines, creases, and wrinkles, as well as loose skin on the neck, jowls, and chin. To fight these elements of aging, Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa offers FaceTite. This premier nonsurgical procedure uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis to heat up and dislodge cells, causing your skin to firm and collagen to be produced at a much quicker rate. It's possible to enjoy a tighter, more youthful facial appearance with fewer wrinkles without experiencing the invasiveness and downtime from lifting surgeries. We invite you to schedule an appointment with double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Karen at our Winchester, VA practice to learn more about FaceTite and its amazing benefits.

Am I A FaceTite Candidate?
FaceTite is generally a great choice to treat smaller, more sensitive areas, like the lines which form around the mouth and below the eyes, in addition to the loose skin on the chin and neck region. You're a fantastic candidate for this procedure if you're experiencing the early signs of aging and wish for a boost in collagen production to achieve tighter, firmer skin. In order to receive this treatment, you should not be pregnant or have had cosmetic facial injections performed within the last 6 – 8 months. An appointment with Dr. Karen can determine whether or not you are a candidate for this procedure.
What Can I Expect from My FaceTite Procedure?
The FaceTite procedure is a minimally invasive process that involves inserting a tiny cannula beneath your skin while utilizing local anesthesia. Once the cannula is placed, external and internal thermometers will be used to make sure the heat remains at a comfortable temperature. Radiofrequency energy will be emitted and will attack fat cells, as well as cause your skin to contract, stimulating an increase in collagen production. Sessions normally last about 45 minutes per treated area. Following your treatment, you will be sent home to rest and relax for the remaining portion of the day wearing a compression garment. You will be able to return to your normal routine by the next day; however, it will take around three days for any redness or swelling to subside. Strenuous activities and exercises should be avoided for 1 – 2 weeks following the procedure. You will likely see some visible results directly after your FaceTite treatment, but since the procedure involves stimulating the collagen process, you will see more gradual improvements for about 3 – 8 weeks afterward. Your results will likely be long-lasting should you maintain a healthy weight through proper diet and exercise.
How much does FaceTite cost?
Your cost for FaceTite treatments will depend on the condition of your skin and your aesthetic goals. During your consultation at Exclusively Faces, Dr. Karen or a member of his team will examine your skin and listen to your concerns. Then he can create a personalized FaceTite treatment plan and estimate your costs. Exclusively Faces accepts a number of payment forms and can help you get low-interest financing.
Is a surgical facelift better?
A surgical facelift can provide very dramatic improvements to diminish wrinkles, lines, sagging skin, and more to create a more youthful appearance. However, if you aren't ready for the cost and recovery time of a surgical procedure, FaceTite offers excellent results and may be better for your needs.
Does BOTOX or dermal fillers help?
Wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX and dermal fillers (JUVÉDERM®) can be paired with FaceTite to achieve even more dramatic results. In most aesthetic plans, FaceTite will be performed first, and then BOTOX or dermal fillers are used a day to a week after. During your consultation, feel free to talk to Dr. Karen about your aesthetic goals to help him devise the appropriate plan for you.
How many FaceTite treatments will I need?
While many patients can achieve noticeable results after just one session, most will need multiple sessions to achieve their goals. During your consultation, Dr. Karen will examine your skin and be able to give you an estimate of the number of treatments necessary to reach your goals.
How long will my FaceTite results last?
The results from a FaceTite treatment continuously improve over 3 – 8 weeks and beyond and are very long-lasting; however, it is important to practice a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise to maintain optimal outcomes.
