When you look into the mirror, do you see sagging, fat pockets, and skin folds on your face or neck? While various different cosmetic procedures are available in plastic surgery today, many patients are in search of a non-invasive treatment option that can provide them with the results they desire, but without the downtime. Take a look at how you can turn back time with FaceTite™ and NeckTite™ in Manhattan at Preminger Plastic Surgery.
What are FaceTite™ and NeckTite™?
Radiofrequence-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) is a relatively new technology that allows board-certified plastic surgeon in Manhattan, Dr. B. Aviva Preminger, the ability to treat these unwanted signs of aging without the need for aggressive surgical procedures such as a neck or facelift. RFAL is used for NeckTite™ and FaceTite™ procedures, and here is how it works.
How does it work?
Using a laser that penetrates deep beneath the skin via a probe, the heat technology is applied directly to the trouble areas of the neck or face. It can treat jowls and perioral mounds, which are pockets of fat that develop around the lips, something very common as we age. RFAL also can treat nasolabial folds, which are known as laugh lines, as well as malar festoons or fluid deposits on the upper cheeks.
The heat technology helps jump-start the body’s natural healing process and causes the fat cells to rupture and die. You can expect results to provide you with visibly tighter skin that is more youthful looking.
What should I expect?
Many patients require only one treatment of FaceTite™ or NeckTite™. With RFAL, there is essentially no downtime. This means that you are not restricted by your activities, and can resume your routine fairly soon after treatment. You should expect some level of swelling, which may be present between one to two weeks following your procedure. While results should be evident within the first few months after your treatment, final results may not appear until about 12 months later. One of the best benefits of FaceTite™ and NeckTite™ is that there is no scarring!
Am I a candidate?
There are many factors at play when determining candidacy. Dr. Preminger will need to assess your current state of health, review your medical history, and have a candid conversation with you regarding how you feel about your face and neck, as well as what you wish to change about your appearance. Understanding your treatment goals will allow Dr. Preminger to help you decide whether FaceTite™ or NeckTite™ is the right procedure for you, or if you need to explore other options.
