A defined neck and jawline is what we all want! BUT, Not all patients concerned with lower face and neck aging are ready for surgery or the downtime typically associated with surgery. Facetite is a minimally invasive solution to give dramatic results to firm the skin of the cheeks, and neck as well as diminish the jowls from the natural collagen depletion that come with age.
For many years, Dr. Niccoli and Tarah have been searching for a solution to address these concerns and after much research and discussion with top facial plastic surgeons across the country, they chose Facetite, which delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy beneath the skin’s surface to shrink fatty tissue and stimulate collagen production for firmer, tighter skin. Unlike many other non-surgical devices on the market today, Facetite is only performed by qualified surgeons to reduce possible risk and increase positive outcomes. This device allows us to provide a variety of treatments, in one visit, to help each individual patient achieve their desired outcome. Additional procedures that may be performed with Facetite include submental liposcution, dernal fillers and Morpheus8.

Prior to your Facetite procedure at Colorado Laser Spa, we usually give patients a sedative and then add Nitronox, which delivers “laughing gas” throughout the procedure.
The procedure is performed with only local anesthesia to numb the areas where tiny incisions are created for the insertion of the cannula. The cannula itself is very thin, about the size of a knitting needle. The treatment areas are injected with a tumescent solution common to modern liposuction. The solution consists of saline, epinephrine, and Lidocaine. This numbs the area, makes the fat easier to remove, and constricts the blood vessels for less bleeding and subsequent bruising. Then the Facetite headpiece cannula is inserted. On the tip of the cannula is an internal electrode that delivers the radiofrequency energy below the skin to liquefy the fat. Above the skin on the surface rests the other portion of the headpiece, a metal wand that serves as the external electrode. This is important because it gives the RF energy a pathway upward through the skin from the internal electrode to the external electrode. This provides the skin tightening typical to RF treatments.
While the thin cannula is delivering the RF energy below the skin to liquefy and then suction out unwanted fat, the RF energy is also pulsing upward through the skin. This is the dual benefit of FaceTite.
As we age, the skin on the lower portion of our face loosens and begins to sag. This is a universal problem with aging, especially in the jowls. Facetite is a good option for anyone with this loose skin who would like to tighten up their profile but doesn’t want to have surgery to do so. In reality, that’s pretty much anyone over age 45.
The one exception is if you’ve had any dermal fillers injected recently. If you have, you’ll need to wait at least two months before you should have Facetite at Colorado Laser Spa.
FaceTite can be used anywhere above the shoulders, but we recommend it for these areas of the face and neck:
For below the neck areas of concern be sure to check out our Bodytite treatment.
Downtime is approximately 3 to 4 days though some patients may have some residual bruising that can typically be covered with makeup for up to 10 days. It’s best to take off at least 2 days of work and avoid exercise for one week.
A compression garment is given to wear all day for 3 days and then at night for 2 more weeks. This can be removed for short periods of time to shower, etc.
Visible improvement is typically seen around one week following treatment with 60-70% of results apparent by week six. Tightening and contouring will continue for up to 9 to 12 months post-treatment. Results can last up to 5 years but patients will not go back to looking how they did pre-procedure. While the aging process still continues, patients typically look better 5 years after Facetite than had they not had the treatment done. It helps to maintain results with a good skincare regimen, sunscreen and a healthy lifestyle.
Improvement is typically 40-60% of what can be achieved with facelift surgery.
