What Is FaceTite?
Unlike its name, FaceTite isn’t a way to make your face look fake and too tight. In fact, this non-surgical facelift procedure is becoming increasingly popular in NYC because of the natural results you get. FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten and contour your face, neck and other areas of the body so you look rested and renewed.
You only need local anesthesia for this outpatient procedure. It requires minimal downtime while providing excellent results with minimal scarring and no risk of infection. FaceTite in NYC gives you a more youthful appearance without having to go through surgery or along recovery time. At Millennial Plastic Surgery in Manhattan, Dr. David Shokrian oversees top board-certified plastic surgeons in NYC that provide FaceTite and other spa treatments in the comfort of their MedSpa offices.

What Are the Reasons to Get FaceTite?
While your reasons are your own, you’re not alone if you want FaceTite. There are countless reasons why you may want to look younger, including:

- Self-esteem. Looking younger boosts your self-confidence. A youthful appearance can make you feel more desirable, which leads to a positive attitude.
- Professional advancement. In professions like modeling or acting, looking younger is an advantage. You feel the need to maintain a youthful appearance to remain competitive.
- Personal relationships. You may want to look younger to attract a partner or to maintain a sense of youthfulness in your other personal relationships.
- Health. Looking younger is a sign of good health, which can spur you to good habits, such as eating a nutritious diet and maintaining a regular exercise regimen.

What’s the Difference between FaceTite and a Face Lift?
FaceTite and facelifts are two cosmetic procedures that improve your facial appearance, but they work in different ways. A facelift, also called rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess skin and tightening the underlying muscles to lift and rejuvenate your face. It’s typically performed while you’re under general anesthesia and involves incisions around your ears or sometimes in your hairline. A facelift addresses sagging skin, deep wrinkles and jowls.
On the other hand, FaceTite is a non-surgical procedure that involves:
- Local anesthesia. Your Manhattan doctor administers local anesthesia to numb the treatment area.
- Incision. A small incision is made in the skin, usually around your chin or ear.
- Cannula insertion. A small cannula or thin tube is inserted through the incision and guided to the treatment area under the skin.
- Radiofrequency energy delivery. With the cannula in place, radiofrequency energy is delivered to the tissues beneath the skin. This energy heats the tissues, causing them to contract and tighten.
- Contouring. Your doctor uses the cannula to gently contour the treated area, creating a more defined and youthful appearance.
- Repeat for other areas. The doctor may repeat the process for other areas of your face and neck as needed.
- Incision closure. Once the procedure is complete, the incisions are closed with sutures or surgical tape
FaceTite typically takes 30 to 60 minutes to complete, depending on the extent of the treatment. Most people return to their normal activities within a few days, but it’s important to follow the doctor’s instructions for recovery and aftercare. While a face lift provides more dramatic results, FaceTite is a good option if you’re not ready for surgery or have minor concerns.

- Applying ice packs to the treated area for 15 to 20 minutes every hour for the first 24 to 48 hours to reduce swelling and discomfort
- Wearing a compression bandage for a few days
- Avoiding any makeup or skin products on the treated area for at least two days
- Avoiding exposure to direct sunlight and using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 when going outdoors
