FaceTite vs Facelift

The signs of aging will impact us all at some point and with them come doubts and concerns about the way you look. Fortunately, there are a variety of treatments that can help. Most individuals are aware of facelifts or have at least heard of the procedure. A facelift is a surgical procedure that has been around for a while. Improving the signs of aging can also be as easy as a quick, in-office treatment without large surgical incisions through a procedure called FaceTite. Here’s how these two popular procedures compare to one another:

The Procedure

As mentioned, facelifts utilize surgical techniques to help reduce the signs of aging. This invasive procedure is able to provide a subtle lift to any sagging skin tissue and tighten facial muscles. The incisions used in the procedure are often done in discreet locations, typically around the hairline or other facial lines.FaceTite is a minimally-invasive procedure that instead uses radiofrequency energy to tighten skin tissue through a tiny incision. St Louis FaceTite procedures are handled through tiny pinpricks but patients are kept comfortable through the use of local anesthesia.

The Results of St Louis FaceTite

FaceTite and facelift procedures deliver similar results by reducing the appearance of aging. Patients of facelifts will require several weeks of recovery before noticing the full effect of their procedure. On the other hand, patients of FaceTite do not have a lengthy recovery time and can notice the results very soon after their procedure. Results of FaceTite will continue to become more noticeable in the weeks following the treatment as collagen fibers in the skin are regenerated. The results of FaceTite are natural looking and can last for years.

Which to Pick

If you are experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity, FaceTite may be the right treatment for you. FaceTite results are not as dramatic as the results from facelifts but can provide them without any unnecessary risks from surgery. Facelifts are the recommended option for individuals dealing with severe skin laxity and achieve results that cannot be done with a FaceTite procedure.
