Face & Body Contouring
What is it?
FaceTite is an FDA-approved procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen production beneath your skin’s surface, tightening and firming sagging skin on the chin, jowls, cheeks, and neck.
The FaceTite procedure heats the lower dermis layer of the skin, which is primarily composed of collagen. Your body’s natural healing response to the heat energy causes new skin-firming collagen to form.
The treatment also tightens existing collagen fibers and dissolves fat, meaning some patients see immediate improvement, along with the treatment’s longer-term benefits.
Unlike previous RF devices that didn’t penetrate as deeply into the skin, FaceTite is a next-generation RF treatment that delivers the heat and energy directly where they’re needed. BodyTite uses the same technology for larger areas of your body.
What Can I Expect?
Dr. Falguni Patel performs this minimally-invasive procedure in-office, first placing the patient under local anesthesia. A tiny incision is made in the treatment area to insert the RF probe beneath the skin’s surface. An electrode is then passed over the skin’s surface to generate an electrical field that concentrates the RF energy to contract the skin and coagulate the fat.
The treatment takes about an hour, from start to finish, and the tiny incision doesn’t require stitches or leave a visible scar.
You should anticipate 3–4 days of downtime—typically less than for a surgical facelift or a skin-tightening laser treatment—and you may experience some bruising and swelling for up to a week. The treatment area often remains numb for several weeks after the procedure, however, so any lingering pain or discomfort is minimal.
You should see some visible improvement in your skin’s laxity after one week. Further tightening and contouring will occur rapidly over the first 3–4 months, with most results apparent within six weeks. Your skin will continue to improve for up to one year after treatment, and results can last up to five years.
What Is It?
For decades, the primary treatment to remove fat and increase tone was liposuction, a costly and invasive surgical procedure.
Our bodies are complex machines made up of tissue, muscle, and hormones. Staying in good shape is a challenge at any age, but our bodies become far less cooperative as we get older. We retain more fat, our muscles lose tone more quickly, and our skin becomes loose and begins to sag.
The Rejuvenate Center for Medical Aesthetics and Wellness now offers an alternative to surgery: BodyTite—a minimally-invasive body contouring procedure that reduces fat and tightens skin with surgical precision.
Powered by directional radio frequency (RF), BodyTite remodels tissue through fat coagulation and volumetric heating, similar to our AVIVA Scarless Labiaplasty procedure.
You achieve beautiful, long-lasting results without sagging and wrinkled skin, large incisional scars, or long recovery periods.
What Can I Expect?
The BodyTite procedure is performed under local anesthesia in our on-premise surgical suite. The procedure can range from 30 minutes to 3 hours, depending on your unique circumstances.
BodyTite is minimally invasive, and you only need one treatment. You’ll experience less pain, swelling, and downtime than with surgery, and can return home approximately one hour after the procedure.
Most patients can return to work and normal day-to-day function in as little as 2–3 days, although more extensive treatments can take up to 10 days to fully recover. You may need to wear a compression garment for 2–4 weeks as the area heals.
You’ll see results immediately. Optimal results will be noticeable after six months, and improvement will continue for up to 12 months.
