As we age, the body's collagen production and elastin begin to decrease, which causes the loose, wrinkled skin that can be associated with getting older. Patients may notice that they have gradually developed more facial lines, a double chin, jowls, and hanging skin around their neck. FaceTite is a system designed to address all of these issues in a minimally invasive way, using radio frequency-assisted lipolysis. The heat from the energy is able to dislodge fat cells while simultaneously making the skin contract for a tighter, more youthful appearance. VIP Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, offers this innovative treatment as an alternative to invasive, surgical procedures such as a facelift or neck lift. We encourage both men and women in the Las Vegas, NV area to contact our office today to learn more about FaceTite.
"I have to say I had a great experience. I had bad Botox and lip filler from another plastic surgeon in New York it made my lines worse and my lips asymmetrical. After moving cross country I researched plastic surgeons and found DR. K . He fixed everything. No more lines and my lips look great . He has great bedside manner and he is excellent at what he does. Oh and have to mention my lip filler was virtually pain free thanks to Dr. K properly making sure I was completely numb. Anyone who has had filler before knows it’s no walk on the park but this guy is great. Thank you DR. K for fixing my face ??????"- S.F. / Google / Jul 14, 2018

"So I am updating my review and I'm still giving everyone a 5+ star rating! I did the fraxel on Monday and it's Sunday evening and yes I am still pink but the results are amazing! My hyper pigmentation and most of my texture is gone! I also received a chin implant with Dr K on Wednesday so I'm still swollen with that but I know I'm going to love the result of that as well! Again I need to give a shout put to Mel for being a beast with a laser! She is my go to when it comes to my aesthetic needs and also Dr K for giving me confidence with my profile. I just wish the swelling would go down faster! lol damn lack of patience. Well I now have a laundry list of other things I would like to tweak. And I know VIP is the place I can trust and know I'll get the best work done!"- V.B. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2017

FaceTite will be most effective in treating smaller areas of both the face and body such as the chin/neck, lower eyes, arms, breasts, and inner thighs. Patients will be the most ideal candidate for receiving this treatment if they:
- Have loose, or droopy skin on their face/neck
- Do not require excessive fat removal
- Wish to avoid surgical operations
- Desire long-term, natural results
- Are not currently pregnant
- Have not had dermal fillers injected for at least 6 – 8 weeks
During this procedure, a small cannula is inserted underneath the skin of the area(s) being treated. Once inserted, our surgeon can control the temperature and target the loose skin as well as fat deposits. The heat emitted from the radio frequency energy will cause the collagen to ignite and the skin to tighten. The cannula is constantly monitored through an internal and external device to ensure that the temperature is always at a safe level.
Only a local anesthetic is required to perform FaceTite, and patients should experience minimal discomfort. They will be sent home with a compression garment to rest for a few hours but can typically resume normal activities the same day. Strenuous activity, like exercise, should be avoided for 1 – 2 weeks. Since there are no large incisions being made, patients should not experience scarring after their procedure if they follow all of the proper recovery instructions. There may be some swelling and redness in the treated areas for around three days following the procedure, but this should subside as the skin heals.
Patients will generally see some visible results right after their FaceTite treatment. However, since the procedure involves stimulating the collagen process, they will see more gradual improvements for around 3 – 8 weeks following the treatment.
How Many Sessions?
This will vary case by case. However, in general, only one session should be needed to produce the desired results. It is possible for patients to undergo more treatments if recommended by our surgeon.
Better Than Surgical Lifting?
While surgical lifting procedures are generally used to produce more dramatic and drastic results, FaceTite is still effective in treating loose skin in smaller, more concentrated areas. Some of the benefits having this treatment over a facelift or neck lift may be:
- Controlled, precise skin tightening
- Local anesthesia versus general anesthesia
- No large incisions, which helps to eliminate scarring and potential risks
- A great reduction in downtime following the procedure
Since the procedure involves creating new collagen in the body, the results should be long standing. It is possible, however, for natural signs of aging to still progress and weight gain to alter the results.
