Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Rosa, CA is excited to offer FaceTite a new treatment that tightens loose face and neck skin.
Dr. Greg Chernoff now offers a new minimally invasive facial skin tightening system that delivers facial shaping results without surgery. FaceTite, manufactured by Inmode is a good alternative for some individuals who are not ready for a facelift but want to address skin laxity. FaceTite works safely in the sub-dermal plane to contract and contour skin tissue using advanced Radio Frequency (RF) technology.
FaceTite is similar to laser-assisted liposuction but uses a different type of energy to accurate and uniformly eliminate fat from the target areas of the body. An added plus is FaceTite tightens skin. Peer reviewed clinical studies report up to up to 36% tissue contraction after a FaceTite, procedure resulting in a more contoured body.
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is a new non-surgical body contouring procedure that uses RFAL Radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) technology. This minimally invasive lipolysis treatment uses three-dimensional tissue remodeling for lifting and tightening of the skin, in addition to radiofrequency assisted lipolysis for fat melting. The volumetric heating creates fat coagulation to reduce fat without sagging skin. Results can be seen immediately, with a noticeable improvement in the following 6 to 12 months.

How is a FaceTite Procedure Peformed?
The FaceTite procedure is an in-office treatment. The targeted area(s) are numbed using local anesthesia. Dr. Chernoff inserts a probe through an incision in the skin at the edge of the jaw just below the ear. The incision is very small so there is no scarring.
The FaceTite device is slowly moved along the patient’s jawline where the precise application of Frequency (RF) energy (heat) is released resulting in liquification of excess fat and skin contraction. Uniform heat is applied throughout the procedure providing results that are smooth and even with no damage done to the skin.
The entire procedure lasts about one hour, and patients can return home immediately after the procedure and typically can resume normal activities after 48 hours.
Dr. Chernoff may use compression wrappings to minimize swelling during the first few weeks of recovery. Results are seen immediately, with further improvement after the swelling resolves. Overtime patients see a more youthful appearance that continues to improve due to the increased collagen and elastin productions.
