FaceTite has been hailed as “the closest thing to a facelift” that isn’t actually a facelift. This minimally invasive treatment is a revolutionary contouring solution for the face and smaller areas of the body. It’s safe, very effective, and has a very high patient success rate.
Based on the technology behind BodyTite liposuction, FaceTite uses a computer-controlled application of radiofrequency energy. It’s a new form of energy assisted skin tightening that achieves fantastic results. Introduced in 2011, FaceTite has been hailed as an “instant lift.” We are very pleased to offer this incredible treatment at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery.
What is FaceTite?
All the years of living—sunshine, smoking, drinking alcohol—along with age and genetics eventually catch up to us all. The places that these years show up the most are the face, neck, and jowls. Many people choose to undergo a facelift to address this issue, but with FaceTite, you can get nearly the same benefits without having to undergo the surgery.
This procedure is considered to be one of the industry’s most advanced and safest facial rejuvenating and skin contouring procedures, using the same kind of radiofrequency technology that has been used in MRIs and other medical treatments for years. It has been developed to treat the most delicate areas of the skin without causing damage to any surrounding tissues.
This treatment can greatly improve skin around the:
- Nasolabial folds
FaceTite in Richmond is completely non-surgical, and it utilizes targeted radiofreequency energy to tighten the skin from inside the dermis while at the same time removing fat and contouring the face and neck.

FaceTite Recovery and Results
After about a week of recovery, patients typically go back to work with a minimal amount of swelling and bruising.
As mentioned above, the FaceTite procedure causes the skin to tighten by 40% instantly, but as new collagen is formed, there will be continuous improvement over a period of 3-6 weeks. If you take care of yourself, your FaceTite results will last for about five years.
