FaceTite in Atlanta, GA
Our face is the first thing people see and it can create lasting impressions with those we have interactions with. Even with the help of a healthy diet and regular exercise, no one can avoid the effects of aging, genetics, smoking, and sun damage that can cause unwanted creases, wrinkles, sagging skin, which all lend to the illusion of an older appearance and fatigue. With FaceTite in Atlanta, GA, a facelift procedure is no longer the only available option to obtain gorgeous anti-aging results.
While skin care and minimally invasive procedures such as Botox® and dermal fillers can provide some localized, temporary improvements to signs of aging, patients with more advanced wrinkles and skin laxity often seek out a facelift or neck lift. However, some patients aren’t ready to commit to such an invasive treatment, and before now there weren’t many options available to them.
At Radiance Surgery and Aesthetic Medicine in Atlanta, GA, board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. C. Carson Huynh offers a wide range of facial rejuvenation procedures from more invasive procedures like facelift, neck lift, and eyelid surgery, to the non-invasive options like FaceTite, Botox, or the amazing Non-Surgical Facelift for those who aren’t ready to go under the knife yet, but still want to rejuvenate their appearance. His extensive education and training with a dual-doctorate degree in the practice of maxillofacial and facial aesthetic plastic surgery, Dr. Huynh holds a deep understanding of the intricate contours of the face and uses his top-tier skills to preserve the structures of the face so results look natural.

What Is FaceTite?
FaceTite is a groundbreaking new technology that allows for near surgical results using very small incisions to tighten and restore the youthful position of the skin— and with minimal downtime. FaceTite uses innovative technology to apply radio frequency energy waves to the skin both internally and externally. The external tissue is carefully heated causing dermal tightening and contraction, resulting in vastly improved skin contour and tightening. The internal tissue heating results in lipolysis (or the busting of cells) and tightening of the underlying collagen network. The ruptured fat is then removed via liposuction. As a result of this impressive combination, you are left with a contoured neck and jowl region with very minimal incisions and unnoticeable scars.
FaceTite can provide improvements to the following areas:
- Submental fat (double chin)
- Loose, crepey neck skin
Are You A Good Candidate For FaceTite?
FaceTite is an innovative, powerful cosmetic treatment for nearly anyone up-happy with loose, sagging facial and neck tissues. Ideally, patients looking to undergo this procedure should be in good physical health and have realistic expectations for their results following a treatment.
During your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Huynh, he will listen to your primary concerns and provide feedback and recommendations about ways he believes will be best to help you reach your aesthetic goals. Once he’s confirmed that FaceTite is the right procedure for you, he’ll ask questions about your general health, what medications you’re currently taking, and your history of illnesses to ensure you’re the best candidate.
Dr. Huynh does require that patients are not currently smoking at the time of their procedure. They should have quit smoking 3 weeks prior to their surgery and continue to refrain from smoking 3 weeks after their procedure as tobacco can impair the recovery process.
How Is A FaceTite Procedure Performed?
The FaceTite procedure is performed by Dr. Huynh in his state-of-the-art facility using local anesthesia with mild sedation. Through small incisions, Dr. Huynh will place a tumescent solution containing saltwater and lidocaine/epinephrine into the targeted areas of the face. The tumescent solution provides the firmness to the tissues, while the lidocaine is provided for pain relief. Once the tissues are numb, Dr. Huynh uses the FaceTite handpiece to heat the tissues at a predetermined temperature that is optimal for melting away stubborn fat and tightening the tissues, while also minimizing the risk of skin burns. After all of the target areas have been treated, Dr. Huynh will remove any excess fat with small liposuction cannulas.

What To Expect After A FaceTite Procedure?
The entire procedure can take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours to complete. You will notice some redness, swelling, and bruising around the incision sites that should dissipate after a few days post-procedure. You’ll also notice a significant improvement in your facial contours right away due to the fat reduction which will only improve as swelling goes down. Dr. Huynh will give you explicit instructions to follow while you recover, including how to treat your incision to avoid infection. It’s important that you avoid direct sun exposure while healing and wear sunscreen everyday to prevent scars from darkening.
Normal activities and sedentary work can be resumed within a few days. Cardio activities and heavy lifting should be limited for the first 3 weeks after your procedures, and approved by Dr. Huynh before resumed. Most people are able to return to work after 3-5 days. You will have some degree of swelling that may take up to 3 months to resolve. Additionally, with FaceTite, you will continue to see improvements and skin contraction for months following your procedure.
