FaceTite™ in Virginia Beach
FaceTite™ is a revolutionary, minimally-invasive procedure that provides the same results as a mini-face lift without the invasiveness of surgery or its after effects – such as scarring or stitches. FaceTite™ is a state-of-the-art treatment that utilizes the technology of radiofrequency to reinvigorate and tone skin with just one treatment. FaceTite™ will take years off your face and neck, restoring the youthful elasticity of the skin, giving you a lifted, youthful, radiant appearance.
What is FaceTite™?
As we age, environmental damage, our genetic makeup, lifestyle choices like smoking and alcohol consumption, and the aging process all begin to take a toll on our skin. This can cause deep wrinkles to form on face and neck, and the skin to sag and droop. If you want to refresh your appearance but aren't ready to commit to the surgery and downtime required of a standard facelift, Dr. Kaado's FaceTite may provide the skin rejuvenation treatment you are looking for with arguably the best results in treatments for anti-aging Virginia Beach has to offer.
Non-Surgical, Non-Invasive Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
FaceTite™ is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure conducted through the use of computer controlled application of radiofrequency energy to tighten and reinvigorate the skin of the face and neck. It is performed under local anesthetic, so you won't feel any discomfort during the procedure.
FaceTite™ is a facial contouring solution that can produce dramatic improvements in facial appearance, often compared to results achieved with a facelift – but without surgery. Take years off your look with this groundbreaking technology to tighten and firm your facial skin. This process can be completed in less than an hour, with instantly visible results. Once the procedure is complete, you will continue to notice improvements in the elasticity, tone and texture for 3-8 weeks.
Benefits of FaceTite™
Almost any area above the shoulders can be significantly enhanced with this state-of-the-art aesthetic treatment, and is an ideal way to treat the sagging or aging skin in areas such as:
- Forehead (non-surgical brow lift)
- Naso-labial folds (nose to mouth)
Is FaceTite™ Safe?
Because FaceTite™ is a non-surgical procedure, it is considered to be one of the safest procedures for facial rejuvenation practiced today. The radiofrequency used to rejuvenate the skin is the same that's used in MRIs, Thermage, and other procedures that have been safely conducted for decades.
The FaceTite system provides Dr Kaado with constant feedback in order to monitor and maintain the amount of RF Energy and heat used during a procedure and has many in built-in safety features. Patient safety is always paramount.
Since there is very little downtime with FaceTite™, and there are no large incisions requiring the facial muscles to be repositioned, no healing from surgical procedures, and no scarring, FaceTite has many benefits. Men and women seeking Dr. Kaado's FaceTite procedure will experience vibrant, almost instant results without having to endure the recovery time associated with surgery and still give you some of the most amazing results for anti-aging Virginia Beach has available.
What to Expect with FaceTite™
Since FaceTite™ is minimally invasive, there is minimal downtime following the procedure. FaceTite™ uses a very fine needle to conduct radiofrequency in to the layers of the dermis to apply heat energy. You can expect to have a bit of swelling following the procedure, this is partly attributed to the lidocaine injections used to numb the face prior to treatment. Your skin will be tender to the touch. Any inflammation you experience will be temporary and can be accompanied by redness and light bruising. This should subside within 7 to 10 days following your procedure.
Are there Risks Associated with FaceTite™?
Like all minimally-invasive procedures, FaceTite™ does carry a few risks of which you should be aware. Since radiofrequency is delivered sub-dermally using a very fine needle, there is a small risk of nerve damage following the procedure.
This, however, is a rare side effect for FaceTite™ and the nerve will recover after few months. The risks diminish significantly when the procedure is performed by our laser expert Dr. Kaado. During recovery from the procedure, patients may experience a mild numbing sensation if the nerves are bruised during the process, but this bruising will subside over a period of 6 to 8 weeks following the FaceTite™ procedure.

Instant Face Lift
The FaceTite™ procedure causes the skin to tighten by 40% instantly. The skin will look and feel better immediately, and though the results are instant there will be some swelling for approximately seven days afterwards. Over a period of three to six weeks as new collagen is formed there will be a continuous improvement.
The FaceTite™ hand-piece is designed to be minimally invasive creating skin tightening with virtually no scarring and no stitches required, this makes the recovery process even quicker.
FaceTite™ recovery time
Because the FaceTite™ system is minimally invasive, using only a small needle to apply heating energy, recovery time is nominal. Expect to be tender and swollen for at least 5 days. Most patients are usually back to work within 7-10 days. Prior to the treatment, Dr. Kaado and his staff will outline all necessary precautions, but most patients can resume normal activities within a few days of the procedure.
How long does FaceTite™ last?
The treatment result from FaceTite™ will last up to about five years, similar to a mini Face Lift™ and thereafter the skin will age naturally, though genetics and lifestyle may affect the lifespan of the FaceTite™ or any other Face Lift procedure.
Is FaceTite™ painful?
No. A local anesthetic is administered which reduces discomfort to minimal levels. As with BodyTite™ – FaceTite™ does not require a general anesthetic which reduces downtime. No overnight stay is required, and treatments can be performed within the day.
Is one treatment enough?
For most patients one treatment is all that is needed, although it depends upon the level of skin laxity and your desired results.
Can FaceTite™ be used with BodyTite™?
Yes, BodyTite™ uses aspiration and produces different results than FaceTite™ but the procedures can be used in conjunction with each other or alone. This will be discussed at your FaceTite™ consultation with our cosmetic doctor of medicine, who will advise whether a combination of treatments may be the best option and whether these treatments can be performed in combination or in separate procedures.
FaceTite™ RF Technology
FaceTite™ uses the same technology as is used in BodyTite™, called RFAL™ (Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction) except with FaceTite™ there is no aspiration, so the technology used is RF – Radio Frequency.
RF or Radio frequency is used in MRI machines and many other medical treatments and has been used to treat patients for over 75 years. FaceTite™ is the facial cosmetic surgery revolution that brings this proven technology to cosmetic surgery.
How It Works
The FaceTite™ handpiece delivers RFAL energy from an internal cannula to an external electrode, generating focused energy into the adipose tissue and fatty areas. The directional application of RFAL is precise and controlled to heat-specific targets without thermal injury to surrounding tissue. Furthermore, the geometric design of the handpiece and size of the electrodes provides an exact science to how much heat is generated on the skin’s surface, preventing unwanted thermal build-up.
The innovative development of a simultaneous aspiration-coagulation handpiece removes the hot liquefied adipose tissue (fatty deposits) immediately, allowing the FaceTite™ to become a one-step procedure providing a quicker treatment, at least 4 times faster than other laser assisted devices.
You will be thrilled with the substantial fat reduction and body firming results. If you have aging skin that has become lax, but do not want to undergo facial surgery or risk an uneven result with facial liposuction appreciate the dramatic improvements achieved with FaceTite.
