Fractora™, FaceTite™, or Facelift: Which Is Best for Your Aging Concerns?
The visible signs of facial aging are a significant concern for many individuals, and the fear of aging is one of the main reasons that people consider facial cosmetic procedures.Since every person experiences aging at different levels, the removal of these signs can never be accomplished through a one-size-fits-all method. Dr. Corbin offers a series of facial cosmetic procedures to address wrinkles, volume loss, pigment irregularities, and textural concerns. These procedures vary in technique and invasiveness, allowing every patient to find the best technique for their concern at the level of invasiveness they feel comfortable with.
Non-surgical Facial Rejuvenation
Many men and women are interested in tightening their facial skin but are concerned about the prospect of invasive surgery. Non-surgical rejuvenation with Fractora™ uses pin-based radiofrequency energy. Fractora™ presses a needle-tipped handpiece across the treatment area, where the needles gentle puncture the skin. Radiofrequency (RF) energy is delivered under the skin to stimulate collagen production through these punctures. The RF energy causes the skin to tighten and the tissues to fill in any damaged areas.
Candidates for Fractora™
Unlike other procedures that are only designed to tighten the skin or restore facial volume, Fractora™ allows for the minimization of fine lines and wrinkles and the improvement in tone and texture irregularities. This service addresses sun damage, pigmented areas, and acne scars.
Minimally Invasive Facial Rejuvenation
RFAL™ by InMode FaceTite™ offers minimally invasive skin tightening. Like Fractora™, FaceTite™ relies on the power of RF energy. Unlike Fractora™, however, this procedure requires a small incision, which makes it minimally invasive. This procedure uses thermal energy to tighten skin and reduce fat on the face and neck. Using radiofrequency-assisted liposuction, FaceTite™ improves the appearance of the chin, jowls, and neck. The RF waves liquefy unwanted fat and stimulate collagen growth, which provides the skin with youthful tautness. Once the incision is made, the small FaceTite™ probe is inserted under the skin, and the radiofrequency heatwaves are distributed across the treatment area. Skin that is treated with FaceTite™ becomes smoother, tighter, and more toned.
Candidates for FaceTite™
Since this procedure tightens skin and reduces fat pockets, it is ideal for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity with excess fat deposits below the chin. The FaceTite™ does not require general anesthesia, and the recovery is a fraction of what facelift surgery is. Most patients can return to their regular activities within one or two days of the treatment.
Combining Facetite™ and Fractora™
In many cases, both Facetite™ and Fractora™ can be combined to create an even more comprehensive non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Performing both services at the same time means you cut down on an already minimal recovery time.
Surgical Facial Rejuvenation
Face Lift Before and After
Facelift surgery is the most invasive facial rejuvenation option, but it also allows for the most extensive correction. Dr. Corbin performs facelift surgery with the help of an endoscope, which allows the procedure to be less painful and less damaging. An endoscopic facelift begins with an incision in the hairline through which a small camera (endoscope) is inserted. This camera allows Dr. Corbin to have an unobstructed view of the tissues without extensive incisions. The tissues are manipulated and repositioned in the face and neck. This technique tightens and redefines the contour of the lower face, jawline, and neck.
Candidates for Facelift Surgery
Men and women with a higher degree of facial laxity are not always candidates for non-surgical or minimally invasive procedures.
