FaceTite is a scalpel-free, scarless surgery that provides a dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck.
— Dr. Mark Anton, Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon
While FaceTite has been available in Europe and Canada for many years, it only recently received FDA approval in the states. Since being introduced to the U.S., FaceTite is quickly becoming one of the most requested procedures by men and women desiring a more youthful appearance without undergoing a more traditional facelift or neck lift surgery.
FaceTite is done in the office under a local anesthetic and requires less downtime than a facelift. The results are dramatic, yet natural. FaceTite can best be described as “shrinkwrap” for the tissues. Using radio-frequency (RF) technology, the surgeon places a small probe beneath the skin that heats the tissues causing them to contract and tighten. FaceTite can be combined with liposuction in the jowls and neck areas to achieve more contouring and a more overall youthful appearance.
For our Newport Beach FaceTite patients seeking total facial rejuvenation, Injectables can replace lost volume and contours in the temples, cheeks, lips, and jawline area. All our FaceTite packages include your home care products from our medical-grade skincare line, CORE, by Anton MD.
CORE stands for Correct, Optimize, Renew and Exfoliate. During your surgical consultation with Dr. Anton, your beauty concerns will be addressed along with other considerations such as budget, available recovery time, lifestyle, plus long and short-term aesthetic goals.
Treated area(s) is numbed with a topical numbing cream for 30 minutes before the treatment begins. During this time, an oral sedative is administered to prepare you for the procedure. Our aesthetic nurse then injects a light sedative before further administering a tumescent anesthetic.
Dr. Anton then creates a small incision at the back of the jawline for the FaceTite probe to be placed beneath the skin. This incision will not require any sutures or leave any scars. Patients find the procedure to be very comfortable.
You do not feel the probe as it moves beneath the surface of the skin, but you will be awake enough to be aware and communicate if necessary. Once Dr. Anton completes the FaceTite, our aesthetic nurse follows up with Fractora for tightening and resurfacing. Our Newport Beach FaceTite patients will require a driver to safely get them home. Note: Patients with a history of cold sores will be proactively treated pre and postoperatively with prescription medication.
People who suffer from loose, sagging or wrinkled skin in the jowls, neck, cheeks and perioral area. FaceTite is safe for all skin types on Fitzpatrick Scale and can be the ideal surgery for anyone who is experiencing facial aging but is not ready for a facelift, or anyone who has had a facelift and would like to maintain their youthful appearance without additional surgery.
Your tighter, younger-looking skin can stay that way for years to come with optimal results lasting 3-5 years.
Of course, the aging process never stops so to maintain the great results you get with the FaceTite package, limit sun exposure, protect your skin with a physical sunblock, use the CORE skincare products daily at home and purchase one of the recommended maintenance packages to stimulate collagen and elastin.
There will be a dramatic and significant improvement in skin laxity following recovery that will continue to improve for up to 12 weeks following the procedure. Once the swelling has subsided and Fractora scabs healed, your follow up Lumecca treatment will be scheduled to brighten and polish the skin and address any irregular pigmentation. Injectables can also be scheduled at this appointment.

Significant swelling typically occurs on the second day and can last up to 10 days post-op. Small scabs form where the Fractora needles penetrated the skin and flake off between days 5-10. Our Newport Beach FaceTite patients must wear a headwrap at all times days 1-5 and at night days 5-10 to help reduce swelling. Sunscreen must be worn at all times during and after recovery whenever skin is exposed to sunlight, including indirect sunlight such as driving.
