What is FaceTite?

FaceTite is one of the most advanced skin rejuvenation procedures available. Utilizing radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin from within, FaceTite can beautifully lift and tone the skin along the lower face and upper neck. This includes the jowls and under-chin area to achieve a more defined neck and jawline.

How FaceTite works

When the radiofrequency heat energy is applied to the underlying tissue of the skin, the tissue responds by immediately repairing itself. This causes the collagen to shrink and begin a re-building process, which in turn tightens the surrounding skin structure. In this way, FaceTite technology tightens the skin from within.

FaceTite treatment details

FaceTite is performed under local and/or light sedation. Treatments are minimally invasive, with no incisions, stitches, or scarring. When you arrive for your FaceTite appointment in Palo Alto, your face will be marked to guide Dr. Hessler. Anesthesia will then be administered via a series of injections. Once the area is numbed, a cannula will be used to create the access points for the handheld FaceTite device to enter.

Cooling jelly will be applied to the skin, and then the treatment will begin. The FaceTite probe is a device that has both internal and external sections so that it can treat the area both deeply and superficially.

Energy is passed between these two sections in a unidirectional flow as the cannula moves easily through the tissues. The device also monitors internal and external temperature throughout the entire treatment, and will automatically stop if the temperature gets too high.

Can FaceTite be performed with other procedures?

If submental fat (excess skin underneath the chin) is present, liposuction is often performed with FaceTite in the Bay Area. If a patient has volume loss of the face, dermal fillers or fat transfer can be performed as well. 


FaceTite patients will need to wear a compression garment for 3 to 4 days after treatment. Strenuous exercise should be avoided during this time to lower the risk of bruising and swelling. Most patients are able to return to work and regular activities 4 to 7 days post-treatment. 


Results may become apparent as early as one week after treatment, although patients should be aware that it takes 3 to 6 months to see full results from a FaceTite procedure.
