FaceTite™ uses RFAL to contour the face and reduce fat pockets (like liposuction). This non-invasive procedure corrects sagging skin, jowls, and loose skin. There is minimal downtime from this procedure when compared to the recovery times of surgical procedures like facelifts and neck lifts for facial rejuvenation.
