The best skin tightening treatment for jowls & under the chin
Facetite precisely tightens skin and removes the little fat pockets (permanently).
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (or RFAL for short) is a relatively new, FDA-approved, minimally invasive procedure in which thermal energy is used to remove unwanted fat and tighten the skin.
Differences between AccuTite, BodyTite & FaceTite
AccuTite is the smallest minimally invasive radio frequency contraction device out there. Designed by InMode, AccuTite is used to treat delicate areas of the face including the nasolabial folds (smile lines or laugh lines), lower face, and neck. AccuTite also provides pinpoint accuracy for treating the brows and the periorbital area (e.g. the area between a patient’s upper and mid-face). Some patients use AccuTite to correct the appearance of aging hands and knees.
How does FaceTite work?
Before the procedure, the area is numbed with local anesthesia. CSLC offers those who need additional comfort in-office nitrous oxide or “laughing gas.” Once the treatment area is numb, a small skin opening is made and the radiofrequency transmitting electrode is inserted which heats the skin externally and internally at the same time. This device features multiple built-in sensors to ensure that the treatment area doesn’t get too hot.
Once the FaceTite wand is in, Dr. Lo moves it back and forth to evenly heat the lower face and jowl area, neck, and under the chin. The heat gently melts and remodels stubborn fat cells and sagging skin. FaceTite takes about 30-45 minutes, from start to finish.

FaceTite Frequently Asked Questions
FaceTite uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis and is a minimally invasive treatment to tighten skin and reduce fat simultaneously. The three types of radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis treatments are BodyTite, FaceTite and AccuTite.

Discomfort is minimal during and after the procedure. To ensure patient comfort, CSLC FaceTite patients receive a local anesthetic before their procedure. Those who need additional pain relief can request Pronox (“laughing gas”). After treatment, the area will be sore, puffy, and possibly bruised for up to one week.
While laser liposuction (Smartlipo) can offer more dramatic fat reduction, BodyTite successfully targets fat reduction in places that are more difficult to reach (e.g. bra fat or the upper arms) while providing superior skin tightening.
Many patients aren’t ready for a surgical facelift, whether it’s because of age or safety concerns. FaceTite tightens the skin and reduces jowls and sagging cheeks with less downtime and risk than a surgical facelift. Even younger patients with round faces will love the V-shape results of their face after FaceTite. People who are starting to see structural drooping due to age-related collagen loss may also be good candidates for treatment.
Patients can expect some mild bruising and swelling, although not nearly as much as a facelift. When patients choose to enhance their results with a Morpheus8 treatment, they can expect to experience a bit of puffiness, depending on the level of treatment. FaceTite and AccuTite can cause mild temporary bruising.
Patients who combine FaceTite, AccuTite, or BodyTite with Morpheus8 or Morpheus8 body see even more dramatic results, better body and face tightening, and facial lifting.
Patients can expect to see noticeable skin tightening in just one treatment, with continued tightening and contouring up to 12 months post-treatment. FaceTite results last an average of three to five years.
