The Facetite treatment allows for dramatic improvements in the age or weight-loss related sagging of the lower face and neck, with simultaneous reduction of under-chin fat. The improvement seen in most patients through this minimally invasive office procedure was previously only possible through surgery such as a facelift. Facetite (and its related treatment for the body, Bodytite) utilizes radio-frequency energy, delivered both above and below the skin and tissues, to eliminate fat and tighten skin without scars. Our research and experience so far have shown a dramatic improvement of up to 40% skin tightening.
Facetite is a minimally invasive office treatment that usually takes no more than 30-45 minutes. There is minimal recovery and patients are usually able to return to work the next day. Improvement is immediate but will continue to progress for 3-6 months as more collagen and elastin are produced in response to the treatment.
Facetite is usually performed under local anesthesia, and occasionally this is supplemented with light oral sedation. When combined with other procedures, it may also be done under general anesthesia or in the recovery area after your surgery.
"Bridget and Amanda made a super weird and uncomfortable procedure quite easy! I was really nervous, but their calming manner and conversation relaxed me. The Geneveve treatment was completely painless and there was no down time. My significant other thoroughly enjoys the results as well."- K.M. / Yellowpages / Jun 26, 2017
"Five Stars - Dr. Armando Soto did a wonderful job on my Breast Augmentation. I was a bit nervous but he made me feel right at home. He has a wonderful personality and he is very knowledgeable about his procedures. The staff was wonderful from Amanda to Kelly and the front desk, just awesome people. I would recommend Dr. Soto to all of my friends and family. Thank you, Dr. Soto, for giving me a chance to look and feel great again."- Anonymous / Vitals / Feb 13, 2018
"Five Stars - I could not have found a better place to have my breast augmentation done. After having several children and nursing, I was unhappy with what my breasts looked like. I was nervous to have them done but wanted it. I do not know if I would have done it through another office. Dr. Soto and his staff were amazing. They answered all of my questions and I have never met a doctor with better bedside manners! I am thrilled beyond words with my results! I recommend Dr. Soto to all of my friends looking into breast augmentation."- Anonymous / Vitals / Feb 08, 2018
"Very happy with my results from Dr. Soto. Staff are all friendly and made me feel comfortable each visit. 10/10 would get another surgery from Dr. Soto and his team."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Feb 08, 2018
"My experience with Dr. Soto and his team has been amazing. He was so respectful and caring throughout. From consultation, pre-op, surgery day, and post-op. I was having a revision and he took all the steps to make me happy. My mom was very impressed that he took the time to talk to her, not only once but twice, after my surgery while I was recovering. Thank you to his nurses, both Amanda and Sarah, for always being amazing and making each appointment enjoyable. Thank you, Dr. Soto! I would easily recommend you and your team to anyone I know."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Feb 07, 2018
Before your Facetite procedure, Dr. Soto will mark the area(s) to be treated, and you will be photographed. Once the anesthetic is administered, awake patients usually feel only a bit of warmth that is not unpleasant. Once the treatment has been completed, your skin will be cleansed and you will be placed in the appropriate support garment, to be worn 24 hours a day for the first few days (Dr. Soto will advise you based on your treatment and tissue composition). Most patients experience minimal swelling, minimal to no bruising, and mild tenderness in the treated areas for a few days to a week. Return to normal social activities is possible for most patients after 48 hours. You will see improvement almost immediately- but because the primary benefit of the treatment is the longer term increase in collagen and elastin production, your improvement and tightening will continue to improve and progress over the next 3-6 months.
Plan Your Procedure
- Average Cost
- $3,500 - $5,000
How Much Does it cost ?
Treatment costs will vary according to total treatment time, the type of anesthesia used, and whether or not the procedure is combined with other treatments.
Replacement for Surgery ?
In some areas and for some patients, Facetite does represent an excellent alternative to surgery in the sense that these carefully selected patients will achieve an improvement comparable to what they could expect through surgery- but without having surgery, without long scars, and with much less expense. For other patients, Facetite will represent a compromise- meaning that the improvement may not be quite as dramatic or smooth as they could have achieved through surgery, but because it is much less expensive and offers the significant advantages of no scars and minimal recovery, is preferable for them.
Who performs the surgery ?
Dr. Soto performs all Facetite procedures personally.
Can I combine procedures ?
Absolutely. To best understand what to expect and whether the combination you are interested in is possible for you, visit Dr. Soto for a consultation.
