Part of the body's natural aging process includes the slowing of collagen and elastin production in the skin. The end result is more visible creases, wrinkles, and lines, as well as loose skin on the jowls, chin, and neck. To combat these symptoms of aging, Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery offers FaceTite. This premier nonsurgical procedure recommended by cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. William Vinyard uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis to heat up and dislodge cells, causing the skin to tighten and allowing collagen to be produced at a much quicker rate. It is possible to enjoy a tighter, more youthful facial appearance that has fewer wrinkles without dealing with the invasiveness and downtime associated with lifting surgeries. We encourage you to schedule a consultation at our Port Saint Lucie, FL practice to learn more about FaceTite and its benefits.
AccuTite by InMode is a small handheld device that is used to treat very precise areas on the face to produce the best results possible. This unique system uses a double-sided probe or cannula to deliver advanced radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to the external and internal areas of the skin. This technique basically shrink-wraps the skin to attain a tighter contour and targets stubborn fat pockets for a slimmer profile.

"After being diagnosed with Breast Cancer last year at 39, I knew immediately I would opt for a double mastectomy. I was unsure about reconstruction, but my oncology surgeon, who also happens to be a trusted friend of mine, highly recommended Dr. Vinyard. He assured me I would have a positive experience and insisted I consult with him before making a decision. I am so glad I followed his advice. At my initial consult, I immediately felt at ease, Dr. Vinyard explained the procedure, my options and his recommendation for the best possible outcome. He was a wealth of knowledge explaining in detail what to expect and answered all of my questions, I never felt rushed. He is a perfectionist and meticulous with attention to every detail.

FaceTite is generally a great choice to treat smaller, more delicate areas, such as the lines that form around the mouth and under the eyes, as well as the loose skin on the chin and neck area. You are an ideal candidate for this procedure if you're experiencing classic signs of aging and wish for an improvement in collagen production for tighter skin. In order to receive this treatment, you should not be pregnant or have had cosmetic injections performed within the last 6 – 8 months. A consultation with Dr. Vinyard may better help you learn whether you qualify for this procedure.
This aesthetic treatment utilizes a minimally invasive technique that involves inserting a very small cannula beneath your skin while using local anesthesia. Once the cannula is placed, the temperature can be monitored and controlled via internal and external thermometers to make sure the heat remains at a comfortable level. The radiofrequency energy the FaceTite device emits will be effective in minimizing fat cells and will also cause the skin to contract, creating an increase in collagen production. Sessions typically last around 45 minutes per treated area.
What to Expect
After a FaceTite procedure, you will be asked to return home to rest for the remainder of the day wearing a compression garment. You should be able to return to your daily routine by the next day. It can take around three days for any redness or swelling to subside. Strenuous activities and exercises should still be avoided for approximately 1 – 2 weeks following the procedure. Patients will usually notice some visible results after their FaceTite treatment. However, because the procedure involves stimulating the collagen process, you will see more gradual improvements for around 3 – 8 weeks afterward. Your results will be long-lasting if you keep a healthy weight through proper diet and exercise.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does FaceTite cost?
The cost of FaceTite will rely on the severity of your condition among other factors. During your initial visit, Dr. Vinyard will go over your concerns and cosmetic goals. From there, he can better estimate your costs. VIPS accepts many forms of payment and can help you find low-interest financing.
What about a surgical facelift?
At VIPS, we offer an extensive list of surgical options to help address mild to severe facial lines, wrinkles, loose skin, and stubborn fat pockets. Some of our most popular procedures include facelifts and liposuction. However, if you are not ready for a surgical procedure, then FaceTite may be best for you.
Can BOTOX or fillers help?
Many of our patients opt to include a wrinkle relaxer, like BOTOX, or a dermal filler in their treatment plan to gain even more dramatic results. Usually, FaceTite is performed first and then you will be scheduled to return at a later time for your injectable treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, most patients experience noticeable results after just one treatment, but in some cases, another treatment may be needed to attain the outcomes they desire. When Dr. Vinyard performs a physical assessment of your face, he can make a recommendation of how many treatments you may need.
How long will my results last?
On average, great results can be seen after your treatment and will continue to improve in the next 3 – 6 months with the best results being seen around week 12. These outcomes are long-lasting, but it's important to maintain a healthy lifestyle as weight gain can alter your results.
