FaceTite Skin Tightening and Facial Sculpting
FaceTite Skin Tightening and Facial Sculpting is the new anti-aging solution for loose skin in Montgomery, Alabama. Looking younger have never been so easy. Dr. Nizam is pleased to offer the latest innovative skin tightening treatment to improve skin laxity to the face at Alabama Surgical Arts.
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite is an FDA approved technology that uses Radio Frequency Assisted Lipolysis to help patients achieve an aesthetically improved appearance. A local anesthetic solution is placed under the skin to numb the area. Dr. Nizam then places a small probe beneath the skin. The probe delivers a controlled amount of heat to the tissue, causing the skin to contract and tighten. This procedure has been proven to be effective in providing internal and external break down of fat in the skin. The result is a smoother, more contoured appearance that leaves you looking rejuvenated!
Benefits of Treatment
- Hidden probe insertion sites.
- No visible marks on your skin.
- FaceTite is an FDA approved technology.

- Great for people who have mild excess skin and fatty tissue to the lower face.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Any areas on the face and neck with saggy skin can be treated. This includes double chin, jowls and any other areas on the face with deep lines and loose skin.
Whom is a candidate
Ideal candidates are the following:
1. Excess fullness in the lower face and neck whom are not yet facelift candidates.
2. Younger patients looking to sculpt and define their lower face and neck
3. Prior facelift patients with a small amount of relapse .
4. Facelift candidates whom refuse traditional excisional surgery and accept improvement over correction.
Prior to surgery, Dr. Nizam and you will discuss the goals for facial improvement. After determining the appropriate procedure, we will fully describe the procedure, what results to expect and the costs. The skin is usually pre-treated prior to surgery with an intense medical grade skin care regimen to improve the healing time and result.
The EMBRACE Procedure
The treatment area is cleansed and draped. Depending on what procedures are being performed simultaneously and patient preference a light sedation to full general anesthesia may be selected. Numbing fluid is placed under the skin. Dr. Nizam makes a probe insertion site typically behind the ears and under the chin to access the areas of your skin imperfections. The technology behind FaceTite by InMode has a built-in safety mechanism that takes real time measurements of impedance and skin temperature. It also has a power cut off feature. This helps to avoid burns and other complications. Dr. Nizam and his team are trained to use FaceTite safely and effectively. FaceTite is typically also combined with RF microneedling and submental liposuction for the best results.
What can be expected?
Social downtime can be expected to be anywhere around 7-10 days for swelling to resolve. Patients may experience slight discomfort in the treated areas. A compression garment will be in place and worn for 7 days. Results can be appreciated immediately with best results noticeable after 6 months, continuing up to 1 year. There are no incisions made so there are no sutures to be removed. This procedure does not take place of a face and neck lift if one was recommended to you during your consultation. Expectations by the patient must be realistic, and results should be anticipated as improvements rather than total corrections. Results of the procedure depend on many factors such as the size, shape and location of the imperfection and the patient’s heredity, age and general skin condition.
