About FaceTite

FaceTite is a minimally invasive facelift alternative. It uses a small handpiece inserted through a pinprick in the skin to generate gentle heat in the deep layers. This process causes the collagen and elastin in the skin to contract and regenerate, tightening the skin and improving its quality over time. This makes FaceTite one of the most effective ways to tighten the skin of the face and achieve a younger, more rejuvenated look.

FaceTite can treat the following concerns:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Sagging brow
  • Aging cheeks
  • Loose neck skin
  • Jowls
  • Loose jawline

If your degree of sagging is more severe than moderate, a surgical procedure may be the best option. Dr. Rhett Willis can determine if FaceTite is the best option for your goals during a consultation.

Who is a Candidate?

FaceTite is an excellent option if you’re looking to tighten loose skin but don’t want to undergo a surgical procedure like a facelift. If you’ve already tried non-surgical treatment options like RF microneedling or thread lifts to tighten and lift skin but are no longer seeing the results you want, FaceTite may be a next step in your treatment progression.

At Charlottesville Plastic Surgery, FaceTite is performed in our plastic surgeon-owned and operated medspa. Dr. Willis will discuss your medical history and examine your skin at your consultation to determine the best treatment plan for your unique aesthetic goals.

Dr. Willis did a wonderful job with my surgery. He explained everything very well beforehand so I knew what to expect throughout the process. I would highly recommend Dr. Willis for any plastic surgery procedures. His patient care coordinator Leah is excellent and always available to assist with any questions and concerns.

Dr.Willis and staff are incredible! They treat their patients with such high respect and make you feel right at home during your procedure. They are experienced and dedicated to making things right. You leave the office feeling really good about yourself and the work they’ve performed! I’ve had Fillers and Botox but would recommend anything!

Dr. Willis and Leah have been so great to me in my cosmetic surgery experience. They always answer my questions, they are so kind. I couldn’t see myself going to anyone else.

The FaceTite Treatment

Your FaceTite treatment begins by discussing your aesthetic goals with our team and creating a personalized treatment approach. FaceTite can be performed using a topical anesthetic right at our Charlottesville office. Once you’re comfortable and ready, a tiny applicator is passed through a pin-sized opening in the skin.

The applicator passes along the deep tissues of the skin, administering radiofrequency energy to contract the proteins and connective tissues. At the same time, an exterior part of the handpiece remains on the surface of the skin to monitor temperature and prevent heat damage to the skin. Once the whole area is treated, you can return to your daily activities.


There is minimal recovery after FaceTite. It’s common to experience minor swelling and sensitivity in the treated area for 5-7 days. If you have any discomfort, you can easily manage it with over-the-counter medications. Our team will recommend restrictions on your activity level during this time to prevent swelling. Generally, you can return to your normal activities within 7-10 days.

You may see results right away from treatment, but full results can take around six months to emerge. During this time, you’ll notice the skin gradually tightening and looking more youthful. Most patients achieve excellent results with a single treatment, the results of which can last for years. Dr. Willis and our team can recommend the best corresponding treatments to help maintain your youthful look without surgery or downtime.
