The Role of Subcutaneous Radiofrequency-Assisted Liposculpture in the Facial Plastic Surgeon's Practice.
Facial Plast Surg Aesthet Med
Importance: Percutaneous radiofrequency-based skin tightening procedures can offer patients an option to undergo a potential treatment for skin laxity and excess adipose of the face and neck with less downtime, lower cost, and decreased risk of complications compared with more aggressive open procedures such as neck lift, face and neck lift, and platysmaplasty. Observations: FaceTite and AccuTite can safely yet effectively deliver energy into the subdermal space, targeting the dermal collagen network and deeper fascial layer. Ideal candidates have early jowl formation, mild to moderate skin laxity, and submental adiposity. Relevance & Conclusions: From the perspective of facial plastic surgeons, these procedures can enhance the volume of an aesthetic practice by welcoming patients who may not otherwise present for face and neck rejuvenation out of fear from surgery. Furthermore, many of these minimally invasive patients will ultimately return for surgical rejuvenation later in life.
