THE “LIQUID face-lift” was supposed to change everything. Using filler to rescaffold sagging skin seemed like a bright idea: It was cheaper and less invasive than surgery. The problem is, “fillers don’t actually lift the skin; they just push it outward,” says Paul Jarrod Frank, M.D., a New York dermatologist. Keep filling, “and that’s how people end up looking like Cabbage Patch Dolls.” The answer? Less invasive procedures that can buy you time (and cost a fraction of the price).
For faces that need more sculpting, Frank is excited about FaceTite and AccuTite. Performed under local anesthesia, both procedures use a radio frequency wand that goes beneath the skin to remodel tissue, destroy fat, and tighten skin. FaceTite is better for larger areas: It can resculpt a full neck or a sagging jawline, which more of Frank’s patients are paying attention to (and can’t be addressed with filler). AccuTite is great for detail work, such as targeting fat pads above the nasolabial folds or a droopy eye area, he says. “Think of it like micro liposuction for the face. @inmodeaesthetics #harpersbazaar #harpersbazarus #facetite #bodytite #accutite #hotttreatments #gigihadid #skintightening #pfrankmd
