What is FaceTite?
Part of the body's natural aging process is the slowing of collagen and elastin production in the epidermis. The result is much more visible creases, wrinkles, and lines, in addition to loose skin on the neck, jowls, and chin. To fight these symptoms of aging, Nuveau Plastic Surgery provides FaceTite. This exciting nonsurgical procedure, recommended by Dr. Edward Lee, uses radiofrequency-guided lipolysis to melt and dislodge fat cells, causing the skin to tighten and allowing collagen to be created at a faster rate. It's possible to enjoy a tighter, more youthful facial appearance that presents with fewer wrinkles without dealing with the invasiveness and downtime from lifting operations. We encourage you to schedule an appointment in our Houston, TX office to find out more about FaceTite and its amazing benefits.
At Nuveau Plastic Surgery, Dr. Lee and his team also provide AccuTite for small, precise areas of the face. AccuTite is a separate handpiece utilized on the same FaceTite technology. As the smallest, minimally invasive radiofrequency device, AccuTite is great for targeting delicate areas. During your initial consultation, Dr. Lee will determine if FaceTite, AccuTite, or a combination of the two is ideal for you.
"Dr. Lee is very personable! He is always very thoughtful and kind. If you are looking to get a procedure done, he will be able to kindly guide you through the process. Very seldom do you meet a doctor who is as considerate and relational as Dr. Lee!"- J.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2017

"I just happen to run across Dr. Lee on the internet searching for a Dr. to do a breast augmentation and possible tummy tuck. Had never even considered having this before and was very nervous. Went to one other consultation with another Dr. in the Houston area and found out he was actually only a dermatologist and wasn’t board certified in plastic surgery. I decided to get another quote and I am so glad that I did. Even though I lost $500 dollars that I had put down with t...he first Dr.. i let Dr. Lee know what it was that I was looking for and he let me know right away what I needed. He could have charged me more and even could have said that I needed more than what I did but he did not. He did not have to do a lift on me for my breast and he did not have to do lipo in me either and in both cases he could have told me I needed this and I would not have known the difference - but he didn’t. I was impressed with the fact that he has been doing this for only 7 years would be up to date on the procedures and possible new ways of doing these procedures rather than a dr that had been doing this for 20 plus years. Dr. Lee was worried due to the fact that I was a smoker. He almost seemed as if he may not even be interested in doing my surgery due to this fact. That was even impressive. He could have cared less and just seen dollar signs but he didn’t. I let him know I was super serious about this and would stop immediately if he would get me right in to do surgery so that I wouldn’t change my mind like I had in the past due to other obligations. He told me I would have to wait 6 weeks and the. He could do the surgery if I stopped smoking then. I promised. He kept his part of the bargain and so did I. I am proud to say that I have now had surgery almost 2 weeks ago and still haven’t smoked. Won’t go back. Thanks to Dr. Lee and Mrs. Eva I won’t go back to smoking. My surgery went flawlessly and the results are amazing. The Dr. knew exactly what I needed and did a perfect job. He eased all of my fears and it went way better than what I expected. Would recommend Dr. Lee to anyone wanting to enhance their looks. They offer a lot of different services and I would let them do any of them on me if I needed. Now Mrs Eva if the Drs right hand in my opinion. She was amazing and could have ignored me because god knows I ask her every question under the sun regarding my procedures and she handled me with nothing but respect. When she didn’t have too. I love her to pieces and she makes you feel so comfortable during the entire process."- M.S. / Facebook / Mar 22, 2020
"10 days post “mommy makeover” and have to write a review because of how smooth the process was and how wonderful Dr. Lee is. Great bedside manner and superb skill level. You can tell he takes pride in his work and strives to get his patients the best possible outcome. Recovery process has been smooth thankfully. I was back to work 1 week post surgery. Also, Dr. Lee really listens to your concerns and works with you as a team. He even called me over Christmas to review a post op concern I had emailed him about. Eva in the office is also wonderful. Highest recommendations!"- D. / Google / Dec 28, 2019

Ideal Candidates For FAcetite
You are a good candidate for this treatment if you're experiencing early signs of aging and want a boost in collagen production to achieve tighter skin. To be able to undergo this treatment, you shouldn't be pregnant or have had facial injections performed within the previous 6 – 8 months. A consultation with Dr. Lee will better help you learn more about your qualification for this procedure.
This cosmetic therapy utilizes a minimally invasive process that involves placing a tiny cannula under your skin while using local anesthesia. Once the cannula is placed, the temperature will be monitored and controlled via external and internal thermometers to make certain the heat stays at a comfortable level. The radiofrequency energy the FaceTite device emits will be effective in attacking fat cells and will also cause the skin to contract, igniting an increase in collagen production. Sessions normally last about 45 minutes per treated area.
What to Expect After FaceTite
Following a FaceTite procedure, you will be sent home to rest and relax for the remainder of the day wearing a compression garment. You will be ready to return to your regular routine by the following day. It might take approximately three days for any discoloration or swelling to fade. Strenuous activities and exercises should be avoided for around two weeks following the treatment. Patients will generally see some visible results directly after their FaceTite therapy. However, since the procedure involves stimulating the collagen process, you will see more gradual improvements for about 3 – 8 weeks afterward. Your results will be long-lasting should you keep a healthy weight through proper diet and exercise.
Plan Your Procedure
Younger, Tighter Skin
Aesthetic surgery procedures, like face and neck lifts, do not have to be your only available option for creating tighter, younger-looking skin. FaceTite, offered by our Houston, TX practice, can tighten skin and address a difficult double chin. It uses special radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis that ignites collagen and contracts the epidermis. Call today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Lee at Nuveau Plastic Surgery.
