Facetite – Skin Tightening without the Scars

FaceTite is a relatively new surgical technique designed to reduce skin laxity on the face and neck.  Traditionally, skin tightening was previously achieved through more invasive procedures, such as a facelift or a neck lift. FaceTite utilizes minimally invasive radio-frequency energy to smooth and tighten skin.


By avoiding a facelift excisional procedure, patients will be scar free and will benefit from reduced post-procedural swelling and discomfort. This is a less traumatic process with a natural looking final result.


Patients should not expect tightening like that of an excisional surgical result (i.e. a face lift or a lower face and neck lift).  The direct removal of skin will always produce a tighter result, and Dr. Hughes always makes this point crystal clear.

Results can be seen immediately following resolution of swelling, with best results seen in 3 to 6 months.


Any areas on the face and neck with saggy skin can be treated. This includes the double chin, the neck, the jowls, the jawline and mandible, and marionette lines as well as other areas with deep lines and loose skin.


FaceTite is a minimally-invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia or light sedation. Post procedure, patient can go home and resume regular activities shortly after.

Wearing a compression garment is required for best results.

What is Different about Facetite compared to Smartlipo, Laserlipo, Vaserlipo, etc.?

Facetite utilizes a radiofrequency model that is unique to these devices.  Each of the devices is bipolar, in which energy oscillates between the two poles to increase energy delivery and efficiency. In addition, the energy is better contained and results in fewer and smaller burns, if any, compared to the older monopolar devices like smart lipo, laser lipo, vaser lipo, and the great numbers of others with older technology.  Although it is tempting to lump all technological advances together and categorize them as the same, this is one case in which patients and surgeons alike would be foolish to designate these technologies as the same or equal.

What Separates the Facetite Results of Dr. Hughes from those of other plastic surgeons?

It is not just the technology but how that technology is utilized, which results in the phenomenal results seen in Dr. Hughes’s before and after Facetite gallery.  Dr. Hughes in Los Angeles received patients from all over the US and all over the world to obtain his expertise in facetite procedures and for difficult skin laxity and liposuction revision procedures that were considered by many other surgeons to be UNCORRECTABLE.  There is hope for these deformities, and Dr. Hughes in Los Angeles is bringing hope to patients every day with these facetite procedures for revision surgery.

Share Your Opinion Of Dr. Kenneth B. Hughes

After searching for months for the perfect Dr, I came across Dr Hughes. He's so kind and honest! He responds to all my emails within a short period of time. (I send him a lot of questions, trust me) I'm 5'3 about 115. Pretty petite frame but he was able to put 960 cc into each cheek and also added some fat into my hips. Which I think is ammmmazing. I didn't think I had that much fat for him to transfer. With the aggressive lipo he is known for I had very little bruising and I felt fine 3 days post op! I'm so in love with my new butt and tiny waist, it's perfect!
