Non-Surgical Facelift in Austin

Get a Refresh With Our Minimally Invasive Lower Face and Neck Lift in Austin

Keeping a fresh appearance while aging is a common goal that many people want to achieve. While maintaining a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and keeping a regular skin maintenance routine can help us look well-rested, sometimes we benefit from using other skin rejuvenating methods.

B+A Medical Aesthetics offers non-surgical skin tightening options to help patients achieve an effortless appearance. Our surgeon-operated and owned clinic is the destination for people who want non-surgical facial skin tightening in Austin.

Our practice is led by Dr. Nicole Basa and Dr. Alan Abando. The husband and wife team specializes in aesthetics, as well as general and bariatric surgery. The surgeons and their accomplished patient care associates provide excellent service in a comfortable environment, creating the perfect space for your transformation. 

In this blog, we’ll detail the different types of non-surgical skin tightening techniques we use at B+A Medical Aesthetics to help patients look refreshed.

3 Options for Non-Surgical Facelift in Austin

Patients who choose to work with B+A Medical Aesthetics have three minimally invasive face-tightening options to choose from. Dr. Basa and Dr. Abando are skilled in all these techniques and will ensure you select the procedure that will help you achieve the results you want.


FaceTite is one of our most effective non-surgical skin-firming options for people seeking visible skin tightening results in their lower face and neck.  The process helps tighten aging, tired skin by restoring the skin’s elastin and collagen levels. 


The minimally invasive procedure uses radiofrequency (RF) that works on the subdermal plane by recontouring and contracting your skin’s natural tissues. The single-time treatment lasts 30 to 60 minutes. Patients should plan to have 3 to 7 days of downtime.

How FaceTite Works

FaceTite uses adjustable depth fractional RF energy combined with bipolar RF. When these frequencies are integrated, aging tissue tightens, firms, and recontours.

B+A Medical Aesthetics commonly uses FaceTite to add definition to and sculpt the skin. The procedure can help treat:

  • Skin that has lost its elasticity in the lower face and upper neck
  • Sagging jowls
  • Double chin fat

This gold-standard approach to non-surgical skin tightening offers patients the following benefits:

  • The process is safe and FDA-approved
  • It’s minimally-invasive
  • The procedure require small incisions 
  • No general anesthesia is needed
  • Quick recovery time
  • Customizable for your needs

What Does FaceTite Recovery Look Like?

Patients will need to take some time off work to rest and recover from the minimally invasive procedure. 

During this time, you’ll wear a compression garment throughout the day and night for 3 days. You’ll also need to avoid strenuous exercise to limit swelling and bruising. 

How Quickly Do Patients See Results?

Full results will emerge over time, but people often start seeing changes in their skin’s appearance within a week from the liposuction. The most optimal results are noticed in 3 to 4 months, after the tissue and skin rejuvenates and tightens. Patients typically see results from this procedure for up to 5 years. 

Forma and FormaPlus

FormaPlus is a gentle, effective, and safe facial skin tightening and toning option that uses radiofrequency to treat cellulite and loose skin.

Because FormaPlus stimulates collagen production, patients experience a more youthful appearance and pleasing body contour after a single session.

While FormaPlus is primarily used to help firm skin of the body, Forma is used around the neck and face. Areas we can use FormaPlus are larger regions of the body, including:

  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles

How FormaPlus Works

FormaPlus uses controlled heat and radiofrequency to help stimulate contractions in the skin.

Your provider will place the FormaPlus device on your skin during a session. The device creates a stream of continuous energy that we monitor to ensure your skin isn’t under or overheated. The procedure isn’t painful, and most patients only report feeling a skin-tingling sensation. 

FormaPlus typically takes 30 to 60 minutes per session. After one session, patients commonly see results for 3 to 4 weeks, with long-lasting results developing after multiple sessions. FormaPlus doesn’t require patients to take any downtime after an appointment.

Must I Have a Certain Skin Type for FormaPlus to Work?

FormaPlus is safe for all skin types. Because it’s a minimally invasive procedure, patients don’t have to worry about: 

  • Recovery time
  • Scarring
  • Experiencing significant discomfort


Define is a premier skin tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency to help detail facial features, like the cheeks, neck, and jawline.

How Define Works

Our skilled providers will use the Define device to target areas of your neck and face that you’d like to sculpt. The device’s radiofrequency technology is clinically proven and is able to penetrate the deep layers of skin within facial tissue

Our experienced aesthetician and nurse practitioner use Define to treat: 

  • Double chins
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Skin that’s lost its firmness
  • Areas that need toning or retexturing
  • Jowls
  • Unwanted facial fat

Define’s Skin Sculpting Technology

Define is a non-invasive treatment we provide in our clean, modern aesthetics office. 

Once your provider places the Define device on your face, it delivers RF energy. You’ll experience a warming sensation on your skin and no pain. We compare it to a warm facial.

The 45- to 60-minute treatment requires no downtime and can be accomplished during your lunch break.

Treatment and Results Duration

Patients typically benefit from 6 Define treatments and can expect to see results for up to 3 years. This gentle facial sculpting option works for all skin types and tones.
