FaceTite ™ is a minimally invasive radiofrequency device for skin tightening of the face and neck. The FaceTite ™ device heats the tissues from within the skin to reduce fat and tighten skin.
What is FaceTite?
FaceTite ™ is a minimally invasive radiofrequency device for skin tightening and fat reduction. FaceTite ™ has become a hugely popular treatment worldwide. FaceTite ™ can be used for many areas of the face such as the neck, jawline, chin and eyes. The AccuTite ™ probe is smaller than the FaceTite ™ and used for more delicate areas such as around the eyes and nasolabial folds.
How does FaceTite work?
The FaceTite ™ device uses a small fine probe that is passed underneath the skin using a small incision. This heats the tissues from within to cause shrinkage of fat and tightening of the skin. The machine is able to monitor and limit the temperature of the tissues and skin to ensure that it delivers a safe and effective amount of heat.
FaceTite ™ can be combined with other procedures such as a mini Facelift or blepharoplasty to improve the overall appearance of the procedure. We would also often use Morpheus8 in combination with a FaceTite ™ procedure.
What are the risks of FaceTite?
FaceTite ™ is usually performed under local anaesthetic. The procedure may be combined with some liposuction or a mini facelift procedure. The potential risks and complications include:
