Facetite is the most advanced non surgical face contouring and skin tightening treatment available. The procedure is the next best alternative to a facelift, with results very similar to fat or neck lift surgery but without the need for invasive surgery.
The procedure combines a fine cannula under the skin with Radio Frequency to heat underneath the skin and into the skin fatty tissue, resulting in fat contraction and tightening of the skin.
At your consultation, you will be carefully examined by one of our Doctors and a personalised treatment plan will be discussed and arranged. The treatment is done using local anaesthetic so that throughout the treatment you will be comfortable and completely numb.
During the procedure tiny ‘punctures’ are made across either side of the face and under the chin to allow the cannula to reach the deeper layers of the skin. High energy is delivered through the device to effectively heat each area of the face and underneath the skin. If then needed, a gentle liposuction is completed to remove excess fat from the jowls and neck area.
Results can be seen immediately after treatment however the most noticeable and enhanced results are at 6 months post procedure.
Most commonly treated areas include sagging Jowls, double chin, lifting of the cheeks, jawline contouring, removing excess fat, tightening neck skin and improving fine lines & wrinkles.
After your treatment, your doctor will apply small dressings over the small puncture areas. You will be supplied with a compression garment which will be worn for the next three days to help reduce swelling. After three days the garment can then be worn just in the evenings for the next 10-14 days. The swelling and healing process will continue to down over the next 2-4 weeks. A review will be scheduled with your Doctor after this time.
