FaceTite is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that tightens sagging skin on the face, jawline and neck. The results are similar to those of a surgical face lift, improving skin tone and lasting for at least five years.
The advantages of FaceTite
- Surgery and general anaesthesia are not required.
- It is pain-free.
- The procedure doesn’t take very long (1-2 hours)
- It tightens the skin by upto 40 percent
- Stitches are not needed and there is no scarring
- Recovery is very fast
- Improvements in skin tone can be seen immediately (in most patients)
- There are few side-effects, which disappear in a few days
- Only one treatment is required for most patients
- The results can last for five years or more
- It is less expensive than a surgical face lift.
Which areas of the body benefit from FaceTite?
FaceTite can be applied to the skin on any part of the face and neck. Even delicate areas can be treated. Areas that particularly benefit are:
- Nasolabial folds (lines between the sides of the nose and corners of the mouth)
How does FaceTite work?
FaceTite uses radio-frequency energy to tone your skin from inside the dermis. Dr Vlok and his team apply radio-frequency energy to your skin through a hand-held applicator. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and is pain-free.
Is FaceTite safe?
The same radiofrequency energy that has been used safely in MRI scanners for many years is used in the FaceTite procedure. It’s therefore completely safe.
FaceTite does not cause any cellular damage to your skin tissue and therefore can be used on delicate areas of skin.
Are there any side-effects?
Some patients see some redness, swelling and/or bruising after the procedure. This subsides naturally in a few days.
There is no scarring or damage to adjacent skin.
How long will it take to recover?
Most patients resume their normal daily activities within a few days.
When will you see results?
Many people notice that their skin looks tighter and firmer immediately after the procedure. For others, the appearance of their skin improves gradually over three to six weeks as the body produces new collagen and elastin.
How long will the results last?
FaceTite stimulates the body to produce new collagen, which gives long-lasting results. The appearance of younger, tighter skin can last for five years or longer.
Can you have the FaceTite procedure if you’re pregnant?
No, FaceTite cannot be performed during pregnancy.
Can you have FaceTite if you’ve had dermal fillers?
Yes, although Dr Vlok recommends that you leave at least eight weeks between having dermal fillers and the FaceTite procedure.
