You may not be as young as you’d like to, but you can definitely look years younger. Technology has made sure of that. Today you can reverse the signs of aging, without going through the hassle of major cosmetic surgery. How? Through FaceTite.
FaceTite is a minimally invasive treatment which contours the face and other areas of the body treatment and is to make you look years younger.
FaceTite is a convenient alternative to a conventional facelift. Using RFAL technology, Facetite provides a three-dimensional restructuring or remodeling of the skin. Today there is no need to undergo a traditional face-lift when there’s a younger and fresher you on the other side of FaceTite. This is due to the RFAL technology behind the procedure, which causes the skin to tighten by 40% and almost instantly too!
However, it is important to note that improvements will continue to be seen over the course of 6 weeks as new collagen is being formed. In essence, expect visible and instantaneous results after your FaceTite treatment, with minimal swelling and redness.
What should I expect after my FaceTite treatment?
Unlike other, more invasive procedures, which usually have a 1-3 month recovery period, FaceTite patients can expect some post procedure swelling and discomfort for about a week.
A Minimally Invasive Mini Face-Lift
This means, no needles, no blades or physically penetrable objects are being used during the procedure. It can be called a mini face-lift because its results resemble that of a full-blown face-lift without the need for large surgical incisions. This, as a result, makes the recovery time much shorter and the process less painful.
What areas can I treat with FaceTite?
You can use a FaceTite procedure for any region above the shoulders. This includes different areas of the face, cheekbones, chin, and even the neck.
Does FaceTite hurt?
For those who hate going under the knife because of the pain afterward, there’s no need to worry. FaceTite doesn’t hurt, however, to diminish the discomfort, a local anesthetic will be administered during the treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
In most cases, only one treatment would get you the desired results. However, the number of treatments you will need really depends on the elasticity of your skin as well as the intensity of the results you’re looking to achieve. This is a conversation you and Dr. Gerth can have during your consultation in his office.
Can FaceTite be done together with BodyTite?
Why not have the best of both worlds. There’s no reason why you should choose between the two procedures as both can be done simultaneously. However, this should be discussed with Dr. Gerth during your consultation.
What is RFAL Technology?
Both the FaceTite and BodyTite procedures are quite similar in the sense that they both make use of the same technology, RFAL. This stands for Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction. However, with BodyTite there is no aspiration so it’s just the RF (Radio Frequency) that is used.
This technology has been used in a handful of medical procedures and even in machines like MRIs to treat patients of diverse diagnostics over the course of 75 years since its inception. Now through InMode’s technology, like FaceTite and BodyTite, it has revolutionized the cosmetic surgery world.
How Does RFAL Technology Work?
With respect to FaceTite, the RFAL energy is released to the FaceTite handpiece through an internal cannula to an external electrode thus generating a precise amount of energy into the tissues and fatty areas of the affected area.
This application of RFAL is directional and controlled to precision to heat up the targeted areas without any form of thermal injury, burns or scalds to the surrounding tissue. Also, the handpiece of the RFAL is geometrically designed hence the electrode size gives a concise calculation of the precise amount of heat generated on the skin’s surface. This prevents any form of thermal buildup.
In essence, this working principle allows the FaceTite procedure to become a one-step procedure that provides quicker and more visible treatments up to four times faster than any laser-assisted procedures or devices. Visible and instantaneous results which include pronounced fat reduction and body firming tendencies. This gives patients with intense skin laxity an alternative to the lumpy fat appearances created by liposuction. It is basically a major benefit as opposed to going under the knife or any other invasive procedure.
