Facetite, NeckTite

Minimally Invasive Facial Contouring

FaceTite or Necktite is one of the safest and most advanced contouring system developed by Inmode to deliver excep­tion­ally controlled and safe collagen remod­el­ling and fat coagu­la­tion and skin tight­ening for areas like lower face, neck, and loose skin on arms.

Facetite or NeckTite uses RAFL (Radiofrequency assisted Lipoaspirate) tech­no­logy delivered through tiny cuts in the skin, that are barely visible when healed.

With the right patient selec­tion, the phys­i­cian can deliver a toned and youthful appear­ance that in the past was delivered only by surgical facelifts and neck lifts.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Facetite treatment safe?

The best part of the Facetite treat­ment is the built-in dual sensor tech­no­logy, that imme­di­ately cuts off the energy delivery after a set temper­ature is reached, dramat­ic­ally redu­cing the chances of over­heating and burns.

What problems can be treated with Facetite or NeckTite?

These safe tech­no­lo­gies can be used for Facial Contouring, Skin Laxity in areas such as jawline, neck or arms.

Is there any downtime with Facetite treatment?

The facetite and NeckTite treat­ments are done under local anes­thesia and are gener­ally asso­ci­ated with very few and temporary side effects like swelling, bruising, and discom­fort that lasts a few days. Major side effects like infec­tions, burns, scars and bleeding are rare with this technology.

Do I need to be admitted to hospital for a Facetite or NeckTite treatment?

No, both treat­ments are day surgeries involving local anes­thesia, you can there­fore walk on and off the treat­ment couch and go home the same day.

How do Facetite and NeckTite work?

The device used for FaceTite & NeckTite has got a small blunt needle like probe that goes under the skin into the fatty layer, this probe emits Radiofrequency energy that pref­er­en­tially passes to an external probe, heating the tissues between the two. Thus, the flow of energy and heating is extremely targeted. Overheating of the tissues is prevented by 2 temper­ature sensors that cut off the energy supply if the tissues reach the pre-set temper­ature. The delivered heat causes shrinkage and contrac­tion of the collagen fibres that are a part of the fibro­septal network that makes up the support struc­ture of the skin, the skin can there­fore tighten to an extent. The other effect of the heating is disrup­tion of the fat cells that when followed by lipoaspirate (suctioning away of the damaged residual fat cells) can contribute to signi­ficant fat remodelling.

How much does Facetite cost?

At Reforme Medical a FaceTite or NeckTite procedure costs range from £2995 to £3995.

Is Facetite or NeckTite better than Aqualyx or Fat Dissolving Injections for Double Chin?

Fat Dissolving Injections like Aqualyx can be an attractive option for a very small group of patients. The draw­back of fat dissolving injec­tions are that the response to the treat­ment is unpre­dict­able and most patients require more than one treat­ment. The fat dissolving injec­tions are also asso­ci­ated with severe swelling in the treated area, that can take up to 1 – 2 weeks to subside. FaceTite and NeckTite are onetime treat­ments that specific­ally target the excess fat in a patient with double chin causing coagu­la­tion and lique­fic­a­tion of the fat followed by its removal by Lipoaspiration.

This is why FaceTite and Necktite are far superior double chin treat­ments compared to Aqualyx and Fat Dissolving Injections.

How soon can I go back to work after Facetite or NeckTite?

At Reforme Medical we advise our patients to wear pres­sure dress­ings following the treat­ment for 3 – 4 days, most patients choose to have the treat­ment on a Thursday and go back to work on the following Monday.

How long does it take for results to show after Facetite or NeckTite?

The swelling that follows the treat­ment can take a couple of weeks to start receding, and you will notice increasing smoothing of the skin; however, given that the treat­ment delivers collagen and fat remod­el­ling, it can take up to 3 – 6 months for the stable result to be established.

How long do the results of Facetite and NeckTite last?

For most patients the results are stable for a few years and gener­ally don’t need to be repeated, ancil­lary treat­ments like Morpheus8 done once a year may preserve the results of FaceTite and NeckTite for longer

Am I a good candidate for Facetite or NeckTite?

The ideal patient for these treat­ments are those who have a stable weight not too far from their ideal body weight, often these are patients with familial double chins or resistant bingo wings. Patients who follow a healthy life­style and who don’t smoke are ideal patients.

Dr Prashant at Reforme Medical will eval­uate the severity of your problem and advise you if you will benefit from this procedure or if you need to have a surgical face or neck lift.

What is the difference between Facetite, Softwave and Ultherapy?

FaceTite and Necktite are minim­ally invasive treat­ments that have a longer down­time that Ultherapy and Softwave. Ultherapy is a non-invasive tech­no­logy that delivers heating of the tissue under the skin using ultra­sound energy, the energy is focussed into tiny dots of heating deep under the skin.

Softwave uses 7 parallel cylindrical high energy beams of ultra­sound energy at a depth of 1.5mm under the skin causing heat induced collagen tight­ening. The Morpheus8 hand­piece of the BodyTite plat­form delivers a much more controlled heating of the subcu­taneous tissues using 24 gold plated needles that can be controlled to deliver the energy at a variety of depths from 4mm deep to 1mm deep from the surface of the skin.

Does Facetite deliver the same results as a facelift?

The simple answer is NO, but in care­fully selected patients who are not yet ready for a surgical treat­ment, FaceTite offers and excel­lent altern­ative with minimal downtime
