The Blog Facetite: An Alternative to a Facelift

If the thought of going under the knife to get a facelift leaves you feeling nervous, you are not alone. A facelift is major surgery, and it can leave you with scarring as well as needed time to recuperate. The good news is that there is an alternative to a facelift. Facetite can give you excellent facelift-like results and turn back the clock.

What is Facetite?

Facetite is non-invasive and uses a radiofrequency device to give you results that are comparable to a facelift. It does this by lifting sagging facial tissues, melting subcutaneous fat and tightening tired skin.

At Contour Clinics, your doctor will use a slender radiofrequency probe that sends energy to tighten the underlying tissues and contract the overlying skin. This advanced technology uses dual temperature control to monitor the external and internal temperatures, so there is minimal risk of excessive tissue damage or burning.

Unlike a facelift where there will be scalpels and stitches, there will only be needle insertion marks on your skin but no scarring.

The procedure usually takes about an hour to perform. It is also long-lasting, and you can expect the results to last 5-7 years.

How is it different from filler or thread lifting?

Filler or thread lifting are great options for small areas of your face that need tightening. Facetite can cover larger areas of your face, and it gives a fantastic option for those who need more than fillers and thread lifting but do not want a surgical facelift.

Who can use Facetite?

Facetite gives the best results to those who have mild or moderate skin laxity or facial drooping, and many patients who have had this treatment say there is at least a 40% improvement. It is a great option for anyone who is thinking about a facelift but doesn’t want the expense, pain, downtime or scarring.

At Contour Clinics, we give complimentary consultations and facial assessments, and we can tell you if Facetite is the best procedure for you. Facetite can also be combined with a range of other procedures to give you the look you are after.

How long does it take to recover from the procedure?

Unlike a facelift, the recovery time from Facetite is relatively quick. After your treatment, there will probably be some swelling or bruising, but this will normally resolve itself within 3-7 days.

You can expect to be back at work or doing your normal activities soon after your treatment. However, you will need to avoid anything strenuous. You will also need to wear the compression garment given to you for the first few days and at night for the first week.
