Facetite – Exclusive by Dr. med. Strouthou

FaceTite is a non-surgical Facelift alternative that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to target fat and loose skin in the face and neck. By simultaneously melting fat and tightening the skin, a FaceTite treatment can effectively counter common signs of ageing to create a more youthful appearance in just one treatment.

FaceTite can address a variety of common concerns, including:

  • Sagging jowls and neck skin.
  • Wrinkles and fine lines in the lower face.
  • Submental fullness beneath the chin.
  • Marionette lines around the mouth.
  • Decreased collagen and elastin production.

Dr. med. Strouthou is proud to offer a minimally invasive procedure that provides Facelift-like results with no surgery or scars. If you are interested in combating the effects of ageing with the latest nonsurgical methods, FaceTite may be the perfect solution.

FaceTite treatments are performed under local anaesthesia or with sedation. Once the patient has been numbed, a small hole is made in the skin at the edge of the jaw just below the ear. The incision is minimal and will not leave behind a scar after healing. A thin probe is then inserted beneath the skin to provide thermal energy to the underlying tissues of the face. The probe is capped off with a plastic tip to prevent accidental skin perforation and unnecessary damage.

After the probe has been inserted, an external electrode is placed overtop the outer skin. The probe and the electrode work in unison to create a contained thermal field that simultaneously targets the outer and inner layers of the skin for a comprehensive treatment. The FaceTite devices are slowly moved along the jawline, liquefying fat and contracting the collagen and elastin in the skin along the way.

The FaceTite system is equipped with numerous safeguards that provide active monitoring of the skin’s external and internal temperatures, ensuring the treatment is safe, precise and effective. Uniform heat distribution throughout the treated areas provides results that are even and smooth. The entire procedure lasts about one hour, and patients can return home immediately after.

Common side effects include swelling, soreness, bruising, numbness and itchiness in the targeted areas. Most side effects improve drastically within the first week, include swelling. Patients may also notice an uneven skin texture that lasts two to three weeks as the skin adjusts and contracts.

As a minimally invasive treatment, FaceTite does not require an overly lengthy or uncomfortable recovery period. Patients can return to work in three to five days.

Compression wrappings may be used to minimise swelling and provide comfort during the first week or two of recovery. The minor incisions will heal quickly without the need for stitches and will not leave behind noticeable scarring. Patients are generally able to resume regular activities about 48 hours after the procedure, although moderate swelling will be visible for the first three to five days and patients may want to stay home during this time.

Results are immediate, although swelling will distort the new facial contours. Once swelling subsides during the first week, the tightened contours and more youthful appearance will be visible. Final results will continue to develop over the course of six months, as increased collagen and elastin production result in a continuous improvement in skin laxity.

Our advanced FaceTite treatment can help firm up sagging facial tissues up to 40% instantly – the creation of collagen can deliver a significant lift to the target areas of your face including the upper, mid, or lower areas to reveal a more youthful appearance. The effects of FaceTite treatment are longer-lasting when compared to non-surgical facelift options.

Six weeks post the FaceTite treatment, your body will build new collagen to improve the texture and look of the skin.
