The Facetite procedure has an excellent safety record. By using controlled device settings, the temperature can be precisely controlled ensuring the perfect amount of energy is delivered to the right location, while minimising the risk of inadvertent injury.
Compared to traditional surgery, Facetite avoids some serious complications. Surgical face lifting can cause permanent nerve injury and disfigurement, and the use of general anaesthetic with surgical procedures also come with notable risks.
The main risks of the Facetite procedure are small minor burns, and temporary nerve injuries that spontaneously resolve over 1 month on average.
You will notice swelling and bruising after your Facetite procedure. Most swelling settles over the first few days, and bruising can be disguised with makeup.
There will be some mild discomfort after your procedure, which can be managed with over the counter pain relief.
You may need a few days off work to allow things to settle. For the first 3 days, you will need to wear a compression garment during the day and over night. You should then wear the garment for another 11 nights (totally 14 days).
Dr Aaron advises that his patients refrain from strenuous exercise for 7 days to ensure the most rapid recovery.
Comparison to other treatments
Compared to other notable treatments, Facetite has many key advantages. It is non surgical, and doesn’t require general anaesthetic. There is no cutting, and there is significantly less risk, downtime and expense compared to surgery. Results are also much more natural as the skin itself is rejuvenated.
It helps tighten the skin whilst reducing fullness. Traditional liposuction does not address the skin laxity. Without effective skin tightening when reducing fullness, you can be left with sagging and loose skin that needs to be cut out with surgery.
Facetite heats from the inside out, meaning the treated area is precisely targeted. Ultherapy, and high frequency ultrasound (HIFU) can also tighten the skin and reduce fullness, but the energy is directed from the outside in, meaning deeper fat that gives the face contour and structure can inadvertently be treated, causing an aged and gaunt appearance.
Compared to thread lifting, Facetite achieves better tightening of the skin and reduced fullness. Threads lift sagging skin and produce collagen. Hence on many occasions, Dr Aaron advocates for a combined Facetite and thread lift, so the you get a tightening effect, reduced fullness, lifted skin and collagen product – a total facial rejuvenation.
