Insertion of a cannula in areas of relaxed skin or with small fat deposits (such as the double chin or the jawline and jowls) allows Dr. Schlessinger to breakdown and break up fat using heat and simultaneous thermal skin retraction. The precise control of this technology allows the surgeon to target on a micro level. This advanced technology improves operating duration and the carefully calibrated temperature results in a safe and highly effective patient experience.
Heat is distributed evenly over the entire treatment area and the thermal coagulation of blood vessels guarantees the patient can return to normal life faster than with other procedures such as the traditional facelift
What To Expect During FaceTite® Treatment
The technique consists of a treatment under local anaesthesia lasting 45 minutes with only three small pinholes, each 2 mm. This provides for the entry of thin cannula that is precisely applied allowing the tissue to return to their original shape.
What Is Recovery Like After FaceTite®?
A return to normal life is a matter of a long weekend. The treatment, as mentioned previously, is performed under local anaesthesia and the patient returns home after a couple of hours, without the need for hospitalization. In the following few days, patients are provided with a facial compression covering to reduce swelling and your recovery time.
Initial results can be seen as the healing process begins (1-3 weeks) with as the months pass, Optimal result is achieved in about 3-6 months.
