Target Unwanted Fat And Tighten Skin FaceTite Brisbane

To reduce unwanted fat pockets and tighten skin on the face, the advanced FaceTite utilises radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL). With only a few small incisions, FaceTite can focus on the lower facial areas, including the cheeks, jawline and chin.

About FaceTite

Associated with minimal downtime and taking about 60 minutes to perform, FaceTite is an effective alternative treatment option to a surgical facelift. Through a few small incisions, using radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL), radiofrequency waves melt down the unwanted fat cells. A small cannula is then inserted to suction out the melted fat, in a method that prevents lumps and bumps that can sometimes result from traditional liposuction.

Simultaneously, the radiofrequency waves will stimulate collagen production, gradually tightening the skin in the treatment area. The collagen production will help the skin retract after the treatment, contouring the areas that have had unwanted fat pockets removed. Increased collagen can also help to reduce the appearance of skin ageing, including fine lines and wrinkles.

The potential benefits of FaceTite

FaceTite is a non-surgical alternative to a facelift, targeting skin laxity, unwanted fat pockets and signs of ageing. Instead of surgically removing excess skin, FaceTite uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate the production of collagen, gradually tightening the skin.

Increasing collagen production is also beneficial for signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles. As an innovative step forward from traditional liposuction, the treatment uses radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) to melt the fat before removal, reducing the chance of uneven results. The treatment uses small incisions, meaning that scarring will be minimal.

Less invasive than a surgical facelift, FaceTite is associated with a minimal downtime period of about one to two days. Patients can typically see results immediately after treatment, although the gradual increase of collagen production will take some time to show.

Suitable candidates

The treatment can be a suitable alternative to a surgical facelift for those who prefer a less invasive procedure. Suitable candidates should want to treat minimal to moderate skin laxity and/or address areas of unwanted fat pockets on the lower facial areas, such as the cheeks, jawline and chin.

Suitable candidates should be within a healthy weight range. Commonly, FaceTite patients are aged between 40 and 60, but your suitability for the procedure will ultimately depend on the condition of the area to be treated, your health and your expectations.

If you are currently experiencing a severe health condition, have active skin infections or wounds in the treatment area, or are a smoker, you may not be a suitable candidate. Smokers may be asked to quit for a sufficient period of time before and after the procedure to be considered suitable for the treatment.

A consultation with Dr. Scott Allison will determine your suitability for FaceTite. During your consultation, you can discuss health factors and your expectations for the results.

Your consultation with Dr Scott Allison

Dr. Scott Allison has over 10 years of experience in performing minimally invasive treatments. Understanding each patient’s unique needs, he provides personalised treatment plans, designed to achieve optimal results. He attends domestic and international conferences to keep up to date with the latest techniques and technology, passionate about providing the highest-quality treatment options.

During a consultation, Dr. Allison will discuss your procedure goals, health history and any lifestyle factors that may impact the treatment.

A consultation can also provide you with pricing information, detailing the costs of your personalised treatment.

What to expect

Your FaceTite procedure will be performed under local anaesthesia. To begin the procedure, small incisions will be placed in locations that will be determined during your consultation with Dr. Scott Allison.

The FaceTite device uses a small metal applicator to emit radiofrequency waves. The radiofrequency energy will melt down fat cells, preparing them to be suctioned out with a small cannula. At the same time, the radiofrequency energy stimulates collagen production, encouraging the treated skin to tighten over time.

Your treatment is personalised to suit your individual needs. You will discuss your procedure steps in detail during your consultation so that you will know what to expect.

Once the small incisions are sutured closed, you will be able to complete your recovery at home. Generally, FaceTite procedures take about 60 minutes, but it will depend on your personalised treatment steps

FaceTite treatment costs

The costs of your FaceTite treatment will depend on factors such as your personalised procedure steps, the condition of your treatment area, anaesthesia fees and the total procedure time.

During your consultation with Dr. Scott Allison, you will be able to discuss the factors that will influence your treatment costs in further detail.

Recovery guide

After your treatment, you may experience minor swelling, but this will begin to subside during one or two days after the procedure. A compression garment can help swelling subside faster, as well as encourage the treated skin to retract. Dr. Scott Allison will provide you with personalised aftercare instructions tailored to your personalised procedure during your consultation.

Your recovery instructions may include to:

  • Keep incision sites clean to prevent infection
  • Avoid excessive heat exposure
  • Avoid strenuous exercise
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure
  • Stop taking certain medications that can delay healing
  • Quit smoking
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Wear your compression garment as instructed
  • Sleep with your head elevated to reduce swelling

Recovery after FaceTite is generally considered minimal. Your recovery may last for about one or two days, but this will depend on individual factors that can be discussed during your consultation.

Your results

While FaceTite can deliver immediate results, your full results will take time to show as collagen production increases after the treatment. Any initial swelling will also need to subside to reveal full results. Gradually, with the increase of collagen production, you will begin to notice tighter skin and less fine lines and wrinkles.

The results of the procedure are long-lasting, usually lasting for up to five years. Results aren’t considered permanent due to various factors, such as the effects of the natural ageing process, excessive sun exposure and more. However, the fat cells that have been removed are removed permanently.

Potential risks and side effects

As a less invasive procedure than a surgical facelift, FaceTite is associated with fewer risks and side effects. However, all treatments can be associated with some level of risk.

Dr. Allison will inform you of the risks and complications during your consultation. You will also receive personalised instructions to help minimise these risks, such as keeping incision sites clean to avoid infection.

Some risks may include infection, swelling, bleeding and bruising at the small incision sites. Incisions will cause some level of scarring, but scarring can fade over time and become less noticeable. You will also be able to discuss the placement of your incisions during your consultation. Dr. Allison may be able to place your incisions in discreet locations to help minimise visible scarring.

Ensuring that you follow your personalised instructions will help to minimise risks and support effective results. Should you have any questions, please contact our team so that we can provide you with personalised advice.
