Minimally-Invasive Face Contouring
FaceTite is InMode’s minimally-invasive contouring procedure that can dramatically improve the appearance of the jawline and neck without surgery, stitches or scarring. The procedure consists of several steps:
- HEATING OF SUBCUTANEOUS FAT
FaceTite is powered by directional RF resulting in three-dimensional tissue remodeling through fat coagulation and volumetric heating. The coagulation of fat using RF-induced heat results in radio-frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL).
- LIPOASPIRATION (REMOVAL OF TREATED FAT)
A small 2 mm cannula attached to a small syringe is used to remove treated fat.
- MORPHEUS8 RF MICRONEEDLING TREATMENTS
A series of deep tissue RF micro-needling treatments of lower face and neck with the Morpheus8 handpiece is expected to enhance skin tissue contraction/tightening. The first treatment is performed at the same time as the FaceTite treatment. The second and third treatments are completed at 1 month intervals.
- OPTIONAL, PLATYSMA MUSCLE TIGHTENING
A small incision placed under chin so that platysma muscle can be tightened. If needed, this will significantly improve the overall result.
Key benefits of FaceTite bipolar RF treatment:
Controls heating with real time temperature monitoring in the fat layer and at the skin surface to ensure that treatment results are consistent, avoiding overtreated or undertreated areas. Directional RF builds a temperature profile with a temperature gradient providing different treatment modalities for each tissue layer, from the deep fat layer where more heat is needed up to the skin’s surface where less heat is needed.
Oral sedation or light IV sedation is recommended. After local/tumescent anesthesia is placed into the treatment areas the outpatient procedure is typically completed within 45 minutes (a little longer if muscle tightening is needed). A light compression dressing is placed over the treated areas of the lower face and neck. The compression dressing is removed the following morning. An elastic compression garment is applied and it is recommended that patients maintain compression as much as possible over the next week.
