FaceTite or Facelift?

What’s the difference between FaceTite and a Facelift?

FaceTite and Facelift surgery are both cosmetic procedures that are designed to improve the appearance of the face, but they are different procedures with different goals and techniques.

FaceTite, also known as facial contouring or facial sculpting, is a non-surgical procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten and contour the skin on the face and neck. FaceTite is typically used to treat mild to moderate sagging or laxity in the skin, and can be used to improve the appearance of the jawline, neck, and cheeks.

Facelift surgery, on the other hand, is a more invasive procedure that involves making incisions in the skin to lift and tighten the underlying muscles and tissues of the face. Facelift surgery is typically used to treat more severe sagging or laxity in the skin, and can be used to improve the appearance of the cheeks, jowls, and neck.

Which is the right procedure for me?

Some patients may choose FaceTite over a Facelift if they are looking for a less invasive procedure with a shorter recovery time. However, Facelift surgery may be more appropriate for patients with more advanced signs of ageing or sagging skin. It is important for patients to discuss their goals and concerns with their doctor to determine which procedure is best for them.

At MINKST we insist on the highest standards and quality of care. Not all patients are the same, it’s important your doctor listens to what you want to achieve and develops a personalised plan with you.
