We are the only clinic to offer SculpTite.
This unique treatment has been developed after years of experience with FaceTite™️ and NeckTite™️.
The 3 Ds of Ageing
We use a specific combination of therapies to treat what we call the 3 Ds of ageing: The DEFLATION, which occurs when we lose volume, and the DETERIORATION and thinning of the skin due to reduced collagen and elastin production. These both lead to the DECENT of our tissues under the influence of gravity, which occurs naturally in all of us as we age. Although inevitable, it isn’t untreatable.
These minimally invasive, highly effective, no scalpel procedures have been developed to safely address all of the 3 Ds. We combine FaceTite™ and NeckTite™ with Ethibond™ suspension lift, fat transfer or filler, and Morpheus8 to truly sculpt the face. When used together with a careful technique and artistic eye, they can deliver truly remarkable results.
When will I see results?
The skin contracts about 40% of the total amount it will contract during the actual treatment. The rest is up to time, so be patient! Usually, results become obvious at about 4 months, but contraction will continue up to 2 years after treatment, slowing down a little in progress after 6 months. Some patients have noticed continued contraction and lifting up to 2-3 years. The important thing to remember is that the ongoing contraction is slow. Slower than coastal erosion probably, but it will happen!
How does it feel afterwards?
Expect to feel swollen for at least a week. This is partly the local anaesthetic solution we have injected, and partly the treatment itself. The face and neck will feel tender for a week and some report tenderness for up to a month. It is very common to feel numb in the areas treated, especially the jowls. The numbness can take two months to reduce and two more to resolve completely. There will also be small lumps just under the skin, especially in the neck. Think of it as spot welding! They are signs of subcutaneous tissue healing and will keep contracting as they smooth out over the next three months.
As with all treatments that involve making small incisions into the skin there are risks. They can be broadly categorised into short term and long term. In the short term, there can be bleeding and, consequently, bruising. Because adrenaline in used in the local anaesthetic, this is usually slight but can, nevertheless, happen.
Infection is also a possibility so this is the reason the treatment is carried out in a strictly aseptic technique in a clean, clinical environment and is also the reason an antibiotic is given on the day.
