The London Cosmetic, Harley Street now offers FaceTite™, this is the most advanced non surgical facial contouring and skin tightening treatment available. You will be treated by our well respected and highly experienced Cosmetic Doctors and Plastic Surgeons who deliver a high standard of patient care in our state-of-the-art modern clinic. The FaceTite™ treatment provides dramatic improvement in skin laxity and sagging on face and neck with usually only one treatment needed.
Areas can be treated effectively with FaceTite™,
The FaceTite™ treatment is done under local anesthetic for patient comfort, is minimally invasive and takes about an hour. resulting in fat contraction and tightening of the skin.
A very fine cannula is inserted under the skin using the power of Bipolar radio frequency energy, this energy is used to heat underneath the skin and into the fatty tissue. Here the temperature is monitored by your doctor so you can achieve tighter, younger skin.
FaceTite™ results are similar to face or neck lift surgery, but without the need for major surgeries or scars to deal with. Results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable at 6 months and the results last similar to surgery which is up to 10 years.
A light liposuction to remove some liquidified fat from neck or jaw line can be combined to achieved faster and better results in those needed.
Following the FaceTite™ procedure the skin itself can easily be treated while still numb from the anaesthetic with Morpheus 8 , the micro needling Radio Frequency, to achieve an improved result with skin remodelling to remove any fine lines& wrinkles and maximum skin tightening effect.
This will be discussed with your doctor at your consultation.
At your consultation, you will be carefully examined by one of our qualified doctors who will discuss your personalised treatment plan. Before and after photographs are taken for your medical records, this will also allow you to see the results for yourself.
The treatment is done using local anesthetic, and is done in a safe, sterile environment, ensuring 5-star patient care.
Small ‘punctures’ are made either side of the face and under the chin to allow access for the FaceTite™ probe to pass easily under the skin, which is painless as the area is now numb from the anesthetic. When the energy is being delivered through the FaceTite™ probe there is usually a sound of ‘popping’ or crackling that can be heard. This is all normal and indicates adequate heating of the subcutaneous tissues with subsequent contraction. Once the correct amount of energy and heating is delivered to each treatment zone, which usually takes around 5 minutes to each area or zone, then a gentle liposuction or aspiration of fat from the jowls and neck is undertaken, if required, to complete the treatment.
Once the treatment is over, small plasters are applied to the puncture sites. Stitches are not normally needed.
A compression garment is then worn for the next three days to help reduce swelling following the procedure. This is supplied to you by the clinic and comes within your treatment price.
After three days the patient can cut down to using the compression garment just at night for the next two weeks. Swelling, which is normal, starts to go down over the next two to four weeks. Your doctor will prescribe you a course of antibiotics to prevent secondary infection.

As we age, our skin can start to lose its elasticity and this means that everything starts to go south. Imagine skin that is tight and toned. It sits firm on to the facial anatomy, holds its plump and youthful appearance and contours around the facial skeleton. As time starts to take a hold, we lose [...]Read More >
Over time, the visible signs of facial ageing can start to take its toll. The skin loses its firmness and elasticity and that tell-tale sagging skin can mean sunken cheeks, deep nose to mouth lines, jowls and a weak jawline. This is due to a depletion of substances that occur in the body and are res [...]Read More >
