FaceTite & AccuTite

Surgery-like Results Without the Downtime or Recovery of Surgery


Dr. med. Florian Bast


FaceTite and AccuTite are both focal radiofrequency devices.  It is cutting-edge technology and is able to correct and reverse signs of facial ageing without surgery with little downtime – if any at all.

FaceTite/AccuTite provides dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck, similar to that of a mini-facelift.  This energy-based treatment (using radiofrequency energy) provokes natural tissue rejuvenation whilst triggering energy-assisted lipolysis (targeted fat destruction) and progressively tightening skin tissue. It stimulates facial RF contraction without the need for excisional surgery.

These factors mean that FaceTite/AccuTite can have a dramatic effect on facial structure; rivalling the results of surgical facelifts but without many of the side effects and risk factors with minimal downtime.

This will make you appear more youthful and rejuvenated.

Where Is It Used?

During the treatment, the radiofrequency energy delivered into the dermis significantly increases collagen production; tightening and rejuvenating the skin and its structure. Unlike a facelift, non-surgical FaceTite/AccuTite procedures don’t manipulate tissues – instead, they encourage your body to naturally tighten its superficial tissue.  The end result – smoother skin, defined facial structure, sharper jawlines and tighter skin on the neck.

It can be used for the brows, the periorbital area (upper and lower eyelids), the nasolabial fold, the lower face (jawline) and the neck.

What Should I Expect?

FaceTite/AccuTite treatments take around 40 minutes – 1 hour to complete depending on the area being treated. Topical and local anaesthetic will be used before the treatment. The treatment itself is pain-free.

A compression garment is worn for three days following treatment to help reduce swelling (this will be supplied to you and comes within your treatment price).  You will wear the compression garment in the evening and while sleeping for at least two weeks or until swelling subsides. The compression garment ideally should be worn for 12 hours per day for the first 2 weeks.

By day 5 post-procedure swelling will have significantly decreased and you will be left with only mild tenderness. By this point, many people feel comfortable returning to light duties.

Some results will be visible immediately after your treatment with most patients noticing approximately 30-40% of the results once any post-treatment swelling has gone down (after 4-6 weeks.) Results peak around 6 months.


Benefits Of FaceTite with Florian Bast

Benefits in opting for non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments such as FaceTite/AccuTite include:


– No surgical risks

– No surgical scars

– Treatment only involves local anaesthesia – no sedation required

– Mild side effects; usually only limited to small amounts of swelling and bruising

– Short recovery period

– Consistent, predictable results across the treatment area

– Long-lasting results

Side Effects

In general side effects with FaceTite/AccuTite are rare and expected to be transient, but please report any adverse reaction immediately.  Side effects may include any of the conditions listed below.  Side effects may appear either at the time of treatment or shortly after.

The side effects may include:

  • Discomfort
  • Excessive skin redness (erythema) and/or swelling (oedema)
  • Damage to natural skin texture (crust, blister, burn)
  • Change of pigmentation (hyper- or hypo-pigmentation)
  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Nerve Injury which could potentially lead to weakness of affected areas, temporary change in smile or any facial expression and temporary numbness/tingling in the area treated.

We also offer a similar high technology treatment called Morpheus8 which is often used in combination with FaceTite and AccuTite. Click below to learn more.
