RFAL (FaceTite / NeckTite / ArmTite)

 

FaceTite and NeckTite are two revolutaionary handpieces used to apply BodyTite’s RFAL (radio-frequency assisted liolysis) technology for a complete contouring solution of the face and small areas of the body.

 

FaceTite and NeckTite is ideal for small treatment areas require tightening including: neck, jowls, lower eyes, arms, inner thighs, breasts and knees.

 

FaceTite – A non-aspirating cannula with a plastic end tip that allows physicians to work safely in the sub-dermal plane for RF inspired tissue contraction and contouring.

 

NeckTite – RF energy is simultaneous with aspiration resulting in gentle fat removal in addition to tightening and contouring.

 

RF energy travels from an internal electrode, which can be simultaneously aspirating coagulated tissue, to an external electrode, resulting in coagulation of adipose, vascular and fibrous tissue as well as heating the entire soft-tissue matrix.

 

Benefits:

 

Superior facial and small area contouring to avoid the need for more extensive surgical procedures (such as facelift or brachioplasty).
Versatility to select single-stage aspiration or non-aspiration treatment.
Skin contraction of the entire facial subcutaneous tissue and septae matrix for unprecedented tightening results.

 

Small cannula diameter ensures a smaller incision and decreased downtime and scaring. Controlled directional energy distribution maximizes RF utilization in the treated area while protecting against heating of unwanted structures.
Improved safety with system safeguards that regulate skin temperature and impedance levels to decrease risks of thermal injuries.

About Thread Lift and Thread Mesh

 

There are two types of PDO Thread techniques, both are considered non-surgical face lifts and the procedures typically take 5 to 15 minutes:

 

NovaMesh – Used primarily in the Lips, Neck and Cheeks
NovaLyft – Used primarily in the Jaw, Cheeks and Neck

 

How Do Thread Lift and Thread Mesh Work:

 

The mesh technique works by relying on the action of the needle and the reaction of the human body to the foreign threads injected to create the mesh to stimulate new collagen production.

 

The Thread Lyft technique works by also stimulating new collagen in the area of the thread injection but also lifts and pulls the skin depending on the type of threads used. Nova-Lyft uses barbed threads – Unidirectional and Bidirectional. Those barbs or cogs provide an extra grip that allows for a real lift of the skin.

 

The threads used in both techniques are Polydioxanone, they are used for biomedical applications such as cardiothoracic surgery because they are fully absorbed within 4 to 6 month and they do not create any scar tissue. The procedure does not require a scalpel or anesthesia (numbing cream is recommended). There is no downtime as with a regular surgical facelift. A pre-loaded thread needle is injected at the subdermal level and removed, leaving the The Resorbable PDO thread in place.
