FaceTite Risks and Side Effects
FaceTite is a minimally invasive radio-frequency (RF) device from InMode. The device as approved in the U.S. by the FDA may be different from that in the U.K. FaceTite can be used to tighten skin and destroy fat cells. In the hands of an experienced physician it is a safe procedure. The risks from the procedure stem from the RF energy which is heating the target tissue. Possible complications include a burn to the skin, damage to a nerve (temporary but may last months), destruction of fat tissue where volume loss is not desired. In the hands of an experienced physician with a properly selected patient, these complications can be avoided. As for side effects - bruising, swelling and discomfort are all possible side effects. I hope this was helpful - Dr. Moore.
Facetite is a procedure that uses radio frequency and claims to tighten the skin and improve skin quality. It is used to treat problems traditionally improved with chemical peels and lasers. A facelift procedure will elevate and reposition facial muscles as well as remove excess, lax skin. Facetite is relatively safe in good hands, but you must ask if it will meet your expectations.
FaceTite is safe
FaceTite is considered one of the industry’s most advanced and safest facial rejuvenating and skin contouring procedures. FaceTite uses the same kind of radiofrequency technology used in MRIs, Thermage and other medical treatments that have been safely performed for years. FaceTite was developed to treat delicate areas of skin without causing cellular damage to tissues.
Risks are the potential for a skin burn. However, it has a dual temperature sensor that prevents this from happening.

Good question! In the hands of an experienced surgeon, there should be little to no side effects. However there is the potential for small skin burns or asymmetry.

Possible Side Effects of a Facetite
Your medical history is needed for me to give you a full description of the risks and possible side effects; but generally, the main side effects are some bleeding, scarring and possible nerve injury. Every patient is different and it is important that you seek a board-certified plastic surgeon, schedule for a consultation appointment, and ask the surgeon about the specific details of your procedure.
The main risks are some bleeding, scarring, and a possibility of nerve injury but that when performed properly, can be a worthwhile procedure.
