Facetite Vs Morpheus8, What’s Best for Me?

Posted on January 20, 2022

FaceTite and Morpheus8 are minimally invasive treatments.

FaceTite and Morpheus8 are common non-surgical treatments that get rid of skin problems such as fine lines and wrinkles. They also improve the overall state of your skin, making them popular among celebrities.

But which treatment is better? How do you choose one treatment over the other?

In this article, I will talk about FaceTite and Morpheus8, how the treatments usually go, and how much they typically cost. I will also discuss which treatment is better for you.

What Is Morpheus8?

Morpheus8 is an innovative treatment that involves a microneedling device. It uses radiofrequency technology to contour the face and body. This FDA-approved treatment deeply goes into the skin for a smoother, younger appearance.

Depending on your doctor’s assessment, Morpheus8 can be combined with other treatments like laser resurfacing and lip fillers.

In particular, Morpheus8 can tighten, lift, and contour the skin. The treatment does these by restoring your collagen and elastin levels.

Collagen and elastin are two important proteins that help you keep a youthful look. Specifically speaking, your body naturally produces collagen to provide strength and structure.

Elastin, on the other hand, helps your skin return to its original position after poking, stretching, or pinching it.

Morpheus8 commonly treats problem areas like the lower face and neck. It also has the ability to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and discolouration.

As of writing, the Morpheus8 can go deeper than any radiofrequency microneedling device in the market.

FaceTite involves radiofrequency and fat reduction techniques.

What Is FaceTite?

FaceTite is a type of treatment that works like a facelift. However, FaceTite tightens the skin without making you go under the knife.

This treatment uses radiofrequency energy that targets unwanted fat. This tightens the skin and contours the face. Just like Morpheus8, FaceTite is also FDA-approved.

This procedure combines both skin tightening and fat reduction techniques. These result in contouring and lifting the face.

FaceTite also goes by the name radiofrequency assisted liposuction (RFAL). The treatment is widely known as an amazing alternative to a surgical facelift.

In particular, FaceTite can tighten the skin by 40% while removing unwanted fat. The treatment targets the area of concern, without damaging the surrounding areas.

Furthermore, the FaceTite procedure doesn’t leave stitches and scars. The procedure also involves minimal downtime. For this reason, many patients prefer FaceTite over invasive facelift procedures.

Morpheus8 Before and After

Here are the things you must do before getting a Morpheus8 treatment:

One Week Prior to Treatment

Three Days Prior to Treatment

  • Discontinue the use of any topical products with irritants.
  • Do not use products deemed as active skincare, especially those that contain alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids, vitamin A (retinol), and vitamin C (with low pH formula).
  • Do not have treatments like microdermabrasion or laser procedures.
  • Avoid exposing the target area to the sun for prolonged hours, as treatment cannot be done on a sunburned area.

Day of Treatment

  • Take a bath as usual.
  • Refrain from applying any lotion, powder, oil, or products of the like on the area where treatment will be done.
  • Cleanse your neck and don’t apply any makeup if your face and neck are the target areas.
  • Make sure to tie it to clear your face of the hair strands while being treated, especially if you have long hair.

What to Expect After Morpheus8

Here are the things you can expect after a Morpheus8 treatment:

  • You will feel like you have a moderate sunburn after getting the Morpheus8 treatment.
  • You may also feel your skin become warmer and tighter than usual.
  • Crusting and peeling of the skin may be experienced for at least three to seven days after the treatment.
  • Swelling and redness of the skin may also last for three to four days.

After a Morpheus8 Treatment

Here are the things you must do after a Morpheus8 treatment:

  • Moisturize the treated area using a moisturizer or healing ointment, until the skin heals.
  • You can apply makeup two days after the treatment. Make sure to clean your makeup brushes before applying your makeup.
  • Use sunscreen with at least SPF 30 at all times. Do not go out unless you really have to.
  • Avoid steam baths and saunas after the treatment.
  • Do not use tanning beds for at least one day after the treatment.
  • Avoid swimming activities for at least one day after getting the treatment.
  • Do not exercise or do any strenuous activity for one day after getting the treatment. Sweating can be harmful and may cause adverse reactions, as well as rife with bacteria.

FaceTite Before and After

Before FaceTite

Here are the things you must do before getting a FaceTite treatment:

  • Prior to the procedure, you must stop taking medications like ibuprofen, aspirin, supplements like fish oil, and herbal supplements with blood-thinning properties.
  • You must avoid consuming products containing nicotine. These include tobacco and nicotine pens. Nicotine causes blood vessels to narrow and decrease blood flow for healing. It may also cause a delay in your recovery and may result in unattractive results.

After a FaceTite Treatment

Here are the things you must do after a FaceTite treatment:

  • You must have a trusted companion to help you with household chores and other errands for at least 24 hours after the treatment.
  • Make sure to have a space where you can rest and recover comfortably.
  • Follow the post-care instructions given by your doctor to ensure the best experience out of your treatment.
  • Avoid facial products with drying or irritating properties like retinol and acids (salicylic, glycolic, and the like) after the procedure.
  • Do not rub the target area until it heals.
  • Avoid smoking and drinking. These delay healing and increase possible complications.

Morpheus8 vs FaceTite UK: Which Is Better?

Morpheus8 is a safe, FDA-approved treatment that uses radiofrequency energy in combination with microneedling. This means tiny pins penetrate the skin while the radiofrequency energy is delivered to depths of two to four millimeters (which is predetermined per area) to remodel the collagen below.

This procedure creates a smoother appearance that minimizes fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and removes facial fat, jowls, and double chins. Morpheus8 is a great option for contouring, to create a younger, slimmer, and sharper effect on one’s look.

In addition, Morpheus8 can be used for both the face and the body, and even on the delicate part under the eyes.

Just like Morpheus8, FaceTite uses radiofrequency. The procedure serves as an alternative to the traditional facelift.

Radiofrequency technology helps contour the face and boost the production of collagen in the skin. At the same time, it melts the fat while tightening the skin, which will give you quick results.

FaceTite is a great option for a tighter, smoother, and youthful appearance, as it targets fat and tightens loose skin. This treatment is also great for the neck area, where sagging jowls and double chin often settle which causes evident aging in appearance.

As an FDA-approved radiofrequency technique, FACETite can also tighten and lift sagging skin.

A combination of FaceTite and Morpheus8 can be done depending on your needs.

FaceTite is perfect for patients who are seeking a non-invasive facelift alternative with minimal downtime.

On the other hand, Morpheus8 is perfect for those who want a less invasive procedure that targets extra fat and removes sagging jowls by going deep into the skin.

Both FaceTite and Morpheus8 aid in boosting collagen production in your skin. This creates a natural lift and smoothes your wrinkles.

FaceTite and Morpheus8 are both excellent treatments for solving many skin problems.
