What is AccuTite?
AccuTite is a minimally invasive skin tightening solution that is ideal for rejuvenating small, delicate areas of the body, especially on the face. It uses the same radiofrequency assisted liposuction (RFAL) technology as FaceTite, but in a smaller device that is suitable for more delicate treatment areas. It is a two-pronged device. One prong is a needle that is inserted beneath the skin’s surface through a small incision. This component can reach deeper layers of skin tissue, where it delivers radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. This also enables the removal of fatty tissue from beneath the skin to enhance the contours of the face. The second prong delivers radiofrequency energy from the skin’s surfacing, ensuring that RF energy is delivered across the entire treatment area. With AccuTite’s smaller design, it is ideal for treating areas such as:
- The brows
- The jawline
- The neck
- Nasolabial folds
- Under the eyes
What are the Benefits of AccuTite?
The benefits of the AccuTite make it a great alternative to surgical treatments, as well as an alternative to the FaceTite procedure for patients seeking rejuvenation in smaller treatment areas. These benefits include:
- Reduce sagging skin
- Reduce lines and wrinkles
- Reduce stubborn fat
- Improved skin laxity
How Much Do AccuTite Treatments Cost?
The cost of AccuTite treatments will vary as we determine the best approach to your treatment, which will depend on the size and number of the treatment areas as well as the extent of treatment needed for optimal results. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals so we can determine these variables and identify the best treatment plan. At this time, we will be able to inform you of the cost of treatment. If you have any concerns regarding the cost of your treatment, you may want to consider one of our financing options.
What is the AccuTite Treatment Like?
The AccuTite treatment begins with the application of a local anesthetic to the treatment area. Then, a small incision is made so that the AccuTite device can be inserted beneath the skin’s surface. Once beneath the skin, the AccuTite device heats fat in the surrounding area while also stimulating collagen production in the nearby tissue. This process typically takes less than an hour and does not cause any scarring.
Is There Any Downtime After AccuTite Treatments?
AccuTite requires significantly less downtime than surgery, but you should still expect to take a few days off of work and other activities. You can expect some bruising and swelling that may last up to two weeks. Most patients return to work and light activities within 2-3 days, while it can take up to 2 weeks to make a full recovery and get completely back to normal.
What Can I Expect After the AccuTite Treatment?
After AccuTite treatments, we’ll apply a compression garment to the skin that should be worn for 1-2 weeks. It will help reduce swelling and facilitate the recovery process. Your results will become increasingly visible in the weeks and months following treatment as any side effects fade and as new collagen becomes implemented into the skin tissue. Full results should be visible within 3-6 months. Patients only need one treatment session to achieve optimal results, and the results will last for several years.
