What is AccuTite?
AccuTite is the smallest “Tite” technology designed to treat delicate tissues and small areas on the face and body. AccuTite uses heat generated by RF technology to lift and tighten loose skin for a more youthful appearance and improved body or facial contours. This minimally invasive body contouring procedure is a great option for non-surgical skin tightening since it creates amazing results with minimal downtime. Dr. Jennifer Reichel is our only provider offering FaceTite in our state-of-the-art surgical suite.
How Does AccuTite Work?
As the skin ages, collagen production decreases and the skin loses elasticity, resulting in sagging skin on the body, face, and neck. AccuTite uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to trigger skin contraction of the deep connective tissues and tighten the surface layers of the skin.
Heat energy also stimulates collagen production to give the skin volume and added definition, eliminating signs of aging like skin laxity or fine lines and wrinkles. AccuTite can also melt fat to more dramatically redefine and reshape various areas of the face and body.
What Areas Does AccuTite Treat?
AccuTite is often used to precisely target the following areas:
- Under eyes
- Nasolabial folds
- Bra fat or armpit fat
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
At your AccuTite treatment, a local anesthetic will be used to numb the treatment area(s) before your doctor makes a small incision. The small AccuTite wand is inserted under the skin and gently moved back and forth to break up fat cells and evenly heat the treatment area. The procedure takes about 30 minutes or more, depending on the area(s) being treated.
Since this is a minimally invasive treatment, most patients can return to their normal activities in a couple of days. Mild swelling, bruising, and soreness may occur for up to a week after treatment, but these effects will resolve on their own.
How Long Does AccuTite Last?
AccuTite results will gradually appear as collagen rebuilds and excess fat dissolves. Improvements like smooth and tighter skin will be noticeable in a few months. After one AccuTite procedure, results can last up to 5 years!
