Accutite Skin Tightening Treatment
Accutite: Advanced Facial Contouring & Refinement producing Surgical Results with Minimal Downtime & No Scars
WHAT IS THE ACCUTITE SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT ?
AccuTite Skin Tightening Treatment, also referred to as “RFAL,” (Radio Frequency Assisted Lipolysis) is a ground-breaking minimally invasive technology designed to tighten skin in small or hard to reach areas. Additionally, there are virtually no incisions, no scars, and a minimal recovery period. Furthermore, AccuTite Skin tightening treatment is the smallest, minimally invasive RFAL device on the market. The Accutite skin tightening treatment device is perfect for patients who need precise fat reduction or skin contraction. For best results, the treatments are performed in conjunction with the Morpheus8, a full-body fractional technology for subdermal adipose remodeling (SARDS).
CANDIDATES FOR ACCUTITE
AccuTite Skin Tightening Treatment is designed for patients with mild to significant skin laxity interested in looking more youthful. Additionally, these patients are typically not candidates for more invasive surgeries such as a facelift or necklift, or simply do not want the associated significant scars or downtime of more invasive surgical procedures. In my experience, the best results with a Accutite Skin Tightening Treatment are found in healthy patients who are non-smokers, and avoid risk factors such as excessive sun exposure.
THE ACCUTITE PROCEDURE
During an AccuTite™ Skin Tightening Treatment I first numb the area of interest with a local anesthetic. Next, I insert a very fine probe through the skin via a tiny incision into the fatty layer, just beneath the surface. I then selectively treat the saggy tissue of interest utilizing the proprietary radio-frequency assisted lipolysis technology. The treated areas subsequently undergo three-dimensional remodeling or shrinking. Ultimately, with the final results, we see result considerable skin tightening without the need for a scar. In my experience, the results are seen immediately. The patients face continues to improve and heal over the course of the next 4 months. In most cases, the treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure under a local anesthetic in my office with the assistance of a surgical technician.
HOW ACCUTITE WORKS
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS WITH ACCUTITE ?
In my practice, i find that most patients see results immediately after the procedure, with skin contraction up to 26 % being expected with a single treatment. Over the next 16 weeks following the treatment, new, more organized collagen is formed through the healing process which will continue to enhance the facial contour.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH ACCUTITE ?
Although any area on the face and neck with saggy skin can be treated, the areas that I most commonly treat with the Accutite Skin Tightening Treatment are the eye bags, upper and lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, jowls, and knees.
PROCEDURE AND POST CARE ?
AccuTite is performed under local anesthesia or light sedation. Post-procedure, patients are discharged home and resume regular activities shortly thereafter. Wearing a compression garment is recommended for best results. Mild to modest swelling and redness can be expected for about a week.
