What is AccuTite?
AccuTite is a minimally-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses the same technology as the popular FaceTite procedure. Using radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis, or RFAL, the AccuTite device simultaneously tightens the skin and eliminates excess fat. Plus, all of this is accomplished without the use of surgery! The radiofrequency energy involved in treatment melts fat cells while causing skin tissue to contract. The AccuTite technique can create impressive results that are comparable to surgical procedures but don’t involve the scarring, downtime and high costs of cosmetic surgery. AccuTite can be used on many areas of the body, including:

Who is a Good Candidate for AccuTite?
AccuTite can be a suitable treatment for any patient who would like to rejuvenate their appearance without the use of surgery. As a minimally-invasive procedure with little to no downtime, AccuTite is often a convenient treatment solution for patients with active lifestyles. However, it is important to note that while the results from AccuTite can be significant, they may not be as dramatic as the results that are possible through surgery. For patients who are seeking a solution for severe skin laxity or stubborn body fat, traditional surgery may be a better option.
What is the AccuTite Procedure Like?
The AccuTite procedure is performed with local anesthesia. The AccuTite device features a needle-like probe, which will be inserted into the skin during the procedure. Since this probe is small, there will be virtually no scarring and stitching will not be necessary. Once inserted into the skin, the AccuTite device will deliver radiofrequency energy to the surrounding tissue. This causes the tissue to contract and tighten, while also stimulating collagen production in the skin. The heat also melts fat cells, which the body will later break down. We can also remove them during treatment, if necessary. It takes about one hour to perform the AccuTite procedure, although the exact duration of treatment will depend on your treatment goals and the areas being addressed.
What is Recovery Like After AccuTite?
After AccuTite, you can expect some swelling and sensitivity in the treatment area. These symptoms usually last a few weeks, but you’ll be able to resume most normal activities within days of treatment.
Even with these side effects, many patients notice results from the AccuTite procedure almost immediately after treatment. These results will continue to improve as collagen production increases in the body, and as the body removes the liquefied fat cells. You can expect to see the full results of treatment within two months of your procedure, at which point the results will be permanent.
