Like FaceTite, AccuTite is a minimally-invasive procedure that utilizes radiofrequency (RF) technology to tighten skin and boost collagen production. The prominent difference between these two devices is found in the size of the applicator. AccuTite uniquely offers the ability to treat smaller areas on the face and body. Dr. Cole uses his expertise in determining whether AccuTite or FaceTite will better address your concerned areas.
The radiofrequency in AccuTite boost the creation of new collagen fibers which results in melting small quantities of fat and tightening skin. This branch of InMode tech is FDA approved, so you can rest assured that the procedure is not only safe but effective.
Accutite Can Help With:
- Signs of aging and loss of youthful appearance
- Excess fatty deposits in the lower jaw and neckline
- Early stages of sagging or loose skin
- Stimulating collagen production resulting in improved tone and texture
Combining AccuTite with Other Procedures
The RadioFreqeuncy technology found in AccuTite works by heating the dermis layer of the skin, stimulating new collagen fiber production. When combined with Morpheus8 micro-needling RF technology, your results are enhanced. By perforating a pattern into the skin with the 24 coated needles, your body’s natural healing response is expedited and the tightening and collagen production magnifies.
- Brow and forehead
- Eyelids and around the eyes
- Nasolabial folds (lines along your nose down to sides of your mouth)
- Armpit edges
- Arms (upper arms and hands)
- Tummy area (abdomen)
- Legs (thighs and knees)
Results and Recovery
Since AccuTite is minimally invasive, you can expect little downtime compared to surgical skin tightening. Bruising and swelling typically lasts a week on average. For some, it will be less, and others might see it last longer. Compression garments and ice will help out quite a bit with controlling both swelling and bruising.
We do recommend being prepared to take up to a week off work. You will likely feel ready to work right away, but it is essential to give your body time to heal. The results will only improve if you give yourself rest. So, even if you feel like the swelling is gone after a single day, take it easy.
While some patients may see the beginning of their results within a couple days, the full results will take anywhere from 9 to 12 months as collagen continues to reproduce. As you heal, your body will produce more and more, giving your skin an increasingly youthful appearance.
How is the Procedure Performed?
From start to finish, the AccuTite procedure takes an hour on average. This can vary if you have decided to combine it with other procedures. Since AccuTite is non-surgical, it is easily done alongside other rejuvenation treatments. During your consultation, Dr. Cole will work with you to develop a personalized plan according to your goals.
If AccuTite is your only treatment for the day, then you’ll only require local anesthesia. Most patients will feel almost nothing from the procedure itself. However, patient comfort is one of our priorities. If you feel anxious about the procedure, speak with Dr. Cole about additional measures we can take to ensure a smooth treatment.
How Long Do Results Last?
AccuTite works by utilizing the body’s own natural response in creating collage production, allowing patients to see long term benefits that can last around 5-10 years. Longevity of your results can be further prolonged in conjunction with a maintenance package of Morpheus8 as well as a good skincare routine.
