Understanding Exactly How Accutite Treatments Work

By October 23, 2021No Comments

A lot of people desire to have smooth skin. But who doesn’t? The presence of wrinkles, lines, or loose skin is all normal. However, there is still some satisfaction in seeing these problem areas go away.

Unfortunately, several factors can negatively impact the condition of our skin. Genetics, hormones, and certain health conditions can affect the skin’s appearance. The world’s ever-changing climate and temperature also compromise the skin’s protective barrier. Stress, vices, unhealthy diet, and even lack of sleep can speed up the natural aging process which can manifest easily on the skin.

While there are many over-the-counter medications you can use or home remedies you can follow to improve your skin, these may take a while to show some effects. One effective way in remodeling your skin and treating your problem areas that offer quick results is through AccuTite.

What Is AccuTite?

AccuTite is a skin tightening treatment that doesn’t require surgery. It is a minimally invasive radiofrequency technique that contracts the skin and reduces unwanted fat. This is a safe and powerful procedure that helps improve one’s appearance. Here are some of the things AccuTite can do:

  • Lifts and tightens sagging brows
  • Reconstructs the lower and upper eyelids
  • Reduces marionette lines appearing at the corners of the mouth and run down your chin
  • Corrects nasolabial folds or laugh lines running from the nose down to the sides of the mouth
  • Tightens loose neck skin
  • Reduces armpit fat
  • Contours the upper arm
  • Contracts loose skin in the abdominal area
  • Contours the outer and inner thighs and reduces cellulite
  • Tightens drooping skin in the knees
  • Reduces wrinkles and volumizes the hands

AccuTite Vs Facelift

A facelift is an effective way in reinstating one’s natural facial form. However, it requires a very invasive surgical procedure. The surgery involves deeper repositioning methods. It is also paired with fat injections or dermal filler injections to accentuate face volume. You can also read FaceTite Better than a Facelift?

AccuTite, on the other hand, can also deliver significant facial structure improvements. But the procedure doesn’t call for invasive surgery. Unlike facelifts, this non-surgical treatment does not manipulate tissues. Hence, it encourages the body to naturally tighten superficial tissue.

The Procedure

Since AccuTite is incision and scalpel-free, the procedure can be done in an office setting. However, you need to make sure that the clinic and the staff are certified to conduct an AccuTite treatment above everything else. The procedure uses a device that relies on radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) technology. With extreme precision and accuracy, this small device has the power to deliver energy underneath the skin. The internal radiofrequency technology helps address the problem areas of the face, neck, and body.

Before using the device, the doctor applies local anesthesia beneath the skin to create numbness. Then, the doctor will create a tiny incision to insert a small probe wherein the radiofrequency energy will pass through. This will go deep into the skin layers with heat that will dissolve fat cells. It also sets off the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. The treatment can last from 20 to 45 minutes but the duration depends on the size of the problem area.

Because fat cells are eliminated, the treated areas become slimmer and more youthful. Even after the procedure is completed, collagen formation continues in the deeper tissue. As a result, the skin regains its firmness and volume. Even with just one session, the results can last up to years.

Post-AccuTite Treatment

After the AccuTite treatment, you will most likely notice improvements in your skin. For others, results show better after the post-treatment swelling subsides which is usually between four to six weeks. The best part is even after the procedure, the treated area continues to heal and processes fat cells out of the body. You will notice greater results four to six months after the treatment.

With AccuTite being minimally invasive, there is no downtime after the treatment. Patients are discharged home and go back to their normal routine in about two to three days after the procedure. For best results, patients can wear a compression garment.

Safety

AccuTite is one of the safest cosmetic procedures available. It is also cleared for use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The high-precision radio frequency device has a temperature sensor that monitors both the temperature on the outer surface skin and the dermis under the skin. If it determines that the temperature gets too hot, it automatically shuts off the energy. That is why you can be assured that there will be no skin-burning risks or any potential damage that may happen during the treatment.

Why You Should Have an AccuTite Treatment?

To recap, here are the key benefits you can take advantage of should you decide to go through an AccuTite treatment:

Minimally Invasive

AccuTite can tighten the skin and melt fat without invasive surgery. It uses a radiofrequency-dependent device that transmits heat to the skin. Also, it doesn’t need general anesthesia.

Quick Procedure

The entire treatment lasts only under an hour. This depends per patient and on the areas needed to be treated. The patient can proceed with their usual routine shortly after the session.

Minimal to No Side Effects

Unlike traditional laser treatments, you will not experience irritation, skin redness, or any other side effects. Patients will only experience minor swelling and bruising. The AccuTite’s temperature sensor ensures that the heat remains at the appropriate level to avoid any risk for burns.

Immediate and Long-Lasting Results

AccuTite results show up immediately after the session. Improvements will continue to manifest after a few months. AccuTite is so effective that its results can last up to years. Typically, a single treatment is all that is required.
