Look and Feel Your Best with AccuTite

It’s the perfect time of year to start thinking about body contouring. If you have a bit of stubborn fat in a hard-to-target area, or if you simply want to tighten up your jaw line, you may be a good candidate for AccuTite. It’s one of the latest aesthetic technologies available. AccuTite is a minimally invasive treatment that uses radio frequency energy to target fat and tighten the skin.

Ideal Candidates

Although AccuTite isn’t invasive surgery, it’s still important for the plastic surgeon to verify that it’s safe for you to have this treatment. Share your full medical history with your provider, including a list of any previous procedures you may have had. In general, AccuTite is ideal for individuals who are in good overall health and who are interested in a minimally invasive means of contouring the body.

Treatment Areas

AccuTite is capable of effectively addressing many problem areas on the face and body. Bra fat, also called armpit fat, is one example. It can be hard to target this area through exercise, which is why so many patients having AccuTite request this treatment area. Other potential treatment areas may include:

  • Lower face
  • Neck and jawline
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Brows
  • Upper arms
  • Inner thighs
  • Knees

During your consultation with the plastic surgeon, you should share all of your aesthetic concerns. You might be surprised at how many places AccuTite can be used. Your provider will customize your treatment plan to suit your particular goals.

Procedural Steps

It can take about two hours to perform the AccuTite procedure, depending on how many treatment areas you’ve selected. Since AccuTite isn’t a surgery, a sedative isn’t necessary. However, the provider will apply a local anesthetic to numb the skin. The tip of the AccuTite device is inserted through a pinprick incision in the skin. After your treatment, you should begin seeing results immediately. Your best results can be seen in about six weeks, with continued improvements for up to 12 months.
