What is AccuTite?
AccuTite, also known as “RFAL,” (Radiofrequency Assisted Lipolysis) is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to tighten the skin using precise radiofrequency waves. The device can precisely target areas of the body that are hard to reach and help improve skin laxity and tightness in the treated areas.
AccuTite can be used to help improve different areas, including:
- Eye Bags
- Upper and lower eyelids
- Nasolabial folds
Is AccuTite Safe?
AccuTite is a safe treatment that can be used to help treat patients with different skin types and aesthetic concerns. The device utilizes temperature managing technology that helps control the energy applied to the skin. This will assist in keeping the skin safe from harm while it continues to melt the fat that lies beneath.
The AccuTite Procedure
During the AccuTite treatment session, Dr. Z will begin with the administration of a local anesthetic to help keep you feeling as comfortable as possible during the treatment process. Dr. Z will then make a small needle hole opening through which the AccuTite hand-held device will be inserted to deliver the radiofrequency energy directly into specific areas of the face and body. Once the fat is melted, a thin cannula is used to remove it.
An AccuTite treatment session takes about 20 – 40 minutes to complete. This procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, meaning that you can return home the same day it is performed. Dr. Z is dedicated to providing a safe and comfortable environment when performing any cosmetic procedure and will do his best to ensure that you feel secure and confident when you are undergoing AccuTite.
Recovery After an AccuTite Treatment
AccuTite is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require a long period of recovery afterward. Patients don’t have to worry about a long period of downtime and can expect to return to their normal daily activities within a few days after the treatment. When treating the under eye area, there is a possibility of bruising and swelling can be expected in most cases. Most of the swelling subsides during the first week, however a mild amount can persistent for over 1 week. You will be provided with post-treatment instructions that you will have to follow throughout your recovery process to experience the best results possible.
Good Candidates for AccuTite
AccuTite is a good cosmetic treatment for those who are currently experiencing mild to significant skin laxity and have no desire to undergo highly invasive surgical measures. Dr. Z will perform an initial assessment of your skin and ask you about your medical history to help determine if AccuTite is right for you. If you are in good general health and have realistic expectations, Dr. Z will begin developing your personalized treatment plan.
