What To Know About AccuTite And FaceTite
If you’re a veteran of the cosmetic treatment industry, you’re probably no stranger to these two terms: FaceTite and AccuTite. But if your familiarity stops there, here’s a great opportunity to learn more about these minimally invasive solutions for facial and body enhancement.
Both FaceTite and AccuTite are radiofrequency-assisted skin tightening and fat melting devices, but are each designed to address specific issues with contouring and skin tightening. FaceTite is designed to work safely in the sub-dermal plane of tissue in the face and neck to coagulate fat and remodel tissue for superior contouring results.
FaceTite uses dual temperature technology that focuses energy precisely in the desired treatment zone, reducing the risk of adverse side effects. In addition to removing and remodeling fat pockets, FaceTite also helps reduce skin laxity by stimulating the dermis to produce more fibroblasts, the cells which produce collagen and elastin, proteins that help give a firm texture and smooth appearance to the face.
AccuTite is a body contouring procedure that utilizes directional radiofrequency energy to assist in tightening skin and subdermal tissue as well as sculpting fat deposits to give patients a highly precise, natural-looking result. It is the smallest and most precise radiofrequency lipolysis device, capable of safely contouring smaller, and more sensitive areas, such as around the eyes and in the neck.
Although frequently used in combination with FaceTite for a non-surgical facelift, AccuTite can also contour other areas of the body, like the upper arms, bra rolls, thighs, and abdomen.
In many cases, FaceTite and AccuTite can achieve excellent results only previously achieved by surgical procedures. However, in cases where there is severe skin laxity or excess skin, AccuTite and FaceTite may not be recommended. Most FaceTite patients are concerned with mild to moderate skin laxity, and may have excess fat they want removed from the chin (double chin). AccuTite patients desire a small to moderate change in the contour of the face or body, most commonly the abdomen, flanks, and neck.
Dr. Angelchik commonly recommends FaceTite procedures for those who have previously had a facelift and want to maintain or refresh the results from that surgery, without needing to go back under the knife.
When your AccuTite or FaceTite procedure is performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Paul Angelchik, you can expect to see dramatic results when fully recovered. For FaceTite procedures, people typically take about a week to a week and a half off of work as swelling and bruising subside. The first few days after the procedure, patients can expect to have bruising, swelling, and redness in the treatment area.
Some results will be visible immediately, although the final appearance takes time, as the body produces more collagen and tightens the skin in the treated area, usually over about 9 months time on average
