What is AccuTite?
- Posted on: Sep 20 2019
Accutite is a amazing treatment offered with InMode’s EmbraceRF device and is sometimes referred to as “baby FaceTite”, which is the main non-surgical tightening treatment performed with this laser. AccuTite utilizes RFAL (radio frequency-assisted liposuction) for thermal energy to tighten and remove excess fat, just like FaceTite. AccuTite is the smallest minimally invasive radio frequency (RF) contraction device available on the market. The biggest difference between FaceTite and AccuTite are the sizes of the devices. Accutite was designed to treat smaller, more delicate areas of the face. AccuTite’s technology also stands out from other facial tightening devices are the safeguards. This machine has built in safeguards that protect the patient from possible burning. These safeguards have the ability to turn off RF energy if it gets too hot.
Area(s) treated with AccuTite:
- periorbital area (around the eyes)
- smile lines (nasolabial folds)
- lines around the mouth (marionette lines)
Who’s a good Candidate for AccuTite?
AccuTite is for anyone who has mild skin laxity. Accutite may also be for an individual is not open to surgical solutions.
Benefits of AccuTite
- no down-time
- minimal-to-no pain
- minimal bruising
- no large scars
- can be done in-office
- no general anesthesia
What Should I Expect with an AccuTite treatment?
AccuTite is able to target these smaller areas with precise delivery and excellent results. Just like FaceTite, AccuTite is done in-office under local anesthesia to minimize pain and discomfort. On the surface of the face, a hand-held device is used to pass radio frequency energy through to the internal electrode (cannula under the skin). Once the fat is melted, it is automatically removed through the cannula.
Depending on the amount of area(s) being treated at once, this minimally invasive procedure can take anywhere between 15-40 minutes. Patients typically experience 2-3 days of downtime. Normal activities can be resumed within 1 to 3 days after treatment. Over the next several weeks, the face will be swollen and bruising is common. Once swelling and bruising start to subside, new collagen will form and results will become more apparent.
After an AccuTite treatment we recommend complimenting this procedure with injectable such as Botox and/or fillers to prevent and maintain facial wrinkles and signs of aging.
