It seems we look at our face in the mirror every day and notice our changing appearance. Many people are tired of seeing loose skin, sagging, and fat deposits in their face and neck. While some fat beneath the chin can be eliminated with diet and exercise, even the healthiest lifestyle can’t eliminate certain fat deposits or restore lost definition in our facial contours. These changes can have a discouraging effect on our self-esteem and personal image, but there is a solution to rejuvenate your appearance without surgery.
If you would like to enhance your facial contours by eliminating displaced fat and restoring skin tightness, then AccuTite™ and FaceTite® may be right for you. AcuTite™ and FaceTite® are minimally invasive treatments that utilize the power of radiofrequency energy and liposuction technology to break down and eliminate excess fat and tighten the skin.
AccuTite™ and FaceTite™ do not require general anesthesia. Instead, a local anesthetic is used to numb the areas in the face being corrected. We prioritize our patients’ comfort during the procedure.
A small incision allows a thin probe to be inserted under the skin. This internal probe is moved across the target in a sweeping fashion as an external electrode on the skin’s surface creates an electrical circuit to the internal probe. For your safety, the tissue temperature is carefully controlled and monitored.
Fat cells are heated, causing them to loosen, liquefy, and eventually break down, which allows them to be easily absorbed and eliminated by the face’s metabolic cycle. Any leftover liquefied fat cells are then taken out with a small cannula (hollow tube) that is inserted beneath the skin.
The radiofrequency energy raises the temperature in the addressed facial area, which contracts the skin and, in turn, tightens the connective tissues beneath the skin. The heat produced by the radiofrequency energy also stimulates the production of collagen in the target area, which is known to improve skin elasticity.
Local anesthetic is applied to reduce irritation and discomfort. Subsequently, it is common for some irritation or slight soreness to occur, but this can easily be soothed with over-the-counter pain medication.
AcuTite™ and FaceTite® are minimally invasive procedures that do not cause significant scarring. Downtime is not required, although there may be some bruising and soreness that subside within one week. The majority of patients are known to return to regular activities within two days. Despite recovery being a smooth and simple process, it is still a good idea to plan on taking a bit of time off from work.
Your AcuTite™ and FaceTite® results should be immediately noticeable, but ideal results will continue to become pronounced for up to six months after the procedure. AccuTite™ and FaceTite® help to support your face’s metabolism, which allows your results to continue to progress over the several weeks and months succeeding the procedure. Your skin cells will continue to tighten and fatty tissue will continue to break down and be flushed out of your face.
