Have you noticed small, pesky areas of fat or loose skin that bother you the most? Many patients complain about these that they can’t exercise or freeze away, really want to see them gone but don’t want surgery! Fortunately, we now have Accutite—the skin tightening treatment, also referred to as “RFAL,” (Radio Frequency Assisted Lipolysis) designed specifically for small or hard to reach areas. 

Accutite is a ground-breaking, minimally invasive technology designed to tighten skin. Since there are no incisions and no scars, and minimal recovery period, this has rapidly become a go-to procedure for many of my patients.

Areas Accutite treats

It is ideal for small problem areas that have minor skin laxity and excess fat. I am excited to bring this procedure to my patients and treat many areas, including both small facial and body areas:

  • Facial treatment areas: From your brows, eye areas, to jowls, jawline, lower face and down to your neck, Accutite can tighten sagging skin to give you a more youthful profile without surgery. 
  • Body treatment areas: We have so many areas we can treat with Accutite including bra fat, labia, and knees. We have two larger hand pieces with the same technology, and can be used throughout the body for all types of problem areas.

Accutite FAQs

Q: Is it safe?

A: Patient safety is always important to us. Please know that Accutite has been FDA cleared and is a safe procedure. 

Q: How much downtime should I expect?

A: You’ll have some swelling and redness, but that’s about it. Plan on only a few days of downtime. You’ll be able to return to your everyday activities after 1 – 3 days.

Q: What results can I expect??

A: You can expect to see tighter, smoother skin. Over the next six months, your results will continue to improve. And the best part? The results are permanent as long as you don’t gain a significant amount of weight since that can increase the size of the remaining fat cells. Keep in mind that, as time goes by, you’ll continue to age, and you may see other signs skin laxity or fat deposits that are troublesome and you’ll want to “correct.”

Q: What if I need a larger area done but still don’t want surgery?

A: The good news is that for larger areas needing skin tightening, we offer FaceTite and BodyTite. Both provide significant, long-term improvements in tightening and contouring.

Q: How do I know if it’s right for me?

A: If you feel you may need but are not ready for, surgery, Accutite may be the right option for you. It can tighten the skin and remove a small amount of fat, giving you a smoother, younger-looking appearance without surgery. Best candidates maintain their ideal weight and have mild skin laxity. It is perfect for patients who want near-surgical results without scars and with minimal downtime.
