Restore a Youthful Appearance with the Non-Surgical Procedure AccuTite
When you are looking to make cosmetic enhancements to your face and other areas of the body, there are a few different non-surgical procedures available. One of these is called AccuTite. AccuTite was developed using the same technology as FaceTite.
What Does the AccuTite Procedure Involve?
AccuTite is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses radio-frequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to help tighten the skin and break up fat cells. The procedure is very precise and can be used on smaller areas that were not previously treatable with other non-surgical methods.
When necessary, the fat cells can be removed during the procedure using liposuction aspiration. If not necessary, your body will absorb the fat cells and remove them from the body through natural processes.
The device used for the AccuTite procedure is designed to deliver RFAL to the skin internally and externally. This is done to help melt fat away while simultaneously tightening the skin.
6 Benefits of AccuTite
AccuTite offers several benefits when performed by a board-certified cosmetic surgeon, including:
- The non-surgical procedure can be performed as an outpatient procedure and eliminates any risks of scarring.
- Local anesthesia is used to make the person comfortable during treatment, which means a fast recovery time and less discomfort.
- AccuTite is perfect to treat smaller areas on the face, as well as other areas on the body.
- It is perfect for reaching those “hard-to-reach” areas that other non-surgical procedures cannot.
- The procedure can be repeated until optimal results are achieved if necessary. Yet, most people only require a single treatment.
- There are no excisions necessary with the procedure.
What Areas of the Body Can Be Used with AccuTite?
AccuTite can be used to treat a wide range of different areas on the body that need improving, including:
• Laugh Lines
• Upper and Lower Eye Lids
• Upper Arms
The AccuTite procedure is perfect for anyone who is showing signs of aging who wants to restore a more youthful appearance when they are not quite ready for surgical cosmetic procedures.
How Soon Can You Notice Accutite Results?
Accutite results can start to be noticed shortly after the procedure. Most people notice that the fatty areas are no longer there. Skin tightening starts to occur following the treatment and is noticeable within six weeks. Skin tightening will continue for up to six to twelve months following treatment.
What Is Accutite Recovery Like?
Recovery is fairly fast compared to surgical procedures. Some soreness and tenderness are normal following the procedure, which can last up to a week. Many people are ready to resume normal activities within a few days following the procedure.
However, your cosmetic surgeon may impose certain restrictions that you should follow to ensure optimal results. For instance, they may require you to wear sunscreen or avoid heavy lifting for a short period.
How Long Does AccuTite Last?
Accutite results can last up to five years from a single treatment! Lifestyle choices also influence how long results last, so it is important to make wise decisions to ensure your procedure lasts longer.
