Face & Body AccuTite Q & A

What is AccuTite?

AccuTite is a face and body contouring treatment that both tightens skin and reduces targeted fat. To do so, AccuTite uses a form of energy called radiofrequency through a probe that goes beneath your skin.

The radiofrequency heats deep and superficial tissues in small areas where precision is key, like your brow area, jawline, and around your mouth. It can also effectively address loose skin and extra fat around the knees, wrists, upper arms, and other areas of the body.

The heat causes your skin and tissues to constrict and become tighter. At the same time, the energy damages fat cells in the area and results in a collagen remodeling process that lasts for 9-12 months after treatment.

What can AccuTite do?

You can see stunning results with AccuTite by targeting areas that could do with a little less skin laxity and fewer or smaller pockets of fat. Your Excel Medicine provider helps you decide where to contour with AccuTite and how many treatment sessions it’ll take to meet your goals.

AccuTite treatments offer a tighter and more contoured appearance for areas like your:

  • Brows
  • Upper and lower eyelids
  • Smile lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Jowls and jawline
  • Back
  • Upper arms
  • Hands and wrists
  • Knees

Compared to other treatments with similar results, AccuTite’s precision stands out. This is important for small areas that need careful targeting as well as delicate areas that require a little extra caution.

What should I expect during the AccuTite procedure?

When you come in for face or body AccuTite at Excel Medicine, your provider injects local anesthesia before starting the official treatment process. The anesthesia numbs your skin on the surface and deep enough for the probe to enter the underlying tissues without causing pain.

As heat goes through the probe into the targeted tissues, radiofrequency travels between the probe and an electrode your provider places on your skin. While the system generates a lot of heat, it has also been built with a safeguarding system that shuts it off before burning you.

Your provider places a cannula, or tube, in your skin alongside the heat-generating probe and suctions melted fat cells out of the region. You’ll need about three days of downtime, and you should avoid strenuous exercise for about a week as your tissues recover from AccuTite.
