FaceTite and AccuTite are two forms of radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL). RFAL is an advanced technology for combined skin tightening and fat reduction and when used on the face, it can be considered a non-surgical facelift. The main difference between these technologies is that the FaceTite procedure can be used for larger treatment areas like the cheeks, jawline, and neck while the AccuTite device has a smaller handpiece that can effectively target small areas like the under-eyes or nasolabial folds around the mouth.
RFAL is delivered through a small probe under the skin. The radiofrequency energy melts unwanted fat cells, stimulates collagen production, and tightens existing collagen and elastin fibers in the deep layers of the skin. As a result, the treated areas are lifted, skin is firmed, and youthful volume is restored. FaceTite and AccuTite can be performed separately or combined into one treatment for full-face rejuvenation.
Patients who are not candidates for plastic surgery or those looking for a less invasive option are great candidates for FaceTite and AccuTite. Patients should also be in overall good health without an active skin infection or history of irregular scarring or bleeding problems. If you are determined to be a candidate, the following conditions can be treated:
- Moderate skin laxity (loose skin)
- Moderate to severe wrinkles
- Fine lines around the eyes and mouth
- Double chin
At the start of your FaceTite or AccuTite treatment, the area will first be numbed with local anesthesia so that you will not feel any pain or discomfort. A tiny incision will be made under the chin, near the ears, or another easily concealed area, and the probe will be inserted under the skin. You may feel a mild warmth as the radiofrequency energy heats the skin but this will not be painful.
Since this is a minimally invasive procedure, there are only a few days of downtime. Mild swelling and bruising are not uncommon but will gradually improve and can be alleviated with cold compresses and anti-inflammatory medication. Avoiding sun exposure and strenuous activity for about one week will also help minimize swelling. Smoother skin will be noticeable after a few days but complete results can take a few weeks to develop as fat is flushed from the area and collagen fibers regenerate.
