FaceTite vs. AccuTite: Which Is Best for Your Aesthetic Goals?

Published on May 6, 2024

At The Ocean Clinic Dermatology & Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, we specialize in innovative cosmetic procedures like FaceTite and AccuTite. These minimally invasive procedures can be ideal for patients who want to achieve significant skin tightening and contouring improvements without the downtime associated with traditional cosmetic surgery.

Here, we’ll discuss the similarities and differences between FaceTite and AccuTite, so patients considering one or both of the procedures can better understand the benefits and limitations of each.

Ultimately, a consultation with one of our medical providers is the optimal way to find out if you are a candidate for FaceTite or AccuTite. Our providers create a unique treatment plan for each patient based on his or her aesthetic goals, medical history, and other factors, so we can best accommodate their needs.

How Do FaceTite and AccuTite Work?

Both FaceTite and AccuTite employ radiofrequency (RF) energy for fat reduction and skin tightening benefits. During treatment, a small incision will be made, so a tiny cannula can be inserted under the skin’s surface. The external component of the handpiece is guided across the skin’s surface.

RF energy emitted by the device works to heat the targeted tissue internally, liquifying fat and stimulating collagen production and remodeling. FaceTite and AccuTite are thus both great treatment options for patients seeking slimming effects as well as firmer, tighter skin.

Choosing Between FaceTite and AccuTite

Determining whether FaceTite or AccuTite is right for you requires consideration of factors like the areas you wish to target and your desired results.


FaceTite is the go-to option for those seeking comprehensive facial rejuvenation. This procedure works particularly well for larger areas of the face. FaceTite is often recommended to resolve concerns about jowling and submental fullness (double chin), as well as to treat other areas of the face that have deep lines and loose skin.


As the smallest device in the radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) family, AccuTite is an ideal choice for patients with cosmetic concerns in smaller, more delicate areas that require extreme precision to treat. Our providers utilize AccuTite in several areas throughout the face and body, including:

  • Around the eyes
  • Brow/forehead
  • Neck
  • Upper arms
  • Axilla
  • Inner thighs
  • Knees
  • Abdomen (abdominal etching)

Benefits of AccuTite and FaceTite

  • Minimally invasive
  • Less downtime and shorter total recovery time than traditional facial plastic surgery procedures
  • Significant improvement in skin laxity
  • Noticeable fat reduction
  • No post-treatment scarring
  • Long-lasting results
