FaceTite and AccuTite Newport Beach
FaceTite is a new procedure that is comparable to a surgical facelift, without the large scars.
FaceTite provides dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck, which was previously only attainable through a surgical procedure such as a facelift. FaceTite utilizes minimally invasive radio-frequency energy to melt fat and tighten skin. AccuTite is the smallest contraction device in cosmetic medicine. It has similar principles to FaceTite but by using a smaller handpiece, more targeted treatment areas are possible. With AccuTite, we are able to apply focal radio-frequency contraction and prevent the need for more invasive or surgery. The AccuTite is the latest in the Radio- Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) family of technologies.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
With FaceTite, any areas on the face and neck with saggy skin can be treated. This includes the double chin, jowls and other areas with deep lines and loose skin.
AccuTite, with the smaller handpiece, can target more specific areas. Common areas for the face include the brows, periorbital region, nasolabial fold, lower face, and neck. It is also common to do smaller treatments in younger patients in the submental area where there was only liposuction previously available. On the body, patients can receive AccuTite for the axilla, upper arms, abdomen etching, inner thighs, and knees..
IS THIS BETTER THAN A FACELIFT?
This is not a substitute for a facelift. It is a great alternative for patients who do not want an invasive surgery with more down time. There are no incisions with this procedure and bruising and swelling are limited. The results from FaceTite are significant but are not the same as a facelift. This is a less traumatic process with a natural looking final result.
WHAT KIND OF PROCEDURE CARE IS REQUIRED?
Since this is a minimally-invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia, most patients can go home and resume regular activities shortly after. Wearing a compression garment may be required depending on the extent of the treatment. There will be some local wound care guidelines given.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results are usually noticeable after 6 weeks. Most patients see significant results around the 3-4 month mark and continuing up to 12 months.
IS THIS SAFE?
AccuTite is part of the Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) family of technologies, which has over 22 peer reviewed clinical publications showing a high level of safety. AccuTite has numerous safeguards built into the technology to ensure uniform and gentle heating that makes the procedure comfortable and effective.
