Have you been wanting to do something about a stubborn double chin or loose skin on your lower face and neck, but you aren’t ready to commit to a major surgery? Whether you are deterred by the scars, the price, the fear of anesthesia, or the downtime, now a noticeable improvement can be achieved with virtually no visible scars, little or no anesthesia, and next-to-no downtime! FaceTite and AccuTite harness the power of radiofrequency to tighten loose tissues and skin.
FaceTite and AccuTite are powered by directional radiofrequency energy that results in three-dimensional tissue remodeling by heating collagen and through fat coagulation. The coagulation of fat using RF-induced heat results in radiofrequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL) – killing fat at the same time as it tightens the fascia and tissues in between and around the fat cells. FaceTite and AccuTite differentiate themselves from other RF devices because the radiofrequency is delivered directionally through the skin from the inside out instead of just over the skin.
This means that heat energy transfer across the skin is precisely controlled, allowing for measurable improvements in skin tightness as collagen shrinks when heated. Like liposuction, it requires small incisions, so it is considered a surgical procedure. However, FaceTite and AccuTite are minimally invasive with virtually no downtime and may require only numbing injection and no anesthesia, depending on whether it is coupled with other procedures.
FaceTite and AccuTite are smaller editions of the BodyTite system that have been specially developed to target small, defined areas on the face and neck, or other petite areas of the body that must be addressed with the utmost precision. In just one treatment, FaceTite can provide significant improvements to the contour of the face and small body areas. Using RFAL technology, FaceTite is seen as the next best thing to a traditional facelift, without the associated significant scars and downtime. AccuTite can be used to target even smaller areas for more refined tightening and lifting, such as the brows, eyelids, laugh lines, or minimally invasive labia reduction.
I decided to consult with Dr. Rapaport when my puffy under eye bags and dark circles were becoming more and more noticeable even after a good night's rest. After a detailed consultation, we decided on Accutite. I can't recommend this procedure enough! The puffiness under my eyes is significantly better and the dark circles are almost gone. In addition to significantly improving my puffiness and dark circles, there's very little down time and the procedure itself is quick and painless. Also, the results keep improving for up to a year - amazing! This procedure is an excellent option for someone who's looking to drastically improve under eye bags and dark circles who may not be ready for blepharoplasty.
A thin probe beneath the skin is coupled with a head that passes above the skin to apply bipolar, directional energy through the fibers that give your tissues structure and shape. This RF energy causes these connective tissues to shrink and contract. This procedure is most often coupled with liposuction for several reasons. When accompanied by liposuction, the BodyTite handpiece can use the same small incisions, numbing, and anesthesia as the liposuction procedure. When fat has been emptied out from underneath the skin, those tissues now have less underlying support where the fat used to be causing them to sag.
By causing contraction and tightening of the underlying fibroseptal network of connective tissue, the BodyTite and FaceTite systems help to combat skin sagging after these procedures. Additionally, the RFAL technology kills fat cells as it interacts with them, and liposuction will suck out those dead fat cells, helping your body to clear them out of your system so you can see results faster. Even when coupled, these procedures have very minimal downtime, can be performed with no anesthesia or light sedation, and patients can be back at work 3-4 days later. After the RFAL treatments, patients are instructed to wear a discreet compression garment under their clothes for around 6 weeks, in order to achieve maximal results.
Created by Dr. David P. Rapaport to address multiple age-related flaws in the face and neck, the “Trifecta”, minimally invasive facelift utilizes the remarkable power of radiofrequency treatments like FaceTite, AccuTite and Morpheus8 combined with the tried-and-true power of mini-liposuction to beautifully contour and firm the skin. The “Trifecta” can help to minimize sagging, tighten the skin, and reduce stubborn submental fat, all in a procedure that lasts less than 1 hour under local anesthesia.
