With constant advancement in the cosmetic industry, it’s more common than ever to seek out non-surgical treatment options where they’re available. They can have many benefits over surgical procedures, like shorter downtime and fewer risks. Non-surgical skin tightening has become one of the most in-demand options, and both FaceTite and AccuTite are excellent options for achieving your facial contouring and anti-aging goals. Here’s what to know about these two options and how you can benefit.
How Do FaceTite and AccuTite Work?
Both FaceTite and AccuTite are minimally-invasive facial contouring treatments manufactured by InMode. They work by administering radiofrequency energy underneath the skin using a tiny incision and specialized handpiece with internal and external sensors. This process generates gentle heat which achieves a twofold effect – it reduces fatty tissue while also contracting collagen in the deep layers of the skin. This technique is called radiofrequency assisted lipolysis, or RFAL. The result is a “shrink-wrap” effect around your treatment areas with reduction in both stubborn fat and loose skin.
What’s the Difference Between FaceTite and AccuTite?
FaceTite and AccuTite can achieve results using the same comprehensive technique. However, the main difference is in the size of the specialized handpieces designed for your treatment areas. FaceTite accomplishes tightening and fat reduction on larger areas of the face like the jawline or neck. Alternatively, AccuTite is beneficial for smaller areas like the nasolabial folds or the undereyes. Both options can sometimes be used on appropriate areas of the body as well.
What Can I Expect?
FaceTite and AccuTite can be performed right in our Upper East Side office. Treatment requires only local anesthesia, so you’re relaxed and comfortable. A tiny incision is made in your treatment area so the handpiece can reach the deep layers of the skin. Radiofrequency energy generates gentle heat to liquefy fat and contract the skin. There’s no suturing needed, and you can return home directly afterward. Overall, treatment takes about one hour.
Depending on your customized treatment plan, you’ll need only a few days away from strenuous activity. You’ll see results emerge over the following weeks and months with a tighter, more contoured look to your treatment areas. Overall, both FaceTite and AccuTite are excellent ways to boost your confidence and rejuvenate your favorite areas without the need for surgery or extensive downtime.
