Fat removal with AccuTite | Facelift without Surgery
What is AccuTite?
AccuTite by InMode is a minimally invasive procedure that tightens skin using the latest in radiofrequency technology to improve skin laxity and tightness in problem areas around the body. Accutite uses radiofrequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL), which tightens skin and liquefies fat cells, essentially melting the fat away.
How does AccuTite Work?
AccuTite is a minimally invasive technology designed to tighten skin in small or hard to reach areas. AccuTite passes radiofrequency current through the fat and skin resulting in: Breakdown of fat cells, which are then absorbed by the body. Skin tightening. Stimulation of collagen production promoting firmed skin. Shortening of the attachments that connect the skin to the deeper layers of your soft tissue.
Am I a good candidate for AccuTite?
Are you struggling with skin laxity? Do you want a more youthful appearance? Then AccuTite is an option for you. The best candidates for AccuTite are Active individuals with small areas of diet- and exercise-resistant fat or loose skin. Individuals who have unwanted fat with no associated loose skin Individuals who want to have a procedure such as a face lift or neck lift but want to avoid invasive surgery and scarring.
What to Expect during the procedure?
Upon being greeted by our lovely team your medical history and aesthetic interests will be recorded. Given that AccuTite is a minimally invasive procedure, no scalpels or general anesthesia are needed. The treatment area will first be numbed with a local anesthetic. Once the area is numb, the AccuTite hand-held cannula applicator is inserted into the treatment area and radiofrequency (RF) is transferred directly into the fat with an internal electrode. The RF energy then travels up through the tissues to the external electrode on the skin surface.
Depending on the treated areas, microcannulas may then be used to remove the melted fat and oil.

Is AccuTite Safe?
AccuTite is completely safe and is FDA approved. AccuTite is equipped with advanced temperature sensing technology to prevent damage to the skin and dermis and will automatically shut off the radio frequency energy if it gets too hot. This means there’s no risk of burning your skin.
How Does AccuTite Compare to a Facelift?
During a facelift, the surgeon repositions deeper structures such as bone, muscle, fat and skin to a more youthful position. Typically, traditional facelifts are enhanced with fat injections or dermal filler injections to accentuate mid-face volume. AccuTite does not manipulate tissues as a facelift does; the use of radiofrequency causes natural tightening of superficial tissue. The result is smoother skin, a sharper jawline, and tighter skin on the neck. Ultimately also achieving a younger look that typically lasts up to 5 years.
