What is AccuTite?
Skin laxity eventually affects everyone but in different ways. You may notice excess skin on your arms and stomach or even in small areas like under the eyes and on the hands. To combat sagging skin, Janiga MDs offers AccuTite. This is the latest in skin tightening devices from InMode, a leader in the laser and radio-frequency device industry. AccuTite is the smallest minimally invasive radiofrequency device on the market. It uses precision heating to safely and effectively tighten skin in smaller areas such as the under eye and bra fat.
Dr. Timothy Janiga performs the AccuTite procedure in-office with a local anesthetic. Dr. Janiga uses the AccuTite hand-held applicator and places it within the treatment area. The radiofrequency energy will transfer from the device into the skin tissues to melt any fat and tighten the tissue. The system monitors the temperature of the device and tissues in real-time to ensure adequate heating of the fat and skin for optimal tightening.
The AccuTite procedure has been proven effective for facial contouring, skin remodeling, and contouring of small body areas. It has been used for the knees, hands, chin, arms, and under eyes. The AccuTite procedure takes between 20 and 30 minutes per area to complete.
Recovery and Results
Since the AccuTite treatment is minimally invasive, the recovery is quicker than surgical procedures. Some patients may feel sore or tender and have some bruising or swelling for up to a week after the procedure. There is no official downtime, most patients can still resume daily activities within a couple of days of the treatment.
Once fully recovered, patients will start to see the results of the fat reduction and skin contraction.
