It seems we look at our face in the mirror every day and notice our changing appearance. Many people are tired of seeing loose skin, sagging, and fat deposits in their face and neck. While some fat beneath the chin can be eliminated with diet and exercise, even the healthiest lifestyle can’t eliminate certain fat deposits or restore lost definition in our facial contours. These changes can have a discouraging effect on our self-esteem and personal image, but there is a solution to rejuvenate your appearance without surgery.
If you would like to enhance your facial contours by eliminating displaced fat and restoring skin tightness, then AccuTite™ and FaceTite® in Atlanta may be right for you. AccuTite™ and FaceTite® are minimally invasive treatments that utilize the power of radiofrequency energy and liposuction technology to break down and eliminate excess fat and tighten the skin.
Sagging Facial Tissues
Facial and Submental Fat
AccuTite™ and FaceTite™ do not require general anesthesia. Instead, a local anesthetic is used to numb the areas in the face being corrected. We prioritize our patients’ comfort during the procedure.
A small incision allows a thin probe to be inserted under the skin. This internal probe is moved across the target in a sweeping fashion as an external electrode on the skin’s surface creates an electrical circuit to the internal probe. For your safety, the tissue temperature is carefully controlled and monitored.
Fat cells are heated, causing them to loosen, liquefy, and eventually break down, which allows them to be easily absorbed and eliminated by the face’s metabolic cycle. Any leftover liquefied fat cells are then taken out with a small cannula (hollow tube) that is inserted beneath the skin.
The radiofrequency energy raises the temperature in the addressed facial area, which contracts the skin and, in turn, tightens the connective tissues beneath the skin. The heat produced by the radiofrequency energy also stimulates the production of collagen in the target area, which is known to improve skin elasticity.
Local anesthetic is applied to reduce irritation and discomfort. Subsequently, it is common for some irritation or slight soreness to occur, but this can easily be soothed with over-the-counter pain medication.
AccuTite™ and FaceTite® are minimally invasive procedures that do not cause significant scarring. Downtime is not required, although there may be some bruising and soreness that subside within one week. The majority of patients are known to return to regular activities within two days. Despite recovery being a smooth and simple process, it is still a good idea to plan on taking a bit of time off from work.
Your Atlanta AccuTite™ and FaceTite® results should be immediately noticeable, but ideal results will continue to become pronounced for up to six months after the procedure. AccuTite™ and FaceTite® help to support your face’s metabolism, which allows your results to continue to progress over the several weeks and months succeeding the procedure. Your skin cells will continue to tighten and fatty tissue will continue to break down and be flushed out of your face.
The cost of AccuTite™ and FaceTite® will vary depending on the number and size of the areas addressed as well as the extent of treatment required. The price may also include anesthesia fees, surgeon’s fees, and compression garment costs. You will be given a more precise cost of the treatment during your first consultation.
AccuTite™ and FaceTite® are innovative treatments for men and women who would like to enjoy the advantages of facial contouring without extensive surgery or downtime.
You may be a good candidate for AccuTite™ and FaceTite® if you:
A consultation and medical evaluation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons is the ideal method to determine if AccuTite™ and FaceTite® are right for you. During your consultation, you will get a chance to discuss each of your specific goals and expectations for your transformation. You will also be evaluated so your surgeon can counsel you on whether these treatments can properly satisfy your goals.
The best way to prepare for your AccuTite™ and FaceTite® procedure is to avoid:
To prepare, you should also:
Your surgeon will give you thorough instructions on how to get ready for your procedure. After these instructions are given, it is paramount you follow them carefully to reduce the risk of complications during and following your treatment.
These are not considered weight loss procedures and cannot be used to remove significant amounts of fat or treat characteristics of obesity. AccuTite™ and FaceTite® are contouring treatments that can remove a moderate amount of fat deposits and aid in skin tightening. If more significant amounts of fat need to be removed, a surgical liposuction procedure may be recommended. If extensive skin tightening is required, you patient may want to consider an evaluation for a facelift.
While AccuTite™ and FaceTite® are highly productive treatments that can boost the face’s disintegration of fat, your results can be affected by significant weight increase. The fat cells eliminated will be gone permanently, but weight gain can cause the fat cells that remain to develop in size, thus fattening the shape of the face. If you wish to maintain your results, you should follow a healthy eating plan and consistent athletic routine. This will also help counteract the effects of aging on the face.
The radiofrequency energy of AccuTite™ and FaceTite® can provide skin tightening, but it cannot get rid of dramatically stretched or drooping skin. Prospective patients who have gone through a substantial amount of weight loss often require a more thorough lifting procedure such as a surgical facelift or a surgical neck lift. They are also unable to improve dramatic sagging in the eyelids that eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) would be needed for. If you wish to improve other areas of the face more extensively, be sure to mention these concerns during your consultation.
While the revolutionary CoolSculpting® treatment also eliminates unwanted fat, it does not use radiofrequency energy like AccuTite™ and FaceTite®. CoolSculpting® uses a technology called cryolipolysis that freezes the fat, and it is used on trouble areas of the body rather than the face. Once the fat is frozen with non-surgical CoolSculpting®, the body safely eliminates the dead fat cells through your body’s natural metabolic processes, so no incisions are needed. AccuTite™ and FaceTite® are minimally invasive treatments because small incisions are made to directly remove the fat once it has been liquefied with the radiofrequency energy.
