What Is AccuTite?

As you age, your face produces less collagen, and the existing collagen stretches out and becomes more disorganized. Outwardly, the skin becomes thinner, looser, and less elastic, which leads to more wrinkle formation. To reverse these conspicuous markers of aging, Facial Plastic Surgery Associates is thrilled to provide AccuTite, a minimally invasive radiofrequency-assisted skin tightening procedure. AccuTite is the smallest minimally invasive radiofrequency contraction device on the market, and it is the counterpart to our popular FaceTite treatment used to treat the lower face and neck. Because of its small size, the AccuTite device is well-suited to treat smaller, more delicate areas of the face. Common facial areas that we treat using the AccuTite include the (1) lateral brows, (2) upper and lower eyelids, (3) nasolabial folds, (4) jowls, and (5) under the chin. Additionally, AccuTite is an excellent complement to other surgical and nonsurgical aesthetic procedures.

How Is AccuTite Performed?

One of our board-certified facial plastic surgeons, Dr. Sean Delaney and Dr. Russell Kridel, personally perform all AccuTite treatments. Depending on your preference, the treatment is performed under local anesthesia or iv sedation. First, the target areas are sterilized and numbed with nerve blocks. The small AccuTite probe is then introduced through a needle poke, and no incisions are required. Next, the probe is advanced back and forth over the treatment area to heat the overlying skin to the target temperature. The radiofrequency energy emitted by the device contracts the collagen fibers in the skin and jump-starts a healing cascade that will stimulate the skin to create more collagen in the months to come. Sessions typically take 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the number of treatment areas. After completing your AccuTite session, you will be provided aftercare instructions.

Facial Plastic Surgery Associates are fantastic. Dr. Delaney has helped my husband regain a normal look around both eyes after a bad accident, without surgery. It is amazing.

I had a bump on my nose that bothered me for years and years. I avoided taking photos like the plague. I finally decided to do something about it. I was so nervous about having surgery, that it took months before I actually visited any doctors. I did a bunch of research and asked around. Dr. Kridel's name would come up alot. So, I went to see him and another doc for a Rhinoplasty consultation. WOW! Did I make the right decision. My nose looks amazing! My friends have given me lots of compliments. I can't walk by a mirror without looking at myself. My confidence got a big boost. I was also surprised that the post-op was so much easier and less painful than I thought it would be. Dr. Kridel's staff was great too. Really put me at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. Kridel to anyone.

I had revision rhinoplasty with Dr. Kridel in March of 2023. It has now been 1 year since my surgery and I am extremely pleased with the results! I originally met with Dr. Kridel in 2017 to discuss my initial rhinoplasty I was contemplating. I loved Dr. Kridel during our first meeting. However, I allowed other people’s (family & friends) opinions of what the procedure should cost and what I needed to have done influence my decision. I had rhinoplasty done in 2019 with a different doctor. 4 years later I had a large divot on one side, the opposite side had multiple subtle bumps, I had to pull my airway open on one side to breath through both nostrils, among other things. When I made the decision to have a revision done in 2023 I started my research over and found a couple doctors who specialized in revisions. At the end of the day I knew in my heart who was the right choice and, based on my previous experience, I decided to go with the doctor I trusted, Dr. Kridel. I was very nervous at my first consultation because I was embarrassed that I was coming back 6 years later asking him to fix what another surgeon did. He was extremely kind, professional, understanding and non judgmental. I was so relieved and happy, I knew right away that this was the right choice. From my initial consultation, my surgery, the follow ups, interactions with the staff and fellows, to a year later… I can’t say enough nice things about Dr. Kridel and his entire staff. Their professionalism is top notch. One thing that I really appreciated was the detailed information packet Dr. Kridel gave me before my surgery. I read every page and by the time I was done I felt like I had an understanding of the entire process, the healing process and what I should expect in the years that follow my procedure. I could go on and on about how wonderful my experience has been. I LOVE my results! Dr. Kridel, thank you for your attention to detail, listening to me, being kind, professional and most of all, my results!

Recovery

The recovery time for AccuTite is significantly shorter than surgery because no incisions are made. It is normal to experience slight skin redness, swelling, and mild bruising in the treatment areas for 7 to 10 days. You may experience some tightness, mild soreness, and temporary numbness or sensations of pins-and-needles for a few days.

The radiofrequency energy delivered by the AccuTite jump-starts the healing cascade to create more collagen and firmer skin. Results typically begin to show around 4 to 5 months after treatment and will continue to improve up to 12 months.

While it may seem intuitive to apply ice or a cold compress to the treated areas after the procedure, you actually want to avoid cooling your face to allow the inflammatory process to take its course so it can stimulate more of a reaction.

You can begin wearing makeup at 72 hours after the procedure. Plan to give yourself 2 to 3 days to recover before returning to work. Also plan to rest for 5 days before exercising or going to the gym again.
