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.

Dr. Delaney is warm, insightful, and an excellent facial plastic surgeon. I have recently seen him for tear trough fillers; he took the time to explain the process, the tools he was using, and had no qualms with addressing any of my concerns before he began the procedures. He is passionately invested in the aesthetics and the quality of his work, while being equally concerned with his patients' well-being and their satisfaction with the overall outcome. A wonderful doctor with comprehensive knowledge in his field, he is someone I highly recommend if you are looking for superior results and exceptional care.

Dr. Delaney did an amazing job with my turbinate hypertrophy and rhinoplasty surgery. He was incredibly skilled and provided thorough information throughout the process. I'm extremely happy with the results—I no longer have significant sinus problems, and I love my new nose. It’s very subtle and fits my face perfectly.

Dr. Kridel is a brilliant, compassionate surgeon (artist) who delivered the most natural appearance for my Sinuplasty-Rhinoplasty procedure. For decades every doctor i went to said ‘you have a deviated septum’. Honestly I put this surgery off for decades. There were a variety of reasons for the delay including recovery time, how I would look and which surgeon to select. I cannot thank Dr. Kridel & his staff & the nurses that took such good care of me. I have never breathed better in my life. The septum was approximately 90% closed. No one can believe I only had nose surgery. They swear I’ve had a facelift.! I sleep better. I feel better. I never have earaches anymore, and my eyes are as white as snow. I am a raving fan and am happy to give a 100% recommendation to Dr. Kridel & team. Sharon Williams Kirwan Houston, TX

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.
