Loose skin is one of the downsides of the aging process, and while anti-aging creams and serums can help rehydrate your skin, they don’t effectively tighten the skin in a way that makes a noticeable difference. When creams fail you, you need a more powerful solution, and we have it. At Michigan Center for Cosmetic Services in Ann Arbor, MI, we offer AccuTite, a skin tightening treatment that delivers some powerful anti-aging results in as little as one treatment.
What Is AccuTite?
AccuTite is a skin tightening treatment that uses fat-melting technology to address areas that contain stubborn fat and tighten the skin in that same area. This treatment is designed to deliver anti-aging effects to some of the smaller areas of the body that are more difficult to treat with other skin-tightening devices. Not only will it help you achieve firmer skin, but it will help you look and feel years younger. It accomplishes all of these goals and doesn’t require any downtime.
What Does It Treat?
This anti-aging, skin tightening treatment is powerfully effective at tightening loose or drooping skin around the eyes and the brows. The eye area has very thin skin and is one of the first areas to exhibit the signs of aging. The result is crepey skin that looks wrinkled and aged. This treatment can refresh the eye area by correcting crepey skin and smoothing the area. It is a minimally invasive alternative to Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery.
Many patients use this treatment to treat body areas, including the skin along the bra line, abdomen, inner and outer thighs, knees, elbows, and neck. Additionally, it can be used to treat the lines that form around the mouth, which are called nasolabial folds. If you haven’t decided to commit to dermal fillers to smooth these lines and want an alternative, this treatment will address the lines in this area and help your skin look firmer and smoother.
How Does It Work?
We will begin this treatment by preparing the skin. Your chosen treatment area will be numbed so that you remain comfortable for the duration of the treatment. Then, a tiny incision will be made in your treatment area, into which a fine probe will be inserted into the skin. An electrode will be placed on the skin’s surface and will work simultaneously with the probe to send radiofrequency energy between the probe and the electrode.
This energy flow will tighten the skin and increase collagen and elastin production below the skin’s surface. The precise temperature will help soften fat to redistribute it and, in doing so, contour the face so that it looks healthier and younger. The combination of fat-melting and skin tightening technologies will help transform your appearance in the most natural way possible. Lines and wrinkles will soften, and your face will look firmer with far less skin laxity.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Do Treatments Take?
This treatment is performed as an outpatient treatment and takes approximately one hour or less to complete. As soon as your treatment is over, you can resume your regular activities within 24 hours. This treatment is ideal for busy individuals who want to improve their appearance but cannot take time off work or rearrange their schedules to accommodate downtime.
Will I Need Multiple Treatments for Results?
Many skin-tightening treatments require that you follow an extensive regime in which you attend several sessions before you can experience the best results. With AccuTite, you won’t need multiple treatments for results.
Most patients achieve their desired results after only one treatment. Results do vary among patients based on the condition of their skin and their goals. We can provide you with a better idea of what kind of results you can expect during your initial consultation.
Does It Result in Scarring?
One of the downsides of many invasive procedures designed to tighten the skin is that they result in some degree of scarring. One of the benefits of AccuTite is that it will not leave you with a scar. This treatment is minimally invasive, and while it does involve a very small incision, the incision is so small that it will not result in any scarring.
Why Should I Choose AccuTite?
If you are tired of applying under eye creams or eye masks without seeing a significant improvement in the appearance of your skin, or topical products aren’t addressing your skin in the way that you want them to, this treatment will deliver the results that you are products and creams have been unable to. Instead of addressing the skin from its surface, it targets the root cause of skin laxity and treats the skin from the inside out.
Collagen and elastin are two proteins that are essential when you want to attain firmer and tighter skin. It triggers a natural response within the body, resulting in increased collagen and elastin production, which helps your skin look healthier and younger. When you address aging at its source, decreased collagen and elastin production, you can combat the aging process, improve your appearance, and increase your confidence.
How Is AccuTite Different From Other Skin Tightening Treatments?
AccuTite is a specialized treatment design to treat small, hard-to-reach areas of the body. While other treatments may use radiofrequency energy to tighten loose skin in the same way that this treatment does, AccuTite is a specialized treatment designed to target and improve the skin under the eyes and around the mouth, as well as on different body areas.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
You can expect to see and feel a visible improvement in your skin post-treatment, but the best results will take four to six months to appear. Collagen and elastin production takes time, but once you start to see those results, they will be very obvious and dramatic. You’ll notice tighter and firmer skin that looks and feels more like your younger skin.
Once you experience the skin tightening and fat-melting effects of AccuTite, your results will be permanent. This treatment can address the signs of aging, but it cannot stop the aging process. If further collagen loss and the signs of aging begin to affect your skin after your treatment, you can schedule a follow-up appointment to help maintain a youthful appearance and once again tighten your skin and restore collagen.
Can I Combine It With Other Treatments?
This treatment can be combined with other treatments like Morpheus 8 to address additional areas of the body. When you come in for your initial consultation, we can discuss other skin tightening options to treat other areas of your body and create your customized treatment plan that will help you reach all of your body goals.
Is It Safe?
This treatment is not only FDA-approved but is also widely used to treat skin laxity on the face and body. It is a completely safe way to increase collagen production to achieve natural-looking results. The benefit of this treatment is that it was designed with the patient’s safety in mind. The system has built-in cut-off mechanisms that help keep your skin from becoming too hot during treatment.
Many individuals have chosen this treatment to achieve their desired results in a safe and minimally invasive way. It won’t result in scarring; it won’t subject you to side effects, and it won’t require that you plan around an extensive recovery period.
Who Is a Candidate?
The best candidates for this treatment are men and women who want to address skin laxity without undergoing a surgical procedure to do so. This treatment is effective on patients with all different skin types and tones. Candidates typically range from their 30s to their 70s.
The best candidates want an alternative to Blepharoplasty or other invasive skin tightening surgical procedures. They choose this treatment to address skin laxity around the eyes or other areas of the body in a minimally invasive way with little to no downtime.
