What Is Accutite?
AccuTite is the smallest of the three RFAL devices. Its size and settings are designed to sculpt smaller areas such as nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth or even a sagging brow. Though smaller, the AccuTite treatment achieves the same outstanding results as its sister devices.
Am I a Candidate For AccuTite?
Adults interested in skin tightening and/or fat reduction in a localized area may be good candidates for AccuTite. The treatment is commonly performed on the:
- Bra fat near the underarms
- Upper arms
Benefits of AccuTite
The RFAL technology in the AccuTite device offers several benefits. The treatment is minimally invasive, requiring only a small nick in the skin to access deeper layers of tissue. This allows the doctor to perform the procedure using only a local anesthetic. The device has built-in monitoring and shut-off mechanisms that prevent overheating that could damage surrounding tissue. Because the applicator is small, it can achieve precise sculpting in smaller areas that are typically more challenging. The directional energy delivered by treatment also achieves long-term tissue tightening. Clinical studies indicate that results can last 5 or more years.
What Areas Can AccuTite Treat?
AccuTite is revolutionizing in-office minimally invasive procedures. Hard to reach areas are now possible to treat with pinpoint accuracy.
Any areas with saggy skin or excess fat can be treated. Common areas for the face include the brows, periorbital region, nasolabial fold, lower face, and neck. On the body, patients can receive AccuTite for the axilla, upper arms, abdomen etching, inner thighs, and knees.

How Does AccuTite Treatment Work?
AccuTite treatment begins with the application of local anesthetic. This may include minor injections of a numbing agent into the area where the nick will be made in the skin. After numbing, the doctor uses the small cannula applicator to deposit radiofrequency energy beneath the skin via the internal electrode. The energy is directed toward the surface of the skin, where the external electrode passes over the surface. This directional heating melts subcutaneous fat while also causing collagen fibers to tighten. Microcannulas may be used to remove liquefied fat. Depending on the treatment area, the procedure may be done in as little as twenty minutes.
Is AccuTite Treatment Safe?
AccuTite is part of the Radiofrequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) family of technologies, which has over 26 peer reviewed clinical publications showing a high level of safety. AccuTite has numerous safeguards built into the technology to ensure uniform and gentle heating that makes the procedure comfortable and effective.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
Results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable after 6 weeks and continuing up to 12 months.
AccuTite is a minimally invasive procedure performed with a very small wand under local anesthesia or light sedation. Post procedure, patients can go home the same day and resume regular activities shortly after. Depending on the treatment area, wearing a compression garment may be recommended.
