By using radio frequency-assisted lipolysis, the Accutite system is able to melt pockets of fat and tighten loose or sagging skin simultaneously. This minimally invasive procedure works by transferring radio frequency energy in the form of heat to tighten skin through tissue coagulation, destroying unwanted fat and stimulates the production of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to promote tighter, firmer skin.
Recent studies have shown that radio frequency-assisted lipolysis technology has greater skin tightening potential than other FDA approved non-invasive skin tightening devices. Results are similar to surgical treatments, but without any of the long recovery times or discomfort traditionally experienced.

The Accutite treatment is suitable for many patients but will give the most impactful results if you have an active lifestyle but want to shift fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise. Those who have unwanted fat and loose skin will also be good candidates for this treatment.
Pain is something which depends greatly on your threshold, however, most patients report minimal discomfort during treatment. Many say the most painful part is the initial injection of numbing cream at the beginning of the procedure.
There are not many side effects to be wary of with Accutite. Usually, with radio frequency treatments there is the risk of thermal burns, but the advanced technology in the Accutite device means we can monitor the heat and makes thermal injuries extremely unlikely.
The Accutite device is tiny but mighty, so you may notice some improvement to your skin immediately after the first treatment. Most patients will notice roughly 30-40% of the results once all post-treatment swelling has gone down after 4-6 weeks. However, your treated area will continue to improve, with final results peaking around 6 months.
