What Is Discussed During My AccuTite™ Consultation?
Your consultation is important to determine your candidacy and discuss your treatment plan. During your consultation, Dr. Agullo will:
- Take measurements and photos
- Evaluate your skin condition
- Discuss your goals and expectations
- Create a treatment plan
- Explain how to prepare for your AccuTite™ procedure
Your consultation is the best time to ask any questions that you might have about the procedure. For example, if you have any specific health concerns, be sure to bring them up. If you would like to combine AccuTite™ with another procedure, your consultation is the best time to determine if that would be possible.
What Is the AccuTite™ Procedure Like?
AccuTite™ uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to melt away stubborn fat cells and tighten the skin.
First, the target area is numbed with a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the procedure. A small, needle-like probe is then inserted into the skin, and radiofrequency energy is emitted from the probe to an electrode outside of the skin. The device is moved along the treatment area to liquefy the fat and stimulate the skin to contract.
How Should I Prepare for AccuTite™ Treatment?
It is important to note that AccuTite™ cannot be used for weight loss or to replace a healthy lifestyle. It is best to be as close to your ideal weight as possible before your procedure because AccuTite™ is most effective at tightening the skin and will remove only small amounts of fat.
To prepare for your AccuTite™ procedure, you may be advised to:
- Not smoke
- Not drink alcohol
- Avoid certain medications
- Discuss any and all concerns with your surgeon
It is also beneficial to get a good amount of rest and stay hydrated leading up to your procedure, as that can aid in the healing process afterward.
Before & After
Have Other Concerns About AccuTite™?

There is very little recovery time needed after AccuTite™. There may be some slight bruising and soreness that should subside within the first week following treatment. Most patients can return to regular activities within two days.
Is AccuTite™ Painful?
A local anesthetic is used in order to make you comfortable during the procedure. There may be some mild soreness following the procedure, but this pain can usually be handled with over-the-counter medication.
Will AccuTite™ Leave Scars?
AccuTite™ uses a very small cannula and no incisions, so there will be no resulting scars to worry about.
When Will I See My AccuTite™ Results?
Your tighter skin and reduced fat should be visible immediately, and your skin will continue to tighten and smooth over the next few months as new collagen is formed.
How Long Will My AccuTite™ Results Last?
The results of AccuTite™ can last up to five years. A lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and exercise routine can help maintain the results.

The cost of AccuTite™ varies based on the target area and extent of treatment, so the exact price of your AccuTite™ treatment can only be determined after a thorough consultation.

Yes, AccuTite™ can be combined with other procedures. Most commonly, it is combined with fat graft injections, fillers, radiofrequency microneedling (Morpheus8), or thread lifting. To find out if your ideal combination of treatments is possible, ask your surgeon. Some procedures may complement each other well but need to be performed at separate times. Your surgeon will be able to tell you what plan would be best for you.
AccuTite™, BodyTite™, and FaceTite™ use the same technology: radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis. They all work well to reduce fat and tighten skin, but AccuTite™ is designed specifically for addressing smaller areas like the neck, lower face, hands, and upper arms.
Most patients only need one session to achieve their desired results. Results can usually be maintained with a consistent healthy diet and exercise. AccuTite™ may be used more than once, but follow-up appointments should not be necessary.
AccuTite™ has been cleared by the FDA and is safe to use for face and body contouring. Built-in technology controls the temperature to make sure that a safe level of energy is being used.
