AccuTite: A New Option for Cosmetic Eye Enhancement
"Eyes are the windows to the soul..."
They are also one of the areas that tends to age us most. Commonly, patients present with complaints of tired-looking eyes, or sagging, lax, wrinkling skin that leaves them looking older than they feel. As skin matures, its production of collagen and elastin slows down and skin loses its elasticity and sags. While this occurs everywhere in the body, they eye area is even more susceptible to signs of aging as the skin is very thin. In addition, as the tissues in this area weaken, fat can creep into the under-eye area causing puffiness in the eye area.
Enter AccuTite, the newest Radio Frequency (RF) technology offered by Dr. Alison R. Tendler. AccuTite is a premium skin-tightening and fat-melting treatment, used for revitalizing the entire eye area. The device offers ultimate precision for the delicate area around the eyes. With Accutite there is no surgery, no scars, and downtime is minimal.
How Does it Work?
The AccuTite device provides controlled RadioFrequency (RF) energy into the skin tissue, which stimulates the production of collagen and liquefies fatty deposits. The device achieves and maintains the temperatures needed to remodel collagen and reverse the effects of ageing. Because the device is so small, Dr. Tendler can access the small, delicate areas around the eyes. Over time, skin becomes tighter and stronger as new collagen is produced. Peak results are generally seen between three to six months after treatment.
What is the Downtime Associated with AccuTite?
While the procedure is considered minimally invasive, you will experience some redness, bruising and/or swelling in the treated area. The treatment area may also feel tender. The swelling should start to ease throughout the week, and the bruising should also gradually fade. Note however that some swelling can persist for up to four weeks.
AccuTite can also be combined with other treatments as part of a more specialized plan for your own goals. During your consultation with Dr. Tendler, the team will further discuss these options with you. To set up a consultation to see if you are a candidate for AccuTite, please call us at 605-306-2020.
