While facial treatments such as brow lifts and facelifts are effective at helping patients combat the unwanted signs of aging, they are not the only options available to patients in the area of New York, NY. Dr. Thomas Romo III and his team of Romo Plastic Surgery are pleased to offer less invasive alternatives to may have mild to moderate skin laxity and development of fine lines and wrinkles: Accutite.
What is Accutite?
Accutite is a specialized treatment that can be used for precision contouring, skin tightening, and fat removal. The treatment is performed with a special device that uses radio-frequency assistant lipolysis to break down fat cells in the treatment area and stimulate the body’s natural collagen and elastin production, providing fat removal and fewer fine lines and wrinkles. This is all done with very small incisions, and offers gradual but noticeable results over the course of several months. The Accutite treatment is:
Who is a candidate for Accutite?
During an initial evaluation appointment at Romo Plastic Surgery, our professionals will provide a thorough examination to determine if the patient is a good fit for this or other alternative services available at our practice. In cases where severe skin laxity and fat pockets have developed, patients may still be more suitable for surgical interventions instead. With a proper evaluation, we can make recommendations for patients based on their unique needs.
What can I expect from Accutite treatment?
Patients undergo Accutite treatment with a small device that is positioned under the skin through a tiny incision made in the treatment area. A special probe is then inserted, which is headed to almost 160 degrees F and melts away fat while also stimulating collagen and elastin production. This helps to tighten sagging skin and provide a more youthful appearance within a few months.
