What is AccuTite?
AccuTite uses the same bipolar radiofrequency technology as the other InMode “Tite” handpieces and techniques. The AccuTite hand-piece, tip, and probe are all smaller. This has allowed very precise placement of the energy to rejuvenate new areas of the face such as the upper and lower eyelid, upper lip, and brow areas. The AccuTite can also be more easily applied to very localized areas such as the nasolabial “parentheses” folds, melolabial “marionette lines” folds, areas of the midface, and the jowls.
How does AccuTite work?
AccuTite utilizes, in properly trained and anatomically “aware” surgeons, precise and safely placed radiofrequency to rejuvenate, remove unwanted fat, improve wrinkles, and improve folds. AccuTite has safety built in that allows it to be placed in delicate areas while minimizing or nearly eliminating tissue burns. If a temperature surge occurs, the tip immediately stops delivering heat energy until the temperature reduces to a safe level.
How Does AccuTite Help the Appearance Around the Eyes?
Dr. Burroughs is amongst a few oculoplastic surgeons in the country working on the best protocols, so that surgeons may safely and effectively apply this technology for best results. Dr. Burroughs’ extensive experience and history of producing cosmetic bipolar radiofrequency results with FaceTite has led to him being a “key opinion leader” with the Inmode company to advance this technology as a non-surgical option for eyelid and eye brow rejuvenation. This will lead to new and long-lasting results for those who wish to have cosmetic improvements around their eyes without having to have surgery. Dr. Burroughs has already used it around the eyes for improving eyelid contours by tightening the skin and even reducing unwanted fat bulges.
Is AccuTite Safe Around the Eyes?
In the right hands, AccuTite can be very safe when properly used and respecting anatomic planes. This is what makes oculofacial plastic surgeons an ideal choice for having your AccuTite procedure done is, that amongst trained plastic surgeons, they are the most trained and experienced eyelid surgeons. Dr. Burroughs has over twenty years of eyelid surgery experience, and teaches other plastic surgeons at national symposia.
Does AccuTite Hurt?
Most patients experience no discomfort during or after their treatments. You can expect some swelling that can be reduced by wearing the LidLift goggles that Dr. Burroughs was the first to bring to Colorado. Usually the only pain medication you will need is Tylenol.
What is Recovery Like from AccuTite?
You can expect little to no discomfort. There can be some swelling for several days. It is better not to do any cool compresses during the first 24 hours as the heat that has been applied is part of the controlled stimulus for improving collagen production and ideal skin tightening.
Does AccuTite Work?
Yes, and the bipolar applications of radiofrequency are far superior to monopolar applications. Dr. Burroughs has been providing excellent results with high patient satisfaction for years with bipolar radiofrequency. You will usually see noticeable improvements in a few weeks that keep improving up to a year, but most significant at the 6 month point.
