AccuTite in Guelph
Before & After
*Please note some of the before and after images may include a combination of different procedures. Our goal is always to optimize outcomes and sometimes that is best achieved with a combination treatments. The goal of the galleries is not to highlight just the treatment itself but the possibilities of a carefully constructed treatment plan and to achieve the best results. Individual results may vary and these before and after photos do not guarantee that anybody and or everybody who does these procedures will achieve the same or similar results.
As we enter our mid 30s, Our skin starts to loose its collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic acid – the main components of the skin that are responsible for giving our skin a youthful radiance, suppleness, strength and elasticity. With a loss of these components we begin notice the telltale signs of aging – Degradation, Deflation and Descent.
While a proper skin care regiment along with hydration, sleep, stress reduction, regular diet and exercise may help to slow down father time, we may reach a point where our skin needs more help to remain looking its best longer.
At derma skin institute we have numerous techniques and technologies to slow down father time. Our lead cosmetic and aesthetic dermatologist, Dr Sajic has developed the 5 Dimension Skin Lift that addresses the aging components of Degradation, Deflation and Descent in all 5 Dimesions of the skin – Bone, Fat, Deep skin tissue, Skin surface/texture and Muscle.
AccuTite™ is a critical component in our approach to avoid the dreaded overfilled look and to delay surgery. Specially designed to give the best results without surgery or a surgical face lift, AccuTite can add unparalleled skin tightening component to the liquid face lift with dermal fillers like juvederm restylane, belotero, radiesse or sculptra. As a smaller version of the BodyTite and FaceTite – AccuTite allows us to get into and treat areas not previously accessible due to size. When combined with Morpheus8 radio-frequency microneedling (the procedure known as Embrace RF) we are able to treat your skin from above and below and give you a lift that approaches 75% of what can be done with a surgical face lift. This will not only tighten your face but will induce a formation of new collagen and help re-volumize your face. In addition to skin tightening, AccuTite can also break down unwanted fat from the area being treated. As a result, we can shape, contour and tighten your face like never before and decrease the amount of dermal fillers needed to restore your youthful radiance and give you more years of youth.
As leaders in the non-invasive and non-surgical anti-aging treatments we at derma skin institute have developed protocols to target many of your concerns with AccuTite:
- Non-surgical brow lift
- Non surgical blepharoplasty
- Festoon removal
- Puffy eyes
- Forehead lines (especially when botox or dysport are not cutting it)
- Face rejuvenation and tightening
- Double chin
- Nasolabial folds
- Eye wrinkles (“crows feet”)
- Jawline contouring
- Marionette lines
- Laxity and lines of the neck
- Loose abdomen skin
- Loose skin in other areas – arms, knees, hands
AccuTite™ is a radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) and skin tightening treatment. Because this uses heating upto 70 degress Celsius, will apply topical (cream) and injectable numbing to the target area to ensure your comfort. Once you are properly numbed, we will use a needle similar in size to those used during blood collection to make a hole in your skin. This hole will be used as a port for the AccuTite probe to be inserted into the skin. The accutite probe is similar to a long blunt needle. The Dr will slide the probe back and forth throughout the treatment area and you will hear beeping sounds, sometimes in rapid succession, as the treatment is performed. Depending on the area being treated the session can be completed in 15-45 minutes.
AccuTite™ can tighten the skin and remove small pockets of fat, but patients must realize that it is not a weight loss surgery. In addition while this is the most comprehensive non-surgical treatment that can approach the results of a face lift, optimal results may need a combination with resurfacing with laser or volumization with dermal fillers. It is important to understand the goals and limitations of any procedures and to go over this with your doctor before the procedure.
To prepare for your AccuTite™ treatment, it may be advised that you:
- Be near your ideal weight
- Do not smoke for a few weeks
- Avoid certain medications for a few weeks (blood thinners, retinol among others)
- Do not drink alcohol for at least a week
- Discuss any and all concerns with your surgeon
- Be prepared to wear a compression bandage for at least 48 hrs if treating the fat under your chin / neck. Although not necessary, we find that doing so will optimize your results for this particular area
During your consultation, our team will give you detailed instructions on how to prepare for your procedure. Sticking to those guidelines will help to ensure your safety and the success of your treatment.
The results from your AccuTite™ treatment should be visible immediately, and the results will continue to improve over the course of healing for upto 6 months. After your treatment, the skin cells will continue to tighten and fatty tissue will continue to be eliminated and be flushed out of your body.
As AccuTite™ is a minimally invasive procedure – it does not require a large incision or extensive downtime. You may be given compression garments to promote the development of your contours, particularly if the lower face, neck and jowels were done. There will be some mild bruising and swelling that should go away within 7-10 days. Pain is generally minimal and can usually be handled with mild pain medication. Most patients can get back to all of their regular activities after two days.
Cost is dependent on the area being done.
Full face, jaw line and neck = 3500
Upper Eyebrow lift / non-surgical blepharoplasty = 1900
Upper and lower eyebrow and under eye bags = 2400
Yes. AccuTite is a critical but not sole component of our patented 5 Dimension Skin Lift (available only at Derma Skin institute). We strongly believe that combination treatments – whether at the same time, or more gradually at separate visits will give you the full benefit of looking the most refreshed and most natural
Most commonly, AccuTite™ is combined with Co2 laser resurfacing, Dermal fillers ( Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane or Belotero) radiofrequency microneedling (Morpheus8).
If you are interested in a combination of procedures, be sure to discuss this with your dermatologist during your consultation. Your dermatologist will advise you on whether you can undergo the desired treatments simultaneously or if it would be best to undergo them separately.
