For patients who do not want to have a dramatic surgery… this is the perfect solution.
What is AccuTITE?
AccuTITE is a safe and effective minimally invasive procedure, where a wand is inserted under the skin to melt fat inside while tightening the skin on top. This is a new procedure that is the next best thing to a surgical facelift.
How does AccuTITE work?
AccuTITE provides dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face, neck, and areas of the body, which were previously only attainable through surgical procedures, such as a facelift. The wand that is inserted under the skin reaches 70⁰C while the arm above the skin reaches 42⁰C to efficiently destroy fat and tighten skin.

Process & Treatment
One session will be effective to achieve desired results.
There is some immediate results noticed, however there is also significant swelling which may take up to 10 days to disappear. The best anticipated results are seen after 6-12 weeks.
At Captivating Aesthetics, the first step is to book a consultation with our team experts. During this consultation, a brief medical and relevant aesthetic history will be taken. You will have the chance to discuss your treatment concerns, your treatment goals, your fears and concerns in regard to the actual treatment itself. Your full treatment plan, along with expected maintenance will then be discussed.
A detailed series of photographs will be taken at every visit to compare your results to your baseline pictures, as well as monitoring progression of results.
Once you have a treatment plan in place, photos are taken, and you come in for your appointment where tumescent freezing will be injected under the skin, as well as oral medication to calm nerves. At this point, Dr Zwanepoel will begin by creating an entry point for the cannula to go under the skin and perform the procedure.
Photographs may be done immediately after the procedure. You will also receive specific after-care directions. The most important of these is avoiding direct sun exposure, compliance to SPF application and re-application, compression garments, and continuing a supportive skincare regimen. You may experience some minor bruising or swelling in the short term after the appointment which is a normal response and will go away after roughly 10 days.
Mineral makeup can be applied after 24-48 hours while being careful of entry points on the skin.
AccuTITE pricing depends on the area being treated. The best way to find out pricing is to call the office or discuss during a consultation.
