Looking to Tighten Skin This Spring?

No one wants to have loose or sagging skin on their body or face; this is especially true as we come into the spring and summer months. Vacations, weekend getaways, trips to the park with friends… You want to look your very best, and part of that comes down to having tight and firm skin that looks youthful and healthy. Unfortunately, life events and age have their own agenda when it comes to your skin.

For years, the only truly effective way to achieve tighter skin and accentuate your body’s contours was through plastic surgery procedures like facelift surgery and neck lift surgery (for the face) and tummy tuck surgery, thigh lift surgery, and body lift surgery (for the body). 

However, cosmetic technology is constantly evolving, and one of the best innovations in cosmetic treatments deals exclusively with tightening the skin in the face and body! 

BodyTite®, FaceTite®, and AccuTite™ offer the next step in minimally invasive fat reduction and skin tightening!

How Do These Treatments Work?

BodyTite®, FaceTite®, and AccuTite™ are minimally invasive treatments that use RFAL (radio frequency assisted lipolysis) to heat the underlying tissue. This process reduces and eliminates the presence of stubborn subcutaneous fat while also promoting the production of new collagen and elastin, which are the proteins responsible for the health and elasticity of the skin. This production leads to smoother, tighter, and more elastic skin.

Most patients require only one treatment for each area of concern, and after your procedure, you can look forward to a more youthful and healthier appearance, which can definitely boost your confidence and sense of self-esteem. 

What Areas of the Body Can These Treatments Improve?

One of the many benefits of these fat-reducing and tightening treatments is their versatility. These treatments are effective for getting rid of stubborn fat and helping you achieve desired contours on various areas of your body, including:


  • Abdomen and midsection
  • Legs (knees and thighs)
  • Arms
  • Sides and flanks
  • Back fat along the bra line


  • Neck
  • Forehead
  • Cheeks
  • Jawline


While offering the same results in many of the same areas of the body and face as BodyTite® and FaceTite®, AccuTite™ has smaller handpieces, which offers more specific treatment to smaller areas of the body and face, such as:

  • Under the eyes
  • Brows
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Legs

While these treatments can offer you dramatic results when performed by themselves, many patients choose to combine their BodyTite®, FaceTite®, or AccuTite™ treatments with liposuction surgery to achieve the more complete and dramatic transformation they desire.

Why Should You Schedule Your Consultation Now?

Spring and summer are quickly approaching, and the last thing you want is to welcome these seasons (and the clothing and activities that come with them) with excess fat and loose skin on your body and/or face. 

BodyTite®, FaceTite®, and AccuTite™ may be the answer you’re looking for, but it’s important to act soon to get yourself ready to show off your results in time. This is because the results achieved from these treatments can take several weeks to months to be fully realized. 

It is also important to note that these treatments may not always be the best choice for you. 

BodyTite®, FaceTite®, and AccuTite™ are only successful on women and men who struggle with mild to moderate skin laxity. 

These treatments do not involve the removal of any sagging skin, which means that cosmetic surgery procedures, such as tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty), arm lift surgery (brachioplasty), and facelift surgery, may better help you achieve your ideal results. At your consultation, your plastic surgeon will evaluate your condition to determine which procedure or treatment is best for you.

Just remember: There’s no sense in putting off looking and feeling your best!
