What Is AccuTite?
As you get older, your body's natural collagen and elastin supply begin to drop, leading to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin on the face and body. To fight visible signs of aging, Elysium SurgiSpa is pleased to offer AccuTite, a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure. AccuTite utilizes radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) technology to heat up the skin to remove fat and encourage collagen production, helping patients achieve a firmer, younger skin appearance. AccuTite is the smallest known minimally invasive RF contraction device available, making it ideal for precisely treating signs of aging in harder-to-reach areas. To enhance your results, AccuTite can be paired with other nonsurgical anti-aging treatments, like FaceTite, fillers, and more.

"I have been going to Elysium since the day they opened for all of my skin care needs, and I have to say, they truly are the best in the city. I have struggled with feeling very insecure about my lips being misshapen due to an injury from when I was younger. For a long time I thought the only way I'd be able to correct the scarring was by having plastic surgery. Thankfully, I was introduced to Dr. Mick and found out that wasn't necessary. With the lip filler treatment, Dr. Mick was able to even out the border of my lips and enhance the volume in the areas where there was no scar tissue, giving my lips the full body and symmetry I was looking for. Not only is he a master of his craft, but he's a true professional who takes great pride in caring for his patients and providing outstanding customer service. In the years that I have been going to Elysium, I have also tried many of their other services, including botox, laser hair removal, and Morpheus and I have always been very pleased with the results, not to mention the staff. If you're looking for a med spa that has skilled professionals who truly care about their clients, Elysium is the place for you."- T.I. / Google / Jan 11, 2024

How Does Accutite Work?
AccuTite uses a precise technique that is ideal to treat anti-aging concerns in more delicate areas, such as the brows, marionette lines, inner thighs, abdomen, jowls, and neck. This is an outpatient treatment performed at our Chicago, IL office. Once you are comfortable, we will administer local anesthesia before a tiny cannula is placed under your skin. The device delivers RF energy to melt fat cells while also stimulating collagen production to increase the skin's firmness. The treatment should last about 45 minutes per treated area. Once your procedure is finished, you may experience swelling, but this should fade within three days or so. AccuTite is minimally invasive so you can return to your normal activities after your treatment. You should begin to see gradual improvements within about 3 – 8 weeks as collagen is built with outcomes typically lasting for several years.
Does AccuTite hurt?
The treatment area is numbed with a local anesthetic before we begin to prevent any pain or discomfort. During the procedure, some patients may feel a slight heat or pressure, but it typically isn’t uncomfortable.
How long does an AccuTite treatment take?
Depending on the size of the area treated and its location, an AccuTite treatment at Elysium SurgiSpa can take about 30 minutes to one hour.
When will I see results?
In general, most patients begin to see noticeable results within about six weeks that continue to improve for up to one year until optimal results are usually achieved.
How long do AccuTite results last?
AccuTite results are unique for each patient and will depend on age, skin condition, areas treated, and more. Most patients can expect their results to last up to five years before another AccuTite treatment may be recommended. A healthy diet, regular exercise, and skin care regimens can enhance and prolong your results; however, it must be remembered that the aging process doesn’t stop.
