Non-Surgical Skin Tightening in Farmington: AccuTite and Facetite
For many of our patients, non-surgical skin tightening treatments work by employing targeted energy to heat the deep layers of skin tissue, stimulating elastin and collagen production to improve skin tone and texture. These procedures help smooth facial skin by enhancing its underlying fibrous tissue.
Historically, a surgical facelift was the only option for removing excess fat and tightening facial skin to give youthfulness back to an aging face. At Connecticut Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer two proven technologies to help you minimize wrinkles, soften fine lines, and eliminate sagging facial skin without the use of a scalpel or sutures. You will look younger, have more self-confidence, and improve your facial beauty with these non-surgical skin tightening treatments.
Do you have questions about how you can eliminate fine lines and wrinkles without surgery? Learn how our face tightening procedures can help you look your best through our Accutite and FaceTite technologies, getting you to your dream appearance in no time.
Meet Your Skin Tightening Team
Although RAFL skin tightening procedures are minimally invasive, it still takes the skilled hand of a medical profession. Our team employs the services of board-certified plastic surgeons who have extensive training in plastic and reconstructive surgery, as well as non-surgical treatments. They are committed to ensuring your safety as they help you achieve your best look.
FaceTite is a minimally invasive, skin-tightening treatment that recontours underlying tissues while smoothing surface skin and stimulating elastin and collagen production. It provides results similar to those of a mini facelift, without the risk of surgery.
Ideal patients are non-smokers and have good overall health. They may have sagging or loose skin with mild to moderate excess fat. FaceTite is suitable for all skin types and textures. It treats target areas including:
- The jawline
- The neck
- The checks
FaceTite has also proven successful in the treatment of wrinkles in small areas like the knees and elbows.
We perform FaceTite with local anesthesia or light sedation, depending on your needs and desires. Once you are comfortable, we will make tiny incisions where we insert the internal portion of the FaceTite attachment. The device will produce radiofrequency energy that projects from an internal cannula to an external electrode at the skin surface. The heat that is generated by the device will coagulate blood vessels, melt fat, and stimulate collagen production. Results include tighter skin and rejuvenation of youthful appearance.
We regulate the FaceTite radiofrequency power automatically through measurement tools and thermal controls to ensure our patients receive the safest procedure with the best results. This also allows us to precisely target treatment to locations and problems that are specific to each of our patients, giving them individualized, stunning results.
We perform FaceTite in our comfortable, state-of-the-art office, and you will go home immediatelyafter your treatment. You may experience some swelling or slight bruising, with a numb feeling at first, but these symptoms will soon fade. Discomfort is minimal, and recovery is quick compared to surgery.
We ask you to refrain from physical activity for about two weeks, but you can return to work after seven to 10 days.

AccuTite is the newest member of our RFAL (Radiofrequency-assisted liposuction) family. It is a non-surgical, in-office treatment that resolves the effects of aging with thermal energy.

What is AccuTite Like?
We perform AccuTite in the comfort of our office in Farmington, CT. We will prepare the treatment site by cleaning and administering local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Our patients rave about these benefits that make the experience relaxed and stress-free:
- Average of 15 minutes of treatment depending on the area
- Accurate, precision-guided heat therapy
- No general anesthesia or sedation required
- No surgery
- No scarring
- No downtime
As with all our skin tightening equipment, the AccuTite applicator employs built-in safeguards, like real-time measurements of fat and skin temperatures, impedance monitoring, audible feedback, and power cut-off with to ensure your comfort and safety.
After your AccuTite treatment, expect some swelling, bruising, and redness for about one week. After this week you can return to normal daily activities. Because this procedure is minimally invasive, there are fewer side effects than surgery.
You may notice some improvement immediately after treatment, but you will experience your best results over the next few months as your skin heals and increases its production of collagen and elastin.
