This procedure is perfect for those who see the early signs of aging with fatty deposits beneath the chin. AccuLift provides lasting, significant improvement without the discomfort or downtime of surgery.

What is Acculift?

AccuLift is a groundbreaking facial rejuvenation treatment, ideal for those who are living with the early signs of facial aging. This procedure is minimally invasive, involving two needle-sized puncture spots made under the chin area. A customized fiber optic laser melts excess fat while tightening the skin, with minor bruising or swelling to deal with after the procedure.

What does Acculift treat?

AccuLift treats the following signs of facial aging:

  • Fatty deposits beneath the chin
  • Minor skin laxity
  • Fat deposits on the jowls area

Am I a candidate for an AccuLift treatment?

If you feel that minor skin sagging and excess fat around your jawline and under your chin is making you look older or less attractive, you may be a candidate for this groundbreaking facial rejuvenation treatment. Candidates are:

  • In good general health
  • Not yet ready for a mini or full facelift or neck lift
  • Having minor skin laxity and fatty deposits

How is AccuLift performed?

AccuLift treatments require only about 30 minutes to complete. The area to be treated is numbed with local anesthesia. Two tiny needle punctures are created, through which the laser fiber is then inserted. The AccuLift device emits laser energy into the fatty tissue in the area to be remodeled, breaking up the fat cells, altering them from a solid to a liquid form, and then removing the liquified cells with gentle syringe liposuction. 

  • Anesthesia: Only local anesthesia is needed for an AccuLift treatment.
  • Incisions: Two tiny incisions are placed in the treatment area, leaving no visible scars.
  • Added procedures: AccuLift may be performed in conjunction with laser skin resurfacing, a chemical peel, or other non-surgical treatments, or with an eyelift, brow lift, BOTOX, or dermal fillers.

What should I expect after AccuLIft?

The recovery from an AccuLift procedure requires little time, generally between 24 to 48 hours. You may experience minor discomfort, or slight swelling or bruising, which fade quickly. You should feel back to normal and ready to return to work or play within two to five days.

FAQ

Is an AccuLift really a “non-surgical facelift?”

While an AccuLift treatment is often referred to as a “30-minute facelift,” it cannot achieve the comprehensive rejuvenation of a surgical facelift. However, it is very effective for patients with fatty deposits beneath the chin and who have a reasonable level of skin elasticity.

Can an AccuLift treatment extend the results of my facelift?

Many people undergo AccuLift treatments to help make the results of a facelift last longer, by removing any excess fatty deposits that have developed and tightening the skin beneath the neck.

Can an AccuLift treatment be a substitute for a facelift?

If you have a great deal of sagging skin and tissue, or larger quantities of fat, you will require surgical intervention. However, if you are seeing the early signs of age appearing on the lower face and around your jowls, you can continue to look younger for longer than nature intended by undergoing an AccuLift procedure.
