Part of the body's standard aging process includes the slowing of collagen and elastin production in your epidermis. The result is much more visible wrinkles, lines, and creases, as well as loose skin around the chin, neck, and jowls. To fight these indicators of aging, Nordstar Medical, Skincare & Laser Center offers FaceTite and AccuTite with lipolysis. This innovative nonsurgical procedure, advocated by Dr. Laura Dipuma, uses radiofrequency-guided lipolysis to heat up and dislodge fat cells, causing your skin to tighten and allowing collagen to be produced at a swifter rate. It is possible to receive a smoother, more youthful facial appearance that presents with fewer wrinkles without the invasiveness and downtime from lifting surgeries. We encourage you to schedule an appointment at our Jackson and Dyersburg, TN offices to find out more about FaceTite, AccuTite, and their advantages.
"I absolutely LOVE Nordstar and not once have I had a bad experience. I have been going to Dr. Laura for over ten years and still continue to see her even though I moved to Nashville. I’ve tried other places closer to me, but no one compares (in my opinion!). With her extensive medical background and training, she is the only one I trust to inject Botox or filler. She has a conservative approach, which I greatly appreciate! I can tell she loves what she does and is enthusiastic about continuing to learn about new products/procedures. Kimberly is also equally enthusiastic and loves to teach clients about aesthetics. The entire staff is always super helpful and friendly!"- T.S. / Google / Feb 10, 2022

"I have received multiple services at Nordstar from both Dr Dipuma and Kimberly including facial peels, a facial, and laser hair removal. I’ve always been impressed by the staff there, the high quality products and services, and comfortable environment. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my skin! They always look out for me and are always 100% honest with me, which means a lot. I love the makeup and skin care products that they offer through Obagi and Jane Iredale. They’re top of the line! I always struggled with acne and since switching to these products, I’ve never issues. My skin is so much clearer! I highly recommend Nordstar Medical to all of my family and friends. If you’re looking for a trustworthy, professional, and highly skilled facility look no further than Nordstar."- E.N. / Google / May 13, 2021
Am I A candidate for FaceTite or AccuTite?
FaceTite and AccuTite are generally used to treat smaller, more delicate areas, such as the lines that form around your mouth and below the eyes, as well as the loose skin around the chin and neck region. You are a great candidate for this treatment if you're experiencing classic signs of aging and wish for a boost in collagen production to achieve tighter skin. In order to undergo this treatment, you should not be pregnant or have had facial injections performed over the previous 6 – 8 months. An appointment with Dr. Dipuma might better help you learn whether or not you are a candidate for this procedure.
This aesthetic treatment utilizes a minimally invasive process that involves placing a tiny cannula beneath your skin while using local anesthesia. Once the cannula is placed, the temperature can be monitored and controlled through internal and external thermometers to make certain the heat stays at a comfortable level. The radiofrequency energy that the FaceTite and AccuTite devices release will succeed in disrupting fat cells and will also cause the skin to contract, creating an increase in collagen production. Sessions typically last about 45 minutes per treated area.
FaceTite and AccuTite Recovery
Following a FaceTite or AccuTite treatment, you will be asked to return home to rest and relax for the remaining portion of the day wearing a compression garment. You will be ready to return to your daily routine by the next day. It may take around three days for any discoloration or swelling to fade. Strenuous exercises and activities should still be avoided for approximately 1 – 2 weeks after the treatment. Patients will generally see some visible results after their treatment, but as the procedure involves stimulating the collagen process, you may see more gradual improvements for around 3 – 8 weeks afterward. Your results will likely be long-lasting should you maintain a healthy weight through proper diet and exercise.
Younger, Tighter Skin
Surgical procedures, such as neck lifts and facelifts, do not have to be your only choice for creating tighter, more youthful skin. FaceTite and AccuTite, offered by our Jackson and Dyersburg, TN practices, can firm the skin and address a difficult double chin. It uses a unique radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis technique that stimulates collagen and contracts the skin.
