Let’s start with the basics: What is blepharoplasty? It’s a big, scary word, but all it means is correcting defects, deformities, and disfigurations of the eyelids; and for aesthetically modifying the eye region of the face.
For a long time, the only true option to get positive results in this area was with surgery, but now with the improvement of medical technology, non-surgical blepharoplasty is a common, and highly effective alternative to surgery.
Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty with AccuTite
AccuTite by InMode is a new an innovative machine that uses radiofrequency (RF) technology in a tiny handpiece to deliver energy under the skin for tightening and smoothing.
AccuTite can be used on many areas of the body, but most popular is to treat the eyelids and eye region for common complaints like sagging or bags under the eyes.
The device works by targeting specific areas to induce lipolysis (fat destruction) and tissue tightening (simultaneously).

The AccuTite Treatment: What Can You Expect Before the Treatment?
The benefits speak for themselves in the before & after photos, but what does an AccuTite treatment entail?
An AccuTite treatment is typically followed by a cosmetic consultation with one of our providers such as Dr. Mitchell J. Mandel, PA Hayley Permut, or NP Natalia Fortunato.
Together, you and your provider will take a look at the area you want to treat, review your goals, and determine the best course of treatments.
AccuTite can be combined with Mopheus8 RF Microneedling for even greater benefits if that is something you and your provider decide.
The Treatment: What Can You Expect?
AccuTite is non-surgical, which means it takes place in our outpatient office setting, under a local anesthetic. The process includes:
- 20-30 minutes of topical numbing cream
- A quick, local anesthetic injection
- Treatment time of 20-40 minutes, depending on the areas being treated
