As we age and become very aware of the natural changes in our appearance.
We begin to notice less definition in our jawline, slight “sagging” in our lower face skin, submental fat and volume under the chin and in the neck, and loose, crepey skin around the mouth, under the chin, in the neck, and in the jowl area.
For dramatic improvements in skin tightening and fat reduction with less downtime than surgical cutting, our lead doctor Dr Maini utilizes a trio of cutting-edge, internal heating devices — InMode FaceTite, InMode BodyTite, and InMode AccuTite — which are specifically designed and targeted for those with small problem areas with minor skin laxity and excess fat.
While non-invasive, energy-based devices like EndyMed and H.I.F.U can prevent sagging and tighten the skin over time through a series of treatments, FaceTite, BodyTite, and AccuTite can provide immediate skin contraction and more significant, long-term improvements in tightening and contouring with only a short time of downtime.
FaceTite, BodyTite, and AccuTite produce a “shrink wrap” effect in the treatment area, which is evidenced by an audible “sizzling” during the procedure. With multiple passes, Dr Maini is able to tighten the skin and contour the treatment area.

How does it work?
InMode FaceTite, BodyTite, and AccuTite are safe, effective, minimally invasive devices that are powered by radiofrequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL) technology, which employs thermal energy beneath the skin to promote skin tightening and removes unwanted fat.
Radiofrequency energy is directed through a cannula and distributed evenly to the sublayers of the skin; this energy gradually produces heat beneath the skin that liquefies the localized excess subcutaneous fat.
The melted fat is suctioned away through sculpting and contouring liposuction, resulting in a smoother contour and skin texture without the lumps, bumps, and irregularities that are common following regular liposuction procedures.
The hand pieces on all the three devices have two distinct components: a subdermal probe that emits RF energy, and a surface probe that provides Dr. Maini with vital feedback in real time throughout the procedure.
Both probes measure and monitor the amount of heat delivered to the tissue to reduce the risk of scarring, indentations, discoloration, or irregularities. The device “beeps” repeatedly throughout the treatment to alert Dr. Maini to the amount of heat building up in the tissue.
Due to the intense heat that is generated, it is essential that this procedure is performed by a board certified doctor and specialist in internal RF heating to ensure a safe procedure with minimal risks, as scarring and pigmentation changes can occur if not done properly.
How long do improvements last?
Whilst the fat reduction results are permanent, skin tightening improvements must be maintained with monthly LPG endermologie treatments which will aid in the tightening and stimulate the collagen production.
How does Dr Maini do it differently here at Zenith Cosmetic Clinics London and Nottingham?
FaceTite, BodyTite and AccuTite have all proven to be highly effective, state of the art devices and treatments. Although, Dr Maini never relies on single treatment procedures to obtain long-term improvements for his patients. In his vast experience, Dr Maini has found that patients who have tailored combination procedures with a range of methodologies, technologies and devices are the best means of achieving optimal improvements without surgical intervention. If this is something you’d like to know more about please feel free to book in a consultation with Dr Maini to find out how we can help you Non-Surgically at either of our London and Nottingham Clinics!
Face & Neck Tightening:
No matter how much we exercise or diet, genetics can leave us with stubborn pockets of fat in areas like the lower face and neck, giving us a less defined contoured looked than would be desired. To deliver prominent improvements, Dr Maini first uses InMode FaceTite or AccuTite to internally heat and contract the skin in these areas; then, the neck is shaped through a Hi-Definition Liposuction procedure to remove stubborn fat and provide improved definition.
In one quick treatment, Dr Maini is to remove fat, tighten the skin and contour the lower face, jawline and jowls with far less downtime than you would expect with a surgical procedure.
For many patients that suffer with a lack of jawline definition or loose submental skin (under the chin) a minimally invasive procedure like InMode FaceTite or AccuTite can be the perfect choice. Here at Zenith Cosmetic Clinics Dr Maini can create skin contractions in the the lower face, and Accutite can tighten the jawline and skin around the mouth. Together, the two complimentary devices can help achieve a sharper, contoured, and defined jawline. Leave feeling like Angelina Jolie, what more could you ask for!
BodyTite for Non-Surgical Breast Lift or Chest Skin Tightening:
Whether through surgery or minimally invasive treatments, the goal of any breast lift procedure is to restore a youthful shape back to the breasts. For patients that are looking to avoid major surgical treatments and downtime Dr Maini can perform a non-surgical breast lift treatment using InMode BodyTite in combination with an external microneeding treatment called Morpheus8 to lift and tighten crepey skin.
If a more significant improvement is desired – or for those who have severe sagging of the breast a surgical Breast Lift can be performed in conjunction with BodyTite with the aid one of our expert plastic surgeons here at Zenith Cosmetic Clinics.
BodyTite for Inner Thigh Skin Tightening:
If you have got excess loose skin in the inner thighs, Dr Maini uses InMode BodyTite internal RF skin tightening. Dr Maini uses BodyTite to “shrink wrap” the skin through internal heating, contour the thighs, and melt any unwanted fat beneath the skin. BodyTite allows for precise tightening and lifting of the areas treated and help to fine-tune these difficult areas.
If there is significant skin laxity and crepiness in the thighs, these minimally invasive procedures can be followed by a surgical thigh lift performed by one of our specialist cosmetic surgeons here at Zenith Cosmetic Clinics.
BodyTite for Buttock Roll Skin Tightening:
Here at Zenith Cosmetic Clinics we find that a primary concern of both of our male and female patients is the buttocks area. With age, the skin in this area begins to sag, and the buttocks loses its volume and plumpness. As part of a non-surgical butt lift procedure, Dr Maini uses InMode BodyTite to tighten the lower buttock, buttock roll and inner and outer thighs.
This treatment is typically combined with Morpheus8, a deep micro-needling RF device, for additional skin tightening. This treatment with Dr Maini can achieve a dramatic improvement in the buttocks shape and size, obtaining a long term lift and tightening of the buttocks. Dr Maini also incorporates Cellfina to remove any true cellulite dimples from the buttocks area to smooth the surface and allow long-term skin tightening.

Facial Skin Tightening with AccuTite (“Baby FaceTite”):
The smallest minimally invasive RF contraction device available on the market, AccuTite (or “Baby FaceTite”) provides the same internal heating, skin tightening, and fat reduction benefits as FaceTite; however, it is designed to tackle more delicate areas, such as the brow, periorbital area (around the eyes), eyelids, eyebrows, nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines (lines around the mouth), jawline, neck, hands, bra roll, and armpit fat / loose skin.
Dr Maini is one of the first doctors in the East Midlands and London to offer AccuTite to his patients at both his clinics in the U.K. He uses AccuTite to target smaller areas and deliver very precise skin tissue remodelling. For patients with minimal loose skin and no excess fat in the neck AccuTite is a safe, 15-20 minute, skin tightening solution that demands only a couple of days of downtime and does not involve the cost or complications of a surgical facelift or neck lift. AccuTite can be performed whilst the patient is awake and can be complimented with microneedling RF Morpheus9, Fractora or EndyMed Intensif to tighten and contour the jawline, neck and jowls.
Is AccuTite, BodyTite or FaceTite painful?
To minimize pain and discomfort, Dr Maini administers a local anesthetic prior to the procedure to numb the treatment area. While some patients choose to be asleep for the duration of the procedure, general anaesthesia is not necessary. While there is no pain during the procedure, local anaesthetic can cause a burning sensation while it takes effect and there is a minimal pain during the healing process.
What is the downtime?
Patients experience a weekend of downtime following the procedure. You can typically return to your normal activities after 1 to 3 days. Over the course of several weeks, swelling in the treatment area will subside and the final result will take shape.
Dr Maini recommends that his patients obtain laser skin resurfacing treatments such as Fraxel, Fractora, Morpheus8 or LPG endermologie in the weeks after their FaceTite, BodyTite, or AccuTite procedure to provide additional skin tightening and improve sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles and crepey skin!
Am I a good candidate?
The best candidate for FaceTite, BodyTite and AccuTite procedures are those who have completed a weight loss transformation and have skin laxity as a result (with or without excess skin removal surgery). FaceTite, BodyTite and AccuTite are ideal for patients who are not yet open to a surgical facelift or neck lift or who want to avoid surgical procedures but want the best results in skin tightening.
FaceTite can treat areas such as the lower face, jawline and neck.
BodyTite can treat areas such as stomach, back flanks, arms, thighs (inner and outer), buttocks, buttock roll, knees, chest and breasts.
AccuTite can treat areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines), periorbital (around the eye), jowls, bra rolls, knees and even the vagina.
Certain individuals with skin laxity (with or without underlying fat concerns) who are hoping to obtain quick, surgical-like results with minimal downtime should schedule a formal evaluation with our Lead Doctor, Dr Maini to determine if they are a good candidate. You can book in a consultation at either one of our clinics, Nottingham and London.
Dr Maini customises each and every one of his procedures to treat his patients as individually as possible. This allows him to focus on each of his patients wants, needs and goals in order to get the best possible outcome with long-term results.
