BodyTite is a great solution for individuals who are looking to reduce fat without saggy and wrinkly skin. It also helps improve skin laxity after weight loss or due to aging. BodyTite treats loose skin in areas of the Abdomen, Upper Back, Arms, Thighs/Knees and Breasts. The device uses precise radiofrequency energy to firm the tissue, tighten the skin, and stimulate collagen production.
BodyTite is conducted through a unique hand piece that deploys radiofrequency energy from both an internal probe and an external electrode. The internal probe is inserted through a tiny incision. When moved across the treatment area, the electrode and internal probe precisely heat adipose tissue as well as superficial tissue beneath the skin. Built-in mechanisms ensure that the appropriate degree of heating occurs without damaging the skin.
In general, patients that are of a healthy weight but have stubborn areas of fat and/or skin that needs tightening will get the best results – the better the skin, the quicker it responds.
Results from BodyTite™ should be permanent. However, as with many weight loss and fat reduction procedures, this will only be the case if you continue to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle following treatment. BodyTite does not prevent future weight gain.
The skin can be seen to tighten immediately during the procedure. It is usual for the skin to become slightly uneven at week 3; the skin then takes 3-9 months to become smooth again but will usually still look much better than before. Follow up continues for up to 12 months as it can take that long for the final result to become visible.
