Minimally Invasive Body Contouring with BodyTite in Charlotte, NC
What Is BodyTite?
BodyTite is a minimally invasive body remodeling treatment. It uses directional radio-frequency energy to coagulate and remove fat while tightening skin and soft tissues. It produces dramatic body shaping results and can be used in many areas of the body.
At H/K/B, we use BodyTite to firm and tighten areas including:
- Upper arms
- Under the chin
Results are smooth and natural looking, but very dramatic. Clinical studies report tissue contraction of up to 36% after a BodyTite treatment. Our patients report lost inches and a more toned, defined appearance in their treatment areas. Results vary, but for many of our patients, BodyTite is the body shaping solution they’ve been seeking.
How does the BodyTite treatment achieve such exceptional results? It uses an internal and external system to target more tissue area. There is a small internal probe that delivers RF energy into the skin and an external probe for additional skin tightening. There is continuous temperature monitoring, even deep within the skin, to ensure patient safety.
BodyTite vs. Liposuction
One of the biggest disadvantages to surgical fat removal treatments like liposuction is the loose skin that can remain after treatment. Patients with poor skin laxity or large quantities of excess fat, may not experience sufficient skin retraction after treatment. This excess skin looks saggy and loose and can leave patients feeling disappointment about their results.
BodyTite is a solution to this common problem. It combines fat removal with skin tightening. Firm skin complements fat reduction treatment, and patients achieve aesthetic results. BodyTite has the added advantage of being less invasive than liposuction or surgical skin tightening treatments.
BodyTite isn’t always the right treatment option. It works well on patients with mild to moderate skin laxity. Patients with significant laxity may achieve a better result with a surgical procedure like a tummy tuck, arm lift, or thigh lift.
BodyTite in Charlotte, NC- What to Expect from Your Treatment
BodyTite is often performed under light sedation, to increase comfort during the procedure. Small incisions are made in inconspicuous locations. We insert a small, specially designed cannula through the incision. Outside of the skin, there will be a small external probe. RF energy is applied and delivered precisely to the treatment areas. Treatment times vary substantially depending on the size and difficulty of the treatment area. A typical treatment takes from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
After BodyTite, you’ll spend a short time in recovery and then head home. Someone will need to drive you due to the sedation used. Most patients are back to their regular daily activities, including work, within a week. Strenuous activities should be avoided for 3-4 weeks. BodyTite typically offers a shorter, easier recovery than liposuction and other surgical procedures.
Scarring is minimal, and most patients experience no visible scarring after treatment. Our carefully placed incisions ensure that your results will look their best.
We’ll talk more specifically about what you can expect from your treatment and recovery during your consultation.
