Sagging skin and the build-up of small, unwanted fat pockets are a natural part of aging. However, you don’t have to live with skin laxity and sagging. Traditionally, the only way to tighten sagging skin has been with a surgical procedure such as a thigh or arm lift. With modern advances in the field of aesthetic medicine, new technology makes it possible for skin tightening to be achieved with non-surgical treatments.
What is BodyTite?
Until BodyTite, there was no way to tighten the skin safely and reliably without surgery. BodyTite is a groundbreaking technology that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin naturally. BodyTite is the only FDA-approved RFAL (radiofrequency assisted lipolysis) system and is safe and effective. BodyTite treatments can be paired with liposuction in areas of the body with stubborn fatty deposits or without liposuction to enjoy its skin-tightening benefits. At Engineered Aesthetics, you can enhance your look with tighter skin and a more sculpted body contour.
The BodyTite device is revolutionary in that it pairs radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and trigger collagen with a cannula (hollow needle) that simultaneously suctions out areas of unwanted fat to resculpt the body. This two-pronged approach is a revolution in modern body sculpting. Traditional liposuction does not tighten the skin when stubborn fat is removed and can leave disappointing results. With BodyTite, the natural process of collagen stimulation provides patients with tighter, smoother skin with RFAL (radiofrequency assisted lipolysis) rather than simply removing fat.
Where on the body can BodyTite be used?
BodyTite is most used to treat stubborn areas of the body, including the following:
- Lower back
- Love handles
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
- Bra line fat
- Breast skin
What are the benefits of BodyTite?
BodyTite provides a range of benefits for patients who would like to rejuvenate their firm, tight contours without surgery.
BodyTite is minimally invasive, so it is not considered a surgical procedure. Because of this, the downtime is minimal. BodyTite provides superior results to traditional liposuction because the skin is effectively tightened with thermal energy, requiring only very small incisions.
More tolerable than traditional liposuction
Patients find BodyTite to be more comfortable than traditional liposuction because it is less invasive. It also has fewer risks or side effects than traditional liposuction.
Improves the quality of the skin
You may feel that traditional liposuction could leave you with loose skin in the areas of fat removal. The beauty of BodyTite is it enhances skin quality and firmness while removing fat from stubborn areas.
BodyTite is performed under local anesthesia
BodyTite does not require general anesthesia, which many find to be a huge advantage over surgical skin tightening procedures.
What should I expect when recovering from BodyTite?
The minimally invasive nature of BodyTite means that most patients can return to work within a matter of days. You may feel sore for several days after the procedure and have some amount of swelling and bruising. This is completely normal and will resolve as your body progresses through the healing process. During this time, new collagen is regenerated, continuing to enhance skin quality for firmer, more supple skin, youthful, and refreshed.
Am I a good candidate for BodyTite?
If you are currently near your optimal weight or have recently lost weight and are bothered by loose skin or persistent fat deposits, you might be an excellent candidate for BodyTite treatments. Ideal candidates should meet the following criteria:
- Are in good health
- Do not smoke
- Are not pregnant or nursing
- Are within 10-20 pounds of a healthy, ideal weight that can be maintained
- Have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with BodyTite
