What is BodyTite?
BodyTite is an FDA-approved minimally invasive procedure that can redefine the contours of your body without the need for traditional liposuction or plastic surgery. BodyTite technology targets stubborn pockets of fat and loose skin to give you a more youthful look and smooth body curves. Dr. Jennifer Reichel is our only provider offering BodyTite in our state of the art surgical suite.
How Does BodyTite Work?
BodyTite uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to heat the deep tissues of the skin. RFAL is administered with a wand that is inserted under the skin through a minimal incision. This generated heat beneath the skin stimulates collagen production to tighten the deep layers of the skin and connective tissues for a lifting effect. RFAL also melts fat to eliminate pockets of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. This combination of skin tightening and fat reduction significantly improves the appearance of excess skin for superior body contouring results.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
During the BodyTite treatment, we start by injecting local anesthesia into the treatment site. A small incision is made and then a wand is inserted under the skin to deliver the RFAL technology. This wand will be moved back and forth to tighten skin and break up fat cells.
Each area can be treated in about 30 minutes, and you can treat multiple areas during one treatment for overall body rejuvenation. Downtime is minimal and most patients recover within 1-2 days, but full recovery can take up to 10 days, depending on the areas treated.
How Long Does BodyTite Last?
After a BodyTite treatment, you will immediately see results that will continue to improve for 3-6 months after treatment. BodyTite will slim the upper arms or thighs, tone the abdomen, and smooth the contours of your lower back and thighs. You can expect results to last up to 5 years.
