What is BodyTite?
At American Surgical Arts we treat patients from New Jersey, Philadelphia and Delaware who are interested in reducing body fat and reversing skin laxity. BodyTite is one of the minimally invasive procedures, with minimal down time, we offer that delivers unparalleled results for skin tightening. BodyTite uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate the body to form collagen, resulting in skin tightening with just one treatment. BodyTite can also be combined with Liposuction for fat reduction. (RFAL).
What Can I Expect During BodyTite Procedure?
During your treatment, our physician will numb the area with local anesthetic sometime under sedation and then employ the BodyTite applicator. This applicator consists of a very thin probe inserted underneath the skin and an external RF transmitter that is run along the skin of the area being treated. Radiofrequency (RF) is emitted between the internal probe and the external transmitter, monitoring the temperature of both, allowing precise heating of the tissues beneath the skin. The RF energy induces immediate skin contraction, and stimulates the body to form collagen for several month after the procedure.
How Long Does it Take to Recover After BodyTite?
BodyTite is an out-patient procedure here at American Surgical Arts. After BodyTite you can expect some relatively minor discomfort, swelling and bruising in the area treated. A compression garment will be provided and should be worn for a variable period of time, depending on the area treated. You can return to your daily activities within 1 to 3 days.
What are the Benefits of BodyTite?
Results from BodyTite should last as long as you maintain your weight and a healthy lifestyle. BodyTite benefits can been seen shortly after the procedure and continue to improve over 3 to 6 months, as new collagen is produced.
