or both men and women, facial and body contouring has long been turned to as a way to reduce inches and create an aesthetic that matches up with personal preferences. In the past, options for contouring traditionally revolved around excisional procedures which tend to be more invasive. Advances in cosmetic technology mean that prospective patients considering facial and body contouring today have a variety of options to choose from. Easier and safer than ever, patients can pick and choose contouring methods depending on their health history, physical goals, and safety preferences. One of the most innovative solutions on the cosmetic market that’s gained great popularity amongst patients is the BodyTite skin tightening method. Proven to provide incredible and safe results, BodyTite is a wonderful alternative for patients who may be looking to avoid traditional liposuction.
Understanding BodyTite Liposuction and Skin Tightening
Volumetric heating and fat coagulation are the core features of BodyTite which contours the face and body using radiofrequency assisted liposuction. Skin is tightened as fat is removed, making this procedure not only non-invasive but highly time efficient as well. Radiofrequency waves are used to precisely target problematic areas of fat buildup in the body. The waves essentially melt fat away, making it simple to suction it from the body using suction at a small incision point. As fat cells are suctioned away, skin is tightened by heat leaving a contoured and sleek look in its wake.
Unlike traditional Liposuction, which can remove fat, but not necessarily improve sagging skin, BodyTite is a method that provides dual results in the form of contouring and tightening. Traditional liposuction is also associated with larger incision points that have the potential for scarring while the minimally invasive nature of BodyTite leaves patients with a quick recovery and minimal noticeable scarring if any. As an added benefit, patients who undergo BodyTite generally require nothing more than local anesthesia to create a comfortable experience and the procedure can often be performed in the comfort of an attending physician’s office in as little as 30 minutes.
The Many Benefits of BodyTite Skin Tightening
While BodyTite and traditional liposuction are both proven to provide results related to fat tissue removal, the skin tightening component of BodyTite makes it highly desirable among patients looking to simultaneously contour specific areas. The radiofrequency waves used during BodyTite treatments to melt away fat cells also work to stimulate collagen production in the skin. Ultimately, this leads to skin that is more elastic, smooth and voluminous. The minimally invasive nature of BodyTite also makes it a great solution for a client base of younger men and women who aren’t yet ready to commit to a tummy tuck or facelift.
How BodyTite Reduces Risk
Many patients are drawn to BodyTite as a solution to fat removal and contouring due to its safe nature. Because BodyTite is relatively non-invasive, patients don’t have to worry about the lengthy recovery periods often associated with traditional liposuction procedures. Healing up in a fraction of the time means patients can enjoy successful results with the peace of mind that comes from knowing they can safely return quickly to everyday routine and responsibilities. The technology associated with BodyTite means that the procedure is both quick and comfortable for patients as well. While the potential for scarring is significantly reduced, the BodyTite mechanism digitally monitors temperature throughout the procedure to ensure patients do not experience pain of any type.
The cost associated with BodyTite treatments will vary between patients depending on the area being treated and how many sessions are required to achieve successful results. The final cost of service will always be discussed prior to undergoing treatment for patients who choose the St. Louis Laser Liposuction Center for BodyTite.
