Regular physical activity and a nutritionally-balanced diet are among the most effective tools for maintaining optimal health and a fit, slim physique. But sometimes, no matter how much you sweat or how healthy you eat, there are still stubborn areas of fat that cling to your figure and stand in the way of you reaching your body goals. Even those who are otherwise in good shape can struggle with problem areas that refuse to budge.
BodyTite is a breakthrough body contouring treatment that offers a solution to diet-resistant areas. By tapping into the power of radiofrequency (RF) energy, BodyTite works to eliminate excess fat while simultaneously tightening the skin for a slimmer, sleeker body contour. This minimally-invasive treatment option can shape, lift and tighten almost any area of the body without the need for surgery or incisions.
The revolutionary technology behind BodyTite is referred to as radiofrequency-assisted liposuction or (RFAL). Similar to traditional liposuction, BodyTite involves the use of a hollow tube known as a cannula to remove fat from localized areas of the body. But unlike traditional liposuction, the BodyTite device utilizes a handpiece with two components: a specially-designed cannula and an external electrode. Radiofrequency energy travels between these two components during treatment, generating heat in the tissues to induce lipolysis (the breakdown of fat) and trigger collagen remodeling to tighten and firm the skin. This combined internal and external treatment approach maximizes the benefits of this treatment for remarkable body sculpting results.
As a minimally-invasive procedure with minimal side effects and downtime, BodyTite can be beneficial to anyone interested in reducing fat and tightening skin in their trouble areas. BodyTite is safe and effective for all skin types and tones. However, as a body contouring treatment, ideal patients should be at or within a reasonable range of their goal weight with localized pockets of fat for best results.
Downtime following your BodyTite treatment is minimal for most patients. Following your procedure, you may feel some soreness or notice symptoms of redness, swelling, bruising or skin sensitivity; however, most of our patients find that these symptoms are manageable and resolve on their own within a matter of days. Wearing a compression garment during your initial healing period can help to reduce residual swelling and allow your body to adjust to its new shape. Your provider at the Anti-Aging Clinic of Northwest Florida will advise you of any aftercare instructions before undergoing your BodyTite procedure.
Following your BodyTite treatment, most patients will start to see their new body contours emerge as residual swelling goes down. In the weeks following your procedure, your body will work to eliminate treated fat cells and reveal a firmer, tauter skin quality. The treated regions will continue to improve in appearance for months as new collagen grows and continues to tighten tissues further. Once your final results are achieved, they can last indefinitely so long as you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
