HOW IS BODYTITE PERFORMED
BodyTite is performed in our fully accredited office procedure room using local anesthesia. The area of loose skin or excess fat is numbed with local anesthesia. A micro-incision is made in the skin and the BodyTite probe is inserted in the area. Our micro-incision is so tiny that stitches are not required. The BodyTite electrode delivers RF energy to heat the tissue to a safe temperature while simultaneously measuring the real-time temperature of the skin. BodyTite has safeguards that provide active monitoring of the skin’s external and internal temperatures, ensuring the treatment is safe, precise and effective. Uniform heat distribution throughout the treated areas provides results that are even and smooth. The entire procedure lasts about one hour, and patients can return home immediately after.

BodyTite is a single treatment solution without surgery. Most our patients require only one treatment session. The treatment itself typically takes less than one hour, and poses minimal post-treatment redness and swelling—many patients resume their normal activities right away! In certain cases, additional Bodytite treatments may be needed to achieve a patient’s desired improvement.
