Changes in the skin are among the most visible signs of aging. Evidence that we are getting older can be seen in the fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin on the neck, arms and breast areas among others. There was a time not too long ago where the only real solution to this problem was surgery that removed some parts of the loose skin. In 2019, we now have some state of the art skin remodeling solutions that work wonders by removing fat, tightening skin and improving overall appearance without surgery.
In our practice we are now using radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL), a relatively new concept in energy-assisted body contouring techniques. People who want to contour, lift, and tone their abdominal area, breasts, face, neck, arms, thighs and/or knee areas can now do so with a small incision point, no scarring or stitches. These devices uses precise radiofrequency energy to firm the tissues and tighten the skin. This also has the effect of stimulating the body’s own collagen production, helping with overall elasticity and smoothness. Traditional liposuction can also be performed in conjunction with these procedures if more body contouring is needed.
The RFAL tools we use in our practice are BodyTite and FaceTite by InMode. FaceTite is a minimally-invasive contouring solution for the face as well as smaller areas of the body. This procedure is safe and effective treatment that provides patients with significant aesthetic changes. If you’ve considered a facelift this is the next best thing toa facelift. Built-in safeguards, including real-time measurements of your skin and fat temperature help ensure patient safety and the RFAL technology creates three-dimensional remodeling of the tissue. FaceTite provides unprecedented skin contraction, up to 36% as shown in peer-reviewed clinical studies. The procedure also addresses loose skin typically remaining in the treatment area that other treatments cannot target. The result is nicely contoured skin.
BodyTite is the latest advancement in body contouring techniques. This is a procedure that is performed to treat loose skin or sagging body parts such as the breast and underneath the arms. The device uses precise radiofrequency energy to firm the tissues and tighten the skin. It also stimulates the body’s own collagen production. Traditional liposuction can leave skin loose and sagging in some cases. For this reason, BodyTite is often performed in conjunction with liposuction to provide an optimal result for the patient. Like FaceTite, this procedure is minimally invasive, with essentially no scarring and no stitches required.
For both of these new treatments, results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable after 6 months, and continuing up to 12 months. Depending on the treatment area, downtime can be as little as just a day!
