ASK DR. LOVE: What makes BODYtite and FACEtite more effective?

BodyTite and FaceTite by InMode are the first and only FDA-approved devices to sculpt the body and face by removing unwanted fat while shrinking and tightening skin simultaneously.  With the use of radio frequency assisted liposuction (RFAL), these minimally-invasive devices create smoother, tighter skin with quick recovery.

As the expert in these procedures in Oklahoma, we have asked Tim R. Love, M.D. to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about BodyTite and FaceTite.

Q: What do BodyTite and FaceTite do?

While liposuction can reduce the amount of fat on your body, it doesn’t always provide the lift that you need to ensure a tighter and slimmer result. Fortunately, BodyTite and FaceTite’s RFAL technology combines the benefit of fat melting and radio frequency assisted liposuction to tighten the skin for long-term effects.

“InMode’s BodyTite and FaceTite RFAL tighten the skin and soft tissue on overlying areas that are traditionally treated with liposuction alone,” Dr. Love said. “I can selectively remove fat and contour various areas of the body and face to create as good a result as an invasive surgery, but with no scars or significant downtime. Thus, BodyTite and FaceTite by InMode provide the ‘lift,’ in addition to the traditional benefits of liposuction.”

Q: In what areas can InMode’s RFAL be used?

“All body areas can benefit,” Dr. Love said. “These areas include: Face, neck, breast, abdomen, bra line, back, arms, flanks, hips, thighs, inner thighs, knees, and calves.”

Q: So this means I can avoid long incisions and painful recovery periods by choosing InMode’s RFAL BodyTite/FaceTite technology?

In a word – absolutely! This procedure is much less invasive than similar procedures (such as Thermi-tite), so pain and recovery times are shorter with ultimate results seen within three to six months.

“It is correct to think of using InMode’s RFAL BodyTite/FaceTite to aid in providing greater results with less invasive procedures,” Dr. Love said. “Bipolar RFAL in the form of InMode’s BodyTite/FaceTite has been shown to ‘shrink’ skin and soft tissue up to 40 percent.”

“The remarkable outcomes allow ‘lift’-like results without the incisions or the downtime of recovery from a traditional face lift, neck lift, breast lift, abdominoplasty, arm lift, or thigh/knee lift procedures.”

Q: Does BodyTite/FaceTite require hospitalization or general anesthesia?

“No, BodyTite and FaceTite can be safely and comfortably performed under local anesthesia and gentle oral sedation,” Dr. Love said.

Q: In what ways are BodyTite and FaceTite superior to similar procedures?

“InMode’s patented BodyTite and FaceTite are the only FDA-approved bipolar RFAL systems in the world,” Dr. Love said.

“The bipolar nature is the unique piece providing an extremely powerful tool with very accurate temperature control to ensure safe, effective treatments,” Dr. Love said. “Competing technology, such as Thermi-tite, is monopolar in nature. It is slow, far less effective and offers less safety in terms of temperature control.”
