Everything You Need to Know about BODYtite Radio-Frequency Skin-Tightening

By now, you have probably heard us sing the praises of the BODYtite and FACEtite procedures. Although radio-frequency can sound a little like a sci-fi thriller, it’s one of the most exciting technologies on the market to help you get the beautiful, sculpted body you want without surgery.

If you’re curious about BODYtite by InMode but aren’t sure what it’s all about, then keep reading to find out! Be sure to save our infographic below to see all the benefits BODYTite can provide.

What is BODYtite radio-frequency skin-tightening procedure?

BODYtite is a minimally invasive device that creates smoother, tighter skin with a short recovery period. Using radio-frequency assisted liposuction (RFAL), the device sculpts the body by removing unwanted fat and tightening skin simultaneously. The procedure can selectively target various areas of the body, giving you surgical results without the scars.

While liposuction itself can result in a similar reduction in fat, it doesn’t lift or tighten the skin. This typically means a second procedure is necessary to boost and tighten the sagging skin.

How does BODYtite radio-frequency skin tightening work?

BODYtite uses RFAL via the use of two wands–one is placed under the skin of the treatment area while the second wand delivers radio-frequency energy above the surface. The energy heats up the fat tissue while simultaneously tightening the skin. The use of the two wands delivers the radio-frequency to the correct tissue level without damaging the overlying skin.

By selectively melting and removing fat while concurrently lifting the skin, the soft tissue shrinks by up to 40 percent. Thus, BODYTite’s RFAL technology allows you to combine the fat reduction of liposuction and the tightened appearance of a lift with significantly less downtime.

What kind of results can I expect?

You will see results immediately with the best results appearing within five to six months as your body heals. Studies show the skin continues to tighten up to a year after the procedure. Due to the minimally invasive nature of the process, you will not have large scars or significant downtime following the procedure.

You won’t be left with sagging skin where the fat was stored. Instead, you will notice visibly lifted skin, tightened tissue, and a long-lasting reduction in fatty tissue.

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. Tim R. Love, MD 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. Tim R. Love, MD 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. Tim R. Love, MD 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. Tim R. Love, MD 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. Tim R. Love, MD said.

“The bipolar nature is the unique piece providing an extremely powerful tool with very accurate temperature control to ensure safe, effective treatments,” Dr. Tim R. Love, MD 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.”
