What’s the main obstacle in your journey to tone up and look exactly the way you want to? For most of us, the main problem is the lingering layer of unwanted fat, loose tissue, and excess skin after weight loss. Fortunately, there is a non-surgical treatment that can help you contour your body into your ideal shape. At Chetco Medical and Aesthetics in Brookings, OR, we believe BodyTite Portland is a good treatment option for most patients.
What Is BodyTite?
BodyTite is a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment that helps dissolve unwanted fat, as well as tighten up skin and tissues that occur as a result of the natural aging process or weight loss. It’s often the case the significant weight loss leaves a small amount of excess tissue and fat that can’t be tightened up with traditional diet and exercising. When that is the case, often the only option people have is to seek cosmetic treatment to resolve these issues.
What Does BodyTite Treat?
This body contouring, skin tightening, and fat reduction treatment can be used on virtually every area of the body that has a mild amount of unwanted fat, or sagging and loose skin tissues. This particular treatment is more effective for tightening skin tissues, but can also reduce enough fat to smooth out and slim down areas of the body. Some common areas of treatment include:
- Bra line
- Arms and underarms
This highly customized treatment can be used on a single area of the body or on multiple areas for a more comprehensive result. Although the fat reduction effect of this treatment is minimal, many patients find that they can shed several centimeters of fat, and sometimes more depending on the condition of the treatment area. This ability paired with the skin-tightening effect of the treatment makes BodyTite one of the better solutions for cellulite.
How Does This Treatment Work?
Unique to other body contouring treatments, this radiofrequency-assisted liposuction treatment both removes fat and tightens skin unlike liposuction alone. The key to this non-surgical treatment is the power of radiofrequency technology. With the use of a unique treatment system that involves the insertion of a thin needle-like probe into the sub-dermal layers, which simultaneously heats deep tissue layers and liquefy unwanted fat beneath the skin surface, which is then removed by liposuction. During your treatment, the unique dual-probe will be used on various targeted areas of your body to melt fat and stimulate the production of collagen.
What Should You Expect From Your Treatment?
Your treatment will be done on an outpatient basis at our clinic and will involve only the use of a local anesthetic and a mild sedative to ensure your comfort during the treatment. The first step of your treatment will be an injection of a special solution to harden the fat in the intended treatment area. Then, the probe will be inserted into the sub-dermal layers of your skin and the thermal energy produced by the radiofrequency technology will work to heat your tissues.
Your treatment appointment will usually take about one hour to complete, although it may require more time if you have multiple areas to treat during one appointment. You will only require one treatment appointment to achieve your ideal results.
What Should You Do After Your Treatment?
After your treatment, you will be given several aftercare instructions to follow for the first one or two weeks after your treatment. One instruction you will need to follow is wearing compression garments on your treated areas to encourage your body to heal into your ideal shape more quickly. You will also need to be cautious about strenuous exercise and excessive heat during your initial recovery period.
When Will You See Results?
You will first see your results within the first three or four weeks after your treatment, which is when the majority of swelling should diminish and you will be able to tell how much slimmer your overall shape is. For the skin tightening results of this treatment, you will likely require several weeks before you see any significant results, as it takes time for collagen to produce. Most patients will be able to enjoy the final results of their treatment after six months.
How Long Do Results Last?
The results of this treatment can last for several years, provided the patient makes healthy lifestyle choices. It’s imperative that you make diet and exercise decisions that can help you maintain your body weight and ideal body shape. But overall, the results of this treatment can last for five years or more.
What Are the Benefits of This Treatment?
There are several appealing benefits of this body contouring treatment. For example, the downtime of the treatment is minimal and most patients can return to their normal daily activities within one week of the treatment. This treatment is also incredibly low risk, with very little chance of scarring or unwanted results.
Additionally, the contouring part of this treatment produces an even, natural-looking result. Somebody contouring and fat reduction treatments produce uneven or inconsistent results when used on multiple areas of the body.
Who Is This Treatment Right For?
This treatment is an ideal fit for patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity and loose tissue on the body, as well as those who have moderate amounts of unwanted fat. This treatment is safe for those of any age and gender, with the exception of those who are currently pregnant or planning to be.
