BodyTite is an FDA-approved procedure which melts away fat and tightens skin at the same time. Through the use of radiofrequency assisted lipolysis, or RAFL, can be performed in the comfort of our Virginia Beach office using local anesthesia, mild sedation, or Pronox, a mild sedative used in dentistry, depending on the number of areas being treated and the depth of treatment. BodyTite is a revolutionary new procedure designed to heat fat tissue from both the outside and the inside of the cells, for a more effective treatment for body sculpting.
Dr. Kaado provides an in-depth approach to body contouring that addresses your unique anatomy, needs and goals. He works to improve the physique with a range of innovative therapies, aiming for a comprehensive transformation so as to perform arguably the best results in body tightening Virginia Beach has to offer.
BodyTite is performed using a hand-held device that is unlike any other. This device sends radiofrequency energy into your cells using both an internal probe and an external probe. The internal probe is inserted into your body through a tiny incision, allowing the device to come directly into contact with the unwanted fat tissue. BodyTite then heats the tissue, melting fat away without damaging the surrounding areas both internally and externally.
While some areas can be treated while the patient is fully conscious with local anesthesia, some patients may choose to be sedated to ensure greater comfort throughout the process. Depending on the number of areas being treated, treatment can be performed in one to three hours. BodyTite is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require any incisions or sutures, so you may resume your daily activities almost immediately.
BodyTite's unique body contouring device is ideal to use in many areas with excess fat. This includes areas such as:
Patients may experience mild tenderness and swelling in the areas treated, which may initially slow every day activities. This tenderness should become less intense during the first few hours following the procedure and is easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Any discomfort you experience should completely subside within a few days of the BodyTite procedure.
Additionally, patients may experience mild bruising, swelling, and the skin around the areas treated may be slightly tender to the touch. As the melted fat cells are swept away by your body's natural processes, the skin tone and treated area will smooth and become more even.
The recovery of each patient will be determined by that patient's overall health prior to receiving BodyTite and the number of areas on which the procedure is performed. Small areas will require just a few days for recovery, while larger areas may require up to 10 days for patients to fully recover.
While you may notice some immediate results, you will continue to notice results for 6 to 12 months following the BodyTite procedure. During this time, your body increases the natural production of collagen producing visibly smoother skin.
You deserve to have the body you've always dreamed of having. The first step to realizing that dream is by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Kaado to discuss your vision for body contouring and learn if BodyTite treatments will be the optimal way to sculpt your body for a more attractive, trim, and appealing figure.
