BodyTite® is an exciting procedure that not only removes stubborn fat but simultaneously tightens loose skin and firms the body.
This breakthrough body re-shaping procedure is the first fat removal device to use an advanced technology called RFAL – Radio Frequency Assisted LipoTightening – to liquefy fat cells and tighten the skin safely, gently and more efficiently than other fat removal techniques.
The BodyTite® procedure gently destroys fat cells and removes excess fat through a tiny incision. By pre-destroying the fat cells, the procedure is far less traumatic and the risk of post-procedure pain, discomfort and swelling is greatly reduced. The heat generated by a high-frequency current during the process boosts collagen production that leads to skin tightening. The unique heating process is both gentle and precise; a device that simply switches off if it fluctuates above or below the optimal skin-tightening temperature monitors the skin’s temperature. The heat also coagulates and seals the blood vessels, thereby reducing the risk of bleeding, haematoma and fat embolism.
