BodyTite®: The Nonsurgical Way to Tighten Saggy Skin After Weight Loss

BodyTite®: The Nonsurgical Way to Tighten Saggy Skin After Weight Loss

Losing weight sustainably and healthily is a major accomplishment. It may have taken you months or years to lose excess pounds and gain a healthy, fit figure.

Unfortunately, an unwanted consequence of any significant weight loss — particularly as you get older — is sagging, loose skin. When you had excess fat, your skin stretched to accommodate it. 

Now the fat (and its volume) are gone. What’s left is skin that’s been stretched out of shape and can’t snap back on its own. 

In the past, the only remedy for sagging skin after weight loss was surgery to remove it. But now, at Best Impression Med Spa in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, our expert nurses and aestheticians are happy and excited to help you tighten up that loose skin with nonsurgical BodyTite®. 

Would your figure and skin benefit from BodyTite? Take a moment to find out how radiofrequency energy can put the finishing touches on your new figure.

How BodyTite works

BodyTite uses radio frequency (RF) energy to stimulate your skin. The energy increases the amount of fibroblasts, which in turn produce collagen and elastin. You’re probably already familiar with the benefits of collagen. This protein provides a strong matrix for your skin, to help make it thicker and stronger.

Elastin is another protein that’s essential for all skin, but particularly loose skin. As its name suggests, elastin increases the ability of your skin to snap back into place, like an elastic band.

 The BodyTite device creates microwounds in your skin that send it into repair mode. As a new scaffold builds itself from the added fibroblasts, collagen, and elastin, your skin tightens up, becoming firmer and thicker.

A bonus to BodyTite is that it simultaneously heats up and destroys any excess fat cells that were left behind after weight loss. So, with one procedure, you get skin tightening plus fat removal.

How BodyTite feels

Your BodyTite treatment is simple and relaxing. As you lie back on a treatment table, we give you an injection that combines a local anesthetic and epinephrine. The epinephrine decreases bleeding. It also helps any excess fat swell and harden so it’s easier to remove.

The BodyTite device contains two electrodes. One goes under your skin, and the other rests on top of your skin. These electrodes deliver radiofrequency energy directly into fatty tissue, melting fat and triggering healing.

An internal node suctions away any residual fat. The RF energy helps the dermal and subdermal layers of your skin contract. You’re left with superb skin tightening and toning, without the “lumpy” look that sometimes occurs after liposuction.

How BodyTite heals

Recovery is quick. You don’t need anesthesia, so you won’t feel groggy afterward.

We do recommend that you take a few days off from most types of work. You need to modify intense physical activity for about two weeks. Most bruising, swelling, and tenderness disappear during that time. However, you could have some lingering swelling. 

We also suggest that you wear a compression garment under your clothes for about six weeks. Compression garments help control swelling and aid tissue contraction. 

How BodyTite lasts

If we remove fat during your BodyTite treatment, you notice the difference right away. Skin tightening works with your body’s natural healing timeline, so it takes longer to see the results. However, as long as you don’t stretch out your skin or put back excess pounds, your new figure is yours to keep.

Of course, your skin continues to age as you do. You may need touch-ups a few years down the road, as your skin starts to lose laxity due to aging. 

Is BodyTite for you?

BodyTite is most helpful for anyone who has sagging skin anywhere on their body. This could be due to:

If you’ve struggled with lax skin, with or without stubborn fat deposits, imagine being free of them for good. The best candidates for BodyTite are those who’ve already lost the majority of their excess fat and are either at or near their ideal weight. 

In addition to tightening skin, BodyTite can remove persistent fat from:
