At Carolinas Centers for Cosmetic Surgery in Charlotte, we offer FaceTite® and BodyTite® to tighten, tone, and contour the face and body for a younger-looking appearance. These two effective treatments are ideal for those wanting to avoid the scars, surgery, downtime, and costs associated with more complex cosmetic procedures.
FaceTite and BodyTite are minimally-invasive body contouring procedures that harness the power of radiofrequency (RF) technology to produce exceptional results.
Radiofrequency energy forces dermal and subdermal connective tissue to contract and adipose tissue to coagulate. This process tightens tissues, melts away fat, and stimulates collagen production for natural-looking, long-lasting improvement.
Why People Decide to Get FaceTite or BodyTite
FaceTite and BodyTite can improve your appearance in a multitude of ways, such as:
- Tightening the skin on your lower face, jowls, and neck
- Restoring a more youthful appearance
- Addressing underarm fat
- Smoothing out the stomach
- Achieving tighter, more toned thighs
- Shrinking “love handles” for a slimmer appearance
- Improving gynecomastia
- Precisely shaping the body for a beautiful contour
- Strategically defines certain parts of the face and body
- Tightens excess skin without surgery
Advantages Over Other Types of Treatment
FaceTite and BodyTite can produce surgery-like results without the downtime, scarring, risks, and costs associated with more invasive procedures. In many cases, FaceTite and BodyTite can also be performed under local anesthesia, reducing the risk of treatment complications and speeding up your recovery time.
The Procedure Process Explained
FaceTite delivers radiofrequency technology to targeted areas, such as the neck or cheekbones, to stimulate collagen production, tighten the skin, and reduce fat. This process provides an effect similar to a facelift and is thus known as a “non-surgical facelift.”
BodyTite uses the same radiofrequency technology to target sagging skin and fat deposits on the stomach, hips, thighs, buttocks, breasts, and arms. The radiofrequency waves tighten skin and liquefy fat, resulting in a “shrink wrap” effect. BodyTite can be performed with liposuction to produce even more dramatic results.
Recovery and Aftercare
Since FaceTite and BodyTite are minimally-invasive procedures, you can expect little downtime and easy recovery. You may experience some swelling and discomfort, which you can manage with ice packs and OTC pain medication.
You may be able to return to your normal activities within a few days of the procedure, depending on the extent of your treatment. Dr. Mohamed recommends avoiding strenuous exercise for at least four to six weeks, and he may also recommend wearing compression garments to optimize healing and enhance your results.
While treatment results are visible almost immediately after your procedure, you should see final results within six to twelve weeks.
How Long Will My Results Last?
You should benefit from your results for a long time, depending on how well you take care of your body following the procedure. Fat cells do not regenerate, so any fat removed with FaceTite or BodyTite is permanent and long-lasting. However, you can always grow new fat cells, so we recommend maintaining a healthy weight to prolong your results.
Additionally, any collagen stimulated during the procedure to tighten and improve the skin will naturally deplete over time. However, with the increased collagen levels, the effects of aging will likely be slower than before your treatment.
