We all want to appear healthy and youthful, but as we get older, our skin becomes thin and loose in certain areas. Pouches of fat also tend to deposit themselves in the least appropriate places. Despite our best efforts with diet and in the gym, the fat pockets remain, and skin starts to sag.
This is fixable with BodyTite PRO.
BodyTite PRO is a RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis) treatment by INMODE designed to put an end to these issues while minimizing both surgery and recovery time. Dr. Hernandez was the first practice in San Antonio to start offering BodyTite PRO, and is a leading provider with experience and expertise delivering exceptional results.
What is BodyTite PRO?
With so many advances in technology, many patients are looking for less-invasive alternatives to surgery. BodyTite PRO is a powerful treatment that firms the skin and reduces fat without leaving behind saggy, wrinkly skin. Patients are left with surgical-like results, yet have no large scars, need less downtime and enjoy permanent, beautiful results.
Who is an ideal candidate for treatment with BodyTite PRO
Are you feeling frustrated with problem spots of loose skin and excess fat across your body? Patients in their 40s and 50s tend to see the best results from BodyTite PRO, before skin becomes too loose and thin for these options.
BodyTite PRO is not a fit for those who suffer from certain skin diseases or infections, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, patients who suffer from some autoimmune diseases, and those who suffer from an intolerance to the local anesthetics used during treatment.
How does BodyTite PRO work?
BodyTite PRO heats the targeted skin using precision radiofrequency energy to firm the skin and melt stubborn fat cells beneath the skin. Dr. Hernandez then uses a thin tube (cannula) to gently remove the melted fat from the body. This radiofrequency heating stimulates a natural skin tightening response from your body, leaving you with a slimmer, natural-looking contour.
With BodyTite PRO, small needle punctures are used and hidden well within the folds of the skin. Once you’ve healed, there will be no visible scarring. BodyTite PRO treatment is a more minimally invasive alternative to surgery, thus resulting in less downtime for patients.
What areas of the body are treated with BodyTite PRO?
BodyTite PRO can be used just about anywhere you are struggling with localized areas of fat. This includes common problem areas like the stomach, arms, chest, knees, inner/outer thighs, and the hips (love handles/muffin top).
How many BodyTite PRO treatments will I need to reach my desired results?
In a vast majority of cases, only one BodyTite PRO session is necessary. Depending on your specific concerns, Dr. Hernandez can treat multiple areas in a single visit with each zone taking just 45 minutes.
How long do BodyTite PRO results last?
Results from BodyTite PRO are permanent, as long as the patient continues leading a healthy lifestyle.
What can I expect after BodyTite PRO treatment?
What Dr. Hernandez’s patients love most about BodyTite PRO is the immediate results. Following treatment, you will notice an instant change in the shape and firmness of the treated area. It’s important to note; however, that skin tightening and body contouring improve progressively due to collagen production and cellular metabolism. Optimal results are typically seen within 3 to 6 months after treatment.
Patients may experience mild side effects like tenderness and soreness in the treatment area(s) for several days. Keep the incisions clean and dry for several days post procedure to help ensure your skin heals optimally. Your specific downtime will depend on your treatment area(s) with Dr. Hernandez. You could expect a recovery period of roughly 2 days. Dr. Hernandez will provide you with any necessary care instructions following your treatment. A compression garment is recommended to assist with the healing process and ensure optimal results.
Many patients choose to combine BodyTite PRO with Morpheus8 treatment in the same session to enhance their results and produce firmer skin in common problem areas including the stomach, arms, chest, knees, inner/outer thighs, and the hips (love handles/muffin top).
