Skin tightening in areas like the tummy, thighs, arms, and around the knees
For skin tightening in areas like the tummy, thighs, arms, and around the knees, BodyTite induces intense collagen stimulation by heating the undersurface of the skin with small radiofrequency probes. BodyTite is performed under tumescent local anaesthesia, often in combination with Vaser body contouring during the same procedure, for added skin tightening.
Internal and external skin temperatures are constantly monitored during the procedure in order to reach sufficient temperatures to tighten skin without risking complications. A compression garment is worn after the procedure for four weeks.
Bodytite is sufficient in many cases to tighten skin in areas that would previously have only been treated with surgery such as tummy tuck. Many people who have lost weight or given birth and are left with loose skin choose BodyTite rather than more invasive surgery. In Ireland, BodyTite is only available at Venus Medical.
