Are FaceTite and BodyTite Safe?

FaceTite and BodyTite are minimally invasive treatments that work to reduce signs of aging, such as loose skin, excess fat, and wrinkles. Typically, patients choose the procedures as an alternative to a facelift, tummy tuck, or other invasive body contouring surgery. Although the results of these treatments are equivalent to skin removal surgery, FaceTite and BodyTite offer some distinct advantages, including safety.

Since the procedures are less invasive than excisional surgery, they are completely safe for patients of all skin tones and types, with minimal side effects. If you have additional questions about whether FaceTite and BodyTite are safe for you, Dr. Steele and his team will assess your situation during your consultation.

How do FaceTite and BodyTite Work?

Just like with surgical body contouring, FaceTite and BodyTite use traditional liposuction techniques to remove excess fat from the body, face, and neck. However, unlike excisional surgical procedures, the treatments do not remove excess skin, avoiding long scars. Instead, the BodyTite and FaceTite handpieces utilize radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production, thicken the skin, and tighten the skin over time. Combining radiofrequency with liposuction is innovative and impactful since reduces the need for invasive incisions. This means that with FaceTite and BodyTite, scarring is minimal.

FaceTite treats several areas of the lower face and neck, including the jawline, chin, jowls, and neck. Meanwhile, BodyTite is used to treat various body areas with excess fat and skin such as the abdomen, arms, thighs, back, bra line, and waist.

What Makes BodyTite and FaceTite Safe?

Since FaceTite and BodyTite use minimally invasive techniques, the treatments pose significantly fewer risks than a traditional excisional procedure. For instance, the smaller incisions reduce the risk of scarring, infections, and nerve damage. Instead, patients will only notice mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness for a few days, in the areas treated. The recovery time is much quicker than with more extensive procedures.

BodyTite and FaceTite are very safe because they are performed under local anesthesia with minimal sedation. Local anesthetic injections reduce pain, and most patients only report a mild numbing or warming sensation while they are being treated. Finally, the advanced instruments used to perform the procedure feature dual temperature sensors, which ensure that the skin does not become damaged through excessive exposure to radiofrequency energy. These safeguards help protect against heat damage and hyperpigmentation.

More serious complications from FaceTite or BodyTite treatments are possible, but they are rare. For instance, infections or slow healing may require antibiotics or wounds care. Our detail-oriented team will work hard to make sure that your FaceTite or BodyTite procedure is as safe as possible.
