The new BodyTite™ (Invasix) procedure is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL™) to achieve effective body shaping as well as significant skin tightening. BodyTite™ combines liposuction and tissue tightening in a particularly gentle and careful manner, and thereby achieves, fast, safe, consistent and lasting results.
The radiofrequency energy moves from a small, internal electrode to a larger, external electrode and brings about a gentle, consistent heating and coagulation of fat and tissue. This heating, which precedes the liposuction, makes the BodyTite™ procedure particularly gentle and almost free of swelling and pain. The coagulated and liquefied tissue is aspirated through the internal electrode of the handpiece, whereby the heating leads to effective body shaping and skin tightening at the same time. The temperature of the fatty tissue reached always remains in the safe range due to constant checking. So with respect to other laser-assisted liposuction methods, BodyTite™ enables gentler ambulant treatment with greater safety and effectiveness. The intervention time is up to 4 times faster due to the simultaneous suction and coagulation.
The procedure’s main areas of application are the abdomen, hips, buttocks, back, inside and outside of the thighs (‘saddlebags’), upper arm, neck (double chin) and lipedemas of the lower leg. Very good results in the treatment of cellulite as well as tissue tightening after weight reduction can also be achieved with BodyTite™. Moreover, the procedure is suitable for combination treatments in the course of abdominal wall lifts (‘tummy tucks’) and mini facelifts.
