Tighten Loose Skin With BodyTite Radiofrequency Technology

Southern California Center for Surgical Arts in Sherman Oaks, California Dr. Husam Elias  Tighten Loose Skin With BodyTite Ra

Although wrinkles are the first sign of aging that most people think about, sagging skin does more to give away your age than anything else. A turkey waddle, jowling, and drooping cheeks can undo even the most dewy-looking, unlined complexion.

In the past, the only way to correct loose, sagging skin that had lost its elasticity was to stretch it tighter and trim away the excess in cosmetic surgery procedures such as a face-lift, neck lift, or blepharoplasty. Although Dr. Husam Elias is an expert and experienced cosmetic surgeon, he now offers nonsurgical, FDA-cleared BodyTite™, FaceTite, and NeckTite radiofrequency skin-tightening treatments at the Southern California Center for Surgical Arts in Sherman Oaks, California.  The BodyTite system harnesses the power of radiofrequency (RF) energy to not only tighten your skin, but improve its quality, too.

Tightening from the inside

The BodyTite applicator consists of two components: 1) an internal mini cannula that delivers RF energy under your skin, while simultaneously melting and aspirating excess fat, and 2) an external electrode that coagulates blood vessels and heats the tissue matrix in your skin, stimulating healing and collagen production. Your BodyTite treatment prompts your skin to rebuild itself with new collagen and elastin as well as tighten up to compensate for the lesser volume due to removed fat.  

Nonsurgical tummy tuck

Although noninvasive body-contouring techniques have gained popularity over the last few years, if you have sagging skin as well as excess fat on your tummy, your doctor may have told you that you need a tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty.  A tummy tuck is a procedure that combines liposuction with skin-tightening surgery and abdominal muscle repair.

However, if you only have excess fat and drooping skin, you no longer have to undergo surgery.  BodyTite features a unique, patented radiofrequency assisted liposuction (RFAL™) technology that allows Dr. Elias to remove excess fat and tighten your skin at the same time.  BodyTite is at least four times faster than other laser-assisted liposuction devices.

Nonsurgical neck lift

If you have a turkey waddle or loose neck skin, you may have despaired that surgery was your only option, but the BodyTite system features a special handle designed just to treat the delicate neck area, called the NeckTite. Dr. Elias removes the fat from your double chin, while heating and healing your neck skin. As your skin undergoes collagen remodeling over the next 12 weeks, your jawline, chin, and neck firm up for a sleeker, longer, and more youthful look.

Nonsurgical face-lift

The compact FaceTite applicator is designed to improve and tighten the contours of your face, including our cheeks and under-eye area. The cannula doesn’t aspirate fat. It’s capped with a plastic tip to deliver RF energy only.

With FaceTite, Dr. Elias can:

The tiny cannula requires just a small incision, which heals with a barely visible scar. Also in contrast to a face-lift and other surgery, there’s almost no downtime with FaceTite.

Tighten and firm other problem areas

Dr. Elias can tighten skin, with or without fat removal, from other areas of your body to create a firmer and more flattering physique. You can choose to treat your:
