Bodytite / FacetiteWilliamsville, NY
Aging, gravity, sun damage, and even weight loss can cause the skin on the face and body to lose elasticity and begin to sag. And anyone who has experienced this loss of firmness remembers when they first noticed their skin on the face, neck, eyelids, abdomen, or arms was becoming loose.
Bodytite / Facetite
In the past, the only truly effective solution for skin tightening was plastic surgery, such as a facelift or other surgical skin-tightening procedures for the body.
Dr. Raymond Schultz, the well-respected, board-certified plastic surgeon who leads Artesia Plastic Surgery in Williamsville, New York, offers BodyTite® and FaceTite®, two revolutionary non-surgical skin tightening treatments that are excellent alternatives to plastic surgery for qualifying patients.
Recognized as one of the Top Plastic Surgeons in the US, Dr. Schultz has seen the transformative results delivered by BodyTite® and FaceTite® and highly recommends these procedures for many of his patients.
Am I a Candidate for BodyTite® and FaceTite®?
BodyTite® and FaceTite® are suitable for men and women who want to avoid surgery, considerable downtime, visible scars, or the high cost of surgery.
- FaceTite® is best for individuals with mild to moderate facial skin laxity (loose skin) and fat deposits on the face and neck.
- BodyTite® is best for individuals with mild to moderate loose skin and stubborn, diet-resistant fat on their arms, tummy, thighs, buttocks, or knees.
Those with significantly sagging skin and facial tissue or pockets of fat are likely to achieve better results with a more traditional surgical facelift.
Candidates for FaceTite® and BodyTite® should not smoke or use tobacco products as the chemicals they contain adversely impact the results of these treatments.
What Are the Benefits of BodyTite® and FaceTite®?
FaceTite® is often referred to as a non-surgical facelift procedure and can effectively recontour these areas:
- Lower face
- Jawline (jowls)
BodyTite® targets larger areas and can sculpt the following body parts:
BodyTite® and FaceTite® provide long-lasting results that make you look younger and more fit so that you can feel confident about your body and face without visible scarring and extensive downtime.
What Is Involved in a BodyTite® or FaceTite® Procedure?
An in-depth consultation with Dr. Schultz is the first step, at which time you can discuss all your cosmetic goals and get answers from a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon.
After hearing your aesthetic concerns and examining the areas you’d like treated, Dr. Schultz will provide his expert opinion and create a customized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
BodyTite® and FaceTite® both use RF (radiofrequency) energy to eliminate fat deposits and restore skin’s firmness and elasticity. These procedures are similar to liposuction as they require only tiny incisions, but BodyTite® and FaceTite® are much less invasive.
Before your BodyTite® or FaceTite® treatment begins, local anesthesia and sedation may be administered to ensure your comfort.
During your procedure, a cannula (thin tube) is inserted under the skin through a small incision, while electrodes are placed on top of the treatment area. This process delivers radiofrequency energy as well as thermal heat, liquefying fat cells and remodeling skin and underlying tissue.
Your BodyTite® or FaceTite® procedure may last anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour.
What Is Recovery From FaceTite® or BodyTite® Like?
Expect some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the first few days following your FaceTite® or BodyTite® procedure.
On average, most patients return to work or their daily activities about two days after treatment, but for others, it can take up to two weeks.
A compression garment must be worn for two weeks with FaceTite® and four weeks with BodyTite® to reduce swelling and help ensure the best results possible.
What Results Can I Expect After FaceTite® or BodyTite®?
FaceTite® and BodyTite® provide immediate results that continue to improve for up to a year after treatment and last five years or more.
