Cellulite Reduction Treatment: BodyTite

Cellulite is a very common skin problem faced by a lot of people. About 90% of women have cellulite, starting from ages 25 to 35 due to many factors. This is more common in women than in men, as most women start developing cellulite after puberty. Cellulite is visible bumpy skin and appears as a lumpy structure on areas like thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen. Due to cellulite buildup, the skin’s texture looks like ‘cottage cheese’ or ‘orange peel’. Cellulite is a natural occurrence and involves a formation of fibrous connective cords under the skin to the underlying muscle, with the fat lying between. Many women choose to treat cellulite using different treatment methods such as scrubs, anti-cellulite body butter, firming creams, etc. Although most of these methods do not work unless supplemented with weight loss and exercise. Other medical approaches can be taken to reduce cellulite, such as BodyTite. 

 

BodyTite is a novel, Radiofrequency-Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) technology that targets stubborn fat under the skin and tightens skin through the use of thermal energy. This procedure also initiates collagen formation, which eventually proves to contribute to a better skin condition. BodyTite is minimally invasive and better for patients who are interested in losing weight but cannot do traditional liposuction, as their bodyweight not matching the required threshold for liposuction. This procedure also helps tighten the skin that is left saggy due to age, fat loss, or even post-liposuction procedure. BodyTite leaves little to no scar as well, which makes it safe, with less downtime, and optimum result. 

 

Cellulite is a natural occurrence affecting 9 out of 10 women. Cellulite is not just a side effect of weight gain, but it is a condition that affects women of all body types. But if chosen to, this can be treated in a medical procedure called BodyTite. BodyTite detaches the fibrous bands surrounding cellulite and therefore the anchor that causes the visual pinching and puckering appearance is released. To put it in simpler words, this technology uses radiofrequency to target and fat cells, liquify the cells with heat. This makes the technique of BodyTite up to 35% more effective than other invasive surgical procedures. 

 

“A Clinical and Histological Study of Radiofrequency-Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) Medicated Skin Tightening and Cellulite Improvement”, an article in the  Journal of Cosmetics, Dermatological Sciences, and Applications, breaks down a clinical study done to look at the results on BodyTite treating cellulite. The sample size of patients treated with RFAL saw skin firming results. The cutaneous shrinkage of arms was remarkable. Patient satisfaction at 6 months was always positive except for 1 exception. Along with that, researchers observed the destruction of collagen fibers in the deep dermis as well as the dermal-hypodermal junction after the treatment. BodyTite technology offers exceptional outcomes for cellulite reduction. It is highly effective and clinically proven.
