Sagging skin around the arms, stomach, hips, and thighs can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. If you’ve considered undergoing surgery to tighten loose skin, there is now a nonsurgical option available. Dr. Yavrouian is proud to offer the BodyTite procedure at his practice, a non-surgical solution for anyone who wants to tighten skin and counteract the effects of aging.
Patients who have excess fat and poor skin elasticity are the best candidates for this treatment. BodyTite uses Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) to break down fat and also trigger a skin contraction from thermal heat energy delivered into the tissue.
The procedure is fairly simple and performed right in our office. The doctor inserts a very thin cannula into the skin and the tip of the cannula is directed only to connective tissue. An external electrode helps create a controlled thermal field and the doctor increases the temperature to help melt the fatty tissue and heat up other tissues. This process triggers the collagen production and the tissues contract quickly.
The result is tighter, toned, and more youthful looking skin — all without a single surgical incision.
