"UPDATE!!!! I got a chemical peel last week to treat the pigmentation. My first ever! Not going to lie, it was painful (worth it) and I wanted to stop. But Felicia was so patient with me! She was a cheerleader throughout and kept my mind off of the burning sensation.I was in and out of the office in about 30 minutes, by the next day, peeling had started around my mouth. In 5 days flat, my face was completely cleared and so, so fresh!They're calling me baby face at the office and I don't mind it one bit!"- R.B. / Yelp / May 03, 2018

"Had my dermaplaning treatment and custom facial with Suzanne and it was amazing from start to finish. Check in was a breeze (I recommend printing the paperwork and filling it all out before your appointment because there are quite a few pages). The rooms are nice and relaxing with THE most comfortable bed sheets-almost fell asleep a few times. Definitely recommend this place and I will most certainly be back! Thank you again, Elevate!"- J.R. / Yelp / Apr 12, 2018
BodyTite is a minimally invasive treatment that offers excellent results. It is not recommended for patients with excessive sagging skin and signs of advanced aging, nor should it be a solution for weight loss. Patients should be at a healthy weight when considering this treatment. It is best used for smaller areas that need targeted contouring. The best candidates for BodyTite treatments wish to:
- Avoid plastic surgery and surgical recovery, downtime, and scarring
- Reduce stubborn areas of fat
- Improve the appearance of wrinkled skin and sagging areas
- Improve the contour and silhouette of the body
- Improve tightness and firmness in areas where skin laxity resides
What to Expect
BodyTite is performed at Elevate Medical Spa and Cosmetic Surgery in one of our accredited treatment rooms. Most patients will find the procedure comfortable with a local anesthesia, but depending on the area being treated, general anesthesia may be used. Unlike surgical body lifts or skin tightening procedures where larger incisions are made, BodyTite requires a small 3mm incision in the skin so the cannula can effectively enter the skin. An internal and external thermometer will protect the patient from burns as it heats, loosens, and liquefies the fat with radiofrequency waves. After a few minutes of performing this step, the fat is suctioned out of the body and will continue to leave the body after the procedure is over with the body's natural elimination process. The heat used during the procedures stimulates the production of collagen, essentially working to tighten the skin and connective tissue for immediate skin contraction. The BodyTite procedure typically takes about 30 – 45 minutes per area treated. Dr. Parker and/or Dr. Hanz will evaluate and determine if a single session or if multiple sessions may be needed for optimal results.
After the procedure, patients will be released home to rest for a couple of days. There will be some swelling in the treated areas, which usually resolves in about a week. We recommend patients take it easy and avoid rigorous activity for about two weeks. A compression garment will be supplied and patients should wear this over the treated areas to promote healing while maintaining the new body shape. Many patients notice their results immediately after treatment, but as the collagen continues to work under the skin, optimal results usually are seen within 3 – 6 months. It is important that patients adhere to a healthy lifestyle after a BodyTite treatment. While the fat that is removed cannot return, new fat cells can develop and the remaining fat cells can grow larger if the patient gains weight.
