We’ve all looked in the mirror and seen something we didn’t like but felt intimidated by the surgical treatment options. Men and women alike have postponed feeling better about themselves because they don’t want to take extended time off work or be tied down at home recovering from a complex surgery. Fortunately, thanks to technological advancements, invasive surgery isn’t the only option anymore! The Plastic Surgery Group of Memphis wants to introduce you to InMode’s BodyTite, FaceTite, AccuTite, and Morpheus8 radio frequency treatments as non-invasive and minimally invasive alternatives!
What Is Radio Frequency, How Does It Work, And Problems It Can Address
Have you ever wondered how celebrities maintain that ageless glow? We have the secret: it’s all about radio frequency (RF) treatments. Imagine a magic wand that dives deep into your skin, warming it up just the right amount without causing any harm to the surface. That’s RF for you!
So, how does this advanced technology work? Your skin is a (metaphorical) beautiful tapestry made of collagen and elastin, the threads that keep your skin firm and bouncy. Over time, these threads can lose their tightness, leading to saggy skin and wrinkles. RF treatments send gentle waves of energy into your skin that heat the deeper layers to give a little nudge to your body. Your body responds to the RF treatment by creating fresh, new threads! The result is skin that’s tighter, smoother, and simply radiant.
RF treatments also boost blood flow, showering the treated area with nutrients and oxygen, which enhance the rejuvenation experience. It’s like giving your skin a VIP spa treatment from the inside out.
Whether you’re unhappy with saggy skin, pesky wrinkles, or just craving a more youthful glow, RF should be your go-to solution. We provide non-invasive or minimally invasive approaches to address various cosmetic concerns. These options, performed by our physician assistants and board-certified plastic surgeons, offer patients long-lasting results that require little to no downtime.
Let’s check out some of RF’s star treatments that are offered right here at PSG!
BodyTite: A Minimally Invasive Approach To Body Contouring
Suppose you have been wanting a sleeker silhouette without the fuss of an invasive surgery that requires a longer recovery time. In that case, you should schedule a consultation to see if BodyTite is right for your goals! This minimally invasive surgical procedure makeover has become a game-changer and an A-lister in the body contouring community.
With BodyTite, long scars or downtime are no longer required in order to see an improvement in loose or hanging skin. This technology is powered by radio frequency energy that results in three-dimensional tissue remodeling by heating collagen and fat coagulation. The RF treatment kills fat as it tightens the fibers in between and around the fat cells. The heat energy transfer across the skin is precisely controlled, allowing for measurable improvements in skin tightness.
The BodyTite system also offers unparalleled safety by continuously monitoring both internal and external tissue temperatures to prevent burns. The BodyTite treatment does require small incisions, making it a minimally invasive surgical procedure with no prolonged downtime.
But BodyTite isn’t just about looking good; it’s about feeling like the best version of yourself. The surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Group of Memphis rave about BodyTite and often combine it with traditional liposuction for elevated results. BodyTite is most commonly used on the abdomen, arms, thighs and buttocks because it creates smoother contours and tighter skin.
FaceTite: A Minimally Invasive Facelift Contouring Option
Using the same radio frequency technology as BodyTite, FaceTite targets the common insecurities patients have regarding signs of aging in their face by giving their skin the coveted “lifted” look.
FaceTite is a minimally invasive surgical face contouring procedure that also provides significant skin contraction. The FaceTite system uses a cannula with an internal electrode that is inserted through a tiny incision. Attached to the cannula, but resting atop the skin, is a metal wand that features an external electrode.
The radio frequency energy passes from the internal electrode to the external electrode, heating the fat and surrounding tissues without damaging those tissues. The liquefied fat is then suctioned away through the cannula. The RF energy that has heated the dermis layer of the skin causes the skin to contract and tighten, firming the area.
Accutite: Precision Skin Tightening for Impactful Results
In the grand gallery of beauty treatments, AccuTite stands out as the master of detail. Think of it as the fine brush that paints delicate strokes, refining your beauty with impeccable accuracy.
AccuTite is the genius tool used to make subtle enhancements that make all the difference to the jowls, neck, or under-eye areas. It sculpts and refines using advanced radio frequency, turning even the smallest areas of concern into masterpieces of contour and definition!
Morpheus8: The Secret to Youthful Skin
Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive procedure that is safe for all skin tones and ethnicities. It’s like giving your skin a workout, pushing it to regenerate and rejuvenate. The tool uses tiny needles combined with radio-frequency heat waves to significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines, saggy skin, acne scars, and even large pores in less than six weeks.
This fractional resurfacing technique stimulates collagen production and targets the deepest layers of your skin with little downtime. It is an effective standalone treatment or supplement to other aesthetic or anti-aging treatments, such as lasers, facials, dermal fillers and neurotoxins like Botox. Whether your goal is to tighten areas with high skin laxity on your face or body, refine your jawline, improve texture, or improve the appearance of scars, Morpheus8 is compatible with all skin types.
Morpheus8 can be used on the face and on the body. Morpheus8 Body has needles coated with a protective layer that goes into the tissue beneath the skin. These needles help make the fat firm and tighten the connective tissue. At the same time, controlled radio frequency energy is delivered to the targeted areas. Morpheus8 Body is the first and only FDA-approved technology to provide deep subdermal adipose tissue remodeling or SARD. This technology allows fat reduction, skin remodeling and resurfacing of larger body areas like the abdomen and thighs.
No other treatment can address so many concerns with one visit. Morpheus8 Body penetrates and delivers energy to different levels depending on the treatment goals: deeper levels to contract and tighten and a more superficial level to smooth and firm, thin, crepey skin.
Celebrities like Eva Longoria and Kim Kardashian swear by it, and if that’s not a testament to its effectiveness, we don’t know what is. With just three to four sessions, a bit of yearly in-office maintenance and a medical-grade skincare routine at home, you’re set for a youthful glow that lasts a lifetime.
What Are the Advantages Radio Frequency Treatment Has Over Traditional Surgery?
- Minimal downtime. Just walk in, get treated, walk out, and return to your regularly scheduled agenda in a timely matter. It’s the minimal downtime beauty treatment we’ve all been waiting for.
- RF offers precision like no other. Targeting just the right areas ensures natural and subtle results, enhancing your beauty and shape without changing your essence.
- 3. RF offers the allure of transformation without the baggage of traditional surgery. There’s no need to worry about tell-tale surgical marks. Your beauty secret remains just that—a secret.
What Does the Recovery Process and Results Look Like?
We’ve already mentioned the convenience of these treatments and their minimal downtime. But what does that mean for you?
For most, if not all, of these procedures, you can expect to:
- Return home the same day (though you should plan to have a ride).
- Return to your regular activities in two to ten days, depending on the size of the treated area and procedure.
- Experience some side effects, such as swelling, redness, and discomfort for a short period afterward.
- See some results on the same day or in less than a week.
- See the best results in as little as twelve weeks.
- Enjoy the results for twelve months with little to no scarring or other unwanted evidence of treatment on the skin.
