When you’ve worked hard to lose weight or maintain a healthy lifestyle, it can be discouraging to be left with loose skin and fat deposits in areas that are difficult to pinpoint. Many people struggle with cosmetic issues like these as they age, lose weight, or bear children. In the past, it was challenging to address stubborn fat and skin laxity without removing large areas of tissue. Luckily, we now have advanced technology that lets us tighten areas of loose skin without excessive tissue removal or damage to healthy skin. Minimally invasive skin tightening treatments can accentuate your contours and give you the sleek, smooth silhouette that may have eluded you in the past.
Renuvion™ uses a combination of radiofrequency (RF) energy and cold helium plasma to tighten skin. It can be used in several areas of the body, including those that can be hard to treat with other methods. The Renuvion™ probe is inserted underneath the skin and heats the underlying tissues, causing them to contract. The precise application provides smooth results in areas such as the:
- Face and neck
- Abdomen and flanks
Dr. Hotchandani has trademarked the ReNUplasty® technique that combines Renuvion™ technology with VASERlipo® to provide superior fat removal and skin tightening with less trauma to the surrounding tissues. Renuvion™ is designed to be both safe and effective. Downtime is relatively short, with patients typically able to resume their regular activities within a week or so. Results are usually seen within six weeks and continue to improve over several months.
BodyTite™ takes things one step further by providing fat reduction benefits in addition to tightening skin. This device utilizes RF energy to heat the connective tissues underneath the skin while also melting fat deposits. The fat is then naturally metabolized and eliminated by the body. BodyTite™ is an excellent, minimally invasive contouring treatment for the:
- Face and neck
- Chest and breasts
The BodyTite™ procedure can be done using local anesthesia or sedation. This treatment may be the ideal solution for those who have tried everything else but still struggle with certain problem areas. At Hotchandani Laser, Vein, and Cosmetic Surgery, Bodytite™ is effectively used for mild-to-moderate correction during breast lift surgery, minimizing the risk of scarring.
Ultimate Body Sculpting
Achieving a perfectly sculpted figure will likely be an aesthetic ideal for many more generations. New technologies, such as the ones mentioned above, have allowed us to provide patients with results that are better than ever before. These treatments give us surgical precision and give patients the refined body contours they have envisioned for themselves with less downtime than traditional skin tightening surgeries.
