What Are BodyTite® and FaceTite®?
BodyTite® and FaceTite® are minimally invasive contouring procedures that target and tighten loose skin to produce a firm, sculpted figure. These treatments are a great complement to liposuction or natural weight loss, which often leave behind excess skin. They are also effective for patients who have developed loose skin due to the natural aging process. BodyTite® and FaceTite® use radiofrequency energy to heat the skin, causing it to tighten while also producing collagen for further benefits. These treatments can address loose skin in the following areas:
How Much Do BodyTite® and FaceTite® Cost?
At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, we take a personalized approach to every BodyTite® and FaceTite® procedure. This means that the cost of your treatment will depend on variables like your current condition and unique treatment goals.

What Are the BodyTite® and FaceTite® Treatments Like?
BodyTite® and FaceTite® are minimally invasive procedures that are often performed using only local anesthesia. However, general anesthesia may still be used in some cases. During treatment, a small needle device is placed beneath the skin in the desired treatment area. This device emits radiofrequency energy to the surrounding tissue, causing it to contract while stimulating collagen production. Incisions are incredibly small and discreet, so any scarring is virtually invisible. A single treatment session typically takes about one hour.
What is Recovery Like Following BodyTite® and FaceTite®?
The recovery from BodyTite® and FaceTite® treatments will depend on the area of the body that was treated. The initial period of downtime can last between one and 10 days. During this time, you will have to avoid exercise and other strenuous activities. However, patients are often able to return to work and other activities within just a few days.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from BodyTite® and FaceTite®?
You will notice initial results from your BodyTite® or FaceTite® treatment immediately after your treatment session. As collagen takes effect in the skin, these results will continue to improve, with the most significant results becoming visible about one to three months after treatment. Some patients may need multiple treatment sessions in order to achieve their desired results.
