Non-invasive/Non-surgical Lifting and Tightening

Facetite • Necktite • Accutite • Bodytite

At AestheteMD we pride ourselves in bringing the most up to date expertise and technology to our patients in the Ottawa region. As a premiere aesthetic clinic we are proud to be the only surgical centre in Ottawa to offer the most advanced and effective technology in body contouring.

The Tite system is a new and advanced technology that provides minimally invasive lifting and tightening in select areas of the body. This procedure is only performed by surgeons and not available to any other practitioners. Bodytite is the first minimally invasive technology that can achieve results at times comparable to surgery. This scarless and incision free procedure generally uses small access points to deliver bipolar radio frequency energy to the subcutaneous tissues. By directly accessing the fibroseptal network which are the connections of the skin to the underlying tissues, and combining the procedure with minimal liposuction, this procedure provides unparalleled contouring of fat and tightening of loose skin in stubborn areas of the body such as the arms, knees, and abdomen.

How does it work?

The Bodytite system uses radio frequency energy. This type of energy has long proven its safety and efficacy in the aesthetic industry. The most unique feature of Bodytite is its ability to allow your surgeon to deliver this energy directly under this skin, while precisely monitoring in real time the distribution of heat both in the deep tissues and on the surface of the skin. This close monitoring of heat allows your surgeon to deliver the maximal safe levels of heat to the fibroseptal network that connects the surface of the skin to the deep tissues. By tightening these skin connections, Facetite tightens and smooths loose and wrinkled skin unlike any other technology. Furthermore, the heat stimulates new collagen and elastin production which are the essential components of youthful, smooth and tight skin.

How is the treatment done?

Dr. Javidnia performs this procedure in our state-of-the art private operating suite under local anesthesia with oral sedation. Our expert team of nurses and physicians ensure the utmost comfort. The procedure takes approximately 1 hour to perform. There are small entry points used without any large incisions. After the procedure a pressure garment is applied and patients are discharged home.

How long does it take to heal?

We usually expect some redness and swelling for 3-5 days after the procedure. We ask that our patients wear their pressure garment continuously for 3 days. The recovery for this procedure is generally not painful due to its very minimally invasive nature. As such no narcotic medications are required during recovery. Most of our patients use only Acetamenophen if necessary. Some mild swelling can persist for up to 2 weeks, however after day 3 and removal of the compression garment we expect return to work and regular activities and application of regular skin care or make-up. Exercise can be slowly resumed 2 weeks after the procure. Treatment results start to show at approximately 6 weeks and continue to evolve for 6 to 8 months after.
