What’s the Difference Between BodyTite, BodyFX, and Other Types of Body Shaping?
When it comes to the differences between types of body shaping procedures, some lead to subtle results, while others are more noticeable. On a macro level, there are two major types of body shaping:
- Surgical and More Invasive Procedures
These procedures include liposuction, tummy tucks, and other surgical approaches to help remove excess fat.
- Non-surgical and Less Invasive Procedures
These procedures include RFAL Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis therapies such as BodyTite, BodyFX, and FaceTite, CoolSculpting, and similar minimally invasive processes.
On a micro level, the differences between the more innovative techniques used for modern body sculpting can be broken down. Take a look at the differences between some of social media’s most talked about body shaping procedures:
This treatment utilizes something called a cryolipolysis device to cool excess fat cells. This effectively destroys the fat cells and flushes them from the body. It can be used to eliminate fat in the abdomen, chin, and thigh areas. Early criticism of the process yielded less impressive results compared with other types of body sculpting procedures.
BodyTite is a minimally invasive body shaping procedure that utilizes RFAL for three-dimensional remodeling of the abdominal, breast, thigh, underarm and knee areas. Patients opt for BodyTite for it’s amazing results in the reduction of excess fat. There are also few to no side effects and treatment sessions only last 30 minutes.
BodyFX is another RFAL process that targets the back, abdomen, love handles, hips, buttocks, thighs, and arms to eliminate fat tissue and help target cellulite. Although BodyFX may require several treatment sessions for patients to see full results, they often see immediate improvement
For those who are seeking to tighten smaller areas of the body, face, and neck, including remedying jowls, folds in the face, and creases, FaceTite is a safe and effective, minimally-invasive contouring solution.
