InMode RF Skin Tightening System
At last, the long-awaited InMode FaceTite and BodyTite system for incisionless skin tightening is now available at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa. Finally, a proven effective way to tighten the skin without surgical incisions, painful recovery and extended downtime.
Dr. Gilbert Lee is excited to announce that Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa is the first in San Diego to be able to offer patients the most effective non-surgical option for sagging skin on the face and body. InMode skin tightening outperforms other incisionless methods such as cold and heat therapies, non-focused radio-frequency modalities, ultrasound based and injection lipolysis. These systems claim to tighten skin, but fall short of the mark.
Furthermore, having the most experience with this system in the region, Dr Lee is an Inmode Luminary Instructor and teaches and trains other physicians how to sculpt with the Inmode devices. No one offers more experience with incisionless skin tightening as Dr. Gilbert Lee, and the team at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa.
How Inmode RF Skin Tightening Works
The Inmode RF system utilizes Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL), providing surgery-like results with a highly controlled radiofrequency energy in a highly controlled platform that allows skin and subcutaneous tissue to contract through heat application. The cannula is inserted into the skin via an insertion port the size of a small 18 gauge needle. The cannula tip features a plastic tip to prevent any accidental skin perforation. The device then creates an electrical current between the external electrode and the cannula to develop a contained thermal field. The device uses precise temperature control to coagulate fat and other soft tissue in the targeted area. Heating the papillary dermis and fibrous septa around the fat clusters to a temperature of 70 degrees Celsius causes collagen to contract significantly, producing the desired tight skin.
RFAL is also completely safe. The internal and external electrodes ensure precise temperature control, resulting in a thermal field that effectively coagulates soft tissues and tightens the skin without causing harm.
Patients can now achieve dramatic aesthetic outcomes without the scalpel or scars using novel FaceTite & BodyTite procedures.
The decision to undergo cosmetic surgery can be daunting for some, and before now, there was no real effective method of tightening the face and neck without surgery. With FaceTite, we can now deliver surgical results to patients without surgery. Not only can you see significant improvement in face and neck skin laxity, the results are more natural appearing than surgery.
- Mini-Facelift results in one quick treatment with less patient downtime.
- Unmatched skin contraction by simultaneously contracting the internal tissue and external skin’s surface. Clinical results show 36.4% skin tightening contraction at one year follow-up.
- Safe and Effective
FaceTite is performed in the Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa surgical suite under local anesthetic and one procedure is sufficient. Expect some swelling and bruising post procedure. FaceTite results appear over weeks and get better with continued skin contraction for up to one year.
“Despite the claims, nothing other than BodyTite really works. With competing systems, you may attain as much as 10% improvement in skin tightening, but BodyTite truly causes skin contraction, if used correctly.” – Dr. D. Duncan
The signs of aging are not isolated to sagging facial skin. Aging results in diminished skin tone and weakening of the subcutaneous tissue from a breakdown in collagen and elastin production. The overall effect is that skin falls away from the body and downward. This loss of skin and underlying tissue quality shows in sagging upper arms, excess skin along the bra line, abdominal skin laxity and draping skin on the thighs.
BodyTite provides superior skin tightening with RFAL. Dr. Diane Duncan, an early pioneer of the Inmode system, performed a clinical study of 12 BodyTite patients. When evaluated at 6 weeks the results showed 25.8% skin surface area reduction which further increased to 36.4% at 1 year. These studies show this technology is far superior to Smart Lipo, laser assisted liposuction, and traditional radio frequency devices.
Imagine no more bat wings, fewer tummy rolls, tighter thighs and a smooth upper body silhouette. These can be yours with BodyTite at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa.
FaceTite and BodyTite must be performed by a skilled professional, and like all medical devices or tools they are only as good as the person using them. The Changes team are renowned artists and body sculptors bringing this new technology to Southern California. With this new system the possibilities are endless for incisionless surgery.
