With the advancement of plastic surgery and cosmetic technology, patients are looking for new ways to reach their #bodygoals without invasive surgery. Luckily, when it comes to tightening the skin and removing looseness in problem areas, incision-based procedures like the tummy tuck are no longer the only option.

Dr. Agullo is using cutting-edge cosmetic procedures like BodyTite® and Renuvion® to return youth to your skin without requiring significant incisions or excisions. While these procedures do not remove the skin, BodyTite® and Renuvion® restore the vitality and youthful endurance to your contours.

How Does BodyTite® Get Rid Of Loose Skin?

Hitting the gym for ‘ab day’ can be one of the most frustrating sessions of our workout routine. Our core is especially susceptible to fat localization and, therefore, loose skin.

Unfortunately, the muscles in this area have a hard time fighting off sagging skin even if we are consistent with our cardio, nutrition, and resistance training.

This is why BodyTite® is essential for patients looking for a minimally invasive and effective way to eliminate lax skin. BodyTite® releases controlled radiofrequency energy directly into the tissue without any large incision sites. Unwanted fat is liquefied, which allows the skin to contract and tighten.

Uniquely, radiofrequency promotes a sort of ‘natural adhesive’ as it stimulates the collagen synthesis that creates the connective collagen formed under our skin.

BodyTite® can target laxity in areas like the abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, butt, and breasts, restoring smoothness and correcting elasticity.

How Does Renuvion® Get Rid Of Loose Skin?

Renuvion® is much like BodyTite® with its minimally invasive characteristics, ability to tighten and restore firmness, and overall effectiveness in reinforcing skin vitality.  What sets Renuvion® apart is its combination of helium, radiofrequency, and plasma to restore tightness to sagging skin. Smooth silhouettes and artistic contours are achieved as the treatment promotes collagen production, giving a natural improvement to the skin even months after your procedure.

BodyTite® and Renuvion® are very similar in their technology, utility, and high-quality results; it is often left to the doctor to choose what would work best for you.

Some plastic surgeons may find that one more effective than the other based on your unique qualities. For example, if your doctor finds that results are more reproducible with Renuvion® for large areas, then they may use Renuvion® over BodyTite®.

Whether it is BodyTite® or Renuvion®, you can feel confident in knowing your plastic surgeon will find the treatment most suitable for your care.
