Loose skin of the body is a common and frustrating problem, especially since it often results from milestone events like weight loss or pregnancy.

Aging may also contribute to laxity, as loss of collagen and elastin diminish the skin’s elastic nature and hinders its ability to strongly adhere to the underlying structures. Fortunately, advances in cosmetic dermatology have led to the invention of energy-based therapies that can minimize skin laxity, revealing the natural contours of your body.

Skin laxity management is an integral part of modern body contouring procedures. Nowadays, liposuction is often combined with a skin tightening procedure for the optimal outcome.

subdermal skin tightening procedures offered include:

Dr. Hooman Khorasani is one of New York’s greatest body contouring experts that offers subdermal skin tightening with BodyTite®, FaceTite®, AccuTite® and J-Plasma. These revolutionary devices harness the power of radio frequency energy to substantially improve skin laxity with minimal risks, scarring, and downtime. This is in stark contrast to the surgical removal of excess skin, as this highly invasive procedure incurs substantial scarring, a prolonged recovery, and a slew of unwanted complications.

Over the course of 15 years, Dr. Khorasani has helped improve the skin’s appearance for thousands of patients of all ages and complexion types. Always pursuing the best possible treatment options for his patients, Dr. Khorasani consistently invests in the latest technology and mentors other professionals who have sought him out for his expertise in this area.

What is BodyTite and AccuTite®?

BodyTite® and AccuTite® are part of a family of new subdermal cutting-edge technology introduced to the aesthetic surgery arena for skin tightening of the body. They are probes of various sizes that are inserted under the skin’s surface to heat the skin from beneath, and stimulate cells to produce collagen.

This device comes with a variety of attachments and settings that allows it to be used to target different anatomical areas. The BodyTite probe is the largest in the family and targets areas like the stomach, back, buttocks, arms, and thighs. Accutite is the smallest probe and is used to tighten skin in more delicate areas such as the lower eyelids, nasolabial folds, and jowls.  

Both treatments are considered minimally invasive and have the ability to tighten and lift desired areas of the body without having to undergo an invasive surgery. The technology uses RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis) energy in order to heat the dermis in a precise and controlled fashion, stimulating cells to produce new and healthy collagen. This is a wonderful option for patients who desire skin tightening without having to undergo an invasive surgery.

Another member of this family is FaceTite® with treatment zones that include the neck and lower face including jowls. Learn more about FaceTite on our Non-Surgical Face & Neck Lift page.

BodyTite treatment zones include:
Stomach, chest, breasts, flanks, back, buttocks, arms, knees, inner/outer thighs, and calves.

AccuTite treatment zones include:

Lower & upper eyelids, nasolabial folds, jowls, and labia majora.

What is FaceTite?

FaceTite is a minimally invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia and light sedation that tightens and lifts the skin without having to undergo an invasive surgery. The device uses RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis) to provide controlled heat to the skin of the face. The radio-frequency energy, sometimes combined with liposuction, works to melt fat and tighten the skin. This non-invasive procedure is the closest result to a surgical neck lift, with a fraction of the downtime.

What is a Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening treatment?

Renuvion (J-Plasma) is a non-surgical skin tightening device that utilizes radiofrequency energy to produce helium-derived plasma in order to help remodel the skin. When administered beneath the skin’s surface (subdermally), the precise heat from the plasma serves to immediately contract the skin and initiate long-term collagen synthesis. This results in smoother, firmer skin quality and skin that adheres more closely to the underlying fascia. This heating process is analogous to traditional laser technology, such as laser lipo, that is used subdermally to heat the dermis and build collagen. The main benefit of plasma energy over laser use is the narrow field of energy that is produced by plasma. This newer technology results in more precise heating, less collateral damage to the surrounding tissue and fewer adverse side effects. The production of new, healthy collagen serves to maintain the immediate skin tightening effects for several years following treatment.

Please note that Renuvion (J-Plasma) may also be applied to the superficial skin to mildy enhance elasticity while simultaneously erasing signs of aging like discoloration, fine lines, and deep wrinkles. Please visit our Laser Skin Resurfacing Page to determine if you are a good candidate for facial plasma resurfacing.
