Enhance Your Appearance with Nonsurgical FaceTite and BodyTite

Using the advanced BodyTite™ system, Dr. Louis Mes provides results similar to those achieved through facelift and tummy tuck, but through much less invasive means. These methods employ radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to improve skin elasticity at a subdermal level while removing stubborn fat deposits. At our Lafayette, LA, practice, Dr. Mes and our team can use these devices to provide significant results with little to no downtime.

BodyTite offers powerful aesthetic results that were previously only possible through surgery.

About the BodyTite System

The BodyTite system generates a controlled and uniform distribution of heat through various handheld devices. By concentrating energy on both the inner and outer layers of the skin, the BodyTite system can melt fat deposits as it tightens and contours the dermis (the layer of living tissue below the epidermis, or outermost layer of skin). Our office uses both BodyTite and FaceTite™ handpieces to address multiple treatment areas. BodyTite can be used to address the thighs and abdomen, while FaceTite can contour more delicate areas such as the face, knees, breasts, lower arms, and inner thighs.

Reduced Fat and Improved Contours

By applying heat above and below the epidermis, this technology achieves fat reduction and tightening of the skin that can restore youthful definition.

Benefits of Treatment with RFAL

With this technology, patients can avoid extensive scars and downtime. Those who undergo BodyTite procedures often return to their regular activities after little to no recovery. Postprocedural symptoms are also greatly reduced as this treatment causes minimal swelling and discomfort.


Patients who may benefit from a BodyTite or FaceTite procedure include:

  • Those who have areas of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise
  • Those who have recently achieved substantial weight loss
  • Those with areas of sagging skin covering a small amount of fat tissue
  • Those with cellulite

Your Treatment Process

A procedure using the BodyTite system is typically performed under local anesthesia or light sedation. Once you are comfortable, Dr. Mes will make a small incision and insert the cannula, a thin tube that removes fat tissue. The cannula used in this procedure delivers heat energy, as well as small amounts of local anesthetic to help avoid pain during the procedure. Working together with the cannula, the handpiece delivers focused heat energy above the epidermis. The heat energy liquefies the fat tissue, which is then removed through the cannula using gentle suction.

Dr. Mes may recommend that you wear a compression garment after the procedure to help the skin conform to your refined contours. Most patients notice improvements to their appearance immediately after treatment. The final results typically become apparent after six to 12 weeks.
