TiteFX is a brand new non invasive treatment for fat removal, weight loss, skin smoothing and tightening that causes no pain, bruising, swelling or downtime. It targets fatty tissue and helps to reshape and contour your body. Ideal for smaller pockets of fat that exercise alone won’t shift. It is designed to permanently destroy fat cells by causing thermal damage to the fat layer destroying the fat cells that the body disposes of naturally.
How it works:
The TiteFX is a triple action treatment:
- Radio frequency heating
- Vacuum Massage
- High Voltage Pulse (HVP)
The Tite FX™ applicator has a suction cavity on the undersurface of the hand piece with RF electrodes on each side. The hand piece applies suction pressure to the soft tissue, drawing the skin and subcutaneous tissue into the cavity. Bipolar RF is passed between the two electrodes and through the adipose (fat) tissue and the skin.
As the RF heats the tissue, the surface temperature rises. The Tite FX handpiece displays the measured skin surface temperature on the hand piece. When this reaches the required temperature that is established by the operator (the trigger temperature) the device will emit a train of High Voltage Pulses (HVP) directly into the adipose (fat) tissue. The TiteFX™ causes irreversible electroporation. (The process of creating pores in cell membranes under an internal electrical field, leading to the death of fat cells). This causes the fat cells to die and the adipose (fat) tissue deflates and loses volume thereby improving body contouring and dermal (skin) tightening aided by the RF energy.
Skin erythema (redness), mild oedema (swelling) and a heat sensation are typical following the treatment, and can last up to 6 hours.
The TiteFX™ procedure is suitable for mild to moderate fat reduction which is often seen in younger women and men and is also effective in improving milder grades of cellulite. Treatment is safe and effective for individuals of all skin colours. It is a good followup treatment after body contouring procedures such as SmartLipo and BodyJet.
The usual course is 6 weekly treatments.
The effects are permanent, but a top up treatment every two to four months will boost the results.
