What It Treats

BodyFX improves body shape and the appearance of cellulite. Most often, BodyFX is used on the abdomen, hips, love handles and thighs.

The Procedure

BodyFX is non-invasive. It feels like a warming, pulling sensation. The RF energy heats the tissues and the vacuum pulses contour your body. We recommend eight weekly sessions for optimal results.

Laser Hair Removal With Diolaze

Diolaze™ uses a diode laser beam to target hair follicles at the root. The procedure removes unwanted hair and prevents future hair growth. It is a swift and efficient treatment with a substantial “footprint” to treat large areas.[1]

What It Treats

Diolaze may be used to permanently reduce hair growth on the face and body. 

The Procedure

Treatment with Diolaze is non-invasive, virtually painless and quite quick. Most patients need four to six treatments for the best results.

Recovery and Results

After a few sessions, patients will soon notice a significant reduction in hair growth. Eventually, the treated area(s) will be smooth and nearly hair-free.

Rejuvenate Your Skin With Forma 

Forma™ uses radiofrequency energy to improve skin elasticity by stimulating new collagen formation. Patients of all skin types who have wrinkles, fine lines or sun damage can use Forma for natural-looking results.[2]

What It Treats

Forma targets the deep dermal layers to improve skin elasticity all over the face and body. 

The Procedure

Forma employs a non-invasive approach to smooth and tighten the skin with precise technology. The nearly painless treatment comes with no downtime. We recommend patients undergo weekly treatment sessions for six weeks.

Recovery and Results

After their treatment, patients may have slight redness in the treated area for a few hours. No downtime will be required. After a few treatments, you will observe improvements in skin tone, elasticity and smoothness.

Youthful Skin With Forma Plus

Forma Plus employs a subdermal heating applicator to improve skin tone by stimulating collagen production. Patients of all skin types can have smoother and more youthful skin.

What It Treats

Forma Plus effectively treats skin laxity and evens out textural irregularities. Skin becomes smoother, tighter and more toned. Common treatment areas include the upper arms, thighs, abdomen and back.

The Procedure

Treatment with Forma Plus is non-invasive. It feels like being pampered by a hot stone massage. We recommend weekly treatment sessions for six to eight weeks to achieve the best results.

Recovery and Results

There is no downtime associated with Forma Plus treatments, only the possibility of slight redness in the treated area. This will subside within a few hours and will not affect your ability to return to normal activities. Schedule a series of treatments for optimum outcomes.

Smooth Away Wrinkles With Fractora

Look and feel younger with Fractora.™ The device uses a fractional laser beam to rejuvenate and resurface the skin. Its technology reduces wrinkles and slows the signs of aging. 

What It Treats

Fractora can treat areas in need of skin renewal. It is most often used on the face. The eyelids, forehead, cheeks, mouth and neck can all benefit from Fractora. Fractora also treats wrinkles, discoloration and acne scars.

The Procedure

Fractora is minimally invasive. It bridges the gap between fractional lasers and surgical procedures by remodeling tissue and collagen to improve skin appearance. Patients typically need between one and six treatment sessions to achieve their goals.

Recovery and Results

Patient downtime after a Fractora treatment is minimal. Makeup may be applied after one or two days. You may see small lesions after a few days and slight redness may persist for up to a week. Patients should moisturize the treated area and avoid sun exposure to protect their skin. Visible results are immediately apparent. Greater results will become more noticeable after two weeks. Your results will improve for up to three months after treatment.

Smooth Skin and an Even Tone With Lumecca

Lumecca™ uses powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to treat skin pigmentation and vascular lesions. With just one or two treatment sessions, Lumecca can improve age spots, sun damage, rosacea and freckles. Luemecca also rubs out red vascular lesions, spider veins and purple port-wine stains.

What It Treats

Lumecca can treat areas of skin discoloration all over the body. Some of the most commonly treated areas include the face, neck, hands, arms, legs and décolletage.

The Procedure

Lumecca provides a comfortable, quick and safe treatment. It will improve skin appearance, texture and tone. One to three sessions is all that may be needed to produce satisfying results.

Recovery and Results

After treatment with Lumecca, patients may have redness and a warm sensation in the treated area for about one hour. The treated pigmented spots may appear to darken for 24 to 48 hours, but they will then flake off over the following week. For vascular lesions, the vein will slowly disappear after a few days. Results can be seen in as soon as one or two days; they will improve over the next two weeks.

Body Contouring With BodyTite

Our BodyTite procedures are powered by RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis) technology. The device uses an insertion port to achieve surgery-like results. RFAL is a non-excisional procedure that helps the skin to contract so that the treated area appears tighter and more toned.[3]

What It Treats

BodyTite treats skin laxity, especially for those who have significant issues with skin elasticity.

The Procedure 

BodyTite sends an electrical current from to the tip of a cannula through the external electrode. Dr. Bitter will place it on the surface of your skin. He will focus the energy to contract the fibrous septa and catalyze fat coagulation.

Recovery and Results

With no scalpels or incisions, patients will have a quick and painless healing process. BodyTite causes the skin to contract so that it appears dramatically tighter and firmer. No surgery is necessary to produce surgery-like results.
