Body Treatments


Body treatments at Dr. Bitter’s practice encompass overall beauty, health, and well-being. All of these treatments reverse or delay the signs of aging, from correcting hormone imbalances that cause hair loss and menopause symptoms, to improving the appearance of scars. Innovative options for fat loss also provide his patients with the healthy, slender body they desire. Dr. Bitter’s extensive expertise is what gives his patients a renewed sense of confidence with a healthy looking body and improved quality of life.

Benefits of Body Treatments


Anti-Aging

Anti-aging treatments are one of the major cornerstones of Dr. Bitter’s practice. Weight loss treatments, hormone replacement therapy, hair loss treatments, and scar removal are all non-invasive procedures that can delay or reverse the signs of aging. Countless men and women have re-discovered the beauty of their youth as a result of Dr. Bitter’s work.

Non-Surgical

All of Dr. Bitter’s body treatments are non-surgical or minimally invasive. Medication, injections, laser light therapy, and topical applications do not require anesthesia and result in little to no recovery time. If the patient has deep or severe scars or desires a more dramatic result with their procedure, recovery time may extend.

Confidence-Boosting

Body treatments that improve even the slightest imperfection can significantly boost a person’s confidence. Dr. Bitter’s patients find themselves standing taller and smiling brighter when they feel fully confident in their own skin.

Total Body Makeover

With his cutting-edge body treatment procedures, Dr. Bitter can give his patients a total body makeover. Scar treatment, hair loss treatment, weight loss treatment, and hormone replacement therapy can all provide the improvement that creates a totally revitalized appearance.

Body Treatment Choices


ProLipo PLUS

  • Melts unwanted fat and coagulates tissue, resulting in a tighter, slimmer body.
  • Any area of the body that has pockets of unwanted body fat can be improved. Popular areas are under the chin, abdomen, love handles, saddlebags, inner and outer thighs, bra roll, back, knees and ankles.
  • Heat from a laser melts unwanted fat and firms tissue resulting in a tighter, slimmer appearance.
  • ProLipo PLUS is a minimally invasive form of liposuction.

hCG-Assisted Weight Loss Program

  • Combines a low-calorie diet with pain-free, subcutaneous injections of hCG.
  • Enables rapid loss of unwanted body fat while retaining muscle mass and necessary structural fat.
  • A low-calorie diet alone can lead to loss of important structural fat (around vital organs and on the feet and hands) and muscle mass.
  • hCG selectively targets the unwanted fat without the side-effects of a low-calorie diet, e.g., fatigue, hunger, and cravings.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

  • Treats menopause symptoms, perimenopause, and postmenopause.
  • Dr. Bitter uses Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) because the solution is molecularly identical to the hormones produced in the body.
  • Unlike steroids and hormones taken from animals, bio-identical hormones are metabolized, stored, and converted into other hormones naturally.
  • While synthetic hormones are often quite strong and produce side effects, any side effects with natural hormone replacement therapy are very subtle.

Hair Loss Treatments

  • Non-invasive treatments can be used for men or women to combat hair loss and male pattern baldness.
  • Treatment options include Finasteride (Proscar/Propecia) or Minoxidil (loniten).
  • Propecia was approved in 1997 by the FDA to treat male pattern baldness. It is the first drug in history to produce noticeable improvement in the vast majority of men who use it.
  • Minoxidil was the first FDA-approved drug to treat hair loss. It has been clinically proven to slow the progression of hair loss and regrow hair. Since Minoxidil does not affect the hormonal process of hair loss, its effectiveness is sometimes only temporary.

Scar Treatments

  • Dr. Bitter can improve the appearance of virtually any type of scar, including acne scars, scars caused by surgical incisions or injuries, keloids or hypertrophic scars, sensitive scars, and deep scars.
  • Treatment options vary depending on the severity of the scar.
  • Best results are seen when treatment is performed soon after the injury, but even scars that are years old can be significantly improved.
  • Dr. Bitter has pioneered the use of BBL™ BroadBand Light laser therapy for the treatment of scars and has treated over 30,000 scar removal patients with BBL™ because of its unparalleled results.

FAQs


  • Q. How much do body treatments cost?

    A. The cost for any body treatment will depend greatly on the severity of the problem treated. For example, scars may require topical treatment, laser treatment, or surgical treatment, which all vary in cost. During a consultation with Dr. Bitter, your needs and desires will be assessed, and you will be given an accurate cost estimate for your procedure(s) of choice.

  • Q. How long is recovery time with body treatments?

    A. With most body treatment procedures, recovery time is either non-existent or lasts just a few days. If any incisions are required (like they may be with deep scar treatment) recovery time may be a little longer as the swelling can take time to subside.

  • Q. Are there any risks involved with body treatments?

    A. The effectiveness of some of these treatments depends on many factors and will vary among patients, which makes experiencing dramatic results a risk. The vast majority of patients do see some degree of improvement with whichever procedure they have chosen, from improvement in the appearance of scars, to the loss of fat in a particular area of the body.

  • Q. Can body treatment procedures be combined?

    A. Certain body treatment procedures can be combined to lessen the amount of visits to Dr. Bitter’s office and potentially lower the overall cost. Dr. Bitter can review these options with you during your consultation.

  • Q. Are results immediate?

    A. Results with many body treatment procedures, such as hair loss treatment and weight loss treatment continue to improve over several weeks, with final results manifesting after a few months. Results after laser treatment for scars can be seen a few hours after treatment, with continued improvement leading up to the final result after a few weeks.
