BodyTite™ is a minimally invasive radiofrequency device for skin tightening and fat reduction. The BodyTite device heats the tissues from within the skin to reduce fat and tighten skin.

What is BodyTite?

At CLNQ Clinic in Cheshire & Manchester BodyTite is a minimally invasive radiofrequency body contouring device for skin tightening and fat reduction. The BodyTite™ has become a hugely popular treatment worldwide. It can be used for many areas of the body such as abdomen (tummy), chest, arms, thighs and legs. There are smaller probes that can used used for the face, jawlines, chin and eye areas such as the FaceTite and AccuTite™.

How does BodyTite work?

The Inmode BodyTite™ device uses a small fine probe that is passed underneath the skin using a small incision. This heats the tissues from within to cause shrinkage of fat and tightening of the skin. The machine is able to monitor and limit the temperature of the tissues and skin to ensure that it delivers a safe and effective amount of heat. With BodyTite Manchester & Cheshire patients can combine it with other procedures such as liposuction to improve the overall appearance of the procedure.

What are the risks of BodyTite?

At CLNQ in Manchester & Cheshire BodyTite is usually performed under local anaesthetic for small areas. The device has built-in safeguards to assure the highest safety levels. The probes constantly monitor the internal and external temperatures and cut off if the maximum set levels are reached. The potential risks and complications include:

Bruising, Swelling, Bleeding

It is normal to get some swelling after any treatment and this usually takes a few days to settle. Some patients may also experience bruising or bleeding which is can be related to medication being taken.  Some medicines such as aspirin and herbal supplements can increase your risk of bleeding and bruising. This procedure can cause prolonged swelling in some patients.


The heating can cause excessive redness of the skin and there can also be excessive swelling following the procedure.


The heating of the skin can potentially cause burns although the BodyTite™ device has a number of safety features that help reduce the risks of burns.

Nerve Injury

There is a potential for damage to sensory or motor nerves during any invasive procedure.  The nerve injury is often temporary although permanent injury can occur rarely.  It is normal to experience some numbness soon after the treatment.


Any surgical procedure will result in scarring.  The scar is permanent but in most people it will improve and fade with time.  In some patients, hypertrophic or keloid scarring may occur resulting in raised, red and lumpy scars.  The incision for the probe insertion with this procedure are usually very small.


Infections are uncommon following these procedures although they may occur.  Usually these would improve with use of oral antibiotics.

Contour Irregularities

There may be some contour irregularities following the procedure such as  or lumpiness.  This usually improves with time and we recommend lymphatic massage following the procedure to reduce risks of this.

Changes with Time or Weight

The results are usually seen early following the procedure but the skin tightening effects can take up to a year to be fully evident. There will be changes in the results if your weight changes and with time the skin becomes lax again.
