What is body FX?
BodyFX body contouring and shaping system uses radio frequencies to reduce your body’s circumference and get rid of mild cellulite. Treatment can be precisely targeted to specific areas of the skin to remove unwanted fat cells, with only minimal patient discomfort. It is an alternative to liposuction, BodyFX is a safe, non-invasive, body contouring treatment that utilizes Radio-Frequency (RF) energy and electroporation to permanently destroy adipocytes (fat cells) for the buttock, stomach, muffin top and thigh areas. BodyFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radiofrequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure. The radio-frequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide even body contouring results.
How many sessions are required?
It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over an eight-week period. Gradual improvements in the treatment area can be seen following the first few treatments – with the skin’s surface feeling smoother and softer immediately.
Further benefits include:
- Improved skin texture
- Firmer looking skin
- Improved appearance of cellulite
- Fat reduction in the area
How safe is the treatment?
A series of RF energy is delivered by a succession of pulses at 1 million cycles per second. While this may sound intense, it is very safe. To maximize comfort, the body’s temperature will be constantly monitored, with ongoing accurate feedback of the skin’s temperature. This thermal monitoring provides the utmost in temperature control.
Does it hurt?
Most users find BodyFX comfortable. During treatment you can expect a warming of your skin and gentle pulling sensation as the radio-frequency and vacuum work to smooth out unwanted stubborn pockets of fat.
There is absolutely no downtime for BodyFX. Patients will notice redness and warmth in the treated area which will subside after a few hours.
