BodyFX is a revolutionary new non-invasive treatment that offers anyone who has considered liposuction a means of getting rid of cellulite and fat. BodyFX is the first and only technology that uses focused radio-frequency energy to target and eliminate fat cells while smoothing out the skin surface and improving skin tone and texture by targeting through skin to the dermal layer to stimulate collagen.
Our technicians, who are trained in the BodyFX technique of body contouring and shaping, will use a handheld device that combines radio frequency energy, deep tissue heating, and suction to target and eliminate fat cells and improve the appearance of cellulite. A thermal monitor is attached to the BodyFX instrument to ensure the right temperature is achieved for ideal exposure and results. The process eliminates fat cells and leaves the treated area with a more youthful firmer appearance.
BodyFX is most commonly used on areas where fat is likely to settle such as: the abdomen, the upper arms, the buttocks, the thighs, the upper back near the bra line, the back of the flanks, the inner knees, and the hips.
Patients will lie down while the technician uses the handheld device to glide over the treatment area for up to 30 minutes per treatment zone. Patients will feel a slight suctioning of the skin occurring during the procedure along with a heating sensation.
BodyFX is a completely non-invasive procedure, which means the skin is never broken and no surgery is required. Because of this, it’s considered a low risk procedure and there is no downtime post-treatment. Patients are able to return to their regular daily activities immediately after their treatment is complete.
Individual results will vary based on several factors including skin tone and condition prior to treatment. Multiple visits, scheduled weekly, are recommended to achieve optimal results; however, many patients will see results after a single visit. The skin may be slightly red and sensitive following the BodyFX treatment, but will subside within a day or two.
