What is BodyFx™?
BodyFX™ is a non-invasive system that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten skin, remove fat and reduce the appearance of cellulite. BodyFX™ will help reshape your body to provide a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
How does it work?
BodyFX™ is a perfect solution to tighten and tone your tummy or lose your muffin top. BodyFX™ uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radio-frequency 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 beautiful body contouring results.
BodyFX™ also uses short bursts of high voltage energy to disrupt the wall of the fat cell resulting in their eventual death.
Is BodyFX™ FDA-Approved?
Yes. BodyFX™ is FDA approved and has been shown to result in the circumferential reduction of fat and a more toned body. Most patients lose about a cup of fat with an average treatment.
How many treatments are necessary?
On average, about 6 weekly treatments are required. Each treatment takes about 30 -45 minutes to complete.
What is the downtime?
There is no downtime with BodyFX™. Most patients find the treatment comfortable. BodyFX™ works gradually to reduce fat and tighten skin. It is best suited to treat stubborn areas of fat or cellulite with tightening of the overlying skin is also necessary.
What can I expect immediately after a treatment?
Afterward, patients may notice redness and warmth in the treated areas which will subside after a few hours. The warmth is equivalent to the sensation felt after a deep tissue massage, and will not prevent one from their normal activities.
