With all of the different devices out there, you may be wondering, why BodyFX? BodyFX is the first and only non-invasive body contouring technology proven to both permanently kill adipose tissue and contract the skin. BodyFX addresses problematic fatty tissue in large body areas such as the abs, flanks or love handles, thighs, back and much more. It works by using radio-frequency energy and negative pressure which leads to killing fat and tightening the skin. If you have unwanted pockets of fat, cellulite or just wish you tighten skin, this device can achieve your goals.

BodyFx Q & A

 

BODYfx

WHAT IS BODYFX?

BodyFX is a new, long lasting, non-invasive solution to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite. BodyFX will reshape your body to provide a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. BodyFX is the perfect solution to get rid of your mummy tummy or muffin top, and improve your general body contour.

HOW DOES BODYFX WORK?

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 shaping results.

HOW SAFE IS THE TREATMENT?

A series of radio-frequency 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.

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.

WHAT KIND OF POST PROCEDURE CARE IS REQUIRED?

There is absolutely no downtime for BodyFX. It can be a lunch time procedure. Patients will notice redness and warmth in the treated area which will subside after a few hours. This warmth is equivalent to the sensation felt after a deep tissue massage and will not prevent anyone from their regular activities.
