Body FX uses the first and only non-invasive body contouring technology. Body FX is designed to both permanently kill adipose tissue and contract the skin. It is the only device of its kind to be proven in peer-reviewed and published human studies. Body FX not only reduces fat and cellulite; it also remodels and tightens the skin.
Body FX is a type of cellulite treatment. It addresses problematic fatty tissue in larger areas of the body, such as the abdomen, back, love handles, and thighs. Body FX is a non-invasive body contouring procedure. We use clinically proven methods, such as radio-frequency energy and negative pressure. This is applied to the skin and underlying fat.
Body FX is for anyone who is looking for non-invasive body contouring, and/or fat and cellulite reduction. It is a non-surgical alternative for those looking to avoid liposuction, or to be used in conjunction with liposuction. Ongoing clinical studies on Body FX indicate that there have been zero non-responders to the treatment. Body FX is the perfect cellulite treatment with anyone with unwanted pockets of fat. Patients have seen improvement after undergoing a Body FX treatment.
Yes! The Body FX technology self-monitors the skin to optimize peak energy safely. This allows the device to maintain optimal temperature endpoint to prevent atrophic damage. There is virtually no risk of thermal injury due to the Body FX self-monitoring controls.
Since Body FX is a non-invasive body contouring procedure, it is not painful at all. It is even considered to be relaxing for most people who undergo treatment. During your treatment, you will feel a warming of your skin and a gentle pulling sensation. The feeling is the radiofrequency and vacuum working to smooth out stubborn and unwanted pockets of fat and cellulite.
If you are only treating one area, you should be in and out within 30 minutes.
Our Body FX treatment focuses on a 6 x 6 area for ten continuous minutes of energy. Our device maintains a specific temperature to destroy fat cells. Each treatment on multiple areas, or larger than 6 x 6 inches, the following areas will take an additional 10 minutes.
Patients undergoing Body FX are recommended to undergo 6-12 sessions approximately one week apart until desired result is achieved.
Results are permanent and are maintained with a proper diet and exercise. Body FX does not eliminate the body’s ability to gain fat and/or cellulite. It only destroys the fat and cellulite that is already present due to genetics or lifestyle.
You can use the Body FX device on any areas that require reduction of fat and/or cellulite or body contouring. Body FX is most commonly used on the abdomen, hips, thighs, flanks (love handles), and back, but it is not limited to these areas.
There is no specific preparation for the Body FX treatment. It is not recommended to use over open wounds, bruises, or sunburnt skin, as this may make the treatment painful. It is recommended to drink plenty of water before and after your procedure to promote healing and healthy skin.
There is zero downtime. Body FX procedure has a short duration and a non-existent recovery period. You will notice a bit of redness and warmth in the area treated, which does away in only a few hours. This will not prevent you from your regular activities. Most people compare the warm feeling to the warm sensation you feel after a deep tissue massage.
You will first meet with your provider to express your areas of concern. Your provider will go over expected results and potential outcomes. Then, he/she will take before treatment photographs of your problem areas. These will be used to better assess changes in appearance after each completed session. You have a choice between getting treated with your clothes or change into a gown. After the procedure is finished, you can continue your planned activities.
You should be able to see results after your first treatment as far as reduction of fat and cellulite, while the skin tightening effects take more time to see. After the first few treatments, your skin’s surface should feel smoother and softer. The final result peaks at around 6 months.
