BodyFX™ is a body shaping and cellulite treatment that works to reduce fat in the abdomen, love handles, hips and other areas. Unlike surgical procedures such as liposuction, BodyFX also reduces cellulite while tightening skin and contouring your body.
How Does BodyFX Reduce Fat and Cellulite?
BodyFX combines radio-frequency (RF) energy, deep tissue heating and Negative Pressure Massage. During treatment, RF energy distributes heat to the targeted skin and fat at one million cycles per second. The Negative Pressure Massage then applies gentle vacuum pressure, allowing maximum depth. Deep tissue heating triggers collagen production, tightening the skin as a result.
The system is also equipped with thermal monitoring, which provides feedback of your skin’s temperature so the treatment remains comfortable. Most patients report feeling a warm, gentle pulling sensation as a result of the vacuum and RF working to smooth out unwanted fat.
There is no downtime associated with BodyFX, though you may experience warmth and redness for a few hours after treatment. The surface of your skin will be noticeably soft and smooth, and gradual improvements can be seen following the first few treatments. Weekly sessions are recommended over an eight-week period.
