Third Generation Body Contouring with Apoptosis (Fat Death), Contraction and Cellulite Improvements
What is BodyFx™?
BodyFx™ is a new type of non-invasive system that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten skin, remove fat and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
How does it work?
BodyFX™ uses a combination of vacuum and radiofrequency energy to gently tighten the skin and fibrous attachments that result in cellulite. BodyFx™ also uses short bursts of high voltage energy to disrupt the wall of the fat cell resulting in their eventual permanent death.
Is it FDA Approved?
Yes. BodyFx™ is FDA approved and has been shown to result in the circumferential reduction of fat and a more toned body. BodyFX™ is also effective on cellulite. Most patients lose about a cup of fat with an average treatment.
What is the Recovery Time?
There is no downtime with BodyFx™. Most patients find the treatment entirely comfortable. BodyFx™ works gradually to reduce fat and tighten skin. It is best suited to treat stubborn areas of fat or cellulite by tightening the overlying skin. On average, about 6-8 weekly treatments are required. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete.
Who is a candidate for the BodyFX™ fat reduction procedure?
The best candidates for BodyFX™ are patients who have unwanted stubborn areas of excess body fat, including the upper arms, back and bra line area, the flanks, the hips, the upper and lower abdomen, the outer and inner thigh and the inner knee. BodyFX™ treatments are best suited for individuals that want a permanent, noticeable and modest reduction in fat without undergoing traditional liposuction surgery. BodyFX™ also addresses slightly loose skin over the area of unwanted excess fat, as well as cellulite. BodyFX™ is one of the only body contouring devices that simultaneously tightens skin and reduces localized fat.
Is BodyFX™ fat reduction painful?
BodyFX™ treatments are not painful and are performed as an outpatient procedure, not requiring anesthesia. A series of six to eight treatments is recommended. Each treatment takes approximately 20-30 minutes and is performed on a weekly basis for six to eight weeks.
What kind of anesthetic is used for BodyFX™ non-surgical lipo and fat reduction treatments?
BodyFX™ is a non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction technology used on the surface of the skin and requires no topical anesthesia or local anesthesia. The treatment is well-tolerated and has relatively few contraindications.
What are the contraindications to BodyFX™ fat reduction treatments?
Contraindications of BodyFX™ treatments would include any individual who may be pregnant or who has a pacemaker that is required for their heart functioning. BodyFX™ treatments should also be avoided over any areas where there is active cancer, inflammatory lesions or infections.
How long is recovery the from the BodyFX™ fat reduction treatment?
Non-surgical liposuction fat reduction patients who undergo BodyFX™ treatments, will find the BodyFX™ procedure to be fast and effective. There is no recovery after the BodyFX™ treatment and after each session, a patient may return to normal activities immediately, including full exercise, full high-exertion exercise, stretching and any physical activity. There is only a modest degree of redness and swelling after each treatment. Skin tone, color, texture and temperature return to normal, usually within several hours.
What kind of results can I expect following my BodyFX™ fat reduction treatment?
Most patients who undergo a BodyFX™ treatment, see improved skin tightening and tone, in addition to permanent fat reduction. Recent studies show that, on average, each BodyFX™ patient will see permanent fat reduction noticeable in approximately one dress or pants size.
