BodyFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radiofrequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure to target fat and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Common areas treated include the lower or upper abdomen, the hips, the outer thighs, the inner thighs, the bra line, the back of the flanks, the inner knees, and upper arms. The radiofrequency 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.
Most users find BodyFX comfortable. During treatment you can expect a warming of your skin and gentle pulling sensation as the radiofrequency and vacuum work to smooth out unwanted stubborn pockets of fat.
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. 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.
