What is BodyFX?
BodyFX is the first and only non-invasive body contouring technology proven in peer reviewed and published human studies to both permanently kill adipose (fat) tissue and contract the skin.
BodyFX is a non-invasive technology that contours the body and reduces cellulite. Underlying fat is treated with radio-frequency causing the tissue to contract. The Body FX technology self-monitors the skin to safely optimise peak energy and allows the device to maintain optimal temperature end points to prevent atrophic damage. There is virtually no risk of thermal injury due to the Body FX self-monitoring controls.
Indications for BodyFX
BodyFX addresses problematic fatty tissue in larger body areas such as the abdomen, back (flanks), and thighs.
BodyFX works by using different clinically proven modalities including radio-frequency energy and negative pressure applied to the skin and underlying fat. Body FX is indicated for anyone who is looking for 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, and that anyone with unwanted pockets of fat or cellulite sees improvement after undergoing a Body FX treatment.
Body FX is not painful at all and 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 as you feel the radiofrequency and vacuum work to smooth out stubborn and unwanted pockets of fat and cellulite.
One Body FX treatment area is 6 x 6 inches in size and takes 10 minutes of continuous energy that maintains a certain temperature in order to destroy fat cells. If you have treatments on multiple areas, or an area that is larger than 6 x 6 inches, the subsequent areas will take an additional 10 minutes. If you are only treating one area, you should be in and out within 30 minutes.
If you are undergoing Body FX, you are recommended to undergo 6-12 sessions approximately one week apart until the desired result is achieved.
After the treatment
The whole procedure is non-invasive and requires no recovery time.
You can easily have the treatment during your lunch break and return to your daily activities immediately. Results are permanent and usually seen immediately, 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.
