BODY FX FAQs
What is BODYFX
BodyFX is a new, long lasting, non-invasive solution to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite, tighten skin and permanently destroy fat cells. BodyFX will reshape your body to provide a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. BodyFX is a perfect solution to get rid of your mummy tummy or muffin top, and improve your general body contour.
How Does BODYFX Work
BodyFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radio-frequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure. The radio-frequency 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. Patients describe it as a warm stone massage as compared to Coolsculpting which has a cold “frostbite” sensation that can last weeks after treatment.
How Safe Is The Treatment
A series of RF energy is delivered by a succession of pulses at 1 million cycles per second. While this may sound intense, it is very safe. To maximize comfort, the body’s temperature will be constantly monitored, with ongoing accurate feedback of the skin’s temperature. This thermal monitoring provides the utmost in temperature control.
Does It Hurt?
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.
How Many Sessions Are Required?
It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over an six 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
What Kind Of Post Procedure Care Process Is Required?
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.
