Body shaping and cellulite treatment
What is BodyFX?
BodyFX is a new, long lasting, non-invasive solution to reduce the unsightly
appearance of cellulite. 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 section coupled negative
pressure. The radio-frequency energy distributes heat to the skin and
underlying fat, causing the tissues to hear and contract. The vacuum and
controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide beautiful
body shaping results.
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 radio-frequency
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 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.
What kind of post procedure care is required?
There is absolutely no downtime for BodyFX. It can be a lunch time procedure.
Patients will notice redness and warmth in the area which will lessen
within a few hours.
