A series of eight treatments. Each treatment takes approximately 30 minutes per area and treatments are performed on a weekly basis for eight weeks.
How is it BodyFX™ fat reduction and skin tightening performed?
BodyFX™ is a painless, non-surgical liposuction-like procedure that is performed in an medspa setting and requires no topical or local anesthesia. The BodyFX™ applicator is simply placed over the area of unwanted fat and cellulite and the treatment is initiated. The BodyFX™ applicator consists of gentle, painless suction-coupled radiofrequency (RF) energy that simultaneously tightens the skin and permanently reduces distended and unwanted fat cells under the skin. It takes approximately 20 minutes to treat an area of unwanted fat or cellulite and that area is generally the size of two hands. 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 the upper arms. Unwanted cellulitic areas that are treated effectively by the BodyFX™ include the back of the thighs, the buttocks, the anterior thighs and any other area of lumpy, bumpy irregular cottage cheese (cellulitic) skin. At the completion of the treatment, patients are able to return to full activities immediately and there is no down time or discomfort.
What kind of results can I expect following my BodyFX™ fat reduction treatment?
Most patients who undergo a BodyFX™ see improved skin tightening and tone, as well as between two and 5 centimeters of circumferential reduction. Recent studies show that, on average, each BodyFX™ patient will see permanent fat reduction of over 700 cc of of focal fat per area. (that’s equivalent to a small lipo case) In general, each treatment zone takes less than half an hour and after eight treatments, the average patient notices a decrease in one dress or pants size.
How long will the fat reduction and skin tightening results after BodyFX™?
The fat cells that BodyFX kills are permanently removed. The fat cells that are destroyed do not return. It is important, however, to maintain your weight following the BodyFX series so that the additional carbohydrates you consume do not go elsewhere and alter your contour.
