WHAT IS BODYFX?
BodyFX is a long lasting, non-invasive solution to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite. BodyFX is the perfect solution to treat your mummy tummy or muffin top.
HOW DOES BODYFX WORK?
BodyFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radiofrequency energy, deep tissue heating, and a vacuum. The radiofrequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide beautiful body results.
HOW SAFE IS THE TREATMENT?
A series of radiofrequency 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 target stubborn pockets of fat.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE RECOMMENDED?
BodyFX treatments are customized and tailored to address your specific needs. 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 associated with BodyFX treatments. Treatments are quick and painless, and can be performed over lunch time. You 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.
