*Results may vary.

How Does BodyFx work?

BodyFx uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including ratio-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 contouring 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 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 no downtime with 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. Because treatments are so quick and convenient, some patients even combine them with other treatments at our office such as cryotherapy .
