BodyFX is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses radio-frequency to smooth the appearance of cellulite and melt fat cells slowly over time. The result is a slimmer, more youthful-looking appearance without loose, saggy skin. The BodyFX treatment uniquely offers not only fat reduction but is also an excellent treatment for skin tightening.
In this article, we’ll look at how BodyFX works compared to other body contouring treatments, what its benefits are, and determine whether you’re a good candidate.
How BodyFX Works
The BodyFX treatment uses radio-frequency technology to send heat to underlying layers of fat and skin. The heat contracts tissues and breaks down fat molecules to tighten the skin while triggering the formation of collagen.
During the procedure, the BodyFX hand piece applies heat gradually and evenly to each area being treated and gently vacuums the skin, melting away body fat internally. The treatment is non-invasive and does not require anesthesia.
Depending on the size of the area treated, the procedure typically lasts from 20 minutes to one hour. Since it takes time for your body to shed fat cells, it will be about three months before you’ll start to see a leaner, firmer shape. For several months the effects will continue to improve.
To maintain the results, you’ll need to get additional treatments at the clinic every three to four months for the first year. After that, the effects should last for about six months, providing you don’t gain weight.
Since the BodyFX treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive, there’s no risk of anesthesia complications or other health problems such as thrombosis or infection. The procedure is quick and comfortable and with no recovery or downtime required, you can continue your regular routine while you’re getting treatments.
BodyFX is an excellent body contouring treatment. It destroys fat cells, tightens the skin, and is especially effective at treating cellulite. It’s safe to use on all parts of the body where excess fat cells and cellulite accumulate, including the stomach, hips, buttocks, thighs, and arms.
How Does BodyFX Differ From Other Body Contouring Treatments?
For those wanting to reduce body fat, there are a number of options available. CoolSculpting cools the fat cells to bring about lipolysis, a process that causes these cells to break down over a period of two to four months. Although it’s non-invasive, CoolSculpting can sometimes cause mild bruising and swelling.
SculpSure uses a hands-free laser to reduce or eliminate fat without surgery or downtime. During the procedure, the SculpSure device wraps around you like a belt, while the laser gently heats fat cells and shrinks them.
Kybella uses the chemical deoxycholic acid to break down fat cells in targeted areas. This treatment is usually performed under local anesthesia. You may feel some discomfort after treatment, but downtime is minimal.
Who Makes a Good Candidate?
BodyFX is a body contouring treatment however, is not intended for general weight loss. It’s designed to trim and tighten your physique. Good candidates for this treatment need to be close to their ideal weight and in good overall health. Essentially, this means you lead and live a healthy lifestyle that includes proper nutrition and fitness.
BodyFX isn’t recommended if you have any medical conditions that could impair or delay healing, or if you have an implanted medical or electrical device that radio frequency waves could interfere with.
