WHAT IS BODYFX®?
BodyFx® is a new, FDA Approved, long lasting, non-invasive solution to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite and stubborn fat pockets. BodyFx® works to reshape and contour your body and provides a non-surgical and safe alternative to liposuction. BodyFx may also be used 1-3 months post liposuction to touch up those stubborn fatty deposits or any irregularities that liposuction may have created.
how does bodyfx® work?
BodyFx® uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radio-frequency, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure in order to distribute heat into targeted tissue and underlying fat cells. This process causes skin tissue to heat and contract. Once the targeted tissue reaches the optimal temperature a second energy pulse is delivered which is responsible for killing the fat cells (through a process called apoptosis). The heating effect stimulates collagen which helps to tighten skin while the secondary pulse decreases local fat deposits and improves the overall appearance of cellulite. It can be used all over the body to firm skin and reduce fat.
Benefits of BodyFX
- A.C.E. (Acquire. Control. Extend.) Technology to optimize maximal energy
- Pre-heating of tissue for sustained heating of fat cells for body reshaping
- Sophisticated tissue temperature and impedance monitoring achieves and maintains optimal treatment temperature end points
- Active temperature monitoring and control with cut-offs for unprecedented safety with reduced risk of thermal injury compared to some other devices
IS BODYFX RIGHT FOR ME?
Your clinician will help you determine which procedure is best for you. For some clients, a combination of two InMode radio-frequency devices, the BodyFX and Forma Plus, to treat cellulite may be necessary. The BodyFX attacks the fat cells to shrink, and kill them (through a process called apoptosis). The Forma Plus is then used to help tighten any skin around the area, to further reduce the appearance loose skin. These treatments can improve the appearance of both small and large areas.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?
Most individuals find the treatment comfortable. Patients may feel a warming sensation and gentle pulling during the treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT?
Right after the treatment patients will notice redness, warmth and mild swelling to the treated area which subsides after a few hours. Results improve with each consecutive treatment. It is recommended that 8 treatments are performed to each treatment area each week for 8 weeks.
