BodyFX cellulite treatment helps manage areas of unwanted, diet and exercise-resistant fat. These areas are a common concern for many patients.

BodyFX is a new, long-lasting, non-invasive solution to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite. Treatment will reshape your body to provide a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. This perfect solution will to get rid of your mummy tummy or muffin top and improve your general body contour.
BodyFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radio-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 beautiful body shaping results. Results are typically, a 40% fat cell reduction. Areas which typically achieve the greatest results include, the legs, abdomen, back fat, underarm. It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over a six to 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. A “normal” treatment area is the size of two hands where it takes ten to twenty minutes of treatment per focus area. If the patient has multiple areas where body contouring is wanted, multiple treatment areas can be focused on in one visit. There is absolutely no downtime for BodyFX. It can be a lunchtime 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.
