What should I expect after my treatment?

Body FX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radiofrequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure. The radio-frequency energy distributes heat into targeted tissue and underlying fat causing the tissues to heat and contract. Once the target tissue reaches temperature a second energy pulse is delivered responsible for killing the fat cell. 


Results are seen after the first treatment for fat and cellulite while skin tightening effects take more time and reach peak at 6-12 months. Gradual improvements in the treatment area can be seen following the first few treatments with the skins surface feeling smoother and softer immediately.


The treatment area is a 6 x 6 inches with application of 10 minutes of continuous energy consistently maintaining a certain temperature that destroys fat cells. The heating effect stimulates collagen which helps to tighten skin while the secondary pulse improves cellulite appearance and targets localized fat deposits. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses work synergistically to provide beautiful body contouring results and a percent of fat reduction each treatment.


How long does the treatment last?

Body FX can be a permanent solution for weight loss when combined with a proper nutrition and exercise regiment. The best candidates for non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction program are realistic of the reduction that can be achieved and is committed to weight maintenance. A commitment to weight maintenance is critical for non-surgical liposuction patients to be successful in the fat reduction program.
