During a BodyFX body contouring session, a combination of vacuum and radio waves gently tighten the skin and destroy fat. Short bursts of high-voltage energy are used to disrupt the walls of fat cells, eradicating them.
Both men and women commonly come in for treatment, and it is FDA approved.
Any area which has unwanted, stubborn and excess body fat can be treated, including the upper body (back, upper arms, breast, flanks, upper and lower abdomen) and lower body (hips, outer and inner thigh, inner knee).
One session usually takes about 30 minutes to complete. You may notice some redness and warmth in the treated area, but this will subside after a few hours. You can resume your normal day immediately after the session.
Usually you will need about 6 weekly sessions before optimal results are achieved.
Most people consider the use of BodyFX comfortable. The treatment gently warms your skin and pulls on it to remove unwanted, stubborn pockets of fat. The feeling is equivalent to a deep tissue massage.
Most patients lose about one cup of fat with an average treatment.
