BodyFX by InMode is by far our most popular treatment. Radio-frequency energy is used to permanently destroy fat cells and stimulate collagen at the same time, resulting in loss of bulk and tightening of overlying skin in one treatment session. This treatment can performedon the stomach, thighs, arms, glutes & back.
BodyFX is a noninvasive body contouring procedure that helps to remove unwanted fat without having to go through the pain of surgery. Even with diet and exercise, chances are that there will still be a few stubborn fat deposits that refuse to go away. But you may not want to deal with the discomfort and recovery period that come with liposuction.
BodyFX is noninvasive, will produce targeted results. In addition to removing unwanted fat, the procedure can also improve the appearance of cellulite in treatment areas. Since there is no need for any recovery time, this can be a simple, convenient way to get treatments in around a busy schedule.
BodyFX sends out waves of radio frequency at a specific setting into your body. This heats the tissues, including both fat and skin tissues, and causes them to contract. This forces the fat molecules to break down, destroying them and tightening the overlying skin at the same time.
In the weeks after your BodyFX procedure, your body will flush away the broken-down fat tissues. Your skin will continue tightening as those extra fat pads disappear. After six to twelve weeks, you’ll be able to see a noticeable difference in the areas that have been treated.
Although BodyFX does not require as long a recovery time as invasive options such as liposuction, it does have some small side effects. You may notice some transient redness and swelling at the treatment site, and you may also be a little sore after the treatment. This should go away within the first day or two at most.
During your BodyFX procedure, the technician will be present the whole time. She will use a small handheld device to treat the targeted area for fat removal. This handpiece will suction up small areas of skin for several seconds as the fatty tissue is heated. The handpiece will warm up the tissue to 41C-43C, which is the therapeutic temperature required to melt the fat.
Sessions last between half an hour and an hour, depending on how large of an area you’re contouring.
Typically we recommend that you come back for 8 sessions over a four to eight week period for best results.
In general, BodyFX is best for trimming off that last bit of stubborn fat you can’t manage to get rid of. This procedure is not designed for general weight loss, and if that’s your goal, sticking to a good diet and exercise is your best bet. By the time you go for BodyFX treatments, you should be in good health and at a stable weight.
This procedure is also not recommended for people who have implanted medical or electrical devices, including a pacemaker or an insulin pump. The radio frequency waves that this technique uses can interfere with these devices.
