What is BodyFX / MiniFX ?
BodyFX is a noninvasive body contouring procedure that helps you remove unwanted fat without having to go through the pain of surgery. Even if you diet and exercise, chances are you still have 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, and it can have amazing results. In addition to removing unwanted fat, the procedure can also improve the appearance of cellulite in treatment areas. And since you don’t need any recovery time, this can be a simple, convenient way to get the body you’ve always dreamed about.
BodyFX addresses problematic fatty tissue in larger body areas such as the abdomen, back (flanks), and thighs. BodyFX works by using different clinically proven modalities including radio-frequency energy and negative pressure applied to the skin and underlying fat.
MiniFX is a non-invasive contouring and cellulite technology that delivers a combination of clinically proven modalities, similar to the BodyFX, however, addresses problematic fatty tissue in smaller areas like the neck, arms, and knees.
Who are the best candidates for BodyFX / MiniFX ?
In general, BodyFX is useful 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. If you have questions about whether you qualify for BodyFX, call for a free consultation.
What is the recovery like?
Because procedures like liposuction are surgical, they come with a recovery time of a couple of weeks. But one of the wonderful things about BodyFX is that you have no recovery period at all. You could go get this procedure done on your lunch break and return to work immediately.
BodyFX does have some small side effects, but they are no worse than those you might see from a deep tissue massage. You may notice some minor redness and swelling at the treatment site, but that should fade. You may also be a little sore after the treatment, but that should go away within the first day or two at most.
How many treatments are needed?
Patients undergoing Body FX are recommended to undergo 6-12 sessions approximately one week apart until desired result is achieved.
