BodyFX FAQ

What is BodyFX?

BodyFX is one of the top sought-out treatments by celebrity & those in the public light. This industry-leading, advanced procedure uses high-grade Radio Frequency (RF) to better contour your body, reduce cellulite, and tighten skin, all while being non-invasive with no downtime.

 

The power of RF heats the underlying layers of fat and skin, forcing the skin to contract and produce collagen. The additional vacuum suction, mixed with the RF work together to destroy unwanted fat cells, and tighten skin, resulting in a much more defined figure.

What are the benefits of BodyFX?

BodyFX is a safe, effective, and non-invasive alternative to liposuction, allowing you to get beautiful, long-lasting results without the risks that surgery can have.

Liposuction is a manual, surgical procedure that requires cutting into the skin, and subsequent movement of an invasive tool in the body, which poses the following threats:

  • Anesthesia complications

  • Damage to nearby internal bodily structures - blood vessels, nerves, lungs, muscles, and vital organs

  • Thrombosis

  • Pulmonary and cardiac complications

  • Infection

  • Asymmetries in body reshaping which will then require revision

  • Loose skin and worsening of cellulite

  • Persistent swelling

 

BodyFX can give you the results you have been looking for,  without the risks of liposuction surgery.

What is the downtime?

BodyFX is a non-invasive treatment, so there is no downtime associated with it. You may experience some temporary and common side effects, such as minor swelling, redness, and itching right after your procedure. These will ultimately subside within a few days, and shouldn't prevent you from continuing with your normal routine.

Is BodyFX safe?

BodyFX is considered as one of the safest (but still highly effective) alternatives to liposuction. You would be an excellent candidate for BodyFX if you are:

  • Healthy without any conditions that will delay or impair healing within the body

  • Committed to living a healthy lifestyle with maintainable fitness and nutrition - this will aid and prolong the results of BodyFX

  • Close to, or at your ideal body weight, and just have some stubborn areas/skin concerns you'd like addressed

Do I need to prepare for my treatment?

To maximize the benefits of this treatment, we recommend the following:

  • Come to the appointment with clean skin. Avoid applying anything topical (e.g. lotions, ointments.)

  • If you are taking any form of anticoagulant, talk to your physician about stopping this medication for 1-2 weeks before the treatment schedule. This will help you avoid bruising.

How quickly can I see the results?

Gradual, noticeable improvements to your skin’s firmness and body shape can be seen as you go through the sessions. Dramatic results can normally be seen after a full treatment series consisting of six (6) sessions. These treatment sessions are typically spaced one week apart, or as recommended during your free initial consultation. Looking to book a consultation? Click here!

How long do the results last?

BodyFX uses the synergy of RF heat and vacuum suction to permanently destroy fat cells, so the results are as long lasting as lifestyle and health are maintained. Any remaining fat cells can still expand in size, given an unhealthy lifestyle, which then take the space of those that have been treated (destroyed). This is true for all kinds of fat reduction treatments, even liposuction.

Does it hurt?

The only sensation that is felt is the vacuum suction and heat. Depending on personal thresholds and preferences, this may cause slight discomfort for some, but is typically tolerable, even for sensitive skin.

Is there any aftercare required?

It is normal to experience minor swelling, redness, and itching on the treated areas after the procedure, and will subside in a few days. We recommend to following to help recuperate even faster:

  • Moisturize the treated areas.

  • Avoid scratching or scrubbing the treated areas.

  • For the next 2 days after the treatment, avoid hot water and direct heat (e.g. prolonged sun exposure, tanning beds, etc.)
