What Is BodyFX?
BodyFX by InMode is body-contouring and cellulite treatment. It uses radiofrequency energy and light vacuum suction to tighten the skin and melt fat cells.
Although the technology can be used for fat reduction anywhere on the body, the most commonly treated body areas are the tummy, hips, thighs, flanks (aka love handles), and back.
Body FX is non-invasive, safe, and has zero downtime.
All of these benefits are made possible thanks to the amazing power of radiofrequency energy that applies heat to the underlying layers of fat and skin. As a response to the heat, the tissues contract and collagen formation is triggered. The vacuum and controlled energy generated by the Body FX machine work together to provide beautiful and noticeable body reshaping results as fat cells are destroyed.
What Are the Benefits of Body FX?
As a safe, effective, and non-invasive alternative to liposuction, Body FX allows you to get great, long-lasting results WITHOUT the risks that surgery poses.
Body FX is safe to use on many areas of the body where there are stubborn fat deposits and cellulite, as well as dimpled and sagging skin. With this treatment, you will be able to restore a smoother, more youthful, and more supple skin appearance in addition to complete body reshaping.
Body FX is most commonly used on these areas of the body:
Inner and outer thighs
What Can I Expect?
Because the procedure is non-invasive, this does not require anesthesia.
The Body FX handpiece is placed upon the area to be treated.
The handpiece will gently vacuum the skin and apply heat evenly and gradually for several seconds.
The handpiece could be alternated between adjacent areas of the skin to be treated. Overall, the treatment can last from half an hour to about an hour - depending on the size of the area to be treated.
When Will I See Results From Body FX?
As you go through the sessions, you will notice gradual improvements to your skin’s firmness and body shape. Dramatic results can be typically seen after a full treatment series consisting of six sessions. These treatment sessions can be spaced one week apart, or as recommended during your free initial consultation.
How Long Do Results Last?
Body FX results are actually permanent. The synergy of radiofrequency heat and vacuum suction allows for the permanent destruction of fat cells. However, a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and exercise is still advised. Any remaining fat cells can still expand in size, taking the space of those that have been treated (destroyed). This is true for virtually all kinds of fat reduction treatments.
What is the Downtime for Body FX?
As this procedure is non-invasive, there is no downtime associated with it. However, you may experience the common side effects of swelling, redness, and itching right after your procedure. These will ultimately subside in just a few days on their own.
