About the Procedure

Last Updated: 07.06.2020

There are a number of noninvasive fat reduction methods available for patients who have stubborn fatty deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. Reducing fat stores can also make cellulite less apparent on the thighs and buttocks. BodyFX, like VelaSmooth and VelaShape, use radiofrequency energy to heat deep tissues and reduce fat cells. The BodyFX hand piece will be placed on the treatment area. The skin will be gently vacuumed into the hand piece for even heating of the tissue for several seconds and then alternate between adjacent treatment areas. The hand piece will gradually heat the tissue to 40-44° centigrade. Treatment sessions can last between 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the area. A series of sessions will be needed to see results, typically once a week for 6-12 weeks with upkeep treatments every 3-4 months to maintain results. Results tend to improve several months after the final treatment as it takes time for collagen production to complete as well as the lymphatic system to naturally eliminate destroyed fat cells.

The goal of a BodyFX treatment is to reduce stubborn fat deposits, improving the appearance of cellulite and overall body contours.

Ideal Candidate

Not Recommended For
