Cellulite is a harmless skin condition, but women hate it nonetheless. There is no shortage of creams and lotions on the market that promise to reduce the appearance of cellulite, only to disappoint the consumer with no real results. If you’re looking for a proven treatment to improve the appearance of the lumpy, dimpled flesh on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen, then Body FX cellulite treatment may be right for you. Read on to learn about this state-of-the-art treatment and how it works.
What is Body FX?
Body FX is FDA-cleared for body contouring and cellulite treatment. This non-invasive treatment combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with deep tissue heating and suction-coupled negative pressure. The RF energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, which causes the tissues to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulse and work together to contour your body. Skin temperature is monitored and controlled with a built-in cutoff feature, which ensures optimal safety and comfort during treatment.
What areas respond best to treatment?
The legs, abdomen, back and underarm respond best to Boy FX cellulite treatment.
Does treatment hurt?
As the RF energy and vacuum work together to smooth out your unwanted pockets of fat, you can expect to feel a warming of your skin and a gentle pulling sensation. You won’t need anesthesia for this outpatient treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
You will need a series of 6-8 treatments, each spaced out weekly, to achieve the results you desire.
What is recovery like?
There is no downtime for this treatment, which is why many patients consider it a “lunchtime treatment.” You can expect some initial redness in the treated area, but that will subside after a few hours.
Will I start seeing improvements right away?
You can see gradual improvements after the first few treatments as the skin feels smoother immediately.
