Body Contouring and Cellulite Treatment
For those times when being diligent with diet and exercise just doesn’t seem to be getting you to your desired goal, you may want to consider, BodyFX.
What is BodyFX?
BodyFX (formerly known as TiteFX) is a safe, non-invasive alternative to liposuction that’s clinically proven, with long lasting results for an improved smoother, firmer body contour.BodyFX is the newest, most innovative non-invasive body shaping, body contouring and cellulite treatment available! The BodyFX body contouring procedure provides the next generation of non-invasive lipolysis. It is a perfect solution to get rid of your mummy tummy or muffin top, improve the appearance of cellulite and reduce dimpled skin. It’s ideal for small areas of fat that diet and exercise won’t get rid of.
How does BodyFX work?
BodyFX is a triple action treatment that synergistically uses the combination of radiofrequency (RF) energy with deep tissue heating, along with suction and high energy pulses to precisely target, vaporize and thus destroy unwanted fat cells, all the while tightening your skin and improving the appearance of cellulite.
What areas can be treated?
BodyFX may be used to treat:
- Love handles
- Lower Back
- Upper Back
Each area typically takes 30 minutes to treat.
Is it Safe?
It is very safe. The targeted radiofrequency energy allows for precise treatment of patient’s problem areas while your skin temperature is monitored at all times with ongoing accurate feedback and cut-off controls. This allows for uniform treatment to all targeted areas and maximum safety and comfort during the procedure.
Does it hurt?
There is minimal to no discomfort. Most patients find BodyFX comfortable. During treatment you can expect a warming of your skin and a gentle pulling vacuum sensation is felt on the treatment area. Upon reaching the ideal temperature during treatment, a high energy pulse is released and felt as a strong tap on the skin.
How soon will I see results?
You will typically see immediate results. However, to achieve the best results, a patient will typically require several sessions, usually performed on a weekly basis for 8 weeks.
Are the results permanent?
Yes. The effects are permanent, but a top up treatment every two to four months will boost the results.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects typically include skin erythema (redness), mild edema (swelling) and heat sensation (warmth) which can last up to 6 hours. This warmth is equivalent to the sensation felt after a deep tissue massage.
How much Downtime?
The BodyFX is a short, 30-60 minute outpatient procedure (walk-in and walk-out). There is absolutely no downtime required. It can be a lunchtime procedure. Women are able to go back to work or go home immediately after the BodyFX procedure is complete.
Am I a candidate?
BodyFX is safe and effective for individuals of all skin color. To determine if you are a candidate, Dr. ChinQuee will meet with you in consultation, review your medical history, do a physical examination, review areas of concern and your desired results.
