Melt away fat and vanish cellulite without surgery or liposuction? You read that right! Thanks to the latest advancements in laser and radio frequency technology, we’re now able to address nagging physical conditions easily, safely, without the need for surgery and just in time for bikini season. For patients leading generally healthy lifestyles—eating healthy balanced meals and engaging in physical exercise—and still finding that genetic traits like cellulite, dimpled skin and stubborn fat pockets just won’t budge, then Elements Spa’s BodyFX may be a great option to consider. Let’s get into more detail.
BodyFX is a revolutionary system that uses radio frequency and heat to effectively dissolve stubborn fat cells, tighten the skin and encourage collagen production. The radio frequency, along with bulk heating and suction, functions as a prescription to destroy fat cells and tighten skin in that particular area. A hand-piece is strategically placed over the treated area to suction the skin and cause damage to the fat cells resulting in permanent fat reduction. The device beeps with energy pulses to heat the skin to approximately 43 degrees Celsius and penetrate about an inch to an inch and a half deep into the skin to safely alter the fat cells’ state, leaving patients with a mild, tolerable heat sensation. The dead fat cells are then safely re-absorbed by the body. The heat and pulses not only kill fat cells, but also help tighten the skin for a more slimming contour while encouraging the skin’s natural collagen production in the treated area.
Essentially, any area of the body could be treated with BodyFX as long as the skin in the area provides suction for the handheld device. Most commonly treated areas are the abdominals, inner and outer thighs, legs, love handles, back, upper arms and even under the chin and on the neck. Patients also love this treatment because it addresses stubborn cellulite in areas of the body too persistent to be altered by any amount of physical exercise or healthy eating plan.
There are a long list of benefits for using BodyFX for toning, tightening and addressing unwanted fat deposits. Not only is it a noninvasive, nonsurgical option for patients, it also requires no downtime and can be performed during a patient’s lunch break, early in the morning or just after work depending on the area(s) treated. Sessions can last anywhere between 30-60 minutes depending on the area, and patients usually experience slight redness of the skin which typically dissipates 30 minutes after having treatment. Patients also report that the treatment itself is relatively painless and they are happy they don’t need any anesthesia or require any recovery time. Although it does not substitute for plastic surgery, BodyFX treatments also cost a fraction of the price of cosmetic plastic surgery.
Patients are typically advised to undergo a series of 6-8 treatments, with usually a week between each session. After that patients are able to come into the office monthly and then less frequently for maintenance. Although the results of this procedure are permanent, long lasting results are also dependent on patient upkeep, diet and lifestyle, and can be affected by significant weight gain.
Patients generally start to notice improvement after only a couple of BodyFX sessions. They witness fat reduction in the circumference of treated areas as well as improved skin condition and less apparent cellulite. Skin also appears firmer, younger and more toned.
If your weight and problem areas are leaving you feeling uncomfortable, or your diet and exercise regime simply aren’t able to target stubborn areas of fat and cellulite, then BodyFX may be an optimal choice!
