BodyFX is a new, long lasting, non-invasive solution to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite leading to improvements in your body contour. BodyFX will help reshape your body to provide a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Dr. Brian Joseph and his staff at Park Avenue Plastic Surgery and Spa are happy to consult with you to determine if you are a good candidate for this break-through technology.
BodyFX is a perfect solution to get rid of your mummy tummy or muffin top. BodyFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radio-frequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure. The radio-frequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide beautiful body contouring results. Patients typically see a 15 to 20% improvement in fat reduction and cellulite improvement.
During treatment you can expect a warming of your skin and gentle pulling sensation as the radio-frequency and vacuum work to smooth out unwanted pockets of fat. Afterwards patients may notice redness and warmth in the treated areas which will subside after a few hours. There is no downtime or need to be out of work. The warmth is equivalent to the sensation felt after a deep tissue massage, and will not prevent one from their normal activities. Typically, patients will undergo 6-8 treatment sessions which last about an hour each. Results of fat reduction, skin tightening and cellulite improvement will continue for up to 8 weeks after your last treatment. Additional treatments can be done as there are no side effects or limit on the number of treatments that can be done.
