What is Body FX?
Body FX is the first and only non-invasive body contouring technology designed to both permanently kill adipose tissue and contract the skin. It is the only device of its kind to be proven in peer reviewed and published human studies. Body FX not only reduces fat and cellulite, it also remodels and tightens the skin, effectively contouring the body.
Is it safe?
Yes! The Body FX technology contains sophisticated tissue temperature and impedance monitoring that achieves and maintains optimal temperature points to prevent atrophic damage. The active temperature monitoring device has control cut-offs for unprecedented safety, virtually eliminating risk of thermal injury.
How does it work?
Body FX addresses problematic fatty tissue in larger areas of the body, such as the abdomen, back, love handles, and thighs. Body FX works by using different clinically proven modalities including radio-frequency energy and negative pressure applied to the skin and underlying fat. The Body FX technology self-monitors the skin to safely optimize peak energy and allows the device to maintain optimal temperature end points to prevent atrophic damage. There is virtually no risk of thermal injury due to the Body FX self-monitoring controls.
Who is a candidate for Body FX?
Body FX is indicated for anyone who is looking for body contouring, and/or fat and cellulite reduction. It is a non-surgical alternative for those looking to avoid liposuction, or to be used in conjunction with liposuction. Ongoing clinical studies on Body FX indicate that there have been zero non-responders to the treatment, and that anyone with unwanted pockets of fat or cellulite sees improvement after undergoing a Body FX treatment.
Is it painful?
Body FX is not painful at all and is even considered to be relaxing for most people who undergo treatment. During your treatment, you will feel a warming of your skin and a gentle pulling sensation as you feel the radiofrequency and vacuum work to smooth out stubborn and unwanted pockets of fat and cellulite.
How long does Body FX take?
One Body FX treatment area is 6 x 6 inches in size and takes 10 minutes of continuous energy that maintains a certain temperature in order to destroy fat cells. If you have treatments on multiple areas, or an area that is larger than 6 x 6 inches, the subsequent areas will take an additional 10 minutes. If you are only treating one area, you should be in and out within 30 minutes.
How many treatments of Body FX need to be performed?
Patients undergoing Body FX are recommended to undergo 6-12 sessions approximately one week apart until desired result is achieved.
How long do results last?
Results are permanent and are maintained with a proper diet and exercise. Body FX does not eliminate the body’s ability to gain fat and/or cellulite, it only destroys the fat and cellulite that is already present due to genetics or lifestyle.
What areas of the body can be treated with Body FX?
You can use the Body FX device on any areas that require reduction of fat and/or cellulite or body contouring. Body FX is most commonly used on the abdomen, hips, thighs, flanks (love handles), and back, but it is not limited to these areas.
What is the recovery from Body FX like?
There is zero downtime after a Body FX procedure. Body FX is another one of the treatments referred to as a “lunch-time procedure” because of its short duration and non-existent recovery period. You will notice a bit of redness and warmth in the area treated which does away in only a few hours. This will not prevent you from your regular activities. Most people compare the warm feeling to the warm sensation you feel after a deep tissue massage.
How much does Body FX cost?
The cost of Body FX is very individual and depends on many factors, such as the size of the areas to be treated and the number of sessions needed to achieve results. Your provider should be able to assess your problem areas and recommend the target size of the area(s) and the number of sessions you should attempt.

What do I need to do to prepare for Body FX treatment?
There is no specific preparation for the Body FX treatment. It is not recommended to use over open wounds, bruises, or sunburnt skin, as this may make the treatment painful. It is always recommended to drink plenty of water before and after your procedure to promote healing and healthy skin.
What should I expect at my appointment?
You will first meet with your provider to express your areas of concerns and go over expected results and potential outcomes. Your provider will take before treatment photographs of your problem areas (for office use only unless consent is given for other mediums) to better assess changes in appearance after each completed session. You will then change into a gown if the area you wish to have treated is under your clothing, and your provider will complete the treatment. After you are finished, you can change back into your clothes and continue your planned activities since there is zero downtime involved in Body FX treatments. Each area treated is 6 by 6 inches in size and takes 10 minutes.
When will I see results?
You should be able to see results after your first treatment as far as reduction of fat and cellulite, while the skin tightening effects take more time to see. After the first few treatments, your skin’s surface should feel smoother and softer. The final result peaks at around 6 months.
