Considering a Cellulite Treatment – Check Out BodyFx™

 In Aesthetics, Blog, Body Contouring

Cellulite is one of those annoying cosmetic conditions that many of us will deal with at some point in our lives, especially if you’re a woman. Cellulite affects 90% of women, regardless of their shape, size, and overall health. This leaves many wondering if there is anything can be done to reduce the appearance of cellulite. A cellulite treatment such as BodyFx™, in addition to some simple changes to your everyday diet and exercise routine, can effectively reduce the appearance of cellulite.

What is BodyFx™?

BodyFx™ isn’t just a cellulite treatment. It is a non-invasive, FDA approved treatment system that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and remove fat as well as reduce the appearance of cellulite. BodyFX™ combines vacuum and radiofrequency energy to gently tighten the skin and fibrous attachments that result in cellulite. It also delivers short bursts of high voltage energy that disrupts the fat cell walls and causes them to die off.

What to Expect

Performed as a simple outpatient procedure, BodyFX™ treatments are not painful and require no anesthesia. Most patients report being completely comfortable during treatment. BodyFx™ works gradually to reduce fat and tighten skin with no downtime. It is most effective in treating stubborn areas of fat or cellulite by tightening the overlying skin.

Each treatment lasts about thirty minutes and typically, six to eight weekly treatments are required for maximum results.  In addition to fat reduction equal to one dress or pants size, most patients improved skin tone and tightening.

The BodyFX™ Candidate

The ideal candidates for BodyFX™ are those who want to reduce stubborn areas of excess body fat without undergoing traditional liposuction. Potential treatment areas include the upper arms, back, and bra line area, flanks, hips, upper and lower abdomen, outer and inner thigh and inner knee.  

BodyFX™ treatments provide a permanent, noticeable and modest reduction in fat as well as an effective cellulite treatment. It also addresses slightly loose skin over the area of unwanted excess fat, making it the only body contouring system that simultaneously tightens skin and reduces localized fat.

There are those who should refrain from undergoing BodyFX™ treatments. This includes pregnant women or individuals with a pacemaker. Treatments should also not be administered to areas where there is active cancer, inflammatory lesions or infections.

Enhancing BodyFX™ Results

It’s no secret that a healthy diet and regular exercise help reduce unwanted fat but they can also help reduce the appearance of cellulite and complement BodyFX™ treatments. Cellulite occurs when connective fibers underneath the skin become weak or lose their elasticity, but stretching and strengthening those areas with regular exercise, especially strength training, can help make cellulite less noticeable.

Your diet can also have an impact on the appearance of cellulite. Eating a well-balanced, plant-rich diet can reduce inflammation throughout your body and help you maintain a healthy weight, both of which can reduce the appearance of cellulite. It is also important to stay hydrated. Drinking lots of water and eating foods with high water content will keep your connective tissue strong and supple. Include more cucumbers, radishes, tomatoes, and bell peppers in your diet.  Each of these is more than 90 percent water.
