BodyFX

APPOINTMENT DURATION: 60 MINUTES

Body FX is a non-surgical, radiofrequency technology that helps to improve the appearance of cellulite, smoothing dimpled skin, and restoring skin elasticity to stubborn areas.

What is BodyFX?

The BodyFX by InMode is an innovative device that utilises radiofrequency (RF) technology, negative pressure massage, and laser light technology to create the ultimate effective treatment for targeting fat and cellulite. This treatment is the superior solution to improving the appearance of cellulite, smoothing dimpled skin, and restoring skin elasticity. BodyFX is designed to treat large body areas, such as the abdomen, back (flanks), and thighs, which are common problem areas for fat and cellulite.

BodyFX is an ideal non-invasive solution to reducing the unsightly appearance of cellulite and sculpting a more defined body contour by eliminating stubborn fat and tightening the skin. BodyFX is a great alternative approach to liposuction for removing your mummy tummy or muffin top and improving the overall contours of your body without having to undergo invasive surgery. Our BodyFX treatment requires no downtime, and patients experience minimal discomfort. Treatments can target specific areas of concern to ensure maximum results. The treatments are quick, and results can be incredibly long-lasting, as unwanted fat cells are permanently destroyed.

BodyFX treatment uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities of radiofrequency energy, deep tissue heating, and suction coupled pressure to target stubborn fat cells and trigger new collagen production. The radiofrequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, contracting and heating the tissue to break down and destroy fat cells permanently. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses work synergistically to smooth and tighten the skin, providing beautiful body shaping results.

Cost of BodyFX at Aesthete Sunshine Coast

Costs are dependent on the area being treated. We always recommend that individuals book a consultation to discuss the treatment, their concerns, and desired outcomes. We can then provide you with a personalised treatment plan and a more precise estimate of costs based on the results you wish to see. Pricing starts at $350 per treatment, with package deals available.

Procedure

Before undergoing treatment, your clinician may ask you to stop taking anticoagulant medications if you currently take any for 7 – 14 days before your treatment to avoid bruising. The BodyFX device by InMode will be used after the site has been prepped for treatment. The device will first conduct non-surgical liposuction using heated negative pressure massage, gradually raising the skin’s temperature to around 42 degrees Celsius. A gentle suctioning force is felt as the skin is drawn towards the device. This allows the heat energy to be distributed evenly across the intended areas and reach deeper skin layers. Radiofrequency energy is then pulsed through these deep skin layers, destroying unwanted fat cells in the treated area. Patients have experienced up to 30% fat reduction and smoother, tighter skin with this innovative combination. BodyFX treatment sessions take only around 30 minutes, and with minimal side effects, this is a perfect lunchtime treatment.

Aftercare

It is imperative that you follow your aftercare instructions to ensure optimal healing and to achieve the best results following your treatment.

Patients will notice redness and warmth in the treated area, which should subside after a few hours. This warmth is equivalent to the sensation felt after a deep tissue massage and will not prevent you from participating in your regular activities. To ensure the best results and maximise your comfort, we do advise patients of the following:

  • Avoid hot water and direct heat exposure (tanning bed or sun) for two days post-treatment.
  • Avoid scrubbing and scratching the treated area.
  • Moisturise the skin.
  • Avoid using cool compresses to ease the warmth in treatment areas as the heat is still working to eliminate fat cells.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many sessions will I need?

To achieve optimal, lasting results, it is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over eight weeks. Gradual improvements in the treated areas will be seen following the first few treatments, with the skin’s surface feeling smoother and softer immediately.

Does it hurt?

Most patients find MiniFX and BodyFX treatments comfortable, equating the feeling to a relaxing hot stone massage. Patients will feel a gentle pulling sensation as the radiofrequency and suctioning work to smooth out and remove unwanted stubborn fat pockets, but patients do not find this uncomfortable.

Am I a suitable candidate for BodyFX?
If you seek minor to moderate improvements to areas where cellulite, sagging skin, and stubborn pockets of fat are an issue, you may be an ideal candidate for BodyFX because of its non-surgical liposuction properties. However, it is crucial to understand that this treatment is not a weight loss replacement that can thoroughly remove moderate to severe excess fat and is not designed to replace lifestyle management or improve your general health. BodyFX is a treatment designed to complement a patient’s healthy lifestyle by toning and slimming body areas that have not responded to regular exercise and a healthy diet.
Are the results of BodyFX permanent?
The treatment will permanently eliminate fat cells in the targeted area, but it cannot control or change how your body distributes fat cells with weight gain. Although some fat cells have been destroyed, the remaining fat cells in the treatment area can grow if patients experience weight gain. As for cellulite, there is no way to prevent its occurrence, but BodyFX treatments will stimulate collagen production for a few months post-treatment, ensuring smooth and tight skin during that time.
Risks and complications
No matter what treatment patients choose to undergo, whether medical or cosmetic, associated side effects and risks may occur, and patients should be made aware. Expected post-treatment side effects include erythema (skin redness) and purpura (slight rash of purple spots), but these are common responses and usually resolve within a few days. There may be bruising, and the treated area may feel tender. However, BodyFX treatments do not typically have significant risks or complications, unlike other cosmetic and surgical treatments, making them the best option for achieving spectacular results without the risk.
