Cellulite can be an unfortunate fact of life. It can appear on anyone, no matter how much they exercise and watch what they eat. Some of the things that can contribute to a build-up of cellulite include genetics, hormonal imbalances, aging, and smoking. A lack of exercise and poor diet can certainly be a factor, as well. Luckily, BodyFx can make your problem go away!
What is BodyFx?
This is a cellulite reduction treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to target fat cells. It is a minimally invasive, non-painful cellulite reduction treatment. This is a great alternative to liposuction for some people.
How Does BodyFx Work?
While your provider uses heat on your targeted areas, a vacuum-like tool is applied to the skin to allow for the electroporation pulse to hit the desired zone. Electroporation is a fancy word that means electricity will be used to briefly open the pores in your cell’s membranes. It is the heat from the pulses that will both destroy the fat cells and encourage skin tightening. Collagen is stimulated, which is both why your skin will tighten and why you heal so quickly.
When having these cellulite reduction treatments, you may be asked to not eat for two hours before or after your appointment. This will help to flush out the fat calories and make sure they do not settle somewhere else in your body. Be sure to drink plenty of water leading up to your treatment.
You and your provider may decide that this treatment is beneficial for several areas of the body. Some common ones include:
- Love Handles
- Upper Arms
How Many Treatments Will I Need
The amount of sessions you will need depends on the size of the area being treated. Almost everyone needs multiple sessions. Most commonly, patients need 6 to 8 treatments. They are generally spaced 1-2 weeks apart, with 11 days being the average.
Many patients see results after their very first treatment, particularly in fat and cellulite reduction. Each session will result in a further reduction of fat cells. You will see your peak results anywhere from 6 to 12 months in regards to your skin tightening.
