Bodyfx is a non-invasive treatment for fat reduction, body contouring, skin tightening and reduces the appearance of cellulite simultaneously. BodyFx vacuum pressure and controlled energy targets sub-dermal fat and can provide a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
Bodyfx is offered in our Toronto Medi Spa.
BodyFX by InMode is an FDA-cleared body-contouring and cellulite treatment. It uses radiofrequency energy, deep-tissue heating, and light vacuum suction to tighten the skin and melt fat cells.
Although the technology can be used for fat reduction anywhere on the body, the most commonly treated body areas are the tummy, hips, thighs, flanks (aka love handles), and back.
The treatment permanently destroys fat cells, but you’ll need to exercise regularly and stick to a healthy diet to keep up your fat reduction results, since any remaining cells in the area can expand with weight gain.
Cellulite treatment results are usually temporary, so you may need annual follow-up treatments to maintain them.
Although both are effective noninvasive body-contouring solutions, BodyFX and CoolSculpting use very different technologies: BodyFX uses radiofrequency to melt fat cells, while CoolSculpting induces cell death via freezing. Both treatments kill fat cells, but only BodyFX also boosts collagen production, tightens skin, and reduces the appearance of cellulite.
For CoolSculpting, providers might recommend two hour long sessions, depending on the area being treated; BodyFX often requires six to eight 30-minute treatments.
CoolSculpting results in, on average, a 25% loss of fat in the treated area over four to six months, while BodyFX produces a 39.6% reduction, on average, after three months.
