How does BodyFX™ non-invasive body contouring work?

At the Advanced Skin Care Clinic, we use BodyFX™ for non-invasive body contouring. Safe to use on all parts of the body with stubborn fat reserves, BodyFX™ melts fat cells and can provide a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

BodyFX™ uses radio frequency energy, deep tissue heating, and light vacuum pressure to distribute heat to the skin and underlying fat causing the tissue to heat and contract to tighten the skin and melt fat cells over time.

What areas can be treated with BodyFX™?

  • Arms
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Love Handles
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Any other areas requiring fat reduction
  • Any areas that contain cellulite

Our Edmonton BodyFX™ non-invasive body contouring treatments targeting fat, cellulite and skin tightening are available for both men and women for the following areas:

Does BodyFX™ hurt?

No, during treatment you will experience a warming of the skin combined with light suction, that is the similar to the sensation of a deep tissue massage.

How does BodyFX™ compare to CoolSculpting®?

  • CoolSculpting® offers, non-invasive, non-targeted fat reduction using cold based technology that cools the fat cells to just above freezing causing crystallization. No skin tightening capability so post fat loss result is often saggy skin. Treatment time of one hour per site being treated. Reported side effects range from mild bruising to paradoxical adipose hyperplasia, the development of new fat deposits instead of fat being melted away.
  • BodyFX™ offers, non-invasive, targeted fat reduction, body contouring and skin tightening treatment destroying fat cells via radio frequency and heat.  It is the only fat reduction procedure that tightens skin. Treatment time of 15-30 minutes per area. No reported side effects other than some redness and warmth in the treated area which will subside within a few hours.

How many BodyFX™ treatments will I need?

For best results you will need one treatment per week for eight weeks. A typical treatment is 15-30 minutes per treatment area. Up to four treatment areas can be done in one day. Full results will be seen 2-4 months after the procedure. Maintenance sessions are recommended 2-3 times annually post treatment to maintain optimal results.
