Burn Fat Cells Effortlessly
Even patients who eat healthy and exercise diligently can have difficulty eliminating stubborn fat deposits. Now, a revolutionary FDA-approved treatment called BodyFX can reduce the appearance of fat and cellulite without the need for surgery. At our Gatineau, QC, cosmetic practice, Dr. Patricia Berbari and her team of nurses use BodyFX radio-frequency technology to target and burn fat cells permanently and without surgery.
How Does BodyFX Work?
BodyFX can deliver long-term enhancements to your body contour. This innovative technology eliminates the appearance of fat deposits in three ways:
- Radio frequency energy
- Deep tissue healing
- Suction coupled negative pressure
Essentially, the radio frequency energy sends heat to the skin and underlying fat cells. As a result, the tissues heat and then contract as they heal. Next, the controlled energy pulses and vacuum work together harmoniously to provide optimal body contouring results. The innovative technology used in BodyFX can precisely match and target thermal energy, which then eliminates fat tissue, leaving healthy skin cells intact.
BodyFX vs. Surgical Options
Compared to traditional body contouring procedures, BodyFX offers a number of advantages. For example, because BodyFX is a nonsurgical treatment, the cost is significantly lower than conventional methods. In addition, patients can enjoy an expedited recovery time.
It is important to note, however, that not all individuals will be good candidates for BodyFX. If you have more extensive aesthetic concerns, you may be better suited for traditional surgery, such as liposuction, tummy tuck, or other body contouring procedures. During a visit with Dr. Berbari, she can help you decide which treatment option will yield the most optimal results.
Potential Benefits of BodyFX
While the initial results will be apparent almost immediately following your appointment, the skin tightening effects will continue for several months. The effects usually reach their peak between six and 12 months. The result is softer, smoother, tighter skin. Best of all, the results of BodyFX can be permanent as long as patients maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.
What to Expect during Treatment
Patients undergoing BodyFX must avoid eating for two hours before and after their procedure and should drink plenty of water the day of their appointment. This will help flush away fat calories following the session.
To begin the process, the handheld device will be applied to the surface of the skin. There is little to no discomfort associated with this procedure and it can be completed in about 30 minutes at our office. Generally, patients experience warmth and a slight pulling sensation as the device works to smooth the skin and release the fat deposits.
Best of all, the results of BodyFX can be permanent as long as patients maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.
No recovery time is necessary and initial results are often noticeable almost immediately after treatment. Like many nonsurgical cosmetic options, multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired outcome.
