Do you feel like you’ve been trying to sculpt your dream body for years? Do you feel like you’ve tried every diet and exhausted all of your options besides fat removal surgery? If so, you may benefit from BodyFX treatments at Le Beau Visage Medical Spa in Frisco, TX. Today, we’re taking a closer look at how quickly this treatment works, how many sessions you may need, whether you qualify, and more.
How Long Does BodyFX Take To Work?
You can generally expect to see your ideal BodyFX results approximately two to four weeks after your final treatment session. However, in some cases, it can take six to 12 weeks after the final treatment session for your results to become apparent. If you are very anxious to see your ideal results as quickly as possible, there are steps you can take to see your final results noticeably faster.
For instance, you can speed up the fat removal process significantly by making sure you stay hydrated in the weeks following your session. Another effective step you can take to see your final fat removal results as quickly as possible is making sure you eat nutritiously. If you get your RDA of all vitamins and minerals, your lymphatic system will have plenty of fuel to use to flush out the dead fat cells.
How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need?
We can tell you how many treatment sessions you will need during your initial consultation. Generally, people need between four and eight treatment sessions spaced one week apart. However, we need to evaluate the severity of your cosmetic concerns before we can advise you on how many treatment sessions you may need.
How Effective Is This Treatment?
This treatment is incredibly effective. In fact, its efficacy has been tested thoroughly by third-party clinical researchers. The FDA reviewed the results of these tests and approved it for fat removal. Notably, the FDA also approved this non-invasive fat removal treatment for skin tightening.
How Long Will My Treatment Sessions Take?
As a general rule of thumb, you can expect your BodyFX treatments to take between half of an hour and a full hour. However, several factors affect how long your treatment sessions take. For instance, your sessions will take longer if you are treating several large treatment areas. If you are treating several small treatment areas, or you only need to treat one large area, your session won’t take as long.
Also, your treatment sessions will take longer the more excess fat you have in each treatment area. For a better idea of how long each treatment session will take, you must come in for an initial evaluation.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
To determine whether you are a good BodyFX candidate, you need to come in for an initial consultation. If you’re an adult, and you don’t suffer from obesity or other medical conditions, there is a good chance that you will qualify. However, we need to evaluate your areas of concern to ensure that this fat removal treatment will be effective for you.
We also need to review your health to ensure that you are currently healthy enough for this treatment to be safe for you. For instance, we need to ensure that you do not suffer from such health conditions as obesity, uncontrolled type II diabetes, or cancer. Also, we need to know whether you are pregnant or breastfeeding or have breastfed recently.
Who Doesn’t Qualify for This Treatment?
This fat removal treatment will not be considered appropriate for you if you are not confident that you can maintain your weight following your course of treatments. Even though this treatment removes a lot of excess fat cells from the areas of concern, it does not remove all of the fat cells in the areas. Therefore, if you gain fat once your course of treatment is over, you may need a follow-up session or two.
How Long Will My Results Last?
If you maintain a relatively healthy lifestyle after your treatment, there is a good chance that you will enjoy your new and improved contours for the rest of your life. It’s important to note that the fat removal results are permanent. You can expect with complete confidence that the fat cells eliminated during treatment will be gone forever.
However, you need to be diligent about your net calorie consumption once the course of your treatment is complete to ensure your ideal contours remain. It is also important to note that you do have some leeway when it comes to weight fluctuations. For instance, you don’t have to worry about muscle or water weight gain. You only have to worry about gaining a significant amount of fat.
How Much Fat Can I Gain After My Treatment?
It is generally advisable that you gain no more than 10 pounds of fat following your treatment. However, you should be aware that everyone starts to notice fat gain at different points in time. For instance, you may be able to gain 20 or 25 pounds of fat before you start to notice your improved contours changing. On the other hand, you may start to see your treated areas filling back in after only gaining five pounds of fat.
How Can I Maintain My Weight After Treatment?
One of the best things you can do to maintain your weight after treatment is to start your meal with at least one serving of fruits or vegetables. You may have heard the expression, “dropping a brick in your tank.” In days gone by, people would drop a brick into the tank of their toilet, so less water would be required to fill it. People use a similar technique to keep themselves full using fewer resources by filling up on fruits and vegetables quickly.
If you’re a volume eater, you’ll love filling up on low-calorie fruits and vegetables. You can eat large volumes of food without breaking your calorie budget. You can also help yourself maintain your post-treatment weight by making sure you eat plenty of protein, healthy fats, and low-GI carbs. Some people swear by high-protein diets. Others swear by high-fat diets. However, if you focus on eating lots of nutritious foods, you’ll probably maintain weight.
What Should I Avoid After Treatment?
After your course of treatments is complete, you should minimize your consumption of processed foods. Regardless of whether protein or fat is more filling to you, processed foods are not filling. They also tend to be calorically dense, and most processed foods contain little nutrients. Keep in mind, fortified cereals, pasta, and meal replacement bars might be high in calories but they’re not necessarily healthy.
It is ideal to get your vitamins and minerals from whole foods, like whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, in part, because the micronutrients in whole foods tend to be more bioavailable. In other words, it is easier for your body to absorb and use the vitamins and minerals in real foods. Also, processed foods tend to be high in sugar, spiking your blood glucose and making you feel hungrier faster.
How Can I Nip My Weight Gain in the Bud Quickly?
To nip fat gain in the bud quickly, take steps to ensure that you recognize fat gain in a timely manner. For example, you may want to measure certain regions of your body, like your neck, wrists, waist, hips, or thighs weekly or monthly. If there is a trend of measurement increases, there is a chance that you are gaining fat and need to reevaluate your diet.
Another way to ensure you are not putting on fat is to take pictures of yourself every week and compare them monthly. Sometimes, it can be hard to tell whether you are bloated or gaining fat, but sometimes it is obvious that you are storing excess fat in your treatment areas or other regions of your body. Finally, you can weigh yourself weekly and consider adjusting your diet if you are gaining weight consistently.
