Everyone wants to be proud of the shape and appearance of their body, but it can be hard to feel confident when stubborn fat, loose skin, and unwanted cellulite get in the way of your ideal body shape. Luckily, there are revolutionary non-invasive treatments that can help you contour your body so you can enjoy long-term results and feel confident about your overall appearance. At Le Beau Visage Medical Spa in Frisco, TX, we know that BodyFX is a good long-term solution to your body goals.
BodyFX is a unique radiofrequency treatment that combines thermal energy, gentle suction, and negative pressure to deliver powerful fat-melting and skin-tightening energy to the deep sub-dermal layers of the skin. This treatment works directly with the underlying tissues and layers of fat deposits beneath the skin. The innovative design of the treatment system helps target specific pockets of unwanted fat to break down fatty tissue. This treatment is ideal for those who want to subtly improve their body shape.
Is BodyFX Permanent?
The results of this non-invasive body contouring and skin tightening treatment are certainly long-lasting, but they aren’t technically considered permanent. A permanent treatment has results that will remain no matter what you do – but with this treatment, the results of your BodyFX treatment will only last for as long as you maintain them.
In other words, if there ever comes a point where you do not maintain your results, then you will ultimately end up back where you started. Additionally, if you used this treatment to reduce the appearance of cellulite or tighten skin, then you should know the natural aging process will eventually cause these concerns to appear again.
How Long Do Results Last?
The results of any fat reduction with this treatment should last for several years or for as long as you can prevent any new fat storage in your body. The results for treatments that tighten skin or reduce cellulite can also last for a year or longer depending on your biology and certain lifestyle factors.
The best way to enjoy long-lasting results is to maintain the results of your treatment. This means you should focus on maintaining a healthy weight with regular exercise and a balanced diet. Some patients find that toning exercises help keep cellulite and loose skin at bay, which makes it easier to enjoy long-lasting results.
What Should You Expect During Treatment?
The first part of your treatment will be attending a consultation appointment where we can get to know your primary aesthetic concerns. We will gather information about your general health and examine your areas of concern, such as areas of the body where you have unwanted fat, cellulite, or loose skin. We may ask about your diet, exercise regimen, and any medications and supplements you are taking.
Your treatment itself will be completed within 30 minutes. During your treatment, several applicators will be placed on your areas of concern for about 10 minutes, which means you can treat about three areas at a time; your appointment may be longer if you are treating larger areas or multiple areas at once. Many patients compare this treatment to a massage and find this treatment very relaxing.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
You will require several treatments to achieve your ideal body results. Most people will need anywhere from six to 12 treatment appointments spaced about one week apart to see optimal results from this treatment. You may need more or fewer treatments depending on the degree of unwanted fat, cellulite, or loose skin you are treating, as well as how many areas you want to treat.
We will recommend more or fewer treatments based on your progress. In general, we usually recommend at least eight treatments to get the best possible results from this treatment.
How Soon Will You See Results?
Most people will begin to see results after several treatments, usually within six to twelve weeks of your first appointment. Although each treatment will destroy significant amounts of unwanted fat, it will take some time for your body to get rid of this fat through normal metabolic processes. Some people who are treating mild concerns may see results as soon as six weeks; others may need at least three months to see drastic improvement.
It’s important to remember that the results of this treatment will appear gradually. Even after your round of treatments end, you will likely continue to see improvements in your appearance as your body gets rid of unwanted fat and produces more collagen to improve the appearance of your skin. Some people continue to see results after six months.
Can You Get Better or Faster Results?
Like any other body contouring treatment, your results will be better if you can give yourself a helping hand during your treatment. You may see faster or better results if you keep up with your regular exercise routine throughout your treatment. Continuing a healthy, balanced diet, staying active, and drinking enough water each day are the keys to getting the best results from this treatment – both in the short term and in the long term.
How Do I Know This Treatment Is Working?
If you’ve ever tried to lose a significant amount of weight, then you might know that the best way to track your progress is to monitor the way your clothing fits. Similarly, for body contouring treatments, one good way to judge the progress of your results is to check on the fit of your clothing. Although this treatment will not help you lose significant amounts of weight, the fat reduction from this treatment might mean you lose a pant or dress size.
You can also track the efficacy of this treatment by observing your skin. Areas of the body that are treated for cellulite or skin laxity will gradually tighten throughout this treatment. Some patients like to use reference photos to monitor their aesthetic improvements.
Where Can This Treatment Be Used?
This body contouring treatment is incredibly versatile and can be used on virtually any area of the body. This treatment is particularly helpful for areas of the body where stubborn fat likes to cling, including:
- Bra line
- Upper and underarms
- And more
During your consultation, please be sure to mention all the areas of your body where you would like to use this treatment. While this treatment is more effective for larger areas of the body, it’s possible that smaller areas, such as the chin or jawline, can be treated with smaller applicators.
Is BodyFX Better Than CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is considered a direct competitor of the BodyFX system. However, because each of these treatments utilizes different technology, it’s hard to say which treatment is most beneficial. However, if you want to do more than just destroy stubborn pockets of fat, then this radiofrequency system is likely a better choice for your aesthetic goals than CoolSculpting.
Is This Treatment Better Than Surgery?
Non-invasive body contouring treatments are relatively new. Several years ago, there were only two ways to improve the appearance of your body: traditional diet and exercise, and liposuction. Many patients prefer this treatment to plastic surgery due to the ease of the treatment and the quality of the results.
Although liposuction can remove a greater amount of unwanted fat, the fact of the matter is that liposuction can also leave behind bumpy or uneven results. With this radiofrequency treatment, you will not need to worry about the quality of your results because your results will be natural-looking.
Will You Need Recovery Time?
Unlike plastic surgery like liposuction, you will not need any recovery time after your treatment. This treatment is fast and very relaxing. After your appointment, you are encouraged to resume your normal daily activities, including work and exercise. The lack of recovery time is one of the biggest benefits of this treatment.
Who Are Good Candidates?
This non-surgical body contouring treatment is generally a good match for anyone who has mild to moderate aesthetic concerns like unwanted fat, cellulite, and loose skin. If you need to bridge the gap between what you can accomplish with traditional weight loss and your dream body, then this treatment is likely ideal for you. Candidates are assessed during the consultation appointment.
