Non-invasive Body Contouring And Cellulite Treatment
Cellulite is one of the most common and stubborn body issues that people contend with on a daily basis. Excess cellulite can cause wrinkles and folds in the skin that prematurely age your appearance and can even lead to serious body image issues. This is an especially prevalent issue for young women in their 20s and middle-aged women. While exercise and maintaining a healthy diet are certainly important, they’re not always enough to keep the persistent cellulite and fat cells at bay. Sometimes, a little extra help is needed and that’s where BodyFX non-invasive cellulite treatment comes in.
Dr. Gantous at Toronto Facial Plastic Surgery is proud to offer this innovative life-changing procedure.
What Is BodyFX Cellulite Treatment?
BodyFX is an innovative, non-invasive body contouring and fat-reducing treatment that helps get rid of stubborn cellulite throughout problem areas on the body. Through the use of heat, gentle pulses and a light suction sensation, this treatment actively melts away body fat internally for immediate noticeable results. Combined with a routine exercise and diet regimen, this non-invasive fat treatment can help shed cellulite and keep it off in the long-term.
How Does BodyFX Work?
BodyFX is essentially an external form of liposuction to melt away fat cells that uses a sophisticated combination of radio-frequency energy and vacuum suctioning. Mini-pulses of radio-frequency and heat are administered using a mechanical applicator that Dr. Gantous carefully maneuvers over the desired areas.
This is a completely safe U.S. FDA-approved outpatient procedure during which your body temperature will be carefully monitored at all times to prevent overheating, dehydration, and exhaustion.
What Is The Body FX Recovery Time?
The great thing about this type of non-invasive body contouring cellulite treatment is that unlike conventional liposuction, no recovery time is required. Depending on the amount of work to be done, the treatment is relatively quick and effective with no downtime. Regular activities such as exercising, stretching, and other forms of movement can be resumed immediately following the procedure.
Patients may notice slight redness and a warm sensation in the treated area, which should subside after a few hours. However no other side effects should occur during or following treatment.
Are BodyFX Treatment Results Permanent?
The longevity of the results depends on lifestyle and frequency of the treatment itself. As long as you work hard to maintain the results by engaging in a well-rounded exercise routine and eat a healthy diet, then you should be able to keep the weight off in the long term. Some patients may require multiple routine treatments, about once a week or as often as advised by Dr. Gantous, to help maintain longer lasting results.
BodyFX should be used as an aid for weight loss and not considered a permanent, standalone solution. Reverting back to poor eating habits and lack of exercise will result in weight gain.
What Are The Types Of Body Contouring Treatments Offered By BodyFX?
BodyFX is a well-rounded, non-invasive form of fat treatment that can be used to achieve a variety of desirable physical results, most notably the following:
BodyFX uses external applications to target and diminish sub-dermal fat cells using heat and radio-frequency technology for a slender, tighter and more toned appearance. It’s most commonly used on the upper thighs, stomach, arms, and anywhere else where excess fat cells and cellulite accumulate.
BodyFX is similar to getting a deep tissue massage. It actively stimulates fat cells to tone and tighten target areas of the body, diminishing the appearance of cellulite.
Post-treatment, skin in the affected area is noticeably softer, smoother and tighter, yielding a younger-looking and slimmer result that can make you feel great! With each session, you’ll increasingly notice the difference in the appearance of your skin.
What Are The Key Features And Benefits Of BodyFX?
One of the key features of the BodyFX contouring treatment is that it deliberately targets and eliminates fat cells and cellulite at their source, below the skin. It’s a completely non-invasive procedure that prioritizes and promotes patient safety, comfort and overall satisfaction with the results.
Another attractive attribute of this procedure is that it can be performed as an outpatient procedure and it’s quick and convenient. That means you don’t have to take a lot of time out of your life to get it done. Many patients even do it as a lunchtime procedure because there’s no downtime involved whatsoever. You can get it done in as little time as 15 to 20 minutes depending on how much work you want done during each session.
Since this is a totally painless non-surgical procedure, you won’t need to worry about topical, general, or local anesthesia and can resume all normal activities afterward. Multiple parts of the body can be treated within the same session.
