Cellfina Before and After

BodyFx/Contoura is an alternative to traditional liposuction. It is the newest form of fat reduction and tissue tightening available in the U.S and Canada. It is really a revolutionary product combining the proven power of radio-frequency energy, vacuum and electroporation (a fancy name describing the formation of holes in fat cell membranes causing cellular distruction). It is really this rare combination of effects that produces fat reduction as well as skin tightening. The future is here and BodyFx is available for those who wish to lose fat and tighten their skin.

For those of us who like to know how things work but not in such a scientific way it’s hard to understand, here is the summary of how BodyFx/Contoura works. The machine is a combination of many different successful technologies, including bi-polar radio-frequency and a combination of vacuum and HV electroporation pulses. The radio-frequency precisely delivers heat to the dermis and underlying fat to cause tissue heating, collagen formation and skin tightening. This is combined with vacuum energy and HV electroporation pulses that permanently destroy fat cells (adipocytes). It is this combination and permanent fat destruction and skin/tissue tightening that creates enhanced body contouring that is unique to this advanced treatment modality. Now we don’t have to be concerned if we remove the fat will my skin sag? Not with BodyFX/Contoura!

Of course, liposuction is a popular option but the new BodyFX/Contoura is also ranked in the gold standards when it comes to removal of fat cells for body contouring and Cellulite Reduction. However, not all patients need or want liposuction treatments as this effective but invasive treatment option has many risks and downtime. The quest for an alternative to liposuction has led us to UltraShape, Velashape, CoolSculpting and Liposonix. Although these modalities offer significant benefits, none of them combine fat reduction with tissue tightening. With these benefits, BodyFx/Contoura is really unique and stands alone as an excellent way to treat stubborn body fat areas with little to no pain or side effects.

BodyFx is the ultramodern way to safely and effectively remove unwanted fat and tighten skin at the same time. It is a walk-in and walk-out procedure with no downtime. Some redness can be seen immediately following treatment but subsides a day or two. If you are taking blood thinners bruising or a hickey can sometimes occur. Patients can resume their normal activities right after the treatments are performed. The treatment parameters that we set are individualized to treat selected areas and provide comfort for the patients. The duration of each treatment depends on the number of areas needing therapy. Generally speaking, each area can take up to 30 minutes but smaller areas need less time, typically 6-10 min per area.

The purpose of BodyFx is to deliver various forms of Radio Frequency energy to the skin and fat in order to have tissue tightening and fat reduction. As such, there is some heat as well as pulses of electricity delivered. The heat delivered feels like a warm sensation on the skin. The settings can be adjusted for individual comfort. There is also vacuum suction and the resulting feeling is that of pulling on the skin. When the desired skin temperature is reached, a pulse of electrical energy is delivered and it feels like a medium to strong tap on the skin. Each patient’s tolerance varies but we want to keep you as comfortable as possibly while delivering an effective treatment. No topical numbing is needed or required.

Although each patient’s results vary, most people need 6-9 treatments. The treatments can be done weekly or every other week. Fundamentally, the number of treatments needed depends on the needs of the patient as well as the degree of correction required. We deliver the energy to the skin and ask your tissue to make good use of it. We recommend plenty of water to assist the treatments success along with release of toxins by cardio or sauna sweat. As with everything, each person is different and the response depends on the way that your body processes and utilizes that energy.

BodyFx/Contoura is extremely versatile and can treat many different parts of the body to produce fat reduction and skin tightening. Many trouble zones we treat most include abdomen, arms, upper back, lower back, thighs as well as hips and waist, even under the chin. Generally speaking, we recommend that your most troubled areas be treated first. In this way, you can see benefits where it really counts and can continue treatments in other areas.

The versatility of BodyFx is tremendous as multiple body areas can be treated. The treatments can also be combined with other procedures such as FormaPlus, Fractora, as well as laser, IPL and topical treatment technologies. FormaPlus and Fractora are additional therapies that promote further skin contraction and enhance results. Lasers and IPL modalities can deal with issues like pigmentation (red or brown) as well as stretch marks and scars. Topical treatments can also enhance results by further promoting collagen production, skin firmness and texture. BodyFX/Contoura can be used following fat removal treatments like CoolSculpting to tighten the skin and increase collagen.

Treatments with BodyFx are very gentle. The energies are selected to provide the best combination of comfort and effectiveness. The ultramodern BodyFx/Contoura is a form of non-surgical body contouring and as such there must be energy delivered to the skin. However, it is common for patients to experience some skin dryness, redness as well as petechiae (small pinpoint red-purple marks) from the vacuum energy. These effects are transient, and are only present for a few hours to a few days or a week. BodyFx/Contoura is unique in design and is truly remarkable with built-in safety and effectiveness. Like all treatments that focus on fat reduction, it is important to also adhere to a healthy diet and engage in meaningful exercise. With heat based treatments it’s important to add extra moisture to the skin. It is time to take control of your body shape, cellulite reduction and skin tightening, BodyFx/Contoura is here to help.
