Non-surgical liposuction is one of the most requested plastic surgery procedures by men and women alike. While some modalities freeze the fat, the more advanced technologies are devices that use heat to kill fat cells and tighten skin. BodyFX is a new, long-lasting, non-invasive solution for reshaping the body, permanently destroying fat cells, stimulating new collagen, and reducing the unsightly appearance of cellulite. It is the perfect solution to get rid of excess fat in the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and flanks (love handles) without liposuction surgery or downtime.
Clinical studies show a 30% adipocyte (fat cell) apoptosis (cell death) at a 2.5 cm depth and new collagen synthesis (neocollagenesis) of 13.7% with BodyFX treatments. Research indicates a direct correlation between new collagen synthesis and skin tightening. BodyFX uses a combination of clinically proven modalities including radio-frequency (RF) energy, deep tissue heating and suction-coupled negative pressure. The radio-frequency energy distributes precise and optimal heating to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide beautiful body shaping results.
Our BodyFX packages include products from our medical grade skin care line, CORE, by Anton MD. CORE stands for Correct, Optimize, Renew and Exfoliate. BodyFX can also be used in combination with other treatment options like SculpSure, Fractora, Forma Plus and Lumecca for those seeking total, non-surgical, body rejuvenation.

Who is a Candidate?
Skin types 1-5 on the Fitzpatrick Scale who present with unwanted pockets of fat, cellulite, and droopy or excess skin. Before treatment you will meet with one of our skin care experts who will determine if BodyFX is the right treatment for you, or if you would be better served by more traditional surgeries. The ideal BodyFX candidate is one who is within ten pounds of his or her goal weight, eats healthfully, and exercises regularly. We offer a comprehensive nutritional program for those seeking a total metabolic shift.
What to Expect
Most patients find BodyFX comfortable. During treatment you can expect a warming of your skin and gentle pulling sensation as a series of RF energy is delivered by a succession of pulses at 1 million cycles per second. While this may sound intense, it is very safe as the radio frequency and vacuum work to smooth out unwanted stubborn pockets of fat. To maximize comfort, the body’s temperature will be constantly monitored, with ongoing accurate feedback of the skin’s temperature. This thermal monitoring provides the utmost in temperature control. To optimize treatment and reduce pain, patients are instructed to hydrate adequately before their appointment.
Downtime and Recovery
There is absolutely no downtime for BodyFX. It can be a lunchtime procedure. Patients will notice redness and warmth in the treated area, which will subside after a few hours. This warmth is equivalent to the sensation felt after a deep tissue massage and will not prevent anyone from regular activities.
Noticeable improvements appear after four to six treatments and will continue for up to three months after treatment is completed.
How long do results last
After optimal results are achieved, your new younger looking skin can stay that way for years to come. Of course, the aging process never stops, so to maintain the great results you receive we suggest a change in lifestyle and diet if necessary and the BodyFX Maintenance package. The proper sun protection also helps the body’s tissue to maintain its youthful appearance. We recommend a daily physical sunblock for people with active, outdoor lifestyles who are looking to maintain their youth.
