If the thought of soon-to-be bikini season is looming over your head, don’t fret! There’s a reason why celebrities and models all over the world like Amber Emery and the Kardashians are taking advantage of an incredibly effective and noninvasive treatment, boasting tighter looking skin and reduced cellulite. We’re talking about BodyFX, a body contouring treatment that doesn’t involve incisions or downtime. Sounds good, right? Let’s look at this noninvasive rejuvenating procedure in more detail!
Spring is here Toronto, which means it’s time to get our summer bodies back in tip top shape! For those leading reasonably healthy lifestyles, pesky areas holding cellulite and looser skin can prove impossible to get rid of without going under the knife. Fortunately, Elements Spa’s advanced BodyFX treatment helps patients of all skin types to address these areas safely and effectively to reduce the look of cellulite around patients’ thighs, legs, buttocks and other areas while using heat to tighten the skin.
This non-surgical body contouring treatment focuses on areas that have more excess fat. Board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Adibfar and his medically-trained staff begin the treatment with a small hand piece that utilizes heat, radio frequency and suction. The hand piece slowly and safely suctions targeted areas of the skin to get good distribution of energy. The gentle vacuum-like hand piece helps to suck up the skin to stretch out connective tissue fibres that create dimpling in the skin. The hand piece also safely reaches 43 degrees Celsius, concentrating on the fat cells deep within the skin while using radio frequency to ultimately melt the layer of fat cells for long-lasting fat layer reduction. The heat and radio frequency also shrink the cells while tightening the skin and stimulating the body to produce more collagen in that area, making the skin appear smoother and tighter over time.
Depending on the area being treated, treatments can last as little as 20 minutes. Because it is a noninvasive, compounding treatment, most patients are advised to complete a series of 6 sessions spaced weekly. Patients can then schedule maintenance sessions once every 3 months, then every 6 months. Immediately after treatment the targeted area may appear slightly flushed which will quickly subside, and results are visible only after the second or third session! After each session, patients are also asked to keep the treated areas hydrated while avoiding any extreme cold temperatures or compresses which would counteract the heat and hinder the treatment’s results.
Clients and patients of Elements Spa who love BodyFX come from all walks of life. It is a treatment that fits easily into any hectic schedule and is especially popular among moms working on getting their pre-pregnancy bodies back, models, celebrities, office professionals and athletes! For those reading who are tired of seeing cellulite when looking at their reflection, and desire more toned-looking skin without the downtime of having to interrupt their hectic work schedules or day-to-day family timetable, this quick, hugely popular and efficient treatment may just be the noninvasive procedure for you!
