What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a condition in which the skin has a dimpled, lumpy appearance. Its exact cause is unknown, but it appears to result from an interaction between the connective tissue in the dermatological layer that lies below the surface of the skin, and the layer of fat that is just below it.
90% of people have cellulite, regardless of age or weight. It affects men and women, although it is more common in females, due to the different distributions of fat, muscle, and connective tissue.. Cellulite forms from fat pockets under the skin, typically in the buttocks and thighs. It’s a combination of loose and damaged skin with fat pockets that can get swollen with fluid and toxins. These fat pockets can be large or small, but when they swell, it causes the dimpling and unevenness that is cellulite.
How BodyFX Works
BodyFX™ was developed due to the success of the Acquire, Control and Extend technology (A.C.E.). This method targets fat deep within the skin which provides consistent outcomes, with no areas under or over-treated.BodyFX™ uses a combination of radio-frequency energy that distributes heat to make the fatty tissues heat and contract to tighten it and shrink the underlying fat cells. This process tightens the skin and smoothes the cellulite dimpling.
The BodyFX™ machine combines the radio-frequency with a vacuum that suctions the skin, which helps stretch out the connective tissue fibers that create the dimples. BodyFX™ uses a combination of vacuum and radiofrequency energy to gently tighten the skin and fibrous attachments that result in cellulite. BodyFx™ also uses short bursts of high voltage energy to disrupt the wall of the fat cell resulting in their eventual permanent death.

Safe and Pain-Free
The BodyFX™ procedure is completely non-invasive; there are NO incisions needed! It uses radio-frequency energy that produces pulses and heat. During the process, your provider will constantly monitor your body temperature to ensure that the proper amount of heat is being applied to the skin.
BodyFX has been approved by the FDA for improving cellulite, The procedure BodyFX™ is a “lunchtime” procedure that helps give you smoother-looking skin with zero downtime.
