We all have insecurities. For some of us, it’s our smile. For others, it’s our skin. But one of the most common complaints people have about themselves is stubborn pockets of fat. At AURAE MD in La Jolla, CA, Dr. Margo Aura Emami is dedicated to helping each of her clients look and feel their best. To help you improve your self-confidence, she proudly offers body contouring with BodyFX. Let’s look at how this revolutionary device can help you attain your best shape ever.
What Is BodyFX?
BodyFX is a state-of-the-art, long-lasting, non-invasive body contouring solution. Harnessing the power of radiofrequency energy and combined with deep tissue heating and gentle vacuum pressure, the BodyFX applicator evenly heats the skin and subcutaneous fat tissue beneath the skin. The heat promotes your body’s natural collagen production to tighten skin and cause excess adipose tissue (fat cells) to melt over time.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
How many treatments you will need to achieve your desired results depends on several factors. These include the volume of fat you’re trying to reduce and the size of the area or areas that need to be treated. During your initial consultation, Dr. Margo Aura Emani will review your aesthetic goals to give you an idea of what to expect regarding treatment.
How Can I Get the Best Results?
To achieve the best results, you may need a series of eight treatments performed within a four- to eight-week period. Post-menopausal clients find the greatest success by coming in for maintenance sessions a couple of times per year. This is because changes in hormone levels slow the metabolism and lead to weight gain.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
While some body contouring treatments, like CoolSculpting, can take up to an hour per treatment site, BodyFX is different. Treating each area requires only 15 to 30 minutes. Since three to four areas can be treated on the same day, you can expect your BodyFX treatment to be complete with 45 minutes to two hours.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
One of the biggest differences between BodyFX and CoolSculpting is the experience during treatment. With CoolSculpting, your provider will clamp the cooling applicator to your skin and leave you alone until the treatment is complete. The device can notify your aesthetic professional via a paging system if tit requires attention.
With BodyFX, you get a hands-on, physician-operated experience. This allows for immediate, one-on-one communication, flexibility and a higher level of safety and comfort. During your treatment, you and Dr. Margo Aura Emani are a team, and she can promptly address any concerns you have during your BodyFX treatment session.
Does Treatment Hurt?
Fat removal with BodyFX is extremely comfortable. Your treatment session will feel like a warm massage as the gentle pressure from the vacuum helps to break up the fat deposits in your trouble area.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
As with any other fat removal treatment, the results take a few weeks to make themselves apparent. This is because all these methods work by destroying the fat cells. Then, through a process called apoptosis, your body absorbs the dead fat cells and your lymphatic system processes them and excretes them from your body as waste.
You will start to see the results of treatment two to three weeks after your first session. However, the final results of your treatment will not be apparent until two to three months after your final treatment. Depending on how many treatment sessions you’ll need to treat an area of your body, it may be three to four months before you see your final results.
Are Results Permanent?
The body sculpting results of BodyFX are considered permanent. Once the heat from the radiofrequency energy destroys your fat cells, they are permanently removed from your body. You cannot grow new fat cells to take their place. Unfortunately, future weight gain may occur if you do not keep up with diet and exercise. Future weight gain may result in the remaining fat cells expanding or the development of new problem areas in other parts of the body.
Am I a Good Candidate for Body Contouring With BodyFX?
A good candidate for body contouring with BodyFX wants to reduce fat from an area of concern on their body. This may be the lower buttocks, upper arms, lower abdomen or somewhere else. The best candidate for BodyFX is concerned with the appearance of cellulite. BodyFX is the only body contouring treatment on the market proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
You’re at a Stable Weight
Ideally, you should have a six- to 12-month track record of maintaining your ideal weight. BodyFX uses gentle heat to tighten your skin. If you gain a drastic amount of weight in the future, your skin will stretch out to accommodate the volume of the excess fatty tissue.
If you go on to lose this extra weight, your skin may become lax. Since most of us can’t stand our sagging skin, you’ll need to come in for a skin tightening treatment or follow-up body sculpting treatment.
