For many of us, having a svelte and slender physique is the ideal and most of us try hard to maintain a healthy eating plan and exercise regime in order to stay slim and fit. However, as we get older, stubborn pockets of fat can start to appear on areas such as the hips, thighs, buttocks and flanks. We may also start to notice the appearance of cellulite, which, though harmless, can be annoying. No matter how much we diet and exercise, sometimes it’s simply not enough to discourage those difficult to shift areas of fat. This is where Body FX from Inmode can help, a non-invasive body shaping, cellulite improving treatment, available here at Bank MediSpa in Hale, Cheshire.

What is BodyFX?


Body FX is a non-invasive body contouring procedure which uses clinically-proven technologies, such as radio-frequency energy and negative pressure to reduce subcutaneous fat and improve the appearance of cellulite. Body FX can address problematic fatty tissue in larger areas of the body, such as the stomach, back, love handles and thighs.

Am I suitable for BodyFX treatments at Bank MediSpa?

Before any treatment can commence here at Bank MediSpa in Hale, Cheshire, we will ask that you attend a no obligation consultation, so that we can assess your individual concerns and discuss which options are available to you. We will also check your medical history to ensure that there are no contraindications to prevent or restrict your Body FX treatment, if indeed this is the treatment we recommend. This treatment works best for patients who are not overly obese but experience pockets of stubborn fat in specific areas or are experiencing cellulite. Once both you and your practitioner are satisfied that Body FX will be both safe and effective for you to undergo, you can book your first treatment session.

What happens during a BodyFX treatment?

A BodyFX treatment is relatively quick to administer, at around 10 minutes for each six-by-six-inch treatment area. Before the treatment commences, make sure that you alert your practitioner about any open wounds, active infections, bruises, or sunburned areas of your skin, so they can avoid them. Your practitioner will then apply a handpiece which uses negative pressure suction to isolate the fatty tissue of the area to be treated. You will feel a warm sensation from the radiofrequency energy and a gentle pulling, similar to a deep tissue massage. For smaller areas, they may use a smaller handpiece; often called the MiniFX. Once the tissue in the treatment area is heated, the handpiece will deliver controlled energy pulses which kill the fat cells. Most patients find this feeling slightly uncomfortable but tolerable, but your practitioner will be checking your discomfort levels throughout the procedure and will control the intensity of the pulses accordingly.
There is no downtime with this procedure, though you can expect redness in the treated area for a day or so. Drinking plenty of water before and after your BodyFX treatment can help your body metabolize and eliminate the dead fat cells more effectively.

When will I see the results from my BodyFX treatment?

Expect to see optimal results between three and six months, following your final treatment session. Skin tightening results take around the same time to develop, as they rely on collagen formation, which is encouraged in the weeks that follow the treatment. In clinical trials, the average patient saw a 68% reduction in the appearance of their cellulite and a circumferential reduction of on average, 3.58 cm from the areas treated. It’s important to be aware that BodyFX is not a weight loss treatment, but rather a sculpting, body contouring and cellulite reduction treatment.

How many BodyFX treatments will I need?

On average, expect to have between 8 to 10 sessions for optimum results. However, your individual requirements will be discussed and agreed, during your initial consultation.

How long do the results last, from a course of BodyFX treatments?

BodyFX treatments will permanently destroy fat cells. However, you'll still need to exercise regularly and stick to a healthy eating plan to maintain your fat reduction results, as remaining fat cells in the treatment areas can further expand with any weight gain. Cellulite treatment results are usually temporary, as the fibrous bands that cause those tell-tale cellulite dimples are merely relaxed on a temporary basis. However, you can maintain your results with annual top up treatments.
