About BodyFX and MiniFX by InMode

BodyFX and MiniFX body contouring and cellulite treatment help manage areas of unwanted, diet- and exercise-resistant fat. Clients can receive these services at the Klausner Institute in New York, NY. These areas of health are a common concern for many cosmetic surgery patients. Problems could come in the form of a post-baby “pooch” after pregnancy, areas of fat around the upper legs that won’t budge, excess fat along the hips and back, or even irregularities after body liposuction. No matter what, spot removal of fat can be tough to get rid of forever.

Liposuction has been one of the most popular and top performed cosmetic procedures for many years, and Lee Ann M. Klausner, M.D. is an expert in this branch of medicine. This procedure safely, effectively, and permanently reduces fat and refines the body contour, and reduces cellulite appearance. The BodyFX and MiniFX cellulite removal tool also can smooth out the unevenness post-body liposuction procedure to give a more finished look.

In recent years, nonsurgical or minimally invasive alternatives to liposuction have been becoming more popular. BodyFX and MiniFX noninvasive body contouring treatments don’t need an incision or anesthesia and often come with a shorter recovery time.

What is BodyFX for body contouring and cellulite removal?

BodyFX and MiniFX are new, long-lasting, noninvasive solutions to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite. Treatment will reshape your body to provide a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction. This perfect solution will get rid of your mummy tummy or muffin top and improve your general body contour.

How does BodyFX work?

BodyFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities, including radiofrequency energy, deep tissue heating, and suction coupled negative pressure. The radiofrequency energy distributes heat 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. Results are typically in vivo a 40% fat cell reduction. Areas that typically achieve the greatest results include the legs, abdomen, back fat, and underarm. One of our patients, Susan, said, “I lost inches in my thighs, and my body looks and feels tighter. I would recommend this treatment to anyone who wants to get rid of that little extra fat they are carrying.”

How does MiniFX work and how is it different from BodyFX?

MiniFX, like BodyFX, uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities, including radiofrequency energy, deep tissue heating, and suction coupled negative pressure. The radiofrequency energy distributes heat 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. MiniFX is for smaller, hard-to-reach areas, like the neck, upper arms, and knees, whereas BodyFX is for larger areas, like the stomach and thighs.

How safe is BodyFX and MiniFX in removing cellulite?

A series of RF energy is delivered by a succession of pulses at one million cycles per second during BodyFX and MiniFX treatments. While this may sound intense, it is very safe. 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.

Does it hurt?

Most users find BodyFX and MiniFX comfortable. During treatment, you can expect a warming of your skin and a gentle pulling sensation as the radiofrequency and vacuum work to smooth out unwanted stubborn pockets of fat.

How many body contouring sessions are required?

It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over an eight-week period. Gradual improvements in the treatment area can be seen following the first few treatments with the skin’s surface feeling smoother and softer immediately. A “normal” treatment area is the size of two hands where it takes 10 – 20 minutes of treatment per focus area. If the patient has multiple areas where body contouring is wanted, multiple treatment areas can be focused on in one visit.

What kind of post-procedure care is required?

There is absolutely no downtime for BodyFX or MiniFX. 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 their regular activities.
