BodyFX uses a combination of radio-frequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure to body sculpt and remove cellulite. Electrical energy travels from the device to the subcutaneous fat tissue no more than 25 mm deep. This is just deep enough to eliminate unwanted subcutaneous fat cells, as well as stimulate collagen and elastin remodelling. Cellulite is eliminated and the skin is tightening because destroyed fat cells do not come back, while elastin and collagen regrowth smooths the appearance of skin. We recommend using BodyFX once a week for a 6-8 week treatment cycle. We can also do longer treatments and space them out every 2-3 weeks, depending on what fits your schedule. Gradual improvements are noted with BodyFX treatment, however skin may feel softer and smoother immediately after leaving our office. There is no downtime required for BodyFX treatment. Most patients experience a warming and pulling sensation during treatment. Some swelling and discomfort may be noticed after treatment, please contact us if you have any concerns regarding your treatment at any time.
MiniFX is a non-invasive contouring and cellulite technology that delivers a combination of clinically proven modalities, similar to the BodyFX, however, addresses problematic fatty tissue in smaller areas like the neck , arms, and knees.
Tone and refine your body with Contoura’s skin tightening solutions: the Plus (for body). Plus works by warming the skin and subcutaneous fat to increase metabolism, thus stimulating the growth of elastin and collagen in stretched, grumpy skin. The procedure feels like a hot massage, as the hand-piece is rubbed on the target area to destroy poorly aligned elastin and collagen and promote the growth of new fibres. A minimum of 6 treatments, one treatment per week, is recommended for Plus and Forma patients. Each target area takes approximately 15 minutes to treat, which allows for no downtime. Patients find this treatment very relaxing, and notice some results immediately following treatment.
Fractora by InMode is a radiofrequency treatment coupled with microneedling technology designed to target stubborn wrinkles, lines, surgery/acne scarring, as well as other skin imperfections. Electrical pulses alongside small needles that pierce the skin destroy collagen and elastin fibres that are poorly aligned, and stimulates the body to produce new ones. This process resurfaces the skin, leaving a smoother, fuller appearance.
Fractora treatments usually last over an hour. Numbing cream is applied for patient comfort and allowed to settle before Fractora is used. A minimum of three treatments is recommended for optimum results.
Fractora is a more intense solution for fine lines and imperfections than Sharplight Radiofrequency treatments or an Intense Pulse Light facial. That being said, a day of recovery time is suggested for facial Fractora treatments, and to be extra careful about sun exposure. Dr. Smith and one of our technicians will carefully go over any concerns you may have, as well as the necessary aftercare instructions during your consultation and treatment.
The best part of Fractora for us is that we can treat acne scarring, surgical/burn scarring, and deeper lines better than we were able to before. We have many different pieces for different targets and for different skintypes. Be sure to book your free consultation with Dr. Smith and one of our technicians to ensure that Fractora is right for you!
