There are a number of noninvasive fat reduction methods available for patients who have stubborn fatty deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. Reducing fat stores can also make cellulite less apparent on the thighs and buttocks. BodyFX is a non-invasive treatment that delivers radiofrequency energy, improving blood circulation and dispersing heat to the deeper tissues. Negative pressure is used to attach skin to the RF electrodes to create uniform heating over the dermis and subdermal layers.

Before Treatment:

No special measures need to be taken before your treatment but we recommend that routine diet and exercise is maintained.

During Treatment:

  • The BodyFX hand piece will be placed on the treatment area. The skin will be gently vacuumed into the hand piece for even heating of the tissue for several seconds and then alternate between adjacent treatment areas. The hand piece will gradually heat the tissue to 40-44° centigrade.
  • Treatment sessions can last between 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the area. A series of sessions will be needed to see results, typically once a week for 6-12 weeks with upkeep treatments every 3-4 months to maintain results. Results tend to improve several months after the final treatment as it takes time for collagen production to complete as well as the lymphatic system to naturally eliminate destroyed fat cells.
  • The goal of a BodyFX treatment is to reduce stubborn fat deposits, improving the appearance of cellulite and overall body contours.

After Treatment:

  • You can immediately return to your routine activities. Continued diet and exercise is recommended.
  • Minor redness and swelling may occur within the first 24 hours following the procedure but typically subside soon after the treatment.

What they say
I fully recommend the team

I have been on this journey of a breast reduction for the last 10 years and have tried everything but with only temporary relief. Dr. Schneider is my surgeon and she put me at ease from the first consult. She answered any questions but is thorough in providing you with information. I’m am 3 days post op and they look great already. I fully recommend the team. They are with you the entire process. I want to give kudos to Yesenia, Kelly, Nicole, Simone, Gabrielle,. Thank you Gabrielle for responding to me on New Years Eve. I really wish I had found this practice years ago. Do yourself a favor if you are contemplating a procedure and just go for a consult. It will change your life.

I had the most amazing experience

I had the most amazing experience with Dr. Norman Rowe's office. Everyone from the front desk staff (Simone and the other young ladies), to the nurses, to the actual Doctor himself are absolutely amazing. At first I was nervous about having the breast reduction surgery but after going in for my initial consultation I was more than ready to schedule my surgery date. I am now 3 weeks post op and even though I still experience some soreness I couldn't be happier with my decision. Dr. Rowe and his team throughly explained everything that was to be expected before and after surgery even down to the insurance. I wish I would've had the surgery sooner. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Dr. Rowe did an amazing job.
