So you lead a healthy lifestyle by exercising regularly and making healthy food selections but still you have problem areas that just won't slim down or cellulite that just won't go away. It's not so bad that you would consider invasive surgery like liposuction but still you want to look better. BodyFX by InMode is a new medical treatment that could well be the answer to your desires.

Utilizing a proprietary form of radio-frequency energy and gentle suction, BodyFX is able to destroy those fat cells while at the same time tightening the skin and reducing cellulite. Fat cells are killed when the temperature in the fat compartment is raised to 50 degrees Celsius. Unfortunately, this is a temperature not well tolerated and would damage the skin. BodyFX is unique in that we are able to raise the temperature of the fat compartment to 42 degrees Celsius which puts the fat cells in a fragile state, then a short burst of energy is put into the compartment that disrupts the fat cell membranes resulting in cellular death. In addition, skin tightening occurs when the skin temperature is raised to 40-42 degrees Celsius. The gentle suction, skin tightening, and fat destruction also achieve a significant improvement in cellulite.

BodyFX may be especially good for those areas that are not well treated by liposuction such as the inner thighs, knees, and arms. These are areas that are prone to skin laxity so the combination of fat cell destruction and skin tightening is especially important. This gives the BodyFX a significant advantage over alternatives such as CoolSculpting which treat a more defined area without the benefit of skin tightening and cellulite reduction.
