Fractora BodyFx®

Fractora BodyFX targets cellulite, stretch marks, dimpled skin, and loss of skin elasticity on most areas of the body.

We brought Fractora BodyFx to San Francisco in 2013, further expanding non-invasive, skin tightening treatment options for our patients. BodyFx provides a solution to improve the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks (for some), reduce dimpled skin, and address loss of elasticity on almost any area of the body.

What is BodyFx?

BodyFx is a long lasting, non-invasive solution to reduce the appearance of cellulite, leading to improvements in your body contour. BodyFx can reshape your body to provide a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

What areas can I treat with BodyFx?

BodyFx uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radiofrequency (RF) energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure. The radio-frequency 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 contouring results.

Is everyone a candidate for BodyFx?

During a complimentary consult, our Body Sculpting Specialists can help you determine if BodyFX is an ideal treatment for the the area and issues you want to address.

When will I see results?

While some patients may notice results sooner, it is typical to see the benefits of BodyFx approximately 2-4 months after beginning treatment. For example, if your goal is to see results by June, you may want to begin your series of BodyFx treatments in January. Individual results vary.

What happens during a BodyFx treatment?

A series of RF energy is delivered by a succession of pulses at 1 million cycles per second. While this may sound intense, it is very safe. To maximize comfort, the body’s temperature is constantly monitored by the BodyFx device, with ongoing accurate feedback of the skin’s temperature. This thermal monitoring allows your Body Sculpting specialist the utmost in temperature control. After the BodyFx portion of the treatment, your specialist will Zwaves the area to enhance the results of your treatment even further. Zwaves is included at no extra charge.

Is BodyFx painful?

Most users find BodyFx tolerable. During treatment you can expect a warming of your skin and gentle pulling sensation as the radio- frequency and vacuum work to smooth out unwanted pockets of fat. This can be an uncomfortable sensation however, being sure to come to your appointment especially hydrated (64-80 oz of water daily for 2-3 days prior to treatment) can considerably lessen any discomfort.

How do I prepare for a BodyFx treatment?

No specific preparation for BodyFx is necessary although being sure to hydrate with at least 64-80 oz of water daily for 2-3 days prior to your visit can make you more comfortable during treatment.

How will I feel following a BodyFx treatment?

There is no downtime with BodyFx. It can be scheduled as 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.

How many BodyFx treatments will I need?

Our Body Sculpting Specialists typically recommend 8 BodyFX treatments per desired area, one each week for 8 weeks.

How much does BodyFx cost?

BodyFX treatments start range from $100 - $650 per treatment depending on the size of the area we’re treating. With all BodyFx treatments we include complimentary ZWaves.
