What is BodyFX?
BodyFX is a long-lasting, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite. The procedure can also be used to target subdermal fat for body-shaping treatments, such as the elimination of a “mummy tummy” or “muffin top”. BodyFX is the first and only non-invasive body contouring and cellulite technology that has been proven in peer-reviewed studies to permanently kill fat cells and tighten the skin.
Who Is A Good Candidate For BodyFX?
Individuals seeking to target trouble areas where they may have difficulty shedding weight are good candidates for BodyFX. This can include individuals who wish to eliminate or sculpt fatty tissue in larger areas like the abdomen, back, flanks, and thighs. BodyFX is also proven effective at targeting dermal and subdermal issues, which includes improving the appearance of cellulite and reducing dimpled skin. The procedure can also repair the loss of elasticity that naturally occurs on the abdomen, love handles, hips, thighs, and other areas that may require a reduction of stubborn fat.
BodyFX treatments are suitable for all skin types, however, candidates who maintain a healthy lifestyle and are near their ideal weight typically show the best results.
What are the benefits of BodyFX?
Undergoing a BodyFX procedure can result in three key benefits.
1) Contouring and sculpting of the body
Over time, it may become more difficult to lose stubborn body fat in key problem areas, including the abdomen, thighs, and “love handles” through regular exercise and diet alone. BodyFX provides a noninvasive treatment that targets these trouble areas and eliminates unwanted body fat and results in a more trim, sculpted figure.
2) Body circumference reduction
In addition to sculpting and contouring, BodyFX treatments can reduce body circumference due to its sub-dermal fat-targeting technology. BodyFX treatments have been proven to reduce abdominal circumferences by up to 9 centimeters and to reduce thigh circumferences by up to 8 centimeters, after eight weekly treatments.
3) Tightening loose skin
Whether due to dramatic weight fluctuations or the natural effects of age, our skin loses elasticity over time, and it is difficult, if not impossible, to restore this elasticity. Clinical studies have shown that BodyFX treatments leave skin looking firmer and tighter, with an overall better texture.
BodyFX Risks & Safety
Your BodyFX treatment will be performed by Dr. Egozi, who will monitor your temperature throughout the treatment to ensure your safety and comfort. There is typically no downtime after a BodyFX treatment, as it is a non-surgical procedure, meaning you can return to your daily routine immediately after your session.
How much will BodyFX cost?
The cost of a patient’s BodyFX procedure will depend on many factors, including the size of the areas they are having treated. Typically, BodyFX costs an average of around $2,000 per zone, for an eight-week treatment.
What is included in the BodyFX procedure?
Using a suction cup, Dr. Egozi will isolate the tissue being targeted by the BodyFX procedure. The suction cup will deliver radiofrequency energy in order to heat the deep tissue.
Radiofrequency energy improves blood circulation and disperses heat into deep tissue. This energy selectively heats the skin tissue and the body’s extracellular matrix, which is where collagen fibers are embedded; the BodyFX device is applied to the skin with the aim of not only reducing fat but also stimulating collagen, which tightens the skin. Radiofrequency energy also heats the skin precisely and optimally to promote the reduction of fat, contraction of the skin, and overall shaping of the body.
Once the targeted area of tissue is adequately heated, the heat causes a contraction of existing collagen fibers, while accelerating the production of new collagen fibers. BodyFx also involves irreversible electroporation (IRE), which destroys fat cells, thereby reducing body circumference. BodyFX can evacuate 60% of the targeted fat in a single treatment at a depth of up to 2 centimeters.
Treated areas are typically around six inches by six inches in size, and are pulsed for ten continuous minutes for maximum results. During treatment, patients can expect a warming sensation, as well as a gentle pulling sensation, which is similar to the feel of a deep-tissue massage.

The Recovery Process Post-BodyFX
Because BodyFX is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, your recovery process will be minimal. Patients may experience mild discomfort, heat, or a mild pulsing sensation, and some skin redness or warmth may be experienced following the procedure. These should disappear within an hour of the treatment’s completion. Otherwise, you can return to your daily routine immediately following your treatment.
