Contoura BodyFx and MiniFx
What is Contoura BodyFx and MiniFx ?
Contoura BodyFx and MiniFx are noninvasive devices for killing fat tissue and tightening skin and is specifically designed to smooth out areas of cellulite. In studies, 30% of adipose (fat) cells to a depth of 2.5 cm were destroyed and this innovative technology also aided in building 13.7% new collagen in the area of treatment. New collagen deposition helps with the appearance of a more youthful, firmer, smoother and tighter skin appearance. Very few technologies, if any, have proven scientifically that they increase collagen deposition. Contoura is the only device of its class that has been able to scientifically prove significant collagen deposition in studies.
Contoura works by heating the adipose tissue and increases the metabolic rate, causing fat cells to shrink. Contour BodyFx combines radiofrequency (RF), a suction coupled vacuum and oscillating electrode pulses to induce fat cell death and it continues to work over time. There is a 40% reduction in fat thickness at 3 months in posttreatment studies. Mean abdominal volume loss post treatment was 202.4 and 428.5 cc at 1 and 3 month post treatment, respectively. The device has built in safety features to minimize complications and to maximize comfort. Specifically, for cellulite, skin is made smoother with less divots and bumps by decreasing the herniation of fat into the dermis, by flattening nodules and elevating pits and by reducing the vertical height of adipose tissue. This process remodels the skin to create a smoother and less bumpy-lumpy appearance, thus minimizing cellulite.
For the treatment of cellulite and loose skin, 2-5 sessions, one week apart is usually all that is needed to achieve a desired effect. If there is moderate to severe laxity in the skin, one session a week for 6-8 weeks will achieve a more desirable effect. With this loose type of skin, to further slowdown the ongoing skin aging process, one session every 1-3 months may be necessary. For the best treatment of cellulite and for skin tightening in larger areas such as the abdomen and legs, the BodyFx works wonders. For smaller areas such as the chin, neck, arms, elbows and inner knees, there is the MiniFx.
From the postpartum woman with abdominal laxity to the woman with significant weight loss who now has loose abdominal skin, from the woman with creping skin on the arms and neck to the woman with cellulite on the legs and buttocks, Contoura is for you.
