Body FX – a real story

Kimberly has always been a breath of fresh air in our practice.  Since entering her new endeavor as a business owner of the Sparrow Hill Inn, a boutique bed and breakfast in Monroe, she is incredibly busy.  When she consulted with us about Body FX and learned that the series would require eight visits for treatments, she didn’t hesitate to say that she was anxious to get started.

The outsider would look at this beautiful woman and ask why she was even interested in discussing this amazing treatment, but Kimberly is actually the perfect candidate for this revolutionary type of body contouring. 

Body FX is one of the new and most exciting treatments on the market that can actually permanently break down body fat.  This technology works by combining radio-frequency energy, deep tissue heating, and suction coupled negative pressure to permanently break down the top thirty percent of the fat layer in the trouble area, and smooth lax skin and cellulite at the same time. This provides a wonderful alternative to liposuction, as it has no downtime.  Body FX also treats larger surface areas at a time than other comparable machines on the market and has extra measures to guarantee client safety during treatments.  Areas typically treated include abdomen, thighs, arms, back fat, knees, flanks, and hips.  It has been very popular among men and women alike, and the results have been amazing.  Naturally, clients with trouble areas that are resistant to diet and exercise like Kimberly are ideal candidates.   However, the treatment has been a launching point for others looking to embark on weight loss. 

This takes us back to Kimberly’s story.  She had noticed that despite her active lifestyle and healthy diet, her abdomen was not responding.  Kimberly made the commitment to see us weekly for eight weeks to treat this area.  Each session lasted about forty-five minutes.  When I sat down with her at her final photo appointment, she was excited to see her results.  This conservative, busy professional told me that she was hoping to be my poster child, and I am happy to say that she is.  She said that while her weight had only changed minimally, her body had changed drastically and even her kids noticed.  “I was hopefully optimistic when starting Body FX treatments.  The difference I witnessed over the course of treatment gave me added incentive to make even better choices with my diet and lifestyle.  I love the fact that I got not only my confidence back but my wardrobe, as well”, claims the forty-nine-year-old.  “Before  Body FX I felt soft and pudgy.  My clothes did not fit right anymore and I was noticing fullness in my abdomen.  Because of the change from Body FX, I actually wore a two-piece on the beach during my recent vacation.”
