Body Contouring By BodyFX
Love handles. Muffin top. Bra rolls. Saddle bags. Cellulite. No matter how hard you work out or how clean you eat, these stubborn stored fat deposits are hard to get rid of. Until now. Say hello to Body Contouring by BodyFX.
BodyFX is Viva’s new state-of-the-art, non-invasive solution for fat and cellulite reduction and body sculpting. It combines radio frequency energy, deep tissue heating, and light vacuum pressure to target underlying fat. The heat melts fat cells and tightens the skin, while the vacuum pressure and energy pulses reshape the body.
Best of all, the results are permanent with zero downtime.
How Does Body Contouring Work?
A non-invasive alternative to liposuction, BodyFX reduces stubborn fat deposits, improves the appearance of cellulite, and shapes and contours the body. This FDA-approved treatment uses a combination of clinically proven modalities including deep tissue heating, radiofrequency (RF) energy, and suction coupled with negative pressure.The BodyFX hand piece is placed on the treatment area, targeting the unwanted stubborn fat deposits beneath. The skin is gently vacuumed into the hand piece for even heating of the tissue for several seconds.
Fat Reduction + Skin Tightening
The radio-frequency energy distributes heat into the targeted tissue and underlying fat causing the tissue to heat and contract. Once the the targeted tissue reaches temperature (43-44 degrees centigrade), a precise high voltage energy pulse is delivered to destroy the localized fat cells. The heating effect stimulates collagen which helps tighten the skin and fibrous tissues that cause cellulite. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses work synergistically together to deliver beautiful body contouring results and fat reduction.
Over time, the destroyed fat cells are swept away by the body’s lymphatic system, which is the body’s natural process for damaged cell removal. Results are long-lasting, noticeable, and natural-looking.
What Issues Does Body Contouring Improve?
BodyFx fat removal treatments address stubborn fat in the following areas:
- abdomen (belly fat or muffin top)

What Technology Do You Use?
After much research, we chose the Contoura workstation with BodyFX device by InMode for our body contouring and fat removal treatments at Viva. It is the first and only non-invasive body contouring technology published in peer reviewed and published human studies to both permanently kill adipose tissue and contract the skin.
Unlike other body contouring options, BodyFX:
- Kills fat
- Reduces cellulite
- Tightens the skin
Is It Safe?
This FDA-approved workstation features proprietary A.C.E. (Aquire, Control and Extend) technology that targets deep within the skin to ensure that no areas are under or over-treated. The body’s temperature is constantly monitored, with ongoing accurate feedback of the skin’s temperature. Thermal monitoring provides the utmost in temperature control, maximizes results and delivers consistent outcomes.
What Are The Benefits?
BodyFX is an incredible alternative to liposuction and extreme exercise or dieting. Here’s why:
- No incisions, discomfort or downtime
- Tightens, tones and lifts the skin
- Reduces dimpled skin
- Improves the appearance of cellulite
- Improves overall body contour
- Effective for all skin tones
- Long-lasting results
How Long Is A Body Contouring Session?
The average treatment time is between 30-60 minutes, depending upon the size and number of treatment areas.
What Does BodyFX Feel Like? Does It Hurt?
For most clients, BodyFX feels like a warm, deep tissue massage. During the treatment, you will feel the skin warm and a mild suction as the radio frequency and vacuum pressure work to smooth out unwanted fat pockets.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is zero downtime after your BodyFx treatment. Typically clients will experience warmth and redness in the treated area which will subside after a few hours. However, you can get back to your regular activities immediately post treatment.
We also strongly recommend keeping your skin hydrated after your body contouring session. Drink plenty of water, use good moisturizer on the treatment area, and reduce your alcohol intake.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Most people achieve their desired outcome after six sessions performed once a week. Upkeep sessions are recommended every 3-4 months to maintain results.
Additional body contouring sessions are safe to continue without taking a break, if you are looking for further improvements.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
Some clients see immediate fat and cellulite improvements after the first treatment. Skin tightening effects take more time to present. You’ll see gradual improvements — like softer, smoother skin — in the treatment area following the first few sessions.
Results will continue to improve several months after your final treatment because it takes time for collagen production to complete and your lymphatic system to eliminate destroyed fat cells.
How Long Will Results Last?
Results are permanent. However, your skin will continue to age from its new point of improvement.
How Much Does Body Contouring Cost?
All BodyFX treatments are sold in packages and by zone. Each body zone is a treatment area of up to 12 square inches, except for the chin. Arms and love handles count as one body zone — the treatment area is split in two.
The total cost depends on the number of zones treated per session.
|Treatment Area||Series of 6 Treatments|
|Body Zone (12″ x 12″)||$2,100|
|Additional Body Zone||$1,800|
Am I A Good BodyFX Candidate?
Body contouring is the ideal treatment for both men and women who want to get rid of pesky fatty areas that don’t respond to exercise or diet in a matter of weeks. It is designed for fat loss, not weight loss. Good candidates for BodyFX are:
People who exercise and have a healthy diet but can’t get rid of stubborn fat areas — like belly fat, love handles or back fat. Overall good health, stable weight and a BMI of 30 or lower are great candidates.
Close To Ideal Weight
Are you within 10-20 pounds of your ideal weight? Eliminating stubborn fat will help you inch closer (or lose inches) to your goal.
All Skin Types
Body sculpting is safe and effective for people of all skin types, including darker skin
Who Is Not A Good Candidate?
- Obese people who want to lose weight
- People with loose skin looking for a solution
