Contoura is a complete body focused solution that can be utilized for body, cellulite and skin remodeling, without incisions, scars or downtime. It is noninvasive and completely safe, as it is fda approved. The contoura machine utilizes three handpieces, bodyfx, minifx, and plus.
BodyFX uses a combination of clinically proven modalities of radiofrequency energy, deep tissue heating and a vacuum to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite in big areas such as the abdomen, hips, butt and thighs. The radiofrequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, which works together with a vacuum modality to decrease fat and tighten skin at the same time. The combination of these two modalities causes permanent fat cell death through a process called pyroptosis. The inflammatory response following cell death causes skin contraction, which results in a tighter skin appearance. Clinical studies have shown that the mechanism of action used in the Bodyfx machine have caused a mean reduction in fat thickness of 40% three months after a course of eight treatments done one week apart. Furthermore the studies show a 35% skin contraction one year post treatment.request an appointment
