Reveal beautiful and youthful contours and smooth the skin with MiniFx and Forma.
MiniFX™ and Forma are highly-effective, non-invasive face & body shaping techniques designed to tackle small yet problematic fatty areas without surgery or downtime! By harnessing the amazing power of radiofrequency energy, coupled with deep tissue heating and negative pressure massage, in a specially-designed hand-piece perfect for treating smaller and hard-to-reach areas, MiniFX™ and Forma deliver powerful body shaping to reduce small pockets of unwanted fat resulting in smoother, slimmer, tighter skin!
While BodyFX and Forma Plus are ideal for larger pockets of fatty tissue along the abdomen and thighs, MiniFX and Forma utilize a smaller hand-piece specifically designed to deliver this powerful body-shaping energy to smaller areas of fat cell accumulation, such as around the shoulder blades where men & women tend to carry a pocket of fat. It is also an ideal way to treat submental fullness, the accumulation of fat underneath the chin leading to the appearance of a “double chin”, as well as other areas of the body that are difficult to reach with less specialized technology such as under arms, above the knees and around the jawline and neck.
This Procedure Can Treat
Just like body contouring, facial contouring methods involve using fractionated radiofrequency energy to reduce wrinkles, rebuild collagen, and shape and tighten the face. Beginning at the deepest layers of the skin, the radiofrequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to reveal beautiful, youthful contours and tighten the skin.
This is a safe, effective and exciting treatment that offers patients significant aesthetic changes to slow (and even reverse) signs of aging. There is no downtime in this effective “lunch-time” procedure that will make anyone look years younger!
“Having been ‘blessed’ with my mother’s genetics, I have a double chin even though I’ve never been overweight. After 6 treatments of MiniFx, it just melted away! I love my results, thank you RevitalyzeMD!”
– Elizabeth, RevitalyzeMD patient

Facial Contouring FAQs
When you arrive for your session, you will meet with one of our nurses, who will mark out the treatment zones on your body. You will then be asked to lie down and the nurse will begin applying the MiniFx device. The device uses vacuum pressure to gently tug on the skin, in order to ensure maximum treatment depth. The area is then treated with a series of high frequency radio waves that raise the temperature of the underlying fat cells causing them to die. Temperature controls carefully monitor the heat output to prevent damage to any of the surrounding tissues. Most patients experience no discomfort, just slight warmth.
Each treatment will last between 30 minutes to an hour.
Since MiniFx is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, there is absolutely no downtime required. You may return to your regular activities as soon as you leave our beautiful office. You may have mild redness at the treatment site following your procedure. This is normal and should subside within a few hours. Over the course of the next few weeks and months, you will begin to notice the contouring benefits as your body gently carries away the dead fat cells and reveals the gorgeous sculpted look you crave. It’s recommended that patients avoid very hot water for two days following a BodyFX session and refrain from scrubbing the affected skin. Apply moisturizer to the treated areas each day. We have very gentle, post-procedure moisturizers available – your provider will be happy to help you find the best product for you.
Most users find MIniFx comfortable. During treatment you can expect a warming of your skin and gentle pulling sensation as the radio-frequency and vacuum work to smooth out unwanted stubborn pockets of fat.
There is no need for any anesthesia, and you can return to your normal activities immediately.
Yes! BodyFX™’s propriety application modality constantly monitors skin temperature throughout the procedure to ensure precise, controlled heating without the risk of overheating or burns.
