Body Contouring Q & A

What is BodyFX?

BodyFX is a noninvasive body contouring system that helps get rid of unwanted fat while tightening and toning your skin for a better, more aesthetic appearance. The BodyFX system can treat large areas of unwanted fat, including your abdomen, thighs, and back.

How does BodyFX work?

BodyFX uses radiofrequency technology to target fat cells deep under your skin. The energy damages the structure of the cell, destroying it. Your body then processes the fat cell and removes it from your body.

In addition to destroying unwanted fat, the energy BodyFX also stimulates the production of collagen, which is a protein that gives your skin strength and support, to tighten your skin and improve appearance and tone and lessen the appearance of cellulite.

Noninvasive body contouring tools like BodyFX can improve the shape of your body, but it isn’t meant to replace a healthy diet and workout plan. A good candidate for treatment should be at or near their ideal body weight.

What happens during treatment with BodyFX?

During treatment, the aesthetic specialist at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine places the treatment wand over the specified areas, and the heat targets your unwanted fat cells.

The procedure is painless and can be completed during your lunch break. As a noninvasive procedure, you can go back to your usual activities following body contouring.

For best results, you may need more than one treatment. The team at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine will discuss your individualized treatment plan with you so you know what to expect before, during, and after treatment.

You may notice an improvement in your appearance soon after treatment, but it may take up to four months for you to see the full effects of the body contouring.

How do I maintain results after treatment?

Body contouring with BodyFX isn’t a free pass. In order to maintain results, the team at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine recommends a healthy diet and exercise plan. You may have fewer fat cells after treatment, but the fat cells that remain can grow in size if you eat more calories than your body burns.
