One of the most impressive advances in body contouring aesthetics is the development of non-surgical techniques that allow patients to achieve beautifully shaped silhouettes. TruSculpt is at the cutting edge of such treatments.
For patients who have pounded the pavement on early morning jogs or followed a scrupulously clean diet to lose the unwanted pounds, truSculpt helps with the elimination of stubborn deposits of fat, putting the final contouring touches on your physique. Patients who undergo truSculpt enjoy 24% fat reduction overall in the treated area, along with the added bonus of firmer skin.
How does truSculpt work?
trusculpt uses a handheld device that delivers controlled radiofrequency energy deep into the skin to specifically target the fat cells. The temperature generated by the radiofrequency energy measures between 45 and 47 degrees Celsius, ideal for damaging and eliminating fat cells, while leaving the surrounding skin and tissue unharmed. The treatment takes approximately 15 minutes per targeted area. Most patients find the treatment relatively tolerable, though some areas may be more sensitive than others.
One of the unique benefits of the controlled heating delivered by radiofrequency energy is that the skin is tightened the same time as fat cells are destroyed. This unique energy creates an inflammatory response which stimulates collagen production and tissue repair resulting in firmer skin.
How many sessions are needed? Are results permanent?
You will notice a reduction in fat 6-8 weeks after your first session. For some patients, one session is sufficient to achieve their desired goal; for others, up to three sessions spaced a month apart is preferable. The treatment offers a permanent solution, however, remaining fat cells in the treated area will expand with weight gain, obscuring your results. It’s best to undergo truSculpt when you’re at or close to your ideal weight.
Which areas benefit from TruSculpt?
One of the most advantageous aspects of truSculpt is that it is suitable for nearly anywhere on the body where there are unwelcome fat deposits. It can be successfully used to reduce fat and reveal underlying muscle definition around the:
- The inner thighs
- Flank (lower back fat)
- Bra bulge
- Bingo wings beneath the arms
- Outer thighs
- Buttock roll
How does TruSculpt differ from CoolSculpting?
Patients often ask what distinguishes truSculpt from another high-profile body contouring treatment, CoolSculpting. The most significant difference is that CoolSculpting uses suction and cooling to kill fat cells, while truSculpt uses radiofrequency energy which generates heat.
Unlike Coolsculpting, the truSculpt device does not need to suction soft tissue, which renders it ideal for treating areas where the skin cannot be pinched, or areas where the fat is a little harder to reach.
Is truSculpt right for you?
truSculpt is not a substitute for diet and exercise and is not a tool for weight loss. However, if you have a BMI of 30 or less, and have some lingering concerns about fat deposits, then you’re likely an ideal candidate for truSculpt.
