truSculpt is a revolutionary treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to remove stubborn fat and the appearance of cellulite, giving you a trimmer, shapelier figure. Read on to learn everything you need to know about the truSculpt system.
truSculpt – A Safe Way To Get Rid Of Stubborn Fat
The truSculpt system is a safe, noninvasive, and painless treatment that works to remove stubborn fat cells in parts of the body, such as the upper arms, flanks, thighs, buttocks, around the abdomen, and any other area where fat tends to accumulate. This effective treatment is thought to result in an average of 24% fat reduction, as well as help to provide a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite, allowing you to achieve the results you desire in a treatment that takes as little as 15 minutes.
How Does truSculpt Work?
truSculpt uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to deliver accurately controlled RF energy to subcutaneous fat cells beneath the skin. After a brief, preliminary preparation, the truSculpt handpiece is applied directly to the surface of the area of the body to be treated, for approximately four minutes. This RF energy bypasses the skin layer and delivers deep-heating pulses to the precise area of fat tissue, causing the fat cells to die. The temperature is adjusted to your particular comfort level with no topical anesthesia or pain medication necessary.
The truSculpt handpiece is then moved to adjacent areas and the process is repeated until the entire target area has been treated. Once the fat cells are destroyed, your body will naturally break down the fat tissue in the area and dispose of it gradually over several months.
The entire procedure takes on average 15 minutes for smaller areas (such as the upper arms), and up to an hour for larger or multiple areas. There is typically no downtime involved, allowing you to resume your normal activities right after your session.
What Results Can I Expect To See?
The truSculpt system is designed to promote permanent fat cell destruction, meaning targeted fat cells are destroyed and then removed naturally from the body and will never return. You should expect to see noticeable results, including an average of 24% fat reduction, smaller mass, less dimpling, and improved skin tone. It can take approximately 12 weeks to see the final results.
However, having fat cells removed does not mean that weight cannot be gained again in the future. You will need to maintain a healthy weight through proper diet and exercise to prevent new fat cells from developing.
Are There Side Effects?
truSculpt is a safe, noninvasive, FDA-approved treatment that requires no surgery, needles, or anesthesia, and side effects associated with it are minimal. During the procedure, some patients may experience a mild tingling or warmth in the treated area, similar to that of a hot stone massage, but there is generally little to no discomfort.
After truSculpt, some patients may experience minor side effects, including redness, soreness, tenderness, swelling, or sweating in the treated area, but these are temporary and generally get better over a few hours.
Your provider will let you know what you can expect before, during, and after your treatment.
Am I A Candidate For truSculpt?
The good news is that truSculpt is suitable for many people who are looking to get rid of stubborn areas of fat. It is a safe, non-invasive procedure that can be used on any area of the body and on any skin type. However, the truSculpt system is not designed to treat obesity or very large quantities of fat. It aims to target stubborn areas of body fat that are difficult to remove with exercise and diet alone. Treatment is best suited for people with a body mass index (BMI) of less than 30. truSculpt is not recommended if you:
- Are pregnant or planning a pregnancy
- Have a cardiac pacemaker
- Have an internal defibrillator
- Have a medical/metallic implant in the area to be treated
- Have a tumor
- Have a wound in the area to be treated
