TruSculpt Body Sculpting
What is TruSculpt body sculpting?
The truSculpt® 3D body sculpting system is a body contouring treatment that reduces your body measurements and the appearance of cellulite. Through deep tissue heating with radiofrequency, it diminishes fat cells and decreases your circumference without surgery.
At the optimal temperature, the system targets subcutaneous adipose tissue or the fat cells that lie below the skin. After the treatment, your body’s immune system kicks in to break down and flush out the damaged fat cells. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!
What parts of the body does TruSculpt target?
If you have a problem area that never seems to go away despite your best efforts at diet and exercise, you might find exactly what you’re looking for with TruSculpt. The treatment helps define and reduce fat deposits in the:
- Love handles
- Belly pooch
What should I expect during the treatment?
While you relax in a reclined position, your doctor gently glides the wand over the targeted areas. The heat from the wand penetrates the skin and patients have likened the experience to having a hot stone massage. While the procedure is well-tolerated and relatively painless, it may result in some residual tenderness.
The treatment usually takes less than an hour, and results are visible after one treatment. Noticeable results start to appear between 6-8 weeks and up to three months later.
What are the benefits of TruSculpt treatments?
First, the treatment is highly effective. No matter what skin type you have, you can get up to a 24% fat reduction from one TruSculpt treatment.
Second, the results are repeatable. Once you see how great your results are after your first treatment, you may want to get the treatment for other problem areas in your midsection. You can also come in for touch ups anytime you want..
Third, the treatment is very safe. It’s a non-invasive procedure that doesn’t cause any damage to the outer layer of skin. Side effects are generally very mild.
Finally, TruSculpt treatments require no downtime. After the hour-long treatment, you can return to work or home without any restrictions.
