Trusculpt 3D

What is truSculpt?

The technology of truSculpt uses radiofrequency energy to help you achieve the physique you want. The handheld wand delivers this heat energy below your skin to disrupt fat cells so they die. Your body then disposes of these fat cells through its natural waste-removal system.

The truSculpt device offers an energy frequency that penetrates more deeply than other similar fat-reduction treatments, so you get better results and your skin stays at a lower, more comfortable temperature throughout a session. The device also features internal temperature monitoring, which automatically responds by reducing the temperature of the treatment if your skin gets too hot.

What areas can be treated with truSculpt?

Many areas considered resistant to fat loss can be treated with truSculpt. These include:

  • The abdomen
  • The thighs
  • Under the chin

Your treatment can be customized to your aesthetic goals. A team member helps create a treatment plan that contours your body in a way that other fat-loss methods, such as exercise, can’t.

How effective is truSculpt?

One truSculpt session can effectively reduce up to 24% of fat cells in any given treatment area. Many people opt for multiple sessions with truSculpt to achieve even better results.

When will I see results from truSculpt treatments?

Your body needs time to eliminate the fat cells destroyed by truSculpt’s energy. You begin to notice changes in treatment areas after about four weeks, and your optimal results appear at around three months.

The results are permanent, however, because the fat cells are destroyed. With fat loss achieved through diet and exercise, fat cells remain and always have the potential to plump up again if you eat too many calories or can’t be physically active.

Does truSculpt hurt?

You feel heat and tingling during treatment, but most patients tolerate truSculpt sessions quite well. The procedure requires no anesthetic, topical numbing creams, or sedatives.

Following a session, you may have some redness and mild tenderness in areas that were treated. These symptoms resolve quickly -- typically within just a few hours.

Is there any downtime associated with truSculpt?

Because it’s noninvasive, truSculpt involves no sutures, incisions, or blood loss. You can go right back to your normal activities following treatment.
