truSculpt is a game-changing, non-invasive body sculpting procedure that uses radio frequency (RF) to spot reduce fat deposits, tighten loose skin and diminish the appearance of cellulite. This is a quick, pain-free office procedure to sculpt targeted areas of fat that haven’t responded to diet and exercise. Radio energy delivers heat through a flat hand-held device that penetrates the skin between 7 and 15 millimeters to kill fat cells beneath. Because the handheld device only touches the skin for minutes at a time, there is no pain, just a warm sensation. The truSculpt system can be used to treat most areas of the body, including the stomach, thighs, flanks, as well as, fat under the chin. Once fat cells are destroyed, they are naturally eliminated from the body over the next 4 to 8 weeks, via the lymphatic system.
This is a simple office procedure that takes 60 to 90 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Multiple areas may be treated during the same appointment. truSculp requires no anesthesia. The handpiece is placed on treatment spots for 4 minutes at a time and has a built-in temperature monitoring and feedback system.
Results take between 4 and 12 weeks to become noticeable. Some patients see significant improvement after only one session. However, three treatments, scheduled 3 to 4 weeks apart, are usually recommended to achieve the maximum results. That can be up to a 25% reduction in fat, along with skin tightening benefits and a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
truSclupt uses radio waves to penetrate the skin and destroy unwanted fat cells, and does so painlessly, usually without any side effects. Coolsculpting, on the other hand, uses cold to kill off fat cells, which has caused long-term nerve damage, temporary nodules, bruising and itching. The coolsculpting suction applicator can also cause “shelving,” a demarcation area that is treated and not treated.
