What is truSculpt and truSculpt 3D? How does it work?
truSculpt and truSculpt3D are the latest nonsurgical, no downtime procedures that are clinically proven to reduce problem fat areas on the body which are resistant to diet and exercise. TruSculpt / truSculpt 3D is a breakthrough technology which uses RF (radio frequency) energy to precisely heat and terminally damage fat cells in the subcutaneous tissue layer. These are then eliminated from the body through the body’s natural processes. This is a permanent fat reduction and a smoothing and firming of the targeted area.
Who is a good candidate for truSculpt and truSculpt 3D?
truSculpt and truSculpt 3D are ideal alternatives for both women and men who live a healthy lifestyle but have problem areas of fat that neither a NO-carb, NO sugar diet or any amount of crunches will resolve. To know whether you are a good candidate, we recommend a consultation with Dr. Coundouriotis who will explain the truSculpt technology in detail and determine if the treatment is right for your fat problem.
Who cannot receive truSculp / truSculpt3D treatments?
There are only a few restrictions on who should not have truSculpt treatments. These include pregnant women, individuals with cardiac pacemakers or internal defibrillators, people with metallic implants directly in the targeted area, for example a joint replacement; and individuals with tumors in the target area
How many treatments are required?
The number of sessions needed is depended on the desired result and the area being treated. Treating subcutaneous fat underneath the chin with truSculpt for example could require 2 to 3 sessions spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart. Treating the abdomen and flanks with truSculpt 3D would typically require one session or possible two depending on desired result and starting point.
How long does the treatment take?
Typically a common treatment such as abdomen and flanks would take about one hour of treatment time.
Is the treatment painful?
While pain varies from patient to patient, most find the procedure comfortable.
When will I start noticing results?
The length of time to see results varies depending on various factors such as your starting point, your normal activity level, and the number of sessions completed at one time. The unwanted fat cells are heated with RF energy and gradually die off and then the body’s natural processes gradually break down and eliminate the treated fat cells from the body. This process takes different amounts of time but typically patients begin seeing results in about 4 weeks and this continues through 3 months and beyond.
How quickly can I return to normal activities?
TruSculpt and truSculpt 3D are non-invasive procedures and there is a no downtime. You can return to normal daily activities immediately post treatment.
