truSculpt™ is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that uses a handheld device to emit radiofrequency energy that heats fat in deep tissues. It can be used to treat those parts of the body which often have fat that doesn’t respond to exercise.
truSculpt™ can, therefore, be used on the chin, abdomen, thighs, buttocks and hips. In addition to removing fat, truSculpt™ also tightens the overlying skin, and it can also help improve skin tone.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
During a truSculpt™ treatment, your treatment provider will apply the device to the patient’s skin, and it will emit radiofrequency energy. The energy pulse typically lasts for a short time. A treatment session can range from under twenty minutes to an hour.
Most people need just one or two sessions to get the desired results. People who need more than one session should space their sessions four to eight weeks apart.
The provider can adjust the temperature to keep the patient comfortable. Most patients don’t need anesthetics or pain medication while undergoing truSculpt™.
How Long is the Recovery Period?
Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after a session. A few may feel mild discomfort after treatment, but that generally fades after a few hours.
The most common side effects of a truSculpt™ treatment may include redness and tenderness at the treatment site, but they generally fade after a few hours.
When Will the Patient Start Seeing Results?
The patient will start to see results within a matter of days. Heating fat cells destroys them, and the body’s immune system then breaks them down. The process generally takes between four weeks and three months.
Is TruSculpt™ the Same as CoolSculpting®?
No. While truSculpt™ uses radiofrequency energy to heat cells, CoolSculpting® uses controlled cooling to freeze them. Both procedures do destroy fat cells. truSculpt™ can be used on more parts of the body, and is not limited like CoolSculpting®.
