Put on the finishing touches with TruSculpt
At VITAHL Medical Aesthetics, we utilize the latest in non-surgical body contouring to help you restore confidence in your body without having to experience any recovery or downtime. We are the first practice in Denver as well as the state to offer truSculpt™ body contouring treatments. This procedure utilizes non-invasive radiofrequency energy for a safe and effective experience that helps you achieve your aesthetic goals without any post-treatment discomfort.
What is TruSculpt™?
The benefits of non-invasive radiofrequency energy are gaining popularity in aesthetic treatments. Radiofrequency energy has the ability to surpass with the surface of the skin and target underlying fat cells without damaging or injuring surrounding skin, connective tissues, nerves, or blood vessels. Once underneath the skin, the radiofrequency energy converts to gentle heat, destroying fat cells in the subcutaneous layer.
The destroyed cells are then gradually removed by the body over the course of about three months, resulting in improving shape and body contours.
What Does TruSculpt™ Treat?
This safe and comfortable treatment can be used on multiple areas of the body, including the:
- Love handles
- And more!
These treatments are comfortable, quick, and can take as little as 15 minutes to an hour depending on the areas being treated. These treatment options can be discussed with Dr. Humes and our medical team during your consultation.
Who is a Good Candidate for TruSculpt™?
Men and women who are at or near their target body weight, who have areas of excess fat, who have no contraindicating medical conditions, and who have realistic treatment goals and expectations may be good candidates for this procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Humes and our medical team will evaluate your individual condition and determine if truSculpt™ is right for you.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Radiofrequency is non-ablative, meaning it will not damage the skin, but treated areas may be slightly pink or flushed afterward. This treatment is generally safe for all skin types, but Dr. Humes and our medical team will discuss any additional safety information with you prior to treatment. Most patients are able to return to work and normal activities afterward without major complications.
truSculpt™ Frequently Asked Questions
- What is truSculpt™?
TruSculpt is the newest device used at VITAHL for non-surgical body contouring. truSculpt is a breakthrough RF (Radio Frequency) technology that delivers deep heating to adipose tissue for non-invasive fat reduction, non-surgical body sculpting, non-surgical bocy contouring and the temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite. It is designed to treat multiple areas of the body such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs, buttocks, chin and other stubborn regions where fat lingers.
- Am I the right candidate for truSculpt™?
We recommend a consultation so we can discuss your treatment goals and we will determine if this treatment is right for you during your consultation. Typically, ideal patients for this procedure have a BMI of less than 30 and have unwanted fat in different areas of the body.
- Who cannot be treated with truSculpt™?
Patients who cannot be treated with truSculpt™ include those who have cardiac pacemakers, internal defibrillators, tumors and metallic implants (including joint replacements) in the target area. Patients who are pregnant may not undergo this procedure.
- Can truSculpt™ be used on all skin types?
Yes, truSculpt™ can be used on all skin types.
- How long does a truSculpt™ non-invasive fat removal treatment take?
Typically a treatment in one area takes less than an hour.
- How many treatments will I need?
During your consultation, we will discuss the number of treatments you will need based on the area(s) you want to have treated and the results desired. Typically, patients need 1-2 treatments per area with each treatment approximately 4 to 8 weeks apart.
- When will I start seeing visible results?
TruSculpt? delivers RF energy to destroy fat cells in the treatment area. It then uses the body?s natural system to break down and dispose of these cells. This process may take up to 3 months. Patients will begin to feel/see results within days that will gradually increase during and possibly beyond this period.
- What do I need to do before a treatment?
There is no special preparation needed before a treatment except for removing any jewelry or body piercings in the area(s).
- What happens during the treatment?
After a brief pre-treatment preparation, the truSculpt? handpiece is applied to the skin. The handpiece will deliver a pulse of RF energy that heats the skin and fat and will last 4 minutes on average. The handpiece will then be moved to adjacent areas to which this process will be repeated until the entire treatment area has been covered.
- What does it feel like?
TruSculpt? is designed to be a comfortable procedure for non-invasive fat removal and body sculpting/contouring. Due to its proprietary design, the heating of the area will be tolerable. We will adjust the temperature based on your comfort level. Typically, no pain medication, topical anesthesia, gels or active cooling are required.
- Can I return to normal activities after treatment?
Yes, the procedure is non-invasive, so you should be able to return to normal activities immediately. Typically, there is no downtime after the treatment although some patients may experience mild discomfort for a few hours. For example, many patients go back to work immediately after their sessions.
- Is truSculpt™ safe? Are there side effects?
The truSculpt? System is designed to provide a safe and comfortable procedure for non-invasive fat removal and body sculpting/contouring. Side effects can include redness, sweating and mild tenderness in the treated areas. Usually, this resolves in a few hours. We will discuss in more detail what to expect during and after your treatment at your consultation.
