Trusculpt Updated

What is truSculpt?

TruSculpt is an FDA approved non-surgical and non-invasive fat reduction procedure that uses radiofrequency technology set at therapeutic temperatures to help contour and sculpt the body while removing cellulite. This treatment works for all skin types and is designed to target problem areas like the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. TruSculpt uses deep heating radiofrequency to eliminate those stubborn bulges and shape other areas of the body.

How long does it take to see results with truSculpt?

Patients typically start seeing results as early as four weeks and maximum results appear around the 12-week mark. As with any procedure, results vary depending upon the patient and the area treated. Once the treatment is done, the fat cells will be gone forever!

Frequently Asked Questions

How many different types of truSculpt treatments are there?

Currently, there are two different TruSculpt treatments. TruSculpt ID and TruSculpt 3D are both designed to remove fat cells permanently but vary slightly in their method.

TruSculpt ID:

This treatment lasts around 15 minutes and works for any body size or shape.
TruSculpt ID can eliminate unwanted fat in just one treatment.

TruSculpt 3D:

This treatment lasts around 1 hour and also works for any body size or shape.
TruSculpt 3D can help improve definition and reshape your body.

Your doctor can help you decide which TruSculpt treatment is best for you based on your personal goals.

How does a truSculpt treatment work? Is it painful?

The TruSculpt tool is placed over the targeted area while a radio frequency pulse is signaled to deeply heat the tissue. This process is repeated for each section of the problem area until completely covered. TruSculpt treatments are designed with comfort in mind. The treatment can be described as a warm massage, but the temperature can be adjusted based on comfort levels. Since the procedure is non-surgical and non-invasive, there aren’t any local anesthetics or pain medication necessary. Cooling gels are rarely applied after the treatment making the entire experience pleasant and stress-free. You should be able to return to normal activities immediately after the treatment.

How many treatments does truSculpt require?

Dr. Kedar and the trained staff at Metrolina Medical Associates will advise you on the specific number of treatments required depending upon the area targeted and the desired results. However, the typical treatment plan for TruSculpt is one or two treatments spaced out over the course of a few months.

Who is considered a candidate for truSculpt treatments?

Typically, TruSculpt is designed to target unwanted fat in certain areas. It’s not meant to help with extreme weight loss or to replace more aggressive forms of body sculpting like liposuction. The non-invasive, non-surgical advantage of TruSculpt allows it to provide results with minimal disturbance to the rest of the body. If you are pregnant, have any metallic implants, or have a cardiac pacemaker, then you will not be able to be a candidate for TruSculpt. After a consultation with Metrolina Medical Associates, we can determine if TruSculpt is the best option for you or if another procedure would be better suited.
