Body Contouring with truSculpt 3D Q & A

What is body sculpting?

Non-surgical body sculpting is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction that diminishes stubborn fat you can’t get rid of with diet and exercise. There are four main body sculpting options:

  • Exposure to cold
  • Sound waves
  • Light waves
  • Radio waves

There is no downtime, or surgical scars associated with any of these treatments and many patients report losing several inches over the course of therapy.

What is truSculpt 3D?

TruSculpt 3D uses radiofrequency technology to destroy unwanted fat through the use of deep, uniform, temperature distribution, that breaks down fat cells. Your body then flushes out the remnants of the treated cells. Other cells in the treated area are not affected.

TruSculpt 3D uses particular electrodes that eliminate both hot spots and edge effects. The truSculpt 3D system includes a built-in temperature monitoring and feedback system that gives Dr. Collins real-time readings of skin temperature. The readings ensure both achievement and sustainment of the required therapeutic parameters for the length of the session.

The features of truSculpt 3D ensure your comfort and safety. With truSculpt 3D, there is no need for incisions or anesthesia.

Most people start seeing noticeable results six to eight weeks after treatment. After a single treatment, some patients see almost a quarter reduction in fat thickness in the treated area. Each session lasts between 15 minutes to one hour depending on the size of the target area. The number of treatments needed depends on desired results. It is best to wait for optimal results – around a month – before scheduling a follow-up session.

It is vital that you maintain a healthy diet and continue a consistent exercise routine as these are the best methods for fat reduction. Body sculpting procedures, including truSculpt 3D, are not recommended for obese patients.

What portions of the body can truSculpt 3D treat?

TruSculpt 3D treats large and small areas of the body including:

  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Flanks
  • Hips
