According to a 2019 Statista survey regarding Americans and their 2019 New Year’s resolution, 48% of the respondents wanted to lose weight. In the same study, 59% percent wanted to exercise more. Unfortunately, many who achieve the weight that they desire are not happy with the pockets of fat that refuse to go away with weight loss. At Dermatology & Skin Care Associates in Mason, Ohio, we use the TruSculpt® 3D Body Contouring system to help you reach the look that matches the hard work you put in all year to achieve a healthier lifestyle.
While liposuction can remove unwanted fat from your body, it is expensive, usually performed under general anesthesia, invasive, painful, and requires significant downtime. TruSculpt Body 3D is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that breaks down stubborn fat cells with no downtime. Clients receive noticeable results with just one treatment; however, the number of treatments depends on your goals and the amount of body fat you are trying to lose.
What Is Body Contouring?
Body contouring is often performed to improve the way your skin and tissue look after losing a significant amount of weight, having a baby, or having unappealing fat in certain regions of your body. Body contouring involves removing excess skin or fat (sometimes both).
Traditionally, patients would undergo liposuction or body contouring surgery, facing pain, risks, and a prolonged recovery time. The TruSculpt® treatment system provides a fast, non-invasive way to achieve body contouring with no downtime!
What Exactly Is the TruSculpt® 3D Body Contouring Treatment?
When proper diet and a regular exercise regimen alone do not get you the aesthetic results you desire, TruSculpt® 3D can help you get a more slim, contoured body. This unique, non-invasive system uses a multi-dimensional strategy to make the targeted area smaller and get rid of the fat.
The system transmits radiofrequency (RF) energy to the deep skin layers without causing damage to the skin. However, this heat-generating energy permanently destroys fat cells. The body then takes over by using its natural processes to rid you of the fat cells, leading to a thinner beautiful you.
Is There Any Downtime?
TruSculpt® uses RF technology, which is powerful enough to penetrate beyond the skin to treat the entire fat layer without discomfort. The TruSculpt 3D features a mechanism that makes sure the temperature is stable, which maintains the consistency of the results while maintaining your comfort.
How Long Will My Treatment Last?
Your treatment time depends on how many areas you are treating and the circumference of those regions. You can expect your treatment to last between 15-60 minutes.
What Body Areas Can I Treat?
The two popular areas that people treat include the stomach and flanks. You can treat many other areas, such as under your chin, upper arms, and your inner and outer thighs. During your consultation, discuss your goals and the areas you want to treat with our doctor.
How Do I Progress From Interest to Treatment?
The process from interest to treatment is in place to maximize your results. First, perform a self-assessment to see if you are a candidate for our contouring solution system.
Then, schedule a consultation with one of our dermatologists. Treatment usually lasts up to an hour, depending on the number and size of the treatment areas. You can help maintain your results by continuing your diet and exercise regimen.
How Do I Know That I Am a Good Candidate?
Anyone with unwanted fat would be a good candidate. If the following applies to you, then you are ready to schedule your consultation.
- You have stubborn fat even though you eat well and exercise regularly
- You want to avoid invasive procedures like liposuction
- Your schedule does not allow for downtime
- You have specific areas you want to treat
- You are in good health
- You do not have a metal implant
During your consultation, one of our dermatologists will review your medical history, examine the targeted areas, and discuss your goals. This consult is a critical part of the process. Discuss your concerns and expectations during your session. You will get detailed instructions on how to prepare for your consultation.
What to Expect During Treatment
Depending on the areas treated and goals, your consultation will take anywhere from ten minutes to an hour. Because this is a pain-free process, you do not need any topical numbing. Some compare the treatment to a hot stone massage. The 3D glide technique used to destroy the fat cells is effective, painless, and delivers consistent results.
What to Expect After Treatment
Your body starts destroying the fat cells immediately. After the treatment, your body’s natural elimination process takes over. You can expect to see results after two months, with full results being noticeable after only three months.
An average of 24% fat reduction can be expected. The fat cells are permanently destroyed. Keeping up a proper diet and exercise regimen will help reduce the chance of fat returning to the treated area.
So How Many Treatments Do I Need?
You can get multiple areas treated at one time. The number of treatments depends on your goals and the amount of fat in the areas to be treated. If you need more than one treatment in an area, wait eight weeks in between treatment.
