What is truSculpt™?

TruSculpt™ is a breakthrough RF (Radio Frequency) technology that delivers deep heating to adipose tissue for non-invasive fat reduction, body sculpting/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 and other stubborn regions where fat lingers.

Am I the right candidate for truSculpt™?

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 2-5 treatments per area with each treatment approximately 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 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.
