Wouldn’t it be nice to snap your fingers and permanently do away with unwanted fat without having to diet, spend hours at the gym or go under the knife? Sounds too good to be true? Maybe not anymore.
Imagine a simple and relatively painless way to melt away stubborn fat and streamline your curves. No, it’s not a dream or a fantasy. It’s the very real experience for thousands of happy patients who have undergone non-surgical body contouring treatments to look and feel more confident about their bodies.
Surgical fat reduction procedures are slowly declining. That’s because today’s busy consumers want real results with the least amount of downtime. To cater to this growing demographic, a new generation of non-surgical fat reduction treatments has come to market. These technologies promise to eradicate fat cells and permanently slim down areas such as the abdomen, flanks, back, arms and inner thighs.
TruSculpt Treatment Clinically Proven to Reduce Stubborn Fat Cells
Fat reduction (lipolysis) technologies fall into four major categories: cryolipolysis (freezing fat cells), laser lipolysis (using laser energy), injection lipolysis (treating fat cells with corrosive solution) and the more advanced and popular radiofrequency (RF) lipolysis.
One of the latest technologies in RF lipolysis is the truSculpt treatment. It uses monopolar RF to break down subcutaneous fat and assist with body contouring. Why monopolar? It’s believed that monopolar is the more efficient type of radiofrequency (vs. bipolar or multipolar). It penetrates deeper into the dermis (up to 20mm) and more effectively destroys fat tissue, even in areas that tend to be resistant to diet and exercise.
Another advantage of truSculpt is that it selectively targets fat cells while leaving the surrounding areas untreated. Once the fat cells are destroyed, the body naturally eliminates them through various metabolic processes. Patients can achieve up to 24% fat reduction in as little as one treatment with truSculpt® iD, a 15-minute procedure using six hands-free attachments. Multiple areas can be treated during one session.
What to Expect with the truSculpt Treatment
Here are some things to know if you’re considering non-surgical fat reduction for the first time.
You’re a good candidate for truSculpt if you are close to your ideal body weight. It can smoothen your contours and help you look better in clothes. Many patients can finally wear their favourite items of clothing that were previously too tight. TruSculpt shaves off centimetres rather than kilos. Therefore it’s not a replacement for a proper weight loss and exercise program if you’re overweight and need to slim down for health reasons.
The biggest advantage of truSculpt is how comfortable and pleasant the treatment experience is for patients. Most people describe it as getting a hot stone massage. It may feel like a relaxing spa-like procedure but make no mistake: your fat cells are targeted and dealt with using one of the most advanced fat-burning technologies.
After the procedure is over, the target area feels warm for several hours but there’s no numbness or swelling associated with other procedures such as cryolipolysis and injections. With truSculpt there’s truly no downtime, and patients can resume their normal activities immediately.
TruSculpt is suitable for all body shapes and types. It’s very versatile and can be customised to contour both large and smaller, hard-to-reach areas. Body contouring treatments can also be combined with skin-tightening technology in cases where patients want to address excess fat accompanied by skin laxity, for example following a pregnancy or significant weight loss.
Although some improvement can be observed after only one session, some people may require several visits to achieve the desired results. It can take up to 12-16 weeks for your body to metabolise and remove all the damaged fat cells.
