Have you worked hard to lose weight through diet and exercise, but have found that certain areas of your body are still stubbornly hanging on to fat? Even if you focus your exercises on these areas, the results can be disproportionate to how much effort you are putting in. TruSculpt 3D body contouring is a non-surgical and non-invasive way to reduce fat in specific areas of the body. If you are looking for fat-reducing solutions that will complement your healthy lifestyle, we offer a cutting-edge treatment called truSculpt 3D body contouring at Mariposa Aesthetics & Laser Center.
What Is Non-Surgical Body Contouring?
For some people, a surgical option such as liposuction may be a good choice for removing stubborn fat deposits. But surgery can come with more risks and longer downtime. Taking time away from work or other activities isn’t always feasible. Non-surgical body contouring such as truSculpt 3D targets and destroys fat cells in the treatment area without any incisions or downtime.
TruSculpt 3D works by delivering radiofrequency energy into the area. Without damaging the skin, the radiofrequency energy goes straight to the fat layer. It warms the water in the fat cells, causing the fat cells to shrink and die. Your body will shed the cells over the next few weeks.
Can You Spot Reduce Fat Through Exercise?
Many exercise programs promise to spot-treat fat in certain parts of the body. But while intensive core or leg workouts may help to build muscle in these areas and help you lose weight overall, it isn’t possible to spot reduce fat through exercise. Where you do lose fat the fastest through diet and exercise is largely determined by your genetics rather than the areas you target. This is why so many people are frustrated by their weight loss programs. TruSculpt is a way to target the areas that don’t respond as well to weight loss.
What Are the Benefits of TruSculpt 3D Body Contouring?
TruSculpt 3D Is Non-Invasive
One of the biggest benefits of truSculpt 3D body contouring treatments is the fact that it is non-invasive, pain-free, and involves zero downtime. There are no incisions or injections and you can immediately go back to your routine.
TruSculpt 3D Is Fast
Many truSculpt 3D appointments only take 15 minutes from start to finish. If there are more areas that you want to target, appointments can last longer. It is a procedure that you can do before work or during your lunch break without interrupting your day.
TruSculpt 3D Comes With Minimal Side Effects
TruSculpt commonly comes with very few side effects. You may have tenderness in the area for up to 2 weeks along with some redness that should fade in a few hours.
TruSculpt 3D Can Reduce Fat and Tighten Skin
TruSculpt 3D not only destroys fat cells in the treatment area, but it can also help to tighten up the skin. This can help to reduce loose skin which can sometimes result from fat reduction treatments.
Where Can TruSculpt Be Used?
TruSculpt 3D body contouring can be used on many different parts of the body. It is commonly used on the abdomen and love handle areas. It can also be used on the thighs, underneath the arms, on the back, under the chin, and more. You can talk to us about your problem areas to find out if truSculpt 3D is a viable solution for you.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
A good candidate for non-surgical body contouring is an individual who is mostly happy with their current weight but who wants to lose fat in certain problem areas. We also recommend it for people who have a BMI of 30 or lower. It is best for patients who are in good overall health. It is not a good treatment if you have a tumor in the treatment area, you have any metal implants in your body, or you are pregnant.
What Can You Expect from TruSculpt 3D Body Contouring?
When you arrive for your appointment, we will start by marking the treatment area. Then you will lie down in a comfortable position while we begin the treatment. We will apply a gel to the area that is used to help the device glide smoothly across your skin. While we use the truSculpt 3D device, we will monitor the temperature of your skin to make sure that it stays at the ideal temperature for fat cell destruction.
During the process, you will feel a warming sensation on the treatment area as the device heats your skin. This heat is not painful and does not injure your skin. It will feel similar to a hot stone massage and can even feel relaxing for some people. Your treatment will last 15 minutes per area.
You may start to see results after 6-8 weeks but most people notice the biggest change at around 12 weeks. One truSculpt 3D body contouring treatment can destroy up to 24% of the fat cells in the area.
