Body Sculpting Q & A

What is truSculpt 3D?

TruSculpt 3D is an FDA-cleared noninvasive fat-reducing treatment that delivers targeted radiofrequency energy to eliminate fat. 

This powerful treatment provides deep penetration, from the skin to muscle, destroying as many fat cells as possible. Over time, your body slowly removes these cells through natural excretion.

As a convenient handheld device, truSculpt 3D offers flexibility to treat both large and small areas around the body. On average, patients see a reduction in fat by up to 24 percent.

Which areas does body sculpting treat?

TruSculpt 3D works especially well on small or large fat pockets that haven’t responded to traditional diets and exercise, including areas like:

  • Love handles
  • Fat above the knees
  • Abdomen
  • Bra fat
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Saddlebags
  • Calves
  • Buttocks
  • Double chin

Most patients also notice a reduction in the appearance of cellulite following their truSculpt 3D treatments.

How does body sculpting work?

The goal of truSculpt is to heat fat cells just enough to destroy them, without harming your skin. Dr. Albaugh controls the heat settings as he glides the handheld device across the treatment area. 

This gliding technique cuts the treatment time down dramatically while dispersing heat, for a more comfortable experience. 

It’s perfectly normal to feel a warm sensation during the treatment. Each session takes about one hour, made up of approximately four 15-minute cycles per treatment.

As your body naturally eliminates unwanted fat cells, you can expect to see noticeable results within the first six weeks to three months. 

Not only does the treatment reduce fat, but your skin should also look tighter and firmer. Most patients feel that their bodies look more contoured following their first treatment.

Can I expect any side effects from truSculpt?

TruSculpt is a noninvasive treatment that produces very few, if any, side effects. Some of the most common truSculpt side effects include:

  • Excessive sweating
  • Redness
  • Tenderness
  • Overall discomfort

Each treatment requires no downtime, and any side effects you experience should subside within a few hours. While each case is unique, most patients need one to two treatments, every four to eight weeks, to see their desired results.

TruSculpt can help you achieve the body you’ve always wanted, without the downtime of more invasive cosmetic procedures. Call Visage Ventura Medi-Spa or schedule an appointment online to learn more.
