Do you have stubborn fat that just won’t go away, even though you eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly? It may seem as though you’ll be stuck with those problem areas forever, but you don’t have to be. A body-contouring treatment called truSculpt ID can slim down areas of unwanted fat and tighten the surrounding skin, giving you long-lasting results. Sun City Laser in El Paso, TX, is excited to offer this transformative treatment.
Is truSculpt ID Permanent?
This treatment permanently gets rid of fat cells, giving you results that will last a lifetime. But it doesn’t mean you can’t gain weight in the future, because the fat cells that remain in your body will still be capable of growing. To best maintain your results, you’ll want to adhere to a healthy lifestyle. For many patients, the great results they get from this body contouring treatment are a powerful incentive for staying in shape.
How Does truSculpt ID Work?
This treatment system uses monopolar radiofrequency energy to break down areas of unwanted fat just below the skin. During the three months following your appointment, your lymphatic system will dispose of those damaged cells, and your problem areas will gradually shrink. This treatment system has been found to reduce fat by 24%.
And that’s not all: this treatment jumpstarts collagen production and tightens skin, which ensures that once that fat is gone, you won’t be left with loose, sagging skin.
What Is Treatment Like?
During your appointment, applicators will rest against your skin in the area you want to be treated. You may feel slight warmth as the applicators deliver the radiofrequency energy, but you won’t feel any discomfort. Some patients compare the treatment to a hot stone massage; albeit a short one. Some treatments can be performed in as little as 15 minutes, while others may take closer to an hour.
The skin in your treatment area may appear flushed immediately afterward, but this will go away within an hour, and you’ll be able to return immediately to your regular schedule. You can even have this done during your lunch hour if you wish.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
For most patients, one or two treatments, scheduled about a month apart, are all they need. If you want additional body contouring, you can always schedule more treatments once your results have fully developed.
What Parts of the Body Can This Treatment Address?
Patients frequently have this treatment performed on the abdomen and flanks, but it has also been used to address other areas like the thighs, upper arms, and knees. You can have a single, larger area treated or have multiple smaller areas addressed at once.
Do I Need to Do Anything in Advance to Prepare for My Appointment?
You’ll want to remove any jewelry or piercings in the treatment area, but nothing else will be required in the way of preparation.
How Does This Differ From Other Body Contouring Treatments?
It Can Be Used on Heavier Patients
A lot of the other body contouring systems on the market are best suited for patients with a body mass index that’s less than 30. TruSculpt ID, however, can sometimes be used on slightly heavier patients, and it may be one of the few contouring options available to heavier patients. This system can also be used to help patients who might not be candidates for other treatments because of skin type or the location of the unwanted fat.
It Takes Less Time
Many other contouring systems require a series of treatments, but TruSculpt ID patients often need just a single session. The length of each TruSculpt session is also generally shorter. Many patients are done in less than 30 minutes.
It Tightens Skin
One of the big advantages of TruSculpt ID is that it tightens the skin and gives it a more youthful look. It’s not uncommon for patients who lose weight or get rid of a problem spot to be left with loose, sagging skin. This is a particular problem for older patients who have skin that is less elastic and less able to conform to the body’s new shape.
The skin tightening benefit associated with this treatment system means you won’t have to worry about that. In fact, you can look forward to firmer, rejuvenated skin after your session.
What Other Advantages Does truSculpt Offer?
Everyone patient’s cosmetic concerns are a little different. Some of us really want to tighten up our flanks but for others, the abdominal area is the primary concern. TruSculpt ID is a versatile treatment that can be customized for each patient’s body. After talking with you and evaluating your areas of concern, we’ll design a treatment plan just for you.
If Offers Natural Results
Unlike invasive treatments, which usually result in an immediate change in the body, patients who have undergone truSculpt see their results develop gradually over a couple of months. As a result, the improvement in the body looks more natural. You’ll look as though you’ve been working out and taking great care of yourself.
It Can Help You Look and Feel Amazing
This treatment system can help you resolve the stubborn areas you’ve struggled with for years. Taming those spots and finally achieve the physique you’ve long wanted feels amazing. Your clothes will fit well, and you’ll feel a new confidence in your body. Many of our patients also find that their sleek new contours make it easier to live a more active life.
It’s Completely Non-Invasive
Patients love the fact that this treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive. That means you won’t have to worry about scheduling any downtime for this treatment. This is an easy and convenient way to shape up your body.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
You’ve Got Problem Spots
The best candidates are individuals who need help with a specific problem area or two that just won’t seem to budge despite regular exercise and a healthy diet. If you want to sculpt and fine-tune certain areas of your body, you may be an excellent candidate for this treatment.
You Can Maintain Your Results
This treatment permanently gets rid of fat, but you’ll still need to keep your body in good condition going forward. This means sticking with a conscientious diet and exercise program.
You Have Good Health
Patients should also be in good general health and free of any serious underlying issues. Individuals who are pregnant, or who have cardiac pacemakers or internal defibrillators, are not generally considered candidates. Individuals who have metal implants or tumors in the area being treated are also not candidates.
You Understand the Outcome
The best patients understand this treatment and how it works, and are realistic about the results it can offer, which are generally more subtle than what can be achieved with more invasive approaches.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can This Treatment Help With Cellulite?
Cellulite forms when fat collects around the fibrous cords that latch skin to the underlying muscle. As fat accumulates around those cords and puts pressure on them, the surface of the skin takes on an uneven texture that is best known as cellulite. Although this treatment system gets rid of that fat, it is not considered to be a solution for cellulite.
Will It Help With a Double Chin?
Yes. This treatment, when applied to the area just below the chin, can reduce the fullness that sometimes develops in that area.
Can It Be Combined With Other Treatments?
Yes. This treatment combines nicely with other cosmetic treatments. Botox, dermal fillers, and laser hair removal are among the cosmetic services offered by our practice that patients frequently opt for in combination with truSculpt.
How Much Weight Will I Lose With This Treatment?
Patients don’t lose very much weight as a result of this treatment. The beauty of this treatment is that while it won’t help you shed pounds, it will remove small amounts of fat from the places where you most want it gone, leaving you with a sculpted appearance. If weight loss is your primary concern, your best strategy is to embark on a diet and exercise plan.
Can This Treatment Be Performed Over a Tattoo?
Yes. This treatment can be performed on tattooed parts of the body and it will not distort the images.
Can Men Take Advantage of This Treatment?
This treatment works well on both men and women who need help tackling areas of unwanted fat.
What Age Should I Be To Undergo This Treatment?
This treatment can be performed on almost anyone age 18 or older. Most patients turn to this treatment system when they’ve become frustrated with problem areas that haven’t responded to diet and exercise. This can happen at any age.
Is This Treatment Safe?
Yes. This fat-removal treatment has been cleared by the FDA and can be safely used on almost all skin types and tones.
How Does This Treatment Compare to Liposuction?
Many of us have heard of liposuction, which for many years was a popular fat-removal treatment. Although liposuction is still used, several new body contouring treatments have made it much easier to get rid of small amounts of body fat. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that requires anesthesia and an incision. TruSculpt ID and many of the other new body contouring treatments require no anesthesia and no downtime, making them a popular alternative.
What Other Body Contouring Treatments Does Your Practice Offer?
In addition to truSculpt ID, our practice offers BTL Vanquish Me, which uses radiofrequency technology to get rid of fat, and UltraShape, which uses ultrasound technology to sculpt the body and get rid of fat. BTL Vanquish Me and UltraShape are also convenient and non-invasive treatments. During your initial consultation, we’ll recommend which of our body contouring treatments is best for you. We may even recommend a combination of the treatments.
