With other body sculpting strategies including freezing, liposuction, and ultrasound, it is important to know the advantages of truSculpt to compare side by side. These consist of:

  • It utilizes radio frequency energy
  • Treatments are less than 60 minutes
  • Desired results can be seen in 1 to 2 sessions
  • Compared to other alternatives, it has absolutely downtime after the treatment
  • It targets fat cells and doesn’t harm the skin

How is truSculpt 3D Performed?

The procedure is expected to be pain-free. It includes a device being put on your skin in area to be treated. The tool produces a radio frequency energy that pulses and heats the location for approximately 4 minutes or as determined by the individual providing treatment.


How Effective Is truSculpt 3D?

Some are seeing approximately a 30 percent reduction in fat and cellulite in troubled areas from just one treatment. Most patients begin to see results, which may include a reduction of several inches, within 4 weeks of their treatment. Maximum results are seen after about 12 weeks. Results differ from patient to patient.


Who is a Candidate for trusculpt 3D?

The ideal candidate for truSculpt 3D is someone who is close to their ideal body weight but has areas of stubborn fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. The areas that benefit most from this treatment are the thighs, buttox and abdominal areas, but other areas can also be treated. If a patient needs huge amounts of fat to be removed, it is not the procedure for them. Liposuction or other fat-reduction treatment would produce better outcome. However, it can further improve the outcomes of these types of procedures when carried out after the client has actually recovered from another body surgical treatment.
