truSculpt 3D 101: Why This Fat Reduction Treatment is Different from the Rest
February 1, 2018
These days, if you have unwanted fat, you aren't stuck weighing the pros and cons of surgery or resorting to squeezing yourself into girdles or Spanx to conceal it. Non-invasive, non-surgical fat removal options have made it easier than ever to banish the bulge. truSculpt 3D is one of the newest non-invasive fat removal treatments available. Learn more about the procedure and how and why it's different from the other options out there.
How truSculpt WorksWhile surgical liposuction gets rid of fat by physically removing it from the body and while treatments such as Coolsculpting destroy fat by freezing it, truSculpt 3D gets rid of fat by heating it. When fat gets heated to a temperature of 113 degrees Fahrenheit (45 degrees Celsius), it is permanently damaged. Your body then flushes away the damaged fat, leaving you with a trimmer look. While Coolsculpting freezes fat and liposuction suctions it away, truSculpt uses radiofrequencies to heat up your fat cells and destroy them. The treatment can be performed using either a small or large handpiece, which is guided over the area by the provider.
How Many Treatments You NeedOne way that truSculpt is different from other non-surgical fat removal treatments is that it typically requires fewer treatments than those other options. Many people get the results they are after with just a single treatment session. In some cases, you might want a second treatment, just to fine tune your results.
How Much Fat it Removes
Your body needs some fat to thrive, so don't expect truSculpt to eliminate all of the fat in the area. Instead, you can expect it to clear away about 25 percent of the fat. Losing up to 25 percent of fat in an area can mean that your clothes fit better and that you feel more confident when you look at yourself in the mirror.
