Stubborn fat that does not respond to diet and exercise is a problem for many patients. truSculpt 3D offers patients a safe, easy, and effective noninvasive treatment option. It is FDA approved to treat the following:
Some of the most common problem areas that can be effectively treated using truSculpt 3D® include the abdomen, love handles, thighs, back, buttocks, and neck. truSculpt 3D® is used in addition to exercise and diet, to enhance the body shape.
Thousands of fat cells combine to form body fat. Fat cells can grow in size but not number. When diet and exercise decrease fat cells to an appropriate size, fat can still be visibly present in some stubborn areas of the body. This type of fat is often referred to as stubborn fat. The only way to reduce fat is to decrease the amount of fat cells. Research has found that heating fat cells to 45° C (113° F) can destroy them.
truSculpt 3D® works by using monopolar radio frequencies to slowly heat fat cells to 45° C. Approximately 60% of fat cells are destroyed during a truSculpt 3D® treatment session. Once cells are destroyed, they are naturally removed from the body by the lymphatic system. The entire process from treatment to cell elimination to visible results can take up to 1 month. Treatments are usually spaced out in 1-month intervals. For maximum results, patients usually need 1 treatment.
truSculpt 3D® is a noninvasive procedure. No anesthesia or intravenous (IV) sedation is necessary. The patient remains completely awake and alert throughout the entire procedure. Once the patient is relaxed and comfortable, a truSculpt 3D® specialist performs the procedure using the following steps:
Typical procedure time is 30-60 minutes. There is no pain or discomfort associated with the procedure. Patients typically describe the feeling of the probe as being like that of a warm cloth.
