If you are trying to decide on a body sculpting treatment, it can be difficult to find the best one for you. Finding the advantages that each treatment offers can be helpful in determining the best treatment. At The Bougainvillea Clinique, we offer truSculpt, a safe fat elimination treatment that many patients can enjoy.
What Is TruSculpt?
TruSculpt is a revolutionary body sculpting treatment that achieves results without invasive surgical procedures. The treatment is FDA approved and was developed by Cutera, a company specializing in cosmetic solutions. The treatment device is used to perform lipolysis through the use of radiofrequency energy. Lipolysis is the elimination of fat cells by heating the fat cells with radiofrequency energy.
This does not mean that patients will be subject to any harm. The device does not cause any harm to the patient’s tissue or skin surrounding the fat and will not cause any bruising or scarring. The device is precise and only targets fat cells.
What to Expect From Treatment
A patient will begin their treatment with a consultation to ensure that body sculpting treatment is right for them. If body sculpting is right for the patient, the first treatment session can be scheduled. There is no need to prepare for a session and recovery time is minimal, so patients will not need to plan on missing work.
A specialist will perform the treatment using the radiofrequency device to eliminate fat from the target area. The patient will be kept comfortable during the treatment, and there is a range of customization available to meet the patient’s needs. The treatment is completed at our Winter Park office location and patients will not be required to stay overnight.
After the treatment, the patient can return to their planned work or activities, and they will not see sudden changes in their appearance. The fat elimination process takes time, so patients will see a gradual change. The patients will have a more lean and thin body in the weeks following the treatment.
What Happens to the Treated Fat?
The treatment destroys fat cells, resulting in a reduction of 24% of fat from the target area, but the destroyed fat cells are not removed from the body during the treatment session. The body will naturally remove the fat cells as waste over several weeks. The lymphatic system is responsible for removing the destroyed fat cells, but this will not affect the patient’s health or daily life in any way. Fat cells that have been removed from the body will not regenerate or come back, so the results are long-lasting.
The Advantages of Body Sculpting With TruSculpt
Full Body Treatment
The treatment can be used to treat most areas of the body, giving patients the opportunity for a full-body fat removal makeover. Areas of the body where fat tends to build up and form pockets are part of the areas that are included in treatment, such as the “love handles” or flanks. Deposits of fat on the abdominal area and back can also be treated. The bra strap area, upper arms, hips, inner thighs, and outer thighs can all be treated. Fat removal from these areas can slim the treated area by several inches.
Patients can lose inches of fat from their waistline after treatment, making their clothes fit more comfortably and improving their self-image. Patients may be able to tighten their belt, reduce their dress size, and fit into a smaller pants size after the treatment. The treatment can eliminate deposits of fat from the target area in quick sessions and provides long-lasting results. Patients will wear a new-found confidence, and many patients will be motivated to keep their lean body by going to the gym and living a healthy lifestyle.
Most Patients Are Eligible
Healthy adults looking to lose stubborn pockets of body fat are the ideal candidate for this treatment. Patients of all ages, gender, and skin type can enjoy safe and effective fat elimination. Those patients who are reluctant to undergo surgery or liposuction can enjoy results from body sculpting without the long recovery period. Some patients even plan their treatment session during a lunch break and return to work immediately after treatment, so even the busiest people can enjoy this fat elimination treatment.
Safe and Painless
TruSculpt is FDA approved for the safe elimination of fat in patients. The radiofrequency energy targets fat cells with heat but will not damage the skin or tissue surrounding the fat. Patients sometimes describe the sensation as gentle heating that feels like a hot stone massage that can be felt for some time after the treatment session. Patients do not find the treatment to be painful or uncomfortable and can easily pass the time with a nap or light reading. The treatment does not require patients to be under anesthetic or any medication during the session.
The treatment results are long-lasting in most patients and can be permanent. The fat cells that have been treated do not regenerate or come back after they are removed from the body. Patients can be treated more than once if needed, but most patients need only one treatment for lasting results. The treated area becomes less affected by weight gain because there are fewer fat cells to become enlarged after treatment. Patients find it easier to maintain a healthy lifestyle after treatment thanks to the boost body sculpting provides.
Treatment sessions can be completed in an incredibly short amount of time. The shortest sessions last only 15 minutes, but a full-body treatment can take slightly longer. Many patients require only one session to reach their desired goal, and few patients require more than two sessions to reach their goal. If patients require more than one session, the additional session is completed 12 weeks after the previous session. Touch-up or maintenance sessions are only required in rare circumstances, but they are always an option. The treatment can be customized so that it is tailored to each patient.
Natural Timeframe for Results
Most patients enjoy subtle improvements after treatment as they get closer to their body goals. The treatment takes time to reveal the results and is not as sudden as some other body sculpting options. Patients will see a gradual loss of fat during the 12 weeks following the treatment. This means that nobody will notice the patient has had a body sculpting treatment and the results appear as if they are from diet and exercise. Patients will have time to get used to their thin and lean appearance and watch their self-image improve in a more natural timeframe.
No Recovery or Downtime
After the treatment, there is no downtime. Patients will be able to leave our office immediately and return to their regular activities and work. Patients will not be given a complicated list of recovery instructions to follow and can go about their day with little change. Patients will not have to change their lifestyle due to pain, bruising, or swelling when they leave their treatment session. In the hours following the treatment, patients only note warmth coming from the treated area.
Reduced Weight Gain After Treatment
Patients who do not live a healthy lifestyle after their treatment may gain weight, but will not likely see much fat growth in their treated area. Any growth in fat will likely be deposited in untreated areas of the body. The treated area has a reduction in fat cells and should not show remarkable fat growth. Overall, patients find it easy to keep the weight off after the treatment because they want to keep their desired results.
How Does It Compare to Other Body Sculpting Treatments?
Body sculpting through liposuction can provide patients with a fast and dramatic body transformation. After the procedure, patients will be required to stay overnight for inpatient care and recover at home for several days. The procedure is not risky thanks to modern techniques, but patients will be under anesthetic for the duration of the procedure. For patients who cannot take several days off of work, a body sculpting treatment like truSculpt can be an excellent alternative with quick and painless treatment.
More commonly known as a tummy tuck, an abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure that is meant to remove unwanted fat and tighten lax skin on the abdomen. The procedure is common for improving the appearance of the abdomen after a weight loss transformation or childbirth. While the tummy tuck is safer and less invasive than in the past, patients will still require inpatient care and anesthetic, followed by a lengthy at-home recovery. TruSculpt is preferred by patients who are looking for a body sculpting treatment that is non-surgical and has no downtime.
CoolSculpting is a body sculpting treatment designed by Allergan that freezes unwanted fat cells. The treatment provides long-lasting results with no downtime, but the results take time to improve, so reaching a patient’s body goal can take almost six months. CoolSculpting can be a good choice for those looking to achieve results after a single quick treatment, but truSculpt provides comparable results in only six to 12 weeks after one or two quick sessions. Patients with a condition that is affected by cold may not be recommended candidates for CoolSculpting.
Body sculpting with Venus Legacy and truSculpt are both achieved through heating the fat cells with radiofrequency technology. Venus Legacy provides the added benefit of tightening the skin by building collagen and elastin but does not provide long-lasting and maintenance-free results. Patients will be expected to return four times per year to maintain their contoured and firm body. This makes Venus Legacy more time consuming and costly in the long run, but it can be more effective for patients who need the skin tightening it provides.
Is It Expensive?
The body sculpting treatment is not expensive when compared to surgical and liposuction treatments, and since there is no downtime, patients will not need to miss work. This can be helpful for patients with a busy work life and can help patients avoid missed wages. The treatment requires few sessions, so the cost can be less than those treatments that require frequent touch-ups. The price of the treatment depends on the patient’s needs. Contact The Bougainvillea Clinique for a customized treatment plan and an accurate price range.
Who Is Not a Good Treatment Candidate?
Patients will undergo a consultation to find out if there are any health risks that may interfere in their safe treatment. Most healthy adults can enjoy the treatment, but the treatment is not recommended for patients who are pregnant or nursing.
