Body Sculpting Q & A

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting is a noninvasive procedure that addresses the stubborn fat deposits you can lose through a good diet and regular exercise. The treatment requires no incisions and relies on laser energy to destroy fat cells.

As you get older, your body stores fat differently, and you’re prone to a buildup of fat cells in areas such as your:

  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles

With truSculpt 3D, Dr. George addresses these stubborn fat cells through the surface of your skin, and in just a few weeks you can generally see the results of the treatment.

How does truSculpt 3D work?

The truSculpt technology uses radiofrequency (RF) laser energy to target the fat. The RF energy heats up the fat tissue, destroying its structure permanently.

Your body then takes over, metabolizing dead fat cells naturally as waste without the need for additional intervention. Within 4-6 weeks after treatment, you can begin to notice treated areas of your body beginning to slim down, and your natural contours become more apparent.

The truSculpt 3D technology can successfully reduce fat in the treated area by 24% in just one session, and there’s no risk for scars, infection, or damage to the surrounding skin tissue.

What can I expect during a truSculpt 3D body-sculpting appointment?

To ensure truSculpt 3D technology is right for you, Dr. George reviews your medical history and discusses your expectations for treatment. Keep in mind that truSculpt 3D is not a treatment for obesity, and you should be close to your ideal body weight to be a candidate for treatment.

During your appointment, you can expect to relax comfortably on an exam table as the truSculpt 3D applicator is used on the treatment area. You can expect to feel warming sensations as the laser cycles on and off.

Treatment times depend on the size of the treatment area, with many visits lasting less than an hour. You can expect to return to your usual activities immediately after your truSculpt 3D body-contouring appointment.

How long does it take to recover from a truSculpt 3D treatment?

Because body contouring with truSculpt 3D requires no incisions or anesthesia, there’s no recovery time needed. You may have some redness, mild swelling, and increased sensitivity in the treatment area for a few days, but these effects resolve within a few days.

As your body continues to eliminate destroyed fat cells, your physique continues to improve. In many cases, people can see the optimal benefit of their truSculpt 3D body-contouring session within 12 weeks of treatment.

Areas treated with truSculpt 3D appear slimmer and nicely contoured. You may even notice your clothes fit better. With a healthy diet and daily exercise, you can maintain your results for months or years.
