Many people find that despite eating a balanced diet, getting regular exercise, and leading an overall healthy lifestyle, they continue to struggle with stubborn fat in problem areas such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs, buttocks, and upper arms. Liposuction (surgical removal of fat) is an option to get a more shapely body. However, there are also many non invasive fat reduction treatments that can help get rid of unwanted fat in multiple areas. One such popular body sculpting procedure is called TruSculpt. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about TruSculpt, an innovative FDA cleared body contouring treatment.

What is TruSculpt?

TruSculpt is a non surgical body contouring treatment that helps to get rid of subcutaneous adipose tissue (unwanted fat) and better define muscle mass. It is usually offered in stubborn areas such as the thighs, hips, buttocks, upper arms, double chin, abdomen and flanks. The goal is to contour the shape in common trouble areas like the abdomen and give patients a more sculpted appearance.

The TruSculpt platform comes with two hand pieces, which allow providers to treat both large and small areas of the body. As noted, the treated areas are usually common problem areas where most patients find it difficult to eliminate fat.

How does it get rid of fat cells?

The TruSculpt ID and TruSculpt Flex body sculpting systems uses radiofrequency energy to deliver uniform heat to the targeted area. The heat from the RF energy is clinically proven to kill fat cells. This leads to a reduction in subcutaneous adipose tissue in the treated area, giving the body a more shapely silhouette. The fat cells are destroyed without harming surrounding structures. Treatment with TruSculpt can also help reduce the appearance of cellulite (orange peel skin). The broken down fat cells are slowly absorbed by the body over time. The TruSculpt system is designed to deliver uniform therapeutic temperatures to the subcutaneous tissue for consistent results.

What does it feel like?

The entire TruSculpt process takes about 60 minutes of treatment time when large amounts of fat need to be treated. When the treated area is relatively small, the procedure may last as little as 15 minutes.

TruSculpt treatments are painless and comfortable for most patients. Many patients find the treatments to be relaxing and smoothing. Actual patients have described the TruSculpt procedure like a hot stone massage. Therefore, most people tolerate the procedure very well.

Unlike surgical procedures such as liposuction, there is no downtime associated with TruSculpt. You can return to daily activities the same day. Rarely, there may be some minor pain or swelling, but these side effects usually resolve on their own in a few days.

How effective is TruSculpt against stubborn fat?

A TruSculpt procedure provides an average of 24% reduction in common problem areas like the abdomen and flanks.

Is TruSculpt body sculpting permanent?

The fat cells destroyed during a TruSculpt body contouring treatment are gone permanently and do not come back. However, to maintain your final results from the procedure, you need to exercise regularly in addition to your normal activities and ensure you do not gain weight. This is because weight gain can lead to the formation of new fat cells in the treated area, which may give you less than optimal results.

Is TruSculpt fat reduction better than CoolSculpting?

Both TruSculpt and CoolSculpting are body sculpting treatments that can be performed on the entire body. They are used to get rid of unwanted fat bulges and better define muscle mass. Both are easy, painless, non invasive body contouring procedures that are usually offered by an aesthetic clinic or plastic surgery office. The treatment time is short and there is little to zero recovery time. Both are FDA approved and can give optimal results.

However, the two treatments work differently. CoolSculpting uses freezing temperatures to destroy subcutaneous adipose tissue in the targeted area. TruSculpt, on the other hand, uses heat from radiofrequency energy to achieve this.

The key advantage of TruSculpt vs CoolSculpting is that it performs more targeted body contouring with consistent results. Also, most patients need only one treatment with TruSculpt, whereas CoolSculpting may require more than one session to get the same results. What's more, the TruSculpt system has the shortest possible treatment time among all the non invasive fat reduction systems.

How much will TruSculpt cost me?

The price of your TruSculpt body sculpting treatments will depend on the treatment area, how many treatments you need, as well as your geographical location. Remember, you may need multiple treatments, so you should factor that in to calculate your total cost. Your provider will tell you how many treatments you need at the time of your initial consultation. The cost of TruSculpt can range anywhere from $500 to $4,500. On average, patients pay around $2,500 for this non invasive procedure.
