We chose truSculpt 3D as our Body Contouring device because it uses Radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat and destroy fat cells in what is called 'apoptosis'. The body then flushes the dead fat cells away. Results will start showing up a few weeks after the treatment and can continue for up to 3 months if a healthy lifestyle is maintained. This RF energy also tightens the skin of the treated area (goodbye cellulite!).
There is not a lot of pain associated with truSculpt. There is a warm sensation that will increase over the treatment time. Glycerin is spread over the treatment area to prevent the skin from burning and acts as a cooling agent. Some say it feels like a warm stone massage.
There is hardly any downtime. The treated area may be red and be sensitive to the touch for the following days. You can resume regular activities, including exercise immediately. In fact, we recommend exercise to speed up the body's metabolism.
Usually only 1 treatment is needed. It is important to realize that this procedure is not a 'fix-all'. A healthy lifestyle must be maintained to keep results. This is not an alternative to a healthy diet and regular exercise.
Our ideal candidate is someone who has a BMI below 35. This treatment is to help fight areas of laxity on the body or unwanted, stubborn fat that just can't seem to go away.
The beauty of truSculpt 3D is that where there is enough fat, we can treat it! Unlike other body contouring devices, the handpiece is gliding, which allows us to customize area size.
We can treat the double chin (submental region), the arms, thighs, and the abdomen and flanks.
Yes! However, it uses heat instead of freezing the cells to destroy them. This heat also causes the skin to tighten! So, truSculpt treats cellulite whereas other body devices do not. The cells leave the body in a similar fashion.
Non-surgical, no-downtime - even resume exercise immediately after! Only one treatment is often needed - resulting in up to 24% fat reduction. truSculpt Body Contouring available at Jovencia Medical Spa in Ponte Vedra Beach.
