Unless you’re a supermodel or a professional athlete, there’s a good chance you’re not entirely happy with the way your body looks. Specifically, you’ve probably got at least one or two areas of loose, flabby fat you’d like to get rid of. And even though you’ve tried to get rid of it with diet and exercise, those stubborn pockets of fat just won’t budge. It’s discouraging, yes. Even frustrating. But guess what? Diet and exercise aren’t your only options. At West Coast Aesthetics and Veins, we help clients blast away stubborn fat with TruSculpt, an innovative non-invasive body contouring treatment that doesn’t involve surgery, anesthesia, incisions, or scars.
TruSculpt body contouring: How it works
Unlike some contouring procedures that use laser heat or “cold energy” to melt or freeze fat, TruSculpt uses radiofrequency energy to break down fat cells so they’re gone once and for all. The TruSculpt applicator emits precise wavelengths of radiofrequency energy that’s attracted to fat cells. As the energy is absorbed by the fatty tissue, it works to gently but continuously heat up the cells until the fat cell walls break down, releasing the fatty material they contain. Over the next several weeks following your treatment, your body works to metabolize the fat debris, eventually disposing of it through natural bodily processes.
Because radiofrequency energy is attracted to fat cells, the surrounding tissue remains unaffected and unharmed. Plus, since fat cells in the treatment zone are destroyed, they won’t come back. That means those slimmer, sleeker contours are all yours. Of course, you can still gain weight in other areas, including areas adjacent to the treatment zone. After your treatment, you’ll want to continue to eat a healthy diet and get plenty of exercise so you can keep looking and feeling your best.
Here's what happens during a TruSculpt session
At West Coast Aesthetics and Veins, we work closely with each patient to develop a custom treatment plan aimed at achieving the best results. Depending on the size of the area that’s being treated, most TruSculpt treatment sessions take from 15 minutes to about an hour. During your session, you’ll recline and relax while the TruSculpt handheld applicator is passed over your skin. The applicator will emit very precise amounts of radiofrequency energy across the treatment zone, painlessly breaking up fat cells while leaving the rest of your skin comfortable and unharmed. As the radiofrequency penetrates your skin, you’ll feel waves of warmth very similar to a hot stone massage. The TruSculpt applicator provides a continual stream of information about your treatment so the energy can be modulated to ensure you get the most consistent results.
In addition to breaking down fat cells, the gentle heat of the radiofrequency energy tightens your skin so the entire treatment area looks firmer and more toned and your new contours look smooth and sleek. This gentle heat is an advantage over fat-freezing treatments that can leave the overlying skin loose and lax.
Since TruSculpt is performed on an outpatient basis, you can leave right afterward and go back to your regular routines. You can expect to see the final results of your treatment in about eight to 12 weeks once your body has metabolized the fatty debris. Although one treatment may be all it takes to help you reach your goals, if you have a larger amount of excess fat you’d like to get rid of, you might need a second treatment to further refine your contours. TruSculpt can get rid of as much as one-fifth of the fat in a single treatment zone, which is a big reason why the treatment is so popular among both women and men.
