You put in more hours at the gym than you want to. You have not had dessert in months. You’ve stopped drinking alcohol. Yet you still can’t achieve your desired contours. At Timeless Laser & Skin Care in Westlake, OH, we are excited to offer TruSculpt, a safe, effective way to enhance your contours.
Is TruSculpt Permanent?
Yes, TruSculpt is permanent. The results of this treatment are always permanent because it kills fat cells, and your fat cells are not like any other cells in your body. While skin cells, muscle cells, and other types of cells regenerate regularly, your body stops being able to grow new fat cells at the age of 25.
However, you should understand that you must maintain a healthy lifestyle after your course of treatments to maintain your desired contours. This treatment does not destroy all of the fat cells in the targeted areas. If you operate at a caloric surplus, you can still store excess energy in the fat cells that remain in the treated areas.
How Does This Treatment Work?
TruSculpt uses RF (radiofrequency) energy to hone in on and kill subcutaneous fat. This powerful treatment results in permanent, dramatic contour changes. Over the course of 12 weeks, your body will sweep up, process, and dispel the dead fat cells in the treatment area. Typically, people can enjoy a 24% fat reduction in the targeted area, but you should understand that individual results vary.
Also, this incredibly beneficial treatment warms your skin to the point that it produces extra collagen. This firms up your skin so it tightens more quickly than it would with other fat removal treatments. Put another way, you don’t need to worry about loose, sagging skin decreasing your self-confidence once you’ve eliminated excess fat for good.
What Should I Expect During This Treatment?
You should expect there to be absolutely no pain during your treatment. In fact, clients often remark that they are surprised by how pleasant the treatment experience is. Since it warms your skin, people often liken it to a hot stone massage. During your treatment session, we will gently apply small applicators to your skin. These applicators deliver radiofrequency waves through your skin, warming the fat cells in the targeted area.
Depending on the number of areas you are targeting for treatment, your session may take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes. What’s great about this treatment is you are free to return to work as soon as your session is over. There is no downtime required whatsoever. Another great thing about this treatment is you don’t have to worry about any long-lasting side effects following your treatment.
How Many Sessions You Will Need
During your initial consultation, we will evaluate your current body fat distribution and discuss your cosmetic goals. With that information, we can advise you on how many sessions you may need to achieve your desired look. Most people only need one or two treatment sessions to achieve their desired contours, but if you are still 30 pounds from your goal weight, you may need more than two treatment sessions.
Which Areas Can Be Targeted
People most commonly use TruSculpt to target larger areas for fat removal, such as the flanks, hips, back, or stomach. However, you can also use this treatment to eliminate unwanted fat from smaller areas, like the arms, thighs, knees, and underarms.
Just let us know during your initial consultation about all of your regions of concern. There is a very good chance that you will have enough fat in the area to qualify for treatment. However, you should be aware that it is possible to have too much fat in a given area to qualify for this treatment. Regardless, we will tailor a treatment plan for you that will help you improve your contours.
How Should I Prepare for My Treatment Session?
Yet another great thing about this treatment is you have very little to do to prepare for your TruSculpt session. It is advisable to eat a small, nutritious meal or healthy snack before your treatment. Also, it is advisable to drink at least 16 ounces of water or tea within two hours of your scheduled session. Finally, to help your treatment go as quickly as possible, you should come in without any jewelry in the treatment areas.
What Makes This Treatment Better Than Alternatives?
It Is Extremely Accessible
One reason this treatment is much better than other fat removal treatments is its accessibility. It is safe for people regardless of skin type and tone, and most people qualify regardless of weight.
It Is Extremely Convenient
Some fat removal treatments require four to six sessions to achieve ideal results. On the other hand, you will probably only need one or two TruSculpt sessions to sculpt your desired contours. Since treatments are usually completed in 15 to 60 minutes, you shouldn’t expect to spend much more than achieving the contours you have been working so hard to get for the past several years.
It Tightens Your Skin
As mentioned previously, the warmth emitted by the radiofrequency energy encourages collagen induction. This means that as your fat cells are being killed, your skin is being encouraged to tighten. Since sagging skin is an almost inevitable side effect of rapid weight loss, it is great that you don’t have to worry about your skin elasticity when you get this treatment.
Also, your skin will look healthier and younger after this treatment because collagen is responsible for cellular turnover. In other words, the dead skin cells that make up the superficial layer of your skin will be replaced by new, healthy skin cells.
Your TruSculpt treatment plan will be completely tailored to your unique needs. We will target all of your areas of concern that qualify for treatment but not waste your time or money targeting other areas. Due to the small size of the applicators, your contour sculpting will be very precise so you will feel satisfied about your results.
Due to the precision with which we can burn your excess fat, your results will look completely natural. Also, your results will appear to come about naturally because your lymphatic system sweeps up and flushes out the fat cells killed during treatment over the course of several months.
In other words, all of your coworkers and loved ones will think that you are getting thinner simply due to diet and exercise. Nobody will know you received professional help achieving your dream body unless you tell them.
You will feel much more confident in your own skin once you finally achieve your desired contours. This can give you the confidence to talk to the cute girl next to you at the bar, ask for a raise, or join a new club. Also, once a lot of your subcutaneous fat is removed, your muscles will be more visible. This may motivate you to hit the gym harder and pack on even more muscle.
This fat removal method is also ideal because it is completely non-invasive. This, in addition to the relaxing heat emitted by the applicators, makes it a very soothing, pleasant treatment. Also, this fat removal method is ideal because there is no downtime required after treatment. Depending on the number of areas being treated, you may be able to come in during your lunch break and not take any time off from work.
