Is truSculpt Worth It? Yes – Here’s Why

Thanks to truSculpt, it’s possible for patients to eliminate stubborn fat without the use of surgery and other invasive techniques. By using radiofrequency energy to heat fat cells beneath the skin’s surface, truSculpt offers a unique treatment option for sculpting the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks and more. Keep reading as we answer common questions about truSculpt and explain why this procedure is worth considering!

How long do truSculpt results last?

The results from truSculpt aren’t visible immediately, so patients shouldn’t expect to notice a difference in their appearance overnight. Some patients may notice improvements in their figure within a few days, but most of the results from truSculpt develop in the weeks following treatment. This is because it takes the body several weeks to fully remove the treated fat cells. Generally, full results will be visible about 12 weeks (3 months) after treatment is performed. These results can be permanent, which we’ll expand on in the sections below.

Does truSculpt burn fat?

In a way, truSculpt does burn fat – but not like the body does naturally. With natural fat loss, the body burns fat for energy, which will slim the figure over time as small amounts of fat are repeatedly burned. With truSculpt, radiofrequency energy is used to heat or “burn” fat cells. Fat cells are heated until they are destroyed, at which point the body’s lymphatic system safely removes them from the body.

How effective is truSculpt?

The truSculpt treatment is highly effective because it can directly target fat cells with a high level of accuracy and safety. There is minimal, if any, downtime, so patients can return to their usual activities immediately after treatment. On average, patients can expect about a 24% reduction in body fat in the treated area. Patients usually only need 1-2 treatment sessions to achieve these results, making truSculpt much more effective than other fat reduction treatments.

Is truSculpt permanent?

When truSculpt destroys fat cells, they are permanently removed from the body. This means that fat removed with truSculpt treatments will not come back. However, truSculpt does not prevent future weight gain. Patients with poor diet or exercise habits may gain weight in the future, and it’s possible that this weight gain causes fat to reaccumulate in previous treatment areas. Therefore, the best way to ensure your truSculpt results last as long as possible is to stick to a nutritious diet and get regular exercise.

With the benefits outlined above, many patients agree that truSculpt is well worth it. To determine if you can benefit from truSculpt treatments and discuss a personalized treatment plan, contact us today to schedule a consultation at McRae MD Medical Laser Center.
