TruSculpt™ is the first RF Non-invasive procedure to give long-lasting surgical type results, previously only available through cosmetic surgery. Using radio frequencies, the practitioner deep-heats tissue over large areas of the body.
In only 2 treatments on average, patients can quickly see long-lasting results in their appearance, such as smaller mass, tighter skin and less dimpling. TruSculpt™ can be used on any area where fat deposits can accumulate, such as the neck (“turkey neck”), under the arms, around the buttocks, thighs, love handles, back, or abdomen.
The TruSculpt™ Session
A hand-held electrode is passed over a portion of skin, and a gentle pulsation of radio frequencies are emitted. Each pulse lasts about 4 minutes, and the entire process can take less than an hour. These RFs penetrate and gently heat the skin’s deepest layers while leaving the epidermis cool. This is an extremely tolerable treatment, as the outer temperature can be adjusted manually for comfort and there are also no harmful side effects or downtime from the procedure.
The raised temperature stimulates cells, targeting areas of fat, and creates apoptosis or slow fat cell death. The fat eliminating process begins with the truSculpt treatment, but once activated it continues on its own for months. After about 8 weeks, a follow-up visit and application is usually recommended to complete the procedure.
Studies have shown that heating the subcutaneous tissues at 45° C stimulates fat cells, resulting in a 60% loss in viability. TruSculpt is safe for all skin types and can be used for men and women. A good candidate for the procedure is someone with a BMI of 30 or less, but a consultation at Winter Park Laser will determine if it’s right for you. (Persons with pacemakers, tumors, or metallic implants cannot be treated.)
