As you look toward the warmer months of summer, are you excited or a bit apprehensive? While we believe your body is beautiful as it is, we also believe you deserve to determine what makes you feel great about your appearance. If even with routine exercise and healthy eating you still struggle with stubborn areas of fat, consider truSculpt®. This noninvasive, personalized body-sculpting treatment can help you achieve that sleek look you desire in time for your summer vacation or afternoons on the beach.
At the office of Tim Martin, MD in Abilene, TX, we’re committed to helping you look your best.
How truSculpt works
The truSculpt system uses radiofrequency, or RF, energy to penetrate deep below your skin’s surface, targeting fat cells in desired areas. This energy damages and kills the cells, and they are eliminated by your body’s lymphatic system over the course of about 12 weeks from the time of treatment.
Individual results vary, but on average, you can expect 24% of fat cells in the treatment area to diminish after a single treatment. Each treatment takes about 60 minutes in our office, during which you don’t need to do anything but relax.
Areas truSculpt can treat include most body parts that tend to show more during summer months, including:
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
- Upper arms
If you have one “trouble spot,” you can have only that area treated. You can also opt to have two or more areas treated — on the same day, or at separate sessions.
How truSculpt feels
If you’ve ever had a hot stone massage, you’re familiar with the sensation you’ll likely feel during truSculpt treatment. Many of our clients describe it that way, and the treatment can feel just as relaxing. While the RF energy heats up your fat cells, your skin will remain at a comfortable temperature. And you won’t have to worry about lingering issues, such as pain that often follows more invasive procedures, like surgery. You can go straight back to your usual activities after your truSculpt treatment.
Making the most of your results
You’ll basically be good to go after your truSculpt treatment, whether you decide on one session or a series. That said, and even though the fat cells will never return, maintaining healthy lifestyle habits can go far in making the most of your results. Be sure to eat a well-balanced diet that emphasizes nutritious foods, such as vegetables, fruits, fish, and whole grains. Meanwhile, prioritize sufficient sleep and engage in moderately intense exercise most days. If stubborn fat accumulates in other areas of your body down the line, consider scheduling another truSculpt treatment.
