Your body can store a network of fat “pockets,” some of which are more difficult to remove than others. Even if you have a focused exercise regime, low-cal diet and stay active most of the time, these fat cells can be highly resistant to burn off. If you’re considering finding a body sculpting or body contouring treatment, it’s important to make sure you find a procedure that works best for you. It’s also as important that you seek out the right laser and aesthetic clinic and staff who have experience and the credentials to get the job right the first time and thereafter. If you’re interested in “tightening” different parts of their body (in other words, removing fatty areas) and want to have experience on your side, visit Agave Laser & Aesthetic Clinic in San Antonio. We know our tried and true truSculpt 3D treatment will be one of the best technique for your needs.
What exactly is truSculpt 3D? TruSculpt 3D is a non-invasive, monopolar radio frequency (RF) technique which use a hand-held device to reduce fat tissue in your body by therapeutically heating fat cells until they’re eliminated and naturally processed out your body. This procedure is clinically proven to be safe and effective in removing persistent fat cells permanently. Not only does truSculpt 3D selectively reduce targeted fat areas, it helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite as well. Overall fat layer thickness may be reduced by up to 24 percent after only one 60-minute treatment (which is more effective than many other body sculpting procedures). Results are visible after the first treatment and maximum results are noticeable after 12 weeks. Additional treatments may be needed for you to achieve the results you desire. Plus, truSculpt 3D usually doesn’t require any recovery time after the procedure is completed. As soon as you’re finished, you can walk right out into living your life again.
What does 3D stand for? TruSculpt 3D is a non-surgical, multi-dimensional approach which gives you the power to 1) Reshape Dimension, 2) Improve Definition and 3) Reduce Overall Depth. This innovative fat reduction treatment provides a highly effective and completely safe way to permanently help restore your shape and reduce fat in those hard-to-reach areas of your body— not just your stomach like most other techniques. You can have up to four trouble spots treated during your first appointment, making it an easy and painless treatment that can be conveniently accomplished during an average lunch hour. There’s no tugging, bruising or anesthesia involved which means you can schedule your procedure when it’s convenient for you.
Does truSculpt 3D produce better results than say… Coolsculpt? Yes and no. Both utilize different procedures which attempt to succeed at the same objective – removing fat. Coolsculpt also does this by a non-invasive procedure (like truSculpt 3D), but the difference is in the way it functions. A Coolsculpting machine is used to pull fat within the skin into a device shaped like a cup. The device that holds the skin which then receives a cold treatment (thus, the name) and the fat cells within the skin are frozen, die and eventually eliminated from the body over a span of about two months. This procedure works best where skin can be pinched so the fat can be pulled into the device. Most patients feel an icy discomfort for the first 10 minutes or so, but eventually the skin starts to feel numb temporarily and most patients can resume their normal activities after the treatment has finished.
TruSculpt 3D operates differently to achieve the same results and then some. As previously mentioned, the truSculpt 3D device delivers monopolar radio frequency energy that heats up fat cells. These fat cells start to shrink during and after the treatment and are then discarded from the body naturally over a shorter amount of time. TruSculpt 3D also has the advantage of covering more areas of the body than Coolsculpt because it doesn’t need to grab onto loose areas of skin and the device is much smaller and hand-held allowing for better maneuverability. Therefore, areas like the underarms, shoulders, etc. can be treated by truSculpt 3D without much problem whereas a Coolsculpt device may be difficult to use for those areas. The heat caused by truSculpt 3D may cause mild discomfort and sweating, but the device settings can be adjusted to satisfy the patient.
