No matter how hard you try, certain body parts tend to hang onto fat stores, even if you’ve successfully lost lots of weight. Genetics can be cruel that way, but we have a safe and simple way to finish off your weight loss journey and smooth out the bumps and bulges caused by stubborn fat.
At Woodlands Aesthetics Center in The Woodlands, Texas, our team of medical specialists offers a solution to diet- and exercise-resistant fat pockets — truSculpt® by Cutera®. As part of our comprehensive body contouring services, truSculpt addresses multiple body issues in as little as one treatment. Here’s what you need to know.
There was a time when the only way to get rid of persistent fat cells was to undergo liposuction, a surgical procedure that vacuums out the fat. But medical advances have given you another option.
The radiofrequency (RF) technology in truSculpt has been around for many years, and is FDA-approved, safe, and effective with no side effects. During this noninvasive treatment, we direct the monopolar RF energy into your skin and muscle tissues, where it targets and gently heats up the fat cells. No incisions, no anesthesia, no down time.
When you come in for your truSculpt treatment, you relax in our spa-like environment while we hover the handheld truSculpt device over your treatment area. You may feel a slight warming sensation, but no pain. Many of our patients tell us it feels like a hot stone massage, so expect to relax and enjoy your session.
You’ll be in and out in about 15-30 minutes, or it may take up to an hour if you have larger areas treated. You may or may not notice some mild, temporary redness for a few hours, but you’re free to go about your day as usual.
The thermal energy destroys the cells and renders them useless — they can longer store fat and swell up. In fact, they die, and your body gradually processes them as waste. And once they’re gone, they’re gone forever. We can zap about 24% of your fat cells per session.
You won’t notice the results immediately because it takes time — about three months — for your body to flush away the damaged fat cells and change your contours for good.
The truSculpt technology can also work on your muscles to improve tone and strength. With truSculpt flex, we can target the muscles underneath your fat layers with multi-directional energy that causes them to contract and relax rapidly at the pace of about 54,000 contractions per treatment session.
We can “work out” up to eight different areas in each 45-minute treatment session. It may take up to four sessions to produce your desired results, but once you’ve reached your goal — in about 8-12 weeks — you’ll have toned and sculpted abs, obliques, buttocks, and legs.
If you’ve put a lot of time and energy into losing weight, but your figure still has flaws, truSculpt can finish the job for you. To find out if it’s right for you, or to schedule your first truSculpt appointment, call or click to book a session, and finish strong.
