WHAT IS TRUSCULPT?

TruSculpt allows you to personalize your ideal body with a revolutionary non-surgical body-sculpting treatment. It’s comfortable, safe, and effective technology is clinically proven to permanently eliminate fat cells in stubborn areas around your abdomen and flanks.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE?

Because truSculpt is a customized and tailored treatment to meet individual needs, most adult men and women are a candidate. Patients should be in general good health, with focal areas of concern. There are no skin type restrictions for radiofrequency treatments with truSculpt.

WHO IS NOT A CANDIDATE?

  • Patients who are or may be pregnant.

  • Patients who have less than 1 centimeter of pinchable fat in the treatment area.

HOW LONG DOES A TREATMENT TAKE?

Procedure time depends on the size and number of treatment areas. It typically takes 15 to 30 minutes to treat the abdomen and flanks.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL BE NEEDED?

Multiple areas can be treated in as little as one 15-minute session. Additional treatments may be required to achieve the personalized results you desire.

WHAT WILL THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?

TruSculpt procedures are typically described as feeling like a hot stone massage. During treatment, the temperature of your skin will rise but remain comfortable. It’s effective, safe, and the results are even and consistent.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT?

  • Warm/pink skin in the treatment area for up to 6 hours.

  • Tingling/numbness sensation in the treatment area for up to 6 hours.

  • Increased appetite due to increased metabolic rate for the next 12-24 hours. Do not overeat!

  • Increased or frequent urination or bowel stimulation for 24-48hrs

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR TREATMENT?

  • Shave or trim hair in the treatment area 2 days prior to the day of treatment to ensure effective contact and minimize sweat build up, reducing the potential for adverse skin reactions such as burns. (Shaving areas on the day of treatment will increase skin irritation and possible side effects. It is recommended to reschedule to another day.)

  • Be well hydrated prior to and on the day of treatment to ensure a more comfortable treatment.

  • It is recommended to drink about 2-3 L or 1 gallon of water throughout the day prior to treatment and up to the treatment.

  • Do not exercise the treatment muscle group 12 hours prior to treatment time to ensure improved tolerability. Other muscle groups on the body can be exercised in full.

  • Body piercings must be removed if under or near the treatment area to avoid burns

  • Notify the clinic and provider of any/all changes to health history or medications prior to treatment, if different from intake form or last appointment.

WHAT ARE THE AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS?

  • Continue to HYDRATE after the treatment. Hydration helps flush out dead fat cells that we just treated.

  • If experiencing discomfort, use over the counter (OTC) pain meds such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen.

  • Massage the treatment area to reduce discomfort and minimize the chances of developing nodules or lumps

  • If nodules or lumps develop:

    • Gently massage the areas twice daily for 2-5 minutes until they resolve

    • These may develop up to 72 hours post-treatment and typically resolve over several weeks

  • Do not overeat.

  • Do not ice the treatment area.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Results are visible after just one treatment, with maximum results seen after 8-12 weeks. 1-3 sessions are recommended to achieve desired outcomes. Additional treatments may be required to achieve the personalized results you desire.
