What is truSculpt 3D? Mar 31, 2020

I want to lose some extra belly fat, but what exactly is truSculpt 3d?

truSculpt 3D is a non-surgical treatment for fat reduction that helps patients to lose unwanted fat quickly and safely. truSculpt 3D is produced by Cutera, and is an upgraded version of their original body sculpting treatment: truSculpt. truSculpt 3D has shown fat reduction of up to 24% in one treatment, according to Amy Taub, MD.

How does truSculpt 3D work?

truSculpt 3D is a monopolar radio frequency system that delivers targeted sculpting of body fat with no downtime. truSculpt 3D decreases the circumference fat cells making them appear smaller. truSculpt does this by using radio frequency to produce therapeutic temperatures that shrinks a person’s adipose tissue (also known as fat). The truSculpt 3D process is efficient, safe, and comfortable.

The truSculpt 3D system is clinically proven to help a patient get rid of stubborn fat cells permanently, especially in areas where the fat cells have been resistant to diet and exercise.

What happens to the fat during truSculpt 3D?

During truSculpt 3D, monopolar radio frequency waves safely penetrate the patient’s skin in way that treats the entire fat layer, all the way from the surface skin through the fat and stopping at the muscle. This process, which is unique to truSculpt 3D, damages the targeted fat cells, which are then slowly removed and excreted by your body naturally. About 12 weeks after truSculpt treatment, patients see a fat reduction of about 24 percent.

Is truSculpt the same as CoolSculpting®️?

According to Amy Forman Taub, M.D., truSculpt 3D clinical investigator and director of Chicago-based Advanced Dermatology, truSculpt 3D offers advantages over rival CoolSculpting. Dr. Taub conducted a study treating patients with a single truSculpt 3D treatment. Using controlled ultrasound imaging and photography, her team measured fat thickness reduction and found results from the ultrasound measurements and photography were in line with other noninvasive body sculpting technologies.

There is no head-to-head study comparing CoolSculpting to truSculpt 3D, but Dr. Taub –  who has both devices at her practice – offers a few observations. While CoolSculpting treatment doesn’t make laxity worse in the area being treated, truSculpt 3D goes one step further and improves skin tone in the treatment area. According to Dr. Taub, this could be considered an excellent treatment for fat and laxity.

“Radiofrequency treatments for fat have failed in the past due to patient discomfort,” she writes. Radiofrequency (RF) treatments are most commonly used to treat nerve damage and reduce pain. Owing to what goes on during such treatments – electrical currents being passed through sections of the body – side effects like pain, discomfort, and numbness can occur. Those side effects occur for nerve treatments, much smaller areas than fat deposits.

Both truSculpt and CoolSculpt use non-invasive procedures, the former using RF energy and the latter using cold temperatures. The advantage of truSculpt, however, is that some patients who might experience adverse effects to the cold temperatures generated by CoolSculpt (such as those affected by Raynaud’s syndrome) can use it safely.

The rise in popularity of body sculpting can be attributed to two main factors: improved non-surgical treatment results and a population that values investing in themselves. The truSculpt 3D body sculpting device is ideal for patients and practitioners alike. The procedure requires no anesthesia, little time in the clinic, and has little recovery time afterwards. In addition, it targets highly specific areas for maximum results.

What happens during a truSculpt session?

The treatment itself is short, a simple 15-minute session of your medispa technician running the handheld truSculpt device over the areas you want targeted. Clinically proven results in the most common treatment areas—the belly and love-handles—can be seen in as little as 6 to 8 weeks post-treatment.

What is Targeted RF Energy?

Using radiofrequency (RF) technology, which alternates between high and low frequency waves, the truSculpt 3D system at Premier Vein & Vascular penetrates deep to break up the entire fat layer. This unique process allows us to maintain a comfortable surface temperature for the patient while the waves go deep under the skin, heating up and breaking down fat cells. They are then naturally excreted through the body in the weeks after the treatment, leaving the targeted fat area flatter and tighter.

What results can I expect after getting truSculpt at Premier Vein?

truSculpt 3D ensures patients are comfortable while consistently achieving results. While the heat generated by the currents can be a little uncomfortable, the device is designed to ensure it never crosses a threshold and becomes intolerable. The systems uses a proprietary closed-loop feedback mechanism to monitor skin temperature during treatment. This ensures the temperatures stay at therapeutic levels, akin to a hot stone massage.

truSculpt 3D’s unique design eliminates potential hot spots, delivering uniform heat to the targeted area with a patented handpiece. It not only enhances patient safety, but ensures that your patients get results. Patients can get the look they want with a comfortable, fast, and non-invasive procedure.

With truSculpt 3D, your clinician can eliminate unwanted fat from large and small areas. The system works well in hard to reach areas, such as back fat, neck and chin fat, and belly and love-handle fat. The precise nature of it all makes truSculpt 3D the optimal method for eliminating unwanted fat deposits and contouring your body.
