TruSculpt 3D Body Contouring

What is truSculpt 3D body sculpting?

The truSculpt 3D body sculpting treatment by Cutera® uses a specialized hand-piece to deliver therapeutic levels of radiofrequency (RF) energy directly into the fat cells that form your most persistent problem areas.

Without affecting your skin tissue, this precision RF energy penetrates the targeted fat cells and superheats them, which damages their durability and interferes with their ability to function.

Once your lymphatic system recognizes that these cells are beyond repair, it begins to permanently flush them from your body. As the process unfolds over the course of a few weeks, you’ll see a tighter, slimmer body — all without diet and exercise.   

Is truSculpt 3D right for me?

If you’re at a healthy body weight but you have areas of persistent fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, truSculpt 3D may be the ideal solution: It provides a targeted, repeatable, and uniform way to help you slim and shape the most common trouble spots.

Whether you have love handles, a muffin top, lower belly fat, excess thigh fat, or any other pocket of persistent fat that you just can’t seem to get rid of on your own, truSculpt 3D is a safe, effective, and relatively quick way to get the body you’ve always wanted.  

If you’re still in the process of dropping extra pounds, you’ll want to reach your target body weight before you receive the treatment. Once you’re there, you can use truSculpt 3D to complete the process and spot-reduce through your waist, hips, belly, or thighs as-needed.

What is the truSculpt 3D procedure like?

As a non-invasive procedure, truSculpt 3D doesn’t require incisions or anesthesia. The treatment is safe and effective on all skin types, and many patients report that it feels similar to having a hot stone massage.   

Although the amount of time it takes to complete a truSculpt 3D session varies depending on the size of the area you’re targeting, it takes about an hour to treat your entire midsection, including your belly and your flanks.

While some people experience slight redness and an elevated skin temperature just after the procedure, these side effects are minor and usually subside quickly.

You won’t need to recover after your truSculpt 3D session, which means you can resume your normal activities immediately afterwards.  

How many treatments will I need?

Unlike other types of non-invasive fat reduction treatments, most people only need one truSculpt 3D treatment to get the results they’re looking for.

While you should begin to see a visible reduction of fat a week or two after the procedure, your results will continue to improve as the weeks go on and your body continues to flush the targeted cells.

Optimal results typically occur about 12 weeks after treatment, once your body has had enough time to process and eliminate all of the damaged fat cells.
