How Quickly Does TruSculpt Work?

Just about everyone has a problem spot or two that simply won’t shape up, no matter how hard they diet and exercise. Did you know that there’s a non-surgical treatment that can hone in on those problem areas, getting rid of them for good? TruSculpt ID triggers your body to dispose of unwanted fat in problem zones. Patients at Novo Med Spa in Frisco, TX, love the long-lasting results this treatment offers.

How Quickly Does TruSculpt Work?

This treatment uses monopolar radiofrequency to deeply heat tissue in the problem zone, breaking down fat cells and tightening the overlying skin. The body’s lymphatic system will then naturally dispose of those fat cells, a process that can take several weeks. Patients see their results develop gradually anywhere from four weeks to three months after treatment. This amazing treatment often reduces fat by 24 percent after just one treatment.

Additional sessions can be scheduled at six to eight-week intervals. Once we’ve had a chance to evaluate your body and talk with you about what you’re hoping to accomplish, our team will make a recommendation about how many treatments you may need to resolve your concerns.

Will My Results Be Permanent?

Yes. This treatment gets rid of unwanted fat in the treatment area permanently. Trusculpt won’t prevent you from developing fat elsewhere in your body in the future, though, so patients should continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

What Parts of the Body Does This Work On?

This treatment is most commonly applied to the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, flanks, and back. But it can be used almost anywhere on the body.

What Should I Expect From Treatment?

These treatments are easy, non-invasive, and nothing to worry about. You’ll be asked to remove any jewelry or piercings from the treatment area. We’ll then place a handpiece against your skin and deliver targeted pulses of radiofrequency. We’ll work methodically across your treatment area, a process that can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. Patients often describe the sensation as being similar to a hot stone massage.

What Is Recovery Like?

Because anesthesia is not needed, there is no recovery period needed, and patients can return immediately to work and other scheduled activities. The treatment area may be tender or flushed after your appointment, but this will subside.


Am I a Good Candidate?

You’re in Good Health

Candidates should be in good overall mental and physical health. Individuals should not be pregnant or trying to get pregnant, and they should not have metal implants, a pacemaker, or an internal defibrillator.

You Want To Sculpt Your Body

This treatment is for patients who are in pretty good shape and are at or near their goal weight, but they still have problem areas that have proven unresponsive to diet, exercise, and other aspects of a healthy lifestyle. This treatment helps them tackle those problem spots in particular. It’s a precise approach to body sculpting that a regular diet and exercise plan can’t achieve.

While this treatment can help address problems spots and refine your overall silhouette, it won’t help you shed a significant amount of weight. If weight loss is your primary goal, a traditional weight loss plan or bariatric surgery may best accomplish your goals.

You Have a Body Mass Index of 38 or Lower

This treatment is most effectively performed on candidates with a body mass index of 38 or lower. Some other body sculpting systems require a body mass index of 30 or lower, so TruSculpt is an option for slightly heavier patients.

You Can Maintain Your Silhouette

Patients who see the best long-term results with this treatment system can maintain their new look through a healthy lifestyle. Staying active and eating healthy foods will help you avoid gaining weight elsewhere in your body.

What Advantages Are Associated With This Treatment?

It’s a Customizable Treatment

One of the great things about this treatment is that it can be performed all over the body, making it a good solution for patients with a variety of concerns. Whether you want to significantly tone down unwanted fat in the abdominal region or you want just a little slimming through the thighs and upper arms, this treatment can help. Once we understand what you’re hoping to accomplish, we will design a custom treatment plan just for you.

It Offers Natural Results

Because your problem zones will slim down gradually in the weeks after treatment, your results will appear very natural. You’ll never look as though you went and had a cosmetic treatment performed. The improvement in your figure will be noticeable, but it will look like you’ve simply been taking great care of yourself.

It Won’t Leave Loose Skin Behind

It’s frustrating when you finally shed unwanted fat, only to have loose skin left in its place. Fortunately, that won’t happen with this treatment. This body sculpting treatment focuses on eradicating small amounts of unwanted fat, so the change in the body’s shape is usually not significant enough to leave loose skin behind.

In addition, the warmth associated with this treatment’s radiofrequency energy has a tightening effect on the skin, leaving it smooth, tight, and youthful in appearance.

It’s Convenient

If you’re looking for a no-fuss, non-surgical approach to body shaping, this treatment is ideal. The non-invasive nature of this treatment, and the fact that it can be performed during a short appointment in our office, make it easy to improve the contours of your body.

It Can Help You Feel Great About Your Body

Many of the patients who come in for treatments have struggled with stubborn problem zones for years. It feels amazing to finally beat back those problem areas and achieve the silhouette you’ve long been working toward. Once you’ve had this treatment, your clothes will fit better, you’ll look like the best version of yourself, and you’ll feel more self-confident. You’ll have a body you can be proud of.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is This a Safe Treatment?

Yes. This treatment has been approved by the FDA and has been widely and safely used.

How Does This Compare to Liposuction?

Tattoos do not pose a problem with this treatment. Even when positioned directly over a tattoo, the device we use will not distort the color or image.

Can I Use This on My Double Chin?

Yes, this treatment can be used on small, highly contoured parts of the body, including the area beneath the chin.

Can I Combine This With Other Treatments?

Patients often combine this treatment with other services offered by our practice. Dermal fillers, botulinum toxin injections, and laser hair removal are all popular treatments that are regularly combined into treatment plans with TruSculpt.

Yes. TruSculpt works well on all skin types and tones.

Can This Treatment Be Performed on Men?
