Why truSculpt™ Is One of the Top Choices for Fat Reduction

There are just some parts of the body that hold onto stubborn fat no matter how we try to target them through diet and exercise. The lower abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, and back are amongst the most challenging places to reach. The cosmetic industry offers options like liposuction to help remove those stubborn pockets of fat, but the procedure often comes with significant downtime and recovery.

That is why truSculpt™— a new, non-invasive body contouring treatment is becoming one of the leading choices in fat reduction.

At Desert Med Aesthetics in Palm Springs, CA, Dr. Doriana Cosgrove is proud to be the first and only doctor in the Indian wells community to offer truSculpt to help patients reduce local body fat and temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite.

What is truSculpt?

TruSculpt is a breakthrough, non-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency and massage to help break apart fat cells and flush them naturally from the body. The RF pulses are administered into the patient’s skin through a handpiece and held there for up to four minutes. Once the pulses are completed in one area, the device is moved to the next targeted location. The total procedure can last up to an hour.

What To Expect During Treatment

truSculpt treatments are designed with patient comfort in mind. The typical sensation patients experience is mild heat at the treatment site. Your doctor can adjust the temperature depending upon your comfort level, but typically no pain medication, topical anesthetics, or cooling gels are needed. Also, because the procedure is non-invasive, patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after their appointment. Often, patients will even return to work after their session.

When Can Patients Start to See Results?

After a truSculpt session, patients can see visible results as soon as four weeks, with maximum results taking up to 12 weeks. This is due to the body’s response to the RF pulses. It takes time for the fat cells to break down and be processed naturally from the body. Results may vary patient-to-patient depending on the areas being treated and the number of treatments administered.

An added benefit is that truSculpt is designed to be a safe and comfortable procedure, which means that there are little known side effects associated with it aside from redness, swelling, and mild tenderness around the treated areas. These conditions usually resolve themselves within a few hours.
