• Fighting Stubborn Fat Cells with TruSculpt 3D

    on Feb 1st, 2019

Do you have pockets of stubborn fat that won’t go away no matter how much you exercise or watch what you eat? These areas can be frustrating. If you’re tired of hiding hard to tone spots under clothing, it’s time to try truSculpt 3D. Dr. Pastorek uses this state-of-the-art system to give your body the boost it needs to remove fat naturally and keep it off for good. Here are the essentials you need to know about the truSculpt 3D system to decide if it’s the right treatment for you.

truSculpt 3D explained

Fat reduction treatment has come along way from conventional surgical methods. The truSculpt 3D is a nonsurgical treatment that uses monopolar radiofrequency technology. This is merely a fancy way of saying that truSculpt 3D uses a single hand-held wand that delivers radio waves to the fat that lies deep under your skin. The waves heat the fat to break it down, which allows your body to remove it from your system.

The radiofrequency waves also stimulate your body to form collagen, a protein that promotes elasticity in your skin, which creates a smooth-looking surface and minimizes any dimpling. The truSculpt 3D system reshapes the dimension of your skin, reduces depth, and improves the definition of hard to tone areas.

Benefits of truSculpt 3D

The truSculpt 3D system is the latest technology available and has proven results. In as little as one treatment, patients have achieved up to a 24% reduction of fat cells. If that isn’t enough to get you excited about a truSculpt 3D treatment, it might help to know that there are no needles or surgical procedures involved, and you can return to your normal daily activities right away.

How does a truSculpt 3D treatment feel?

When you come to our office, you will be shown to a room where you’ll lie down on a comfortable table. We will only expose the area of your body that is being treated. You will feel the hand-held wand touch your skin throughout the treatment. The temperature of your skin will get warmer, but you won’t feel any discomfort. Some patients have described the sensation you perceive as being similar to a hot stone massage.

How many treatments will I need?

You might need more than one treatment depending on the amount of fat you want to get rid of and how many areas you want to be treated. Dr. Pastorek and our care team will create a customized treatment plan that addresses all of your needs.

Results are noticeable after just one treatment. However, your body continues to flush out the fat over the next several weeks following the procedure. Optimal results are seen in about 12 weeks.

Is there really no downtime?

It’s true - there’s no downtime. After the procedure, you might notice feeling flushed and warm for about an hour. Your skin may be little sensitive to touch for a day or two after the treatment. However, you can return to your normal activities including school, work, and exercise routines immediately. This is one of the best benefits of the truSculpt 3D system.
