Even when you’re committed to the healthiest diet and exercise plan, stubborn areas of fat sometimes refuse to budge. Why? Because all fat cells are not created equally.
Fat cells have two types of receptors: alpha and beta. Alpha receptors discourage the burning of fat, while beta receptors act as a trigger that breaks theses cells down into fuel for energy. If a fat cell has too many more alpha receptors than beta, it grows resistant to diet and exercise.
Your fat cell distribution is also genetic, meaning you could be predisposed to having higher levels of fat cells in certain areas of your body, like your tummy. And, unfortunately, those fat cells won’t budge no matter how diligently you watch your diet or exercise.
With truSculpt 3D, you can still you achieve the figure you’ve always wanted despite alpha receptors or genetics working against you.
TruSculpt 3D is an FDA-cleared device that destroys fat cells by using radiofrequency energy. When your fat cell is heated to a specific temperature, it dies and begins to break down. Over the next few weeks, your body begins to absorb these cells and then eliminate them through your lymphatic system.
The unique design of truSculpt 3D ensures customized and controlled deep heating to reach the fatty tissue of your skin, disrupting and damaging the fat cells permanently. This innovative procedure treats fat deposits in hard-to-tone areas, such as your:
In addition to eliminating fat cells for good, the warming technology of truSculpt 3D also encourages collagen and elastin production in the treatment area, giving you firmer skin that appears more toned and sculpted than before your session.
Little preparation is required for truSculpt treatments. Simply shave the area, remove any piercings, and avoid caffeine to ensure optimal results.
During your truSculpt 3D procedure, Dr. Pastorek customizes your session to your sensitivities and fat-burning goals. As you lie back and relax, he applies the handheld device to your trouble spot in a smooth and gliding motion. TruSculpt creates a warming sensation in the area similar to a hot rock treatment, but pain relievers aren’t required and the customizable heat settings guarantee your comfort the whole time.
Because truSculpt technology is optimized to deliver higher temperatures over a longer period, you can expect to see up to a 24% reduction in fat in large or small areas from a single hour of treatment. To have your entire body ready for swimsuit season, you can treat up to four areas during a single session.
TruSculpt treatments take 15-45 minutes. For maximum results, Dr. Pastorek might recommend two to four treatments.
Following your truSculpt treatment, you might experience minor redness from the applied heat, but this fades within an hour. There’s no discomfort associated with truSculpt treatments, and you can resume normal activities immediately.
You’ll see truSculpt’s results for yourself over 6-12 weeks as those destroyed fat cells begin to break down and are flushed from your body. As production of collagen and elastin increases in the area, you’re skin’s tone and texture also improve.
To maintain your results, use truSculpt in combination with a healthy diet and exercise.
