If you’re considering radiofrequency body contouring like truSculpt® ID, you’re probably drawn to it because it’s a noninvasive, no-downtime way to get rid of stubborn fat. Even though this gives you a way to transform your shape without injections or incisions, it’s still important to know what to expect during and after your treatment.
We can help there. Norman J. Pastorek, MD, Janice Pastorek, BSN, RN, and our team don’t just offer truSculpt ID body contouring at our offices on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in New York City and in Madison, Connecticut. We also offer patient education.
With that in mind, we want to give you a clear idea of what to expect after your truSculpt ID treatment.
This treatment works by applying radiofrequency energy to stubborn fat cells. We use it to banish fat from your:
- Under-chin area
- Upper arms
Because this body-contouring option is radiofrequency based, you don’t need to worry about any injections or incisions. Instead, the energy from the truSculpt ID system passes safely through your skin into the fat cells.
That means there’s no downtime. You don’t need to worry about taking any time off work or school to recover. In fact, plenty of people get treatment, then head straight back to their daily agency right afterward.
Perhaps even better, you don’t need to worry about any discomfort during or after your truSculpt ID treatment. The entire process — both the treatment itself and the time afterward — should be completely pain-free.
truSculpt ID doesn’t immediately get rid of the treated fat cells. Instead, it destroys them. Then, your body starts its natural process to flush out those destroyed cells. This takes some time.
Most people see their results within 3–7 weeks. Within three months, you should see the full effects.
We can offer additional truSculpt ID treatments to achieve your desired results. Usually, people see a sufficient reduction of fat if there’s an inch or less of fat when the treatment area is pinched. To address more than that, we can personalize a truSculpt ID schedule with multiple appointments.
No return of the fat
Once treated with radiofrequency energy, the fat cells your body flushes out won’t come back. TruSculpt ID permanently destroys those cells.
So, provided you maintain a healthy diet and regular exercise after truSculpt ID treatment, you can expect your results to last for the long term.
Now that you know what to expect after truSculpt ID, you can decide if it’s right for you. If you’re ready to schedule body contouring for yourself, call either of our offices or book your appointment online today.
