If diet and exercise alone aren’t giving you the results you want, you may still be able to get the figure you’ve always desired. Norman J. Pastorek, MD, and his team can give you the shape you want with a noninvasive truSculpt® 3D procedure.
What is truSculpt 3D?
TruSculpt 3D is a procedure that employs radiofrequency energy to heat and effectively split up fat cells in challenging areas, including your thighs, upper arms, buttocks and abdomen. And what’s more, once the fat cells have been destroyed, they will not regenerate. Your body eliminates them permanently.
How does truSculpt 3D work?
During your treatment, Dr. Pastorek uses a radiofrequency wand to break down fat cells in the targeted areas. This takes approximately 15-45 minutes. After the treatment, your body removes the cells by way of your lymphatic system. Then, over time, your body produces more collagen and elastin to help give your body a more chiseled appearance.
How can I prepare for treatment?
Preparation is simple. Prior to your scheduled appointment, shave the area that will be treated and take out any piercings. You should also refrain from consuming anything caffeinated the day of your appointment as caffeine may intensify the level of heat you feel from the wand.
Will I experience any discomfort during my treatment?
TruSculpt 3D is minimally invasive, and no anesthesia or pain medication is needed during treatment. Patients often liken the experience to a hot stone massage. When you receive your treatment, your skin temperature will rise, but Dr. Pastorek will always make sure the temperature is not too high. Your comfort and care is his first priority. After your procedure, you could experience some redness in the treatment area, but this usually resolves in a few days.
What can I expect after treatment?
You can expect to start seeing results within three weeks, but it could take up to 90 days for complete results. It usually takes 2-4 truSculpt sessions to achieve an optimal outcome, and you should maintain a healthy eating and exercise regimen to retain your results.
