As COVID continues to force us to re-prioritize our daily lives, many of us have found that our body goals have dropped down on the list. A little less activity and a little more home cooking has many men and women noticing more fat in their trouble zones and less definition on their body.
The good news is that we’re all going through it. The even better news is there is a quick and simple non-surgical treatment to help fix those hard to burn off areas while continuing to wait for gym access.
What TruSculpt 3D Can Do
TruSculpt® 3D is one of the newer non-invasive fat reduction treatments on the market. Not only does it work to reduce fat, but it also comes with a few other perks.
TruSculpt Can Melt Fat
TruSculpt uses radio frequency energy to heat the targeted fat and creates adipocyte apoptosis, which is a fancy phrase meaning controlled fat cell death. This innovative treatment essentially melts the targeted fat and the body’s natural elimination system does the rest.
TruSculpt Can Address Cellulite
Another added benefit of truSculpt is its ability to temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite. Cellulite is caused when bands of tissue called fascia pull the skin down and squeeze out the fat pockets, which create the dimpled appearance.
When truSculpt treatment is applied to an area where cellulite is present, the treatment effectively melts away some of the surrounding fat, which helps to smooth out the dimpled texture.
TruSculpt Can Improve Skin Elasticity
A major reason people seek truSculpt over other non-surgical body contouring treatments is its ability to improve skin laxity while melting away fat. Sagging skin is a common concern for many people looking to reduce fat, and truSculpt provides them with the added bonus of skin tightening to help avoid these problems.
The heat used to help eliminate fat also helps stimulate collagen and elastin production — the essential proteins necessary for maintaining good skin elasticity.
What TruSculpt Can’t Do
While truSculpt is a wonder treatment for those wanting to refine their figures, there are some things it can’t do.
TruSculpt Can’t Help You Lose Weight
There is a difference between fat reduction vs. weight loss. TruSculpt is a fat reduction treatment, and candidates typically see the best results when they at their ideal weight.
TruSculpt is a body contouring device that can help sculpt and shape your curves where exercise and diet just aren’t working, but it is not intended for weight loss.
TruSculpt Can’t Prevent Weight Gain
Another “can’t” to remember is that while truSculpt can reduce the amount of fat in the treated area, it won’t stop the other fat cells in your body from growing. Maintaining a healthy weight and adopting a healthy lifestyle can help you keep your results.
How Long Before You See Results
It’s common for non-surgical body contouring treatments to take several weeks to several months before you can experience your full results. But what extra time you’ll invest in being patient, you’ll be able to use living your life.
Unlike surgical procedures that require you to cut out a period of time recovering, truSculpt 3D requires zero downtime. Immediately following your truSculpt treatment, you’re able to return to work and other activities.
Most people who receive truSculpt treatment see an improvement in around 3 to 4 weeks and continue to experience continued improvement for up to 3 months.
If you’ve noticed a few extra curves while adjusting to our current restrictions, truSculpt 3D is a great option to help you get back on track.
