Located in Hamilton, ON, Dr. Rahul Shukla and the team at drs skincare are excited and honored to be a Centre of Excellence for truSculpt® 3D, a non-invasive fat reduction and body sculpting treatment. Now you can get rid of those stubborn pockets of fat.
What is truSculpt® 3D?
The Cutera truSculpt® 3D system uses a multi-dimensional approach to circumferential reduction and body sculpting. Precise temperatures are delivered to the subcutaneous fat layer. The unique delivery gives patients effective, efficient results in a shorter treatment time without surgery or liposuction.
What does truSculpt® 3D do?
The Cutera truSculpt® 3D system utilizes radio frequency (RF) technology. Featuring a closed-loop temperature feedback mechanism, subcutaneous fat cells are consistently and uniformly heated. Fat cells are broken down and disposed of by the body over a period of 3 months. Unlike coolsculpting, truSculpt® 3D is able to tighten skin and help reduce cellulite in addition to reducing pockets of fat by using heat energy.
This approach achieves truly 3D results as it is:
- Targeted – A specific area is treated.
- Repeatable – The results are consistently achieved.
- Uniform – The fat cells are heated and destroyed evenly across the treatment area.
Patients who had this treatment have experienced up to a 24% reduction in fat thickness in a single treatment!
Typical areas treated
A variety of areas can be treated using truSculpt® 3D from the neck down. Most commonly, people are looking to treat the abdomen; however, we commonly treat pockets of fat such as “muffin tops” or “love handles” to improve contour as well.
Often, we see women looking to lose weight or fat after a baby. A list of common areas treated include:
- “Bra” fat or “Back fat”
- Abdomen and or “Muffin Tops”
- “Love handles”
We are able to customize treatments for a variety of areas depending on your concerns.
What to expect during and after treatment
Treatment is typically one to two hours in duration with truSculpt® 3D, depending on the areas treated. During treatment, you will notice the area treated becoming warm as the applicator glides across the skin. Most people notice mild to minimal discomfort, and no topical anesthetic is required.
Unlike with liposuction, there is minimal to no downtime after the procedure with people continuing their regular activities immediately after treatment. At times, the patient may notice bumps or nodules in the treated area that resolve over weeks.
Often, one treatment is enough to obtain the desired results, but sometimes more treatments may be needed.
Remember, body sculpting procedures do not replace a healthy diet and exercise. Instead, these treatments complement your healthy lifestyle and remove the stubborn fat that remains.
