What Is truSculpt® 3D?
truSculpt 3D is a noninvasive body contouring system that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to break up fatty tissue, resulting in a slimmer, more toned shape in the treated area. This system can be used on most “trouble” spots, including the abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, back, and buttocks. On average, patients can see a 24% reduction in fat cells in a large treatment zone following a single session, which takes around 60 minutes.
truSculpt® 3D Vs. CoolSculpting®
Many options are now available to non-surgically reduce unwanted fat. CoolSculpting and truSculpt 3D both offer minimally invasive body contouring; however, CoolSculpting typically is a more invasive experience than truSculpt 3D. CoolSculpting uses Cryolipolysis™ to break down fatty tissue, which means freezing the treated area. truSculpt 3D’s completely noninvasive approach does not require pinching, suction, freezing, or some of the other effects associated with CoolSculpting. And yet the outcome is often similar, with around 20% or more fat reduction in the area. Since the truSculpt 3D device glides across the skin, it is also easier to achieve circumferential reduction, something CoolSculpting’s targeted approach struggles to do. For these reasons and others, Dr. Hossein Bagshahi and our entire team have opted to provide truSculpt 3D as our preferred non-surgical body contouring technique.
Who Is a Good Candidate for truSculpt® 3D?
If you are frustrated by uneven results with traditional diet and exercise, you may a be a good candidate for truSculpt 3D. This system is designed to help reduce areas of stubborn fatty tissue that can be resistant to healthy habits. You should also be in good general health and have reasonable expectations for the outcome. Additionally, if you lost a significant amount of weight from diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, truSculpt 3D can help tighten mildly loose skin and address pockets of fatty tissue without the need for plastic surgery. During your initial consultation, Dr. Bagshahi and our team will review your concerns and anatomic needs to evaluate if this or another approach can optimize your results.
What Is truSculpt® 3D Treatment Like?
One of the many benefits of the truSculpt 3D treatment is the comfortable patient experience. RF energy is delivered into the treated area, warming the fat cells and causing them to break down. The heat is targeted at the fat cells, so you should only feel a gentle warming sensation, much like a hot stone massage, as the handheld device slides back and forth over the zone of focus. Even better, most patients have no downtime following the procedure, and you can return to normal activity immediately.
What Results Can I Expect from truSculpt® 3D?
You should be able to see results after a single treatment, and the gradual benefits should develop over the course of 10-12 weeks. Many individuals benefit from repeat treatments, and several sessions can achieve more comprehensive body contouring in one or several areas.
Are There Any truSculpt® 3D Side Effects?
Patients often appreciate the minimal side effects of this non-surgical treatment. After the truSculpt 3D procedure, you may notice some flushing or redness in the treated area, and the skin may be slightly sensitive. Both of these symptoms should subside quickly.
How Much Does truSculpt® 3D Cost?
The price of truSculpt 3D depends on the size of the area you are treating and the number of treatments you wish to have. On the lower end, truSculpt 3D can cost as little as $300. Dr. Bagshahi and our medical team will go over your cosmetic program, including the total cost, so you can be well-prepared in advance of the procedure. We can also discuss financing and payment options to help you bring the cost of your plan into your budget.
