When Will I Start Seeing Visible Results?
TruSculpt™ delivers RF energy to destroy fat cells in the treatment area. It then uses the body’s natural system to break down and dispose of these cells. This process may take up to 3 months. Patients will begin to feel/see results within days that will gradually increase during and possibly beyond this period.
What do I Need To Do Before a Treatment?
Drink plenty of water prior to (preferably 32oz) to hydrate the cells and continuing drinking plenty of water in the days following your treatment. Also, brisk exercise after your procedure can be helpful in achieving better results. Removal of jewelry and body piercing near the treatment site must be removed.
What Happens During the Treatment?
After a brief pre-treatment preparation, the truSculpt™ handpiece is applied to the skin. The handpiece will deliver a pulse of RF energy that will last 4 minutes on average. The handpiece will then be moved to adjacent areas to which this process will be repeated until the entire treatment area has been covered.
