Trusculpt is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that makes use of Radio Frequency (RF) technology for body contouring, body sculpting, fat reduction and cellulite removal. Designed to address problem areas like the thighs, abdomen, buttocks, and flanks, this treatment works for all types of skin. TruSculpt is an FDA-approved procedure.
How TruSculpt Works
With RF technology, TruSculpt makes use of comfortable and tolerable heat that emits from the handpiece that an expert provider carefully applies on the treated area. This heat will work to break down the fatty tissues and may be adjusted according to the patient’s comfort level.
Each application or pressure takes four minutes on average to administer, and then it is repeated until all areas are covered. A single, complete procedure takes less than an hour to finish. Patients report feeling no pain or irritation, only mild discomfort at the start of the procedure. TruSculpt requires no downtime following the procedure and patients can proceed with normal activities after their appointment.
Visible Results of a TruSculpt Treatment
Reducing and destroying fat cells scientifically cannot happen overnight. TruSculpt procedures require regular visits to the clinic every 8-12 weeks. Significant results will be gradual, but many patients see noticeable effects during the first few weeks of the treatment phase, such as smaller mass and less dimpling. Improvement, however, will be most satisfactory and rewarding with continued treatments.
The TruSculpt™ results are amazing and ideal to remove those small amounts of fat that stubbornly remain despite a good diet and regular exercise. It can be used on any area where fat or cellulite can accumulate to any part of the body. TruSculpt™ treats the following areas:
- Love Handles | Flanks
The TruSculpt system is also used for the temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite. Compared to older, alternative approaches such as freezing and ultrasound, a TruSculpt™ treatment is more comfortable, faster and most importantly, more effective.
Limitations of TruSculpt
Although safe and painless for most, TruSculpt cannot be administered to patients who have cardiac pacemakers, metallic implants, or defibrillators. Patients with tumors are also advised against the procedure. It is recommended that pregnant women wait a few months after giving birth before undergoing a TruSculpt treatment.

How long does a truSculpt™ non-invasive, fat removal treatment take?

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 and see results within days that will gradually increase during and possibly beyond this period.
What do I need to do before a treatment?
There is no special preparation needed before a treatment except for removing any jewelry or body piercings in the area(s).
What happens during the treatment?
After a brief pre-treatment preparation, the TruSculpt™ hand piece is applied to the skin. The hand piece will deliver a pulse of RF energy that will last four minutes on average. The hand piece will then be moved to adjacent areas to which this process will be repeated until the entire treatment area has been covered.
What does it feel like?
TruSculpt™ is designed to be a comfortable procedure for non-invasive fat removal and body sculpting and contouring. Because of its proprietary design, the heating of the area can be tolerated. We adjust the temperature based on your comfort level. Typically, no pain medication, topical anesthesia, gels or active cooling are required.
Can I return to normal activities after treatment?
Yes. The procedure is non-invasive, and you should be able to return to normal activities immediately. Typically, there is no downtime after the treatment although some patients may experience mild discomfort for a few hours. Many patients go back to work immediately after their sessions.
Is truSculpt™ safe? Are there side effects?
The TruSculpt™ System is designed to provide a safe and comfortable procedure for non-invasive fat removal and body sculpting and contouring. Side effects can include redness, sweating and mild tenderness in the treated areas. This usually resolves in a few hours. Your pre-treatment consultation will go in depth on what to expect during and after your treatment session.
