TRUSCULPT™Request Your Consultation
TruSculpt™ is the latest noninvasive technology to address a wide set of aesthetic concerns on the body. truSculpt™ is clinically proven to deliver deep, uniform heating to tackle adipose and cellulite with comfort and ease — even on the smallest of areas of the body, improving your overall body contours by reducing fat and the appearance of cellulite. The truSculpt™ system used at our Glen Carbon, Ill, med spa is a safe, effective FDA cleared device and was developed based on findings from the only published, peer-reviewed study demonstrating time-temperature dependency on adipose cell viability. The in-vitro testing demonstrated 60 percent loss of cell viability 1.2 following a sustained temperature of 45℃ to adipose cells for 3 minutes.1
TrSculpt™ can be applied to even the smallest part of the body. This system is often used to correct other systems results which can leave unusual edges and borders.
The TruSculpt™ procedure is most beneficial for the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and neck but it can be used on other areas of stubborn fat as well.
What to Expect
The process is easier than you expect. You will feeling a gentle warming sensation to the areas being treated. We perform the truSculpt™ procedure at our office near Maryville. It takes 30-45 minutes depending on the area to be treated and you can return to work afterwards with little to no discomfort.
Most people begin to see results from truSculpt™ in about 4 weeks, with the final results appearing after about 12 weeks. Two to 3 sessions are usually enough to create significant improvements, but more treatments can be performed if necessary.
Compared to Liposuction
Although truSculpt™ can improve your body contours and shrink fat cells, it cannot remove large amounts of fat the way liposuction can. Those who need more dramatic improvements may want to consider liposuction techniques as a more effective option.
