How long are TruSculpt treatment times?
Depending on the body area(s) being treated, treatment time can take anywhere to an hour and up.
Am I the right candidate for TruSculpt?
Your About Face Skin Care treatment provider will determine if treatment is right for you during a one-on-one consultation. Typically patients have a BMI less than 30 and have unwanted fat in different areas of the body.
Who cannot be treated with TruSculpt?
Patients who cannot be treated with TruSculpt include:
- Those who are pregnant
- Those with cardiac pacemakers or internal defibrillators
- Those with malignant or benign tumors in the target area
- Those with metallic implants in the target area of any kind including joint replacements
How many treatments will there be?
Your About Face Skin Care treatment provider will discuss with you the number of treatments based upon the area(s) you wish to have treated and your desired results. Typically a patient will receive 2-3 treatments. Each treatment should be 4-8 weeks apart.
What do I need to do before a treatment?
There is no special preparations needed before a treatment. Remove any jewelry or body piercings in the area prior to treatment.
What happens during the treatment?
Your About Face treatment provider will identify with you the specific areas of the body to be treated. After a brief pre-treatment preparation, they will apply the truSculpt handpiece to your skin which will deliver a pulse of RF energy. Each pulse will last on average 4 minutes; upon completion, the handpiece will move to an adjacent area to begin pulse. The entire treatment will last for 1 hour or less.
What do TruSculpt treatments feel like?
TruSculpt is designed to be a comfortable procedure. Due to its unique design, the heating of the area will be tolerable. Your practitioner can adjust the temperature depending upon your comfort level. Typically no pain medication, topical anesthetics, gels, or active cooling will be needed.
When will I start seeing visible results?
TruSculpt delivers RF energy and uses the body’s natural system to break down fat cells in treated areas. This process takes anywhere from 4 weeks to 3 months. A patient may begin to see results anytime during that period and beyond.
Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
Yes, the procedure is non-invasive, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after the session.
Are there side effects?
The TruSculpt system is designed to provide a safe and comfortable procedure. Typically, there is no downtime after the treatment though patients may experience mild discomfort. Side effects can include redness, sweating, and mild tenderness in the treated areas. Usually this resolves within a few hours. Your practitioner will talk to you more about what to expect during and after treatment when you meet for your consultation.
Is TruSculpt FDA-approved?
Yes! TruSculpt treatments are both FDA and Health Canada cleared for deep tissue heating and the temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite. In addition, TruSculpt has also received CE Mark clearance for body sculpting, body contouring, circumferential reduction and fat reduction.
