TruSculpt is the latest and most effective procedure for non-invasive fat reduction and body sculpting/contouring. The Cutera truSculpt™ uses a proprietary radio frequency (RF) technology that allows uniform heating of the subcutaneous fat layer at sustained therapeutic temperatures. The fat cells are destroyed during this process and then broken down/disposed of by the body over up to three months. The truSculpt results are subtle and ideal to remove those small amounts of fat that stubbornly remain despite a good diet and regular exercise. The truSculpt system is also used for the temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite.
What is truSculpt?
The truSculpt system is a safe, effective FDA cleared device. This procedure is most beneficial for the thighs, buttocks and abdomen, but it can be used on other areas of stubborn fat as well.
The truSculpt Procedure
One of the main advantages of truSculpt is that the procedure is very simple and comfortable, requiring no anesthetic before and no downtime afterward. During your treatment, a hand piece that emits radiofrequency energy is placed over the targeted area. Pulses of energy cause fat cells to heat up and shrink, promoting skin contraction for a slimming and smoothing effect. Each treatment usually lasts about 1 hour. The level of heat can be adjusted for each person, ensuring a positive experience free of pain or discomfort.
