A New Way to Shrink Fat

truSculpt Beverly Hills

I’m always looking for innovative procedures to add to my practice. Recently, Marina Plastic Surgery began offering truSculpt™, a new, temporary, non-invasive cellulite treatment in Los Angeles , which also shrinks fat and slims areas such the thighs, stomach, hips and buttocks. This non-surgical body contouring procedure is simple, quick and highly effective. truSculpt can be used to complement the results of a surgical procedure such as liposuction, or it can be used alone for healthy individuals who want a smoother, more sculpted skin surface.

The Technology

Radiofrequency energy is what allows truSculpt to shrink fat cells and reduce fat tissue, thereby creating smoother contours. Although radiofrequency energy is not particularly “new” for non-surgical body contouring, truSculpt offers many new features, including:

  • Volumetric deep-tissue heating: truSculpt technology enables radiofrequency energy to reach deep into subcutaneous tissues where fat is stored.
  • Real-time temperature monitoring and feedback: This allows for better temperature control on the skin’s surface, which results in a more comfortable treatment with little or no downtime. No anesthetic or pain medication is necessary.
  • Uniform heating at therapeutic temperatures: Because heat is evenly distributed, results are more predictable.

Results

Most people need only 1 or 2 truSculpt sessions to achieve the improvement they want. The results are gradual and appear over the course of 4 to 12 weeks following treatment. My patients have reported smoother skin with a temporary reduction in the look of cellulite as well as thinner body contours.
