We know how frustrating stubborn body fat can be. Exercise and a healthy, measured diet will help you lose weight – but they won’t always slim down the areas that are aggravating you the most. Even after you’ve gotten to your target weight, some patches on the body retain fatty tissue.
It’s there that Jacksonville truSculpt can step in and make a significant difference. This breakthrough technology uses RF (radio frequency) energy to destroy fat cells lurking within the skin. Through deep, careful heating of the target area, precise sculpting and fat reduction can become a reality.
Could I be a truSculpt Candidate?
Before learning more about the technology, you’re understandably eager to know whether it could work for your body. This question can only be answered through a consultation. As always, our initial Jacksonville truSculpt consultations are entirely free of charge. During this appointment, Dr. Lezaic will determine if treatment is right for your problem fat. Ideal truSculpt patients have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of less than 30, and are struggling with stubborn fat in different areas of the body.
Who can’t receive truSculpt treatment?
There are only a few restrictions on truSculpt patients. Fortunately, this means that it’s probably safe for you. But you should take care if you fall into one of these categories:
- Pregnant women
- Individuals with cardiac pacemakers or internal defibrillators
- Individuals with tumors (malignant or benign) in the target area
- Individuals with metallic implants in the target area, such as joint replacements
Is truSculpt right for all skin types?
Yes! truSculpt can be used on every skin type. Plus, Dr. Lezaic will consult with you prior to the procedure to ensure that your skin won’t respond poorly to the heating.
How long does treatment take?
Typically, a single treatment takes less than an hour. Then, there will be between 2-3 treatments, each spaced 4-8 weeks apart.
Before getting started, Dr. Lezaic will confer with you and estimate the right number of treatments. This prediction will be based on the treatment areas and your target results.
When will I start noticing results?
TruSculpt heats the problem areas with RF energy, affecting the unwanted fat cells. The body’s natural processes then gradually break down the treated fat cells. This process takes a different amount of time for each patient, lasting anywhere from 4 weeks to 3 months. A patient will see results at any time during that period, the improvements will continue beyond it.
Do I need to prepare for Jacksonville truSculpt treatment?
There’s nothing special you need to do before treatment. It’s simple: just remove jewelry or piercings in the treatment area. That’s all you need to do!
What happens during a treatment?
Dr. Lezaic will identify specific areas of the body to be treated. After a brief preparatory process, she will apply the truSculpt handpiece to your skin, delivering a gentle pulse of energy. Each pulse lasts about 4 minutes; after the pulse is complete, we will move the handpiece to a neighboring area to begin a fresh pulse. The entire treatment will lasts just one hour or less.
The truSculpt system’s top priority is providing a safe, comfortable, and effective procedure. During treatment, the handpiece temperature is adjusted to fit your comfort level. Patients typically don’t need pain medication, topical anesthetic, or any kind of active cooling.
There is usually no downtime after a treatment, although patients may experience mild discomfort. Side effects can include redness, sweating, and mild tenderness (only at the treated areas). Any discomfort usually disappears within a few hours. Dr. Lezaic will describe what you can expect during and after treatment, at your initial consultation. That way, there aren’t any surprises.
How quickly can I return to normal activities?
The truSculpt procedure is non-invasive. You’ll be able to return to normal activities right away. Patients usually go back to work immediately after the session.
truSculpt could be a possibility for you. If you’re interested in dealing with fatty areas that have been frustrating you, we can help find a way to fit this revolutionary treatment into your life. Just schedule your free appointment to get started.
