Around this time of year, we often make resolutions to transition to a healthier diet or to increase our physical activity with the aim of improving our bodies, both inside and out. All around the city, we can find people sipping green smoothies, upping their daily intake of fruits and vegetables, jogging in the early evening darkness, and setting their alarms for 6:00 AM spin class. We have the newness and excitement of starting the year with a clean slate, and the added benefit of a few month buffer zone in which to realize our physical goals before bathing suit season arrives.
All this hard work is integral for our health, and will improve our cardiovascular fitness, decrease our risk of developing chronic metabolic conditions, improve our mood and energy, and contribute to more restful sleep. However, despite this dedication to diet and exercise, and the myriad health benefits we reap, we are sometimes left with stubborn problem areas that continue to be a source of aesthetic concern for us.
Previously, our options for addressing these areas unresponsive to diet and exercise were limited to plastic surgery and liposuction, both invasive and expensive treatments with significant post-procedural down time. Now we have an alternative solution for treating these areas, which aims to contour the body by locally reducing fat and improving the appearance of cellulite. Meet TruSculpt technology.
TruSculpt is a noninvasive in-office treatment which utilizes radiofrequency energy to gradually heat subcutaneous and adipose (fat) tissue, resulting in a significant decrease in the size of fat deposits and noticeable improvement in the appearance of cellulite in the treated areas. TruSculpt can be used to treat most common areas of concern including beneath the chin, “bra bulge”, the lower abdomen, “love handles”, buttocks, thigh area and “saddle bags”. The treatment is well-tolerated, safe, affordable, and has no associated down time. Patients see results as early as 4 weeks, with optimal results typically achieved at 12 weeks. Two to 4 treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart are recommended.
