The “Quarantine 15,” also known as those extra pounds you might have gained during quarantine, is real and is affecting many. As we have remained indoors much more than usual these past several months, we have not been able to move and burn calories naturally. Our normal walks around the office to see co-workers have been replaced with sitting in our home offices or living room; instead of browsing around the mall or our other favorite shops, we’re clicking through online stores on our computer. We’ve adapted to a less active and more sedentary lifestyle, and some of our bodies have responded with retaining weight.

With no sure end in sight, some might feel like there is nothing that can be done about their changing body, but here at Spring Street Dermatology, we offer several options for concealing unwanted and stubborn fat deposits. With our many TruSculpt options, we may be able to help you make your “Quarantine 15” seemingly disappear.

TruSculpt

TruSculpting offers body contouring without invasive techniques. It uses heat from radiofrequency energy to target and destroy stubborn, unwanted fat deposits. This is different from CoolSculpting, which uses controlled cooling (cryolipolysis) to freeze fat cells. Both devices offer a nonsurgical option for body contouring. TruSculpt is ideal for targeting stubborn areas such as:

  • Lower abdomen
  • Double chin
  • Bra fat
  • Back fat
  • “Love handles”
  • “Muffin tops”
  • “Saddle bags”

We usually recommend 2-4 treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results. Many of our New York patients see results within four weeks, with optimal results typically achieved at 12 weeks. You may require minimal downtime after a TruSculpt procedure, and most patients resume regular activities immediately after treatment.

TruSculpt iD

TruSculpt iD, also called WarmSculpting, is the latest noninvasive TruSculpt technology from Cutera that targets problem areas of fat and cellulite that are resistant to diet and exercise. With just a few treatments, you may be able to sculpt your body and walk with confidence, whether you’re inside or finally outdoors.

Like TruSculpt, TruSculpt iD uses radiofrequency energy to heat and melt stubborn fat. TruSculpt iD is designed to be used on the abdomen and flanks, as well as more challenging areas like the upper arms. The TruSculpt iD machine uses slow heat, administered in cycles to melt the fat layers. 

The treated areas each require just 15 minutes of heat, keeping this a relatively comfortable procedure. This treatment requires minimal downtime. The treated areas may redden somewhat, but this side effect should disappear quickly. Many patients see results in up to six weeks, and optimal results may be able to be seen after 12 weeks. 

This treatment is available exclusively at our Uptown office.

TruSculpt Flex

TruSculpt Flex focuses on your muscles, rather than fat reduction. It stimulates the muscles that haven’t been strengthened during quarantine to tone and sculpt them. A single, 45-minute body sculpting session can simulate hundreds of crunches, possibly accelerating the results you would typically see from a series of intense workouts. This non-surgical device is adjusted to your unique fitness level and personal goals. It works in three modes:

  • Prep Mode – where the machine replicates the twisting motions you might make during a warm-up exercise, stretching your muscles and slowly building a tolerance to muscle contractions
  • Tone Mode – where the machine contracts your muscles until they are exhausted, mimicking strength training to increase strength and endurance
  • Sculpt Mode – where the machine aims to develop new muscle fibers and increase your muscle mass and basal metabolic rate (BMR)

By stimulating muscles with an electric current, this treatment can give you the drive you need to strengthen and tone your abdomen, buttocks, and/or thigh muscles, even while stuck at home. This machine uses multi-directional stimulation (MDS), making it possible to target specific muscle groups. Results may be seen within 45 minutes. Optimal results are usually visible 8-12 weeks after the last session. To learn more about TruSculpt Flex, visit cutera.com

This treatment is available exclusively at our Uptown office.

Kybella

Kybella™ is another treatment that can help address stubborn fat deposits. It is ideal for reshaping submental fat, or a double chin that’s appeared during quarantine. Kybella has made correcting double chins much less invasive, as previously you could only correct this with liposuction, which requires anesthesia and a few days of recovery time.

Kybella is a prescription medication that our dermatologists can inject into unwanted fat at any of our NYC offices. The medicine’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in fat breakdown and absorption. When injected into submental fat, Kybella can destroy fat cells, which may then be naturally eliminated from the body. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. Most patients need multiple treatments to attain ideal results. Final results can take more than six weeks to be evident. After an ideal aesthetic response is achieved, it is unlikely you will need a repeat treatment.
