Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Noninvasive body contouring addresses those problem areas that still hold on to extra fat even though you’ve achieved a normal weight through diet and exercise.

At Enliven Medical Clinic, truSculpt® iD eliminates stubborn, unwanted fat. Body contouring doesn’t simply shrink fat cells as traditional weight loss does. Instead, it destroys fat cells for good.

What is truSculpt body contouring?

TruSculpt is a radiofrequency device that helps you achieve the physique you want. When applied with a handpiece such as hands-free, hand-held, or smaller handpiece, to predetermined treatment areas, the energy penetrates an entire fat layer while maintaining a comfortable skin temperature. Your body then disposes of these fat cells through its natural waste-removal system.

Radiofrequency energy delivered by truSculpt penetrates more deeply than other similar fat-reduction treatments. You get better results, and your skin stays at a lower, more comfortable temperature throughout a session due to built-in temperature monitoring.

What areas can truSculpt treat?

The team at Enliven Medical Clinic create a customized plan for you and your aesthetic goals. Areas commonly contoured with truSculpt include:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Under the chin

TruSculpt is effective in areas that diet and exercise have been ineffective in reducing. 

Do body contouring treatments hurt?

The technology of truSculpt is safe, effective, and comfortable, and it doesn’t require downtime. You do feel the warmth and some pressure during a session, but it feels much like a warm stone massage. Expect every single treatment to last 15 minutes. You may have some redness at treatment sites, as a result of the elevated temperature during treatment, but the redness fades quickly. You can resume all of your normal activities afterward.

How many treatments will I need?

Any truSculpt session effectively reduces up to 24% of fat cells in any given treatment area. Dr. Ashtari recommends multiple sessions to help you get the best results. Of course, every person is different, and she works with you to design a plan specifically for you. Some people also maintain the best results with touchups every six months.

The results are permanent, however, because the fat layers are destroyed. With fat loss achieved through diet and exercise, fat cells remain and always have the potential to plump up again if you eat too many calories or can’t be physically active.
