Body Contouring Q & A
Why is it so hard to get rid of stubborn fat?
When you burn more calories than you take in, your body taps into the energy stored throughout your body as fat. The problem is, there’s no way to control which fatty deposits will be called into use first.
This leaves most people with “problem areas” where fat remains in place, even after conscientious dieting and exercising. This can make it hard to reach your fitness goals and leaves many feeling frustrated.
What is body contouring?
Body contouring offers a solution through targeted fat reduction. The truSculpt iD system uses monopolar radiofrequency to destroy a portion of targeted fat cells.
Once those cells are rendered incapable of storing fat, they break down and exit the body through your lymphatic system. They won’t regenerate, which means you’ll never store the same amount of fat in the treated areas.
Treatment areas include:
- Upper arms
- Beneath the chin
It’s important to note that while body contouring can permanently reduce as much as 24% of the fat in the treated area, the fat cells that remain will continue to function normally. That means they can expand to store as much fat as needed if you consume more calories than you burn.
Body contouring is best for people who have reached and are able to maintain a stable weight. Significant weight gain after treatment can mar your results.
Is body contouring painful?
The truSculpt iD platform works by generating heat in the deeper layers of your skin, where a thick layer of fat cells lies. The system uses a real-time temperature control feature to automatically adjust during treatments to keep your skin at a safe and comfortable temperature.
You may feel a gentle warming sensation during treatment sessions, but there is no pain. There’s also no need for advance preparation, any anesthesia, or recovery time.
Treatment sessions take just 15-30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Your body will simply shed the destroyed fat cells over the following 12 weeks.
