truSculpt® 3D in Orland Park
You’re disciplined about your diet. You keep active, but you’re not satisfied with your body contour. The pesky problem around your waistline is frustrating because it’s impervious to your diet and exercise routine. This annoyance may be a good reason to investigate how our truSculpt® 3D treatment system can help.
This treatment system from Cutera is a non-invasive, no-downtime treatment system able to target troubled areas of the body, like the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. During your procedure, heat is used to affect deep subcutaneous tissue comfortably and painlessly. The warmth helps reduce fat cell size and stimulates skin tightening, resulting in a slim, smooth contour in targeted areas and minimizing the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs.
The truSculpt® 3D system is an FDA approved procedure for deep tissue heating. You will see initial results within four weeks, with maximum improvement after approximately three months.
truSculpt® 3D Defined
truSculpt® 3D is radio frequency technology which decreases fat, reduces the circumference of the treated areas, and creates optimal results after one treatment with no incisions or downtime.
The procedure can:
- Reduce Depth
- Improve Definition
- Reshape Dimension
Controlled heat is applied to common problem areas that prove difficult to spot-treat with exercise alone and where stubborn fat is more likely to accumulate, such as:
- Bra line
- Upper arms
What to Expect from truSculpt® 3D in Orland Park
The process is simple and requires no anesthetic. During treatment, we position a handpiece which emits radiofrequency energy over the treatment area. Pulses of energy cause fat cells to heat and contract, encouraging skin firming for a smoothing and slimming effect.
truSculpt® 3D delivers consistent results with short treatment times, minimal treatment sessions, ability to target large areas, and a demonstrated ability to reduce 24% to 35% of the fat cells where applied. Dermal heating for fat reduction is safe for use on all skin types as well.
After treatment, you can return to your normal activities; no downtime is required. Additional sessions are offered, if necessary, to attain desired results.
