How Does Nonsurgical Fat Reduction Work?
There are several devices that have been cleared for nonsurgical fat reduction. We are pleased to perform this type of body contouring using the truSculpt iD device. TruSculpt iD works through radiofrequency energy that permeates through the layers of fat beneath the dermis. The high-conductivity of this energy delivery targets subcutaneous fat that contributes to a muffin top, love handles, and excess bulk around the midsection. Radiofrequency absorption into the layer of subcutaneous fat causes the walls of fat cells to burst. The melted contents of the fat cells, as well as the damaged membranes, are picked up in the lymph fluid and eliminated from the body naturally.
It may take one or two treatments to achieve profound results, but research shows that a truSculpt iD treatment can reduce the target area by approximately 24 percent.
What is Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is a type of nonsurgical body contouring that works by stimulating deep muscle toning. The treatment is administered through comfortable applicators that fit over the target area of the body. The applicator delivers high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy known as HIFEM. This energy passes through the skin to target deep supramaximal muscle contractions. Supramaximal muscle contractions are involuntary and barely felt at the time of treatment. They are, however, more intense than what is needed to activate muscle fibers. This is why a single Emsculpt treatment far outdoes what you can do in a week of regular workouts.
How Many Nonsurgical Body Contouring Treatments Do I Need?
Whether you are interested in reducing unwanted fat in your midsection area or you want to tone up an area such as your buttocks, thighs, abdomen, or arms, you can expect to undergo a series of nonsurgical treatments. In general, the number of treatments that are needed correlates to the amount of fat reduction or toning that is needed to get you from where you're at to where you want to be.
TruSculp iD is a powerful radiofrequency treatment that may require one or two sessions to target the desired amount of fat. For optimal muscle tone results using Emsculpt, your provider may recommend up to six short sessions scheduled days or weeks apart. You can learn what it will take to achieve your best results when you consult with our friendly, experienced team!
When will I see My Body Contouring Results?
The downside to non-surgical body contouring is that each treatment relies on your natural biological processes to achieve visible results. Keep in mind, however, that you also won't have the swelling, bruising, and pain associated with plastic surgery! You can expect to start seeing results of fat-reduction as early as one month after your appointment. Your body will continue to offload the excess fat for up to three or four months, after which you can enjoy your slimmer contours for a prolonged period. Similarly, your Emsculpt muscle-toning results will appear gradually over the course of several weeks.
