Have you spent years denying yourself a slice of pizza at the office party and skipping social events to hit the gym? Do you feel like you’ve tried everything to sculpt your dream body, and you just have to accept it now? With non-invasive fat reduction with the truSculpt iD device at The Medispa at the Gynecology Center in Ormond Beach, FL, you can finally have the body you’ve dreamed of. Read on to learn more.
What Is Non-Invasive Fat Reduction?
Non-invasive fat reduction with the truSculpt iD device is a non-surgical technique used to sculpt your ideal contours by melting excess fat cells with radiofrequency energy. It is a far superior fat removal solution than liposuction because liposuction is a risky, invasive procedure that requires candidates to be in extremely good health. Even worse, due to its invasive nature, it requires over a month of recovery.
On the other hand, when you opt for fat reduction with the truSculpt iD device, you won’t have to take any time off from work at all. There is no downtime required following this treatment, and it is very little you have to do to take care of yourself after your treatment. This fat removal technique is also better than liposuction because the results become apparent much sooner than the results of liposuction.
How Quickly Does This Treatment Work?
This treatment can be used to melt unwanted fat cells within 15 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated and the amount of excess subcutaneous fat in the area. However, unlike liposuction, this treatment doesn’t involve a suction device removing excess fat cells from an area. Instead, your lymphatic system notices the liquefied fat cells, identifies them as useless, and carries them away.
It isn’t long after your fat cells are destroyed that your lymphatic system notices them. However, they will not all be processed and eliminated within a couple of days of treatment. Rather, most people see their final results 12 weeks after their treatment session.
How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need for Ideal Results?
Your goal weight, current weight, body fat distribution, and desired aesthetic will affect how many sessions are required for optimal results. For the most part, people only need one treatment session to achieve satisfactory results. However, you may need two sessions or more if you are not yet at your goal weight.
Typically, treatment sessions are scheduled four to six weeks apart. Therefore, if you need three sessions to get the contours you want, and they are scheduled one month apart, it will take you five months to achieve your desired look. However, if you’ve been stuck on a plateau for the past several months, you’ll love every week of the five months it takes you to see your dream body because you will notice continuous improvements.
How Long Do the Results of This Treatment Last?
Due to the unique nature of fat cells, the fat removal results of this treatment last forever. Every other type of cell in your body can be regenerated. In other words, your body can make more if it dies. However, fat cells cannot be regenerated. If a fat cell is killed, a new one will never be grown to take its place. Therefore, you will always have fewer fat cells in the targeted areas following your non-invasive fat reduction.
However, this treatment only removes a percentage of the subcutaneous fat cells in the treatment area. Thus, if you consume more calories than your body needs in the future, it is possible that you will store the excess energy in the fat cells that remain in the treated area. Therefore, you may feel dissatisfied with your treatment areas. Nevertheless, your treated areas will never become as large as they were before treatment because there aren’t as many cells.
How Can I See the Results of This Treatment Faster?
If you feel like you can’t wait three months to see the final results of your treatment, you must take steps to ensure your lymphatic system is operating as efficiently as possible. One of the most important things you can do to support an efficient lymphatic system is to make sure you are hydrated.
Individual hydration needs vary based on sex, weight, and activity level, but most people can remain hydrated if they drink at least three-quarters of a gallon of hydrating fluids daily. Specifically, you can drink water, coffee, and tea to stay hydrated. If you try as hard as you can to drink plenty of fluids but find that your urine is still dark, try eating more foods that are high in water, like fruits, vegetables, and broth-based soups.
Exercising is another great way to see the final results of your treatment faster. Exercise facilitates a more efficient lymphatic system by supporting your cardiovascular system.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
The only way to know for sure whether you are a good candidate for this treatment is to come in for an initial evaluation. It is important that you have enough fat in your areas of concern for removal, but it is also important that you do not have too much excess subcutaneous fat in your areas of concern. Typically, we look for people with at least an inch of pinchable fat in a large area of concern, like the abdomen, chest, or back.
If you are targeting a smaller area, you may still qualify for this treatment if you don’t have at least an inch of pinchable fat. Regarding how much fat in an area of concern is too much fat, it is advisable to be no more than 30 pounds from your ideal weight to qualify for truSculpt iD treatment.
Can I Get This Treatment if I Want To Have Children in the Future?
Yes, you can get non-invasive fat reduction if you plan to have children in the future. However, you may not receive this treatment if you are currently pregnant or breastfeeding. The FDA has approved this body sculpting device for most healthy adults regardless of skin type or tone. Nevertheless, there has been no research to indicate whether this device is safe or effective for pregnant or nursing women. Therefore, it is not FDA-approved in such cases.
As noted above, it is possible to store excess energy in the targeted areas after treatment if you operate at a caloric surplus. Therefore, you may need a follow-up treatment if you get pregnant after you receive this treatment. Some women don’t gain weight during pregnancy, and some women lose all of the weight they gain during pregnancy. However, you should still consider the possibility that you will gain weight during pregnancy and need a touch-up.
