Everyone wants washboard abs, but not everyone is disciplined enough or genetically inclined to get them. If you want a tighter and more toned midsection or want to eliminate those love handles that give you the dreaded muffin top, we can help. At Dr. Whitney Shoemaker The Medispa at the Gynecology Center in Ormond Beach, FL, we offer Trusculpt ID. This revolutionary treatment can finally eliminate stubborn fat cells around the midsection for good.
What Should You Avoid After TruSculpt?
One of the benefits of Trusculpt ID is that after undergoing the treatment process, you won’t have to worry about downtime. However, there are some things that you should avoid to ensure you achieve the best results. You should avoid applying any topical products, lotions, gels, or creams to your treatment area to avoid irritation.
Additionally, to help your body effectively metabolize the destroyed fat cells in the area, you should avoid excessive alcohol consumption and the consumption of foods high in fat. Doing so will give your body the best chance at eliminating those stubborn fat cells that were treated during your session so that you can enjoy results as soon as possible.
Avoiding Anti-Inflammatory Medications
You should also avoid anti-inflammatory medications such as Advil, Ibuprofen, Aspirin, and Motrin after your treatment because they could interfere with your body’s response to the treatment. Your technician will give you details about how long you should avoid these medications and anti-inflammatory supplements to ensure that you achieve the best possible results.
How Can You Enhance Your Results After the Treatment?
While there is very minimal aftercare required post-treatment, there are some activities that you can add to your routine to enhance and speed up your post-treatment results. The body will metabolize the fat cells destroyed during your treatment, but you can add some activities to your daily routine to promote the quickest metabolism of those destroyed cells.
Start Dry Brushing
Dry brushing is a simple yet effective way to promote a healthy lymphatic system. When you focus on dry brushing your treatment area, you can help promote a healthy lymphatic system so that it can eliminate the destroyed fat cells from the treatment area. Dry brushing is a simple and cost-effective way to support your lymphatic system. You can purchase a dry brush online, at med spas or some salons, or in the health and beauty section of your local big-box store.
How To Dry Brush
To dry brush, you simply start at the bottom of your body, typically the tops of your feet and ankles, and brush upwards towards your heart. Once you get to areas above your heart, simply brush downwards towards your heart.
Dry brushing naturally helps the body by promoting lymphatic drainage and increasing blood circulation. Adding this activity to your daily routine will help your lymphatic system efficiently remove the dead fat cells destroyed during your treatment. It also exfoliates your skin, improving its health and quality.
Increase Your Water Intake
Increasing your water intake is another way to promote quick results and an efficient lymphatic system after your treatment. Drinking at least three liters of water daily can help your body flush fat from your system so that you can see your results as quickly as possible.
Drinking water will also help hydrate your skin and improve your skin tone so that as you see your results, your skin will appear tighter and firmer post-treatment. Drinking more water will help promote an efficient lymphatic system and optimal health and wellness.
Getting enough exercise each day is another good way to help promote quick results after your treatment. Exercise activates your lymphatic system and helps promote lymphatic drainage, which includes the fat cells that have been destroyed as a result of your treatment. We recommend that patients get plenty of exercise after their treatment, and if desired, they can even work out immediately following their initial treatment.
Continue To Eat a Healthy Diet
Most patients who schedule this treatment are relatively fit to very fit individuals who want to use body contouring to fine-tune their bodies in a way that their diet and fitness routine cannot.
However, this treatment is not a free pass to unhealthy living, so it’s important that you continue to eat a healthy diet to promote an efficient system and help your body perform at an optimal level so that it can remove those dead fat cells from your abdomen to see results as quickly as possible.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Trusculpt ID?
Trusculpt ID is a body contouring treatment that specifically targets stubborn fat cells on the abdomen and love handles. It helps you get one step closer to your ideal image with just a quick and painless 15-minute treatment session.
How Does It Work?
This treatment uses monopolar radiofrequency technology to heat stubborn fat cells and break them down. Over time, the body then responds by eliminating those stubborn fat cells through the lymphatic system.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Patients who schedule this treatment can expect up to a 24% reduction in fat volume in their treatment area within two to three months of the treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients only need one treatment to see the best results. Still, your technician will evaluate your treatment area during your consultation and give you a better idea of what your treatment plan will look like so that you can achieve the desired results. Some patients choose to add additional sessions to their treatment plan to further target stubborn fat in the abdomen and love handles.
Is It a Painful Treatment?
Trusculp ID treatments don’t cause any pain. Patients describe the sensation during the session as similar to a hot stone massage. While this treatment device will heat your skin, the heating process is completely controlled to provide safe and effective treatment. You won’t have to worry about anesthesia or discomfort during the treatment.
How Long Do Treatments Take?
A typical treatment takes 15 minutes but depending on the size of the area you want to treat, or whether you want to treat multiple areas, treatments could take up to 30 minutes. Once we determine your unique treatment plan, we can give you a better idea of how long your treatment will take to complete.
Who Is a Candidate?
Patients with all different skin types, even those with tattoos, can schedule this treatment to improve the appearance of their midsections. Healthy adults who understand that eating a healthy diet and a regular exercise routine is important in maintaining results make good candidates for this treatment. Patients must have realistic expectations going into the treatment process and understand that this body contouring treatment is not a weight-loss treatment.
It’s specifically designed to target those areas of the midsection that won’t respond to a healthy diet or exercise routine. An initial consultation at our office will determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment.
Who Isn’t a Candidate?
Patients who qualify as obese or have not reached their goal weight will not qualify for this treatment until they have reached a healthy weight. This treatment is not a weight-loss treatment but instead is a fat reduction treatment; it’s important that patients understand what the treatment can and cannot do.
Are the Results Permanent?
Once fat cells are heated to a temperature that they cannot withstand, they will break down, and the body will eliminate them through the lymphatic system. Once eliminated, they cannot return to grow back. For that reason, after you undergo this treatment, you can expect permanent results. However, if you do gain weight, any remaining fat cells in your abdomen or love handles may expand due to weight gain.
To keep this from happening, all you have to do is eat a healthy diet and exercise consistently. Most patients have no problem maintaining their results because they already live a healthy lifestyle and choose to use this body contouring treatment to further tighten and tone their bodies in the way that their diet and exercise routine cannot.
