Body Sculpting Q & A
What is body sculpting?
Body sculpting is a noninvasive treatment that significantly reduces fat deposits on your body. Some areas of fat are harder to lose than others despite diet and exercise. You can melt away this type of body fat using body-sculpting technology.
At APMI Wellness Center, Dr. Rosenbaum uses truSculpt® iD by Cutera® to target fat deposits in painless sessions that can be as short as 15 minutes, depending on the size of your targeted treatment area.
The truSculpt iD device uses monopolar radiofrequency (RF) energy to deliver radio waves though deep layers of fat cells. The energy from these waves heats and damages your fat cells.
Over the course of 12 weeks after your treatment, your body metabolizes the fat cells and flushes out the waste products, so the targeted area reduces in size.
Dr. Rosenbaum tailors your treatment according to your needs. Depending on the size of the targeted region, he may recommend returning for multiple treatment sessions. After each visit, there’s no need to schedule any downtime or time away from work.
What changes can I make with body sculpting?
Body sculpting with Cutera truSculpt iD results in an average 24% reduction of fat cells in treated areas. Radiofrequency is a very mild form of energy and doesn’t cause damage to skin cells or other nearby cell types in the region. Only the fat cells are destroyed.
Common areas of the body to target include:
The treatment is very gentle and causes little to no discomfort. In fact, many previous patients describe the sensation as being similar to a soothing hot stone massage. Since the treatment works in conjunction with your metabolism, the results appear slowly and look natural.
Am I a good candidate for body sculpting?
Body sculpting with truSculpt iD is safe, but not everyone is the perfect candidate. Body sculpting won’t help you lose a significant amount of weight.
If you’re overweight or obese, you should work toward your goal weight before targeting remaining fat deposits with body-sculpting treatments.
During your initial consultation for body sculpting, Dr. Rosenbaum evaluates your fat’s thickness, your skin type, and your skin laxity in the region. Any of these factors could affect your results, and he tells you if there are other options for treatment that may be better suited for your needs.
If you’re not yet at your goal weight, Dr. Rosenbaum may recommend taking part in a fitness or nutrition program at APMI Wellness Center before you consider body sculpting.
