Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a non-surgical method of fat reduction. For body contouring treatments, the focus is targeting specific areas of stubborn fat that don't respond to weight loss. 

CareLife Style uses the state-of-the-art truSculpt body contouring system, which reduces fat while also tightening the skin. 

What areas can I treat with body contouring?

Body contouring with truSculpt 3D can reduce fat and tighten the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • Submental areas - chin and upper neck areas

If you have extra fat in another area that concerns you, just ask about whether truSculpt 3D can help. 

What is it like to have non-surgical body contouring?

During truSculpt 3D body contouring treatments, you sit or lie down with the treatment area exposed. The treatment device glides across your skin, emitting low-frequency radiofrequency energy that travels deep into your subcutaneous fat layer. 

You usually feel some warmth during treatment; many people say that it's a lot like a hot stone massage. 

Radiofrequency energy selectively damages your unwanted fat cells, and your body then breaks the fat down and flushes it out over time. 

At the same time, radiofrequency energy gently heats your dermal collagen and elastin to start remodeling and tissue contraction. That tightens your skin as the fat cells die, removing the concerns of sagging after fat loss. 

When do I notice results after body sculpting?

You break down treated fat cells over a period of 12 weeks with optimal results appearing at that time. But, you may notice steady slimming and tightening starting well before then. On average, most people enjoy a 24% fat reduction after one truSculpt treatment. 

If you want to refine your results further, you can schedule follow-up treatments after three months. 

How long does body sculpting take?

Body sculpting sessions take an hour or less, even for large treatment areas. You can treat two or more areas at once, for example, the abdomen and love handles. 

What is recovery like after body sculpting?

With truSculpt, there's no downtime at all. You may have some mild tenderness and redness in the treated areas for a day or two, but it's not disruptive or painful. Most people return to their daily activities immediately after their body contouring treatment at CareLife Style.
