Fat Reduction Q & A

What does fat reduction do?

Fat-reduction treatments help reduce pockets of fat on your body. Although fat reductions remove some of your body fat, they’re not intended for weight loss. Rather, with TruSculpt 3D® fat-reduction treatments, you can reduce and tighten your:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Chin and neck area

What can I expect during my fat-reduction treatment?

Treatments with TruSculpt 3D are simple. You sit comfortably as Dr. Aziz glides the handpiece across your treatment area. Many TruSculpt 3D patients say that it feels similar to a relaxing hot stone massage.

Each fat-reduction session with TruSculpt 3D takes 60 minutes or less. After assessing your treatment area, Dr. Aziz tells you how many sessions you’ll need to achieve your fat-reduction goals.

How does fat reduction work?

TruSculpt 3D uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate a response from your body. Specifically, the radiofrequency waves from the device penetrate past your skin and into your deeper layers of fat and tissue. 

It makes your skin tighter and gives it structure by helping it make more collagen and elastin fibers. Simultaneously, it kills your fat cells. Then, your body completes the process.

Over the course of about six to eight weeks, your body flushes out the dead fat cells that can no longer hold their structure. On average, you’ll lose about 24% of the fat cells in your treated areas. You’ll enjoy a slimmer and tighter appearance, with more defined body contours.

How long is recovery from a fat-reduction procedure?

One of the most appealing parts of fat-sculpting procedures with TruSculpt 3D is that no recovery time is required. Your treated areas might feel a bit tender or sore, but not enough to require time off from work or your other normal activities.

Who can get fat-reduction treatments?

To find out if you can get fat-reduction treatments safely and effectively, you must consult with Dr. Aziz during a quick appointment at CareLife Medical. She asks about your health history and your goals for treatment with TruSculpt 3D. 

In general, you must have a BMI of less than 30 to safely undergo the procedure and see a difference in your body’s shape.

You deserve a body shape that you admire. To find out if you’re a candidate for nonsurgical fat reduction, call CareLife Medical or book a consultation online today.
