Body contouring is a non-invasive solution for fat pockets on the body. This type of treatment is ideal for those problem areas like the "muffin top" or other areas that just don't slim down even after diet and exercise.
At Dermatology of Boca, only the best and most effective equipment is used. For body contouring, that is the TruSculpt system. TruSculpt uses Radio Frequency technology to send heat deep within the fatty tissues. This heat essentially melts the targeted fatty tissue away while leaving the tissues around it intact and undamaged.
TruSculpt is best for patients who are healthy overall, and who have a Body Mass Index of under 30. The treatment is ideal for people who have been unable to lose fat from certain areas of their body, but it is not meant to be a substitute for weight loss. TruSculpt can be used on people with any skin type. Although safe for most people, TruSculpt treatment is typically not appropriate for women who are pregnant, people who have metallic implants in the treatment area, and people who have pacemakers or other cardiac devices.
The length of treatment depends on the size of the treatment area. In most cases, body contouring with TruSculpt takes anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes per treatment area.
For most people, results will show after 1 or 2 treatments. Treatments are scheduled at least one month apart.
Results are usually evident after 1 to 3 months. The change will be gradual, but will ultimately be impressive.
Recovery is easy, as the procedure is completely non-invasive. Patients can return to work and their regular routine as soon as the treatment is complete if desired.
