Body Sculpting Q & A

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting is a way of removing fat from specific parts of the body where it’s proving hard to lose weight, despite following a diet and exercise program. It doesn’t involve surgery but instead uses either a targeted heat or cold source to destroy fat cells for good.

The doctors at American Beauty Medi Spa in Lake Forest use the truSculpt 3D system, which they’ve found to be the most effective system for use in body sculpting.

How does body sculpting work?

Unlike liposuction or other fat-removal surgeries, body sculpting is noninvasive, making it a far less risky procedure. There’s no anesthetic to worry about, no wounds to heal, and no blood loss. Your doctor simply directs the handheld unit to the desired area and applies the treatment.

TruSculpt 3D uses monopolar radio-frequency (RF) technology to destroy fat cells. When applied, the treatment heats the fat cells in your body to a point where they’re damaged beyond repair. The dead cells then pass through your body just like any other dead cells, being absorbed or excreted in the months following treatment.

Is body sculpting treatment painful?

Patients usually describe a feeling of warmth rather than pain during treatment. Because there’s no incision into the skin, there’s no tissue damage apart from the destruction of fat cells, so unlike conventional surgeries, the recovery period is minimal. Within an hour of treatment, the warm feeling passes, and you’re able to carry on with your normal activities. You might find the area is a bit more sensitive than normal for a couple of days when you touch it, but it won’t last long.

Is body sculpting treatment effective?

After only one session, most patients reduce their stubborn fat by around 24%, and after three months you’ll see the full effects. You might need more than one session to eliminate all your stubborn fat, but each treatment only takes around 15 minutes.

As with any procedure, it’s vital to have your treatment at an approved center, administered by qualified clinicians.
