Procedures: truSculpt

The truSculpt™ system provides non-invasive radio frequency treatment for body sculpting. TruSculpt™ uses radiofrequency energy for deep tissue heating that promotes the non-invasive removal of fat and the tightening of the overlying skin. In addition to reducing fat, truSculpt treatments can help improve skin tone, and can also improve the appearance of cellulite.

Dr. Chapas and Dr. MacGregor are leading authorities on truSculpt. After working with Cutera, the device’s manufacturer, to establish the most effective protocols, we were pleased to offer truSculpt™ to our patients in early 2013. Our experience has been that truSculpt™ is well tolerated by our patients, with minimal discomfort and no downtime. Typically 1-2 treatments are necessary for the best results, which generally appear over a period of 4-16 weeks following the treatment. We continue to work with Cutera to develop treatment protocols for new areas, such as the neck.

We have also found that truSculpt™ can often complement other body contouring treatments, and can be used to treat a wide range of areas, including certain areas that present challenges for other noninvasive systems.
