At Pure Beauty Medical Spa, we offer laser body contouring in Orange County for our patients. Contact our office today to find out if laser body contouring could work for you.
How does laser body contouring work?
At our office, we use the truSculpt laser by Cutera. This method is cleared for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). A small device delivers radiofrequency pulses to heat fat cells under your skin’s surface. When the fat cells are heated, they die. Over a period of a few weeks following your treatment, your body sheds these dead fat cells.
How do I know if laser body contouring is right for me?
In general, truSculpt treatments are safe for any skin type, so your skin tone or texture is not going to prevent you from being a candidate. The factors that can disqualify you are more related to what’s inside your body. For example, a metallic implant in the area you want to target can prevent you from taking advantage of laser body contouring. The same is true if you have a tumor in the targeted area (this applies to both malignant and benign tumors). You also cannot receive the truSculpt treatment if you are pregnant or if you have a pacemaker or internal defibrillator.
Laser body contouring in Orange County is generally used for patients who are at an otherwise healthy weight, but have some stubborn fatty areas to target. Patients with a body mass index (BMI) may not be ideal candidates.
What can I expect during a body contouring session?
The treatment session for laser body contouring in Orange County lasts about one hour or less. Your sessions will be spread out with a month in between. Most patients only need one or two contouring sessions, but that depends on the area that you are having treated.
The medical professional at our center will use a small, flat device and hold it gently against your skin. During the process, radio frequency is used to heat the fat under your skin. Each pulse with the device lasts approximately four minutes.
A body contouring session is not painful, but you might feel a warm sensation. The truSculpt laser device has an adjustable temperature control, so your medical professional can adjust it to your comfort level.
If you have any questions about the process, one of the professionals at Pure Beauty Medical Spa will be happy to help answer them for you.
