How does Botox work?
The truSculpt laser is delivered with a small, handheld device. The laser emits radiofrequency pulses that heat up the fat cells in the targeted area. Once these fat cells are heated, they die and begin to shrink. Over the next few weeks following your treatment session, your body can shed these cells, leaving you with a tighter, thinner appearance.
How do I know if truSculpt is right for me?
Although truSculpt can be utilized for patients of all skin tones and skin types, there are certain factors that may disqualify you from receiving the treatment. For example, if you are pregnant, you cannot undergo laser body contouring. You are also not able to undergo the treatment if you have a pacemaker or internal defibrillator in your body.
The area that you wish to have targeted by the truSculpt laser must be healthy with no metallic implants or tumors (malignant or benign) in the area.
truSculpt is most effective for patients who have a BMI (body mass index) of less than 30. This means that individuals who are extremely overweight should not receive this treatment. Laser body contouring is best used by individuals who are close to a healthy weight and just need some extra help targeting fat in stubborn areas.
