truSculpt 3D and Perfectio Q & A
What is body contouring?
Body contouring is the process of using medical and cosmetic treatments to improve the body’s contours, smoothing troublesome areas. Noninvasive procedures typically target stubborn fat areas that can be resistant to diet and exercise. Both nonsurgical procedures, truSculpt and Perfectio are performed right in Dr. Nisnisan’s office and require no downtime, allowing you to return to your normal daily activities as soon as the procedure is complete.
What is Perfectio?
Perfectio is a body contouring device that uses LED lights to rejuvenate the skin on the face, forehead, and eyes. Designed to treat flaws on the skin’s surface, Perfectio’s light travels 1-2 mm deep, stimulating the skin’s fibroblast cell activity. Using red and infrared wavelengths, this increases the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, improving your skin’s tone and elasticity.
Dr. Nisnisan moves the handheld device painlessly along the areas where you’d like to see improvements. The light wavelengths are then absorbed by pigmentation in the skin, boosting your skin’s circulation and reducing the appearance of:
- Sunspots and age spots
- Dark pigmentation
- Dull Complexions
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Perfectio is safe and effective on any skin color, tone, or age.
What is truSculpt?
TruSculpt is a body contouring procedure that takes a multidimensional approach to smoothing curves and reducing the size of trouble areas. Using radio frequency, truSculpt uniformly heats up, penetrating through the skin and focusing on fat cells. By increasing and sustaining the temperature inside the cell, truSculpt damages its integrity, and the cell is ultimately worn down and destroyed by the body.
With the removal of these fat cells, the body takes on a smoother, more contoured look. While Dr. Nisnisan can use truSculpt in a variety of areas, it’s designed to target fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise. Such fat is often located on the:
- Stomach area
- Love handles
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
What is truSculpt 3D?
truSculpt 3D is a new, nonsurgical radio frequency device designed to sculpt and contour the body. On average, patients who've had this treatment have experienced an average of 24% reduction in fat thickness* in a single treatment.
Am I a candidate for truSculpt 3D?
Your provider can tell you whether you're a good candidate for truSculpt 3D. Ideal patients typically have a BMI of less than 30.
How long does a treatment take?
The length of your procedure will depend on which areas you're having treated. As a gauge, it usually takes about 1 hour to treat the abdomen and both flanks (love handles).
How many treatments will I need?
You should see results after one treatment, although some patients choose to have a second treatment for final tweaks or to treat additional areas.
Will it hurt?
Patients tell us that the procedure feels like a hot stone massage. Your provider will gently glide the handpiece over the treatment area and the temperature of the skin will rise but should remain comfortable for the duration of the treatment.
Will I need recovery time?
No. This is a noninvasive procedure and you'll be able to resume your normal activities right after the treatment. You may feel some tenderness in the treatment area right after the treatment but that will go away within a day or two.
Are there any side effects?
You won't experience any side effects except for the slight tenderness mentioned above.
When will I see results?
Right after the treatment, your body will start to break down and flush out the remnants of the fat cells that have been treated, which begins the reduction in the treated area's circumference. Every body is different, but most people see noticeable results 6-8 weeks after being treated.
