TruSculpt® 3D Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. How does Trusculpt® 3D compare to Coolsculpting?
A. Coolsculpting is outdated for many reasons now:
It gets less fat reduction than Trusculpt® 3D
Only Trusculpt® 3D tightens the skin in addition to destroying fat
Because the skin is put in a box with Coolsculpting, you are missing areas in between that have fat, so there is no uniform treatment all over the area
It takes 3x longer to receive Coolscuplting than TruSculpt® 3D
With TruSculpt® 3D the patient can get up and go, whereas with Coolsculpting the skin needs time to be massaged and de-thawed after treatment and has discomfort post treatment.
TruScupt® 3D can literally go anywhere on the body Trusculpt® 3D gets to higher temperature in the fat for more fat destruction
Trusculpt® 3D goes deeper for more results in sculpting

Q. When will I see results after TruSculpt® 3D?
A. After the treatment, your body’s immune system will start to break down and flush out the fat cells that were treated leading to circumferential reduction. Everyone’s body does so at a different rate however, on average, people will see results for fat around 6-8 weeks after the treatment and continuing improvement up to 3 months, however people report seeing tightening within two weeks of treatment.
Q. What can I expect during the Trusculpt® 3D treatment?
A. TruSculpt® 3D is comfortable and requires no anesthetic. During your treatment, a hand piece that emits radiofrequency energy is placed over the targeted area. Pulses of energy cause fat cells to heat up and shrink, promoting skin contraction for a slimming and smoothing effect. There is no downtime with this treatment, allowing you to return to your normal activity following treatment. Most people report it feels like a hot stone massage. Patients will see significant improvement approximately 12 weeks following 1 TruSculpt® 3D session. Additional sessions may be required to obtain desired results.
