Body Sculpting Q & A
What is body sculpting?
Body sculpting is a treatment that destroys a portion of targeted fat cells using cold, heat, radiofrequency, or injected substances. At Family Practice of Suntree and Viera, body sculpting is performed using the truSculptⓇ flex and truSculptⓇ iD systems.
It can be frustrating to go through the hard work and sacrifice of diet and exercise only to find that your efforts can’t eliminate stubborn deposits of fat. Body sculpting offers a solution and a way to permanently eliminate fat cells without invasive procedures like liposuction.
Why is it so hard to get rid of stubborn fat?
Your body has fat cells spread from head to toe, most of which lie in a layer just beneath the surface of your skin. When you consume more calories than you burn, a portion of the excess is converted into fat and stored for later use.
Each of your fat cells has the ability to expand and contract to accommodate more or less fat. However, there’s no way to control which cells will release fat when you burn more calories than you consume. That can lead to trouble areas where fat lingers.
How do truSculpt systems work?
TruSculpt iD is a powerful treatment platform that uses monopolar radiofrequency energy to create heat in the complete layers of fat that extend from your skin to your muscle tissue. That heat damages the walls of targeted fat cells.
Many of those cells will collapse, releasing stored fat that is processed and eliminated through your lymphatic system. Even the cell debris is completely flushed from your body, and those fat cells won’t regenerate.
On average, treated areas experience around 24% fat reduction in the weeks following treatment. That can go a long way toward helping you reach your body sculpting goals.
TruSculpt flex does not destroy fat cells, but uses a special multidirectional stimulation (MDS) approach to deliver electrical stimulation to targeted muscles. The system has three treatment modes that simulate the muscle motions performed during crunching, squatting, and twisting.
There’s a prep mode that helps your muscles warm up before the intensity increases. MDS treatments mimic workouts and create the same improvements in muscle tone you’d achieve through traditional exercise. Treatments are fast and easy and can fit into virtually any schedule. TruSculpt flex is a great way to enhance your truSculpt iD results.
