Are you looking for a way to get rid of pesky fat without going under the knife? In Overland Park, Kansas, many residents have seen drastic results with the truSculpt ID treatment offered by Mirabile M.D. Beauty, Health & Wellness. However, a lot of people aren’t really sure what truSculpt ID is, so we wanted to take the time to give our customers a detailed explanation of the procedure.

What is truSculpt?

truSculpt is a non-surgical procedure that can help patients remove fat in areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise. The procedure is safe and effective at removing up to 24 percent of fat in a specific area of the body and can reduce fat in any area of the body.

truSculpt works by heating deep layers of skin, which causes fat cells to die. As fat cells die, they are released through the body’s natural lymphatic system resulting in reduced inches and a slimmer appearance.  While cells begin to shrink immediately, it can take a several weeks for the full effect of the procedure to appear. Since the procedure is done without the need for surgery, no anesthetics are required during the course of the treatment.

Most of our patients love that the truSculpt procedure is fast! When we say fast, we mean it. The procedure itself only takes about 15 minutes, which is unlike many similar procedures that tend to take between 30 and 60 minutes. While one 15-minute session may be enough for some people, others may want to undergo multiple sessions to get their desired results.

There is no downtime with this type of procedure. However, some patients may have warm, flushed skin for up to an hour after the treatment is completed. Sensitivity to touch may also be an issue for a few days after the procedure.

When Do You See Results?

Results start to be noticeable right away for some patients; however, the full results may not manifest until 12 weeks after the initial treatment. If you are still looking for a more dramatic change, the truSculpt process can be repeated.

truSculpt vs. CoolSculpting

truSculpt is an alternative for CoolSculpting in Kansas City. Both methods are said to remove fat by killing fat cells in the body, but the two methods work in the exact opposite manner.

While truSculpt uses heat to destroy fat cells, CoolSculpting uses a machine that freezes the fat cells. Once frozen, the fat cells die, and they are eliminated through the body over the course of about two months. CoolSculpting treatments generally take around an hour, and since the treatment freezes fat cells, many patients report feeling intense cold and then numbness after a few minutes. CoolSculpt can only be used in areas where fat can be pinched because the machine pulls fat into a cup-like device to freeze the fat cells.

At Mirabile M.D., we recommend truSculpt to all of our patients, because it is a faster process that is more comfortable for many people than the CoolSculpting technique. Additionally, truSculpt patients can see up to 24% reduction in just one treatment whereas Coolsculpting requires multiple treatments to achieve similar results.
