Nonsurgical Body Contouring Ideal Candidates
Nonsurgical body sculpting is an effective treatment option for individuals with a wide variety of skin types. Our team at Vital Health & Wellness Center is proud to provide this advanced procedure as a means of helping our patients to reach their personal image goals without the challenges typically associated with surgical treatment options. The candidates for nonsurgical body contouring with truSculpt iD are individuals who:
- Have stubborn fat pockets that will not respond to diet and exercise
- Are at or near their target body weight
- Have been able to maintain a stable weight
- Are not currently pregnant and are not expecting to be pregnant
- Do not have any metallic implants, a pacemaker, or an internal defibrillator
Nonsurgical Body Contouring Treatment Technique
Nonsurgical body contouring is a safe, noninvasive treatment involving a handheld device so no anesthesia is required for the procedure. Once your personal treatment plan has been created by Dr. Vital, your procedure will be scheduled for a convenient time at our office and requires only 15 – 30 minutes, depending on the total size and number of areas being addressed. To target and eliminate the unwanted deposits of fat, Dr. Vital or an experienced member of our team will move the handheld device evenly over an area of your skin. By utilizing monopolar radiofrequency technology, the fat deposits are heated, causing the cells to effectively break down. A large number of our patients have reported that the treatment has caused them mild discomfort at most and can be comparable to a hot stone massage.
What to Expect with Nonsurgical Body Contouring
Once the treatment is completed, you may experience some mild discomfort in the treated areas, including redness, tenderness, or inflammation. These side effects are common and typically dissipate naturally over the course of several days. The truSculpt iD technology has been designed to specifically target fat cells, and it will not cause harm or unexpected disruptions to the skin in the treated areas. A majority of our clients have been able to achieve a noticeable reduction in the number of fat cells present in a specific area following only a single session, but multiple appointments scheduled 6 – 8 weeks apart may be required to achieve ideal results. Dr. Vital will provide more information about how many treatments could be required during your consultation.
Reshape and Refine
If you’re close to or have achieved your target body weight but still struggle with deposits of fat that have stayed resistant to diet and exercise, then nonsurgical body contouring using truSculpt iD technology by Cutera could be an ideal solution.
