Spot reduction is a big myth. You can do all the crunches you want, but they won’t magically eliminate a muffin top. When your body burns fat, you lose it all over, not just in one area of your body, no matter which muscles you use.
So how is it possible to get rid of exercise-resistant fat? With noninvasive body contouring performed by the experienced team of Drs. Radoslav and Kevin Jovanovic in New York City. The doctors have helped many women and men finally get the body shape they’ve envisioned with quick, nonsurgical treatment using Cutera truSculpt®.
Body contouring refers to a variety of aesthetic procedures that reduce fat, especially localized areas of fat that stick around despite attempts to remove it through diets and exercise. Before today’s cutting-edge lasers were available, eliminating fat meant surgery.
Advanced medical devices like the Cutera truSculpt give you a noninvasive option to body contouring, permanently removing the fat when exercise doesn’t help.
Cutera is the company that developed truSculpt, a state-of-the-art body contouring system. It uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat fat cells beneath your skin while keeping the surface of your skin at a comfortable temperature.
The RF energy heats fat cells to a temperature that liquifies them. As the cells are destroyed, your body gradually but naturally removes them as waste, so the fat is permanently eliminated.
Before your body contouring session, Dr. Jovanovic talks with you about your body, what areas you don’t like, and your goal for fat reduction. This discussion is important to be sure truSculpt will deliver the results you envision.
When it’s time for your session, you can lie back and relax. Most of our patients say that treatment with truSculpt feels like a hot-stone massage. Your doctor places a flat applicator against your skin, then guides it over the area while it sends RF energy through your skin and into the targeted fat.
Most treatment sessions take about an hour, but it depends on the number of areas you want to treat. When the procedure is finished, you can get back to your daily schedule. Your skin may appear slightly red for a short time, but you don’t need to take time off for recovery.
RF energy is safe for any type of skin and can be used no matter where your pocket of fat is located. Many people get truSculpt treatment to remove fat on their abdomen, thighs, and buttocks, but it can tackle any area.
Now that you know how truSculpt works, the big question is: When will results appear?
Before your first session, you’ll have a good idea about what results to expect and the number of treatments you may need to reach your fat-reduction goal. Patients seldom need more than a few sessions.
You’ll need to be patient because it takes a little time for your body to clear away all the cellular waste. You should start seeing the improvement in about four weeks, with optimal results evident within 12 weeks.
Remember that the results are permanent, so it’s worth the wait! Just be sure to schedule your treatment ahead of time if you want to reduce fat in time for a special event like a wedding or reunion.
When you decide to lose nagging fat with truSculpt, you’ll see other cosmetic advantages: skin tightening and smoother looking cellulite. The same heat used to destroy fat cells also affects collagen.
At first, heat makes the existing collagen contract, which has a short-term but nearly immediate skin-tightening effect. Then the heat stimulates collagen production, which is essential for strong, healthy skin.
As your skin sheds old cells at the surface, they’re replaced with new cells that are stronger thanks to the boost in collagen, creating skin that’s tighter and better toned.
If you’ve had enough of exercising without seeing a change in the pockets of fat in your belly, arms, thighs, or elsewhere on your body, call Drs. Radoslav and Kevin Jovanovic. They’re available to help you determine if you’re a good candidate for fat reduction with Cutera truSculpt and to help you finally achieve the body shape you’ve worked hard to obtain.
