Is There Any Downtime Associated With Non-Surgical Body Contouring?

You put in hours at the gym, eat right, and keep active and engaged with the world around you. So it’s particularly frustrating when stubborn fat remains unaffected by your hard work. If you’re tired of the fat winning, Manhattan Aesthetics has the world’s latest technology to help. SculpSure® and TruSculpt® ID are just two non-surgical procedures capable of reducing your diet-and-exercise-resistant fat.

How SculpSure® and TruSculpt® ID Work

Both procedures work on the same principle: disrupt fat cell membranes to cause cell death, leaving the body’s natural lymphatic system to filter out the compromised cells. The SculpSure® laser specifically targets adipose tissue in places like the thighs, flanks, abdomen, buttocks, and arms with heated laser energy. The procedure is entirely safe, and the contact cooling feature regulates the temperature of your surrounding tissues. The result is a shapelier, more sculpted you, with a 24% fat cell reduction in just a single 25-minute procedure.

TruSculpt® ID takes this treatment to the next level, and Manhattan Aesthetics, in partnership with Cutera, the makers of TruSculpt® ID lasers, is proud to be the only practice in the world using this amazing technology. TruSculpt® ID is capable of treating 3x more area than CoolSculpting’s largest applicator and takes only 15 minutes to deliver monopolar radiofrequency energy deep into the entire adipose pad, not just the individual cells. As TruSculpt® ID deconstructs fat cells, it adjusts its energy output for different fat densities. This means it’s a learning system, so each patient’s unique physiology is treated to the fullest. It also rebuilds collagen to prevent skin laxity.

TruSculpt® ID is the only laser of its kind without a BMI or weight restriction, so for the first time, obese or morbidly obese patients are candidates for treatment.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

For SculpSure®, average fat loss is around 24% per session, and while TruSculpt® ID has shown similar results, for a few patients, they achieved an astonishing 35% reduction in ultrasound measurements. The procedures are not painful, and the fat cells don’t come back. That’s right, they’re gone entirely. Because of this, and because both treatments are highly customizable to treatment area size and shape, 95% of patients only require 1 treatment per target area to achieve their desired body contour. It is, however, not unusual for some patients with greater fat reduction goals to schedule two, or even three sessions.

Results and Downtime

The best part is there is no downtime. This is not a surgical procedure with a long recovery period. The body is designed to handle natural cell death, so you can work, play, and live your life reassured the treatment is working immediately following your session. The body needs time to filter out disrupted fat cells, so it takes several weeks for results to become visible. Maximum outcomes are typically reached at 12 weeks.

There is no other treatment in the world as comprehensive or as targeted to fat as what you’ll find in the offices of Manhattan Aesthetics. Our highly respected and highly trained team of medical practitioners is one-of-a-kind in patient care, industry knowledge, cutting edge experience, and customer service. Call us today.
