Introducing truSculpt® 3D
A New Dimension in Body Sculpting
You’re watching what you eat, you’re staying active, but you’re still unhappy with your body shape. Sound familiar? That stubborn problem area on your waistline can be annoyingly resistant to diet and exercise. That’s where the truSculpt® 3D procedure can help. Developed by Cutera, the global pioneer in performance and innovation within the cosmetic and aesthetic laser device field, the non-invasive, truSculpt® 3D procedure can help you sculpt your body by quickly and easily targeting both large and small problem areas.
We recently interviewed J. Kevin Buchanan, MD, Knoxville area’s family practice physician and truSculpt® 3D practitioner, to discover just how this revolutionary, new, state-of-the-art medical breakthrough can help patients treat those problem areas around their midsection.
EK: Dr. Buchanan, truSculpt® 3D uses radio frequency technology to help decrease circumference and diminish fat in patients. Tell our readers just how this technology works.
Dr. Buchanan: truSculpt® 3D uses conductive radio frequency to achieve selective and effective disruption of the subcutaneous fat tissue, the fat that lies directly beneath the skin, while maintaining comfortable surface temperatures.
EK: Just how safe is truSculpt® 3D?
Dr. Buchanan: truSculpt® 3D, which is FDA cleared, is a safe, non-invasive body sculpting technology, where the temperature of the skin and subcutaneous tissue are maintained at comfortable levels while consistently achieving the best results.
EK: How quickly will clients see visible results?
Dr. Buchanan: Visible results can usually be seen as soon as 6 to 12 weeks, with maximum benefits at 12 weeks. Some clients see results in just 4 to 6 weeks.
EK: How much fat thickness reduction will patients experience?
Dr. Buchanan: Clients can expect fat reduction of targeted areas of up to 24%.
EK: Is it possible to treat more than one problem area per session?
Dr. Buchanan: Yes, it is possible to treat multiple areas in a single session, including the neck, upper arms, abdomen and flanks, back, and thighs.
EK: Should clients experience any discomfort or downtime after the procedure?
Dr. Buchanan: Some clients may experience some redness of the skin that typically resolves itself in 8 to 12 hours. Others report soreness of the treatment area that may last for a few days. There is no restriction on activity following the procedure.
EK: Treatments are administered by a nurse practitioner or medical assistant under your personal supervision, correct?
Dr. Buchanan: We have a nurse practitioner, two medical assistants, and myself who are all trained and certified to perform the truSculpt® 3D procedure.
EK: How can our readers who are interested learn more about the truSculpt® 3D? What is the best way to reach you?
