Is TruSculpt Permanent?

You’ve spent more time working out than you’ve wanted to. You’ve denied yourself scrumptious baked goods for months. You haven’t even touched a drop of alcohol despite all of your friends imbibing while the game was on. Nonetheless, your ideal contours elude you. At Burt and Will Plastic Surgery and Dermatology in Burr Ridge, IL, we proudly offer TruSculpt.

Is TruSculpt Permanent?

Yes, TruSculpt provides permanent results. The reason the results of this treatment last forever is that it destroys fat cells, and fat cells cannot be regenerated past the age of 25. Therefore, if you are at least 25 years old when you receive your treatments, your body can’t grow new fat cells to replace the ones that are destroyed.

Nevertheless, you should keep in mind that this treatment does not eliminate every fat cell in the area targeted for treatment. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that you maintain a healthy lifestyle to maintain your desired contours. If you eat and drink too many calories after your treatment, excess energy may be stored in the remaining fat cells in the areas of concern.

How Does This Body Contouring Treatment Work?

TruSculpt destroys subcutaneous fat cells by harnessing the power of RF (radiofrequency) energy. The results of this RF treatment aren’t just permanent; they’re also dramatic. Over the course of just three months, your lymphatic system will pick up, process, and eliminate destroyed adipose tissue from the treatment areas. As a general rule, this treatment can remove almost a quarter of the fat cells in an area of concern, but individual results are unique.

Notably, this powerful treatment is an ideal body contouring method because it doesn’t just eliminate fat cells permanently. The heat from the radiofrequency energy encourages your skin to produce extra collagen, a crucial supportive protein. Thanks to the extra collagen production, your skin will tighten up quickly after your treatment, so you don’t need to worry about loose, sagging skin preventing you from enjoying your final results fully.

What Should I Expect During This Treatment?

You should expect to feel neither pain nor discomfort during your permanent fat removal session. Notably, clients often comment on how relaxing the fat removal treatment is. Many people find that this treatment feels like a hot stone massage due to the warmth the radiofrequency energy delivers. We will apply small applicators to your skin in one of your areas of concern very gently during your fat removal session. These small applicators will emit RF energy through your skin.

This warms the adipose tissue cells in the area and takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. Then, if necessary, we will move the applicators to the skin on another region of your body. Once we have treated each area of concern, you are free to return to work. You should expect no downtime following this treatment at all. Also, you don’t have to worry about serious side effects, like skin bleaching or burning after your session is over.

How Many Sessions Are Required for Ideal Results

To find out how many treatment sessions you will need to achieve your ideal contours, you need to come in for an initial consultation. During this primary evaluation, we will discuss your ideal physique and assess your current body fat distribution.

Then, we can advise you on how many treatment sessions you can expect to need. Typically, people only need a session or two per area of concern to sculpt their desired aesthetic. However, if you are not yet near your goal weight, you may need more than two RF fat removal sessions to sculpt your desired contours.

Areas That Can Be Targeted for Treatment

Typically, people seek this permanent fat removal treatment to target fairly large areas, like the abdomen, back, sides, or hips. Nevertheless, this treatment can remove excess fat from smaller areas permanently, including the underarms, upper arms, thighs, and knees. During your initial evaluation, advise us on all of your areas of concern.

We will assess each area to verify that there is enough excess fat in the trouble region to qualify for fat removal. Just keep in mind that sometimes there is too much excess fat stored in an area of concern to qualify for RF fat removal. Irrespective, we will customize a contouring plan for you that will improve your aesthetic.

How Should I Prepare for My Fat Removal Treatment?

Due to the non-invasive nature of this fat removal method, there is very little preparation required in advance of the treatment. We recommend eating a nutritious snack or small, healthy meal before you come in for your session. We also recommend drinking at least two cups of hydrating fluids within 120 minutes of your scheduled appointment.

Finally, it is advisable to attend your appointment free from jewelry or cosmetics in the targeted treatment areas. This helps to ensure your treatment goes as quickly as it can.

What Makes This an Ideal Fat Removal Method?

It Is Highly Accessible

This fat removal method’s accessibility is one benefit that makes it superior to other fat removal methods. Most people qualify for this fat removal treatment irrespective of their weight, and it is safe for adults irrespective of their skin tone and type.

It Is Very Convenient

Most other fat removal methods require up to half of a dozen sessions before the ideal results can be realized. In contrast, people rarely need more than two RF fat removal sessions to achieve their desired aesthetic. Since it only takes around 15 minutes to treat each area of concern, you shouldn’t expect to commit more than a couple of hours to achieving your ideal figure.

It Encourages Extra Collagen Growth

To reiterate, the warmth emitted by the RF energy induces extra collagen growth. Thanks to this extra collagen growth, your skin is encouraged to tighten as the destroyed fat cells are being flushed out of your body. This is a huge advantage because sagging skin almost always accompanies rapid weight loss.

Another huge advantage of extra collagen production is your skin will look younger and healthier due to collagen’s role in facilitating cellular turnover. Put another way, the superficial layer of your skin that comprises dead skin cells will be replaced with healthy skin cells.

Other Benefits of Radiofrequency Fat Removal


Customizability is yet another benefit of radiofrequency fat removal. Your treatment plan will involve removing unwanted fat from your specific areas of concern, but we won’t waste your time or money sculpting areas you’re already happy with. Also, due to how small the applicators are, you can expect extremely precise contouring. You can rest assured your contours will be amazing once your short course of treatments is complete.

Natural-Looking Results

Another benefit of radiofrequency fat removal is that you will enjoy results that look completely natural. There are a couple of reasons for this. First, we can sculpt your desired contours very precisely due to the diminutive applicators. Second, it takes several weeks for your lymphatic system to flush out all of the destroyed fat cells. Therefore, by all appearances, you are losing body fat through a clean diet and regular exercise.

Enhanced Self-Image

Just a few short months following your fat removal treatments, you will feel much more comfortable in your own skin. The enhanced self-image you will enjoy following your treatments can give you the confidence to try things you otherwise wouldn’t have tried.

Furthermore, once a large portion of your subcutaneous fat has been removed, you will look far more toned. Your new, toned look may motivate you to put on even more muscle mass, further enhancing your aesthetic.


Another incredible benefit of this fat removal method is that it is not invasive at all. There is no need for incisions, stitches, or bandages. There is no need for anesthesia, and there is no downtime required following the treatment session. If you’re only targeting an area or two for fat removal, you may be able to attend your appointment during your lunch break and take no time off from work at all.
