Sculpt Your Way to a Better Body

Spot reduction is impossible. No matter how hard you try, you can’t dictate where your body will lose fat. Genetics plays a big role in where your body stores extra fat, and even when you’re in good shape and close to your ideal healthy weight, you may still carry pockets of fat that ruin your ideal body image.

While there are no fad diets or special crunches or lifts that can target these fat stores in isolation, technology can. At Robert Andrews Laser & Medical Aesthetics in Colorado Springs, Colorado, we help our patients bypass nature’s body blocks and tackle tough fat pockets with truSculpt® 3D, a safe and noninvasive solution to stubborn bulges. Here’s how it works.

Understanding body fat

All body fat is not created equal. In fact, you have several different types of fat in varying quantities, and they each serve different purposes.

Fat is necessary for healthy functioning, but too much of the wrong kind can cause health problems. A sensible diet and regular physical activity can prevent many major medical concerns, but it doesn’t mean you’ll be able to dictate where you lose and keep fat.

How your body fat is distributed is largely dependent upon genetics. When you make efforts to lose weight, your body draws from the stores of fat around your body, but you can’t control when and where. If you’re at this point in your weight-loss or body-perfecting journey and feel frustrated by your inability to “spot lose,” truSculpt may be the answer.

How truSculpt does what diet and exercise can’t

The number of fat cells in your body is set during adolescence. When you gain and lose weight, those fat cells expand and shrink, but they never multiply or decrease in number.

So, if you have a muffin top, love handles, or lumpy thighs that you can’t seem to slim down, you may have a genetic predisposition to store fat there. 

To change that, you need to target those specific fat cells with the technology in truSculpt. Our team uses a handheld device that hovers over your skin and emits powerful laser energy called monopolar radiofrequency. 

As the energy penetrates the layers of your skin, it targets the stubborn fat cells deep down below the surface. Your fat cells absorb the heat and self-destruct. Over the next few weeks and months, these dead fat cells leave your body, never to return again. Unlike diets and exercise that shrink your fat cells, truSculpt eliminates them forever.

In a comfortable, 15-minute session, you can lose up to 24% of the fat cells in the treated area. While it may take a few weeks before you see the full effect, the wait is well worth it. 

And your truSculpt treatment comes with a bonus in that it also tightens your skin during the process by stimulating collagen production, which increases and coagulates the fibrous structure under your skin.

If you’re battling resistant fat stores in your belly, thighs, flanks, back, arms, or under your chin, truSculpt can do what diet and exercise can’t. To find out if truSculpt is right for you, call us to schedule an appointment today and get ready for summer.
