5 Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Body Contouring Treatment

Posted by Dr Theva in Body.

After working out hard and experiencing significant weight loss, you may find that stubborn pockets of excess fat can remain in common problem areas such as your thighs, abdomen, and under your chin.

This remaining fat can prevent you from looking and feeling your best. The good news is that nonsurgical body contouring procedures are available. They can further improve your appearance and give you a smoother, more sculpted look.

Here at Dr T’s Aesthetics in Melbourne, we recommend our TruBody experience with TruSculpt iD and TruSculpt Flex for all of your body contouring needs. 

Between the 2 machines, they effectively target and destroy fat cells resistant to diet and exercise plus sculpt and build muscle. 

If you aren’t ready for cosmetic surgery and want to know more about non-surgical body contouring treatments, read on.

What is nonsurgical body contouring

What is TruSculpt iD?

TruSculpt iD is a state-of-the-art, radio-frequency based fat reduction treatment that specifically targets fat cells and permanently melts away unwanted fat. This truly innovative system provides a non-invasive, comfortable heat treatment that is uniquely customisable and highly effective in permanently removing stubborn fat.

TruSculpt iD works by heating the fat cells in the treatment area. The cells are irreversibly damaged and then excreted through the body’s lymphatic system naturally over a 12-week period. The treatment triggers apoptosis (programmed cell death).

What is TruSculpt Flex?

TruSculpt Flex+ is an Award-Winning muscle-sculpting technology that adjusts to your fitness level, body shape, and goals to strengthen, firm, and tone your muscles.

It’s a comfortable, safe, and effective technology that is clinically proven to increase muscle mass by an average of 30%.

Using unique Multi-Directional Stimulation (MDS) technology, it replicates real-life muscle contractions similar to when we perform crunching, squatting and twisting actions at the gym. This Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) then tones and strengthens muscles evenly and precisely.

Types of Non-Surgical Body Contouring

Non-surgical body contouring procedures generally fall into one of the following categories:

  1. Fat freezers via cryolipolysis
  2. Fat melters with lasers, radio-frequency (RF), and/or thermal energy (i.e. TruSculpt iD)
  3. Electromagnetic muscle toners (i.e TruSculpt Flex)
  4. Fat-dissolving and collagen-building injectables (i.e. Kybella) 

These treatments are not for weight loss. Instead, they are designed to fine-tune problem areas of the body — like the stomach, thighs, upper arms, under the chin or butt — for a more sculpted appearance. While these procedures destroy unwanted extra fat, tone and build muscle, or smooth cellulite, they are considered a less invasive alternative to plastic surgery. 

Even so, following the advice below will help optimise and maintain your results.

Do Your Research

There are many options for body contouring out there these days, and noninvasive body contouring procedures are very popular. You may hear about them a lot and see them advertised everywhere, so always do your research—both on the treatment itself and also your provider. Reading reviews from other people’s experiences and seeing real results from your provider will help you choose the right treatment for you.

If you are still unsure, book a Non-obligation consultation to see which nonsurgical body contouring procedures are right for you and your body goals.

Are you a good candidate?

As mentioned, these machines are not weight loss machines, or can they replace a healthy diet and exercise. 

You will need to establish first if you are the right candidate before treatment for the best results.

The best candidate for TruSculpt iD are close to their ideal body weight and have a body mass index of 30 or less. 

For TruSculpt Flex, you are a good candidate if you wish to sculpt, build, tone, and enhance existing muscle mass or if you are recovering from a surgical procedure or injury and are unable to exercise.

If you’ve been told that you aren’t a good candidate for a different body contouring procedure, TruSculpt may still be a suitable option for you. The best way to find out for sure is by booking a consultation with us.

Drink Plenty of Water

The number one piece of post-procedure advice is to keep hydrated. Drinking plenty of water after your treatment can help you not just stay hydrated but also flush out unwanted fat cells and toxins from your body.

Eat a Well Balanced Healthy Diet

Yes, the fat cells that melt off during a TruSculpt iD treatment are removed permanently. But it doesn’t stop new fat cells from forming or the remaining fat cells from growing.

For maximum results, you should continue to maintain a healthy, well-balanced diet. A well-balanced diet consists of lots of veggies and fruits and lowers your fat and salt intake.

If healthy habits are not formed and a well-balanced diet is not implemented, it can ultimately reverse any effects of the TruSculpt iD treatment.

Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle & Stay Active

As we age, our metabolism naturally slows down. As the pounds creep up, we put our bodies at higher risk for diabetes, heart disease and other serious health issues. A healthy diet and regular exercise keep our metabolism high.

The more muscle mass we have, the quicker our bodies burn calories. By exercising and keeping our bodies strong, we can maintain a healthy weight and reduce our chances of sickness and disease.

Regular exercise doesn’t only reduce excess weight, it also relieves stress.

One of the keys to living a long, happy, healthy life is the ability to reduce stress and anxiety.

Exercise reduces stress, making it more likely to live longer, healthier and happier.
