Localised weight loss is a stubborn exercise myth that refuses to go away. It makes sense, doesn’t it? Exercise the area you want to slim; the muscle will tone and the fat will burn.
Well, that’s only half true.
Let’s take one of the most sought-after areas of the body: the stomach. The conventional wisdom was that if you did you crunches and worked your obliques, after a while you would gain a flat stomach and, not only that, a six-pack would be achievable. Unfortunately, fat loss doesn’t work like that.
While your body is predisposed to deposit fat in certain places (hips, stomach, thighs, buttocks, underarms) it uses fat for fuel evenly from around the body. Exercising those trouble areas will tone and strengthen the muscle there – but unless your body content is low enough, no definition will show.
So what’s the solution?
Getting your total body fat percentage down to a low enough level for an even distribution of body fat deposits is a long and onerous task. That’s not to mention a level where definition of muscle is evident. These approaches require strict dieting and liquid intake, and rigorous exercise routines – all to target a few problem areas of the body.
That’s where TruSculpt™ comes in.
How does TruSculpt™ work?
TruSculpt™ is a non-invasive treatment for areas of the body with moderate excess body fat. It directly targets those stubborn areas of body fat and can, within a few treatment and several weeks, reduce unwanted fatty tissue. TruSculpt™ is applied via a device upon the surface of the skin. It uses radio frequency to penetrate the upper surface of the skin, targeting underlying excess tissue and heating the fat cells. A proportion of these fat cells will die off, being naturally disposed of by the body, and will lead to localised fat reduction.
Does TruSculpt™ hurt?
Not at all. At most you will feel a warm, heating sensation. Unlike the heat applied by, say, a heat pack, this sensation is caused by the radio waves bombarding your body tissue. The sensation will not last, and no post-treatment procedures are necessary.
How long does TruSculpt™ take?
Typically, a few TruSculpt™ treatments are needed over several weeks. However, treatments are between 30 minutes to an hour, and normal activity can be immediately resumed.
But don’t give up exercise just yet!
Exercise – both cardio and weights-based – has a tremendous range of benefits for your body – both inside and out! So while TruSculpt™ certainly is the missing piece of the puzzle when it comes to reducing those final, stubborn areas of fat, always maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle – there’s no substitute for those!
