Up to 24% permanent fat reduction in just 15 minutes?
Join me as I try a body sculpting device that uses Radio-frequency Energy to heat layers of fat whilst maintaining a comfortable skin temperature to induce permanent fat loss.
TRUSCULPT ID - CUTERA
truSculpt iD treats the entire fat layer, resulting in an average of 24% fat reduction. The hand pieces can cover up to 300cm2 of treatment areas including the abdomen, legs, arms and under chin. The handles are placed onto a plastic sheet overlying the body and no suction is required for the device to work.
Full results are seen at 12 weeks post treatment and individuals may require more than one session. The procedure is suitable for any BMI but must not be used on those who may be pregnant or breast feeding or those with pacemakers. If you are considering treatment, always seek the advice of a medical professional.
Equivalent of 20,000 sit ups in 30 minutes, the ability to loose fat and gain muscle, this machine sounds too good to be true? Join me as I take a look at how it works, how it feels and whether it’s worth the hefty price tag of $1000 per session.
Emsculpt is marked as the world’s first and only device clinically proven to build muscle and burn fat with no downtime. It’s been TGA approved, FDA cleared and CE marked. I take a detailed look at the machine, see it in action and compare it to other popular body sculpting machines currently on the market and decide whether it’s worth it.
The machine uses High Intensity Focussed Electro-Magnetic Technology (HIFEM) to induce muscle contraction. Once the muscles are exposed to such contractions the tissue is forced to adapt to the extreme condition. It responds by remodelling the inner structure that results in muscle building and fat burning.
The machine can be used on arms, stomach and buttocks for a non-invasive butt lift. It claims to increase muscle mass by 16% and reduce fat on average by 19%.
A session can set you back a cool $1000AUD and on average 4 sessions are advised. Treatments are suggested to be twice a week for 2 weeks. Typically a maintenance treatment can be performed every 3-6 months.
The procedure may not suitable for everyone, for example, those with cardiac pacemakers, electronic implants or drug pumps. If you are considering treatment, always seek the advice of a medical professional.
I hope you have found this video useful and as always if you have any questions or comments please drop me a line below.
SculpSure Fat Melting Treatment | After 3 Months Results Show
In this episode we interview our patient after their SculpSure treatment targeting inner-thigh fat. Giving you first hand experience on what to expect after 3 months and most importantly if the patient would do it again.
During our childhood and adolescence we have a set number of fat cells that remain with us throughout our adult life. It’s the changes in the volume of the fat cell that causes our weight to rise and fall.
The problem is that fat cells are unevenly distributed among our body so while diet and exercise does reduce the size of the cells it doesn’t re-distribute them, leaving you with pockets of hard to shift areas.
This is the foundation that most fat reduction treatments are based on.
Stubborn pockets of fat are heated by laser up to 42-47C damaging the integrity of fat cells in the subcutaneous layer.
This form of fat reduction is licensed for areas including the tummy, love handles, back, inner and outer thighs and more recently the under chin area.
SculpSure takes 25 mins and 2 areas can be treated at the same time. It is reported that this method can reduce up to 24% of fat in a given area.
The main side effects that can occur, include a hot sensation which doesn’t burn but can feel pinching or tingling, bruising and firmness is also noted in the area following treatment.
Again, depending on the client 1-2 treatments are recommended with prices from A$600 per treatment. Full effects are to be noticed at 3 months.
In the next episode we catch up with our patient 3 months down the line and sit down one on one to find out how the post-treatment went and what results they experienced.
Take care and stay healthy
