In August last year, I decided to try truSculpt – a radiofrequency device that causes fat destruction through sustained heat to the fat cells. I have some stubborn fat around my belly area that I’ve been unable to budge, even with a healthy diet and exercise.
The treatment regime consisted of three sessions, each one month apart. It’s been 3 months since my final truSculpt session with Dr Theva and it’s time for my follow up appointment to review the results.
There is definitely a noticeable loss of fat from my abdomen – truSculpt really works! After the fat cells have been destroyed by the heat from the probe, the body gets rid of them. And the best part is that once they are gone, they are gone for good – as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and don’t gain excessive weight.
What I really liked about truSculpt was that the sessions were quick (30-45 minutes) and relatively painless. But one thing I should mention, if you are considering having truSculpt, is to make sure your practitioner uses a wheat bag to adequately warm up the treatment area beforehand. If the fat is already pre-warmed, there is no pain whatsoever and the treatment is quite comfortable. However if the fat is cold when the treatment commences, it can be painful because the probe heats up the area very quickly (think how it feels initially if you are cold and get into a hot bath – ouch!)
Overall I am thrilled with the results from truSculpt, they are better than I expected. The little fat pouch that I had before has virtually disappeared and my clothes fit me better. I am no longer ashamed of my tubby tummy! And the best thing about it is that it has increased my self-confidence and motivated me to continue to improve my appearance by working out more at the gym and sticking to a healthy lifestyle ☺
