How does truSculpt work?
truSculpt is an (RF) energy-based procedure that delivers controlled, yet comfortable, doses of therapeutic heat to a chosen target zone. Radio frequency (RF) is a type of energy, delivered by heat, that passes through even the natural resistance of fatty tissue. In doing so, it deliberately causes a small amount of damage to the fat cells where the truSculpt is applied. The body then slowly “cleans out” and removes the injured fat cells by a mechanism called apoptosis. The best way to explain apoptosis is to realize that the body naturally cleanses our body all the time. There is significant turnover of cells in our liver, skin and bowels. We don’t grow new fat cells (unlike the liver or skin) after puberty so once the injured fat calls are removed by apoptosis they are gone for good.
