Alright, let’s talk about truSculpt. I was skeptical at first, I mean anything other than CoolSculpt with the word “sculpt” in it kind of sets off alarm bells for me. truSculpt is meant to reduce fat and tighten the skin on the desired area, but with heat instead of cold. I’m going to walk you guys through the actual procedure and then talk about results.
So the procedure is very quick. At least for the under chin area that I was doing, I think something like 15 minutes. I laid down, the doctor put a grounding pad on my stomach, and then we started. He aimed a handheld transducer under my chin, and so it began.
I’m not going to lie, it was REALLY HOT. I now understand what it means to burn fat. The doctor kept checking in with me to see how I was handling the temperature, and I survived. It was not pleasant. But much like with laser hair removal, no pain no gain. The higher the temperature you can handle, the better the results you will see.
Certain spots were much more sensitive to the heat than others, or in other words, some places I really felt the heat and other I didn’t feel anything so I would assume that depending on the part of the body you are having truSculpting done on the pain/heat level would change.
TruSculpt for the chin is less expensive per session, and the time per session is less than CoolSculpt, but you need to have more sessions to see results. I, for some reason, saw results immediately, maybe because I don’t have a lot of body fat to start with. The next day I noticed less skin hanging down under my chin, the doctor told me that the first few days after I would notice it looking tighter, but it’s remained this way for two weeks.
I’ll definitely do another session just to see if I can reduce it more, and I’ll post photos for you guys, of course so that you can see the results for yourself. I’m not changing anything in my skincare or diet either so it’s just straight-up truSculpt working its magic. Who knew.
