Comparing Body Contouring Procedures CoolSculpting and truSculpt 3D

Despite a healthy diet and regular exercise, many individuals in Frederick and the surrounding areas in Maryland still have stubborn areas of fat that they would like to eliminate.

In fact, some patients fear spring and summer because they are so uncomfortable with the excess fat on various parts of their bodies.

Fortunately, truSculpt 3D can offer them an easy and effective way to treat unwanted fat and tighten skin.

What Is truSculpt 3D?

truSculpt 3D is a non-invasive treatment that has zero downtime. It uses radiofrequency to heat and destroy fat cells in various parts of the body.

This device is also able to improve loose skin in the treatment area, providing true body contouring results unlike any other treatment.

truSculpt 3D differs from CoolSculpting in several ways, including:

1. truSculpt 3D heats fat cells rather than freezes them like CoolSculpting.

2. truSculpt 3D can be used on all parts of the body and tightens skin, whereas CoolSculpting does not offer these benefits.

3. During a truSculpt 3D treatment, temperature can be adjusted to the patient’s preference, while CoolSculpting has fixed treatment settings which have been reported as uncomfortable.

Who Is a Candidate for truSculpt 3D?

Ideal truSculpt 3D candidates have fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise. For the best results, individuals are recommended to have a BMI of 30 or below.

Additionally, truSculpt 3D can safely treat all skin types.

The truSculpt 3D Procedure

First, patients are weighed and photographed. They are then placed in a comfortable reclining position before the procedure begins.

During the treatment, the truSculpt 3D device is placed on the skin’s surface and emits a series of pulses to heat fat cells. The skin and surrounding structures are not affected in this process.

Additionally, patients may provide feedback during the procedure, and energy settings can be adjusted accordingly. Most patients find truSculpt 3D to be a fairly comfortable experience.

The truSculpt 3D takes approximately 15 minutes to one hour, depending on the areas being treated.


One of the most appealing things about truSculpt 3D for patients in Frederick, Maryland is that one can resume all normal activities immediately after a treatment. That makes the truSculpt 3D procedure perfect for people who aren’t able to take long periods of time off from work.

Body Contouring Results

Fat reduction and tightening of the treated area can occur a few weeks to a couple of months after truSculpt3D.

For best results, providers often recommend one-to-two treatments per area spaced four-to-eight weeks apart.
