Discover the amazing new body contouring treatment that you could get in Hinsdale and South Barrington, IL.

Perhaps this year you vowed to lose weight and keep it off.  It seems simple enough if you eat healthy and exercise regularly, however, trusculptthis isn’t always enough for some people. Sometimes, despite someone’s best efforts, it’s nearly impossible to lose stubborn fat from areas such as the stomach, sides or thighs. Of course, not everyone wants to go through surgeries or other invasive procedures in order to shed the unwanted fat.  In addition to CoolSculpting and Liposuction, our two Dermatology offices in Willowbrook and South Barrington, IL have the answer you’ve been looking for!  Dr. Jeffrey Berti and Dr. Toula Berti now also perform TruSculpt.

What is TruSculpt?

This FDA- approved cosmetic treatment uses non-invasive radio frequency to gently and safely heat up deeper layers of fatty tissue to help dissolve unwanted fat and recontour these areas of the body,  while also providing skin tightening results. TruSculpt can be used on all skin types and is most often used to target excess fat around the stomach, back, thighs, neck and arm bulges.

What should I expect when I get TruSculpt?

The device is directed over the skin to painlessly target and heat up the target area. The device will direct pulses of energy to the area, with each pulse lasting about 4 minutes before we move on to the next area. The length of treatment will depend on the size of the area you wish to treat. It can take anywhere from 25 minutes to one hour to complete your treatment. There are many benefit to this, first and foremost, there is no downtime after your treatment!  Also, there are no restrictions for exercise or alterations needed to your diet.

Who is a good candidate for TruSculpt?

When you come in for a consultation with our Willowbrook and South Barrington, IL skin doctors, they will be able to determine whether you are right for this cosmetic procedure. Ideal candidates will want to remove excess bulges that are stubborn. 

Those with pacemakers, patients who are pregnant and those who have metal implants near the area they wish to treat are not ideal candidates.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

We will discuss how many treatment sessions are necessary but the average patient will need approximately 3 treatments to achieve the results they want.

When will I notice results?

It can take anywhere from one to three months for the adipose tissue to fully break down and be removed from the body. Once this happens you will start to see an ideal shape.

If you are tired of having a stomach that sticks out over your jeans or you’re embarrassed by your flabby arms, then it’s time you called Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery, Ltd. with either Dr. Jeffrey Berti or Dr. Toula Berti in Willowbrook and South Barrington, IL, to schedule your complimentary consultation.

What you need to know about TruSculpt from your Willowbrook and South Barrington dermatologists.

Summer is almost here, and it will soon be time to hit the beach. Is your body ready to be shown off? If you have stubborn fat deposits on your waist, stomach, thighs or hips, now there is a revolutionary new way to get rid of this unwanted fat. It’s called TruSculpt and your Coolsculptdoctors at Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery in Willowbrook and South Barrington, IL want to help you get your body ready for summer.

TruSculpt uses radio frequency, or RF technology, which involves a comfortable heat emitted from a handpiece. This is unlike CoolSculpt, which uses freezing to remove fatty tissue instead of heat. The heat breaks down your fatty tissues, reducing unwanted cellulite and fat from your abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. TruSculpt can be used on all skin types and is FDA approved, so you can be assured your body will be sculpted and contoured beautifully and safely.

In contrast to liposuction, TruSculpt is a non-surgical procedure, so there are no incisions, sutures or downtime. Your treatment at Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery will take less than an hour and will be painless, with no stinging, discomfort or irritation. And since there is no downtime, you can go on with your day right after the procedure. You will notice results within the first weeks, though you may need to continue treatments for up to three months.

There’s still plenty of time to get your beach body just in time for summer, with the help of TruSculpt. Don’t go see just anyone; seek out an expert.
