TruSculpt 3D is an innovation RF (Radio Frequency) device that gives the skin-deep heat. Scottsdale, AZ board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Carlos Mata, a.k.a. Dr. Scottsdale, uses this to cause the fat cells to die thus creating non-invasive fat reduction, body sculpting/contouring treatment. In the process, it can temporally reduce the appearance of cellulite. It is designed to treat almost any area of the body. A sample of areas include the abdomen, flanks, thighs, buttocks, arms and other stubborn regions where fat lingers. TruSculpt 3D is comfortable and requires no anesthetic. It is virtually pain free. Most patients describe the treatment as a hot stone massage and others report almost no sensation of heat at all.
"I had two procedures done earlier this year by Dr. Mata. The tummy tuck was in January 2016 and following after in February, thigh lift. After working out so many years, it was the excess skin and fat I had removed. For all my future procedures and for friends and family, I definitely recommend Dr. Mata. Growing up with physicians in my family ( my mother was a Pediatrician), he has a wonderful disposition very reminiscent of the days when doctors cared and took all the time you needed to address concerns. Dr. Mata also made sure I was mentally prepared for the procedures and was 100% transparent with what I can expect. It's not a form of weight loss, but body sculpting. He has a very nurturing way about him as well. My healing experience has been the most positive under his care and the care of the staff. You are given written directions and the nurses will answer any questions you have. After the procedures, of course, new clothes feel great in smaller sizes, but it's not seeing the unwanted skin and fat, always getting larger sizes to disguise my trouble spots that brings me happiness. I have no regrets. I highly recommend Dr. Mata and I'm so grateful. My arms are next! :-)"- L.N. / Google / Jul 06, 2016

During a typical treatment, a small hand piece releases radiofrequency energy. This is placed over the targeted area and a small surrounding area. This energy cause fat cells to heat up and program them to liquefy and be removed through the lymphatic process after dying. The energy released from the heat from the TruSculpt 3D also causes skin contraction for a slimming and smoothing effect on the skin. There is no downtime with this treatment, allowing you to return to your normal activity following treatment immediately. Patients will see significant improvement approximately 8 weeks following one TruSculpt 3D treatment and full results up to 3 months after. Additional sessions may be required to obtain desired results if more than usual results are expected.
During/After the Treatment
After a brief pre-treatment preparation, the TruSculpt 3D handpiece is applied to the skin. The handpiece will deliver a pulse of RF (Radio Frequency) energy that will last 15 minutes on each treatment area. The handpiece will then be moved to the next treatment area to which this process will be repeated until the entire treatment area has been covered. The TruSculpt 3D System is designed to provide an easy and relaxed procedure for non-invasive fat removal and body sculpting/contouring. The small issues that can arise include redness, sweating and mild tenderness in the treated areas. This may last up to a full day depending on your skin type. Bruising in the treatment area does occur but rarely. Usually, most of the side effects resolve in an hour.
A unique advantage of the TruSculpt 3D is that it is well documented to help tighten lax skin because of the radio frequency energy. RF has been used for many years as an energy source for tightening facial skin. Modifying how the energy is delivered by the TruSculpt 3D, lets the device decrease fat and tighten the skin at the same time.
