truSculpt 3D - Fat Reduction Auckland

Sick of embarrassing double chin?

Have weight loss and exercise still left you with an embarrassing double chin? And do you wish to avoid the cost, risk and time off work of a surgical solution?

We are the first and now the most experienced clinic> to have the truSculpt 3D technology in all of Australasia. Dr Frances Pitsilis gave expert lectures in Asia in 2017 about this treatment.

How does truSculpt 3D work?

The under chin handpiece is placed statically over the skin while the safe radiofrequency energy targets the fat beneath. Skin temperature is continuously monitored so that the right temperature is delivered to the fat to cause fat cell damage and ultimately, fat cell death.

Belkyra®/ Kybella®

A small area requires one "stamp", whereas a large area may need 3 stamps - each stamp takes 4 minutes.

Although the target temperature on the skin is 43-45 degrees, the temperature in the fat is 2-2.5 degrees higher which is enough to damage fat cells.

After that, fat cells may die off over a period of several weeks.

This results in a new 3D approach to body sculpting.

Is there skin tightening with truSculpt 3D treatment ?

Yes - although the radiofrequency heat is attracted to the fat, it also tightens the skin on its way though. Clients may wish to have extra non invasive tightening with Titan®, Laser Genesis, and Vampire facial® as well. Dermal fillers can also help to contour the jawline.

Who is best suited to truSculpt 3D?

This treatment is suitable for normal weight people with BMI between 22-28. This may not be strictly necessary for the double chin treatment. truSculpt 3D is not a weight loss treatment.

How many treatments are needed?

Two to four treatments, 4-6 weeks apart.

How long does a fat reduction treatment take?

A standard treatment area takes 4-12 minutes to treat. Clients can go straight back to normal activities. This is a true walk-in, walk-out OR lunchtime procedure. Abdomen and flanks takes 60 minutes.

How long does it take to see results?

As the fat cells die, they are scavenged by the immune system and absorbed or disposed of by the body. Results can be seen as early as 6-8 weeks, but the best results are seen at 12 weeks.

What does the treatment feel like?

The treatment feels like a 'hot stone massage'. The treatment is comfortable, even relaxing, with no clamping, needles, freezing or extra equipment.

How much does it cost?

Double chin fat is a unique treatment area that has its own pricing. All treatments cost the same, no matter how many 'stamps' you need.

What after care advice is given?

You should maintain your ideal weight as well as a healthy lifestyle with exercise and diet. Any gain in body fat will cause existing fat cells all over your body to enlarge while leaving your body contours the same.

What are the side effects?

The area will be warm and slightly tender to touch for a few hours afterwards. Clients can go straight back to work.

The initial consultation includes accurate photography and body measurements as well as our unique ability to measure the fat layer with ultrasound. These are all repeated at 12 weeks to check results.

Trusculpt vs Belkyra

Belkyra® / Kybella® is coming...

We think truSculpt 3D is an easier, less demanding and more cost effective treatment, but Belkyra® may be useful for those who prefer it, or for the last bits of fat left after a course of truSculpt 3D

What is Belkyra®?

This is a FDA approved injectable treatment that dissolves under chin fat (double chin) . This product started its life as Kybella® in the USA a few years ago, but has been marketed under the new name of Belkyra® in other countries.

How does Belkyra® work?

The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid (gall bladder juice) which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that breaks down fat. When injected into the fat beneath your skin, Belkyra® causes the destruction of fat cells.

What is the treatment like?

It is a 20 minute office procedure with extra time needed for any numbing to be performed, which is recommended. Anatomical planning is performed first so that damage to vital structures is avoided. A typical treatment involves 14-40 small injections to be pleaced across the area - using a very small needle. Each treatment and dose is customized for each client.

How many treatments are needed?

Many clients see a visible contouring of their under chin profile in 2-4 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. Some may need 6 treatments.

Is there skin tightening with Belkyra®?

Yes - the inflammatory process that occurs with the treatment causes this.

Is there any down-time with Belkyra®?

For most clients, its minimal. Some experts recommend the wearing of a compressive neck band for one week after the procedure.

Some bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness in the area may cause some social down time for the first two days and up to a week. These symptoms reduce in subsequent treatments because there is less fat left.

Why only a specially trained clinic should administer Belkyra®?

Mainly because of the side effects mentioned above that should be managed by a medical clinic.

Also because, uncommonly, trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jawline can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness. To avoid this, accurate anatomical knowledge and placement must be performed.

How much does it cost?

Cost is related to how many vials are used per treatment.
