Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center offers truSculpt treatments to the residents of Pasadena, CA. We also service Los Angeles, CA. Cellulite is a common and challenging problem faced by many of Dr. Rigor’s patients. Women typically develop cellulite, and the condition is rare in men. Metabolic and hormonal changes, dieting and heredity are common causes of cellulite. When the connective tissues of the skin separate, small fatty deposits seep through the small openings and create the bumpy appearance of cellulite. truSculpt treatments use radio frequency energy to deep heat the tissue under the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
How can truSculpt treatments by Dr. Rigor improve my appearance?
In cities such as Pasadena and Los Angeles, CA, where the abundance of warm weather and beaches means wearing bikinis and shorts year-round, people are often embarrassed by having cellulite. truSculpt treatments temporarily reduce the amount of cellulite under your skin, giving you the confidence to wear clothing that you may not otherwise feel comfortable wearing.
What happens during the truSculpt treatment at Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center?
Dr. Rigor may recommend one to two treatments for best results. If a second treatment is necessary, it is generally scheduled two months after the first treatment. In general, the truSculpt treatment lasts about an hour. During the treatment, Dr. Rigor uses a small handheld device to deliver radio frequency energy to the treatment areas. Each pulse of energy is applied for up to four minutes. Anesthesia is not required for the truSculpt procedure, and you may experience a mild warming sensation during the procedure.
How long is the healing period after the truSculpt treatment by Dr. Rigor?
truSculpt treatments do not require you to have downtime or limit your activities.
