Hi everyone! Sitting here on my couch eating some cheerios and have been looking forward to sitting down and writing about my TruSculpt ID experience two days ago at Revive Medical Spa in San Luis Obispo, California.
Backstory/ Full Disclosure: Shea, from Cutera who makes the TruSculpt ID reached out to me to see if I would try this fat burning treatment and after some apprehension over the vulnerability it would take since they would “Go Live” and film the entire treatment, I decided to go for it. The Reason? Something had potential to solve a real issue I have of stubborn mom gut, and I believe in trying things to make myself a better version of me! I am NOT being paid to write this, I was given the treatment for free in exchange for my honest review. If I’ve said it once i’ll say it a million times, being honest and real is far more important than convincing you a product is good because i’m being paid to do so. Back to my story
Revive Medical hosted me for this and the place was awesome, from the moment I walked into the door the ladies were sincere, warm and kind. The decor was clean and white which I loved, and you could tell that the people there loved their job. That, to me, is important because I value good people and good customer service. Anyways, they ushered me back into a perfectly lit room and showed me the machine, which to be honest looked a lot like the ultrasound machines at the doctors office. It looked simple and far from intimidating, and after the nurse explained a little about the machine I changed into my bathing suit and we got started with some before photos.
Since they were doing it live on Instagram, I brought some leggings because I didn’t want my entire body filmed while laying on a table, but it really doesn’t matter what you wear as long as the area you are treating is free of clothing. It depends on where the areas are where you want to treat but I chose the mom gut, aka the stretch of skin and fat below your belly button. I swear no matter what I do those fat cells are on a permanent vacation, its so frustrating.
The nurse placed the devices in an imaginary six pack form on my belly and then two on the love handle areas I wanted to treat. After, she wrapped me up in a human- like saran wrap and she started the machine. The little nodules got warmer as time went on, and the first five minutes were an increase of temperature in different areas until my entire stomach reached the fat burning temperature, where I sit at for 10 minutes. It felt like I was wearing a weighted, heated army jacket/tube shirt. Personally, I like my showers really hot like almost burn you hot so this heat was nothing to me but I would definitely consider it very warm/hot. Personally I found it soothing, it felt like a sauna for my belly.
After the ten minutes were up she unwrapped then took off the devices one by one. Nothing hurt about this process it was super simple, no mess just a tiny bit of sweat she rubbed off. My abs were red in the areas of the nodules but nothing else and I literally took some photos then put my clothes back on and went and got my kids from my moms house.
I wondered how it worked? It seemed so simple. I could use all the fancy words to describe it but i’m not going to, TruSculpt uses heat to kill your fat cells. Once they are dead, your body will naturally rid of them, and results are complete by the 12th week mark. The reason that this isn’t an immediate fix is because they burn the fat cells, up to 24%, and then your body naturally disposes of them. This can be used by anyone, any reasonable age aka not too young. It can also be used in any place on your body, and it helps reduce cellulite! Woohoo!
Did I notice an immediate change? Not so much, nothing like whoa that’s crazy im skinny now, more like a tightening from the heat and the restriction. Am I looking forward to seeing a change? Absolutely, I will be going back around 12 weeks to measure and see, and I will update you guys along the way.
Do I recommend this product at this moment, I don’t have an answer for that. In fact, if I did sit here and tell you it works I would be dishonest because my results are clinically not supposed to show up for a week or two and possibly up to 12! Trust me, seems like a long time to but no time will be too long if this dang belly fat goes away! What I do recommend is if this is something you’re interested in, like I was, contact the office at Revive Medical Spa. What they will do is set you up with a consultation (which is free) to talk about your options, its difficult to give prices as well because it all depends on the areas you are treating! I hope this gives you a good insight into my initial experience, its as honest as I can be, which is what you deserve!
I believe in taking care of myself, being reasonable, and putting in effort. I’ve found that when im taking care of myself im also better at taking care of those around me I love most like Gavin and my kids. If this works, you can BET ill be singing and dancing it’s praises. I value honesty and transparency and I hope you can see that here tonight in this post!
Happy Late Wednesday Night Friends!
