WHAT IS Nonsurgical Body Contouring?
When it comes to achieving the body of your dreams, there can be a variety of options. At Wellness Diagnostics and Medispa, we offer truSculpt® 3D, as well as TightSculpting® in order to ensure our patients receive the precise results they're looking for. A revolutionary solution to fat loss in problem areas, truSculpt 3D has redefined the way we think about body definition. It uses radiofrequency technology to apply steady, therapeutic heat at a clinically determined temperature to disrupt the fat cells just beneath your skin. This heat diminishes these cells, prompting your immune system to break them down and flush them from your body. truSculpt 3D has been shown to improve tone and definition, reduce overall body depth, and reshape your body’s dimensions in stubborn areas that do not improve with regular diet and exercise.
TightSculpting, on the other hand, is a unique dual-wavelength, noninvasive laser treatment for sculpting and skin tightening on all body areas. Its exclusive delivery modes are used in conjunction for hyperthermic adipocyte destruction and collagen remodeling with exceptional results. The procedure is a fast, safe, and effective alternative to laser lipolysis with no consumables or downtime required for the patient. Schedule a consultation for either of these groundbreaking treatments with Dr. Gloria Tumbaga at our office in Temecula, CA.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Nonsurgical Body Contouring?
Safe for all skin and body types, nonsurgical body contouring works for any man or woman who feels like they haven’t achieved the body they want with only diet and exercise. However, Dr. Tumbaga doesn’t recommend truSculpt 3D or TightSculpting for patients who are pregnant or have certain medical implants. If you want to perfect those troublesome places without undergoing a more invasive procedure, one of our treatment options might be right for you.
How Is Nonsurgical Body Contouring Performed?
In terms of truSculpt 3D, a handpiece delivers predetermined heat pulses to specific target areas on your body. Although session lengths depend on the size and number of treatment areas, Dr. Tumbaga can typically treat up to four targeted areas during an hour-long appointment. During your procedure, you’ll feel heat on your skin. Many have compared the sensation to that of a hot stone massage. truSculpt 3D treatments induce minimal, if any, side effects. After your appointment, you might experience some local redness or tenderness, but you will be able to return to your normal activities with no downtime.
TightSculpting is performed in two distinct steps:
1st step: During this phase, we focus on deep skin tightening and fat reduction with PIANO® pulse. The unique, super long Nd:YAG pulse mode is designed for homogenous tissue heating in a comfortable, safe, and rapid manner. This works by concentrating energy delivery to subcutaneously stimulate the metabolism of fat cells, leaving the epidermis intact. PIANO mode extends the pulse durations to the seconds regime, resulting in full-thickness bulk heating with an overall synergistic tightening effect.
2nd step: Secondly, we work on the improvement of skin surface laxity using SMOOTH® pulse. This involves the use of a revolutionary, non-ablative Er:YAG SMOOTH mode, ideal for skin tightening. The intense, controlled surface tissue heating stimulates collagen remodeling and initiates neo-collagenases. The effects result in an overall improvement of laxity and elasticity in the treatment areas.
The TightSculpting procedure allows for simultaneous large body area treatments using adjustable scanner area shapes and sizes. Moreover, Fotona’s innovative MatrixView™ temperature monitor ensures effective and controlled treatments with ultimate patient comfort and safety. Fotona’s high-performance L-Runner scanner for body sculpting and for skin tightening, used together with the SP Dynamis Pro laser system, is a winning combination, enabling maximum comfort and efficiency with each procedure.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM Nonsurgical Body Contouring?
Circumference reduction following your treatment occurs as the body gradually flushes the targeted fat cells. Most men and women begin to see noticeable results anywhere from 6 – 8 weeks after their initial treatment, and their appearance usually continues to improve for up to three months. It should be noted that results and the amount of time until results are visible will fluctuate from patient to patient.
Nonsurgical Body Contouring FAQ
How much does nonsurgical body contouring cost?
The cost for nonsurgical body contouring will depend on what's included in your treatment plan. In your consultation, Dr. Tumbaga will understand your goals before performing an assessment. She will then be able to give you recommendations and develop your custom plan. Once it is made, Dr. Tumbaga will be better able to estimate your costs and review your options for payment. Wellness Diagnostics and Medispa takes several methods, including low-interest financing.
Will insurance pay for my nonsurgical body contouring?
While most elective procedures aren't usually covered by health insurance, it is possible that body contouring could be eligible for insurance coverage. If loose skin is causing medical conditions, like reoccurring infections, you may be able to get reimbursement from your health insurance. Coverage varies based on your insurance carrier and policy, but if you want to use your insurance, please let Dr. Tumbaga know in your consultation. A team member at Wellness Diagnostics and Medispa will help you work with your insurance for maximum coverage.
How long will my nonsurgical body contouring results last?
If you take good care of yourself, the surgical results of body contouring can last a long time. To help maintain your results, you should maintain a healthy weight. Dramatic changes in your weight or pregnancy after your body contouring surgery can impact your results. Your body will continue to age naturally, so you will eventually develop loose skin again as you get older. Ask Dr. Tumbaga about suggestions that may help you sustain your results.
