TruSculpt iD

Ever since the advent of non-invasive body contouring treatments, the idea of getting slim, trim, and in shape without spending countless hours in the gym has everyone wanting these treatments. What once seemed like a pipe dream is now an effective solution to get you one step closer to the figure of your dreams.

Non-surgical body sculpting treatments treat stubborn pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise.

While these fat-reducing treatments are not intended for weight loss, they do a stellar job of sculpting the body. These treatments, including TruSculpt ID, work best for contouring specific areas of the body, like the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks, for a more toned, trimmer appearance.

Unlike liposuction, which requires incisions and a recovery period, non-invasive body sculpting effectively and permanently eliminates fat without compromising the underlying tissue of the skin’s surface. So, in the end, you’ll want to flaunt your new svelte figure.

What is TruSculpt iD?

TruSculpt iD is a revolutionary, non-surgical body contouring treatment that harnesses the power of monopolar radiofrequency (RF) energy to sculpt the body. Treating fatty areas with RF creates heat deep within the fat cells to destroy them for good. RF is a popular energy modality for eliminating fat, stimulating collagen, and tightening the skin.

RF energy is a non-ablative technology, meaning it does not ablate or destroy the skin or underlying tissues. It also signifies that the treatment has no downtime after a session. The quick, 15-minute procedure can also be used on multiple body parts and types. Plus, it’s faster than other fat-blasting procedures that require freezing the fat, which can be uncomfortable or painful.

Instead, TruSculpt iD painlessly works on the subcutaneous fat layer for long-lasting fat reduction. As the RF energy makes its way to the layer where the fat cells live, it blasts them with heat energy to destroy them. Then, the fat cells are naturally eliminated by the body. TruSculpt iD also features various handpieces that allow for customized treatment and excellent versatility. On average, patients see about a 24% reduction in fat after the treatment.

How does Trusculpt iD work?

While it may sound too good to be true, TruSculpt iD works non-invasively with monopolar RF to treat unwanted fat on specific body parts.

RF penetrates deep into the fat cells and layer where fat lives to destroy it without compromising or affecting the blood vessels, nerve endings, and other tissues. However, the energy emitted is low-frequency, so while it can impact the fat cells, it doesn’t affect the skin’s surface. 

RF energy is the gold standard for tightening loose tissue, so if there are fatty areas that are also lax, the treatment can help improve the skin’s texture. That’s because as the RF energy goes down to the fat layer, it converts into heat, causing the fat cells to burst open and then expel naturally. Heat is delivered into the tissue and stimulates the natural collagen production process. 

The TruSculpt iD treatment also features a multitude of different handpieces so that your provider may treat large and smaller areas simultaneously for faster treatments and results. These special handpieces can be used anywhere on the body (the treatment is FDA-approved for contouring the flanks and abdomen) to eliminate fat pockets and bulky areas. The versatility of the handpieces also allows for a more precise treatment to better cater to your specific needs.

Another benefit of TruSculpt iD is that minimal treatment sessions are required. The abdomen and flanks can be treated with just one 15-minute session, making it a good option for those short on time or unable to tolerate longer body-sculpting treatments. 

Lastly, TruSculpt iD differs from other body-contouring treatments because it uses RF energy to kill unwanted fat, not lasers or freezing technology. So instead of just reaching the layer of fat between the skin and muscle, TruSculpt iD goes deeper to get down to the muscle (although it doesn’t tone the muscle). 

What does TruSculpt iD feel like?

TruSculpt iD feels more like a hot stone massage and is relatively comfortable. First, RF pads are placed on the treatment area and then wrapped in plastic to keep them in place. During the treatment, the skin may warm up and feel hot to the touch as the pads heat up and deliver energy, but it’s nothing uncomfortable or painful. Following the treatment, the skin may remain warm for about an hour, and there may be mild sensitivity in the treated areas when touching them. Although this is entirely normal, not every patient experiences this. While the tenderness may last a few days, you’ll still be able to resume your regular activities and even work out.

What are the benefits of TruSculpt iD?

The non-surgical body sculpting treatment works on various body types and shapes to eliminate unwanted stubborn fat pockets. While the treatment works best on the abdomen and flanks, it is equally effective on other body parts, like the upper arms and inner and outer thighs. In addition, the 15-minute treatment is quick, downtime-free, and offers permanent results. 

The non-surgical body sculpting Since TruSculpt iD utilizes RF energy, it also offers the benefit of skin tightening on the surface while eliminating unwanted fat deep below the skin. Most other fat-erasing treatments only address fat, not minimally loose skin. Overall, your new shape will make you feel good about your body and even better in your clothes.

How much does TruSculpt iD cost?

The cost of a TruSculpt iD treatment varies from person to person, depending on the number of treatments required and the treatment areas. Therefore, we recommend a consultation for a detailed estimate to determine your treatment’s cost.

Who is a good candidate for TruSculpt iD?

Anyone looking to slim down bulky areas of their body without liposuction often benefits from the treatment. No matter how hard you work out or how much you diet, some areas are resistant to weight loss and need a little help. 

In the past, non-invasive fat-reducing treatments were reserved for select body types. However, TruSculpt iD works for many body types and shapes and is even practical for people with a BMI of 30 or higher. In addition, you don’t have to be at your ideal weight. As long as you are within 20 to 30 pounds of your ideal weight and have areas where you want to define and contour, TruSculpt iD is a good option. However, it is not a weight loss procedure, so it’s essential to recognize that.

Common FAQs

Most patients can see results after just one treatment, although they can take between five and 12 weeks to surface because of the natural elimination process of the destroyed fat cells. Nevertheless, you will see the maximum results after 12 weeks. Depending on your goals, you may want to undergo additional treatments to achieve the desired results.

Everyone is different and requires a different number of treatment sessions to obtain their goals. Some patients benefit from one session, while others need upwards of three, each spaced apart. You can also choose to undergo additional treatments to get the desired results.

Drinking lots of water in the days and weeks following a TruSculpt iD treatment is essential. Hydration is critical in helping to flush out the now-destroyed fat cells. While your body will eliminate them independently, staying hydrated will help push them through the lymphatic system and out of the body a little faster.
