How does truSculpt iD work?
truSculpt iD is a non-invasive, monopolar radiofrequency body contouring or body sculpting technology that is proven to reduce an average of 24% of fat in patients. Monopolar radiofrequency is known to destroy fat cells deep in the subcutaneous layer. There are 3 types of handpieces that give it high versatility. truSculpt iD is ideal for targeting stubborn fat even in the presence of loose skin or reduced elasticity.
What areas can truSculpt iD treat?
truSculpt iD can treat the following areas:
- Submentum (chin)
- Bra Line and back
- Armpit/Axillary fat
What are the benefits of truSculpt iD?
Some benefits of truSculpt iD include:
- Little to no downtime
- Comfortable and quick procedure
- Simultaneous skin tightening
- Average of 24% fat reduction after only one session
The truSculpt iD ticks all the boxes in terms of convenience, comfort level, flexibility, and efficacy. In comparison, other body sculpting devices either require a much longer treatment duration (e.g., CoolSculpting, Vanquish can take up to an hour), cause more discomfort and downtime (e.g., SculpSure, CoolSculpting), or are not customizable to treat multiple areas concurrently (e.g., CoolSculpting).
Its efficacy rate of 24% average fat reduction is also one of the highest among its competitors. On average, it takes about 6-12 weeks to see results.
What are the risks of truSculpt iD?
Side effects of truSculpt iD include:
- Mild swelling
- Mild tenderness
What results can I see with truSculpt iD?
truSculpt iD has been shown in studies to be effective in destroying an average of 24% of fat cells, regardless of body type. It uses non-invasive radiofrequency technology to target the areas with excess fat. The radiofrequency energy produces deep heat which causes fat cells to break down. It does not affect other body tissues.
After the treatment, the body naturally expels destroyed fat cells. The fat-loss results manifest gradually over weeks to months following the treatment. As the fat cells break down gradually, the skin has time to tighten, so you do not have to worry about loose skin after fat loss. Moreover, radiofrequency technology can also lead to skin tightening!
The fat loss in treated areas is permanent, but remaining fat cells can still expand if there is any future weight gain. The good thing is, there is overall less amount of fat cells that can expand. As with any body contouring treatment, it works best when coupled with good dietary habits and regular exercise.
truSculpt iD FAQ
truSculpt iD is a safe body contouring treatment that is FDA-approved. Even though you may experience tenderness, redness, or bruising after treatment, these will go away quickly without leaving any damage to your skin.
Most adult men and women regardless of skin type, amount of fat and location of fat would be able to undergo the procedure. However, the best candidates would be healthy, active adults with realistic expectations who are not looking to lose weight, but rather to reduce stubborn, moderate-sized pockets of fats.
The duration of the procedure will depend on the size and number of treatment areas. One truSculpt iD treatment cycle using up to 6 applicators takes about 15 minutes.
truSculpt iD treatments typically feel like a hot stone massage. During treatment, the temperature of the skin will rise but it remains comfortable.
The treatment areas may be warm and flushed for less than an hour after treatment. You may also experience mild sensitivity to touch for a few days, but you’ll be able to resume normal activities straight away.
1 to 2 sessions of truSculpt iD are usually needed to see results. However, the results do not appear immediately as it takes about 1-3 months for the destroyed fat cells to leave the body. Depending on your ideal body size and how much fat you have, you may have to return for follow-up sessions to maintain your results from truSculpt iD. Your doctor will recommend a suitable treatment plan for your needs.
