Even with healthy eating and working out, many of our patients, struggle to get rid of those stubborn “problem areas,” and this time of year can mean a lot of time feeling self-conscious about your body. That is certainly no fun.
Unfortunately, there are some areas of the body that no amount of healthy eating and exercise can improve. Liposuction has long been the traditional treatment for these stubborn subcutaneous fat deposits. Though the results are almost immediate, the treatment itself leaves scars and requires a certain amount of recovery time.
Thankfully, several non-invasive treatments have become available, providing new options to address these troublesome areas. One of these treatments is truSculpt® iD from Cutera.
truSculpt® iD is a safe and effective technology that is clinically proven to permanently eliminate fat cells in stubborn areas around your abdomen and flanks. With truSculpt® iD, you can get the body definition you want, even in areas that have been resistant to diet and exercise.
What is truSculpt® iD?
truSculpt® iD allows you to personalize your ideal body with a revolutionary non-surgical, body-sculpting treatment. Its comfortable, safe, and effective technology is clinically proven to permanently eliminate fat cells in stubborn areas around your abdomen and flanks.
How is the procedure performed?
truSculpt® iD uses innovative Monopolar RF technology to selectively target fat and therapeutically heat it – until fat cells are eliminated by passing through the body naturally. Clinical studies resulted in an average of 24% fat reduction.
How long does the procedure take?
Procedure time depends on the size and number of treatment areas. It typically takes 15 to 30 minutes to treat the abdomen and flanks.
What does the procedure feel like…Does it hurt?
truSculpt® iD procedures are typically described as feeling like a hot stone massage. During treatment, the temperature of your skin will rise but remain comfortable. It’s effective, safe, and the results are even and consistent. It does not hurt!
How many treatments will be needed?
Multiple areas can be treated in as little as one 15-minute session. Additional treatments may be required to achieve the personalized results you desire.
Is truSculpt® iD right for me?
To be clear, truSculpt® iD is not a weight loss solution for people who are very overweight or obese.
However, if you have stubborn areas of fat that traditional diet and exercise are not improving, truSculpt® iD may be right for you. We assess the appropriateness of truSculpt® iD as a treatment for these areas during the initial consultation with each individual client.
Because truSculpt® iD is a customized and tailored treatment to meet individual needs, most adult men and women are a candidate.
Can truSculpt® iD be used on all skin types?
Yes, this treatment can be done on all skin types and over tattoos.
Can I return to normal activities after my treatment…Is there really no downtime?
Post-procedure, the treatment area will be warm and flushed for less than one hour. While you may experience mild sensitivity to the touch for a few days, you’ll be able to immediately return to normal activities and exercise.
When can I start seeing results?
Results are visible after just one treatment, with maximum results seen after 12 weeks. Additional treatments may be required to achieve the personalized results you desire.
