What is TruSculpt iD?
TruSculpt iD is a non-surgical body sculpting (or body contouring) treatment that uses targeted, precise heating to destroy fat cells and reduce excess fat on the flanks. The device heats fat cells with monopolar radiofrequency energy without affecting other tissues or blood vessels. This controlled heating kills results in long-term fat reduction of up to 24% in the treatment area. The truSculpt iD technology has a dual benefit in that it promotes collagen production in the dermis, leading to skin tightening for enhanced results.
In as little as a single 15-minute treatment session, truSculpt iD can:
- Reduce stubborn, excess fat in the flanks
- Treat mild skin laxity
- Be customized for your unique concerns
After truSculpt iD destroys fat cells in the treatment area, your body gets to work removing them through the lymphatic system. This process can take multiple weeks to complete, so your results won’t be noticeable right away. Improvement generally increases slowly in the 12 weeks following treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate for TruSculpt iD?
Virtually anyone who is in good overall health and has specific issues with the appearance of their waistline and flanks is eligible for truSculpt iD treatment. It is recommended that patients be at or near their goal weight prior to this treatment, as it is not a weight loss procedure, but rather a body contouring one.
The only true way to know if you’re a good candidate for this non-invasive flank treatment is to schedule a consultation with our aesthetic treatment medical specialists at Carnegie Women’s Health.
Will I Need Multiple Treatments?
One of the advantages to truSculpt iD over other body contouring procedures (including cryolipolysis or “fat freezing” technology) is that it has many versatile applicator pads that can treat both small, precise areas as well as larger ones in a single session. This often means patients get all the treatment they need in a single treatment, although the results take up to 12 weeks to become fully apparent.
It’s possible to undergo multiple truSculpt iD treatments to obtain even further fat reduction, although for more dramatic weight loss needs, a different aesthetic procedure may be a better choice for some.
