If there’s one great innovation in the cosmetic industry within the last few years, it’s the explosion of non-surgical body contouring devices. There are more options available than ever, which is great news if you’re looking for the best, most customizable way to achieve your body goals and feel like your most confident self. If you’ve been doing research ahead of your consultation, however, it can feel overwhelming trying to select the best option. Although Emsculpt® is one of the most popular options for non-surgical fat reduction, truSculpt iD is an effective alternative worth knowing about. Here’s what to know about their similarities and differences as you schedule your consultation with our aesthetic team.
What is truSculpt iD?
truSculpt iD is a body contouring system that uses a specialized handpiece and monopolar radiofrequency energy to heat fat cells under the skin. This therapy causes the body to gradually remove them, reducing the overall size and appearance of stubborn fat pockets. The result is more noticeable contour definition with just a few, 15-minute sessions. In fact, most patients enjoy up to 24% reduction in fat with each treatment. The best part is, there’s no incisions, downtime, or discomfort.
What is Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is a body contouring treatment that shares the same goal as truSculpt iD, but uses a different approach. Emsculpt produces involuntary electromagnetic contractions in the muscles using a specialized pad placed over the area. These contractions cause rapid muscle hypertrophy and fat reduction, resulting in more noticeable muscle definition. Most patients require a package of treatments over the course of a few weeks for best results, but there’s no incisions or downtime needed.
Is truSculpt iD Better Than Emsculpt?
truSculpt iD can be a more versatile treatment, especially if you’re looking for fat reduction in specific areas. Emsculpt is only FDA-approved for areas like the stomach and thighs, while truSculpt iD can be used to reduce fat in areas like the stomach, hips, arms, bra area, and even under the chin. Additionally, truSculpt iD can be much more accessible to patients who don’t want to sustain challenging fitness habits to maintain their Emsculpt results. Finally, truSculpt iD achieves long-term results when it comes to fat reduction since the fat cells themselves are removed from the body – rather than simply reduced in size as a result of muscle-building.
Overall, this means that truSculpt iD comes with many advantages over Emsculpt for some patients. Our expert aesthetics team can determine the right options for you during your consultation at our New York City office.
