Nonsurgical fat reduction treatments are on a steady incline when it comes to popular body contouring procedures, and with this increase in popularity, comes an increase in the types of treatments offered. As great as having multiple options can be, the numerous different treatments available can make it difficult and overwhelming to decide, or even know, which technology is best for you and your specific goals. At Carnegie Women’s Health, we want your body contouring experience to be as stress-free and pleasant as possible, which is why we offer the best and most advanced treatments available. With treatments using TruSculpt ID, we take the guesswork out of finding an effective way to treat stubborn fat. Still not sure if TruSculpt ID is right for you, here’s how the treatment compares to other fat reduction options.
What is TruSculpt ID?
TruSculpt ID is a non-invasive body counting treatment that utilizes a specialized radiofrequency (RF) fat reduction technology. This radiofrequency safely heats the layer of excess or stubborn fat without causing damage to the surrounding tissue or any discomfort to the skin. By applying heat to the fat layer, TruSculpt ID effectively melts fat cells, damaging them to the point that the body identifies them as waste and flushes them away. Treatments using TruSculpt ID are effective from the very beginning. After a single treatment session, which can be completed in as little as 15 minutes, results can be seen in about 12 weeks after the procedure. Most patients see an average of 25% fat reduction.
One of the main benefits of TruSculpt ID is that it is available to a wider population of patients seeking fat reduction procedures. Traditionally, body contouring procedures were only available to those who were at or close to their ideal weight, but with TruSculpt ID those with higher BMIs and more fat to reduce are eligible for treatment. TruSculpt is a non-surgical procedure with no anesthesia and no downtime, making it a great option for on-the-go patients with busy lifestyles or those who do not want to take too much time off work. In addition to being a quick procedure and recovery, TruSculpt ID treatments are very comfortable too. Most patients describe the TruSculpt experience as being similar to a 15-minute hot stone massage. After the procedure, you may experience some sensitivity and redness at the treatment site, but these sensations should not stop you from being free to return to your routine as usual.
Comparing TruSculpt ID with CoolSculpting, Emsculpt, and Sculpsure
The primary benefit of TruSculpt ID compared to other noninvasive or minimally invasive fat reduction treatments is that it is available to a wider variety of patients. At Carnegie Women’s Health, we prioritize inclusivity among our treatments and procedures. Patients with higher BMIs and our more mature patients with less skin elasticity are better suited to TruSculpt ID and can expect to experience better results than if treated with other fat-reducing procedures available on the market.
TruSculpt ID Compared to Sculpsure
The radiofrequency heat technology of TruSculpt ID is similar to that of Sculpsure, however, TruSculpt is able to reach a deeper layer of fatty tissue in less amount of time than with Sculpsure treatments. Additionally, TruSculpt ID treatments are more effective, with clinical trials suggesting that TruSculpt ID treatments are more effective overall than Sculpsure treatments.
TruSculpt ID Compared to CoolSculpting
Most patients who are candidates for TruSculpt ID are also candidates for CoolSculpting, which works by harnessing the powers of the opposite technology, to freeze rather than heat fat cells in order to damage them. Both TruSculpt ID and Coolsculpting treatments are also comparable in the amount of fat and fat cells that are damaged and carried away by the body, thus reducing fat altogether. However, in comparison to CoolSculpting, TruSculpt ID can be used to treat a wider range of areas on the body including those that aren’t considered “pinchable” fat. TruSculpt ID’s unique heat technology is strong enough to reach the fat layer adjacent to the TruSculpt pad. By targeting areas of fat surrounding those directly under the treatment pad, TruSculpt ID allows for an evenly tight and smooth appearance to the treatment area. Coolsculpting’s less comprehensive approach to fat reduction can result in a dimpled appearance to the skin.
TruSculpt ID Compared to Emsculpt
Finally, fat reduction with the use of TruSculpt ID differs from Emsculpt because, while TruSculpt ID treatments have the ability to reach the muscle layer, they are not designed to tone the muscles. Because Emsculpt treatments are not specifically designed to reduce fat, they are better suited for those seeking body contouring procedures with the desire to increase muscle mass and tone. If you are seeking to experience fat reduction primarily, rather than an increase in muscle mass and tone, TruSculpt ID treatments are the better option for you.
