TruSculpt iD: A Comprehensive Guide to Non-Invasive Body Contouring

Body contouring is a highly sought-after treatment by those who want or need a little help losing fat, shaping their body, and tightening the skin. There are many body-contouring methods out there, though, and it can be hard to know what’s best, safest, and most effective.

The truSculpt iD is a non-invasive body contouring treatment with many uses and benefits. Many people see fantastic results with this versatile device, and it comes with far fewer risks than more invasive, surgical methods. Read on to learn more about the TruSculpt iD and discover if it’s right for you.

How TruSculpt iD Works

The TruSculpt iD by Cutera uses radiofrequency technology to do its job. This means it uses heat to target the subcutaneous layer of fat without breaking the skin.

The device also features real-time temperature control. The device monitors your skin temperature continuously and makes necessary adjustments. This means your skin stays at around 43-45 degrees celsius – a comfortable temperature for most.

While your skin stays warm and comfortable, the more resilient layers of fat beneath the skin continue heating, reaching up to 48 degrees Celsius. The heat is delivered directly to the unwanted fat cells, which start to break down and are eventually eliminated. On average, the device offers a fat reduction of about 24 percent.

Who is it for?

Because the TruSculpt iD uses such safe and gentle methods of body contouring, the procedure is safe for most people. It’s been approved by both the FDA and Health Canada for your peace of mind.

In terms of efficacy, the device is best suited to those who are at, or close to, their ideal body weight – but need some help with a few specific areas of stubborn fat. This radiofrequency technology works best when combined with a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet.

TruSculpt iD Treatment Process

One of the best things about the TruSculpt iD is how simple and easy the whole thing is! Sessions can last anywhere from 15-45 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area(s). Even if your session is a little longer, you’ll still be able to return to work, school, or any other activity you had planned for the day.

You can expect the following treatment process from each session:

  • Stationary handpieces will be placed over the desired treatment areas. If there are areas smaller than the stationary handpieces, a smaller handheld piece will be used instead.
  • Once treatment begins, you’ll start feeling the heat. It may feel like an intense rush, but it won’t be painful. Some people report sweating a little during treatment, but the heat will never reach unbearable levels.
  • Once done, your skin may remain red, flushed, and warm for a short time.
  • You can leave the clinic right away and return to your normal daily routine.

Some people notice minimal results right away, but the fat cells continue breaking down for about 12 weeks. It’s at the end of these 12 weeks that you’ll see the full scope of your results! Results vary from person to person, but you can expect tighter, more toned skin, better muscle definition, and a smaller waist circumference if treating the abdominal area.

Once you’re done with treatment, your results are permanent – assuming you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle with adequate nutrition. By neglecting these things and introducing unhealthy habits, the fat cells will likely return.

Depending on your goals and the severity of your concerns, it can take up to a few sessions to see optimal results. This will be discussed with our experts before any treatment starts, so you go into the whole process knowing what to expect.

How to Prepare

Although the process is simple and non-invasive, you should still make sure you’re well prepared:

  • Don’t wear any makeup or topical products to your appointment.
  • Stay hydrated before and after the procedure.

TruSculpt iD Benefits

From liposuction to fat freezing, there are several ways to eliminate stubborn fat and contour your body. But – the radiofrequency technology in the TruSculpt iD device is among the most popular for a reason. By choosing this method of body sculpting, you’ll enjoy many benefits:

  • Sessions are short – you can be in and out on your lunch break, whereas fat freezing can take up to an hour or more.
  • The procedure is comfortable and painless.
  • Results can be seen immediately.
  • Non-invasive body contouring is far safer than a surgical procedure like liposuction which comes with risks of infection, scarring, and more.
  • There is also little to no downtime, versus the week or more of recovery you’ll need from surgery.
  • Radiofrequency technology can target multiple areas in one treatment, whereas coolsculpting can only do one at a time.
  • The TruSculpt iD can treat even small, hard-to-reach areas.

Recovery and Aftercare

Unlike a surgical procedure, there is virtually no recovery or downtime needed with TruSculpt iD body contouring.  If anything, the treatment area may feel warm and look red for up to an hour after treatment, but this shouldn’t impede you in any way.

To ensure your skin stays healthy and you see the best results possible, you must follow a few aftercare instructions:

  • Avoid alcohol consumption for about 72 hours post-treatment.
  • Drink lots of water and ensure you stay hydrated before and after your appointment.
  • Avoid extreme exercise, spas, and saunas for about 72 hours after treatment. Your liver needs time to remove toxins and fatty acids from your body, and these things may interfere.
