truSculpt iD

What is truSculpt id??

truSculpt iD is a state-of-the-art, FDA-cleared system that permanently reduces fat. At The Artisan Center, we are proud to offer a transformative system by Cutera, an industry leader in aesthetic lasers and energy-based devices for the face and body. Unlike other technologies designed to reduce fat, truSculpt iD provides a non-invasive, comfortable treatment that is uniquely customizable and highly effective and efficient in permanently removing fat. A welcome benefit is that it also has the potential to induce skin tightening simultaneously. The truSculpt iD system is a great option for both men and women of any shape or body size. The revolutionary technology and thoughtful design allow efficient reduction of surface fat in targeted areas, such as the upper arms, back, flank, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, calves, as well as under the chin (submentum).

How Does it Work?

The truSculpt iD system delivers monopolar radiofrequency energy non-invasively to specific areas, removing unwanted surface fat (located above the muscle). There is no anesthesia needed and little to no “downtime.” The precise temperature delivery and monitoring allow it to target fat cells optimally while maintaining a cooler skin temperature. As a result, treatments are both more comfortable and effective than other devices that use heat energy. In clinical studies, patients showed an average of 24% fat reduction after a single truSculpt iD session (in contrast to most other systems, which involve a series of treatments to achieve up to the same level of fat reduction). The fat cells removed by truSculpt iD are gone permanently (in a process called lipolysis).

How is truSculpt iD Treatment Performed?

Depending on the location and amount of unwanted fat, your technician can choose from three different treatment approaches or can combine these in sequence at your appointment. The unique truSculpt iD system can treat up to six 40-cm2 areas in a single 15-minute session. In addition, the smaller focused hand piece can treat under the chin and other smaller pockets of unwanted fat.

Multiple areas can be treated simultaneously, pads that warm the body are applied to the skin surface and wrapped to keep them in place during treatment. Regardless of the applicator, the temperature can be adjusted to your comfort level. Most people liken it to a hot stone massage. The goal is to achieve targeted heating to reduce fat and potentially tighten the skin without pain.

How Soon Will I See Results?

You may start to see results as soon as one to two weeks after treatment, but maximum results are visible after 8 to 12 weeks due to permanent removal of fat. Most patients achieve about 24% fat reduction within three months of their first session. After treatment, the body naturally processes the fat cells away over the course of 12 weeks, continuously and gradually improving the patient’s appearance. Treatments with the smaller hand piece (e.g. under the chin) typically need two to three sessions (rarely more, depending on patient goals).

How Long Will Results Last?

The fat cells removed by truSculpt iD treatment are eliminated permanently. As long as you avoid weight gain as fat, you should enjoy long-term benefits of the treatment.

What is Recovery Like After truSculpt® iD?

There is no downtime after the procedure, and normal activity can be resumed immediately. Patients may experience mild redness.
