Are you struggling to lose those last ten pounds? Do you hate the idea of surgical procedures?
Thankfully, it’s 2020 and we’ve got alternatives to crash diets and invasive weight-loss procedures. If you’ve never heard of body sculpting, now is the time to check out truSculpt iD.

What is truSculpt iD and what can I expect?

truSculpt iD is a non-invasive fat reduction process that uses radiofrequency to – you guessed it – reduce the fat on your body. It’s great if you’re looking to target problem areas (think arms, belly, under the neck, bra rolls, or above the knee) and is an incredible option if the pain and expense of surgery sounds terrifying.

While this procedure does not involve any cuts or incisions, you may have questions about the details. That’s why we’re breaking down exactly what to expect! Don’t let the fear of uncertainty stop you from pursuing easy solutions to your problem areas.

What exactly is truSculpt iD?

truSculpt iD uses proprietary radiofrequency technology to reduce body fat in targeted areas. The treatment penetrates from just below the surface of your skin to your muscle layer, using heat to kill fat cells throughout the entire layer of fat. The procedure is not a weight-loss procedure, but a way to reduce fat and tighten skin.

What can I expect?

Let’s break down the entire process so it’s mystery-free.

The administrator will begin by applying several sticky pads to your target area. These stickies look like pads of clear double-stick tape. They are applied to protect your skin and ensure that the truSculpt iD applicators adhere well.

Next up – the applicators. Several fist-sized square applicators are applied to the clear sticky pads on your body. These applicators are the machines that transfer the heat to your skin. A binder is applied to keep the applicators in place and the heat concentrated.

Finally, patient data is inputted into the device and the applicators begin activating. The applicators will activate two-at-a-time, heating and cooling in rotation.

How can truSculpt iD target problem areas?

Remember the stickies we mentioned earlier? These stickies can be “puzzle-pieced” to create your desired shape. For instance, if you’re looking to tighten your belly area and accentuate your v-line, you can stack the stickies in a downward v-shape so only the desired areas are treated.

Grounding pads are used to capture excess energy. This ensures that the radiofrequency is targeted to specific areas and doesn’t flow freely throughout the body.

How long does the procedure take?

TruSculpt iD is a short, 15-minute procedure. It’s non-invasive and involves minimal to no downtime. And once you’re done, you’re free to resume normal activities! There’s no recovery process and no long hours at the doctor’s office.

Will it hurt?

No! truSculpt iD is designed for patient comfort. As long as you’re tolerant of heat, the procedure actually feels quite soothing. Some have compared truSculpt iD to the feeling of stepping into a jacuzzi or hot shower. If you are sensitive to heat, the administrator will ease you into the hot temperature gradually.

How is truSculpt iD different from other treatments on the market?

Other treatments can take hours and involve lengthy setups and uncomfortable applicators. truSculpt iD also works to not only reduce fat but tighten the skin, something most other fat-reducing treatments don’t address.

Does it really work?

Yes! Unlike other treatments, truSculpt iD treats the entire layer of fat in a given area. This typically results in a 24% fat reduction.
