truSculpt iD is a revolutionary, non-invasive treatment to reduce unwanted fat in targeted areas of the body. The days are over when freezing was the only way to get rid of unwanted fat, non-surgically. truSculpt employs monopolar radiofrequency to eliminate fat cells and achieve a sculpted body contour. It is a fifteen minute treatment that is more versatile than some other treatment methods.
Once the target areas have been selected and planned, a double-sided sticky pad is placed over the treatment area. The applicators are placed on the outer sticky surface and then wrapped in place to sit securely for the treatment time. Radio frequency fat removal can be employed on both large, confluent areas or multiple, smaller areas. While large areas are treated with several applicators adjacent to each other, multiple, smaller areas can be treated simultaneously. Of course, if there is only one small area, this can be treated by itself. Very small areas, such as double chins, may also be treated using a hand-held applicator.
During the fifteen minute cycle, the treatment area will become warm, as will the earthing plate. However, the temperature is monitored and controlled throughout the cycle, avoiding any discomfort. After the procedure, the area will appear flushed and will be warm for less than one hour.
On average, a 24% fat loss is experienced from the treatment area but this occurs over several months. Further treatments can increase this loss, or other areas may be treated.
The skin overlying the treatment area will also become somewhat firmer, rather than looser, as often happens with volume loss.
Because of the nature of radiofrequency, truSculpt® iD should not be used on those with implanted electrical devices, such as cardiac pacemakers.
