At AesthetiSpa, we offer a great option for body contouring from Cutera, truSculpt iD. This non-invasive body-contouring procedure eliminates up to 24 percent of the fat in the treatment areas, using safe, comfortable radiofrequency energy. About that RF energy… It also adds a secondary benefit to truSculpt treatments. It tightens the skin across the treatment areas!
Our patients from across Coastal Carolina love truSculpt iD.
What is truSculpt iD?
truSculpt iD is the latest version of truSculpt. As with truSculpt 3D, it provides an alternative to invasive liposuction surgery. The mechanism used by truSculpt iD is radiofrequency energy, which is delivered painlessly down through the epidermis into the dermis and fat layers of the skin through a variety of different handpieces. This RF energy converts to heat and destroys fat cells, which are then removed by the body’s lymphatic system. In addition to reducing about 24 percent of the fat in the treatment areas, truSculpt iD’s RF energy also provides a secondary benefit of initiating new collagen production, which tightens the skin across the treatment areas.
The key to truSculpt iD is its comprehensive handpiece options. This system offers six hands-free handpieces, one hand-held handpiece, and one handpiece designed specifically for smaller areas. This provides great versatility.
How does truSculpt ID work?
At AesthetiSpa, we can activate multiple truSculpt iD handpieces to treat larger areas simultaneously. Plus, we can place the handpieces where they are needed the most, diminishing fat pockets in the bulky areas. The varied handpieces really give us more flexibility with truSculpt iD. We can customize each treatment to the individual patient’s needs, applying larger and smaller handpieces as needed to target precise areas.
The truSculpt iD handpieces deliver low-frequency, high-conductivity RF energy deep into the skin. This energy can impact the entire fat layer down to muscle, while keeping the skin surface temperature comfortable. The RF energy converts to heat when it enters the dermis and fat layers of the skin, and this heat makes the fat cell walls burst. Over the next few weeks, the body flushes these dead cells from the body as it does with any waste products. truSculpt iD destroys up to 24 percent of the fat cells in the treatment area.
The FDA has approved truSculpt iD for body contouring on the abdomen and the flanks. We assume additional areas will continually be added.
When will I see my results from truSculpt ID?
As you would expect, you don’t have immediate results following your truSculpt ID session at AesthetiSpa. truSculpt iD’s RF energy destroys the fat cells across the treatment areas, but it takes some time for the body to remove the cells. The RF energy creates some initial skin tightening, due to immediate collagen remodeling. But your real results will begin to show themselves in about six weeks, as fat cells are removed. Plus, the body will be building new collagen for the area. Your overall results will continue to improve for four months.
