Summers in Charleston and Mt. Pleasant aren’t complete without driving along the shore with some beach tunes blaring. But at AesthetiSpa, we’re more interested in other radiofrequency energy, namely the sort that can put the whammy on fat cells. It’s called truSculpt iD, a non-invasive body contouring treatment that our patients love.
What is truSculpt iD?
truSculpt iD is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses monopolar radiofrequency energy to reduce fat. truSculpt iD uses versatile handpiece options that are placed across the treatment areas. These eliminate fat in as little as a single 15-minute treatment. You can opt to have six hands-free handpieces, one hand-held handpiece, and one handpiece designed specifically for smaller areas. This provides great versatility for the areas being targeted.
How does truSculpt iD work?
The goal of truSculpt iD is to reduce areas of stubborn fat that don’t respond to dietary changes and exercise. Unlike CoolSculpting, which uses cold to freeze fat cells, truSculpt iD uses monopolar radiofrequency energy to target fat cells in the treatment areas. Patients achieve an average of 24 percent fat reduction in as little as a single treatment.
The various handpieces with truSculpt iD deliver proprietary, low frequency radio waves down into the treatment area. The radiofrequency energy penetrates the epidermis and the dermis and enters the fat layer. There the energy converts to heat and damages fat cells, roughly one quarter of the cells in the area. The fat cell walls are damaged, and the cells cannot recover. Over the next 12 weeks, the body removes these dead fat cells through the natural process of eliminating waste products.
The result is a slimmer contour in the treatment area thanks to 24 percent fat reduction.
