Introducing Cutera® - truSculpt® iD
Many of us would like to improve something about our body contours, even if we’ve done everything we can to exercise and eat a healthy diet. truSculpt iD is a non-surgical treatment designed to help you achieve your “iDeal” shape around your abdomen and flanks, whether you want to look trimmer or more sculpted or both.
truSculpt iD is safe, comfortable and highly effective for a broader range of patients than many other body contouring alternatives. The treatment produces clinically-proven results, permanently eliminating fat in the treated area (as long as you maintain a healthy weight, of course).
How Does truSculpt® iD Work?
truSculpt iD uses advanced Monopolar RF (radiofrequency) technology to selectively target fat, gently and safely heating it to destroy the cells, which are then flushed naturally from the body. A single treatment can eliminate as much as 24% of the fat in the target area. Patients often say it feels like getting a hot stone massage. In other words, your skin will feel very warm but not uncomfortably so.
The treatment is highly customizable, to achieve the results you envision even if you are not a good candidate for other treatments due to your skin type, laxity, depth of fat or location of the treatment area.
How Long Does It Take?
Treatment sessions are fast, but overall time depends on the number and size of target areas. We can treat multiple areas simultaneously. Some areas can take as little as 15 minutes, while it takes between 15-30 minutes to treat both the abdomen and flanks.
There is no downtime required following truSculpt iD treatment, so you can go right back to your daily routine, including exercising. Your skin may continue to feel warm or look a bit flushed at first, but that should disappear within the hour. In some patients, the skin may remain sensitive to touch for a few days.
Am I a Good Candidate?
truSculpt iD is suitable for most men and women, though people with a higher BMI may not see as effective results as those who only have trouble areas. Also, if you have any history of heart conditions, a pacemaker or metal implants, you will need to get clearance from your doctor before treatment.
truSculpt® iD Results
You will be able to see improvement immediately following your truSculpt flex treatment, although it can take up to 12 weeks to see final results. Depending on your ultimate body sculpting goals, Dr. Harris may suggest additional treatments, typically 4-6 sessions for optimal results. And, though the results you will see are long-lasting, lifestyle changes that lead to something like weight gain will certainly affect results. Also, as you get older (because we all do!) results may change.
Define Yourself with truSculpt® iD
Body contouring is highly personal because bodies and preferences can differ considerably. Whether you’re already in great shape or not so much, truSculpt iD may be just what you’re looking for to achieve more obvious muscle definition. You also have the option of combining your truSculpt iD treatments with truSculpt flex sessions. Our team at Image Surgical Arts is excited about this new technology, and we think you will be too. Scheduling a personal visit with Dr. Harris and his team is the best way to learn more about truSculpt iD technology and what it could do to help you acquire your personalized “iDeal” shape.
