truSculpt iD is a nonsurgical body contouring procedure that uses monopolar radiofrequency energy to destroy fat cells throughout the entire fat layer, from just below the skin down to the muscle. It’s commonly used to sculpt the abdomen, love handles, thighs, under the chin, and the upper arms.
The radiofrequency energy heats pockets of excess fat cells until they’re too damaged to survive, and the body flushes them out over the next 12 weeks. The heat also provides some mild skin-tightening benefits, as well as a temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
truSculpt iD has six panels, so it can treat multiple areas at one time.
One advantage of truSculpt iD over other body sculpting procedures is that it’s FDA-cleared to treat patients with a body mass index (BMI) over 30, but it’s not a weight-loss treatment. The best candidates are relatively fit and active, with areas of stubborn fat.
