What is truSculpt iD?
truSculpt iD is the latest version of truSculpt. 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 Sobel Skin, 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.
Would I be a good candidate for truSculpt ID?
These are amazing procedures at Sobel Skin. truSculpt ID removes up to 24 percent of the fat cells in the areas we treat, and it does so in a completely non-invasive manner. What’s not to love about that?
The reality is we all have pockets of fat that are almost impervious to targeting with changes in diet and exercise. And no matter where they are, the versatility of truSculpt ID’s different applicators/handpieces ensures we can target them. These procedures are great for anyone.
Non-Surgical Fat Reduction Treatment
truSculpt iD is a non-surgical body sculpting treatment for any shape or body type. The revolutionary truSculpt iD is clinically proven to eliminate fat in stubborn areas around your abdomen and flanks. The procedure is as little as a 15-minute hand-free treatment per area, completely personalized to your individual needs with no downtime.
How Many truSculpt Treatments are Needed?
Multiple areas can be treated in as little as one 15-minute session. Results are visible after just one treatment, with maximum results seen after 12 weeks. Additional treatments may be required to achieve the personalized results you desire.
How Does truSculpt Feel?
truSculpt procedures are typically described as feeling like a hot stone massage. During treatment, the temperature of your skin will rise but remain comfortable. It’s effective, safe and the results are even and consistent.
Is There Downtime After truSculpt Treatment?
After undergoing truSculpt in NYC, patients can expect their treatment area to be warm and flushed for less than one hour. While you may experience mild sensitivity to the touch for a few days, you’ll be able to immediately return to normal activities and exercise.
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 Sobel Skin. 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.
Treatment Areas for truSculpt
Choosing to undergo non-surgical fat reduction with truSculpt in NYC means that you will soon be able to go sleeveless or wear shorts with full confidence: targeted arm and leg treatments will improve shape, definition, and contouring. In addition to the abdomen and flanks, treatments can be done on upper arms, inner and outer thighs of all shapes and sizes even on areas with skin laxity. Feel better in your clothes, look better out of your clothes, and flaunt your youthful shape.
Can truSculpt ID be combined with other treatments?
Just about any of our wide variety of skin treatments at Sobel Skin can be combined with a truSculpt session. After all, treating a single area with truSculpt ID takes just 15 minutes or so. You could make more out of your appointment by adding in dermal filler injections for your smile lines or marionette lines or Botox for removing your crow’s feet or frown lines. You could opt for any of our laser skin rejuvenation procedures, such as Fraxel or Clear + Brilliant. Or we could even get rid of some of your pesky spider veins with sclerotherapy.
During your consultation, we can talk about combining treatments.
