There are several non surgical fat reduction devices on the market. Generally they can be categorized into devices that use cryolipolysis (like Coolsculpting) and laser lipolysis (like Sculpsure). Currently there’s a novel device on the market called truSculpt iD
Trusculpt ID is a revolutionary new way to trim body fat. It is not a laser, nor does it use cold to kill fat cells. Instead it is a monopolar Radiofrequency device that is able to generate electric current which in turn is directed to fat tissue for destruction. This current is able to heat fat tissue beneath the skin at a high enough temperature to enable fat break down and yet keep the skin surface cool enough to prevent damage or burn. This novel technology has proven efficacy in maintaining steady temperatures of >45 deg within the fat layer , which is necessary for fat destruction while preserving the epidermis at a comfortable temperature of 43 degrees.
How then does this novel truSculpt technology compare to its predecessors that utilizes cold or laser energy to eliminate fat? What makes it a class on its own is the fact that it is virtually painless to do compared to the other methods. Results tend to be more smooth and consistent than some of the cryolipolysis methods available; without the risk of paradoxical fat hypertrophy. It is also FDA approved to be used in individuals with >30% BMI. Due to its multiple palm sized applicators (total of 6), it is a lot easier to customize and fit areas of treatment in different body shapes and sizes. truSculpt iD also has the shortest effective treatment time of merely 15 minutes, whereas the other devices can take 30-60 minutes to do.
It is a non surgical procedure that only takes 15minutes. Therefore there are no unwanted surgical risks like prolonged downtime, anesthesia related complications, pain and scarring. Fat cells in stubborn areas like your flanks and abdomen are ideal for such treatments. An average of 24% fat reduction is achieved in just 1 truSculpt iD treatment.
Due to its multiple palm sized hand pieces, it is easy to customize and target different areas for the desired outcome. Therefore most adult men or women are suitable candidates for this treatment.
It can be used on all skin types and over tattoos. Procedure time depends on the size and number of treatment areas. It typically takes 15-30 minutes to treat the abdomen and flanks. Multiple areas can be treated in as little as one 15-minute session. Additional treatments may be required to achieve the personalized results you desire.
truSculpt iD procedures are typically described as feeling like a hot stone massage. During treatment, the temperature of your skin will rise but remain comfortable. It is effective, safe and the results are even and consistent.
Post-procedure the treatment area will be warm and flushed for less than an 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.
Results are visible after just 1 treatment, with maximum results seen after 12 weeks. Additional treatment may be required to achieve the personalized results you desire.
It is important to remember that this is not meant as a weight loss device. Optimal diet and exercise remains the essential regiment of any successful weight loss program.
