How Does truSculpt Work?
TruSculpt works by using innovative monopolar radiofrequency technology for targeting specific fat tissue, and then heating it. It does this with 2 MHz monopolar RF, a low-frequency of energy that is delivered in a uniform fashion to deeply penetrate the skin, to affect the fat the lies beneath. Monopolar radiofrequency is an intense form of energy that selectively targets tissue as we direct it. The fat cells that are targeted absorb therapeutic heat in a controlled manner. We heat the cells just enough to damage them. Through the process of heating, the fat is then removed and eliminated through the bodies own natural processes.
It is clinically proven to reduce the number of fat cells in your body after completing treatments. This can all be completed during a short treatment session. For people who feel uneasy when thinking about surgery, the idea of naturally removing fat from your body is far less intimidating and easier to recover from.
Who Is A Good Candidate For trusculpt?
Any one who is wanting to feel more confident about their body is a potential candidate for the truSculpt treatment. Men and women can have low self-esteem relating to the way they look. Age and poor eating habits does take a toll on our bodies, which causes unwanted fat in the thighs, buttocks and abdomen areas. Despite the gift of having children, going through pregnancy can change the way a woman’s body looks. Some women may want to restore the appearance of their stomach or thighs from before baby.
Similar to all treatments designed for fat reduction, truSculpt is intended for body-contouring through the destruction of excess fatty tissue. It is not a weight loss method and cannot remove the same amount of fat as surgical fat-reduction with liposuction. However, as truSculpt iD has been specifically developed for deep tissue penetration, Cutera states that this device is appropriate for individuals with a BMI over 30, a capability we have not seen in non-surgical devices until now. Non-surgical body-contouring treatments achieve the best results on patients who are within about 30 pounds of the ideal weight for their body frame.
The energetic nature of truSculpt treatment makes this procedure low risk for most adults. Patients who are generally healthy but not good candidates for surgery may be able to reach their cosmetic goals with Dr. Khalil Khatri through truSculpt. Treatment has not been approved for pregnant women or nursing mothers and may not be appropriate for individuals with existing health conditions such as cancer or severe autoimmune disease.
“My experience at Skin & Laser Surgery Center has been excellent starting with very professional, friendly and caring staff followed by a thorough consultation and well explained treatment by Dr. Khatri. I would love to recommend skin related treatments at this center.” -M.H.
What Are The Benefits of truSculpt?
Heat-based body-contouring procedures are not new. However, truSculpt iD stands out because it has been specifically developed to target fatty tissue all the way down to the muscle layer of the abdominal wall. The degree of heating that is required is intense, but Cutera has perfected the delivery of radiofrequency so the treatment time is shortened by nearly half of the fastest heat-based treatment currently available. TruSculpt is primarily intended for fat reduction. However, because radiofrequency energy gently heats superficial tissue, this treatment may be suitable for individuals who have slightly loose skin that would otherwise obscure the results of fat-reduction.
The treatment time is what really makes it really stand out. With treatments that can be completed in only 15 minutes, other procedures that take 60 to 90 minutes cannot compete. This is body contouring redefined and at the next level. According to clinical studies performed by Cutera, truSculpt radiofrequency body contouring can reduce fatty tissue by up to 25% in just one session. This is a great option for a busy man or woman wanting quicker results with less recovery time.
Unlike other body sculpting treatments that only feature one hands-free applicator or multiple sized hands-on applicators, truSculpt has a comprehensive set of options which address all different body shapes and sizes. TruSculpt allows you to target specific highly contoured or small body areas and switch modes for the treatment of large body areas. This dual treatment approach is faster and more efficient for the treatment of fat reduction and cellulite removal.

The truSculpt Procedure
The initial truSculpt procedure may take about an hour from start to finish. We may take pictures before your session so you can observe the differences throughout the process. Six individual heating panels are applied across the treatment area. The placement is determined based on your stated concerns and desired outcome. The truSculpt device is then activated to heat the panels to the appropriate temperature (approximately 114 degrees Fahrenheit.
What does it feel like?
Heat increases gradually over the short treatment period. Patients generally describe the sensation as a heating pad placed on their skin or a hot stone massage. Skin temperature remains comfortable throughout treatment, and most patients say that they are completely comfortable until the last few seconds of treatment when deep tissues absorb the maximum amount of heat. Even at this point, treatment is tolerable.
How long does a treatment take?
One of the best things about truSculpt iD treatment is that maximum tissue targeting can be achieved in a 15-minute session. This is almost half as much time as other popular heat-based treatments for fat reduction. A very suitable fat reduction procedure for men and women who are always on the go.
How many treatments will be needed?
Some people choose to undergo multiple treatments to achieve more dramatic contouring. However, truSculpt iD has been designed to reduce a noticeable amount of fat in just one session.
When will I start seeing visible results?
Results may begin to develop right away after a truSculpt session. The intent of non-surgical fat reducing treatment is to work with the body’s natural elimination processes. The full extent of fat reduction is typically not seen for 12 weeks. After this time, it is possible to discern whether you would like to enhance your results with further treatment.
Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
Yes. Radiofrequency fat-reduction treatments are made for the busy person who doesn’t have time for recovery. The extent of side effects from truSculpt iD is typically limited to short-term redness and tenderness to the touch. You should be able to immediately resume normal activities.
How long do results last?
Like other body-contouring methods, including liposuction, truSculpt permanently eliminates a small number of fat cells. The body will not grow new cells to replace them. Therefore, with healthy habits that maintain your desired weight, results can last years. This should be combined with a healthy lifestyle for optimal results.
