In the quest for a more toned and sculpted body, many people turn to various forms of body contouring treatments. One of these popular and effective treatment options is truSculpt® ID, an innovative approach to fat reduction and body sculpting. This non-invasive treatment uses radiofrequency technology to target and reduce fat cells, resulting in a slimmer, more toned appearance.
What is truSculpt® ID Body Contouring?
TruSculpt® ID is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to target and reduce fat cells. This treatment can be used on various areas of the body, including the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and arms, to target unwanted fat and give you a slimmer figure.
Unlike other body contouring treatments, truSculpt® ID does not require any incisions or downtime, making it an attractive option for those who want to see results without having to undergo surgery. It is also gentler and has fewer side effects than other non-surgical options like CoolSculpting®.

When Will I See Results from truSculpt® ID?
One of the benefits of truSculpt® ID is that you can see results relatively quickly. Most people will start to notice a visible reduction of fat in the treated area after just one treatment session. However, it’s important to note that the full results can take several weeks to become visible. After the truSculpt® ID device destroys the targeted fat cells, it takes time for your body’s lymphatic system to filter them out.
You can expect your final results to be visible after 12 weeks. While many patients see an optimal outcome with just one session, some will need two truSculpt® ID treatments to achieve their contouring goals.
How Long Do truSculpt® ID Results Last?
Once the radiofrequency energy from truSculpt® ID destroys fat cells, they’re flushed out of your body and won’t return. However, body contouring treatments like truSculpt® ID don’t prevent new fat cells from forming in the same area, so weight gain can bring back the same unwanted fat. This means that your truSculpt® ID results should last as long as you maintain a steady weight.
With proper weight management, patients can enjoy the slimming effects of their treatment for years to come. Regular exercise and a healthy diet are crucial to preserving your results. Dr. Cobbinah is board-certified in obesity medicine and can give you tips for a healthy lifestyle or recommend other weight loss treatment options.
How Does truSculpt® ID Work?
The radiofrequency energy of the truSculpt® ID device heats up the subcutaneous fat layer while maintaining a cool, comfortable temperature on the surface of your skin. Since fat cells are more temperature-sensitive than your other tissues, they are damaged by this radiofrequency heat without any harm to the surrounding skin. Your body will break down these damaged fat cells and filter them out over the next several weeks.
What are truSculpt® ID Treatments Like?
The truSculpt® ID treatment process is comfortable and convenient. The treatment itself usually takes about 15-30 minutes per area, depending on the size of the area being treated. During the treatment, a handheld device is used to deliver radiofrequency energy to the targeted area. This energy heats up the fat cells, causing them to shrink and eventually be eliminated by the body’s natural filtering processes.
Most people describe their experience during the treatment as a warm, comfortable sensation. Some people may experience mild discomfort or a tingling sensation, but this is usually temporary and subsides shortly after the treatment is complete.

Is There Any Downtime After truSculpt® ID?
One of the major benefits of truSculpt® ID is that there is little to no downtime required after the treatment. Unlike surgical procedures such as liposuction, truSculpt® ID is a non-invasive treatment that does not require incisions or anesthesia. This means that you can return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment.
While some people may experience mild redness, swelling, or tenderness in the treated area, these side effects are usually temporary and subside within a few hours. In rare cases, some people may experience mild bruising or numbness, but these side effects usually resolve on their own within a few days.
It’s important to note that while no downtime is required after truSculpt® ID, it’s still a good idea to care of your body after the treatment. We recommend staying hydrated, eating a healthy diet, and continuing to exercise regularly. Doing so can help maximize your results and ensure they last as long as possible.
What Areas Can truSculpt® ID Treat?
TruSculpt® ID is a versatile body contouring treatment that can be used to target and reduce fat cells in various areas of the body. This innovative device is designed to reach small areas that other body contouring technologies may not be able to treat.
Some of the most common treatment areas for truSculpt® ID include:
- Flanks (love handles)
- Arms (bat wings)
- Back (bra bulge and back rolls)
- Double chin
Even at an ideal weight, many of us struggle with small fat deposits in certain areas that are hard to target with exercise or that don’t respond to our weight loss efforts. TruSculpt® ID makes it possible to finally sculpt away those trouble areas for an improved contour.
Am I a Good Candidate for truSculpt® ID?
TruSculpt® ID is an exceptional treatment option for most people who are overall healthy and want to slim down areas of stubborn fat. However, it should not be considered a weight loss treatment or a replacement for a healthy lifestyle. For optimal and long-lasting results, you should stay active and eat well, as weight gain can undo the benefits of your body contouring treatment.
This treatment is most effective for individuals who are close to their ideal weight. However, unlike its competitor CoolSculpting®, truSculpt® ID can treat patients who have a BMI over 30. TruSculpt® ID is safe for all skin tones.
It’s important to have realistic expectations for the treatment results, as it is not a substitute for maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regimen. During your consultation, Dr. Cobbinah will help you determine if truSculpt® ID is the best choice for your body and goals.
