Who Is a Good Candidate for truSculpt® iD?
Dr. Freda Cobbinah is one of the first practitioners in Texas to offer the new non-surgical body sculpting treatment truSculpt® iD. This painless and non-invasive treatment reshapes your body through one procedure. If you are tired of fighting non-responding fat, you may be a good candidate for truSculpt® iD body contouring at Essential Med Clinic & Aesthetics.
What is trSculpt® iD?
TruSculpt® iD is a non-invasive body sculpting technique to reduce pockets of fat while tightening your skin. The hands-free device heats and destroys fat cells using monopolar radiofrequency energy in 15-minute sessions.
During your session, we place applicators on the target area and secure them with clear plastic wraps. These wraps hold the applicators in place as they heat and break down the fat cells. Depending on the size of the treatment area, some patients may receive treatment in multiple areas simultaneously.
The damaged cells are broken down and filtered through your body’s system over the following twelve weeks for an average of 24% fat reduction. Some patients see a decrease in the appearance of cellulite due to improved circulation with truSculpt® iD treatments.
Am I a Good Candidate for truSculpt® iD?
If you are interested in targeting pockets of fat that are not responding to diet or exercise, you are a good candidate for truSculpt® iD treatments. TruSculpt® iD is safe for all skin types and can target fat in the abdomen, buttocks, arms, bra lines, and back.
While most body contouring treatments require a BMI lower than 30, truSculpt® iD is FDA-cleared for patients with a body mass index over 30. TruSculpt® iD can only target pockets of fat and is not a weight loss solution. Before starting treatments, we recommend you be within 20 or 30 pounds of your target body weight.
At Essential Med, we do not recommend truSculpt® iD body contouring for patients who are pregnant, struggling with a chronic illness, have a cardiac pacemaker or defibrillator, or want more extensive results that would be better achieved through surgery. To learn if you are a good candidate for truSculpt® iD, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Cobbinah at Essential Med.
Is There Any Downtime with truSculpt® iD?
There is no downtime with truSculpt® iD treatments. Most patients return to their daily lives immediately after their sessions. You may experience some flushing, swelling, or discomfort in the treatment area, but it is minimal and resolves within 24 hours.
TruSculpt® iD is a perfect treatment for those with busy lives, as it only takes 15 minutes for most areas. You may go to your appointment during your lunch break and return to work immediately.
What are the Benefits of truSculpt® iD Body Contouring?
TruSculpt® iD often only requires one session to achieve desired results. The sessions are scheduled 8-10 weeks apart if you require more than one appointment. Depending on the size of your treatment area, you may treat multiple areas simultaneously. Some of the benefits of truSculpt® iD body contouring include:
- Permanent loss of fat cells
- Treats patients with BMI over 30
- Suitable for all skin types and tones
- Reduces the appearance of cellulite
- Enhances collagen production
- Sculpts areas that are not accessible to other devices
- Improves skin tone
The body contouring treatment sculpts your body for a tighter waistline or to contour your natural curves. Patients can see results within six weeks of treatment, with final results in twelve weeks.
What Results Can I Expect from My truSculpt® iD Treatment?
Most patients see final results after twelve weeks. You may notice skin tightening along with a reduction of fat in the treated area. Most patients see an average of 24% fat reduction in the subcutaneous layer.
You may be a candidate for our medical weight loss program if you want more extensive results. Dr. Cobbinah will discuss your options during your consultation.
How Long Do My truSculpt® iD Results Last?
Your results will last indefinitely as long as you maintain a steady weight. Maintaining a stable weight through healthy lifestyle habits is crucial for permanent results. TruSculpt® iD cannot prevent new fat cells from forming in new areas or prevent natural signs of aging.
Multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve desired results depending on the treatment, body area, and individual goals. During your consultation, we will discuss your treatment plan with truSculpt® iD body contouring.

Does truSculpt® iD Hurt?
TruSculpt® iD treatments are painless. During your session, the hands-free devices gradually heat up in cycles using radiofrequency energy to break apart the fat cells.

Most patients experiencing a truSculpt® iD body contouring treatment say it feels similar to a hot stone massage. Your skin remains at a comfortable temperature during the entire session, making it a painless and effective body contouring treatment.
How Much Does truSculpt® iD Cost?
The cost of your truSculpt® iD body contouring depends on various factors, including the number of sessions, the length of your appointments, the provider’s certifications, and the provider’s location. Your final price may be between $1,000 and $3,500.
