15 Minutes to a Better Body


(BPT) - Experts reveal how truSculpt iD® can reduce unwanted fat in one 15-minute treatment

There are lots of cool, creative and healthy things you can do in as few as 15 minutes. For example, you can walk a mile or run two, take a power nap, practice meditation or better yet slim your waist, to name a few.

Yep, you read that last part right: You can slim your waist and your flanks in just 15 minutes with truSculpt iD by Cutera®, with no surgery, stitches or anesthesia required.

“Many people come in and voice frustration that no matter how healthy their diet is or how much time they spend exercising, they can’t get rid of these stubborn pockets of fat — and now we have something substantial to offer them,” says Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Raja Nalluri in La Jolla, CA. “They are often looking for treatments other than cosmetic surgery. With truSculpt iD, most people can be candidates because it is so versatile and can treat targeted pockets of fat.”

Cutera’s truSculpt iD uses monopolar radiofrequency (RF) energy to reduce fat non-invasively, resulting in long-lasting fat reduction. “We see an average of 24% fat reduction in a fast 15-minute treatment protocol. truSculpt iD helps to improve our patients’ appearance and boost their body confidence, too,” says Dr. Nalluri.

Instead of just targeting superficial fat cells, truSculpt iD treats deep into the subcutaneous fat layer, to address specific trouble areas on the abdomen and flanks.

“Our results are typically visible within 12 weeks, and the fat reduction is long lasting,” says Abbie Woodard, CLS-A, owner of Louisiana Laserderm in Baton Rouge, LA. “With truSculpt iD we can treat a variety of problem areas on all skin types and fitness levels. Once the fat cells are treated, they are easily eliminated naturally through your body, without any downtime.”

What to expect with truSculpt iD

truSculpt iD features 6 ‘hands-free’ applicators, and one small and large ‘hands-on’ applicator. During a typical truSculpt iD session, the ‘hands-free’ applicators are placed on the treatment area to focus on specific pockets of fat. During the session, patients will feel a warming sensation in the treatment area. The overall experience is comfortable, and patients often compare the treatment to a warm heating blanket, and even getting into a hot tub.

“It’s comfortable with little to no downtime. You don’t need pain medication, topical anesthetics, gels or anything else. You may experience some redness and mild sensitivity afterward, but this is fleeting. The treatment is also very fast — just 15 minutes — so it’s easy to fit into your schedule,” Ms. Woodard adds.

You can jump right back into your life without skipping a beat after you leave the medical spa or doctor’s office. There’s no risk of scarring with truSculpt iD either because it is a non-invasive treatment and no incisions are needed.

If you are bothered by bulky fat in certain areas, you are likely a candidate for truSculpt iD. “For best results, we recommend that patients continue to eat a healthy diet and get regular exercise to maintain their weight and improve on their progress,” says Ms. Woodard.
