At St Croix Skincare, we offer the truSculpt iD the latest body sculpting treatment solution from Cutera. This powerful, non-invasive, body-contouring procedure results in an average of 24% fat elimination in the treated areas through the use of RF energy. Along with the fat elimination a secondary benefit is the tightening of the skin in the treated areas.
No matter what kind of shape you are in, it is likely you have “areas” or pockets of fat that you are unable to get rid of through diet and or exercise. truSculpt iD is YOUR ANSWER!
WHAT IS truSCULPT iD?
truSculpt iD provides an alternative to invasive liposuction surgery. The mechanism used by truSculpt iD is radiofrequency energy, which is delivered painlessly down through the epidermis into the dermis and fat layers of the skin through a variety of different handpieces.
This RF energy converts to heat and destroys fat cells, which are then removed by the body’s lymphatic system. In addition to reducing an average of 24% of the fat in the treatment areas, truSculpt iD’s RF energy also provides a secondary benefit of initiating new collagen production, which tightens the skin across the treatment areas.
The key to truSculpt iD is its comprehensive handpiece options. This system offers six hands-free handpieces, one hand-held handpiece, and one handpiece designed specifically for smaller areas. This provides great versatility.
HOW DOES truSCULPT iD WORK?
At St Croix Skincare we can activate multiple truSculpt iD handpieces to treat larger areas simultaneously. The varied handpieces allow us more flexibility with truSculpt iD. We customize each treatment to the individual patient’s needs, applying larger and smaller handpieces as needed to target precise areas.
The truSculpt iD handpieces deliver low-frequency, high-conductivity RF energy deep into the skin. This energy can impact the entire fat layer down to muscle, while keeping the skin surface temperature comfortable. The RF energy converts to heat when it enters the dermis and fat layers of the skin, and this heat makes the fat cell walls burst. Over the next few weeks, the body flushes these dead cells from the body as it does with any waste products. truSculpt iD destroys an average of 24% of the fat cells in the treatment area.
HOW IS truSCULPT iD A BETTER METHOD THAN OTHER CONTOURING PROCEDURES?
truSculpt iD is completely NON-INVASIVE!
No tissue trauma!
No blood loss!
Because truSculpt iD doesn’t create any incisions there isn’t recovery time. The handpieces rest atop the skin, directing the RF energy downward. This doesn’t create any tissue trauma. After the RF energy destroys the fat cells in the treatment areas, your body gets down to the business of disposing of the destroyed cells, but you can get right back to your normal lifestyle immediately.
HOW DOES truSCULPT iD COMPARE TO COOLSCULPTING?
CoolSculpting uses controlled freezing to kill the fat cells, while truSculpt iD uses radiofrequency energy (heat).
The cooling or “freezing” sensation can be quite painful while being delivered into the target tissue. This lasts a few minutes before the area becomes numb. With truSculpt iD, the “heating” is more like a hot stone massage.
Compared with CoolSculpting, truSculpt iD also makes for much quicker treatments. A truSculpt iD treatment takes as little at 15 minutes, compared with 60-90 minute durations for most CoolSculpting sessions.
The variety of handpieces available with truSculpt iD allows more versatility in treatment areas when compared to the large panels used with CoolSculpting.
Finally, CoolSculpting suggests 22% fat reduction in the treated areas after 3 treatments. truSculpting suggests 24% fat elimination in the treated area after only 1 treatment.
HOW LONG WILL MY truSCULPT iD RESULTS LAST?
This is permanent fat reduction, up to 24% in the treatment areas. Once the fat cells are destroyed by truSculpt iD’s RF energy the body simply flushes them from the body as with other waste products.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY truSCULPT iD TREATMENT?
No preparation is needed.
HOW LONG DOES A truSCULPT iD SESSION TAKE, AND HOW LONG BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?
Unlike some body contouring procedures, truSculpt iD is very fast — treating a single area takes just 15 minutes. Your session length depends on how many areas you are treating. With the six hands-free handpieces that are a part of truSculpt iD, we can now treat your entire abdomen in just 15 minutes!
As you would assume, your results aren’t immediate. truSculpt iD’s RF energy destroys the fat cells across the treatment areas, but it takes some time for the body to remove the cells. The RF energy creates some initial skin tightening, due to immediate collagen remodeling. But your real results will begin to show themselves in about six weeks, as fat cells are removed. Plus, the body will be building new collagen for the area. You will start to notice results after the first treatment, however for optimal results two or more treatments may be needed.
