truSculpt® iD

truSculpt® iD uses radio frequency (RF) technology that delivers heat to target the underlying fat tissue and destroy fat cells. With this treatment, we can treat up to three areas in 15 minutes. The heat technology melts fat and encourages collagen growth in the area being treated, ultimately tightening the skin.

truSculpt® iD Goals

truSculpt® iD offers a non-invasive option to help decrease fat in a specific area. It is highly effective at dimishing stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to other efforts. One to two treatments are typically recommended depending on the area and can result in up to 24% fat loss in the treated area. Results vary per patient.

truSculpt® iD Candidates

Most people are candidates for this treatment, but it is highly recommended you have a consultation in advance of treatment to ensure this is best for you. If you can pinch the fat, we can most likely treat it with truSculpt® iD. Please call our office today to schedule your appointment. 

What to Expect During Your truSculpt® iD

During the treatment, our technician will place up to six paddles on the appropriate areas. Once the paddles are in place, the treatment will begin delivering heat to the area. The temperature will slowly heat up and can be uncomfortable at times, but not unbearable. We recommend increasing water intake 3-4 days prior to treatment to help with lymphatic drainage post-treatment.

Recovering From Your truSculpt® iD

The area being treated may feel tender following the treatment, but this will resolve within a few days, and you can return to all normal activities immediately. Results are visible within 12 weeks. Some patients may elect to have additional treatments to get rid of even more fat. Our office will review all guidelines with you during your appointment.

Words From Dr Imber!

Simply put, truSculpt® iD is the only device that melts away fat and doesn’t leave loose skin.

– Gerald Imber, M.D.


Why Is This Different From Any Other Non-Invasive Body Sculpting Treatment?

This procedure differs in the use of radio frequency waves which uses heat to destroy fat cells, rather than freezing them. truSculpt® iD takes much less treatment time (only 15 minutes for three areas) and most patients only need one treatment to see results, unlike other devices which require a series of treatments. Most importantly, the radio frequency technology encourages collagen production preventing you from being left with pockets of loose skin where the fat is diminished.

What Else Should I Know About truSculpt® ID?

Everyone responds differently to body contouring treatments, but our staff works with each patient to develop a customized plan to ensure results are maximized during the treatment. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please email our office at [email protected].

Why Do I Need A Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon?

A board-certified plastic surgeon holds the highest levels of education and training needed to deliver the best results. This qualification is not easy to achieve, so by using a board-certified plastic surgeon, you also know they meet the standards of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
