Close to 10 years ago CoolSculpting by Zeltiq revolutionized our approach to body contouring, using a controlled form of cooling to selectively and permanently reduce unwanted areas of local fat. Today, truSculpt iD by Cutera adds a new non-surgical fat reduction procedure to our dermatologists’ toolbox.
truSculpt iD is an innovative technique, recently approved by the FDA, that uses radiofrequency to permanently reduce fat. Instead of the selective cold fat damage produced by CoolSculpting, the radiofrequency used by truSculpt iD converts to heat, permanently melting fat in localized areas. Here are the main benefits of the procedure:
Like CoolSculpting, truSculpt iD is not a weight-loss program, but a treatment to reduce localized areas of fat on the abdomen and love handles, inner thighs, arms and axillary puffs. With the addition of truSculpt iD, SkinCare Physicians’ dermatologists have a more comprehensive and versatile approach to fat reduction. We can now use either cold or radiofrequency-induced heat to produce permanent, pleasing, and natural results for our patients.
