What is Trusculpt® iD?
Trusculpt® iD is one of the latest advancements in body sculpting techniques from Cutera using hands-free and hand-held devices to deliver radiofrequency (RF) energy. The treatment can be customized to deliver personalized results to each individual patient.
The procedure is performed in-office by Dr. Hopkins or staff to reduce stubborn fat pockets resistant to diet and exercise.
How Much Does Trusculpt® iD Cost in Monroe, LA?
The cost of Trusculpt® iD varies, depending on how many areas are being treated to deliver your desired results. During your consultation with Dr. Hopkins or staff, she will develop a personalized plan to achieve your specific cosmetic goals, which will include the cost of the Trusculpt® iD procedure.
What are the Benefits of Trusculpt® iD?
There are numerous benefits of using Trusculpt® iD for body contouring treatments, and most patients are delighted with their results. Some of the most common benefits include:
- No downtime required; normal activities can be resumed immediately
- Virtually painless, often compared to a hot stone massage
- Typically only one or two treatments are needed
- Non-invasive with no scarring
- Eliminates fat cells and tightens skin
- Multiple areas can be treated simultaneously
How Does Trusculpt® iD Work?
Trusculpt® iD targets fat cells while leaving the skin unharmed. To accomplish this, radiofrequency (RF) energy is used to penetrate deeply into the fatty tissue, and is able to deliver heat to the entire fat layer while keeping the topical skin temperature cool.
The heated energy destroys between 20 and 30 percent of the fat cells. The damaged cells are absorbed by the body over time and are naturally processed out the same way the body disposes of all dead cells.
The cell destruction also triggers the body’s natural inflammatory response. This results in tissue repair and increased collagen production, causing the skin to tighten up, leaving a smoother appearance in the treatment area.
What Should I Expect from Trusculpt® iD?
Trusculpt® iD treatment is a good choice for men or women, ideally between the ages of 30 and 60, who are dissatisfied with certain areas of their body. It is not a weight loss treatment. If you revert back to bad eating habits, the remaining fat cells will expand to store fat.
The time required for each session is less than an hour, and normal activities can be resumed immediately following the procedure. During the treatment, you may feel some warmth from the RF penetration, but it rarely causes significant discomfort.
Most patients only require one treatment per area. You should see noticeable results of a smoother, more contoured body appearance within one or two sessions.
