Does truSculpt iD Tighten Skin?
While fat reduction is the primary goal of trueSculpt iD, it can also help tighten the skin. Typically, when you lose weight through regular lifestyle changes like diet and exercise, one of the side effects can be loose skin. Loose skin typically appears on those who lose a significant amount of weight at once. While you may be happy with how your body looks, loose skin creates a new problem that requires treatment.
This treatment helps tighten skin by heating the layers of the skin to promote collagen production below the surface. This treatment will help the body naturally regenerate the skin by increasing the proteins essential for youthful skin: collagen and elastin. When you choose this treatment, not only will you get a tighter and toned-looking body, but you will get tighter in more toned-looking skin.

truSculpt iD is a unique, safe, and painless revolutionary body contouring treatment that is completely non-invasive and requires no downtime. It’s clinically proven to eliminate stubborn fat cells through its advanced technology. You can personalize your results and get the body you want in as little as one 15 minute session.
What Does It Treat?
This treatment targets fat cells that appear in areas of the body that often hold on to stubborn fat. Treatments will lead to a more contoured and defined appearance of any area treated. It can treat the:
- Love handles
- Inner and outer thighs
How Does It Work?
truSculpt iD Works by using monopolar radiofrequency energy to heat fat cells to the point that they die. During the treatment, the radiofrequency heat energy well heat your cells to controlled temperatures that will result in damage and, eventually, cell death. Once the cells experience death, the body naturally eliminates them through metabolic processes. You’re left with fewer fat cells in your problem area and tighter, more defined body contours as a result.
How Does Radiofrequency Energy Work?
Radiofrequency has become increasingly popular for use and cosmetic treatments to tighten the skin, reduce fat, resurface the skin, and correct concerns on the surface of the skin like acne scars, general scars, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. Radiofrequency energy is thermal heat energy that penetrates below the surface of the skin to elicit a skin response that results in college in the last in production, as well as destroying fat.
What Makes It Different?
There are many different body contouring treatments available at different Med Spas all across the country, so you may wonder what makes this one any different? This treatment is versatile because it is a good option for many different people with different goals, even those who may not qualify for other body contouring treatments.
Some treatments exclude individuals based on their skin type, the total amount of fat they have in their treatment area, the location of their fat, and their skin elasticity. Most body contouring treatments require multiple sessions for results; this one delivers results after just one treatment. You can also target multiple areas during one treatment if needed to get the maximum effect and the best results.
How Much Fat Can I Lose?
On average, patients lose up to 24 percent of the total fat volume in their treatment area. One of the best ways to measure your results is with the measuring tape. As your body eliminates the dead cells from the body, you will notice your treatment area getting tighter and more toned looking over time. Taking regular measurements each week will give you some tangible proof that your body is changing and this treatment does work.
What Happens During Treatment?
Preparing for Your Appointment

We will begin the treatment by moving the handheld device over the surface of your target area. You will feel gentle heat pulses as the device moves. Those heat pulses are working to heat your fat layer and destroy those cells. This process will continue until we have targeted each of your treatment areas. The entire treatment will take 15 minutes per treatment area, so you can relax and know that you are on the way to a slimmer, more toned-looking you.
There is no downtime associated with this treatment, but there are some directives that you can follow once your appointment is over. To ensure the best results, you should:
- Moisturize your skin in the treatment area

How Long Does the Treatment Take?
The total length of your treatment all depends on how many areas you want to treat during your session. On average, treating both the abdomen and the love handles takes anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes at most. Quick treatment times are one of the many benefits of this treatment. It will give you the kind of results that you could never get from just one 15 minute ab workout.

What Does It Feel Like?

You will feel a comfortable amount of heat, which increases during the treatment to heat fat cells, and although your skin temperature will increase, you will remain completely comfortable.
When Will I See Results?
You will experience physical results after just one treatment. Your results will continue to improve over time as your body gradually eliminates the fat cells. Best results typically appear around 12 weeks post-treatment. Some of our patients love their results so much that they schedule additional treatments. These treatments build on their results and take their bodies to the next level.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Results from this treatment are intended to be permanent. That being said, you can maintain permanent results by staying active and eating a healthy diet. This treatment does not prevent weight gain, which can lead to the expansion of remaining fat cells in your treatment area.
Were this to happen, it would sabotage your results. Most of our clients have no issue maintaining their results because they already understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle pre-treatment. Those who choose this treatment are typically active and healthy adults who need an extra edge to take their bodies to the next level.
Is There Any Downtime?
Another benefit of this treatment is that there is no downtime. Your skin may feel warm for an hour post-treatment, but you can resume all of your normal daily activities and even work out after your treatment. You won’t have to plan around any type of side effects or downtime. You can even go back to work once your treatment is over.
