TruSculpt® ID Q & A

What is TruSculpt ID?

TruSculpt ID is a clinically proven advanced hands-free technology using radiofrequency energy to non-surgically reduce fat. It is a body sculpting treatment that eliminates fat in hard-to-tone areas. These include:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Chin

Fat cells do not grow back, so once they’ve been destroyed, they’re gone for good.

How does TruSculpt ID work?

TruSculpt ID delivers safe, concentrated radiofrequency energy as it selectively targets fat tissue. It therapeutically, and comfortably, heats the fat until it is eliminated. Patients achieve an average of 24% fat reduction in as little as one treatment. Trusculpt ID is clinically proven to be safe and effective in reducing stubborn fat cells permanently.  

During the procedure, Dr. Pastorek applies handpieces over the areas to be treated. The heat generated is adjusted to your tolerance as it affects the structural integrity of the fat cells, destroying them. Multiple areas can be treated simultaneously during the 15 minutes it takes to perform the procedure.

Over time, your body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells through the lymphatic system. In addition, the treatment stimulates your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, adding strength and promoting a tighter, more sculpted look.

How do I prepare for a TruSculpt ID treatment?

To get ready for each session, simply shave the treatment areas, drink 16 ounces of water, remove any piercings in those spots, and avoid caffeinated products in the hours beforehand since they can amplify how much heat you feel.

Is TruSculpt ID painless?

Unlike some fat-reducing treatments, you don’t need anesthesia, needles, or medication, so you’ve got nothing to fear. Dr. Pastorek never makes an incision, and he always asks if the heat feels too intense and can adjust the settings to make you comfortable.

Side effects are rare, but you may experience some redness in the treated areas. This should subside on it’s own within a few days.

What can I expect after a TruSculpt ID treatment?

After your procedure, just lie back and let your stimulated body do the work. Results are typically noticeable within three to seven weeks, but it may take up to three months to see the full effect.

Dr. Pastorek tailors TruSculpt ID programs to your specific body, and most men and women only need a single application if the fat is less than an inch when pinched. If you have more fat, additional treatments may be necessary. He also recommends continuing a healthy diet and exercise routine to maintain your results.
