Sculpt your best body.truSulpt iD allows you to personalize your ideal body with a non-surgical body treatment. It's comfortable, reliable and clinically proven to eliminate fat cells in stubborn areas around your abdomen and decrease circumference in your flanks. This can all be achieved in as little as one 15 minute treatment.With truSculpt iD you can get the body definition you want, even in areas that have been resistant to diet and exercise.
truSculpt iD is a nonsurgical body contouring procedure that uses monopolar radiofrequency energy to destroy fat cells throughout the entire fat layer, from just below the skin down to the muscle. It's commonly used to sculpt the abdomen, love handles, thighs, under the chin, and the upper arms.
The radiofrequency energy heats pockets of excess fat cells until they’re too damaged to survive, and the body flushes them out over the next 12 weeks. The heat also provides some mild skin-tightening benefits, as well as a temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
Cutera, its manufacturer, points to a clinical study showing a 24% reduction in fat thickness from a single truSculpt iD procedure, as measured by ultrasound. Depending on your fat reduction goals and individual needs, you may need an additional treatment, 12 weeks later, to see the results you want.
truSculpt iD has six panels, so it can treat multiple areas at one time.
One advantage of truSculpt iD over other body sculpting procedures is that it's FDA-cleared to treat patients with a body mass index (BMI) over 30, but it's not a weight-loss treatment. The best candidates are relatively fit and active, with areas of stubborn fat.

How much does the truSculpt iD procedure cost?
The price for truSculpt iD procedures vary depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. Submental areas (under the chin) can currently be treated for $2,000, while a session for the abdomen is ~$3,200. Create a customized treatment plan with your provider that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
How long is each session?
The treatment time is 15 minutes but we will book you for 30 min, part of which is set up.
How many sessions will I need?
Typically, you’ll see a noticeable fat reduction in the treated area(s) after one visit. Clinical studies show similar results from one treatment: a 15-28% reduction from CoolSculpting vs. 24% from truSculpt iD. However, additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your provider will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals.
What happens if I gain weight down the road?
truSculpt iD treatments kill fat cells, so your body sculpting results should be permanent as long as your weight remains stable. A healthy diet and regular exercise will be essential to maintaining your results over time.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.
What does it feel like?
truSculpt iD is a 15-minute treatment. Your provider will secure the handpieces to your target treatment areas. These will gradually heat up in cycles, as the monopolar RF energy begins to flow. The device heats the entire fat layer to ~113ºF, while monitoring your skin temperature to ensure it’s ~40ºF cooler.
The heat can be uncomfortable for some, but most patients have minimal discomfort; Dr. Meeker compares the feeling to a hot-stone massage. And because the procedure is relatively brief, any discomfort you do feel doesn’t last long.
There’s no downtime afterward, so you can return to work, exercise, and other normal activities right away. The treatment area will feel warm and look flushed for the first hour after your treatment, and some people have tenderness and redness for a full day.
What are the risks and contraindications?
- truSculpt iD permanently destroys fat cells, so your results will last as long as you maintain a stable weight.
- Its hands-free applicators can target larger pockets of stubborn fat or smaller areas, like a double chin.
- It’s the first body-sculpting treatment to be FDA-cleared for people with a body mass index (BMI) above 30.
- The procedure is suitable for all skin types and tones, and it has a mild skin-tightening effect that can help temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite.
- Fat reduction results take time to appear, so if you want to see an immediate difference and are open to a surgical procedure, consider liposuction.
- As with any noninvasive treatment for fat reduction, the remaining fat cells in and around the treatment location can still expand if you gain weight, so you’ll need to stay active to keep up your results.
- Reducing fat thickness can create more skin laxity in patients who don’t have good skin elasticity or already have moderate to severe sagging skin.
What to expect after your treatment
- Wear comfortable clothing.
