How does TruSculpt iD work?

It works by heating fat cells using monopolar radiofrequency until they die off and can be naturally eliminated by your body. According to the company, patient data shows an average of 24-percent fat reduction after just one treatment. You can see results right away, with the full impact of the treatment showing by the 12-week mark.

What does it feel like?

Cutera describes the treatment as being like “a hot stone massage” — a little redness and sensitivity post-treatment are normal, but you can jump right back into your normal routine, including exercise, immediately after you leave the doctor’s office.
What makes it different from other body-contouring treatments?
As far as the way it works, TruSculpt is similar to other noninvasive fat treatments but with some key differences.

TruSculpt iD vs. SculpSure

TruSculpt iD is probably most similar to SculpSure in terms of method — both treatments heat fat cells in order to destroy them. The big difference? SculpSure uses a laser to accomplish this while TruSculpt iD uses a proprietary radiofrequency technology; instead of just targeting the middle layer of fat cells between your skin and muscles, it can penetrate from just below the surface of your skin all the way to the muscle layer.
