What is the Best Non-Surgical Body Contouring Treatment?
When considering the best non-surgical body contouring method, we recommend learning about the risks and benefits of each treatment. Dr. Craig Schwartz is a triple board-certified expert in body sculpting treatments and after years of providing patients with other popular non-surgical body contouring treatments, he now prefers truSculpt ID® for most.
How Does Body Contouring With truSculpt ID® Work?
truSculpt ID® used monopolar radiofrequency (RF) energy at a frequency that targets fat cells. The fat cells absorb heat from the RF energy, damaging them and causing them to break apart. Your skin will not absorb these wavelengths, so your skin cells never overheat. Many patients report that treatment feels like a hot stone massage and even find it relaxing.
The RF energy in truSculpt ID® also heats the deeper layers of your skin, triggering new collagen production and tightening existing collagen fibers. Other body contouring treatments can leave loose skin behind after fat removal, but truSculpt ID® helps solve this problem. Your treated areas will look slimmer and firmer with less skin laxity.
truSculpt ID® vs. CoolSculpting®
People often compare CoolSculpting® and truSculpt ID because both offer effective, non-invasive body contouring. In some areas, truSculpt ID has a distinct advantage.
CoolSculpting® only works when you have fat that the applicator can lift and treat, while truSculpt ID® uses an applicator that rests flat against the skin.
Unlike CoolSculpting®, truSculpt ID® uses RF energy that generates heat. While this heat breaks down fat cells, it also stimulates skin-tightening collagen production.
No Risk of PAH
Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia is an uncommon side effect of CoolSculpting® and similar treatments. truSculpt ID® will not cause this post-treatment overgrowth of fat cells.
While a CoolSculpting® treatment can last up to an hour, your truSculpt ID® session will only last about fifteen minutes.
truSculpt ID is a gentle treatment where the applicator “glides” over the fat to be treated without the tugging and freezing of CoolSculpting. And patients are not left with a painful “brick” of frozen fat!
