What Areas of the Body Does TruSculpt ID Give the Best Results?

Eating well and exercising without achieving the physique you’re looking for can be frustrating. Trying to get rid of pockets of resistant fat can be particularly difficult. A solution to this is body sculpting, which uses different methods to target resistant fat in specific areas.

Body Sculpting Methods

The two main approaches to body sculpting involve invasive and non-invasive procedures. Invasive fat removal methods include Liposuction and tummy tucks and are performed by board-certified plastic surgeons. They produce dramatic results – essentially changing entire silhouettes. While the results can be remarkable, invasive body sculpting methods can cause swelling, discomfort, lengthy downtime and even infections.

Non-invasive body sculpting follows an entirely different methodology. This technique stimulates the body’s natural processes of burning fat rather than making drastic modifications.

There are different types of non-invasive body sculpting techniques, but we’ll focus on TruSculpt 3D. With TruSculpt 3D, you can get the body you want without going under the knife – and it has little to no downtime.

What Is TruSculpt 3D?

TruSculpt ID is a non-invasive body contouring technique that uses radiofrequency energy to target and destroy fat cells throughout the entire fat layer beneath the skin.

The purpose of TruSculpt ID is not to aid in weight loss or to treat obesity. Instead, the system is intended to remove light to moderate fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise.

How Does TruSculpt 3D Work?

This body sculpting method uses radiofrequency to deliver intense heat to specified areas, breaking down fat cells without harming other tissues.

While at the TruSculpt clinic, your healthcare provider will use the TruSculpt 3D handpiece to apply radio frequencies directly to the targeted location. The radiofrequency pulses penetrate the skin and deliver energy to the tissue beneath. The heat from the pulses can be adjusted based on your comfort level.

Following the treatment, the area will feel warm to the touch and look red for about an hour. Your body will then naturally eliminate the dead fat cells. You’ll notice continued fat loss in the days, weeks and months following the procedure.

It’s best to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine after the procedure to prevent the development of new fat cells. Because the existing fat cells have been destroyed, this can ensure your weight loss is long-lasting.

Pros and Cons of TruSculpt 3D

Any kind of body contouring, even of the non-invasive variety, comes with benefits and drawbacks. Here are the pros and cons to consider:


  • Multiple regions can be treated at once
  • Incredibly fast, with one session taking only 15 minutes
  • Moderate discomfort, bruising or swelling
  • Tattooed areas can be treated as normal


  • The only drawback is that results can take 8-12 weeks to show up completely

Not only does TruSculpt have far more pros than cons, but it can leave you with tighter skin. While many fat-busting surgeries result in loose skin, TruSculpt’s radio frequency technology tightens the skin’s tissue while melting the fat cells underneath.

It also comes with no downtime. Afterwards, you can resume exercise and regular activities almost immediately.

How to Prepare for a TruSculpt 3D Procedure

You do not need to do any extra preparation before starting a TruSculpt ID treatment session. However, remove any jewellery or body piercings if they are in the treatment area. Make sure to clean your skin with soap and water. Do not use any body lotion or cream.

What Areas of the Body Does TruSculpt 3D Give the Best Results?

TruSculpt ID is ideal for removing fat from areas where the skin isn’t too loose and hasn’t lost its elasticity. The parts of the body that show the best results are the thighs, buttocks, arms, chin, love handles and abdomen.

How Many Sessions are Needed?

Many clients achieve the results they want in just one session. However, additional treatment may be required, depending on your desired level of extra fat removal and your weight loss goals.

Keep in mind that the best results take 8-12 weeks. If you are doing multiple sessions, schedule them at least 13 weeks apart.

Are You an Ideal Candidate for TruSculpt 3D?

TruSculpt 3D is a personalized and unique treatment tailored to the needs of every patient. This means that most adult men and women are potential candidates. The ideal candidates are people looking to shape body areas with hard-to-lose fat. They should also be within 15 to 30 pounds of their goal weight.
