truSculpt® iD received FDA (Federal Drug Administration) clearance in 2018 and has years of research and testing to back up its effectiveness as a safe treatment for fat reduction. Cutera, the company that developed the treatment, has over 20 years of experience developing aesthetic technology to help people look and feel better.
truSculpt® iD uses radio frequency waves and heat that penetrates the skin to target fat cells underneath. The temperature of the handheld device used to deliver the waves and heat has been compared to that of a hot stone massage. The treatment does not burn or harm the skin or muscle tissue.
The fat cells are destroyed and are naturally excreted by the body for several weeks after receiving the treatment. Unlike surgical procedures that reduce fat, there are no medical risks to having a truSculpt® treatment.
