truSculpt iD is an in office procedure utilizing radio frequency energy that is applied directly to the skin that feels like a hot stone massage.

Patients can walk in, lie down, have the areas treated, then walk out within a half an hour appointment. You can resume exercise, other regular, vigorous activity and any other sort of job function you may have without any interruption. In about 12 weeks your body area will be smaller and your skin will be tighter in the treated area due to the biological effects of the true sculpt ID radio frequency energy.
Coolsculpt has a description of an unfortunate side effect called PLH- paradoxical lipo hypertrophy.
It is now been published that coolsculpting® patients have about a 20% chance that they’re fat area treated by freezing methods can end up actually bigger! We know that only 50% of coolsculpting® treated patients even get ANY fat shrinkage. The other 50% get very little or no results. For the patient that does get coolSculpting results, they are most often disappointed that their skin is now loose and deflated.
There is no paradoxical Lipo hypertrophy described with radio frequency treatment using truSculpt iD.
