truSculpt is a revolutionary, state-of-the-art body contouring procedure that is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction. It works effectively for cellulite and extra fat on the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. It is faster and more comfortable when compared to other fat and cellulite removal options.

truSculpt by Cutera is a radiofrequency technology that heats up fatty tissue, then utilizes the body’s own lymphatic system to eliminate fat cells. It is safe and approved for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Patients with all skin types can effectively slim down stubborn areas all over the body that are not responding to diet and exercise. If you want to look better in your clothes without turning to risky weight loss surgery or worrying about sticking to a strict and restrictive diet, truSculpt may be the best choice for you!

How it Works

The truSculpt procedure utilizes a small, flat handpiece that is gently applied by a medical professional to the desired treatment area. This handpiece sends radiofrequency waves to tissue located about one quarter to one half inch below the surface of the skin. The radiofrequency pulses last for about four minutes. During this time, fat cells are uniformly heated up and destroyed. The four minute pulses from truSculpt handpiece are repeated until the entire treatment area has been covered.

Your body naturally disposes these destroyed fat cells over the course of a few weeks. truSculpt has been shown to reduce up to 25% fat located in problem areas!

The Procedure

No preparation is needed for a truSculpt session. The procedure itself takes an hour or less, with the length of the session depending on the area that is being treated. For example, a small treatment area like the neck or knees may take only 20 minutes, while a larger area like the stomach or hips will take longer. Any jewelry located on the treatment area must be removed.

truSculpt is completely non-invasive. Patients report feeling a mild heated sensation during treatments that is tolerable. The temperature on the handpiece is adjustable for each patient’s individual comfort. There is no need for pain medication, topical anesthesia, or cooling gels.

Most patients require only one or 3-4 sessions with a one to two month period in between sessions. The exact number of sessions that you need depends on the size and number of areas that you are targeting with truSculpt.

The Results

Some patients experience sweating, tenderness, and swelling at the treatment area. These side effects are minor and go away in a few hours. No downtime is needed with this non-invasive procedure—in fact, many patients return to work immediately following the session!

You will begin to see subtle results in just a few weeks that gradually increase. Maximum results are seen up to 12 weeks after the last treatment session.

While truSculpt is great for many patients, it is not recommended for patients who have a lot of weight to lose. Typically patients with a body mass index (BMI) of less than 25 are ideal candidates for truSculpt. Your medical professional can help you decide if you are a good candidate or if you would benefit from another service.

truSculpt is not recommended if you are pregnant or have an internal defibrillator or pacemaker. It is also not recommended in areas where there is a tumor, tattoo, or metal implant such as a joint replacement. A quick consultation can help you determine if truSculpt is best treatment for you.

Stop battling stubborn areas of fat or cellulite that just won’t disappear, despite your best efforts! You can naturally and easily melt them away with truSculpt by Cutera.
