Is truSculpt® ID Better Than Lipo

Each body has its own favorite places to store fat, and those are often the hardest areas to address. Lipo and truSculpt® ID are two fat removal options that help you achieve a more sculpted figure. However, these are very different procedures, so you should consider which one fits your goals and lifestyle. 

What is truSculpt® ID?

Non-invasive truSculpt® ID is a body sculpting treatment that removes unwanted fat from targeted areas. It offers a safe, effective way for individuals to work toward their body goals, even those who are not good candidates for similar treatments. It can also treat larger areas and more areas at a time than competing systems without the discomfort.

How Does truSculpt® ID Work?

Your truSculpt® ID treatment begins with an applicator placed around the treatment area, which may include the abdomen, thighs, arms, chin, and more. It uses low-frequency wavelengths of radiofrequency (RF) energy that travels harmlessly through the skin and heats the underlying fat. The heat damages the fat cells without affecting surrounding tissues. These fat cells are removed by your lymphatic system. 

Is truSculpt® ID Better Than Lipo?

Liposuction or lipo is another fat removal treatment option. Like truSculpt® ID, it can sculpt and shape your figure in many of the same problem areas. However, these treatments are very different in other ways. 

What is Treatment Like?

A surgeon usually uses anesthesia while performing liposuction. They use small incisions to insert a cannula and move it around to break up fat and suction it out. A truSculpt® ID treatment takes about 15 minutes, and people report feeling mild warmth but no discomfort

How Long is the Recovery?

You can return to your usual activities after truSculpt® ID without downtime. Lipo usually requires up to a week of recovery before you can return to your daily routine and several weeks before you can return to your exercise routine. Lipo will also result in bruising, swelling, and soreness that do not occur with truSculpt® ID.

How Much Fat is Removed?

A single truSculpt® ID treatment can remove up to 35% of fat from targeted areas, more than other body sculpting systems. However, people who want to remove large amounts of fat may need liposuction to achieve their desired results. 

How Long Do Results Last?

Lipo and truSculpt® ID both remove fat cells from the body, and these fat cells will not grow back. Your results can last a lifetime, especially if you continue to lead a healthy lifestyle. However, a healthy lifestyle is not necessary to see benefits. 

Am I a Good Candidate for truSculpt® ID?

Non-invasive truSculpt® ID is safe for almost everyone. Good candidates should have reasonable expectations and be in generally good health. Unlike similar treatments, truSculpt® ID works on people with any BMI. The RF energy used by truSculpt® ID is safe for all skin types and tones.
