Picture this: You’re sporting a sleek, black sleeveless tank or maybe a pair of denim short shorts. Your arms are defined and trim, and your legs could stop traffic.
This may seem like a vision board exercise, but thanks to advances in noninvasive body contouring technology, such transformations are increasingly possible. Cutera®’s new truSculpt® iD offers one-and-done sculpting of your upper arms and inner and outer thighs in one 15-minute session.
Sound too good to be true? It’s not, says facial plastic surgeon Dr. Arash Moradzadeh in Beverly Hills, CA.
“truSculpt iD utilizes radiofrequency energy to target the problem areas and give you the enhanced appearance and definition you are looking for,” says Dr. Moradzadeh. “The deep tissue heating of skin can provide improvements even on areas with compromised skin quality for an overall contouring effect.”
Unlike the applicators used with other energy-based devices, the six truSculpt iD applicators are roughly the size of a deck of cards, so they fit perfectly on smaller areas such as the upper arms or inner thighs. “This precision makes a big difference in the results we can achieve,” he says.
”Maximum contouring results are visible in 6 to 12 weeks, and there is no downtime except for some redness or warmth immediately after the treatment,” according to Dr. Moradzadeh. It’s relatively painless, too, and some patients compare the sensation to a hot stone massage.
Not everyone is a candidate for truSculpt iD. “If you have too much excess weight to lose, you may not get the results you are looking for, “says Kimberlee Smith, NP, owner of Coastal Aesthetics in York, ME. “Sometimes additional treatments may be required to achieve the desired results, but your results should be long-lasting,” she says.
The beauty of this treatment is that it can be personalized, says Smith. “We can create a bespoke treatment plan based on a patient’s concerns. For example, we can treat the upper arms with four applicators (two on each arm) and then use the remaining two to target belly fat or another area of concern such as love handles,” she says.
