Trusculpt ID is a revolutionary FDA approved fat burning device that came onto the market in 2018. The device utilizes radiofrequency energy to raise the internal temperature of fat cells for a specific time period required to kill fat. Sounds like science-fiction, right? So what is it like to Trusculpt iD your body at SLK?
At our clinic, every truSculpt iD treatment begins with a detailed consultation. It is vital to have a consultation to discuss and visualize your treatment concerns in order to build your custom contouring treatment. Every patient is unique and has different needs which is why there is not a one treatment fits all approach. In the consultation, a medical provider will map out your best treatment plan and amount of sessions required to meet discussed goals.
A patient can either be treated the same day as the consultation or come back on another day for treatment. The appointment begins with photographs of the treatment area in order to track progress. The Trusculpt iD device is then applied to the patient according to the agreed upon treatment plan developed during the consultation after the photos are taken. Treatment begins once the device is applied to the body. The treatment from start to finish lasts approximately 15 minutes to one hour. Trusculpt iD treatments are commonly described as feeling like a hot stone massage or the sensation of entering a hot bath. The temperature is gradually increased over the first five minutes then maintained for the last ten. Overall the treatment from start to finish is very comfortable.

When Will I See Results?
It takes 12 weeks to see final results after a single treatment, though some patients start to notice a change around six to eight weeks. The body relies predominantly on the lymphatic system to remove the dead fat cells naturally and this process takes up to 12 weeks. SLK Clinic recommends layering two to four treatments in order to achieve best results.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Trusculpt iD is very unique in that any side effects experienced are very minimal and very transient. A patient treated with Trusculpt may experience mild redness, tenderness, and some swelling. However, any of these side effects experienced are very mild and typically resolve within a few hours to days.
