If you’re a naturally skeptical person whose instinct is to question if something sounds too good to be true, you’ve likely wondered if nonsurgical fat reduction procedures actually work. The answer is yes, for the right patients. Clinical studies show that truSculpt® iD, which we offer at our dermatology clinic in London, Ontario, reduces fat on average by 24% after a single treatment session. Using monopolar radiofrequency, truSculpt heats fat cells until they die off and can be naturally eliminated by your body. Because this is a gradual process, the final results typically take a couple of months to appear.
What’s unique about truSculpt iD among the multiple non-invasive fat reduction procedures available is that it’s approved for patients with a body mass index (BMI) of more than 30. Other procedures, such as CoolSculpting® or SculpSure®, can be used only for patients with BMIs of 25 or less. None of the treatments are designed to be a weight loss procedure. But men and women who aren’t necessarily in tip-top shape can still benefit from truSculpt treatments, while the other procedures are typically limited to patients who work out regularly.
