truSculpt iD: Optimal Temperatures for Optimal Results

For over twenty years, Cutera has built our devices with an unwavering focus on providing optimal patient care and ensuring patient satisfaction. Our goals when developing truSculpt iD were to provide the maximum possible reduction in fat thickness (average 24%) without compromising on body shapes and sizes that can be treated, and to reduce the treatment time to 15 minutes per session.

Trusted Reliability Through Real-Time Temperature Control and Efficiency

The truSculpt iD body-sculpting system uses monopolar radiofrequency energy to reduce the subcutaneous fat thickness and overall circumference in the areas that are often resistant to diet and exercise. Throughout the treatment session, electrical energy and actual skin surface temperatures are automatically adjusted to reach and hold a therapeutic temperature of more than 45º C in the fat layer during the treatment while keeping surface temperatures at comfortable levels.

truSculpt iD’s feedback mechanisms are even more important when delivering an automated treatment experience. The built-in continuous temperature monitoring and feedback system have been combined with a sophisticated energy delivery algorithm to allow a hands-free automated operation that’s safe and effective.

Temperature Control for Patient Satisfaction

In addition to maintaining consistent heating in the subcutaneous layer, the truSculpt iD temperature control system also keeps the surface temperature of the skin more than 2º C to 4º C cooler. As a result, the device safely delivers dramatic results while keeping patient discomfort to a minimum.

Following the procedure, patients may report some warmth and redness in the treated area, although this typically lasts for less than one hour. Some patients also experience mild sensitivity to the touch for a few days, but this is rare and generally minor. Patients are able to return to normal activities and exercise immediately following the treatment.

Patient care is about more than simply delivering results. It’s also ensuring the best possible experience for the individual throughout the entire treatment. truSculpt iD was designed to do exactly that.
