If you are following a weight loss diet, you know how exciting it can be to watch your body transform as those extra pounds melt away. However, it can also be incredibly frustrating if you aren't achieving the results you desire or if you have certain areas in which the fat just won't seem to budge, no matter what you do.

If this is the case for you, you may be wondering what other options you have in addition to your weight loss diet and regular exercise program. Here's what you need to know about truSculpt iD non-invasive body contouring to decide if it's right for you. 

How truSculpt iD Works 

Body sculpting treatments have been on the rise in recent years as people seek alternatives to liposuction, surgery and other drastic weight loss methods. With truSculpt iD, you'll get a non-invasive treatment that can permanently get rid of fat cells, even those in trouble areas that don't respond well to weight loss diets and exercise. 

The treatment involves placing up to six panels on the areas you want to address. The panels can be used just about anywhere on your body, making it easy to customize the treatment to meet your unique needs. These panels then deliver heat throughout the fat cells underneath them using radiofrequency technology. 

Heating the fat cells to more than 110 degrees Fahrenheit causes damage to their overall structure. During a truSculpt iD treatment, up to 24 percent of fat cells will suffer irreversible damage, causing them to die. Over the ensuing weeks, your body will then secrete those fat cells naturally, typically over a span of up to three months. 

Benefits of truSculpt iD 

One of the biggest benefits of this type of weight loss treatment is that it is non-invasive. This means there is no recovery time needed. You can have a truSculpt iD treatment done and then immediately get back to your day. In addition, the treatment itself only takes about 15 minutes, making it easy to fit into your busy schedule. 

In addition to reducing the amount of fat cells in a particular area of your body, truSculpt iD can also tighten the surrounding skin. With more aggressive treatments, like liposuction and weight loss surgery, the rapid weight loss can leave the surrounding skin stretched out and sagging, sometimes requiring additional surgeries to remove it. With truSculpt iD, the fat loss is more gradual, making it easier for your skin to bounce back. 

Finally, truSculpt iD is completely customizable to suit your needs, enabling you to target just the areas you want. You can focus the treatment on a particular region, like the backs of your arms or your outer thighs, or you can treat multiple areas at once for more widespread fat reduction. Your treatment professional will work closely with you to determine the most appropriate course of treatment to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
