truSculpt™ Cutera RF Fat Reduction
truSculpt™ is a non-invasive technology that addresses small areas of moderate excess fat on the body. truSculpt™ is clinically proven to deliver deep, uniform heating to all body areas with comfort and ease to achieve selective fat reduction in small areas of resistant fat deposits in people with normal BMI. It is not a suitable substitute for weight loss.
For those who have unwanted fat on the upper arms, inner thighs, abdomen, chin or elsewhere, the Cutera truSculpt™ offers a 100% non-invasive alternative to other treatments.
Who can benefit from the truSculpt™ treatment?
Those who are healthy, within a normal weight range, exercise regularly and have that stubborn area of fat that just won’t shift – inner thighs, abdomen, upper arms, double chin, “bra bulge”.
How does truSculpt™ work?
During your truSculpt™ session, a flat hand-held device is gently held against the area you want to treat, where it will deliver radio frequency to heat your tissue approximately ¼ to ½ an inch deep below the skin — just deep enough to heat unwanted fat to about 45°c
Your fat literally cannot take this heat and after treatment, up to 25% of the cells in the area die off. Your body then naturally gets rid of these dead cells as waste over the next 6-8 weeks, leaving you noticeably trimmer, reducing fat bulges.
The truSculpt™ device only requires about 4 minutes of contact at a time, allowing for effective heat penetration without damage to the skin. Treatment is typically comfortable, with no anaesthesia necessary.
No extensive pre or post-treatment care is needed—you can come in on your lunch break and go back to work as usual.

What is truSculpt™?
truSculpt™ is a non-invasive RF (Radio Frequency) technology that delivers deep heating to adipose tissue for body sculpting, fat reduction and skin tightening.
Am I the right candidate for truSculpt™?
It’s best to come in for a consultation so that we are able to assess whether truSculpt™ is the best treatment for you. Typically appropriate patients have a BMI of less than 30 and have unwanted fat in defined areas of the body. It’s not a replacement for a healthy diet.
Are there are some people who cannot be treated with truSculpt™?
Your suitability for truSculpt™ will be determined during your consultation. Patients that cannot be treated with truSculpt™ include:
- Those who are pregnant
- Those with cardiac pacemakers or internal defibrillators
- Those with malignant or benign tumors in the target area
- Those with metallic implants in the target area of any kind including joint replacements.
Can truSculpt™ be used on all skin types?
Yes, truSculpt™ can be used on all skin types.
How long does a treatment take?
Treatment time depends on the area(s) treated, but typically a treatment takes between 15 minutes to an hour per area treated.
How many treatments will be needed?
Typically 2 to 3 treatments are needed for each area, spaced 4 weeks apart, depending on the location in your body.
When will I start seeing visible results?
The energy delivered by truSculpt triggers the body’s immune system to break down fat cells in treated areas. This process takes anywhere from 4 weeks to 3 months. You may begin to see results anytime during that period, or even later.
What do I need to do before a treatment?
There is no special preparation needed. You will have to remove any jewellery or body piercings in the area prior to treatment.

What happens during the treatment?
After a brief pre-treatment preparation, we will hold the truSculpt™ handpiece to your skin and deliver targeted pulses of appropriately calibrated RF energy. Each pulse will last an average of 4 minutes; upon completion, the handpiece will move to an adjacent area to begin a new pulse. The entire treatment will typically last between 15 minutes and an hour, depending on the number of pulses applied.
What does it feel like?
The RF energy will heat deep layers of the skin, but most patients find the resulting discomfort easily tolerable. We can adjust the temperature depending upon your comfort level. Typically no pain medication, topical anaesthetics, gels, or active cooling will be needed.
Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
Yes, the procedure is non-invasive, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Patients frequently return to work right after the session.
Is truSculpt™ safe? Is it painful? Are there side effects?
The truSculpt system is designed to provide a safe and comfortable procedure. Typically, there is no downtime after the treatment, though patients may experience mild discomfort. Side effects can include redness, sweating, and mild tenderness in the treated areas. Usually these side effects resolve within a few hours. We will discuss what to expect during and after treatment during your consultation, and will answer any questions you may have.
Why did we choose RF over “fat freezing” to use in Lyte?
A great question. Although fat freezing or “criopylosis” has received lots of attention both in the media and on reality TV shows, the after effects, including evidence of peripheral nerve damage have become a concern. As far as we are concerned, RF produces great results with less risk.
