Cutera Launches truSculpt iD, Personalized Body Sculpting

Cutera Inc announces the availability of truSculpt® iD, the next evolution in body sculpting with unique hands-free capability and the ability to treat a full abdomen in as little as 15 minutes.

truSculpt® iD’s sleek design and comprehensive handpiece options give physicians and other qualified practitioners the flexibility to deliver personalized body sculpting to patients through either a hand-held or hands-free treatment technique in a fraction of the time required by other body sculpting options on the market. This, alongside its unique ability to treat various fat densities and all skin types, highlights the versatility of the truSculpt® iD technology.

A non-surgical body sculpting system, truSculpt® iD uses innovative monopolar radio frequency (RF) technology to selectively target fat and therapeutically heat it until fat cells are slowly removed and excreted through the body naturally. Penetrating deep to treat the entire fat layer from skin to muscle, truSculpt® iD is clinically proven for permanent fat cell destruction. With real-time temperature control working to provide consistent results, studies have shown an average fat reduction of 24 percent, with patients seeing improvements 6-12 weeks following the first treatment.

“truSculpt® iD allows patients to achieve truly tailored results in a significantly shorter time frame, making it a very appealing non-invasive option for permanently eliminating fat cells in stubborn areas,” comments Dr Anne Chapas, dermatologic surgeon and Medical Director of Union Square Laser Dermatology. “With such an efficient technology and the ability to treat multiple body areas simultaneously, we are able to treat more patients in a shorter period of time as a result.”

“We are proud to announce the availability of truSculpt® iD, supporting our mission to develop powerful technologies that advance the medical aesthetics industry and help clinicians expand their body sculpting practice,” states James Reinstein, President and CEO of Cutera Inc.

“truSculpt® iD delivers results regardless of the patient’s shape or body type – allowing physicians to effectively treat those who might not be candidates for other contouring procedures. We believe the truSculpt® iD will expand the market with this comfortable, safe, and highly accelerated sculpting procedure. Additionally, truSculpt® iD further enhances our expanding portfolio of devices which incorporate a disposable element. These new consumables allow us to participate in procedure-based recurring revenue along with our physician customers.”

The launch of truSculpt® iD comes at a time of significant growth for the industry. Research shows non-surgical fat reduction was the top non-surgical and non-invasive procedure in 2017, with procedures increasing by 24.7%. Looking ahead, the body shaping and skin tightening market is expected to expand by 14.5% year-over-year.

When it comes to the effectiveness of sunscreen, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Anne Chapas of Union Square Laser Dermatology in New York City told Fox News glitter won’t make a difference.

“I don’t see any reason why the presence of glitter would effect the UV ray absorption/reflection ingredients in this product,” she said in an email.

Customers may still want to use caution when applying, though.
