If you’re struggling to see results from your weight loss journey in certain areas, you’re not alone. It’s frustrating when diet and exercise don’t seem to be enough when it comes to achieving the figure you want, but the good news is that you don’t need to resort to surgery. There are more non-surgical options on the market than ever, and plenty of ways to achieve the slim, contoured figure you want with the right package of treatments. Here’s what to know about our two most popular options.
What is truSculpt ID?
truSculpt ID® uses monopolar radiofrequency energy to gently heat fat cells so they can be gradually flushed through the body’s natural pathways. It can be used on many different fatty areas of the body like the stomach, thighs, flanks, and buttocks, and can also effectively treat cellulite in these areas. Additionally, truSculpt ID® can tighten skin as it generates heat. Each customizable treatment session takes about 20 minutes and you can opt for more than one area at a time in order to get the most out of your treatments. There’s no downtime after truSculpt ID® and you can return to your regular schedule immediately. You’ll see your results emerge over the course of a few weeks and can improve your results with a package of treatments customized to your goals and specific treatment areas.
What is EMSCULPT®?
EMSCULPT® is a revolutionary new body sculpting treatment that uses high-frequency electromagnetic energy to cause muscle contractions beyond what the body can achieve on its own. The result is intense fat burning and muscle building at the same time. EMSCULPT® can be used on areas like the stomach, buttocks, and arms for a toned, sculpted look with just a few treatments. There’s no downtime after EMSCULPT® and you can return to your regular schedule afterward. Most patients benefit from a package of treatments spaced every few days for a few weeks, during which you’ll see results like greater muscle mass and less fat. You might experience some soreness after Emsculpt®, but you can customize your treatment package to your fitness goals and return for touchup treatments as often as needed.
Which Treatment Is Best for Me?
The most important thing to consider when choosing between truSculpt ID® and EMSCULPT® is whether you’re looking for skin tightening or want to build muscle. truSculpt ID® is best for patients who have recently lost weight and are looking to reduce excess skin as well as stubborn fat, while EMSCULPT® is best for patients who are looking to build muscle mass and achieve definition.

Many patients see an average of 24% fat reduction within 12 weeks of treatment.
Ideal Contour is a noninvasive radio-frequency device that reduces the circumference of areas like the abdomen, arms, thighs, back, and bra fat. This treatment can also help to reduce cellulite, tighten, and firm skin. The device is gentle and comfortable. Most patients will feel the sensation of a warm, deep massage as the radio-frequency energy is delivered to the treatment area.
Emsculpt is a noninvasive treatment aimed at strengthening and firming muscles in the body. This is a great option that can define the abs and lift the buttocks. It uses HIFRM (high intensity focused electromagnetic) technology to create strong contractions in the treated area. By doing so, the muscle fibers become stronger which leads to the loss of excess fat and builds muscles.
