The truSculpt® device delivers controlled, yet comfortable, doses of therapeutic heat to the subcutaneous tissue layer resulting in both body sculpting and fat reduction. It is ideal for targeting stubborn areas like the lower abdomen, double chin, bra fat, back fat, love handles, muffin tops, and saddlebags. Two to 4 treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart are recommended. Many patients see results within 4 weeks, with optimal results typically achieved at 12 weeks. There is minimal downtime after a truSculpt procedure – patients can resume daily activities immediately post treatment. We also offer truSculpt Flex for muscle contouring.

What is truSculpt?

TruSculpt is a non-surgical body sculpting treatment solution that our board-certified dermatologists tailor to each patient’s needs and goals. It utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy to deliver heat to the entire fat layer, increasing the temperature in the subcutaneous fat. The heat shrinks fat cells while stimulating collagen production. Dermal bonds tighten to firm sagging skin as the body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells through the lymphatic system. We also offer TruSculpt ID at Spring Street Dermatology, which offers similar technology and results with shorter, 15-minute treatment sessions. 

Over 4-12 weeks, the body naturally eliminates treated fat cells, and your new, leaner form reveals itself. TruSculpt is an ideal cosmetic treatment for those interested in removing stubborn pockets of fat and reducing skin laxity with minimal discomfort and downtime.

What Does truSculpt treat?

At Spring Street Dermatology in SOHO, we use truSculpt to target fat in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Double chin
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Chin
  • Flanks 
  • Thighs 

Who is a candidate for a truSculpt treatment?

TruSculpt is a customizable body sculpting treatment that can benefit men and women of all ages and skin types. However, it is not a weight-loss treatment. It is an ideal treatment for those who want to target stubborn fat pockets, contour their bodies, and tighten skin. Generally, those with a body mass index of 30 or lower may be good candidates for truSculpt. 

When combined with truSculpt Flex, you won’t just lose fat but also build muscle and tone your abs, buttocks, and other areas that need contouring. A consultation at our Tribeca office will help our board-certified dermatologists identify your personal goals and determine if the treatment is proper for you.

What to Expect During a Treatment Session

TruSculpt is a comfortable procedure that requires no anesthetic. During the treatment, a handpiece is passed over the treatment area to emit RF energy. Pulses of energy heat targeted fat cells, causing them to shrink. The energy also promotes skin contraction that results in a smoothing and tightening effect. Heat levels are adjustable to ensure your comfort, and most patients report that the warmth they feel is comparable to that of a heating pad or hot stone massage.

Treatments last for 15-50 minutes, depending on the treatment area’s size. There is no downtime required, and you can return to your normal activities following treatment.

The number of treatments depends on your goals and the amount of fat in the treatment areas. While patients typically see results after a single treatment, 2-4 treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart are recommended to achieve your aesthetic goals.

TruSculpt FAQs

Q: Are there any possible side effects from a truSculpt treatment?

A: After the procedure, you may experience mild tenderness, sweating, and redness in the treated areas. These should resolve within a few hours.

Q: How long will my results last?

A: Results achieved from truSculpt should last indefinitely. Its innovative technology destroys fat permanently, so the outcome should be very long-lasting, provided you maintain a healthy diet and engage in regular exercise. The remaining fat cells may still enlarge with future weight gain, so you should stick to an active lifestyle to preserve your body’s contours.


Q: Does a truSculpt treatment hurt?

A: The TruSculpt system provides a safe, effective, and comfortable procedure. It delivers heat to the fat cells while maintaining a comfortable skin temperature, optimizing clinical efficacy, and maintaining patient comfort. Patients describe body sculpting with truSculpt as a more comfortable experience compared to other similar treatments. While other body contouring and fat reduction treatments involve uncomfortable tugging, twisting, pinching, or even pain, you will feel a gentle warming sensation from truSculpt. Most patients typically describe the experience as similar to a hot stone massage.

Q: What is recovery from a truSculpt treatment like?

A: There is no downtime after a truSculpt treatment, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately. While patients can experience redness, sweating, and mild tenderness in the treated areas, these side effects should resolve within a few hours.

As we mature, loss of volume leads to wrinkles, prominent nasolabial folds, thinned lips, exaggerated jowls, and marionette lines. The natural deterioration of underlying bone and soft tissue leaves a hollowed, aged appearance. Fillers injected below the skin surface can correct age-related volume loss.
