truSculpt3D is Approved by U.S. FDA for Fat Breakdown


As of June 2018, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted clearance for lipolysis or the breakdown of fat, on its premier non-surgical body sculpting system, truSculpt® 3D.

“TruSculpt’s approval for lipolysis is exciting in two ways.

First, it confirms how this technology works to reduce areas of unwanted fat,

and second, we know that lipolysis of fat cells leads to lasting results, which is great for our patients.”

said Dr. Ashish Bhatia, Associate Professor of Clinical Dermatology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. 

About truSculpt 3D and RF Energy

The truSculpt 3D system utilizes a controlled, monopolar radio frequency (RF) technology to deliver targeted, uniform heating of the subcutaneous adipose tissue to achieve what we believe to be the highest clinical efficacy in the shortest possible treatment time.

Focusing on three specific characteristics – dimension, definition, and depth – truSculpt® 3D offers an optimized and customizable approach to body sculpting for most size areas, large or small.

The truSculpt RF energy is intended to provide topical heating for the purpose of elevating tissue temperature for the treatment of selected medical conditions, such as relief of pain and muscle spasms and increase in local circulation.

Additionally, the 2 MHz setting for the 40 cm2 handpiece is indicated for reduction in circumference of the abdomen and non-invasive lipolysis (breakdown of fat) of the abdomen.

The truSculpt massage device is intended to provide a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
