TruSculpt® iD is a safe and effective technology that is clinically proven to permanently eliminate fat cells in stubborn areas around your abdomen and flanks. With truSculpt® iD, you can get the body definition you want, even in areas that have been resistant to diet and exercise.
TruSculpt® iD Body Sculpting Before and After
How it Works
- TruSculpt® iD uses innovative Monopolar RF technology to selectively target fat and therapeutically heat it – until fat cells are eliminated by passing through the body naturally.
- Average of 24% fat reduction can be achieved in just one treatment.
- The treatment time depends on the treatment size and how many areas are treated. Treatment time is typically 15 to 30 minutes to treat the abdomen and flanks.
- Typically, only one treatment is needed. Maximum results are visible after 12 weeks. Additional treatments may be required.

Benefits of truSculpt®
truSculpt® offers a non-invasive approach to body contouring, utilising radiofrequency (RF) energy to target and reduce localised fat deposits in various body areas.
The treatment does not require surgery, eliminating the need for incisions and anaesthesia. As a result, patients can experience reduced risk and less downtime compared to invasive surgical alternatives.
The treatment’s main focus is on fat reduction and body sculpting. truSculpt® induces apoptosis (cell death) in the fat cells by directing RF energy into the targeted areas. Over time, the body naturally eliminates these damaged cells, reducing fat in the treated regions and improving body contours. The treatment is versatile, as it can be applied to various body areas, including the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, and hips, allowing for personalised treatment plans that address specific problem areas.
truSculpt® also offers a secondary benefit of skin tightening. The RF energy stimulates collagen production, crucial for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. The treated areas can then become smoother in appearance, reducing the risk of skin laxity after the fat-reduction process.
Patients often find the procedure quick, as it typically requires minimal time, depending on the size and number of areas treated. The recovery period is relatively short, allowing patients to resume their daily activities soon after the procedure.
Unlike drastic transformations, the fat reduction and body sculpting effects occur gradually over several weeks to months, providing patients with a more subtle outcome.
Before undergoing the treatment, you’ll need a consultation with Dr Scott Allison in Brisbane. He will help determine if truSculpt® is the appropriate option for you.
TruSculpt® iD is a customised and tailored treatment to meet individual needs.
The treatment can be effective for those seeking non-invasive fat reduction and body contouring. Good candidates for truSculpt® generally include those close to their ideal body weight but with stubborn areas of localised fat resistant to diet and exercise. The treatment is not a weight loss procedure but a way to address specific areas.
Ideal candidates should be healthy and realistic about the procedure’s outcomes. They should also be committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle after the treatment, as weight gain can compromise the results achieved through truSculpt®. This means continuing a balanced diet and regular exercise to maintain the procedure’s benefits.
There are some contraindications to consider. Those with certain medical conditions or circumstances may not be suitable candidates for the procedure. Contraindications may include pregnancy, active skin infections or open wounds in the treatment area, implanted electrical devices (such as pacemakers or defibrillators) near the targeted region, and a history of certain medical conditions that could be affected by the treatment.
Patients with metal implants in the treatment area should discuss this during the initial consultation, as the RF energy used in the treatment could potentially interfere with these implants. Disclosing all relevant medical information and history during your consultation is crucial.
Those with excessive subcutaneous fat, severe obesity, or significant skin laxity may not be the best candidates for the treatment. In these cases, alternative procedures or surgical options might be more appropriate.
What to expect during your consultation with Dr Scott Allison in Brisbane
During a consultation for truSculpt®, Dr Allison will aim to get a clear idea of your needs, goals, and medical history.
Dr Allison will evaluate your overall health, asking about any pre-existing medical conditions, previous surgeries, allergies, and medications to determine if truSculpt® is a suitable treatment choice.
He will also assess your current body composition, including weight, body mass index (BMI), and fat distribution in the targeted areas. truSculpt® is most effective for those close to their ideal body weight and those with localised pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise.
The consultation will also include a thorough explanation of the TruSculpt procedure itself. Dr Allison will describe how the radiofrequency (RF) energy works to target and reduce fat cells and the expected number of sessions needed to work towards your individual goals.
Dr Allison will discuss the potential side effects and risks associated with the treatment. While this is a non-invasive procedure with minimal downtime, patients may experience temporary redness, swelling, or discomfort in the treated areas. He will also discuss aftercare instructions to minimise these side effects and prevent risks.
If the patient is deemed a suitable candidate for truSculpt®, Dr Allison will design a personalised treatment plan tailored to the individual’s needs and goals. They will outline the recommended areas for treatment, the number of sessions required, and the estimated timeframe for seeing results.
Lastly, Dr Allison will address any questions or concerns the patient may have about the procedure, ensuring that the patient can proceed with the treatment.
truSculpt® iD procedures are typically described as feeling like a hot stone massage. During treatment, the temperature of your skin will rise but should remain tolerable.
As the session begins, the treatment area will undergo a thorough cleaning and preparation process.
A specialised gel will then be applied to the treatment area. This gel serves a dual purpose: it facilitates the efficient transmission of radiofrequency (RF) energy and acts as a protective barrier for your skin.
truSculpt iD has handheld applicators that emit controlled RF energy. These will be strategically placed on targeted areas of your body. The exact number of applicators used and their placement will be determined by your treatment plan.
With the applicators in place, the truSculpt iD device will commence the emission of radiofrequency energy. This energy is carefully controlled and regulated.
The total procedure time depends on the size and number of treatment areas. For example, treating the abdomen and flanks typically takes 15 to 30 minutes.
Post-procedure, the treatment area will be warm and flushed for less than one hour. While you may experience mild sensitivity to the touch for a few days, you can return to normal activities and exercise immediately.
Staying hydrated is important for your body’s natural healing process. Drink plenty of water in the days following the procedure to aid in flushing out the broken-down fat cells from your system.
Avoiding vigorous physical activity and strenuous exercise for a day or two after the treatment is advisable. This allows your body to recover and reduces the risk of any potential bruising or discomfort.
Avoid exposing the treated area to excessive heat or direct sunlight immediately after the procedure. If you’re spending time outdoors, be sure to apply sunscreen to protect your skin.
In the long term, you should maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly. TruSculpt iD is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle.
Results from truSculpt iD typically become more noticeable over the following weeks as your body naturally eliminates the treated fat cells. While you might see some initial improvements, full results may take several weeks.
The costs of your TruSculpt® iD treatment
No two patients are the same – each patient will have different goals and areas treated. Therefore, your treatment costs will need to be calculated during your consultation in Brisbane, using the details of your individual treatment plan.
The main contributing factor to the cost of your treatment is the size of the area treated and the number of applicators used. Dr Scott Allison will be able to discuss this with you at the consultation. For prices of each applicator please see our prices page.
Possible risks and complications
truSculpt® is generally considered a well-tolerated procedure, but like any treatment, it may have certain risks and side effects that patients should be aware of. It is essential for those who are considering the treatment to discuss these potential effects during the consultation process.
It is common to experience temporary redness and mild swelling in the treated areas. The procedure involves delivering radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat and destroy fat cells, which can lead to localised inflammation. However, these effects are typically mild and subside within a few hours to a few days after the treatment.
Some patients may experience tenderness or sensitivity in the treated areas, which can last briefly after the procedure. This discomfort is usually manageable and does not interfere significantly with daily activities.
In rare cases, patients may experience minor bruising at the treatment sites. However, bruising, if it occurs, is generally minimal and resolves on its own over time.
There is also a small risk of skin burns, though this risk is minimised by using temperature monitoring during the procedure to ensure controlled delivery of RF energy.
While truSculpt® is considered non-invasive, there is still a potential for adverse effects. Patients with a low pain threshold may find the procedure slightly uncomfortable during the treatment, although many tolerate it well.
As with any cosmetic procedure, results may vary from person to person. Some patients may see noticeable improvements after one treatment session, while others may require multiple sessions.
Patients should openly discuss their medical history and any pre-existing conditions before undergoing the treatment to ensure the procedure is suitable.
