The truSculpt™ system from Cutera , is a non-invasive, non-downtime technology designed to deliver customized treatments to multiple zones of the body, such as thighs, buttocks, abdomen and other stubborn areas. truSculpt™  is a simple, comfortable way to deeply heat the subcutaneous tissue. The heat helps shrink fat cells and promotes skin contraction, leading to a smoother, slimmer contour in the treated area, temporarily improving the appearance of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks.

The truSculpt™ system is FDA and Health Canada cleared for deep tissue heating and the temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite. The system also has CE Mark in Europe for circumferential reduction and fat reduction.

Following the truSculpt™ treatment, patients begin to see results in about 4 weeks with maximum results taking up to 12 weeks.
