TruSculpt ID or EMSCULPT: Which One Is Right for You?


If you’re tired of dieting and working out and still not seeing smoothing and shaping results in certain areas of your body, you’re not alone. Many people just like you are fed up with a round belly, jiggly arms and buttocks. If fat reduction surgery is not for you, DeSilva Dermatology has good news.

We offer two of the most effective, non-surgical body sculpting procedures available today. Read on to find out which one may be right for you.

truSculpt ID

truSculpt ID® utilizes monopolar radiofrequency energy to gently heat fat cells so they can be flushed from the body. It is effective on many different fatty areas, such as:

  • the stomach
  • the flanks
  • the buttocks

Each session takes about 20 minutes. Based on a free body consultation, we will recommend how many treatments will be required to achieve the results you want. You can even treat more than one area at a time. And there’s no downtime after each procedure. You can return to your regular schedule immediately.

truSculpt ID procedures are typically described as feeling like a hot stone massage. During treatment, the temperature of your skin will rise but remain comfortable. It’s effective and safe — and the results are even and consistent.


EMSCULPT® 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 problem areas such as:

  • the stomach
  • the buttocks
  • the arms

The procedure feels like an intense workout — but one that you can lay down and relax during!

It will give you a toned, sculpted look with just a few treatments. There’s no downtime afterwards, and you can return to your regular schedule immediately. Most patients benefit from a package of treatments spaced every few days for a few weeks, during which time you’ll see results like greater muscle mass and less fat. It’s been FDA-approved for five different body parts and is most effective on the abdomen, buttocks and arms.

We can customize your treatment package to meet your fitness goals and return for enhancement treatments as needed.

Which Treatment Is Best for You?

The most important thing to consider when choosing between truSculpt ID® and EMSCULPT® are your body sculpting goals.

truSculpt ID® is optimal for fat reduction and, as an added benefit, provides some mild skin contraction.

EMSCULPT® is recommended for patients who want to build muscle mass, strengthen their core and achieve definition.

During your free body contouring consultation, we’ll help you choose which treatment is right for you. Or, a combination of both treatments may help you achieve optimal results.
