But if you’re a woman of child-bearing years, you may have wondered whether TruSculpt iD® treatment will affect your chances of getting pregnant. Here are some facts that should put your mind at ease.
TruSculpt iD® Pre-Pregnancy
If you’ve recently had a TruSculpt iD® treatment session done on any part of your body, because the procedure only kills targeted fat cells, there’s no recovery period necessary. This means you don’t have to wait to get pregnant after having TruSculpt iD® treatment.
Another misconception about TruSculpt iD® is that it affects your fertility. But the truth is, TruSculpt iD® non-surgical fat reduction technique doesn’t affect anything beyond the layer of treated skin and fat. In fact, the heat and radio frequency from TruSculpt iD® do not reach the reproductive organs like your ovaries that are deep beyond the area of treatment. But just because TruSculpt iD® doesn’t affect fertility doesn’t mean you should get a treatment session while you’re actively trying to get pregnant.
While it’s safe to start trying to get pregnant after TruSculpt iD® treatment, even though TruSculpt iD® kills the unwanted fat cells in the targeted area, it won’t stop new fatty tissue from developing in the area after significant weight gain. During pregnancy, it’s normal to gain weight. For this reason, women that have experienced significant weight gain in prior pregnancies, should wait until after your pregnancy to undergo treatment.
TruSculpt iD® During Pregnancy
While TruSculpt iD® is safe, there’s no research done on the effects TruSculpt iD® can have on pregnant women and their growing fetuses. To avoid any risk to you or your child, we highly suggest waiting until after delivery to get TruSculpt iD® treatment.
If you’ve had TruSculpt iD® done prior to conceiving, the results can vary. Women who are able to maintain their weight can notice the effects of their TruSculpt iD® sessions shedding away fat cells. However, it’s possible for some women not to see a difference or grow new fat cells in their treated area. If you’re actively trying to get pregnant, getting non-surgical fat reduction treatment in an effort to destroy unwanted fat before putting on baby weight is not recommended. This is a time to think about the health of yourself and your baby. There will be plenty of time to shed the extra weight after delivery. And who knows, maybe you’ll get lucky and lose the weight naturally!

TruSculpt iD® Postpartum
Though weight loss does normally begin as soon as a woman gives birth, weight-loss timetables vary depending on a variety of factors such as how much weight was gained during pregnancy, whether or not the mum is breastfeeding, age, diet and exercise habits, and activity level. New mums generally drop approximately 5.5 kilos (12 pounds) as the uterus shrinks back down, but some stubborn fat persists long after giving birth.
If you’re a new mum and you’re worried that your body isn’t bouncing right back, don’t worry! You’re human—not a rubber band, and your body isn’t going to just snap back into place postpartum as if nothing happened. It takes time. And for nursing mums, the time it takes to get back to pre-pregnancy physique may be even longer as the body is still producing nutrients.
There’s good news, however. While many of the fat-reduction and other cosmetic treatments that were off limits during pregnancy are safe and available during the postpartum period.
Because your bdy changes a lot during pregnancy, it’s best to give yourself time to recuperate during the postpartum stage before seeking any cosmetic procedure.

By delivering radiofrequency energy to the treatment areas, excess fat cells absorb the energy in the form of heat, effectively destroying stubborn fat without harming the skin at all. Once destroyed, the body naturally takes over and flushes out the old fat cells through the lymphatic system.
The treatment, which takes from 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated, feels like a warm sensation on the skin, similar to a hot stone massage. Most people undergoing the treatment have not reported any pain or discomfort during the procedure and no prescription pain medications, cooling gels, or compression garments are required. Mild redness, swelling, and tenderness in the treated area can last for approximately 10-12 hours, for which patients are advised to take mild OTC analgesics such as Tylenol.
For most people, TruSculpt iD treatment requires two sessions, spaced ut 4 to 6 weeks apart. In most cases, client achieve maximum results after approximately 10-12 weeks, however some patients begin to see improvement after as little as 4 weeks.
