I HAVE GREAT NEWS FOR YOU…
(This is the text I woke up to one morning from Beauty and The Bag’s Editor in Chief Wendy Lewis)
????? I responded quickly wondering if perhaps I had won a Pulitzer for one of my groundbreaking articles on microneedling or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) LOL.
Would you like to try Cutera’s Trusculpt iD treatment on your tummy and flanks and write about your experience!!!!
My flanks??? I asked.
(True story: I never knew I had flanks.)
A back-handed compliment, to be sure, but once you are told you have flanks (by your editor who was known as the Knife Coach for her guidance on all things cosmetic surgery in her past life), there is nothing you wouldn’t do to get rid of them…and I mean nothing.
I bit and scheduled an appointment with Dermatologist Jessica Weiser, M.D, the Founder and Medical Director of Weiser Skin MD who recently opened a spacious new practice in Soho in New York City.
As a veteran health and beauty reporter, I was more than familiar with Cutera’s truSculpt iD technology. As a phobic and notoriously not-terrific patient, I was worried. (I insisted that the former Knife Coach accompany me for my treatment, which she did.)
truSculpt iD uses radiofrequency energy to damage fat cells and then your body flushes them out gradually over the next few weeks. The best part (and the biggest selling point for me) is that just one 15-minute treatment is needed to achieve as much as a 24% reduction in your (my) flanks, tummy, thighs, arms, etc.
It sounded almost too good to be true, but it wasn’t.
The six truSculpt iD applicators are roughly the size of a deck of cards, so they fit perfectly on smaller areas . The fact that it was ideal for smaller areas made me fell better about my flanks. Unlike other treatments which I have also sampled (it’s an occupational hazard), there is no pain. Like zero. All I felt was a warming sensation. It was like cuddling with a heated blanket.
Then the wait began…
After more than the 12 weeks have gone by, I’m feeling good and looking good too. Next up for me is to target the flanks that I never knew I had in the first place.
If you don’t have (or don’t know if you have) flanks that need sculpting, don’t despair. truSculptiD can be used to reduce fat deposits on many other parts of your body that you would like to see less of as well, including the thighs, arms, abdomen, chin, upper back and more. P.S. It’s also great for men.
