Posted by Susan Cross on Jan 12, 2019 4:29:00 PM


Cosmetic technology is advancing at a rapid pace, giving patients more options than ever before. Yet for many people, cosmetic procedures still can seem intimidating. In reality, procedures are growing easier and faster every year. Below are three non-invasive procedures offer dramatic results with little or no downtime. 


TruSculpt iD

TruSculpt iD is the cutting edge of nonsurgical body sculpting technology from Cutera, a leading developer of aesthetic systems. TruSculpt iD uses radiofrequency (RF) to heat and irreparably damage the adipose (fat) cells. The damaged cells are then absorbed back into the body, visibly reducing body fat. TruSculpt iD offers versatile, personalized treatments for different client needs body areas. Using real-time temperature control, truSculpt iD produces consistent results and increases patient comfort. Average treatment sessions last only 15 minutes, making it easy to schedule in a busy schedule. 

As body sculpting technology grows increasingly sophisticated, treatments are growing faster and more comfortable, and more people are giving them a try. Nonsurgical fat reduction procedures increased by 24.7 percent in 2017, and many clients are discovering remarkable results. In fact, truSculpt iD produces an average of 24 percent fat reduction within twelve weeks of treatment


Secret RF

Cutera Secret RF revitalizes and refreshes the appearance of aging skin. Unlike other anti-aging treatments, Secret RF combines both micro-needling and radio frequency (RF) treatments for a highly precise, and personalized procedure. The treatment uses tiny micro-needles to puncture the skin’s top layers and deliver radiofrequency energy at various depths. Targeted RF energy heats up the skin cells and stimulates them to produce more collagen, the protein primarily responsible for a buoyant and youthful appearance. Secret RF’s adjustable depths and handheld device allows treatments to be customized to address each patient’s individual concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and the effects of photoaging.

More than 70 percent of patients who choose cosmetic procedures are bothered by signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and skin texture. Fortunately, treating these concerns is relatively easy. Secret RF treatments frequently take less than 20 minutes and involve little down time. In fact, many patients can resume their daily activities immediately. 


Forever Young BBL

Forever Young BroadBand Light (BBL) is another option for restoring a youthful, refreshed appearance. BBL therapy uses photothermal energy to heat the upper layers of skin and cause them to regenerate, giving a younger, healthier appearance. BBL can treat wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and undesired pigmentation, such as sun spots, redness, and freckles without the need for downtime. Unlike other treatments, BBL can be used to proactively prevent signs of aging as well. One study found that Forever Young BBL patients who received at least one treatment yearly for 5 to 11 years were rated by 491 evaluators to appear about 10 years younger than their actual ages (and an average of two years younger than at the beginning of the study). In fact, dramatic results can often be seen after just one session.
