Nonsurgical Body Contouring
Nonsurgical body contouring with truSculpt iD is a nonsurgical treatment that utilizes monopolar radiofrequency (RF) technology to kill fat cells. Most patients have Nonsurgical body contouring done on their thighs, buttocks, flanks, abdomen, and back. Unlike some other treatments, the truSculpt iD technology is safe and effective for all skin types and has much shorter downtimes. At Iowa Face + Body, we offer Nonsurgical body contouring to help patients achieve their ideal figures without all the time and discomfort associated with more invasive treatments.

"I just received my first laser hair removal service here! My friends who have had similar services done other places were all preparing me for how painful it was going to be. I met with Theresa and Kenzie, they made sure that the laser was at all the right settings for my specific skin type and hair growth. I was put at ease hearing them talk because they seemed to care that everything was set up properly and that my treatment would be as comfortable as possible. Their machine has a cold applicator that was cooling my skin at the same time the laser was removing my hair, and it was so quick and easy! I don’t know where my friends went, but they should have gone to Iowa Face & Body because my experience was nothing like theirs and I’m so excited thinking about not having to shave anymore! I definitely recommend this place!"- T.Y. / Google / Oct 09, 2019
"I started coming to Iowa Face and Body for their trusculpt treatments, which I LOVE. At my last visit I gave dermaplaning a try too and my skin was SO soft and GLOWY afterwards! I usually only use vaseline on my face, so the staff helped educate me on how to take better care of my skin. I loved the way my skin looked and felt so much, I will definitely keep getting dermaplaning from them now too!"- S.S. / Google / Oct 03, 2019
Ideal candidates for truSculpt iD nonsurgical body contouring are those who:
- have small to medium pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise
- are at or near their ideal stable weight as nonsurgical body contouring is not a substitute for lipo
- do not have metal implants, a pacemaker, or an internal defibrillator
- are not pregnant or expecting to become pregnant
Anesthesia is not required for nonsurgical body contouring since it is a nonsurgical procedure. At your initial consultation, you will have agreed upon your treatment areas with Jeanna Panosh. During your treatment, the truSculpt iD handpiece will be heated and applied to the designated treatment area or areas. It uses monopolar RF technology to target the fat and therapeutically heat it, causing it to break down and die. Most patients report that the treatment feels similar to a hot stone massage. The procedure usually takes 15 – 30 minutes for each targeted area.
What to Expect
Patients may experience a little redness, tenderness, or slight irritation, but these symptoms should only last a few days. Because truSculpt iD specifically targets fat cells, it does not disrupt or harm the skin of the treated area. It tightens the skin and reduces fat cells by focusing on depth, dimension, and definition. Many patients achieve a 24% reduction in fat cells in just one treatment. You may want or require multiple sessions, but they need to be scheduled 6 – 8 weeks apart. Jeanna Panosh or your aesthetician can provide more specific details during your initial consultation.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does nonsurgical body contouring cost?
Nonsurgical body contouring treatment costs depend on the number and size of the areas being treated. During your initial consultation at Iowa Face + Body, we will discuss the results you are aiming for and determine a treatment plan to suit your needs and budget. We will also talk with you about possible alternative payment plans that we accept at our facility.
How does truSculpt work?
The truSculpt technology utilizes radiofrequency energy to heat up and kill targeted fat cells. The energy is applied to your treatment areas in cycles of 15 minutes in controlled, comfortable pulses of heat. Your body then eventually reabsorbs the destroyed fat cells and eliminates them. The radiofrequency energy also stimulates collagen production, which means your results continue to get better over time.
How soon can I go back to my normal routine?
The nonsurgical body contouring procedure with truSculpt does not involve any incisions, stitches, or anesthesia so there is virtually zero downtime. You will be able to safely get back to your normal daily routine almost immediately.
How many sessions will I need?
This number is different for every patient. Some may see their ideal results after one session while others require two or more. At your consultation, Jeanna Panosh will discuss the number of treatments she estimates you will need. Also, some treatment areas may need more or fewer sessions than other areas you have done.
When can I expect to notice results?
Patients typically start to notice results in about 6 weeks with their optimal results showing at around 12 weeks after treatment. It takes time for the destroyed fat to be absorbed and eliminated from the body. Touch-up treatments done at 6- or 8-week intervals will have similar timelines for noticeable results.
