Dr. Taub Quoted in The Aesthetic Channel
“In May, Cutera announced it launched truSculpt 3D, an enhancement to its truSculpt nonsurgical body sculpting platform. The controlled, monopolar radiofrequency truSculpt 3D offers up to 24% fat reduction in one treatment, according to a Cutera press release.
Something else that might be important to cosmetic surgeons, truSculpt 3D offers advantages over rival CoolSculpting (Allergan), according to Amy Forman Taub, M.D., truSculpt 3D clinical investigator and director of Chicago-based Advanced Dermatology.
“truSculpt 3D can benefit patients both too large and too small for the specific applicators used with CoolSculpting. In addition, we believe the improvement in skin quality is superior to [CoolSculpting’s], although there is no study to prove that,” Dr. Taub tells The Aesthetic Channel in an email.
Dr. Taub conducted a study treating patients with a single truSculpt 3D treatment. She and colleagues objectively measured fat thickness reduction change using controlled ultrasound imaging and photography. And they found results from the ultrasound measurements and photography were in line with other noninvasive body sculpting technologies, according to the release.
There is no head-to-head study comparing CoolSculpting to truSculpt 3D, but Dr. Taub who has both devices at her practice and conducted research on Cutera’s technology, offers a few observations.” Read Full Article.
