What Is TruSculpt Flex?
All too often, building muscle tone can require an excessive amount of exercise. This strenuous activity might work for some, but for many patients it might not be possible or could even pose a risk to their health. But Dr. Lombardi believes that every patient deserves to have a body they can be proud of, which is why he is pleased to offer truSculpt flex to patients in the Tampa area.
TruSculpt flex uses a special method of electrical stimulation to improve your muscle tone, shape, and density, just like how physical exercise would. While such treatments have existed for some time, past methods were far less effective. They were far less adaptable and therefore could help a wide range of patients. With CUTERA’s system, we can not only treat large areas of the body, but we can provide treatments that are customized to match your unique body.
EMSculpt vs truSculpt flex
When choosing body contouring, you want to have the option that delivers the best results. Both EMSculpt and truSculpt flex are FDA-approved muscle-sculpting treatments. However, truSculpt flex has several advantages. It delivers these benefits by using a different method of technology than EMSculpt. TruSculpt flex works by delivering advanced multi-directional stimulation. This allows for more powerful effects compared to EMSculpt’s magnetic muscle stimulations.
truSculpt flex advantages include:
- More than double the number of contractions compared to EMSculpt
- More than double the amount of muscle mass gained compared to EMSculpt
- Up to 100% of the energy is absorbed by your muscles (compared to only 30-40% for EMSculpt)
- Up to four areas of treatment (compared to only 1 for EMSculpt)
Less chance for side-effects
- Can treat both front and back simultaneously (EMSculpt only can do one side)
- More affordable than EMSculpt
Why Choose TruSculpt Flex?
What makes this treatment truly the best around? It comes down to its combination of adaptability and delivery of stunning results. One of the core benefits of truSculpt flex is that it can be adjusted to best match your unique needs and goals. Gone are the days of a one-size-fits-all solution, which was hardly a solution to begin with. With non-surgical body sculpting, you can achieve better results faster than ever before.
Some of the key ways we can adjust truSculpt flex include:
- Matching settings to your fitness level
- Tailoring treatment to your body shape
- Matching results to your unique goals
How Long Do the Results Last?
As this is a non-surgical procedure, you don’t need to worry about a recovery period standing between you and your results. At most, some patients report a slight tingling in their treated muscles after a session. However, even this quickly fades, and you can get back to your life right away. No downtime at all!
Our patients tend to see their goals come to life after about 4-6 initial treatment sessions. But as each treatment is quick, you don’t need to worry about interruptions to your daily life. After each non-surgical body sculpting treatment, you will be one step closer to your goals, seeing improvement after each visit.
The duration that results stay apparent varies from patient to patient. It depends largely on your:
- Activity levels
Still, patients generally can see results last for months at a time. To keep up your enhanced aesthetic, we recommend a touchup session every 2-3 months to keep your results optimal.
How Does Body Sculpting Work?
TruSculpt uses your body’s natural mechanisms to improve your muscles. When you look at how muscles work, it is all electric impulses and contractions. So we take this concept and apply it by delivering safe and targeted amounts of electrical energy. This energy activates high-intensity muscle activity, even deep muscle, to deliver significant and rapid improvements.
To deliver the energy, we use a specialized handpiece and truGel to ensure comfort at every step. As a non-surgical procedure, there are no incisions or painful recovery periods to worry about. Instead, you come in for quick and comfortable sessions and then start enjoying your results.
Each session is approximately 45 minutes and allows your muscles to experience contractions that are similar to popular exercises such as:
