TruSculpt Flex: The Latest Noninvasive Muscle Sculpting Technology

If you’re dedicated to a healthy diet and exercise routine, yet you still don’t see the results you want, you may feel like giving up. But don’t do that! With a little help, you can get rid of stubborn pockets of fat and tone your muscles. 

Dr. Mrudangi Thakur at Mrudangi Thakur Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery PC is excited to offer truSculpt® Flex, the newest noninvasive muscle-sculpting technology. Read on to learn everything you need to know about the latest in body sculpting. 

What is truSculpt Flex and how does it work? 

Put simply, truSculpt Flex is the most revolutionary aesthetic treatment on the market. TruSculpt Flex uses electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to tighten, tone, and shape your body in a noninvasive treatment that lasts less than an hour.

Unlike laser treatments that focus on fat cells, truSculpt Flex focuses on muscle cells. Most noninvasive body sculpting treatments, such as truSculpt iD and truSculpt 3D, either freeze or heat fat cells to destroy them. Then, your body sheds the dead fat cells and your new figure emerges over time. 

TruSculpt Flex, on the other hand, actually shapes and tones your muscles by delivering electrical stimulation to your muscle cells. The truSculpt Flex machine is powered by a technology called Multi-Directional Stimulation (MDS), which can replicate the muscle movements utilized during abdominal crunches, squats, and rotational actions.

The stimulation of your muscles via electrodes results in fuller, more intense contractions than most people experience during exercise, which can lead to increased muscle mass and strength. 

TruSculpt Flex has three treatment stages

Prep mode

The first stage mimics the types of movements you perform during a warm-up, including gentle twisting motions and muscle stretches, to get your body used to the stimulation. 

Tone mode

This mode induces contractions similar to those your body undergoes during squat exercises, and it stimulates your muscles until exhaustion. This technique mimics weight training and can improve muscular strength and endurance. 

Sculpt mode

The most intense mode, sculpt mode stimulates your muscles with fast, deep, repetitive contractions. It’s comparable to hypertrophy training or bodybuilding. This mode helps you build muscle.

Is truSculpt Flex safe?

Yes. TruSculpt Flex is FDA-cleared to strengthen, tone, and firm the abdominal muscles as well as strengthen, tone, and firm the buttocks and thighs.

What can I expect during a truSculpt Flex treatment? 

TruSculpt Flex can treat up to eight body areas in one 45-minute treatment, which makes it the most comprehensive body sculpting treatment available. First, you’ll lie down. Then Dr. Thakur will attach electrodes to your body with truGel, a sticky substance that will help deliver the electrical stimulation. 

The treatment will begin with gentle stimulation. You’ll feel slight muscle contractions that are spaced out a few seconds apart. As the treatment continues, the contractions will intensify. You may feel some discomfort, but most patients don’t find truSculpt Flex treatment painful. 

Once the treatment ends, you’re free to go. No downtime is needed. You may feel as though you just completed a tough workout. Stretching or foam rolling at home can relieve any muscle soreness that may develop. 

When will I see results from truSculpt Flex?

Results differ for everyone, as they do with any body sculpting treatment. You may see results after just one treatment, but most patients need 3-4 treatments to see results. Optimal results should appear in 8-12 weeks after the final treatment. To maintain your results, keep up with a healthy diet and exercise regimen.
