Today’s cosmetic patients have high expectations when it comes to body sculpting. truBody® by Cutera (Brisbane, Calif.), meets the demand with a customized treatment series that combines two award-winning technologies for a complete body shaping solution. Physicians can now help patients reduce fat and tone muscles with greater customization and noticeable results, often in as little as 30 minutes per treatment series.
Nina Desai, DO, a board-certified dermatologist in Sugar Land, Texas, explained that body contouring can be a challenge considering patient demands and available treatments. “truBody technologies are the perfect duo,” she stated. “The combination of truFlex™ and truSculpt® gives us the ability to provide exceptional results with no downtime and better outcomes. I am able to target specific areas that I want to treat and repeat the treatments for patients who want more.”
truSculpt delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy with six paddles that are strategically placed on treatment areas for selective apoptosis. Fat cells are permanently destroyed resulting in an average of 24% reduction of body fat per treatment area.
truFlex enhances results with personalized treatments using 16 hands-free handpieces that can treat eight areas simultaneously to strengthen, tone and define muscles, and increase muscle mass up to 30%. This combination of safe fat loss with effective muscle building and sculpting helps physicians address a wide range of patients and body concerns.
“My demographics are everyone,” Dr. Desai reported. “My youngest patient is 26 and my oldest 74, and they are men and women of all races. I would say this is great for everyone who wants increased muscle mass and strength, less fat and a more defined, sculpted body. And most importantly, it works!”
According to Tahl Humes, DO, founder and medical director of VITAHL Medical Aesthetics in Denver, Colo., truBody offers versatility to her practice with no need for surgery, numbing or downtime. “truBody is one of the more customizable treatments,” stated Dr. Humes. “I can contour and tone the body to meet my patient’s body goals. truSculpt can be used on multiple body areas simultaneously to reduce fat in small or large areas. With truFlex, we can treat multiple muscle groups at the same time in a series of 15-minute treatment sessions.”
In Dr. Humes’ opinion, truBody results are superior to other comparative technologies on the market. “Our patients can increase the muscle volume of their glutes, contour their body, improve muscle function and increase core strength,” she explained. “truBody treatments help patients look slimmer, more toned and often provide a healthier looking physique. Treatment time is less with truBody than other technologies, and patients find the treatments comfortable. Many patients notice results in as little as two weeks.”
With the demand for body sculpting treatments continuously on the rise, truBody provides a comfortable, efficient and safe solution that stands apart from the rest. “Whether a patient is aiming to debulk and shed fat or increase muscle mass and unveil six-pack abs, truBody has proven to be an efficient and effective solution,” mentioned Dr. Humes.
