muscle sculpting technology. Designated as truBody, a series of truSculpt iD and truSculpt flex treatments work together to permanently destroy fat cells and build muscle for customized results.
truSculpt iD’s monopolar RF platform utilizes proprietary low frequency energy that penetrates deep into the fat layer and boasts an impressive average of 24% fat reduction while maintaining a skin temperature of 3° to 41° cooler than the fat temperatue. According to Kathy King, owner of Sculpted Contours in Atlanta, Ga., “The technology fights those stubborn areas that just frustrate us no matter how much dieting and exercise we do. Eliminating fat cells is a permanent solution to battling the bulge and truSculpt iD really can help almost anyone get rid of that extra layer of fat.”
Conversely, truSculpt flex uses Bio-Electrical Muscle Stimulation and Multi-Directional Stimulation (MDS) to provide a customized muscle toning treatment that stimulates five different workouts by replicating intensified twisting, squat and crunch actions. Arash Moradzadeh, MD, of AM Facial Plastics in Beverly Hills, Calif., reported that the results of truSculpt flex are more than aesthetic.
“We can target the muscles that patients want to see lean and sculpted, and they experience functional improvement as they become stronger. These treatments also increase basal metabolic rate, as the patient enjoys increased muscle mass in as little as four sessions,” he pointed out.
Together, truBody pairs the energy-based RF of truSculpt iD and bio-electric technology of truSculpt flex for outstanding results. In Ms. King’s experience, “The boost in metabolism with a series of truSculpt flex treatments enhances the fat loss and body changes from truSculpt iD like nothing I have ever seen before. Whether it is from pregnancy, recovering from an injury, or just trying to fight aging, these two procedures can really change your body in just a few weeks’ time.”
Nina Desai, DO, of Renew Skin and Laser in Sugarland, Texas also uses the truBody treatment program with her patients and has a preferred routine. “I like to start with the truSculpt iD to get the fat reduction process started immediately and then follow with truSculpt flex to get the muscles building,” she clarified. “I generally recommend one to two treatments of truSculpt iD and four to six treatments of truSculpt flex to achieve optimal results.”
Patient benefits are enhanced with truBody, according to Dr. Desai. “We are able to permanently destroy fat cells with the truSculpt iD and build muscle with truSculpt flex,” she explained. “I have noticed it helps us get our patients to their goals quicker. And with today’s busy lives, it is easy, painless, quick and provides great results.”
In Dr. Moradzadeh’s experience, this treatment gives patients the boost they need. He informed us that with truBody, they can help patients push past a workout plateau or complement what they are already doing. “We can target areas of unwanted fat, which patients cannot do with diet or exercise alone. truSculpt flex treatments can target areas that patients want to tone, so they get customized results. And the pairing of these treatments allows for continued overall body improvement because they stimulate a hypermetabolic response.”
Ms. King agreed, “People love that they can see such big changes in their body in just 12 weeks. truBody has made such a difference in the results we can achieve for our patients.”
