Recent advances in technology are making it possible to increase strength while sculpting the body, and without having to put in extra time at the gym. The truSculpt® flex system offered at Dermatology & Skin Care Associates in Mason, OH is a revolutionary device that can sculpt muscles using induced muscle contractions.

How truSculpt® Flex Works
This unique device can treat up to eight areas at once and has been cleared by the FDA for use in toning and strengthening muscles in the buttocks, thighs, and abdomen. The device uses a series of electrical pulses to induce muscle contractions much like the ones you’d do voluntarily during exercise. The difference is that these contractions are far more intense and, thus, build muscle more quickly.
The truSculpt® flex has three different treatment modes, allowing us to change up stimulation direction and intensity to give areas a break and avoid any muscle damage during the course of treatment. Essentially, this is like going to the gym and doing 20,000 crunches in a session. Yet the technology is such that you should feel no different than you would after a particularly vigorous workout.
Individual results can vary, but the results are much like what you’d experience from regular, vigorous, muscle-building exercise and then some. As your muscles are broken down—which is what all exercises do—they will build themselves up stronger than before. And because this treatment has worked them so much harder than you could at the gym, you should see that much more result in your strength gains.
Another important benefit of this treatment is fat loss. While the treatment doesn’t deliberately target fat, the muscles need energy to power all those movements. They will take it from the nearby fat cells, potentially leaving you with a thinner physique to go with your greater muscle strength.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
This can’t help you lose a lot of weight, but if you’re already in reasonably good shape and not too far from your fat loss goals, you could be a good candidate for truSculpt® flex. If you’re looking for more defined abs or firmer thighs, this may be the perfect choice for you.
This is also a great treatment for certain other situations. For example, if you’ve recently recovered from an injury and lost muscle tone in the process, you could jump-start your gym routine by building muscle quickly and easily through truSculpt® flex.
Timeline of Results
Since you’re building muscle naturally, you should expect the same kind of timeline as you would from exercise. After the gym, it takes the average person three to five days to build new muscle. The same time frame applies to this treatment. As long as you eat well and keep up a healthy exercise routine, you should maintain your results. A periodic maintenance treatment can help you keep your new strength and look.
It’s important to note that the results of truSculpt® flex vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors. A series of treatment sessions may be required for optimal results.
If you’ve been looking for a way to tone your muscles and address unwanted fat, truSculpt® flex could be right for you.
