Body sculpting procedures are becoming an increasingly common way for people to get their bodies to look the way that they want. Since many of the options for body sculpting require surgery, patients are ecstatic to know that there are non-invasive alternatives on the market as well. The truSculpt line of treatments help patients look thinner and more toned.

What is truSculpt iD?

truSculpt iD is a treatment that reduces fat anywhere on the body in just 15 minutes. Using radiofrequency, fat cells are heated until they are destroyed. The body will then naturally eliminate the cells. While the heating process might lead to some discomfort, the epidermis remains undamaged by the radiofrequency treatment.

Patients can expect up to 24 percent fat reduction in just one treatment. Since more than one part of the body can be treated at a time, truSculpt iD is a time-saving treatment option for those who are unhappy with multiple areas of their body. Common treatment locations include the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and arms.

In most cases, only one treatment is needed. The best results are usually seen within six to 12 weeks of the treatment.

What is truSculpt fleX?

truSculpt fleX is another body sculpting option. However, this one is focused on muscle conditioning instead of burning fat. This treatment works by delivering electrical currents to your muscles. These currents mimic your body’s natural impulses to create strong muscle contractions. The device used in this treatment has been FDA-approved and is completely safe.

The device stimulates blood flow and metabolism within the muscles of a specific area of your body, which leads to an increase in muscle tone and definition. Each treatment is like an intense session at the gym.

During the truSculpt fleX treatment, you will feel your muscles involuntarily contracting, which is an odd sensation. As the treatment progresses, these contractions will become even more intense, leading to discomfort. The day after the treatment, you will likely feel sore, much like you would if you had a hard workout at the gym.

Generally, the treatment plan for truSculpt fleX will consist of six treatments. Each treatment is done a few days a part.

Determining the Right Option for You

To decide the best truSculpt option for you, you will first need to determine the root of your problem. Are you looking to get rid of fat or sculpt your muscles?

Those looking to get rid of fat will want to look into the truSculpt iD treatment. To tone muscles, you will want to talk to a professional about truSculpt fleX. If you want both,  Your medical team can create a treatment protocol to best fit your needs.
