Muscle contouring is fast becoming one of the most popular aesthetic treatments for women and men. For many of us, the sculpted body doesn’t come easy. No matter how much energy and time we spend in the gym lifting weights, getting that “cut” definition escapes us. That’s where TruSculpt Flex can help.
This FDA-approved muscle toning and sculpting treatment for the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen has proven to deliver up to 30 percent increase in muscle mass.
What is TruSculpt Flex?
TruSculpt Flex is a non-surgical muscle toning and strengthening system that uses electrical muscle stimulation to trigger deep muscle contractions at high intensity. Patients undertake a painless series of treatments spaced over several weeks. The advanced Multi-Directional Stimulation technology (MDS) ensures 100 percent of the energy gets absorbed by the targeted muscles. With Emsculpt, just 30 to 40 percent of energy reaches targeted muscles.
TruSculpt Flex treats up to eight separate areas simultaneously, using 16 applicators. You and Dr. Dreyfuss discuss your goals in your consultation to determine ideal placing and muscle targets. Unlike most muscle-flexing technology, TruSculpt can treat both front and back of the body as well as both small and large muscle groups.
TruSculpt Flex costs significantly less than surgery. It can be used as a standalone treatment, or we can combine it with other body treatments, surgical or non-surgical, to enhance your overall results.
TruSculpt Flex manufacturer Cutera is the leading provider of light, laser, and energy technology for cosmetic enhancement. Cutera partnered with the leading physicians in the aesthetics industry to create this trailblazing technology.

TruSculpt Flex can deliver a toned tummy for women or chiseled abs for men, as well as a shapely, firm buttock, all without surgery. Your treatment regimen will depend on your specific needs and goals.
How does it work?
TruSculpt Flex utilizes MDS (Multi-Directional Stimulation) technology to condition muscles using three treatment modes combined in one session. Each mode replicates either the crunching, squatting, or twisting of muscles.
These treatment modes include:
This mode will warm up the muscles with twisting motions that stretch and slowly build a tolerance to the next phase: contractions.
This mode contracts and holds the muscles to the point of exhaustion, and then relaxes the muscle to enhance strength and increase endurance.
These deep, quick, and sequential muscle contractions develop new muscle fibers and elevate the BMR (basal metabolic rate), which reduces muscle circumference and builds muscle mass.
What Can I Expect from This Procedure?
Because treatments vary from patient to patient, your initial visit will be a consultation to assess your cosmetic concerns and aesthetic goals. Next, we formulate a customized treatment plan that helps you realize how we can effectively re-contour your body in those problem areas. If TruSculpt Flex is the option that best works for you, we plan your treatment sessions.
During a TruSculpt Flex treatment session, we apply a special gel to the target area. The applicators deliver the energy to trigger involuntary muscle contractions. The sensations are much like those you feel during a demanding workout. As the process continues so does the intensity, gradually increasing within your comfort level.
The number of sessions necessary will depend on your fitness and activity levels. We can administer treatment sessions 48 hours apart. Typically, patients get the best results with between four and six treatments.
TruSculpt Flex Recovery and Downtime
As with a rigorous workout, you may feel a bit spent after your TruSculpt procedure, but there is no downtime. Also, there are no reported side effects other than a sense that you’ve completed an intense workout session. This numbness may last up to 24 hours.
