Body contouring, also known as body sculpting, is one of the fastest-growing treatments to permanently remove fat, improve muscle tone, and create a smooth, slim silhouette.
The non-invasive global body contouring market is predicted to reach USD $4.5 billion by 2025, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 13.8% percent, according to a report from ResearchAndMarkets.com.
Fuelled by increasing demand and awareness from consumers, combined with advances in technology. The minimally invasive body contouring market is experiencing explosive growth, and it is poised for yet another growth spurt with the introduction of muscle stimulating devices.
Achieving a toned, sculpted physique is a goal common among men and women of all ages throughout Melbourne, Victoria. But many individuals struggle to reach their targeted shape, whether it’s due to lack of time, difficulty achieving results, or more often than not just being stuck inside due to COVID-19.
But, with so many body contouring devices on the market how do you know which treatment is right for you? Leading the charge in the non-invasive body contouring industry is TruSculpt Flex and TruSculpt iD by Cutera.
At Dr T Aesthetics we offer both of these revolutionary treatments for body sculpting at our clinic in Glen Iris. The treatments are done separately as stand-alone, or as a combo for the most effective non-invasive body contouring option.
Let’s compare both devices and look at the body contouring results each treatment can provide.
WHAT IS TRUSCULPT ID?
Surgical fat removal by invasive methods, such as surgery or liposuction, used to be the only way to remove stubborn, unwanted fat effectively. But that has thankfully changed.
After years of testing multiple devices for fat reduction, I have at last found a great non-surgical option with TruSculpt iD. The treatment is highly customisable and can be effective for men and women of almost any body size. The innovative technology and science that has gone into the development of TruSculpt iD by Cutera have made it more effective, more comfortable, and more efficient than other devices on the market.
TruSculpt iD is a non-invasive fat-reducing treatment that uses radio frequency energy to eliminate fat cells. One of the best parts about TruSculpt iD is its flexibility and customisability for each patient’s needs. It uses 6 hands-free handpieces to treat multiple areas at once. Your treatment could take up to as little as 15 minutes.
WHAT IS TRUSCULPT FLEX?
TruSculpt Flex on the other hand is focused on muscle conditioning instead of burning fat.
TruSculpt Flex is a personalised muscle-sculpting treatment that adjusts to your fitness level, shape, and goals to strengthen, firm, and tone your muscles. TruSculpt Flex’s comfortable, safe, and effective technology is clinically proven to increase an average of 30% muscle mass.
Similar to TruSculpt iD it uses multiple hands-free hand pieces – a total of 16! – to target multiple small and large muscle groups at once. Each treatment is about 45 minutes and on average, patients usually require about four treatments to reach their body contouring goals.
HOW DOES TRUSCULPT ID WORK?
In some cases, diet and exercise alone are unable to get rid of all your unwanted fat because these methods can only shrink the fat cells; they can’t actually break down the fat cells. Many people diet and exercise for long periods of time only to be disappointed with the outcomes and still be left with pockets of fat that just won’t budge. Sound familiar?
This innovative body contouring treatment uses focused radiofrequency energy in order to heat the pocket of fat. This ultimately breaks down the fat and tightens the skin, leading to a better overall appearance. The results tend to develop in the months following the treatment as the destroyed fat cells are naturally removed from the body through the lymphatic system and treated as waste.
The results are natural and gradual, so your family and friends won’t know a thing. Your secret is safe with me.
HOW DOES TRUSCULPT FLEX WORK?
Using Multi-Directional Stimulation (MDS) technology, Flex delivers 3 unique modes of electrical muscle stimulation options to replicate crunch, squat and twisting actions.
With TruSculpt Flex 8 different muscle groups can be treated simultaneously, covering the largest treatment area in the body sculpting industry.
The direct stimulation of muscles through the electrodes located in the handpieces results in full muscle contractions similar to voluntary contractions during physical exercise. The contractions are more intense than physical exercise and such rapid contractions result in increased muscle mass, strength, and tone.
IS TRUSCULPT ID RIGHT FOR ME?
Unlike other fat removal and body reshaping technologies, TruSculpt iD is effective for both men and women of any fitness level. It’s most effective for those with a body mass index (BMI) of less than 30, who maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
Popular areas to treat include the abdomen, flank areas (“love handles”), thighs (including inner thighs and areas near the knee), back, hips, and upper arms, and the area under the chin. If there’s a bit of fat you can pinch it can be treated with TruSculpt iD.
You may be a good candidate for TruSculpt iD if you want;
- Non-invasive and non-surgical treatment to remove pockets of unwanted fat
- Gradual, natural-looking results
- Convenient treatment sessions
- A body-contouring device that is proven to safely and effectively eliminate fat cells
IS TRUSCULPT FLEX RIGHT FOR ME?
TruSculpt Flex 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, firmer thighs and arms or stronger calves and quads this may be the perfect choice for you.
TruSculpt Flex isn’t just for body contouring. This is also a great treatment is if you’ve recently recovered from an injury and lost muscle tone in the process or have limited movement, you could jump-start your recovery by building muscle quickly and easily through TruSculpt Flex.
You may be a good candidate for TruSculpt Flex if you;
- Wish to build, tone, and firm your abdominals, arms, buttocks, or thigh muscles
- Want to further enhance your existing muscle mass
- Prefer a non-invasive body contouring treatment over cosmetic surgery
- Choose to avoid excessive exercise to achieve results
- Have a limited range of motion and are unable to exercise effectively
WHO IS TRUSCULPT NOT SUITABLE FOR?
- Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding
- Those with pacemakers or defibrillators or any electronic, metal or time-released medical implanted device
- Those who have tumours or cysts in the treatment area
- Those who have metal or implants, especially in the treatment area
If you are unsure, there is no need to worry. We always get started with a FREE no-obligation consultation appointment first. This gives us an opportunity to examine you, discuss your treatment goals and any pre-existing health issues, and make sure that the treatment is the best option for your specific situation and circumstances.
ARE BOTH TREATMENTS SAFE?
Both treatments are safe and pain-free. Many patients have compared TruSculpt iD to a hot stone massage with no discomfort. For TruSculpt Flex as the treatment begins, patients feel a gentle contraction sensation and, as the intensity slowly increases, the muscle contraction intensifies but remains comfortable.
Both treatments have no side effects, post-treatment or any recovery time. So, you are able to go about your daily routine straight after the treatment. The treatments are also safe to combine together and create a fantastic overall body contouring result.
However, what is important is the experience of the practitioner performing your treatment. Any practitioner who performs body contouring should have extensive knowledge and experience of the different types of technology.
Unfortunately, too many clinics have inexperienced staff performing body contouring treatment with varying degrees of experience. This raises serious safety concerns as well as the following issues for the clients:
- If the right technology for a specific area is not used, an optimum result will not be achieved and abnormal side effects such as increased pain during treatment may occur.
- Misinformed information may lead clients to believe this is a weight loss machine results, and therefore created disappointed expectations
- A proper and thorough assessment process is not undertaken due to a lack of knowledge and experience. This can lead to clients receiving incorrect treatments, dissatisfactory outcomes, and unknown long term effects
