What is Non-Surgical Muscle Sculpting?

Posted by Dr Theva in Blog, Body.

With modern technology, muscle sculpting and body contouring machines are becoming more and more commonplace in the world of aesthetic medicine. These machines are capable of everything from eliminating fat to skin tightening to creating muscle tone and definition.

You can only tone so much using natural methods when it comes to sculpting muscle. Muscle sculpting machines offer a way to finally reach your aesthetic goals in a more practical way. Combined with treatments to melt stubborn fat cells, you can now feel and look better sooner.

What is Non-Surgical Body Sculpting?

It takes a long time and a lot of commitment to build muscle. When you work out, muscles are stimulated by contractions, and once a threshold is reached, the muscle fibers tear. This triggers your body’s natural repair process, which repairs the fibers and muscle tissue, resulting in an increase in muscle size and strength.

These muscle contractions, which are usually performed during regular exercise, can be replicated with technology. This is the essence of non-surgical muscle sculpting. Non-surgical body sculpting is a fantastic alternative for people who are unable to exercise, due to injury or recovering from surgery, or as a supplement to an existing muscle-building routine for better and faster results.

CoolTone, and TruSculpt Flex are all FDA & TGA approved treatments to enhance muscle tone. All are non-invasive, require zero incisions or injections, and have minimal downtime. Since each treatment option helps achieve similar measurable results, which one is better?

What is CoolTone and How Does it Work?

If you have been researching non-invasive body contouring procedures, you would have come across CoolSculpting. Yes! The non surgical fat reduction treatments that you see advertised everywhere. CoolTone is the sister machine of CoolSculpt. While CoolSculpt is used to freez fat, CoolTone is used for muscle definition.

CoolTone works with a process called magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS). It sends electromagnetic energy into the muscles in your body, which then cause involuntary contractions. It feels like a light, non-painful, muscle spasm. The treatment mainly targets the abdomen, buttocks and outer thighs.

What is Electromagnetic Stimulation and How Does it Work?

Electromagnetic Stimulation is another very popular body sculpting technology. Much like CoolSculpt it utilises electromagnetic stimulation to induce muscle contractions. The average increase in muscle mass after this treatment is around 16%.

During electromagnetic stimulation, a magnetic field is applied over the desired treatment area resulting in the activation of peripheral nerves that stimulates the muscles. It usually requires bulkier hardware and does not provide focused stimulus to the muscle like TruSculpt flex.

What is TruSculpt Flex and How Does it Work?

The TruSculpt flex uses Electro Muscular, or Multi-Directional Stimulation (MDS) energy to precisely target muscles and forces controlled contractions through electrical currents.

Each session is the equivalent of 54,000 repetitions per muscle group. Meaning you are technically doing 54 000 squats or crunches in 15 minutes.

Why does this precise muscle targeting work so well?

Your larger muscle groups, such as your abdominal muscles, thigh muscles, and buttocks areas, are all made of smaller groups of muscles that have unique, specialised functions. TruSculpt flex utilises multi-directional stimulation through electrical pulses to hit all these individual muscle groups at the same time and achieve supramaximal muscle contractions. (the kind of muscle contractions that cannot be achieved by doing normal exercise). With its targeted approach, TruSculpt flex patients typically see on average, a 30% increase in muscle mass.

What Areas Can Be Treatment with TruSculpt Flex?

TruSculpt Flex can treat eight areas simultaneously, covering the largest treatment area in the body sculpting industry. Due to its smaller hands-free applicators, TruSculpt Flex has more treatment area versatility than any other muscle sculpting machine on the market. Treatment areas include buttocks, abdomen and obliques, upper, inner and outer thighs, calves and upper arms.

How Is TruSculpt Flex Different from Other Muscle Sculpting Treatments?

It’s Faster – Up to eight areas can be treated in a single 15-minute session.
It’s Safer – The unique TruControl™ technology provides safe and consistent results through targeted, selective, and customisable delivery with less energy needed. The lower levels of energy achieve deep, full muscle contractions at high intensity. Making it far superior then any other machine on the market.
It’s EffectveThree treatment mode options are available to customise the results to each patient’s body goals.
Proven Muscle Thickness Increase – Clinical studies have shown an average of 30% increase in muscle mass.
It’s Versatile – The treatments can be personalised for individual fitness levels, body shapes and goals.

Optimal Results With TruSculpt Flex

How Long Does a TruSculpt Flex Treatment Last?

TruSculpt Flex is by far the fastest muscle sculpting machine on the market. Treatments are just 15 minutes. And with no downtime, it means you can easily fit a session in between your normal daily routine.

Does TruSculpt Flex Hurt?

The best thing about non-invasive muscle-sculpting procedures is that they are pain-free. It’s nothing like going in for surgery and then having to stay bed-ridden for weeks after to recover.

As the treatment begins, patients feel a gentle contraction sensation, and as the intensity slowly increases, the muscle contraction intensifies but remains comfortable.

Are There Any Side Effects?

A TruSculpt flex treatment is non-invasive, and there is no downtime. You will be able to resume your normal activities after your TruSculpt flex treatment.

After your session, you may experience some delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) or tenderness, but this is normal. Recover as you would with a normal training session at the gym, so drink plenty of water post-session, consume some protein day and get sufficient rest.

Non-Surgical Body Sculpting Treatments with TruSculpt Flex – Who is it for?

Healthy men and women of all ages can benefit from TruSculpt flex treatments. 

Beyond aesthetics, TruSculpt flex can also be used therapeutically, for example, to help with back pain or recovery from a knee injury or surgery. With TruSculpt flex, I can help patients strengthen their core or the muscles supporting the knee to rebuild strength and allow them to become more physically active.
