Apart from fat elimination machines, there are also several devices for muscle sculpting. Among them truSculpt Flex is a relatively new device that has joined the market for body sculpting. It works by passive muscle stimulation that aims to tone, build and strengthen muscles. This is a great add on treatment after fat has been trimmed from the body.
What sets truSculpt Flex apart is its highly customizable to fit all kinds of body shape as well as fitness level and goals of treatment.
How does this truSculpt Flex technology make the muscles work?
triSculpt Flex technology causes a multi-directional stimulation (MDS) of muscles, a unique method of electrical muscle stimulation to activate and work the muscles. Pulses of electric energy acts on all the muscles in the treatment area, through electrodes placed on the skin. This stimulation mimics the action potential initiated by the nervous system, causing the muscles to contract. These devices have been used for muscle rehabilitation following injury and use has been extended for the improvement of physical appearance by increasing muscle tone and firmness.
The truSculpt flex differs from other devices that use electromagnetic or magnetic stimulation in that it provides equal distribution of electrical current directly into specific and targeted muscles. truSculpt flex delivers 10 to 30 mA of electrical energy to stimulate motor neurons, and different types of torsional contractions can be achieved by changing polarity of the electrodes in real time.
In comparison, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS),
Traditional Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) and High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Field Stimulation (HIFEM) technologies work on the principle of moving an electric conductor over a very large magnetic field placed over one muscle group at a time in order to generate enough electric current to stimulate a muscle group. These devices produce twitch-like responses in the motor neurons, and the amount of energy conducted through the skin is typically limited to below 10 mA to prevent sharp pain and skin injury. These devices tend to be bulky with weaker current generation capacity, have no polarity and only single axis contractions are possible with these devices. There is also the controversial issue of added risk of higher magnetic field radiation exposure with these other technologies.
FAQ's of truSculpt Flex
How long does a treatment take?
Up to eight areas can be treated in one 45-minute session.
What does a treatment feel like?
As the treatment begins, patients feel a gentle contraction sensation and, as the intensity slowly increases, the muscle contraction intensifies but remains comfortable.
Is there really no downtime?
truSculpt flex is non-invasive, requires no recovery time, and patients are able to immediately return to normal activities after the treatment. Post-procedure, patients may notice tingling in the areas treated for up to a few hours and/or slight muscle soreness or tenderness for 24-72 hours.
TruSculpt Flex strengthens, tones and firm muscles. There is an average of 30% increase in muscle mass. As with other muscle-sculpting devices, a series of treatment sessions is needed.
Results are visible in as little as 2 treatments and maximized at 8-12 weeks.
