(BPT) - No matter how many sit-ups you do, you can’t seem to get those six-pack abs, and all of those squats and lunges don’t add up to buns of steel either.
It’s certainly not from lack of trying. You’re on a first-name basis with the entire staff at your gym and you spend more time with your trainer than your spouse.
You are not alone in your frustration. Despite their best efforts, many people can’t achieve the sculpted abs, butt or thighs of their dreams with diet and exercise alone.
Cutera’s truSculpt® flex is the newest innovation in muscle sculpting. Body sculpting is now possible with this energy-based device, which is US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared for strengthening, toning and firming the abs, buttocks and thighs.
The truSculpt® flex Difference
Other available muscle shaping technologies use magnets to stimulate contractions, but truSculpt® flex applies proprietary Multi-Directional Stimulation (MDS) to deliver energy directly to targeted muscles. truSculpt flex delivers three treatment options by replicating intensified crunch, squat and twisting actions.
The Prep Mode creates a twisting motion to warm up, stretch the muscles and slowly build a tolerance to muscle contractions, the Tone Mode contracts the muscles, holds them to the point of exhaustion, and then relaxes them to increase strength and enhance endurance while the Sculpt Mode causes fast, deep, sequential contractions of the muscles to increase muscle mass and basal metabolic rate (BMR).
Other devices only mimic the effects of sit-ups, but there are far more ab muscles that need to be toned to achieve the desired effect — and the same holds for glutes (the muscles that make up the buttocks) and the thighs.
“This is the game changer we have all been waiting for,” says Michael Somenek, MD, a plastic surgeon in Washington, DC, who was a lead investigator for the truSculpt flex clinical trials. “We can target the precise muscles that need to be activated and achieve about a 30 percent increase in muscle mass with truSculpt flex along with a modest reduction in fat thickness1,” he says.
Sculpting isn’t one-size-fits-all, and Flex allows for a personalized approach. “You can treat eight muscle groups simultaneously, covering the largest treatment area in the body sculpting industry,” adds Dr. Mira Kaga of The Kaga Institute in Marlboro Township, NJ.
Several treatment sessions — typically four to six spaced at least two days apart — may be needed to achieve optimal results. There is no downtime after the 45-minute procedure and minimal discomfort during treatment. Most people feel the muscle contraction as they would in a gym. Maximum results are visible within 12 weeks, and maintenance sessions can help maintain the improvements.
“This breakthrough treatment is ideal for men and women who are active, in good health, and are seeking more toned buttocks, abs, or thighs,” Dr. Kaga says. “truSculpt flex is not recommended for people who are significantly overweight or obese. truSculpt flex can also be combined with truSculpt iD to permanently eliminate fat, while sculpting the muscle for a comprehensive and dramatic improvement,” Dr. Kaga adds.
