A new muscle-stimulation game-changer; achieve up to 54,000 sit-ups in just 15 minutes.
Leading medical aesthetics company, CUTERA, have introduced an Australian-first in body-sculpting solutions with the arrival of truSculpt flex+. A new muscle-building innovation that replicates intensified crunch, squat and twisting actions using unique Multi-Directional Stimulation (MDS) technology, and offers the equivalent of up to 54,000 crunches, in just 15 minutes.
Thanks to the latest technological advancements from CUTERA, the new truSculpt flex+ offers the same results as the highly-acclaimed current model, the truSculpt flex, however, features a higher intensity; cutting the clinical treatment time significantly from 45 minutes to just 15 minutes.
The TGA-approved truSculpt flex+ is an adjustable, non-invasive, personalised muscle-sculpting treatment that can be dialled into patient fitness levels, body shapes and individual goals. It targets up to eight areas that can be treated simultaneously, covering the largest treatment area in the body sculpting industry. Results include the strengthening, toning and firming of the abdominal muscles, glutes and thighs, and can be achieved in as little as four treatments, with clinical research proving on average an increased muscle mass of 30%.
To amplify these remarkable muscle-building results, physicians, surgeons and doctors are advocating for truBody, a 30-minute in-clinic treatment that involves the unique pairing of both the truSculpt flex+ and truSculpt iD, which is designed to reduce fat. truSculpt iD uses radiofrequency to target and heat stubborn fat deposits, with an average of 24% reduction in fat in just one treatment.
Aesthetics aside, truSculpt flex+ boasts overarching health benefits.
For those who can not exercise due to an existing medical condition, or are undergoing post-op rehabilitation, truSculpt flex+ can be used as a substitute for exercise to prevent muscle atrophy and can reduce rehabilitation time after muscle injuries. Clinical studies have also shown truSculpt flex assists the improvement of chronic low back pain and core muscular endurance and strength.
The potential for electrical muscle stimulation in improving muscle function in healthy individuals and athletes is also gaining traction worldwide. However, for a holistic health and wellness journey, the truSculpt flex+ is recommended to be combined together with exercise and a healthy diet to optimise even greater results.
“Muscle wasting and weakness often occurs following reconstructive joint surgery and can prolong post-op rehabilitation. CUTERA research showed a rapid increase in muscle bulk following treatment with truSculpt flex,” says Dr Allan Clarke, Orthopaedic Surgeon, Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
In traditional strength training, the brain signals the nervous system and motor neurons to contract the skeletal muscle voluntarily. In truSculpt flex+, the process bypasses the brain, sending an electrical signal to the muscle through a handpiece optimising muscle workout while minimising discomfort and ensuring safety and efficacy.
Two treatment modes in the same truSculpt flex+ session simulate different physical workouts.
● Tone Mode: Contracts the muscles, holds them to the point of exhaustion and then relaxes them to increase strength and enhance endurance. The technology offers the equivalent of 54,000 crunches.
● Sculpt Mode: Fast, deep, sequential contractions of the muscles to develop new muscle fibres and increase basal metabolic rate (BMR) for building muscle mass and reducing the circumference.
The truBody treatment is not touted as a miracle weight loss cure, but as safe, relaxing in-clinic sessions to help achieve a more toned silhouette. Treatments are best suited to those who are close to their ideal body weight but are after more definition.
“I see these devices being in high demand, especially since the COVID-19 lockdown has meant we have been unable to get to the gym. Everyone is looking for a kickstart now that things are reopening,” adds Sean Arendse, M.D. Cosmetic Physician from Melbourne, Australia. “For optimal health, we should be aiming for our bodies to have low body fat and a high lean muscle mass.”
