    Everything You Need to Know about truSculpt Flex

    Posted on December 8, 2023
    by Beacon Derm

    A firm and toned body in all the right places is a top priority for many. Achieving this perfectly toned and sculpted body is now easier than ever, thanks to advancing aesthetics technologies, particularly body sculpting.

    truSculpt® flex is touted as one of the best non-invasive muscle sculpting technologies available today. truSculpt® flex works by strengthening and firming the muscles in the abdominal, glutes, and thigh areas with small electric currents, replicating intense gym workouts that can be personalized to anyone’s fitness level and unique needs.

    Our Experience with truSculpt® flex

    At Beacon Dermatology, all procedures are overseen by board-certified dermatologists and an experienced team of medical professionals with extensive training in truSculpt® flex. Cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Andrei Metelitsa has done thorough research with the truSculpt® flex devices, choosing this procedure over others thanks to clinical and scientific evidence of its efficacy. Beacon Dermatology is a frequent and reliable provider of truSculpt® flex.

    What Is truSculpt® flex?

    FDA-cleared and non-invasive, truSculpt® flex uses Multi-Directional Stimulation (MDS) technology designed to target specific muscle groups. Electrical pulses are delivered to the muscles, inducing muscle contractions more intense than any physical exercise.

    By customizing the intensity of these electrical pulses, truSculpt® flex can be tailored to individual fitness levels and personal goals. This is a game changer in the world of non-surgical sculpting, a safe and comfortable technology proven to increase muscle mass at an average of 30%.

    One 45-minute session of truSculpt® flex can offer the equivalent of 54,000 crunches without ever having to step into a gym. While other EMS treatments can cause muscle damage or fatigue, truSculpt® flex uses multi-directional stimulation and can offer three treatment modes and varying intensities. By using three unique frequencies that stimulate the muscles differently, true customization is possible with better results.

    Creating an effect similar to how you would use your muscles in a normal workout, like twists, crunches and squats, these three modes can mimic a warm-up session, an intense muscle training workout and a deep, fast sculpt mode where new muscle fibers are created, increasing mass.

    Significant results can be achieved in just a few sessions of truSculpt® flex, lasting for several months.

    Benefits of truSculpt® flex

    With safer, faster, and more personalized results, truSculpt® flex offers rapid muscle sculpting with minimal to no downtime.

    Fat reduction and muscle toning in one treatment

    By increasing muscle tone and mass, truSculpt® flex contours and improves the body's shape and makes the skin appear tighter for a more sculpted look. While the focus is on muscle conditioning more than fat reduction, the result is a trimmer, more toned appearance.

    Non-invasive nature and minimal downtime

    Because truSculpt® flex is a non-invasive procedure, no recovery time is needed. While some people may feel a slight muscle tenderness for up to 72 hours after treatment, everyone can return to normal activities after the treatment session.

    Customizable treatment areas

    Direct muscle stimulation can target selected muscles with multiple types of muscle contractions to achieve your personal goals. If your arms and thighs are the problem spots, you can work on those directly. You can stimulate eight muscle groups in one 45-minute session.

    Suitable for a wide range of body types

    Because of its versatility and ability to customize treatments to individual fitness levels and goals, truSculpt® flex is an excellent option for all body types.

    Enhanced confidence and self-esteem

    By toning and sculpting specific areas, anyone experiencing areas of stubborn fat or poor muscle tone can now achieve their ideal body shape. In just a few sessions, you can feel more comfortable and confident than ever before.

    Ideal Candidates

    Most healthy men and women are ideal candidates for truSculpt® flex treatment. You will need to discuss your medical history with us at Beacon Dermatology before treatment to check if you are eligible for this procedure.

    People Who Can Benefit the Most from truSculpt® flex Are:

    • Anyone at their ideal weight but wanting to tone or shape specific areas on their body.
    • Anyone wishing to enhance existing muscle mass.
    • Anyone unable to exercise but still wants to achieve a toned look.
    • Anyone with areas of stubborn, unwanted fat, or low muscle tone.
    • Anyone wanting to try a non-invasive body sculpting treatment.

    There are some people for whom truSculpt® flex is not suitable. Patients with pacemakers, defibrillators, or any implanted medical device are not eligible for treatment. People with epilepsy are advised not to seek truSculpt® flex treatment. Treatment is also not suitable for anyone currently pregnant.

    The truSculpt® flex Treatment Process

    truSculpt® flex is a non-invasive treatment done in 45-minute sessions. Treatment is fast and effective with minimal discomfort or downtime.


    Before starting truSculpt® flex treatment, you will need to book a consultation with one of our dermatologists or trained treatment specialists. This consultation is vital to discuss your medical history and assess whether there are any reasons you may not be able to receive treatment. In this session, you will also discuss your treatment goals to create a personalized treatment plan.

    Before the Treatment

    In preparation for your truSculpt® flex treatment, stay hydrated and drink plenty of water on the day of your appointment. Consuming alcohol, caffeine, and fatty foods before your appointment is not advised. It is important to not exercise your targeted muscle groups at least 12 hours before your appointment.

    Any body piercings around your treatment target areas should be removed before the session. It is also advised to shave any body hair from these areas too. Remember to alert your dermatologist to any changes in health or medication since your initial consultation.

    The Treatment Process

    After your initial consultation, you will have a treatment plan in hand. This may be anything from 4 and 8 initial treatments, with each session anything between 2 and 6 days apart.

    Each truSculpt® flex treatment includes a short preparation time followed by a 45-minute session. The device is placed on your previously discussed target areas, and electrical pulses are delivered directly to these areas, activating the muscles.

    Muscle contractions during treatment are like what happens when you work out and treatment is comfortable and pain-free. Each session follows 3 modes, working your muscles in a similar way to different gym workouts.

    • Prep mode creates a twisting motion that helps warm up and stretch the muscles, building up your tolerance to the muscle contractions.
    • Tone mode simulates a squat, contracting the muscles, holding the contraction before relaxing it. This increases strength and helps build endurance.
    • Sculpt mode includes fast, deep muscle contractions like when performing crunches. This helps to increase your basal metabolic rate, burning fat while building muscle mass.

    Post-Treatment Care

    To ensure optimum recovery after your session, it is recommended that you continue to keep well-hydrated. You can expect to see slimming in the treated areas up to 48 hours after your session.

    Although there is minimal downtime expected after your session, there are a few side effects to look out for:

    • You may experience frequent urination and/or bowel stimulation.
    • You may feel a tingling in the areas treated for up to a few hours after your session.
    • You may experience muscle tenderness or soreness for 24 to 72 hours after your treatment.
    • You may experience random muscle contractions after treatment.
    • Treatment can increase the metabolic rate, which may cause you to feel hungrier than usual. Take care not to overeat.

    See the truSculpt® flex Results

    You can achieve remarkable results from just a few short truSculpt® flex sessions. These results include visible improvement to your muscle tone and can be seen after just 2 sessions, with final results visible around 8 to 12 weeks after your final session. If you follow a healthy lifestyle, these results can last several months.

    Although results can be seen in as few as four sessions, you may want to book additional sessions to get to your personalized goals. As a rule of thumb, the fitter you are, the less treatments are needed.

    Are There Any Risks?

    truSculpt® flex is a non-surgical procedure that is safe and effective. Some mild discomfort or soreness may occur, but these usually disappear after a few days.

    Other potential additional side effects are:

    • Skin irritation or hypersensitivity to the electrical conductive medium.
    • Allergic skin reaction where the gel pads are placed.
    • Increased heart rate.
    • Tingling or numbness.
    • Moderate discomfort during treatment and muscle soreness for a few hours after treatment.
    • Bruising may occur on the areas targeted.

    On rare occasions, people have reported burns beneath the electrodes, scaling, scabbing, or blistering of the skin, skin color changes and scarring.

    truSculpt® flex treatment costs will depend on your personal goals. At Beacon Dermatology, we have created various treatment packages to fit your budget and goals.

    How Does truSculpt® flex Compare?

    While other EMS treatments targeting the same muscle groups may cause fatigue and even some muscle damage, truSculpt® flex’s unique multidirectional stimulation and use of three modes create more noticeable muscle definition and an increase of muscle mass by over 30%, with zero downtime. Compared to fat-freezing treatments like CoolSculpting, results are faster, noticeable after only a few treatments.

    Because treatment is completely non-invasive, compared to surgical options, truSculpt® flex is a safer, easier choice with targeted results. One of the biggest advantages truSculpt® flex has over other treatments is that treatment can be completely customized to different fitness levels, body shapes and personal goals.
