More and more people are turning to non-invasive cosmetic procedures to contour their bodies as opposed to expensive and painful cosmetic surgeries.

You can find personalized, non-surgical treatments to address whatever area of your body that you want to improve. 

Best of all there’s no downtime with these types of treatments, so you don’t have to worry about missing out on weeks of work while you recover.

truSculpt fleX and truSculpt iD are two great options for increasing your muscle mass and getting rid of stubborn pockets of fat. With the truSculpt line of treatments, you can achieve a thinner and more toned appearance in no time. 

This guide will go over the differences between truSculpt iD vs. truSculpt fleX.

Read on to learn more about the benefits of each one, so you can make an informed decision on which treatment is right for you. 

What Is TruSculpt iD?

truSculpt iD is a non-surgical body sculpting treatment that destroys fat in your body through the use of monopolar radiofrequency (RF) energy. 

It safely penetrates deep below the skin, all the way down to the subcutaneous layers of fat, destroying the fat cells at their source. 

It’s commonly used to treat stubborn pockets of fat in the following areas:

  • Upper arms
  • Under the chin
  • Love handles
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs

The truSculpt iD heats up the targeted fat pockets with RF energy until they reach a state of lipolysis, which essentially means until they are irreversibly destroyed. After 15-minutes per body area the treatment is complete.

Over the next 12 weeks, your body will flush out these dead fat cells through your body’s natural drainage system.

Apart from being faster and safer than its competitors, the truSculpt iD also has the added benefit of tightening the skin around the targeted areas.

Oftentimes a reduction in fat through non-invasive body contouring treatments will lead to excess skin, but with the truSculpt iD that’s no longer a concern. 

Furthermore, the truSculpt iD can also visibly improve the appearance of mild cellulite

Does TruSculpt iD Really Work?

truSculpt iD is one of the most effective fat reduction treatments available.

Studies have shown that just one session removes on average 24% of the fat under the treatment area.

The treatment is also 100% clinically proven and FDA-Approved to remove stubborn pockets of fat. 

Even though truSculpt iD works very well, the results will take at least 6 weeks to show, and most people will need to wait up to 12 weeks to see peak results.

There are many truSculpt iD Before & Afters you can look through to gauge how long you can expect to wait for results to appear.

With invasive procedures the results are almost immediate, however there’s a lot more risk of side effects, more downtime, and they cost a lot more money.

Is TruSculpt iD Permanent?

truSculpt iD results are permanent as the treatment itself causes fat cell apoptosis, which is programmed cell death. Because these fat cells are destroyed and removed from the body, results are permanent. 

If, after your treatment, you start eating more fast food, doing less cardio, and drinking more soda your results are not going to be as visible as they can be on a balanced, healthy diet. Although, you likely will see that your treatment area is still more contoured than other parts of the body.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will ensure you see the benefits of truSculpt iD for years to come. 

It is always recommended that patients improve both their eating habits and exercise frequency after the truSculpt iD so they can experience the best results possible.

What Is the Cost of TruSculpt iD?

The price for truSculpt iD depends on each individual person’s needs. 

If you want to target more areas per treatment and do multiple sessions, that will likely reduce the overall price, especially when paid upfront. 

It’s always best to talk with a qualified medical spa to discuss your needs and your goals.

What Are the Benefits of TruSculpt iD?

When you get a truSculpt iD treatment, you can resume your normal activities immediately. 

The treatment is also virtually pain-free. You may experience some warmth in the areas that are being treated, this sensation has been compared to that of a very hot stone massage. 

It’s specifically designed to safely and evenly distribute higher temperatures to your body for longer periods of time without causing you any discomfort. 

If you’re struggling to rid your body of stubborn areas of fat, truSculpt iD body contouring may be the right treatment for you. It helps with fat reduction in specific areas of the body without the hassle and recovery time of traditional surgical options. 

What Is TruSculpt FleX?

If you’re looking to increase your body’s muscle mass, you should consider the truSculpt iD’s sister device, the truSculpt fleX. This muscle sculpting procedure can increase your muscle thickness and mass by upwards of 30% through electrical muscle stimulation. With the ability to treat two treatment areas at one, FleX is an industry leader.

If you are treating your abdomen you’ll experience the results equivalent to 54,000 manual sit-ups per 45-minute session. 

You can target almost all muscle groups with this treatment that can also be personalized and tailored to your specific goals, shape, and fitness level. 

The results you get from one session of truSculpt fleX muscle sculpting could take you three months or more to achieve at the gym.
For the best results pairing the fleX with your existing workout routine is ideal.

How Much Does TruSculpt FleX Cost?

FleX prices can vary depending on the number of treatments needed and total treatment areas. If you buy multiple sessions up front or sign up for a monthly membership program those prices can drop in cost. With a consultation your provider can determine a price that matches your treatment goal.

What Does TruSculpt FleX Do?

When you receive a truSculpt fleX treatment, a hands-free handpiece is used to send low-energy and painless bioelectric pulses into your muscle fibers. It essentially replicates and mimics the muscle contractions and stimulation experienced at the gym during manual exercise.

With muscle sculpting treatments there is no strain on ligaments, bones or joints meaning that the body doesn’t need to produce the same level of energy to reach muscle hypertrophy (the scientific word for muscle growth 💪). 

The targeted muscles will be able to endure more strenuous contraction and stimulation when compared to manual exercise. This also means there is much less lactic acid build up and as a result no downtime or significant soreness after the treatment. 

In many ways the truSculpt fleX bypasses the body’s natural function, thus eliminating the related side effects while also achieving better results in a time-effective manner. 

There are three unique treatment modes, each providing a different treatment type that prevents muscle memory thus allowing for more muscle growth. Treatment plans will include a series of 4-6 treatments with a combination of the three treatment modes that will vary from patient to patient. 

Up to 2 areas can be treated in a single session and results can be sustained for months. 

How Long Does truSculpt fleX Last?

Like the truSculpt iD the truSculpt fleX is recommended  to be paired with a healthy diet and regular exercise

To maintain your strength and muscle mass, you always need to consistently follow your exercise routines. 

Depending on your lifestyle and workout regimen, you may require additional monthly or bi-monthly maintenance sessions to maintain your truSculpt fleX results.

TruSculpt iD or TruSculpt FleX: Which Do You Choose?

truSculpt fleX isn’t designed for fat loss and skin tightening, like the truSculpt iD is. 

The fleX is designed to specifically enhance muscles and to tone them in line with your fitness level, shape and goals.

If you have excess pockets of fat on your body, you’ll want to start with a truSculpt iD treatment. This will eliminate the stubborn areas of fat first.

After that, if you still want to tone and tighten those areas, talk with your local med spa about following it up with a group of truSculpt fleX treatments. They can customize your treatment plan based on your fitness goals.  

Most people will benefit from combining the truSculpt iD with the truSculpt fleX.

First remove those stubborn pockets of fat, tighten the surrounding skin and then pack on some muscle to complete your truBody transformation.
