Preparing for truSculpt flex
To prepare for your truSculpt flex appointment, it is advised that you drink plenty of water on the day of your treatment. You will be advised to not exercise the intended treatment areas for at least 12 hours prior to your appointment. If applicable, you may need to shave the treatment site(s) to ensure the device makes appropriate contact with your skin. Nurse Practitioner Sanvictores will discuss any other specific pre-procedure directions with you during your private consultation.
truSculpt flex Procedure
The truSculpt flex procedure is relatively quick and easy. On the day of your procedure, urse Practitioner Sanvictores will take photos of the targeted treatment site to visually measure treatment progress. Then, the treatment area will be cleansed and marked. This is so anatomical landmarks and treatment areas are easily identifiable. You will lie on the treatment bed in the correct position and she will strategically place several truGels and the handheld device onto the treatment area. truGels are gel pads that protect the skin during the session. The area will be wrapped to secure the truGel pads and handpiece in place during the quick 45 minute treatment.
There is no anesthesia for truSculpt flex as the procedure is painless!
Once the truSculpt flex technology is tuned on, you may feel a slight tingling sensation. As treatment continues, you will feel your treated muscles begin to contract. As the intensity increases, your muscle contraction will increase, building muscle and strength.
truSculpt Modes/ Intensities
truSculpt has 3 treatment modes to help you achieve your fitness and aesthetic goals. Nurse Practitioner Sanvictores will discuss the treatment protocol with you during your consultation so you will be prepared for the intensity of your session.
Prep mode is used in the beginning of sessions one and two. Prep mode gets you acclimated to the treatment and prepares you for the intensity of the next level. During this mode, you should feel slight tingling sensations.
Tone mode is utilized after Prep, making you feel muscle contractions. The contraction is then held to the point of exhaustion and then relaxed. This mode enhances endurance and increases strength.
Sculpt has the highest intensity settings. In Sculpt mode, you will also feel contractions, however they are much deeper and quicker than in Tone mode. This helps increase muscle mass.
Recovering from truSculpt Treatment
There is no downtime with truSculpt flex! You can immediately return to your day following your truSculpt flex appointment. You will be directed to continue drinking water to remain hydrated. After your truSculpt flex session, you may notice frequent urination or bowel stimulation, tingling at the treatment site(s) for a few hours post-procedure, muscle soreness for up to 72 hours post-treatment, muscle contraction, and increased hunger.
Because of an increased metabolic rate caused by truSculpt flex, you may feel hungry more frequently. It is imperative that you do not overeat in order to maintain your results. truSculpt flex treatment is likened to an intense workout. Your muscles may be sore following treatment. You will be directed to not exercise the targeted treatment areas for 48 hours.
truSculpt flex Results
Results will vary between patients. Many patients are able to visualize amazing truSculpt flex results in as little as 2 sessions! After the recommended 4 truSculpt flex sessions, you can expect to see maximum final results 8-12 weeks after your last truSculpt flex treatment session.
Patients have gained enhanced muscle mass, increased strength, and more muscle definition in the treated areas.
If you are ready to see amazing muscle definition in as little as two weeks, contact Zarrabi Plastic Surgery today for a private consultation.
Muscle definition is difficult to visualize if stubborn fat deposits get in the way. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction technology that works through cryolipolysis, or fat freezing. CoolSculpting targets your pinchable fat and freezes it. The fat cells die and are removed from the body naturally, leaving behind flatter, smoother body contours. CoolSculpting paired with truSculpt flex can create an overall chiseled appearance.
Price for truSculpt flex
Your muscle sculpting needs are as unique as you are, so truSculpt flex treatment is customized to your goals. This individualized approach causes the price to vary between patients. Cost is determined by the areas treated and the amount of sessions needed to meet your goals. Dr. Zarrabi’s helpful staff will discuss pricing with you during your one-on-one consultation.
Dr. Zarrabi does not want your body and muscle contouring dreams to be unattainable because of cost. This is why Zarrabi Plastic Surgery offers financing with several partners to make your aesthetic goals a reality. Contact Dr. Zarrabi’s Santa Monica office today to learn more.
