truSculpt Flex Body Sculpting
in Brownwood & Abilene, TX
We all know we need to exercise and eat right for better health and to feel better about our bodies. Walking, going to Zumba classes, spin classes, running, and other regular forms of exercise can get you in shape, but they don’t necessarily help you achieve better muscle tone.
At Creative Image Laser Solutions, we now offer a treatment that can do exactly that — truSculpt flex.
What is truSculpt flex?
truSculpt flex is a non-invasive muscle-sculpting device, cleared by the FDA for the strengthening, firming, and toning of abdominal, buttocks, and thigh muscles. truSculpt flex can improve muscle tone by inducing muscle contractions through the use of electric current.
How does truSculpt flex work?
The concept behind truSculpt flex is to use electrical stimulation to make muscles contract in a similar manner to what they would do during physical exercise. This form of electrical muscle stimulation has been successfully used in rehabilitation for patients due to immobilization or nerve/muscle damage. More recently, athletes have used it to improve muscle function or hasten recovery from injury.
truSculpt flex has three treatment modes and allows treatment of up to eight areas at the same time. The proprietary handpieces in the system consist of eight pairs of pads that adhere to the skin using truGel. With this diversity of application points, we can target specific groups of small and large muscles in a safe and energy-efficient manner.
When the handpieces are strategically placed, the muscles receive direct electrical stimulation through electrodes located in each handpiece. This stimulation causes full muscle contractions similar to those the body uses for physical exercise. But the contractions induced by truSculpt flex are more intense and much more rapid. This builds muscle mass, strength, and tone.
You would think you could easily overwork a muscle with truSculpt flex, but the system has three treatment modes to overcome this potential problem. Through the course of the training session, truSculpt flex increases the current intensity to recruit deeper muscle groups to engage. The system also alters the direction of the current to avoid stimulation of the same muscles. The overall effect is even stimulation of a range of targeted muscles.
The three treatment modes are:
This mode creates twisting motions similar to those experienced during warm-up exercises. It involves stretching of muscles slowly and builds a tolerance to muscle contractions.
This mode is similar to performing squats and involves contracting muscles until the point of exhaustion. This mode mimics strength-training programs and increases strength and endurance.
This mode is similar to performing crunches and involves fast, deep, sequential contractions of the muscles. This mode mimics muscle-building programs involving the development of new muscle fibers.

What are the benefits of truSculpt flex?
Attaining a good level of physical health is not difficult — it simply takes commitment and discipline. Walking every day, combined with some level of strength training, can do the trick. Or your level may be higher, say regular spin classes and outdoor activities such as hiking, coupled with circuit training at the gym.
But sculpting your muscles is harder. It may take more time than you really have available. You’re in good shape, but your body isn’t toned and sculpted, especially in certain areas such as the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.
truSculpt flex can sculpt these areas with results you’ll see and feel in as little as four 45-minute treatment sessions.
Is truSculpt flex cleared by the FDA?
Yes, the FDA has cleared truSculpt flex for the strengthening, firming, and toning of abdominal, buttocks, and thigh muscles.
Are the results I achieve with truSculpt flex permanent?
As with any muscle conditioning, if you return to a sedentary lifestyle your results will slowly return to how your muscles were prior to your truSculpt sessions. But if you choose a combination of exercise and activity, coupled with occasional truSculpt flex sessions, your sculpted muscles should stay that way. It will take some commitment from you moving forward.
What are the risks with truSculpt flex?
These treatments are non-invasive and there isn’t any recovery time. You can get right back to your normal activities immediately after your session. The only after-effects you may feel could be some tingling in the treatment areas for up to a few hours, along with slight muscle soreness for 24-72 hours.
