truBody® FAQs

Have a question? We are here to help.

What is truBody®?

truBody allows you to personalize your ideal body with a revolutionary non-surgical, body-sculpting treatment. Its comfortable, safe, and effective technology is clinically proven to permanently eliminate fat cells in stubborn areas around your abdomen and flanks.

Am I a candidate for truBody?

Because truBody is a customized and tailored treatment to meet individual needs, most adult men and women are a candidate.

How is truBody different from other devices on the market?

truBody treatments utilize the truSculpt ID and the truSculpt Flex technologies. 

The truSculpt ID uses monopoloar RF technology to kill fat through heat. This technology is faster, less painful, delivers more tightening, and has better cellulite reduction than other comparable treatments such as “coolscultping®” and “sculpsure®”.  Six Pads can be used in 15 minutes! Two truSculpt ID pads cover more area than a single large “coolscuplting®” pad.  truSculpt ID pads do not cause bruising, do not need suction and do not cause painful cold nodules. Unlike coolscuplting® the truSculpt ID treatment is not limited by BMI.  The delayed pain, tingling, paradoxical fat hyperplasia, and paresthesia of “coolscuplting®” do not occur with truSculpt ID.


The truSculpt Flex uses multi-directional Stimulation (MDS) MDS is key to maximizing effect by maximizing muscle contraction. This takes advantage of muscle confusion concepts used in weight training.

PREP Mode (twisting muscle)      TONE Mode (Held Contraction)     SCUPLT Mode (fast contraction)


Competitor devices: the “Emscuplt®” and “Cooltone®” use non-specific electromagnetic fields which have unclear effects on other organs and known changes to brain activity.  These devices are not able to fluctuate the nature of contraction or maximize contraction. They are also passing EMF through that entire section of the body.  truScuplt Flex is the ONLY device on the market that has multi directional stimulation and it does NOT use EMF.

How long does a treatment take?

Procedure time depends on the size and number of treatment areas. It typically takes 15 to 30 minutes to treat the abdomen and flanks.

How many treatments will be needed?

Multiple areas can be treated in as little as one 15-minute session. Additional treatments may be required to achieve the personalized results you desire.

What will the treatment feel like?

Your first treatment will start with 15 minutes of fat reduction that is typically described as feeling like a hot stone massage. During this part of the treatment, the temperature of your skin will rise but remain comfortable. Depending on your current fitness level, the last 15-45 minutes of your first treatment and subsequent 15 minute treatments are muscle sculpting.  The muscle sculpting will feel a gentle contraction sensation as the treatment begins with the intensity and muscle contraction slowly increasing over time but remaining comfortable. The muscle sculpting portion of a truBody session is comparable to doing 54,000 sit ups in one treatment!

Is there really no downtime?

truBody treatments are non-invasive, require no recovery time, and allow you to immediately return to normal activities after treatment. After the treatments, the area may be warm and flushed for one hour, and you may notice slight tingling for up to a few hours. In the following days, the treatment area may be sensitive, and you may experience some slight muscle soreness which will resolve within 48-72 hours. 

When will I see results?

Results are visible after just one treatment with maximum results visible after 12 weeks. Discuss your individual goals with our medical team.  We will lay out the best treatment plan to help you achieve the personalized results you desire.

What other areas can be treated with truBody?

truBody fat reduction and skin tightening treatments (truSculpt ID) can be used to target flanks, back/braline, inner thighs and lateral hips/saddle bags, submental chin/neck fat and the abdomen.  Off label sites include biceps, triceps and calves.

 The truBody muscle sculpting treatments (truSculpt Flex) can be used to abdomen, target anterior thighs, posterior thighs and buttocks.

 Please consult with our medical team if you wish to explore these other treatment options on other body areas.  Pricing will vary based on specific areas, the number of treatment sessions and your personal goals/desired results.
