Afternoons spent poolside and daily strolls along the beach make it hard to complain about summer days in Florida. And you can count on plenty of skin-baring fashions to keep you cool in the tropical heat.
Unfortunately, that means there’s nowhere to hide those pockets of fat or flabby muscles that can spoil your summertime joy even if you’re hitting your ideal weight on the scale.
Gerard Acloque, Jr., MD, founder of Florida Concierge Medicine & Wellness in Hollywood, Florida, has a solution. Our practice offers nonsurgical body contouring and muscle sculpting with truSculpt® iD and truSculpt® fleX. Both meet rigorous standards for effectiveness and patient satisfaction.
Get ready for summer now with nonsurgical body contouring, and you won’t need a single incision or grueling gym session to accomplish your goal.
Our nonsurgical body contouring (truSculpt iD) uses radiofrequency energy and heat to reduce fat via lipolysis in targeted areas.
For optimal success, Dr. Acloque may also recommend nonsurgical contouring treatments (truSculpt fleX) that induce contractions to tone and strengthen muscles without exercise.
Both systems offer excellent results without the lengthy recovery required for invasive therapies such as liposuction, tummy tucks, and other surgical contouring procedures.
However, because achieving optimal results can take multiple sessions (usually four to start) and several weeks, Dr. Acloque recommends that you start building your summer body now.
The truSculpt iD system uses radiofrequency energy to heat fat cells in the subcutaneous fat layer just below the skin. The heat destroys the cells, and your body’s lymphatic system flushes the cellular debris away.
Benefits of truSculpt iD include up to 24% fat reduction in the targeted area after one treatment. Areas commonly treated include the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. In addition, multiple applicators make it possible to treat several sites simultaneously.
The heat generated during a session is often described as what you’d expect with a hot-stone massage. As a result, mild redness that generally fades within minutes may occur in the treatment areas. Built-in safety features include sensors that prevent overheating the skin surface.
Otherwise, the sessions are painless, and you can return to your daily routine immediately afterward.
For decades, physicians have used electrical stimulation as an exercise substitute to prevent muscle wasting and loss (atrophy) in individuals undergoing physical rehab due to disease, injury, or paralysis.
FDA-cleared truSculpt fleX uses the same concept to deliver mild electrical currents to targeted muscle fibers, inducing full muscle contractions that simulate exercise. However, the speed at which the device stimulates contractions results in a highly intense workout, effectively increasing muscle mass, strength, and tone in the abdomen, obliques, buttocks, and thighs.
Delivered painlessly via electrodes attached to the skin, the current adjusts to fit your current fitness level and goals. Sessions include warm-up, toning, and sculpting modes, replicating twists, squats, and crunches.
You may notice the same muscle fatigue and soreness you’d expect after a challenging workout, but the treatments are noninvasive and otherwise painless. In addition, because it builds muscle mass, truSculpt fleX also helps your metabolism with fat burning.
