Muscle Toning with truSculpt Flex in West Des Moines, IA

Nonsurgical body contouring with truSculpt® iD and truSculpt® flex is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes monopolar radiofrequency (RF) and electromagnetic technology to kill fat cells and help tone muscles. Most patients have nonsurgical body contouring done on their thighs, buttocks, flanks, abdomen, and back. Unlike some other treatments, the truSculpt flex technologies are safe and effective for all skin types and have much shorter downtimes. At Iowa Face + Body Med Spa, we offer nonsurgical body contouring to help patients achieve their ideal figures without all the time and discomfort associated with more invasive treatments.

What Does the Treatment Look Like?


For those hoping to further sculpt their abdomen, flanks, buttocks, and thighs, the truSculpt flex could be an appealing option. It involves the placement of handpieces, which can be arranged in a variety of areas in order to achieve the patient's desired results. These handpieces then stimulate the muscles, taking them through three different modes designed for preparation, tone, and sculpting. 


Ideal candidates for truSculpt flex nonsurgical body contouring are those who:

  • Have small to medium pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise
  • Are at or near their ideal stable weight as nonsurgical body contouring is not a substitute for lipo
  • Want to enhance the appearance of muscles
  • Do not have metal implants, a pacemaker, or an internal defibrillator
  • Are not pregnant or expecting to become pregnant


Anesthesia is not required for nonsurgical body contouring since it is a non-surgical procedure. At your initial consultation, you will have agreed upon your treatment areas with our nurse. During your treatment, the truSculpt flex handpieces will be heated and applied to the designated treatment area or areas. They use monopolar RF and multi-directional stimulation technology to target the fat and therapeutically heat it, causing it to break down and die. Additionally, the muscles are stimulated for a more tones appearance. Most patients report that the treatment feels similar to a hot stone massage.


How much does nonsurgical body contouring cost?

Nonsurgical body contouring treatment costs depend on the number and size of the areas being treated. During your initial consultation at Iowa Face + Body Med Spa, we will discuss the results you are aiming for and determine a treatment plan to suit your needs and budget. We will also talk with you about possible alternative payment plans that we accept at our facility.

How does truSculpt work?

The truSculpt technology utilizes radiofrequency energy to heat up and kill targeted fat cells. The energy is applied to your treatment areas in controlled, comfortable pulses of heat. Your body then eventually reabsorbs the destroyed fat cells and eliminates them. The radiofrequency energy also stimulates collagen production, which means your results continue to get better over time.

How soon can I go back to my normal routine?

The nonsurgical body contouring procedure with truSculpt does not involve any incisions, stitches, or anesthesia — so there is virtually zero downtime. You will be able to safely get back to your normal daily routine almost immediately.

How many sessions will I need?

This number is different for every patient. Some may see their ideal results after one session, while others require two or more. At your consultation, our nurse will discuss the number of treatments she estimates you will need. Also, some treatment areas may need more or fewer sessions than other areas you have done.

When can I expect to notice the results?

Patients typically start to notice results in about six weeks, with their optimal results showing around 12 weeks after treatment. It takes time for the destroyed fat to be absorbed and eliminated from the body. Touch-up treatments that are done at 6- or 8-week intervals will have similar timelines for noticeable results.


If you are at or near your ideal stable weight but have stubborn trouble areas, nonsurgical body contouring with truSculpt may be the solution for you. Contact Iowa Face + Body Med Spa to schedule a consultation with our nurse and get one step closer to achieving your ideal figure.
