The semaglutide craze first came to light in 2022 and had many from A-list celebrities to TikTok influencers rushing to hop on the weight loss trend. But with rapid weight loss, there is no shortage of side effects like “Ozempic butt”, a decrease of volume, fat loss in the buttocks, and loose skin on the backside.1 Unfortunately, drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy® can’t slim down specific areas.

Body sculpting devices like truBody® make a great option for those who are trying to combat side effects like “Ozempic butt”. This innovative, award-winning treatment utilizes the truFlexTM treatment to firm and gain muscle mass. In just one 15-minute session, truFlex delivers the equivalent of 20,000 squats or 54,000 crunches on the abs, to strengthen and tone multiple and specific muscle groups.2,3
