Emsculpt® non-invasive muscle toning is the perfect self-care gift. Here’s why!
Pregnancy can significantly change a woman’s belly. We know because we’ve been there and done that. While some women seem to bounce back, the majority of us are left with the telltale marks of pregnancy for a lifetime. We know the signs all too well: weakened, stretched out abdominal muscles, sagging skin and stretch marks.
For years, the only long-lasting solution for improving a post-partum tummy has been a surgical procedure called the tummy tuck. Today, however, here at Skin Care Institute, we are thrilled to be able to offer a non-invasive and no-downtime solution for toning and strengthening the abdomen: Emsculpt®, the world’s first FDA-approved non-invasive muscle toning treatment.
The way we see it, Emsculpt is a major aesthetic breakthrough for women, who for centuries have quietly endured the physical effects of giving birth without being offered accessible restorative solutions. Women deserve to repair and restore their bodies; they deserve solutions that fit their busy lifestyles! With Emsculpt, women finally have a clinically proven tool to help correct abdominal weakness and laxity without any downtime, and we are proud to be able to provide such cutting-edge and consumer-friendly technology here at Skin Care Institute!
How Emsculpt works
Emsculpt uses non-invasive high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate thousands of muscle contractions in the abdomen — and that’s just during one session. Think about how many crunches you can do during a typical workout; can you contract your muscles thousands of times? We didn’t think so! That’s the incredible muscle toning power of Emsculpt. As your abdominal muscles contract, they are being stimulated to strengthen and firm up, revealing more defined, trimmer and slimmer contours without any invasive measures or downtime. It’s truly that easy! Similar to most treatments, a series of Emsculpt treatments reveals optimal results. We typically start with a series of four and tailor your treatments to your body’s exact needs and goals.
Because we are passionate about providing you with proven, clinically based treatments and the highest level of results, we’re excited to share a recent study on Emsculpt. The study analyzed Emculpt’s ability to remodel abdominal muscles in women after they’d given birth. The study found that HIFEM treatments “appeared to reduce the fat layer and width of abdominal separation, while increasing the thickness of abdominal muscle in postpartum women. The observed results at one month post-procedure were improved at three months post-procedure and remained stable at the six-month follow-up visit.”
Future studies are needed, but we are encouraged by these findings because they confirm what we are witnessing here as providers of Emsculpt. We see the benefits of this treatment among our patients every day!
