These are all commonly used terms to describe a known as Diastasis Recti, a condition where the abdominal muscles separate so much that the stomach protrudes.
Diastasis Recti is very common, affecting some 60% of postpartum women. Often under-diagnosed, the treatment for diastasis recti involves pelvic floor excercises, abdominal crunches and diaphramatic breathing are often recommended.
Surgical options (tummy tuck) for Diastasis Recti is a serious surgery with a lengthy recovery.
Fortunately, a new treatment for improving core strength is now available with the EMSCULPT® machine.
The EMSCULPT treatment uses powerful ElectroMagnetic energy to stimulate muscle contractions. These contractions work to pull together the separated muscles like a girdle or corsette effect.
The Emsculpt treatment is 100% non-surgical and has zero downtime. Clinical studies document significant improvement of Diastasis Recti in just 4 treatments over 2 weeks.
EMSCULPT sends HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) energy deep below the surface of the skin to cause supramaximal muscle contractions. When exposed to these extreme contractions, muscle tissue begins to remodel, building muscle from deep below. EMSCULPT results in both hypertrophy, an increase in the volume of muscle, and hyperplasia, increase in the number of muscle fibers. On the surface, these changes appear as toned, sculpted abs and buttocks.
EMSCULPT is used to tone and strengthen the stomach and lift and firm the buttocks by building the abdominal and gluteal muscles – two of the hardest areas to affect through diet and exercise alone!
You begin to feel tangible results right after the treatment. Positive results are usually reported two to four weeks after the last session and continue to improve for several weeks following the treatments.
An EMSCULPT series begins with four treatments, spaced a few days apart.
If you maintain a healthy weight, your fat reduction from EMSCULPT will be permanent. If you continue to exercise, the muscle development you receive from EMSCULPT can last six months to a year. A touch-up treatment for maintenance is recommended every six months to a year.
Patients report that an EMSCULPT treatment feels like an intense workout. After treatment, you may be sore like you took a Pilates class or did a lot of squats.
There is no downtime following this non-invasive treatment.
EMSCULPT’s non-invasive muscle toning and fat reduction have been shown to be safe and effective on any body type. It offers an effective solution for men and women looking to tighten and tone.
