For those of us who have spent hours doing crunches in the gym, you likely already know that the abdominals are arguably one of the hardest muscle groups to visibly tone. However, with the development of in-office body sculpting treatments, it’s now easier than ever to get more sculpted abs.
Emsculpt Neo, a noninvasive procedure that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology paired with radiofrequency (RF) energy to strengthen muscles and kill fat cells, claims to deliver visible results in just a few 30-minute sessions. In fact, studies have shown that this treatment can produce up to 24,000 muscle contractions in a single treatment, with an average increase of 25 percent in muscle mass and a 30 percent decrease in fat occurring after a full series of treatments.
Not only does this treatment improve the overall definition of the abdomen, it’s also a good option for those who underwent childbirth and have experienced abdominal separation (aka the detachment of the midline abdominal muscles). As a mother of twins looking to tone her post-baby abdominal wall, influencer Persephone of @everydayvogue, can testify to the perks of Emsculpt Neo firsthand.
After seeing other moms use Emsculpt Neo to complement their existing workout regimen (and seeing some pretty impressive results), Persephone decided to give the treatment a try for herself. Unsurprisingly, her overall experience was very positive.
“After one treatment, I saw some results,” she explains in a blog post. “I noticed less bloating and more toning.” Following her second session, she claims to have seen a noticeable difference in the definition of her abs, stating that they started to “make a reappearance.” After session three, Persephone saw the biggest improvement in her body, claiming that her stomach “hadn’t looked so toned ever in my life—even before the twins.”
It’s important to note that this treatment isn’t only for the abs, you can use it on the buttocks, thighs, calves, and arms, says Amparo Penaranda, the owner of Ultrabody Sculpt where Persephone was treated with Emsculpt. Also, individual results will vary depending on the person.
As a bonus, this is also a great treatment for men looking to tone up as well (although, Penaranda reminds us that it can’t be used on mens’ chest muscles). Persephone even admits that she may have bought a few treatments for her husband since she loved her results so much. And considering how positive her review is, it’s not a bad gift idea for others looking for some extra muscle definition, too!
