Many celebrities enjoy trying out the latest advancements and technology in the field of aesthetics. In the personal fitness world, actress Drew Barrymore recently announced her endorsement of EMSCULPT®: an innovative treatment that tones the body via electromagnetic pulses.
As the first practice to offer EMSCULPT in the Troy, NY area, I can fully support Barrymore’s fitness choice. This popular procedure is great for strengthening muscles and burning fat – all without the need for full surgery.
Why Drew Loves EMSCULPT
“In order to actually be strong and healthy and exercise, you have to have a strong core, and that was just not in my grasp for the last seven or eight years,” Barrymore explained at a recent press event. “I work a lot, my kids come first, and I was like 10th on the list, but I want to look good in my clothes…” In an interview with Women’s Health, Barrymore called EMSCULPT her “abs secret” for when workouts don’t fit into her schedule.
“I needed something to change my physical abilities so that I could actually start living my life,” Barrymore said.
Whether you’re bouncing back from babies or just want a slimmer stomach, EMSCULPT can help strengthen your core and boost your fitness journey.
How EMSCULPT Works
EMSCULPT is a non-invasive, FDA-approved fat reduction treatment that helps tone muscle and burns fat. The procedure begins with your provider wrapping a paddle-like machine against your core. The machine emits high-intensity electromagnetic pulses that force muscles to contract. The result is similar to doing 20,000 sit-ups in only 30 minutes. Your muscle fibers strengthen and the fat melts away.
Afterward, patients usually feel the soreness expected of an intense workout. Future treatments are broken up into 4 30-minute sessions scheduled 2 to 3 days apart.
Making EMSCULPT Work for You
One of the perks of EMSCULPT is how diverse the treatment options are. The procedure is approved by the FDA to tone the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. It also has the added bonus of helping treat diastasis recti—a condition in which the abdomen muscles weaken, stretch, and form a permanent “pooch” on your stomach. This condition is common for women who have been pregnant or anyone who has experienced significant weight loss. Diets and healthy lifestyle choices often aren’t enough to eliminate this pooch on their own.
While EMSCULPT is not a miracle weight-loss treatment, it is an excellent way to supplement your fitness goals, become stronger, and achieve moderate fat loss in targeted areas. If you’re curious about the results EMSCULPT can produce, browse our before-and-after gallery.
