Trainer’s Perspective on EmSculpt’s Ability to Build Muscle and Get Ripped
“I had the EmSculpt done and it was so EASY! I am not the one to work out so this treatment was perfect for me. I am two weeks out since my last treatment and I am already noticing a difference in my abodmen.”

“Comfortable, Painless. I just finished my 4th Emsculpt treatment and I am blown away with the results. My stomach was relatively flat but even after working out for the last 7 years consistently 4x a week I have never been able to get a 6 pack until now I have an 8 pack and it’s not just when I’m flexing in the right lighting like in the past. I definity would recommend this treatment to anyone looking for Body Sculpting.”

“Getting my first treatment for emsculpt was AWESOME! I was a little nervous about how it would feel but Lauren was very calming. She explained everything about what it feels like down to how it benefits you. I wanted to have a butt lift, so that’s where I chose to have my emsculpt done. It did not hurt at all and after a while you could almost fall asleep, who needs to workout when you can sleep and do emsculpt?”

“Emsculpt is the answer people!! If you want your abs to be toned and tighter and already work on them this is the last machine you will need. I exercise daily and emsculpt has given me that extra toned abdomen I have been looking for.”
– Jill1218 on RealSelf.com
“The Emsculpt procedure experience was painless, effortless and EASY!
The EASE and comfort of laying down while your body is “sculpted” is AMAZING!”

“I tried the Emsculpt electromagnetic muscle stimulation/contraction machine. I was skeptical at first, but it really is pretty intense and worked my abs like never before. My abs felt great, nice and tight, for a few days afterwards. Not extremely sore, but felt like I had an excellent workout. I was actually pretty amazed at the whole procedure.”

“Even though I am only half way through my treatments I am so happy with my results so far! I have had 3 children, with my youngest being 21 months and I finally feel like I’m am getting my body back!!”

Fitness Influencer’s Take on Getting Lean with EmSculpt
“It’s not magic, but it did go a long way to helping me get look (and feel) better….It’s been two months since the procedures and I definitely look like I have a tighter butt and abdomen. I do see less fat and feel like I have more defined buns and stomach. I continue to exercise and to eat right. I do have my cheat days, but the best way to maintain the look of Emsculpt treatments is to keep working at it.”
– user1839871 on Zwivel.com
“I have done both Vanquish and CoolSculpting to get rid of the extra fat on my stomach and have been very happy with the results, however I have never experienced anything like Emsculpt. It was amazing to me how much more toned my abs got than I had been able to accomplish in the gym. I am 51 years old and its a lot harder to tone up than it use to be. I did 4 treatments, (2 treatments a week for 2 weeks in a row). The picture was taken a few days or maybe a week after my 4th treatment. I really want to do more of these and see how good my stomach can get.”

“After my 4 sessions I felt a little hooked and was somewhat sad that my time with the machine was over. However, the doctor told me that in 3-6 months I was welcome to come back for a refresher and to maintain the results that I could never seem to achieve at the gym. About 4 weeks after the last session my husband snuck a peak of me getting out of the shower and said, “hey, you lose weight?” I smiled, and said, “No, I did 80,000 sit-ups at the dermatologist’s office last month in 2 hours…try and beat that!” ”
-AvaMarie on Zwivel.com
“Ever since having my son who is now 7.. I have always struggled with my stomach. I am fit, work out religiously, and eat properly but my stomach always stuck out more which made me look pregnant… After a few sessions, I noticed my stomach didn’t stick out as much as it used to. The inches started to show in my clothes which helped me gain back my confidence. I am so happy because my pre-baby body is back!”
– NYCM on RealSelf.com
“The treatment was extremely positive. The procedure was painless and actually somewhat relaxing. The pulsating of the machine felt as if it were truly pulling on the muscles, without being painful. The results were noticeable quickly with tighter feeling and appearing buttocks. Definitely worth it!”
– Lincon71 on RealSelf.com
“I’ve been in the fitness & nutrition industry for 20 years now and I have tried everything to get my butt to have shape and size like I always have wanted. I have tried every exercise known to man & never have seen results like what I got from this procedure in my life. It was worth every penny I paid and I would do it again in a heartbeat. I have so much more confidence now and just feel good about myself.”

If you still want to make progress on your skin during the summer but are discouraged by having to pause your laser skin resurfacing and other cosmetic treatments until the fall, don’t despair, Reflections offers a variety of options that are safe for skin that is likely to be exposed during the summer months, even if you’ve got that summer golden tan going on right now. These options allow you to still have year-round treatments and with the help of your cosmetic physician at Reflections you can develop a seasonal treatment plan that allows you to stay looking and feeling good all year long.
We talked to Dr. Ellern, a Cosmetic Physician at Reflections about your off-season options for skin rejuvenation.
Derma Pen/ Microneedling
The Dermapen is the microneedling device used here at Reflections that provides a tightening and rejuvenating effect for damaged skin by starting the body’s natural healing response. This is done with tiny medical-grade needles at the base of the device creating controlled “micro-injuries” in the skin. Results can be boosted by adding PRP, for a procedure that’s often referred to as a “Vampire Facial”. During this healing process, the skin will produce new collagen and elastin to repair any damage and continue to improve the skin’s quality over the next few months after receiving treatment. This treatment could be uncomfortable for recently sun-burned skin, so waiting a few days for your skin to calm down before treatment is recommended if you happen to get burned. However, for healthy non-inflamed skin, Dermapen is just as safe and effective, no matter your level of tan, freckle, or other sun-related changes.
If you had been going through laser resurfacing treatments to help manage the scars left behind by severe acne, remove stretch marks, or tighten and tone skin, microneedling with the addition of radiofrequency can be extremely effective for repairing and strengthening damaged skin. RF Microneedling targets the skin’s underlying structure of collagen fibers and reforms any areas that have damage due to acne scarring. Rebuilding the skin’s inner structure allows the layer of the skin, to be smoother and stronger. This treatment, just like regular microneedling, is not recommended for skin that is currently sunburned, but is completely safe and effective on tanned skin.
If your laser skin resurfacing treatments were helping you to stimulate collagen production and smooth out skin, Ultherapy might be the next logical step in treatment for you during the summer months. Ultherapy skin tightening is a non-invasive (surgery-free and needle-free) way to lift and tighten the skin using ultrasound technology to tighten and firm the skin. If your busy this summer with kids, vacation or outdoor hobbies, the best feature about Ultherapy for you might be that there is absolutely no downtime is required. The safe and effective ultrasound technology used allows the doctor to see under the skin and deliver the energy precisely where it’s needed. Ultherapy usually takes only a single treatment and the results are long-lasting and very natural.
Non-Invasive Fat Removal
Looking to switch up your treatment focus for the summer? There are more treatments other than one’s meant for skin rejuvenation available to those with a summer tan; you can focus on getting rid of stubborn fat during these summer months. Whether you decide to cool off with CoolSculpting or keep it hot with SculpSure, Non-invasive body contouring is effective on all skin tones and skin that will be exposed to the sun.
SculpSure is an FDA-Cleared non-invasive fat reduction treatment proven to remove up to 24% of unwanted fat during each 25-minute treatment session. Patients are able to choose from a wide variety of treatment areas, including the abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, calves, and arms. SculpSure uses a powerful warming hyperthermic to heat up the up the deep layers of unwanted fat eventually destroying those fat cells.
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure that reduces fat in targeted areas of your body, using a controlled cooling process called cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting® freezes and kills fat cells which can then be gradually flushed out of the body. full results are seen over the period of a few months and may continue to progress over several months as more fat cells are flushed out. No incisions or anesthetics are necessary for this procedure. This allows patients to quickly return to their everyday activities after treatment with little to no interruption.
EmSculpt is a brand new technology that increases muscle tone and size, while also reducing fat. It’s the perfect booster for abs or butt, for both men and women looking to shred down for summer. This amazing new technology is the first of its kind, using high-powered electromagnetic pulses to contract muscles more deeply and intensely than you can with traditional workouts. Each session is equivalent to roughly 20,000 crunches or squats. Patients will need 2 sessions per week for 2 weeks to see results.
Fight Cellulite and Tighten Loose Skin
Cellulite is one of the most common complaints we hear from women looking to get shore-season-ready. Unfortunately, there are a lot of treatment options that really don’t have that much of an effect. But Exilis is different. This treatment gives great results, fast, and affordably, that last the whole season long!
Exilis Ultra 360
Exilis Ultra offers comfortable, no-downtime skin tightening using both ultrasonic and radiofrequency energy. This treatment feels like a warm stone massage, is very affordable at around $400-650 per session, and creates natural results quickly by tightening and toning the skin.
Preparing for a Change in Treatment
The best thing you can do before a change in season is to plan with your cosmetic physician how you would like to proceed with treatment during the months of the year that may not be conducive to its success. Your physician will be able to work with you to create a plan that not only suits your goals but your lifestyle during all seasons. While all of the treatments above are safe and effective on tanned skin, you should still be careful to not have any treatments performed on newly burned skin or skin that is still recovering from overexposure.
