Hey moms, I know you want to get back that pre-mom body, but the truth is, you are a mom on the go and let’s face it, no one really has the time to be in the gym all the time. You don’t have to go under the knife either! Dr. Jennifer Levine is proud to introduce to the moms of New York the top three non-surgical body treatments Emsculpt, Emtone and Emsella—all designed for the busy people of New York.
was created to improve abdominal tone, strengthen the abdominal muscles and to develop firmer abdomen muscles. What sets Emsculpt apart from other sculpting treatments is that it is the very first to burn fat and build muscle at the same time. Emsculpt uses high intensity electromagnetic therapy to produce rapid, targeted contractions, which triggers a response to burn fat and build muscle. This response to the high intensity contractions is exactly what a high intensity exercise exercise would produce—which is a rebuilding of tissue and muscle fibers that are firmer and stronger, giving you a more sculpted look. Emsculpt can be used to help moms look more fit and sculpted in the stomach, glutes and thigh areas.
It may seem impossible to lose the mommy tummy and gain muscle with no pain or no exercise, but that is exactly what Emsculpt does. There are no side effects as this treatment is completely non-surgical. You may however feel a bit of soreness similar to the aftermath of an intense workout, but that usually wears off in a few hours. With Emsculpt you won’t have to worry about any risks or side effects such as swelling or bruises, as this is a 100% non-invasive procedure. As soon as you’re done with your treatment, you can resume your normal daily routine. After just one treatment, there is a noticeable difference in muscle tone and fat reduction and after the full treatment package, the results will astonish you. Treatment sessions are only 30 minutes in length, and 3-4 treatments is equivalent to 6-12 months of diet and exercise. You can look better and feel stronger without invasive surgery or recovery time.
Emtone is the ideal treatment for the non-invasive reduction of soft or hard cellulite and overall improvement of skin appearance. Cellulite is the dimpled-looking skin that commonly occurs in the thigh region and makes us think twice before putting on a bikini or short shorts. It forms when fatty tissue deep in the skin pushes up against connective tissue. What makes Emtone so revolutionary is the combination of technologies, allowing one machine to treat all five causes of cellulite, including deteriorating elastin and collagen fibers, enlarged fat chambers, poor blood flow, fluid and metabolic waste retention.
Emtone emits acoustic waves that disrupt and stimulate the skin, simultaneously using thermal and mechanical energy in addition to radiofrequency and targeted pressure, enabling it to reach depths that no other treatment has previously been able to. The thermal energy warms the skin to approximately 108-110 degrees Fahrenheit. At this temperature, collagen undergoes structural changes. Emtone devices also emit acoustic waves that disrupt and stimulate the skin, leading to improved circulation. The result is improved skin elasticity, reduction of fat cells as well as improvement in circulation which in turn reduces the appearance of cellulite.
For most of us, the pelvic floor is something we don’t think of very often… until it starts to fail us. When the pelvic floor starts to age due to estrogen deficiency or is stretched to its limits during pregnancy, this can cause incontinence. Urinary incontinence is a major side effect of a weakened pelvic floor after pregnancy. This can show up as leaking during exercise or even when we sneeze or cough. Truth is, it’s uncomfortable and can feel very embarrassing. Luckily, the Emsella treatment is available and works to strengthen the pelvic muscles to prevent those embarrassing moments. Emsella works by sending electromagnetic energy to deliver thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions in a single session. These contractions re-educate the muscles of incontinent patients, which leads to stronger pelvic floor muscles and therefore, no more leaks and accidents.
One round of Emsella is the equivalent of 1200 kegel exercises and all you have to do is sit on the Emsella chair (fully clothed), relax and let the machine do the work. It is totally pain-free, you will feel a little tingle and when it’s done you can go about your day as before. A typical treatment takes about 30 minutes, and you will need about 6 sessions, scheduled twice a week. You may observe improvement after a single session. The results will typically continue to improve over the next few weeks.
Dr. Jennifer Levine is one of only a few surgeons who are double-board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. She and her team in New York strive to bring the most innovative and safe treatments, most of which are perfect for the busy New Yorker mom.
