Six pack abs without breaking a sweat! Emsculpt abdomen treatments contracts the muscles the equivalent of doing 20,000 sit-ups. Along with improving muscle tone and burning fat in the abdomen and flanks, Emsculpt can also be used to help treat diastasis recti, a separation of the rectus abdominis (otherwise known as the six-pack muscle). This occurs when the rectus abdominis, the two large vertical banks of muscles that meet in the center of your abdomen, pull apart from the linea alba that runs down the body’s midline. The chances of developing diastasis increase during pregnancy as the muscles stretch to accommodate a growing baby. Traditionally this has only been resolved with surgery, but now Emsculpt offers the first non-surgical treatment of improving this condition.
