For my latest Tweak of the Week, I went to the Thérapie Clinic to try EMSCULPT®. This is a muscle-building tweakment which has its roots in physiotherapy treatments used to rebuild athletes’ damaged muscles, and it uses high intensity focused electro magnetic waves of energy to achieve ‘supramaximal’ contractions in your muscles. That means making your muscles contract at seemingly impossible speeds, far faster than your brain could ever command them to do, so you get the equivalent of 20,000 sit-ups in a single half-hour session on your abs (the treatment can also be used to build muscle on the backside, arms, legs…)

What’s it like? What did I make of it? What sort of results might you see? What does it cost? Watch the full video below and find out how you can get a free consultation for Emsculpt or one of the other body-contouring treatments available at a Therapie clinic near you – there are 60 of them around the country so there should be one not too far away.

About Alice Hart-Davis

Alice Hart-Davis is an award-winning beauty journalist and author. For nearly 20 years she has been reporting on the aesthetic cosmetic procedures colloquially known as tweakments, and has trialled countless procedures in order to review them.

Alice has won many awards for her work, though none for services as a cosmetic guinea pig. She attends aesthetics conferences around the world and spends a lot of time catching up with the doctors, surgeons, dentists, nurses and the companies behind the technology in this fast-expanding field, the better to understand the tweakments on offer.

Over the years Alice has seen — and experienced first-hand — plenty of bad treatments, and understands the many problems that beset the aesthetics industry, from the lack of regulation to the rising incidence of body dysmorphia among cosmetic patients and practitioners.

Despite this, she remains an advocate of good, understated cosmetic work — the sort which goes undetected and unremarked, because it doesn’t lead to weird-looking hamster cheeks or frozen foreheads. She is also still enthusiastic about the potential of tweakments for making people look that bit better, which in turn makes them feel better about themselves and better able to get on with the rest of their lives.

She lives in London, a short bicycle ride from Harley Street, with her husband and a lively Jack Russell terrier. Her three young adult children take a dim view of tweakments, but accept that these are something she does for work (and are too kind to use the word, ‘vanity’).
