Emsculpt is an extraordinary new technology for body shaping, which promises to build muscle and reduce fat at the same time. How could I resist the chance to try it out at the Dr Rita Rakus Clinic in Knightsbridge?
This machine, from BTL Aesthetic, uses high-intensity focussed electromagnetic energy to make the abdominal muscles contract – 20,000 times.
These supra-maximal contractions should be able to give you a six-pack within six sessions, and it is as popular with super-fit personal trainers as it is with couch potatoes.
What’s it like? Quite intense! Watch the video to see what I mean. Also, it made me helpless with laughter. I don’t know why, but it just did.
