Despite careful nutritional habits and regular exercise, some areas of the body can be very challenging to firm. Women’s Wellness Institute of Dallas is proud to offer Tone, a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that uses EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) to strengthen, tighten and tone muscles in those “difficult to flatten” places.
How Does Tone Work?
During a Tone treatment, special applicators are placed on the desired area to deliver electromagnetic energy that stimulates involuntary muscle contractions to increase muscle tone and definition.
Tone combines radiofrequency energy, a tissue vacuum, and Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) to tone and strengthen muscles, with multiple applicators enabling simultaneous treatment of varied areas in each treatment. Tone’s patented technology delivers a uniform thermal effect to the deepest layers of the subcutaneous fat to provide the maximum results and tone muscles effectively.
Tone is clinically approved to help tone, define and strengthen areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, hips and upper arms, and it has been proven safe and suitable for all skin types. With Tone, Women’s Wellness Institute of Dallas offers patients the opportunity to tone and shape the body without incisions, downtime or scarring.
Who Is A Good Candidate for Tone?
To be a candidate for Tone, patients should be physically active, have a healthy lifestyle, and follow a low-fat diet. If you are an athlete or someone who has been previously injured, EMS can also be a good form of active muscle exercise to help you build back your strength.
Because Tone is a focused muscle stimulation technique, it’s important that patients who are overweight do not approach EMS as a weight loss replacement. Tone works best to sculpt, define muscle, and strengthen the body, and it will benefit people who are at their most stable weight.
If you are pregnant, have a pacemaker, or have underlying health conditions where electrical currents may complicate your body’s response, this may not be the right treatment for you. For those with epilepsy, a history of muscle spasms, cardiac arrhythmias, or heart disease, this treatment is not recommended.
When Can I See Results?
Tone treatments are delivered in a boutique MedSpa environment, and patients can rest while varied muscle groups are targeted. Treatments are customizable based on comfort level, and most patients will feel muscles contract during treatment in a manner similar to that experienced during a workout. While some patients experience a few hours of warmth and redness in the treatment areas, they can return to daily life immediately. Most patients see results in as few as 4 30-minute sessions over a four-week period.
Are There Any Risks with the Tone Workouts?
EMS treatment through Tone workouts is non-invasive and often low-intensity. Because of this, there aren’t many risks or side effects that can come from this treatment. However, it’s important to note that your first session of EMS may be a shock to patients who are not fully prepared or who are not used to workouts, exercise, or being fully active.
If you are sensitive to movement, headaches, dizziness, or nausea may occur during your workouts. Some itchiness and light sensations may also occur during treatment. If you are recovering from an injury, some muscle pain or spasms may happen as well, but these typically subside the minute treatment is over.
Under the care of Dr. Brady, your EMS treatment will be highly supervised and made to benefit your unique body type and goals. Because of Dr. Brady’s expertise and high-quality care, many of these risks are easily avoided. Additionally, the more patients undergo Tone, the easier each workout will become. To ensure your Tone workouts are complication-free, we always recommend our patients stay hydrated during treatment.
What Can I Do to Make My Results Last Longer?
Although Tone has proven to be hugely beneficial for many patients, ultimately, the results you’ll see from Tone are a product of your own participation. The muscle and definition you can build through your Tone workouts can last up to six months. However, without the proper diet and lifestyle, these results can disappear quickly. To avoid this, do the following:
- Commit to eating a balanced diet. Implementing the right amount of vegetables, carbs, and proteins into your diet will help you see optimal results. The combination of healthy eating along with workouts helps patients achieve their healthiest bodies.
- Give up alcohol. Alcohol has many effects on the body, including bloating, energy levels, and sleeping habits. Finding replacements for drinking, such as green juices or sparkling water, is a great way to keep your body healthy while undergoing EMS treatment without sacrificing drinking in social settings.
- Allow your body time to rest. One of the most important factors about building muscle and toning your body is that in your off-time, your body has time to recuperate its muscles. If you are constantly working out, you deprive your body of rest, which can you put you are risk of injury the next time you work out.
