Facial Aesthetics - Body Contouring - Advanced Skincare
StimSure is the latest, non-invasive electromagnetic muscle building and toning treatment. The device has a CE marked for muscular atrophy and is the same technology (sold under a different brand) used in the USA which has FDA clearance.
StimSure can be used to strengthen and tighten the abdominal, gluteal and thigh muscles by contracting/stimulating the muscles, delivering up to 24,000 muscle contractions in just 20 to 30 minutes for natural-looking results. StimSure can also be used to treat posture by correcting and strengthening core and back muscles as well as issues such as diastasis recti and incontinence.
What is StimSure used for?
Better abs for form or function
Many men want a six-pack and it is possible but the reality is that to achieve this StimSure cannot do it alone. Proper diet and exercise will be needed but with our help, the time in the gym will be far less.
Best of all though, if you're wanting to improve your posture, move better and improve sport or general physical activity then a stronger core helps with every move we make.
For women, the goal for the abs is more often to treat diastasis recti which around 60% of women experience post-pregnancy.
Firmer more toned behind
As we age we lose muscle tone and an area that many patients notice is their behind. This is noticed particularly post-pregnancy as during this time a woman's body produces relaxin, which helps prepare the uterus and cervix for giving birth. Relaxin is the main culprit for making the bottom sag.
What our patients love about StimSure is that they can not only address their buttocks but the device can also treat incontinence, a common post-pregnancy concern but one which will affect nearly seven in ten women in their life.
Rounded shoulders or alignment issues
Poor posture can be due to weakness of the muscles in the back or simply longstanding alignment issues or due to injury. Often modern life also leads to posture issues as back muscles are engaged less through daily activities.
Weakened muscles in the pelvic floor or sphincter
Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is defined as a sudden unintentional loss of urine during normal day-to-day activities. If you have this problem you may notice leakage if you laugh, cough, sneeze, walk, exercise, or lift something.
In women, these muscles can be weakened during pregnancy by the extra weight and natural hormonal changes. Childbirth can cause more problems especially if delivery is prolonged or the baby is large.
StimSure helps to reengage the muscles used to control urine and for some patients, the results can be seen immediately.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
The StimSure applicators generate an electromagnetic field that stimulates the motor neuron cells of the body’s muscles, causing the muscle to contract as it would during movement or exercise. A prolonged contraction, made by a series of individual twitch contractions back to back, creates a ‘maximal tetanic contraction’ that results in more efficient growth of muscle fibers.
Neural Muscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) has been used for many years in physiotherapy and is used in recovery as well as by elite athletes who seek to gain increases in muscle performance.
StimSure uses 1.0 Tesla per applicator, providing an electromagnetic field that can engage the entire target muscle group. The device is similar to other technologies (including Emsculpt from BTL) but has three key differences:
Fully customisable treatment programmes
The StimSure device allows for fully customisable treatment programmes - this means targeted, bespoke treatment plans which can help treat underlying medical conditions while building, shaping and toning muscles. StimSure has four pre-set programs which are a great way to engage with the device and learn how the patient will respond to the treatment. We have learned from Profession Heiko Van Vliet's (International Rehabilitation and Training NMES Expert & Professor of the University of Lausanne) experience and knowledge shows that rarely what works for one person works for another.
Therefore the ability and the ability to create personalized programs on StimSure means we can develop a bespoke treatment plan which is exactly right for our patients.
40% longer muscle contractions
Building muscle requires a combination of both the number of contractions but also the length of the contraction. the StimSure allows for contractions which are 40% longer.
The frequency (in hertz) enables the muscles to be stimulated in a number of ways and will achieve different results. Depending on the patient, their fitness levels and desired outcomes the hertz can be adjusted to suit these. For longer-term treatment plans the hertz might, for example, be increased to match the improvement in the patient's muscle condition.
How many treatments do I need?
For patients who are in good physical shape and undertake regular exercise, we might suggest a court of 6 to 8 treatments every 4 days. However, every person is unique and in order to achieve your personal goals, a consultation will be required to assess your fitness levels, expectations, lifestyle and how best StimSure can help you to achieve your intended outcomes. Our doctor will design a bespoke programme which will help you to live life with better form and improved function.
