Cynosure Stimsure is excited to announce the launch of StimSure, a state-of-the-art, non-invasive electromagnetic technology to build and tone muscle. This new addition to Cynosure’s body portfolio joins SculpSure and TempSure, allowing practitioners to offer a complete body sculpting suite.
In terms of its technology, StimSure applicators generate an electromagnetic field that stimulates the motor neuron cells of the body’s muscles, causing a contraction 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. StimSure uses the optimal Tesla per applicator, providing an electromagnetic field that can engage the entire target muscle group, leading to visible results in fewer treatments.
There’s no down time post-treatment, and for best results, six to eight treatments are recommended over a period of 4 weeks. The most effective results are usually seen within 3-4 weeks after a full treatment plan has been completed. It should be noted that this treatment is not intended for weight loss, but for those who wish to build and define their muscles to complement their fitness journey.
This month, SPA+CLINIC was lucky enough to try this new technology out firsthand, across four ab and buttock sessions. We found it to be an extremely accessible, hassle free (run in and out!) treatment with the added bonus of being virtually pain free. It consists of two cycles – the first one akin to somewhat strange, intense contractions that feel like you are working out at full intensity, and the second cycle subsides to a mild tapping sensation – a welcome relief after the first, and relatively relaxing. Post treatment looks and feels tighter and more toned in the treated areas. We look forward to those results improving over the next few weeks.
