Can EMSCULPT NEO® Treatment Help Diminish Diastasis Recti?

By: Michael Caglia, MD, FAAD


Are you struggling with diastasis recti, the common condition that causes separation of the abdominal muscles, leaving you with a protruding belly and weakened core muscles? If so, there's good news for you. Basin Dermatology & Cosmetic Center in Midland, TX, under the direction of Dr. Michael Caglia, offers EMSCULPT NEO treatment as an effective solution for diastasis recti. Let's explore how this groundbreaking procedure can help diminish diastasis recti and restore your core strength.

What causes diastasis recti?

Diastasis recti occurs when the connective tissue in the abdomen becomes stretched and weakened, resulting in a gap between the ab muscles at the vertical midline. This separation is most often experienced by women after pregnancy or individuals who have undergone rapid weight gain or loss.

Will diastasis recti correct itself?

In the majority of cases, diastasis recti does not correct itself. Even with consistent exercise, many patients find it challenging or even impossible to bring the ab muscles back to their original position and strength. In fact, some at-home diastasis recti exercises can actually exacerbate the problem. With EMSCULPT NEO treatment, however, many patients have been able to restore core strength and reduce the stubborn belly pooch associated with diastasis recti.

How does EMSCULPT NEO treatment work?

EMSCULPT NEO is a noninvasive treatment that utilizes high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to induce powerful muscle contractions. These contractions are far more intense than those achieved through regular exercise, making EMSCULPT NEO a more efficient solution for diastasis recti.

During an EMSCULPT NEO session at Basin Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, a specialized device is placed on the targeted area of the abdomen. The device delivers electromagnetic energy, triggering involuntary muscle contractions. These contractions engage the weakened abdominal muscles, helping them strengthen and tighten over time.

Can EMSCULPT NEO treatment benefit diastasis recti patients?

In some cases, yes. EMSCULPT NEO treatment offers several potential benefits for individuals with diastasis recti, some of the most compelling of which include:

  • Strengthening weakened ab muscles: The high-intensity muscle contractions induced by EMSCULPT NEO can effectively strengthen the weakened abdominal muscles, reducing the separation and improving core strength.
  • Noninvasive and convenient: Unlike surgical alternatives, EMSCULPT NEO is a noninvasive treatment that requires no incisions or anesthesia. Each session typically lasts around 30 minutes, allowing for easy integration into a busy schedule.
  • Minimal side effects: EMSCULPT NEO is generally well-tolerated with minimal side effects. Some patients may experience temporary muscle soreness, similar to that felt after an intense workout.
