Love Island 2019 contestant Anna Vakili has revealed that she’s been having the EmSculpt treatment in a bid to lift her butt for a peachier look.
Taking to Instagram, the 31 year old posted a snap of her impressive results achieved by the Este Medical Group, which has UK outposts in London, Leeds, Manchester and more.
"Whatever you do to feel confident in your skin, stay safe," Anna wrote in the post's caption. "We have all seen horror stories about dangerous 'shortcuts' on unlicensed websites that claim all kinds of false benefits from better skin to a bigger [butt].
"This is why I wanted to find a clinic that I could share happily with you guys who can help CELEBRATE your curves,” she added. On that note, here’s a little more about how the treatment works.
What is EmSculpt?
A non-invasive procedure, EmSculpt involves electromagnetic waves being applied to part of your body – such as the arms, stomach or bum – forcing your muscles to rapidly contract and helping to build them over time.
Usually carried out in 30 minute sessions, as its name suggests the idea is to achieve a more sculpted appearance of the target area.
According to the Este Medical Group’s website, it’s the equivalent of doing 20,000 sit-ups in a single session – which, unless you’re superhuman, is on the impossible side.
So, does it really work? OK!’s beauty director Lynne put the original EmSculpt machine to the test on her tummy at London’s Dr Rita Rakus clinic. (There’s also a new version just launched – the EmSculpt Neo, which we’ve been trialling at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic. Watch this space for our verdict on that…)
Does EmSculpt work? OK! tries it…
Lynne says: “The best way I can describe EmSculpt is ‘Slendertone on steroids’. The sensation started as a gentle tickly buzz quickly but very quickly became an eye-popping abdominal clench as my therapist cranked up the intensity.
The pulses didn’t hurt but they were so vigorous – and utterly involuntary – my mind instantly flashed to the birth scene in Alien. When the paddle wasn’t giving me otherworldly contractions, it was busily tapping and slapping my tummy to break down the fat. That may sound unpleasant but once I was used to the sensation it was weirdly invigorating.
I had four sessions over a month, and while I’m still waiting on the six pack, my tummy was definitely flatter and more toned afterwards.
I have no doubt EmSculpt really works but at around £750 per session, it’s a shocking amount of money to spend lying on your bum. You could spend the same amount on a personal trainer and transform your entire body, but of course that would mean putting in the effort yourself.
I’m definitely lazy enough for this treatment, I just wish I was rich enough for it too.”
