Hot topic: is this body-contouring technology worth the hype?
A new body shaping and muscle toning device has landed on the beauty market promising that one 30-minute treatment will tone and sculpt the body to the equivalent of the client doing 20,000 crunches or squats. But, does this machine live up to the hype?
3D Aesthetics 3D Powersculpt features seven different waveforms which allows operators to create a targeted approach to muscle toning and body shaping, while also being used as an accelerator to other body-contouring treatments. The brand says the device can burn fat, tone muscle, build muscle, shape, sculpt, and lift and tighten.
Areas that can be treated include the arms, upper abdomen, lower abdomen, non-invasive buttock lifting, legs and inner thigh shaping.
How does the device work to tone and contour muscles?
Using high intensity focused electro-magnetic technology to engage the muscle, the electromagnetic field polarises and depolarises, creating motor neurone pulses in 100% of the muscle fibre – significantly more than what would be possible in conventional exercise.
The technology continuously contracts the muscles throughout the treatment, forcing the muscle tissue to adapt, resulting in muscle building and fat burning. This is not to be confused with older technology like direct current muscle stimulation.
The 30-minute treatment is suitable for clients over the age of 18 who don’t have any of the brand’s listed medical contraindications. However, best results are seen on clients following a healthy lifestyle. Clients who are unable to exercise, providing the reason for inactivity isn’t a medical contraindication, may benefit from this muscle strengthening technology to help prevent muscle deterioration while inactive, says the brand.
Those clients who are regular gym goers may also benefit from this treatment, whether they are looking to treat tired muscles or target specific areas that they either don’t enjoy training, or are struggling to see results with.
The treatment is pain-free but can sometimes feel a little uncomfortable. During the treatment, clients will feel the muscles contracting and relaxing. The brand typically recommends eight sessions, two-to-three times per week.

Is there any downtime following treatment?
As this treatment is non-surgical, there is no downtime and clients can continue with their day-to-day activities. However, for clients that are regular gym goers, 3D Aesthetics recommends that they don’t train the treatment area for 48 hours post-treatment.
There is no aftercare formally required other than maintaining a healthy lifestyle for maximum results.
