The gym will never become obsolete. When you want to run in place on a treadmill while watching television without sound, or listen to men making loud animal noises while they squat several hundred pounds, or wait your turn to use a machine that countless people have sweat on, there is simply no better place to go.

But maybe you don’t want to pick up something heavy, put it back down, and repeat the process thousands of times before you begin to notice even the slightest change in your body. Perhaps you would rather reap the same benefits of working out while you take a quick nap in Prior Lake. If that sounds nice, then you only have to book your first musculpting session with Uptown Medispa.

Musculpting is a revolutionary and nonsurgical body-contouring treatment that reduces fat while simultaneously increasing muscle in the abdomen, buttocks, arms and legs. Uptown Medispa’s musculpting machine emits radio waves which destroy fat cells by heating them. The imperceptible waves target superficial and visceral fat to reduce their volume by as much as 30%. As if fat reduction isn’t appealing enough, the same radio frequency also naturally improves skin elasticity by boosting collagen production!

Uptown Medispa’s state-of-the-art musculpting machine also emits high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) waves that stimulate surrounding muscles. HIFEM waves force muscles to contract as they normally would during physical exercise – they just do so far more quickly. A single 30-minute abdominal session is equivalent to completing 20,000 crunches. For context, the world record for most sit-ups in one hour is 2,507. That means you can complete 16 times as many crunches as an elite athlete in half as much time, with zero effort.

“Our musculpting machine isn’t like one of those electrical muscle stimulation devices you see advertised on dubious late-night infomercials,” said Michelle Hawkins, owner of Uptown Medispa. “Aside from feeling a little warmth, you won’t even know when it’s turned on. I haven’t had a client who’s stayed awake throughout an entire treatment so far. Our machine also breaks up lactic acid so you don’t feel sore afterward.

“I’ve personally experienced the benefits of musculpting. I used to suffer from stress incontinence thanks to the beautiful children I gave birth to. I quickly corrected the problem by musculpting my pelvic floor muscles – essentially completing tens of thousands of Kegel exercises without having to move. People who are experiencing incontinence due to old age can expect similar improvement.

“Before my husband started his first session, he had four visibly defined abdominal muscles. Now that he has completed his fifth treatment, he has six. I don’t mind telling you that neither of us are disappointed by those kinds of results!”

Musculpting at Uptown Medispa is easy. Michelle advises visiting twice per week for four weeks, and then twice every six months to maintain your results. But no matter your unique goals and physique, Uptown Medispa’s passionate and experienced aestheticians are always available to tailor the ideal musculpting treatment for you.
