Hey mama, how’s your core going?

If the last time you experienced a core was from an apple, then welcome to the club! Most mums lose their core during pregnancy, with their pelvic floor going south… along with everything else.

After having children, simple things you once took for granted become a little less fun. Jumping on trampolines — not so fun anymore (insert water emoji). Attempting sit- ups may make you look more like an upside down turtle than a human. Sneezing and coughing in public may require a fresh pair of undies, and racing to the toilet a million times a day… well, that’s just the norm now.

Thankfully, there are options to restore your core, and surgery doesn’t have to be top of the list.

Regenesis Aesthetic and Wellness offers core to floor therapy — the first non- invasive treatment to address the whole core, which can improve muscle strength, balance and reduce incontinence.

Located in Kent Town, the thoughtfully designed women’s wellness centre offers state-of-the-art treatments, making women feel their most confident. “We listen to your concerns, discuss goals and manage expectations, which enables our clinicians to tailor the various non-invasive treatments specifically to your requirements,” says Practice Manager Chamila Romanelli.

We took it upon ourselves to road-test a few of their world-class treatments…

She’s 50 and fabulous, but with four beautiful children, Kristy’s pelvic floor is not so crash-hot and it needs some serious TLC.

“Kristy road-tested the EMSELLA, which uses electromagnetic energy to contract your pelvic floor. One session induces thousands of contractions, which is extremely important in muscle re-education of incontinent patients,” says Cosmetic Surgeon/Director of Regenesis Cosmetic Surgery

Dr Robin Chok. EMSELLA’s 30-minute treatments are non-invasive, which means you can do your six sessions fully clothed. “Results are different for everyone and we recommend six sessions for best results. The muscles are still engaging for six weeks after your last treatment, so some women feel results after two sessions; others may take a couple of months to feel a difference.”

Feeling great at 40, I have two boys (aged ten and seven), and two C-section scars to prove it! I do Pilates to feel strong, but the word ‘plank’ still makes me shiver. I road- tested Regenesis’ brand-new EMSCULPT NEO — the first non-invasive body shaping procedure in Australia. “It involves four 30-minute sessions, with no pain and no down time,” Dr Chok says.

Mama to two daughters (and one of my favourite actresses), Drew Barrymore is now a spokesperson for EMSCULPT. Her abdominal muscles separated during both of her pregnancies, and her core was never the same. Realising that nobody ever tells you how to put your body back together after having babies, Drew became a big advocate for EMSCULPT.

So how does it work? “It combines two energies for simultaneous fat elimination and muscle building, using electromagnetic energy to make your muscles contract and radio frequency, which helps to break down fat. It’s equivalent to doing twenty-thousand crunches in thirty minutes. The best results can be seen three months after the last treatment,” says Dr Chok. Hallelujah to that!

It doesn’t matter what size you are, most women have cellulite! New mama bear Lauren road-tested the EMTONE, which aims to reduce cellulite and make your skin firmer. “Radio frequency generates heat, which allows the energy to penetrate deep into the cellulite, simultaneously delivering non-invasive thermal and mechanical energy to eliminate areas of cellulite and tighten loose skin,” Chamila says.

But what about the butt?

“EMSCULPT NEO is not just for the abdo, it can do wonders for the bum, too! Weight loss, pregnancies and the ageing process can all diminish the buttocks’ fullness, perkiness, and it can become flatter. This treatment aims to improve posture, balance and back pain by working on both the abdomen and pelvic floor muscles,” Dr Chok says.

Results may vary. Always speak to your medical professional to decide whether this service is right for you.
