Can I Get a Flatter Belly Without Crunches?

Can I Get a Flatter Belly Without Crunches?

There’s no doubt that having a flat, toned tummy is something most of us aspire to gain — but sadly, few of us ever attain. In most cases, that’s because achieving a flat belly isn’t easy, even for those who are already at or near their ideal weight.

Getting toned abs means lots of repetitive exercises, like crunches, planks, and leg raises, to strengthen and tighten our core muscles, and for most of us, the idea of spending hours at the gym day after day doesn’t exactly usher in feelings of joy and happiness.

Fortunately, other options can help you slim down a chubby tummy without excessive exercise — and without worrying about developing a painful hernia. At Starkey Medical Esthetics, Michele Meinhart, FNP, offers two options: SculpSure® and Evolve Tone®.

The science behind SculpSure and Evolve Tone

Both SculpSure and Evolve Tone can help slim down your belly area, but they do it in different ways, depending in part on the results you’re seeking.


SculpSure uses a technique called laser lipolysis, which literally means using lasers to break down fatty tissue. The SculpSure system uses a special device to administer “doses” of laser energy through your skin and directly to the fat deposits.

The energy delivered is fat-selective, which means it’s absorbed by the fatty tissue while leaving surrounding tissue unaffected. Once absorbed, the laser energy gently breaks down fat cell walls, essentially liquefying fat so that your body’s waste disposal system can carry it away.

Evolve Tone

Evolve Tone works differently to tighten and tone your belly. During treatment, the Evolve device uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate abdominal muscles, causing thousands of tiny muscle contractions. In fact, just one session is like doing hundreds of crunches in just a half hour. 


Evolve Tone helps flatten your belly by strengthening your core muscles, creating a natural “girdle,” so you look sleeker, slimmer, and more defined.

Benefits of noninvasive tummy tightening

Both SculpSure and Evolve Tone offer a wealth of benefits for anyone who wants to enjoy a flatter belly and slimmer waist. 

They’re quick

Both SculpSure and Evolve Tone treatment sessions take under an hour, which means they’re ideal even for busy people. Plus during your treatment, all you need to do is recline and relax while the device does all the work.

They’re convenient

On top of their quick treatment times, both Evolve Tone and SculpSure have no downtime, which means you can get back to your regular activities right away. 

They’re effective

SculpSure and Evolve Tone are precise, which means you can target specific areas. Both treatments can be good solutions for flabby areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise alone.

They’re customizable

Both SculpSure and Evolve Tone treatments are adjustable and customizable for one-of-a-kind outcomes based on every patient’s goals. They’re also repeatable to help you achieve the look you want.
