Do you follow a disciplined diet and fitness regimen, but worry you’ll never achieve a six-pack?
Have you tirelessly performed squat after squat, without seeing a noticeable improvement in the shape, firmness, or position of your buttocks? Are you bothered by flabby thighs that seem resistant to all your efforts at the gym?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, Emsculpt can offer an ideal way to tone muscles and eliminate unwanted fat.
Continue reading for everything you need to know about non-surgical Emsculpt, including how it works, who’s an ideal candidate, approved treatment areas, expected results, and associated cost.
What Is Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is an FDA-approved noninvasive body contouring treatment that simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle.
It has the distinction of being the first device to strengthen, tone, and firm muscles for a more chiseled and defined physique.
How Does Emsculpt Work?
During an Emsculpt treatment, a paddle-shaped applicator is attached to the designated treatment area. It then delivers high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy that engages muscles and stimulates a series of 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions.
These involuntary contractions are far more powerful than those produced by physical activity and force muscles to adapt to the extreme conditions. As a result, muscle fibers remodel and become thicker, stronger, and firmer.
At the same time, Emsculpt’s supramaximal contractions cause the release of free fatty acids and enhance fat metabolism. This yields noticeable slimming and fat loss in the targeted area.
What Areas Can Emsculpt Treat?
Emsculpt is currently cleared to reduce fat pockets and enhance muscle tone in the abdomen, buttocks, legs, and arms.
It also serves as the world’s first noninvasive butt lift and is an excellent alternative to a BBL for anyone who is not ready for surgery or doesn’t have enough transferable fat.
What’s more, Emsculpt has proven to be safe and effective for the treatment of diastasis recti (separated abdominal muscles). Until recently, diastasis recti could only be addressed with a surgical abdominoplasty.
Thanks to Emsculpt, patients can now repair lax muscles and tighten their midsection with a completely noninvasive, zero-downtime procedure.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Emsculpt?
If you are at or near your ideal shape, but have been unable to achieve desired muscle definition and tone, then you are likely an ideal candidate for Emsculpt.
The procedure is especially well-suited to women and men who lead a healthy lifestyle and want to take their bodies to the next level, without surgery, incisions, or a lengthy recovery.
Who Should Not Have Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is not recommended for individuals with a large amount of unwanted fat. It is also contraindicated in women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
What Does Emsculpt Feel Like? Is the Treatment Painful?
Most individuals find Emsculpt to be a quick, easy, and painless process.
At the beginning of the treatment, the involuntary muscle contractions can be surprising and feel similar to an intense workout.
However, within a few minutes, the body adjusts to the muscle stimulation, and patients can relax for the duration of the treatment.
How Long Is an Emsculpt Treatment?
Each Emsculpt session takes just 30 minutes and is performed in the comfort of our office by a highly skilled and experienced provider.
Within this short amount of time, Emsculpt produces 20,000 potent muscle contractions that are equivalent to 20,000 squats or crunches.
Best of all, patients are able to lay back while the device does all the work. That would never happen at the gym!
Does Emsculpt Require Any Downtime?
Following Emsculpt, patients are able to return to work and go about their day as they normally would. They can even exercise later that evening, without any disruption to their workout regimen.
The next day, it’s not uncommon to feel muscle soreness or tenderness – as if you recently completed a rigorous training session.
How Many Emsculpt Sessions Are Recommended?
In order to achieve optimal fat reduction and muscle toning, a series of 4 Emsculpt sessions, spaced two-to-three days apart, is recommended.
Patients may elect to undergo maintenance sessions, as needed, to preserve muscle definition and sculpting.
Is Emsculpt Safe? What Are the Possible Side Effects?
Emsculpt underwent seven U.S.-based, independent clinical trials to prove its safety and efficacy and gain FDA-approval.
Patients can rest assured that it poses minimal risk and has no known side effects – other than mild and temporary muscle soreness.
What Kind of Results Can Patients Expect with Emsculpt?
According to seven clinical trials, with over 200 patients, a series of four Emsculpt treatments can produce noticeable muscle toning and fat loss. More specifically, study results showed:
- An average 16% increase in muscle mass
- An average 19% fat reduction
- An average 11% improvement in diastasis recti
- A 96% patient satisfaction score
How Soon Can You See Fat Reduction and Muscle Strengthening?
Many women and men say that they feel stronger and see enhanced muscle definition after their first Emsculpt treatment.
However, it usually takes two-to-four weeks after the last session to note visible firming, toning, and slimming effects.
Results will continue to improve over the next two-to-three months, and some patients experience gains for up to six months.
Final results reveal a leaner, firmer, and more chiseled physique, with added strength and stability.
How Much Does Emsculpt Cost?
Emsculpt cost can vary from patient to patient depending on individual goals, treatment size, and treatment location.
That being said, an in-person consultation is the best way to get an accurate price estimate for your Emsculpt procedure.
