We all want to look and feel our best. But let’s face facts here– it’s not as simple as getting on the treadmill and running a few miles. The ability to shape your body how you want it depends on a wide variety of factors, and one of the most important ones is our genetic makeup. Yes, it is important to follow a healthy diet and get regular exercise, but at the end of the day we cannot change genes! Fortunately, there’s a non-invasive solution that will help tone and sculpt your body to help you finally get the body you’ve always dreamed of.
That solution is Emsculpt.
Though it is a relatively new treatment, Emsculpt is actually the only non-invasive treatment of its kind that is FDA-Cleared to help sculpt and tone the body. In most cases, significant results are first noticed within just weeks of treatment. Stubborn, hard-to-lose fat is reduced, and many people who undergo this treatment also experience additional muscle gain!
So is Emsculpt the right option for you? Here’s what you need to know:
How Emsculpt Works
You can lay down and relax as Emsculpt does all the work! This treatment uses a proprietary technology called “High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic energy” or HIFEM energy. In a nutshell, what this technology does is use this energy to induce supramaximal muscle contractions. Because these kinds of muscle contractions are not typically achievable through regular, voluntary means (as in, with regular exercise) they involve a lot more spasms and burn far more fat that regular muscle movements. At the end of the treatment, many people feel like they just had a major workout session.
According to data collected by the Emsculpt manufacturer (BTL Industries), most people see an average of 16 percent increase in muscle mass. Average overall satisfaction rates were also reported at 96 percent!
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Emsculpt?
The truth is that just about anyone can benefit from Emsculpt treatment, though individual results will vary depending on the person’s fat and muscle levels.
For those who want to achieve a truly sculpted, muscular look with minimal visible body fat, there should be no more than an inch of pinch-able body fat on the targeted area. That said, just about anyone who chooses Emsculpt can still see significant toning and sculpting that can result in an overall slimmer and more fit appearance.
What Areas of the Body Does Emsculpt Work On?
Emsculpt technology can be used to target a variety of areas. The most commonly-targeted areas include the stomach and abs, upper arms, and legs, though it is used for general overall body sculpting as well. It is also worth noting that Emsculpt is the first non-invasive procedure that can be used to tone and firm the buttocks.
How Many Emsculpt Treatment Sessions are Required?
The exact number of treatment sessions that will be required to see significant results will depend on the specific candidate. Because both personal goals and amounts of body fat vary, the number of treatment sessions will be tailored to suit the individual person.
That said, it is recommended that candidates go for a minimum of four 30-minute treatment sessions in order to see any results. These sessions should be scheduled two to three days apart from each other, and many people report experiencing results right after treatment. More significant results are usually seen with two to four weeks of the last treatment session. Follow-up sessions may be scheduled later on depending on the person’s personal needs and goals.
Is there Any Recovery Time With Emsculpt?
We’ll just jump right into answering this one– There’s no recovery time!
See, no anesthesia is necessary, and the person undergoing Emsculpt is wide awake throughout the treatment. It’s easily one of the most effortless cosmetic treatments available today, although many would argue the fact that it has the effects of a really intense workout qualify it as going beyond just “cosmetic”.
Though it is possible that some soreness may occur due to this “workout”, there is no recovery time involved, and nothing that will prevent the person from resuming normal everyday activities immediately afterward. Better yet, because treatment sessions are only 30 minutes long, many people are able to conveniently schedule their Emsculpt treatments on lunch breaks or whenever it works best for them.
