What Is Emsculpt
Hollywood's Best Kept Secret To ABS
EMSCULPT is a revolutionary new body sculpting procedure that lifts and tones without the use of surgery. In fact, the process is completely non-invasive. By building muscle and reducing unwanted fat at the same time, patients who choose this treatment can enjoy a noticeably more defined abdomen.
How Does EMSCULPT work?
EMSCULPT is based on high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy. A single EMSCULPT session causes thousands of powerful muscle contractions which are extremely important in improving the tone and strength of your muscles.
These powerful induced muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions. The muscle tissue is forced to adapt to such extreme condition. It responds with a deep remodeling of its inner structure that results in muscle building and sculpting your body.
What is Emsculpt recovery like?
Emsculpt is non-invasive and requires no recovery time. Emsculpt is a great option for many patients because they don’t have to prep for treatment or follow any kind of post-care plan. Some patients experience mild soreness, but nothing as intense as what you would feel from a traditional workout.
Am I a Good Candidate for Emsculpt?
Anyone who wants to strengthen their abdominal, buttock or thigh muscles can benefit from the EMSCULPT procedure.
The best candidates, who are most likely to achieve visible, satisfying results, are of normal weight, exercise regularly, and eat a healthy diet.
EMSCULPT is not an appropriate choice during pregnancy.
It can, however, be a great way to tone the abs and reduce diastasis recti (lower abdominal muscle split) by 11% post pregnancy!
Patients with an implanted electronic device, such as a pacemaker, or an artificial joint in the treatment zone, or have an IUD are not candidates for EMSCULPT.
Are there any risks?
Emsculpt has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy through seven independent US-based clinical studies. In fact, on average, the following results were achieved in clinical studies on healthy patients:
• 19% reduction of fat
• 4 cm (~1.5 inches) loss in waistline circumference
• 16% increase in muscle mass
• 11% reduction in abdominal muscle separation (called diastasis recti)
• 5x increase in fat metabolism (apoptotic index increased from 19% to 92% after treatment)
• 80% patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks
• 96% patient satisfaction
There are a few contraindications that our team will go through with you during a consultation. The main risk is metal implants in body near the treatment site.
How is Emsculpt different from LaserLipo?
Results from these 2 treatments are pretty different, and hard to compare.
LaserLipo it used to target stubborn fat, where Emsculpt is used to build and tone muscle.
Clients looking for a more toned look (and who are already fairly lean) are great Emsculpt candidates.
If clients want to reduce “pinchable” rolls of fat then they will likely be a better candidate for LaserLipo.
Most clients fall somewhere in between these two extremes, and that’s where the consultation process helps to determine which treatment the better option.
Does Emsculpt hurt?
No! Emsculpt does not cause pain or discomfort. Patients usually say they feel a “pulling” sensation.
Our aestheticians have total control of the treatment intensity, so patients are always treated at a level that is comfortable to them.
What’s an Emsculpt treatment like?
At the first appointment, patients will have photos of the treatment area taken so that we are able to benchmark progress.
We have treatment rooms equipped with a TV and healthy snacks to make the experience more comfortable. The first step is securing the applicator to the treatment area, then the process begins!
Each treatment takes 30-60 minutes depending on the area.
When will I see results?
You will begin to feel results immediately after Emsculpt. These will be small changes, like posture improvements of decreased fatigue during exercise.
Most clients are noticing visible results around three months post-treatment, and maintain results with a maintenance plan. Clinical studies have shown that results can continue to improve for up to six months.
How long will Emsculpt results last?
If you work out once and never go back to the gym, those muscle atrophy, and the same is true for muscle mass gained by Emsculpt.
You can expect to keep your results for six months to a year, but it is recommended that you keep these results up with a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise.
We also offer special maintenance packages after you finish your package so you can come in to maintain results.
