Who Is a Good Candidate for EMSCULPT?
You’re Not Far Over Your Goal Weight
This body contouring treatment is capable of reducing areas of unwanted fat by an average of 19 percent, and increasing muscle tone by an average of 16 percent. It’s a great solution for individuals who are already in pretty good shape with a body mass index of no more than 30, but who need a little help building extra muscle definition, tackling particularly stubborn areas of fat, and fine-tuning their figure.
You Want To Build Core Muscle Strength
Most non-invasive body contouring treatments focus on eliminating unwanted fat. EMSCULPT is the only one that also builds muscle tone, making it a popular choice among athletes, bodybuilders, and others looking to build extra strength. Whether you want to get more out of your weight-lifting sessions or want to strengthen your core to improve your golf game, this treatment can help.
This treatment can also help those who are coming back from an injury and looking to rehabilitate weakened muscles.
You’ve Developed Diastasis Recti
If you’re a woman who has had children and developed a medical condition known as Diastasis Recti, which is a separation in the abdominal muscle, this treatment can non-surgically close the gap.
You’re in Good Health
Patients who undergo this treatment should not be pregnant and should not have pacemakers, defibrillators, or metal implants in the part of the body being treated.
You Want a Non-Surgical Treatment
If you’re looking for help with body sculpting, but you want a non-surgical approach, this treatment system is for you. EMSCULPT is completely non-invasive, which means you won’t have to worry about anesthesia, scarring, or taking time off of work to recover. It’s a convenient, no-fuss way of getting your body in shape. It’s also a great option for patients who are not suitable candidates for surgery.
You Can Maintain Your Results
The fat that this treatment gets rid of will be gone permanently, but the new muscle definition EMSCULPT delivers will need to be maintained through regular workouts and a healthy lifestyle. Fortunately, the extra muscle tone patients develop with this treatment can raise their metabolism, making it easier for the body to burn calories and stay in shape.
You Want To Hone In on Problem Spots
When you’re dieting and working out, you don’t have a lot of control over where the weight is coming off and how your body is shaping up. But this treatment allows you to zero in on specific problem areas and tone them up. It’s a much more precise approach to body contouring and, most importantly, it delivers noticeable results.
You’re Ready To Feel Great About the Way You Look
If you’re like most of us, there are certain problem spots you’ve been struggling with for some time. Wouldn’t it feel great to get those problem spots under control and finally enjoy the slim, toned physique you’ve been working so hard for? This treatment can boost your self-confidence and help you feel great in your own skin again.
How Does EMSCULPT Work?
This treatment uses high-frequency electromagnetic energy to trigger super-maximal muscle contractions, which are the same type of contractions your muscles experience during exercise. A single 30-minute treatment produces 20,000 contractions, which is like performing 20,000 crunches or squats!
The electromagnetic energy is delivered through an external device that will rest against the part of your body you’re having treated. Although you’ll feel the muscle contractions taking place, you won’t feel any discomfort and you won’t break a sweat. The results you get will be much like you’d get if you were able to perform such a super-human workout.
Should I Do Anything Special To Prepare?
This treatment doesn’t require anything special in the way of preparation, but it’s a good idea to hydrate well during the two weeks leading up to your appointment. Some patients find that using a hydration app on their phone is the best way of keeping track of water consumption and ensuring that they are well hydrated.
How Will I Feel Afterwards?
During the hours after treatment, your muscles may feel sore and fatigued, just like they do after a tough workout. But you’ll be able to return immediately to your normal schedule and activities with no limitations.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
We recommend that most patients schedule four sessions over a two-week period. After the initial series, some patients opt to schedule annual maintenance treatments.
When Will I See Improvement?
Most patients notice improved muscle definition within the first two weeks after treatment. The slimming of unwanted fat will take place more gradually during the months after treatment.
What Parts of the Body Does This Work On?
This treatment is a great solution for the abdominal area, where it can sometimes help men achieve a six-pack. It can also be used to tone the buttocks, delivering results that are similar to a butt lift. The arms, thighs, calves, and pelvic muscles can also be treated.
Will This Help With Cellulite?
This treatment does not target cellulite, although its ability to reduce unwanted fat can improve the appearance of cellulite in some patients. If cellulite is your primary concern, we may recommend Velashape or Excilis Ultra, both of which are offered by our practice, to tighten up that dimpled skin.
Can This Treatment Be Combined With Other Services?
Yes. This treatment pairs nicely with many of the other services we offer. Some patients find that the muscle-toning benefit of EMSCULPT is a good way to follow a series of CoolSculpting treatments, which focus more on eliminating unwanted fat. Skin tightening treatments, botulinum toxin injections, and dermal fillers also make nice companion treatments.
Can Men Take Advantage of This Treatment System?
Yes. This is a safe and effective treatment for patients of both genders. Men frequently use this treatment to better define the abdominal muscles, while women more often use it to tone the buttocks and slim down the thighs, stomach, and hips.
Can I Have More Than One Part of the Body Addressed?
Yes. It is possible to have more than one area addressed. It’s not uncommon, for example, for a patient to seek treatment for both the abs and the glutes. Each part of the body being addressed needs to receive 30 minutes of treatment, so tackling more than one area may lengthen your treatment time.
Will This Help Me Lose Weight?
Once you’ve undergone this treatment, your body will appear slimmer, sleeker, and more muscular, but you won’t lose a lot of weight. This treatment contours your body and improves your silhouette by getting rid of small amounts of unwanted fat, but it is not a weight loss solution.
Am I Too Old for This Treatment?
There is no age limit for this treatment. Adults of any age can benefit from it. Patients most often seek this treatment out for its ability to improve the look of their body, but EMSCULPT also can strengthen the core, which makes it easier for older patients to stay active.
What Type of Fat Does This Tackle?
This treatment can reduce visceral fat, which is the hardened fat that forms around the internal organs. Visceral fat has been linked to medical conditions like Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain types of cancer.
Is This a Safe Treatment?
Yes. This is a safe and widely used treatment that has been approved by the FDA. It is the only FDA-approved energy device that has been found to both burn fat and build muscle definition.
