Technology has transformed the world of cosmetic surgery over the past decades. One of which is EmSculpt, an FDA-approved and impressive body contouring treatment that works without surgery or invasive procedures. In fact, EmSculpt stimulates muscle movement to build muscle and burn fat in stubborn areas such as the abs, thighs, calves, biceps, and triceps.
How Does EmSculpt Work?
The technology used by EmSculpt works by utilizing High Intensity, Focused Electromagnetic energy (HIFEM.) It uses an applicator that delivers electromagnetic energy to the targeted area during the treatment. And then, the energy deeply penetrates the muscle tissue, inducing supramaximal muscle contractions.
Moreover, these supramaximal contractions work the muscles at a level that cannot be achieved when done manually. One treatment offers an approximate equivalent of 20,000 squats or 20,000 crunches. EmSculpt has become an intense muscle workout to build muscle mass and increase strength, enhance definition, and improve tone.
Also, the HIFEM energy disrupts overlying adipocytes (fat cells) while stimulating muscle contractions, triggering their destruction and removal through the lymphatic system’s natural metabolic processes. This process is known as lipolysis (the destruction of fat cells) EmSculpt triggers the exact mechanisms that other non-invasive fat reduction treatments utilize to reduce unwanted bulges. EmSculpt provides the most comprehensive non-invasive body contouring method by increasing muscle mass while reducing fat.
What Are Benefits Of EmSculpt?
EmSculpt provides many reasons to be chosen as the best body contouring option, which include:
EmSculpt is non-invasive.
EmSculpt is nonsurgical, unlike other similar fat removal or reduction procedures. That said, the benefits of liposuction are being offered here but without surgery or anesthesia. Certainly, the EmSculpt device is reliable to do all the work to have a slim and trimmed midsection or a higher, firmer butt.
Similarly, this procedure is like having an intense workout session of squats or core work while a person is relaxing and receiving the treatment. It can help build muscle while burning fat and other body areas that may benefit from increased muscle tone and faster metabolism. The high-intensity magnetic energy of this innovative device creates powerful and intense muscle contractions.
In addition, different muscles in the predetermined target area are stimulated with the EmSculpt device during the session, and unwanted fat is burned away while building more muscle mass. When the new muscle is formed, fat cells are further diminished. Nonetheless, patients are left with a more lifted butt or a more defined abdominal area, which can show off relatively quickly.
2. It’s quick and effective.
A typical EmSculpt treatment session lasts about 30 minutes and involves minimal discomfort. In fact, patients receive anywhere from 4 – 8 treatments spaced 2 – 3 days apart in most cases. They can be expected in about 2 – 4 weeks about the results. However, regular maintenance treatments are recommended every 4 – 6 months to maintain the toned or lifted look that the initial treatments accomplish.
In addition, EmSculpt has been tested in five unique abdominal clinical studies, utilizing all four established evaluation methods, including MRI, CT, Ultrasound, and Histology. Emsculpt delivered consistent results in muscle gain and fat loss:
- 19% reduction in subcutaneous abdominal fat
- 16% increase in muscle mass
- Average waist reduction of 4.4cm
- 96% satisfaction with treatment results
3. Multiple areas are being targeted.
The feeling of frustration can be felt with those stubborn, unwanted fats. Almost everyone indeed has a particular area of their body that would love to slim down, and despite exercising and eating well, still, nothing happens. The beauty of EmSculpt is that it can target numerous regions.
For example, some men may want more sculpted arms or chiseled abs. On the other hand, women may wish their butt was more toned and in a higher position. Other body areas deemed well-suited for treatment include the abdomen and thighs.
This way, it can improve the body and the person’s self-confidence. This procedure only involves sitting back and relaxing while the EmSculpt device causes the muscles to contract 20,000 times. Fat is burned away while simultaneously building more muscle.
This newfound muscle mass lends itself to increased metabolism. The results are fast, visible, and can be a huge self-confidence booster for many patients. However, EmSculpt is not for everyone.
Who Are Good Candidates For EmSculpt?
EmSculpt is for people with fat in areas of the body that won’t go away despite doing endless sit-ups and squats. Also, this is for anyone who wants a firmer stomach and tighter buttocks. In addition, this treatment is best suited for individuals who routinely exercise, maintain a healthy diet, and are near their ideal body weight.
What Are The Side Effects of EmSculpt?
The EmSculpt treatment is touted for its high safety profile and is painless. The only sensation that can be felt is muscle contracting, which some patients describe as a weird sensation but not uncomfortable. By far, there are no known adverse side effects of this procedure.
However, most patients report temporary muscle soreness within 24 to 48 hours in the treatment area. This soreness is similar to the feeling after a hard workout and indicates that the treatment is working.
How Fast Will The Result Be?
One of the significant benefits of EmSculpt is how soon the results can be seen. After only four half-hour sessions, the effects of EmSculpt are already visible in as little as two weeks.
How Long Do Results Last?
Once the contours on the body are developed, the enhancements will last as long as the patient continues a healthy lifestyle with an active regime. Follow-up treatments are always welcomed as part of the maintenance. While EmSculpt stimulates muscles and produces impressive results, muscles become atrophy when not used, which means that Emsculpt results are not permanent if they are not maintained.
The Bottom Line
In the past decade, a more sculpted appearance is now possible with the help of technological advancements in the world of cosmetic surgery. Such is the case with the nonsurgical body contouring treatment called Emsculpt. CaTara Medical Spa offers EmSculpt, an impressive revolutionary treatment that effectively uses the HIFEM® (high intensity focused electromagnetic) technology to stimulate muscle contractions and reduce excess fat.
