The end of July is approaching and you've discovered that no matter how much you tried, you couldn't resist Taco Tuesdays and sleeping in when you should have been going to the gym. If you have been hiding your bikini body and loathe the idea of the gym, then not all hope is lost.
First of all, what is Emsculpt?
Getting rid of excess fat in time for bikini season has always been available thanks to CoolSculpting, but Emsculpt takes body contouring a step further. If you are looking for the option of toning your problem areas in addition to melting away some extra fat, Emsculpt is more suited for you. With 19% fat loss and 16% muscle gain, patients have been getting noticeable results within only one treatment, and significant results after four. And with such a quick response, there's plenty of time to enjoy the benefits of Emsculpt before your summer trip. Emsculpt is a fantastic method for getting rid of that last little bit of excess fat around your waistline and toning your butt in time to flaunt the perfect figure.
Emsculpt® is the first FDA-Approved treatment shown to actually build muscle and burn fat without you having to break a sweat. This groundbreaking treatment triggers muscle contractions, to build muscle, and burn fat without a patient having to exert themselves..
"Emsculpt is a one of a kind technology. Unlike other technologies, it addresses
both muscle and fat, making it unique in it's capabilities. All patients can benefit from
this treatment as it strengthens core. I have personally noticed a significant
improvement in my workout capabilities after having done this treatment myself."
-Dr. Supriya Tomar
If you’ve been struggling to see tone and definition from your workouts but are already in pretty good shape, this is the procedure for you. Another interesting property of this treatment is its ability to actually heal diastasis recti, without surgery. Emsculpt is completely non-invasive, meaning there’s no needles, no surgery, no numbing, and no downtime. This makes it the perfect treatment for busy moms who are suffering from abdominal muscle separation, as well as athletes who don’t want to take time off from training to have a procedure, or lose their core strength when out due to injury.
Emsculpt is presently FDA-approved for treating the stomach, the flanks or sides, and buttocks. EmSculpt has been proven to be most effective for these treatment areas currently; however, more treatment areas are being researched in order to offer a more complete body solution.
Tested in five unique abdominal clinical studies utilizing all four established methods of evaluation, including MRI, CT and Ultrasound, BTL Emsculpt delivered consistent results in muscle gain and fat loss:
- 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)
- 5 x increase in fat metabolism (apoptotic index increased from 19% to 92% after treatment)
- 80% patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks
- 96% patient satisfaction
Does Emsculpt hurt?
No. You will feel your muscles contracting, but you won’t be exerting effort. Most patients say this feels weird, but it’s not painful (you shouldn’t expect to feel a “zap” of the energy or anything like that). You should expect to feel sore after the treatment, just like you would after a good workout at the gym – this soreness usually appears 24-48 hours after the treatment, and is a good sign that muscle is being built.
How long will my results last?
Fat reduction results are permanent because the treatment targets and destroys those cells permanently. Muscle building results can be expected to last up to six months after a full course of treatments, however, as with any muscles you must get booster treatments or work to maintain your results.
Can many times can I do Emsculpt?
The minimum recommendation for optimal results will be four treatments within two weeks. There is no limit to how many times you can try it, and many patients book additional appointments to maintain their results.
In comparison to other treatments such as CoolSculpting, both methods are effective but different. Coolsculpting uses cryolyposis to reduce fat by freezing and eventually killing fat cells to be eventually flushed from the body naturally. As for Emsculpt, EmSculpt uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscle movement as well as burn fat. The main advantage Emsculpt has over CoolSculpting is the ability to tone muscle.
