So, how can Emsculpt help build ab muscles?

Keep reading for everything you need to know about getting buff with Emsculpt.

What Is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is an FDA-approved body contouring treatment that simultaneously builds muscle and burns fat in targeted areas like the abdomen and buttocks.

It works especially well for women and men that have been unable to get a firmer and more toned physique through diet and exercise alone.

How Can Emsculpt Help Build Ab Muscles?

Each Emsculpt session takes just 30 minutes and involves the application of a rubber pad to the treatment area. Using electromagnetic waves, the device stimulates a series of forced muscle contractions that are beyond the capacity of even the most strenuous workout.

This intense activity causes fat to break down and muscles to undergo dramatic remodeling to become stronger and firmer.

In fact, Emsculpt can produce an average 16 percent increase in muscle mass and 19 percent decrease in subcutaneous fat.

Is It Safe?

While the first question that many patients ask is, “Can Emsculpt help build abs?” they also want to make sure that the procedure is safe.

Emsculpt has undergone rigorous testing in order to gain FDA-approval, and its safety and efficacy have been thoroughly examined in seven independent, US-based clinical studies, with over 200 patients.

This testing hasn’t shown any safety issues or negative side effects. What’s more, the procedure is extremely well-tolerated by most patients, who may experience some muscle soreness the following day.

Within How Many Treatments Can Emsculpt Help Build Ab Muscles?

For optimal muscle strengthening, toning, and firming, a series of four Emsculpt sessions, spaced two-to-three days apart is recommended.

Results can be noted within two-to-four weeks after the last session, and treatment benefits peak at three months. However, Emsculpt can continue to build ab muscles for up to six months.
