Everything You Need to Know About Emsculpt

It seems as though every year there are a slew of new products and treatment that hit the scene and promise to deliver on results. From new surgeries to brand new devices, they all seem to be the same. Some actually deliver on their promises of getting rid of stubborn fat, while others are a complete fail.

Figuring out which one of these new treatments and procedures are good for you can become another hassle. What should you actually use to get rid of the unwanted fat you have?

How about Emsculpt?

It is an impressive treatment that not only burns fat, but also tones muscle as well. The procedure is completely non-invasive and there is zero downtime as well.

How Does Emsculpt Work?

Emsculpt is unlike any other treatment on the market. It not only burns unwanted fat, but it also builds muscle as well. Emsculpt uses electromagnetic energy that focuses on the targeted area, most notably the abdomen. From there, the muscles contract at a rapid rate.

These muscle contractions cannot be duplicated through exercise no matter how hard you try. The contractions can reach up to 20,000 in just 30 minutes. What then begins to happen is that the fat starts to dissolve and the muscles begin to reconstruct themselves.

That fat does not comeback as the new muscle that has replaced it has now formed. Not only does Emsculpt build muscle, but it also tones it as well. Just imagine going to the gym and getting the most intense workout humanly possible and seeing instant results.

That is essentially what Emsculpt is doing.

Underneath fat lies muscle and that is what Emsculpt targets. Peeling away at that fat and getting to the muscle that resides underneath.

How Is Emsculpt Different Than Other Fat Removal Procedures?

The differences between Emsculpt and any other treatment is essentially night and day. Sure, there are other devices that will help you shed that unwanted fat. There are also devices that can help you build muscle as well, but you won’t find any treatment out there that simultaneously helps you develop both at the exact same time.

It’s not just the abdomen that gets a good workout, but it is also the buttocks as well. It is rounded and lifted at the same time. Essentially you are getting two procedures done at the same exact time.

Who Is a Good Candidate for the Procedure?

Emsculpt can work for almost anyone. It is also suitable for both genders as well. Women who have just given birth and are looking to regain their old body are perfect candidates for this device. The process of getting back to your original figure can be a challenge but with Emsculpt it can be a seamless transition to getting that body back.

For those of you that have tried constantly going to the gym but have seen less than stellar results would enjoy giving Emsculpt a try. The results seen during this treatment can surpass even the most rigorous gym goers. Although this treatment works for just about anyone there are a few individuals that should stay away from this treatment.

Patients with metal implants anywhere in the body such as pacemakers would not be suitable for Emsculpt. Also women that are pregnant should not consider Emsculpt as well.

How Long Does Emsculpt Take?

Typically each session will last roughly 30 minutes. To receive the full benefits of Emsculpt you can expect to take four sessions over a two week period.

Usually the treatments will be spread out between a period of just a few days.

What Results Will People See After Emsculpt?

The results you can expect to see is a much flatter stomach and a noticeably more firm midsection as well. Remember, Emsculpt doesn’t simply focus on getting rid of your unwanted fat and flattening your midsection but it also builds muscle. That means that you can expect to see a big difference in your buttocks also as it will become more rounded, lifted and fuller.

You must complete the full two weeks of treatment in order to fully get the results you want. It will look as though you were going to the gym non stop instead of simply getting treatment. You won’t have to wait long to see results either. After just one treatment you will notice a difference.

Two-to-four weeks is when you will see the biggest results. Several weeks after the treatment you will continue to see improvement in your physique.

How Long Do the Results Last? Do Patients Return for More Treatments?

How long the results of this treatment last is entirely up to the patient. Not everyone is the same. For some patients they might be motivated by the results and might decide to live a more active lifestyle including going to the gym more frequently and eating better.

If you do decide to turn into a consistent gym goer then the results can last a long time and in some cases it could last permanently.

With other patients however instead of maintaining the treatment by going to the gym and eating better they simply come back for maintenance sessions. Essentially, it means that you would come back for a treatment to keep your slim figure. Maintenance treatments can vary from once a month to once a year. It really all depends on the results you wish to keep.

What Are the Potential Side Effects of Emsculpt?

The side effects of Emsculpt are generally soreness and a bit of fatigue. Although you might be laying down casually while Emsculpt does all of the work it truly is as though you are having a workout. Typically after a good workout at the gym one can feel sore or just plain tired from all of the strenuous activities they were just doing. Emsculpt is almost no different.

The contractions that take place during treatment is produced at a much higher level than when you are working out at the gym. The soreness however isn’t something that the body cannot handle. Usually, patients get past the soreness in a short amount of time. Other than a bit of fatigue as well, patients won’t have to worry about other potential side effects from using Emsculpt.
