To lose our unwanted fat and build muscle mass, we regularly hit the gym and do intense exercises. But even after controlling our diets and spending hours in the gym weekly, we sometimes cannot lose stubborn fat pockets in certain body parts. These fat deposits usually occur in the lower abdomen, upper arms, thighs, abdomen sides (love handles), etc. Cosmetic procedures such as Emsculpt burns fat and builds muscle, and can tone the body visibly.
The treatment can ensure a 16% increase in your muscle mass with a 19% fat reduction. This two-in-one body sculpting procedure is a non-surgical and non-invasive approach to fat reduction and body sculpting. When constant exercise and controlled diets fail to deliver desired results, Emsculpt can be your ultimate savior!
What is EmSculpt, and What Can You Expect From It?
Emsculpt is a technology that uses directly focused electromagnetic waves that stimulate muscle contraction at a rapid speed within the treatment area. This contraction of muscles breaks down the fat layers and promotes muscular mass. This FDA-approved fat reduction solution can treat body areas, including your buttocks, abdomen, arms, thighs, and calves. The fat metabolism and muscle-toning aspects of this treatment aid in losing unwanted fat and also building muscles. Emsculpt is the best alternative to surgical body sculpting approaches if losing fat and enhancing muscle mass are your goals.
How Does Emsculpt Work?
Emsculpt is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment for the reduction of unwanted fat. The technology is high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy. This technology uses electromagnetic waves that reach the skin muscles deeper and stimulate repetitive muscle contractions. Your belly, thighs, and buttocks are some of the areas where fat accumulation occurs easily but does not go away equally quickly. Sculpting the underlying muscles, this treatment can reduce fat effectively.
Equivalent to An Intense Workout
On average, Emsculpt gives around 20,000 muscle contractions in 30 minutes. This treatment sculpts your body better than intense workouts by strengthening the muscle fibers. Non-surgical and non-invasive treatments like Emsculpt are optimal for people who overall maintain a healthy body mass index but struggle with localized fat. This treatment is not a weight loss solution and thus is not for clinically obese people.
Our body requires time to process cellular debris of fat layers and show results. Thus, the complete procedure requires multiple sessions (typically 3 to 4). The results are variable and depend on every individual. However, results start kicking in after 4 weeks of undergoing this procedure. Consulting a credible esthetician can help you understand if you are an eligible candidate for this procedure and what results you can expect from it. Cutera Aesthetics offers a free consultation to its clients, allowing them to share their concerns with our experts before undergoing the treatment.
Will There Be Any Side Effects?
When you hear of building muscle mass, the first thing that may come to mind is muscle tenderness and soreness after intense workouts. But with Emsculpt, there is no discomfort after the treatment. You may feel the contractions during your treatments, but that just lets you know this procedure’s efficacy. Our body stores the cellular debris for some time, and you may feel a little sore. But in a few hours, this temporary soreness goes away!
Is the Treatment Painful or Uncomfortable?
With Emsculpt, fat reduction is easy, effective, and comfortable. During your treatment, you will feel multiple contractions in your muscles and also feel them relax from time to time to flush out the lactic acid buildup. This cycle of muscle contraction and relaxation continues for around 30 to 40 minutes, and after this, you are good to go. Some pros of Emsculpt body contouring are:
- No pre-treatment preparation needed
- Relax and enjoy a pain-free fat reduction
- No severe side effects
- Zero downtime
Does Emsculpt Provide Permanent Results?
Emsculpt targets fat cells and layers while building muscle mass. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they cannot grow back or even repair themselves. However, there is always some fat left in your body that can grow in size if you gain significant weight or live a poor routined life. Thus, maintaining a healthy diet with considerable physical activity is the secret to a toned and sculpted body for an extended duration.
Am I a Good Candidate for Emsculpt?
The optimal candidates for Emsculpt are those within a normal BMI. Too much fat can block the passage of electromagnetic waves and hinder their proficiency in destroying fat layers. Thus, this treatment is not optimal for overweight and obese people. Other than this, almost everyone is eligible to get this treatment. Women struggling with pregnancy aftermath and who want to tighten their skin are good candidates. Anyone who wants to look fit and is tired of seeing no visible results after constant exercise can rely on Emsculpt to get the body of their dreams.
