If you’re looking to tone your physique and build your muscles, Emsculpt might be for you! We’ve rounded up answers to common questions about Emsculpt to help you make an informed choice about whether Emsculpt is the right solution for you:
What is Emsculpt?
You may have heard of body contouring or Emsculpt, but what exactly is it? Emsculpt is a revolutionary, groundbreaking body contouring technology that utilizes electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) to induce involuntary supramaximal muscle contractions, lifting and toning your treatment area without the use of surgery.
This treatment goes beyond what our muscles can voluntarily do — just one thirty minute Emsculpt treatment is the equivalent of doing 20,000 crunches! While most body contouring treatments work to target fat, Emsculpt works uniquely to target both unwanted fat and build muscle at the same time.
How does Emsculpt work?
Emsculpt works by utilizing HIFEM, a High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic contraction placed directly on your target area. Target areas can include abdomen, arms, thighs, and legs. The machine is placed on your target area in 30 minute increments and set at a specific frequency to target unwanted fat while simultaneously building muscle. On average, a series of Emsculpt treatments generate between 16% growth in muscle mass and 19% reduction of fat.
Who is a good candidate for Emsculpt treatment?
Emsculpt is ideal for patients with lower body fat who lead a healthy, active lifestyle but are struggling to gain muscle tone in certain areas. By amping up muscle gain and fat reduction in stubborn areas such as the abdomen, Emsculpt can produce muscle definition that patients have trouble achieving on their own.
How long does Emsculpt last?
You can expect your Emsculpt results to last around six months, but placing an emphasis on a healthy diet and exercise can help extend your results. Patients often use Emsculpt treatments to kickstart healthier habits — getting a boost from Emsculpt to start off can encourage you to keep up the results through lifestyle changes! Some patients prefer to use periodic Emsculpt treatment as maintenance for their new physique. Talk to Dr. Matt Dunham about the best options for you!
How many treatments of Emsculpt do you need?
Typically, you can expect four 30 minute Emsculpt treatments in your target area over the course of about two weeks. Treatments will be spaced several days apart. If you are targeting multiple areas of your body through Emsculpt, each area will need thirty minutes per treatment session.
How long does it take to see results from Emsculpt?
You may start to see improvements during the course of treatment, but Emsculpt results become most notable 2-4 weeks after treatments are completed. Due to Emsculpt helping build muscle, you may also start to notice yourself feeling stronger during exercise (particularly during strength training activities).
How will I feel after an Emsculpt treatment?
Emsculpt has no downtime! Your muscles may be sore (just as they would be after a strenuous workout), but you’ll be able to carry on with your normal routine after treatment.
