Taking your physique to the next level can sometimes be an uphill battle—even with a consistent diet and exercise regimen, your body may have reached a plateau. In other cases, you may just be tired of spending so much time at the gym.
In any case, there is a non-invasive alternative to dedicating so much time to the gym: EMSCULPT®. If you are looking to take your fitness goals up a notch—and finally start seeing results—keep reading for more information on this fantastic non-invasive treatment.
What Is EMSCULPT®?
Even with diet and exercise, it can be hard to attain a streamlined, sculpted appearance. And while you may have heard of other non-invasive body contouring treatments, EMSCULPT® is different. Rather than just targeting fat disruption (eliminating fat pockets), EMSCULPT® has a dual function: fat disruption and muscle toning.
EMSCULPT® is a non-surgical, hands-free device that uses electromagnetic stimulation to build muscle and disrupt fat, working to tone, build, and contour while you relax.
How Does EMSCULPT® Work?
EMSCULPT® treatments use HIFEM® (high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology) to stimulate supra-maximal contractions, providing a more intense, more effective workout.
One 30-minute EMSCULPT® session targeting the abdominal muscles is the equivalent of performing 20,000 crunches–an unprecedented result that cannot be achieved through voluntary exercise alone.
By contracting the muscles at such a high intensity, EMSCULPT® induces muscle growth at a much higher rate than regular exercise. As the muscle tissue is broken down and repaired through these intense contractions, the muscle regrows stronger and more defined—much like the same process as when you do a normal workout.
In addition, as your muscles grow and become stronger, fat is naturally disrupted, while you can experience greater endurance, flexibility, and strength.
What Is an EMSCULPT® Session Like?
An EMSCULPT® treatment is like the most intense—yet easiest—workout of your life. Most sessions take about 30 minutes in total. Your technician will apply the EMSCULPT® device to the treatment area and customize the treatment based on your goals and specific target area. EMSCULPT® can be used to treat the following areas:
Once the device is applied to the treatment area, you can sit back, relax, and let the machine do its work. As the HIFEM® technology stimulates your muscles, you will begin to feel involuntary contractions. In this pain-free treatment, the contractions will be highly tolerable. Many patients claim it feels more like a vibrating sensation.
EMSCULPT® Recovery and Downtime
EMSCULPT® is completely non-invasive and non-surgical, so there is little to no downtime or recovery. After your treatment, you may feel slightly sore with some muscle fatigue, just like you would after an intense workout.
Many patients can schedule their appointments on their lunch breaks. You stay hydrated before and after treatment to avoid cramping.
Who Is a Candidate for EMSCULPT®?
Candidates for EMSCULPT® treatments should be in good health, are close to their ideal weight, and have reasonable expectations for results.
The best results are seen by patients who already have a standard exercise regimen and are simply looking for a treatment to give them that extra edge. EMSCULPT® is not intended as a weight loss treatment, as the device targets the underlying musculature, and excess fat may hide results.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect with EMSCULPT®?
Patients who undergo their full treatment plan of EMSCULPT® can expect more toned and sculpted muscles—many experience defined abs, stronger calves, and a more shapely backside.
In addition to the fantastic aesthetic benefits, EMSCULPT® does more than make you look good. Your muscles go through an intense workout, building mass and improving flexibility. You will feel better, too! Many athletes use electromagnetic stimulation to improve their endurance and strength.
After using EMSCULPT®, you will feel stronger, with more energy to take on even more intense voluntary workouts at the gym.
EMSCULPT® can give you the push you need to finally achieve your dream body—and keep it!
