Interested in combating certain pockets of stubborn body fat and tweaking your appearance? Body contouring with Emsculpt can give men and women a slimmer, more sculpted appearance along with fat-burning, muscle-building effects.
If you regularly exercise, like running, do crunches, use bands, practice TRX – and eat a healthy diet yet still have unwanted pockets of trouble areas, skin tightening might be an especially good choice for you. It’s an enhancement to, not a replacement for, a healthy lifestyle.
Emsculpt is a unique and an increasingly popular treatment for people who want to target stubborn areas of fat. Celebrity Kim Kardashian has used Emsculpt, even allowing cameras from her TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, to follow her into a session.
Some people consider skin tightening in preparation for a major-life event, such as a wedding, class reunion, or in celebration of a milestone birthday. Others just want a “summer beach body,” to feel a bit more confident internally about themselves, or to simply have their clothing fit a bit better.
If you have aging skin or persistent fat that’s resistant to diet or exercise, you can combat that fat and feel better about your body while you improve your core muscles. If you’re a regular gym goer in otherwise decent shape, except for a few target areas, skin tightening can help those specific areas.
Whatever your motivation, skin tightening might be suitable for you. Here are five reasons why.
1. It’s Non-Invasive
No needles, no scalpel, no stitches, no scarring – no way! Emsculpt gets results through a 100% non-invasive treatment process that’s really quite easy and uplifting, without ever having to “go under the knife.”
Using a rubber pad on the target muscle area, High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) waves create involuntary muscle contractions to lead to better definition and muscle tone. The revolutionary HIFEM energy engages muscle contractions to destroy fat cells in the targeted muscles as the muscles become more and more stimulated.
What’s your personal stubborn area? Treatment areas might include the major muscle groups of the abdomen, upper arms (biceps and triceps), buttocks, or legs. Whether you’re looking to tone and strengthen your upper arm muscles, tighten and lift your buttocks, better define your calves, or reduce abdominal girth, Emsculpt can help – without going to the gym.
Positive results can be seen right after the first treatment and continued improvement can be seen after follow-up sessions. Past patients describe Emsculpt as a “positive experience” and “a treatment that speaks for itself.”
2. There’s No Downtime
Time is a valuable resource, something you can never get back. Skin tightening with Emsculpt is achieved without surgery so there’s no lengthy recovery or “down” time following treatment. The procedure is very well tolerated by people and no medication is needed before or after.
In fact, many patients consider skin tightening a “lunchtime procedure” that’s easy to integrate into their regular, day-to-day activities. There’s no advance preparation needed and no after-visit requirements following treatment. And there is no scarring or need for bandages as there is with liposuction or similar surgical procedures, for instance.
A typical treatment plan for optimal results generally includes four sessions lasting 30 minutes each and spaced several days apart. This means a complete Emsculpt course of treatment can be finished in two weeks, taking significantly less time overall than other types of body sculpting that can require a minimum of a month between each cycle.
Patients are awake through every step of the process and can leave treatment and go swimming, bike riding, work out, or be active in the ways they prefer without limit or interruption.
3. There’s No Pain or Side Effects
From a patient perspective, skin tightening technology is painless and easy to tolerate – patients simply lay down and relax during the non-surgical treatment. Using a high-frequency electromagnetic field, Emsculpt sends pulses into the targeted muscle to cause contractions.
While there are no known side effects, you will definitely feel the results of what body tightening is doing. Many patients do report mildly sore muscles the next day and for up to 48 hours after treatment. The procedure feels equivalent to how muscles feel after intense gym workouts, so expect to experience a bit of soreness afterward.
Patients say they feel the most muscle soreness after the initial session and experience lessened soreness following subsequent sessions. Best of all, patients shed inches and combat stubborn body fat experiencing maximum patient comfort.
4. It’s Suitable for a Broad Range of People
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared Emsculpt body contouring technology as a safe, effective treatment to visibly reduce fat in the treated areas.
Whether you want to help define your abdominal wall, or lift your derriere, FDA-cleared skin tightening can have a dramatic impact on your shape to tighten the muscles of a range of healthy people in all age groups. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, non-surgical fat reduction is effective in diminishing stubborn areas of unwanted body fat.
Virtually anyone who needs a body positivity boost through lost inches or increased tone can benefit from the Emsculpt procedure – without spending hours in the gym or undergoing plastic surgery. Ideal candidates work out, have an active lifestyle, and eat healthy but can’t quite get rid of certain pockets of excess fat.
Each patient is unique so treatment plans are customized to the patient, how many muscle areas they want treated, and how many cycles they desire to achieve their target results.
5. Consultations are Complimentary
No-cost consultations help you further understand the treatment, what’s entailed, what results patients can typically expect, as well as the associated costs.
If you’re determined to be a proper candidate and decide you’re ready to get started, a customized treatment plan, tailored to your specific goals, will be created for you.
A Final Word
All human beings should have a positive body image – all that really matters is what you think about your physique. Emsculpt treatments can be uplifting to you and a great help in achieving your personal aesthetic goals.
The treatment can help you boost your confidence about your body and feel more comfortable in your own skin. The effects can last up to six months. Long-term results must be maintained through strength training and healthy living.
Of course, as with any type of procedure, exact results vary by individual and multiple sessions might be required to receive target results. Treatments are not guaranteed to provide permanent results in problematic areas. As with any medical procedure, be sure to ask your doctor whether medical aesthetic treatments are right for you.
