Whether you’ve been working hard at losing weight or simply want a little more definition to your body, it’s normal to look for solutions. If you’re considering cosmetic treatments, however, it can feel overwhelming looking at your options. One leading treatment option is Emsculpt®, and it’s hard to deny that this is an extremely effective solution when it comes to sculpting your body in time for summer. The benefits of Emsculpt are many, so here’s what to know about it and how it can put the finishing touches on the new you.
HOW EMSCULPT WORKS
Emsculpt is a completely new treatment method that uses High-Intensity Focused ElectroMagnetic (HIFEM) technology. It works by stimulating involuntary muscle contractions in the treatment area, working your muscles beyond levels they can naturally achieve in the gym. This process causes metabolization of fat at the same time as promoting rapid muscle growth. The result is a doubly effective approach to toning and body contouring.
IS EMSCULPT RIGHT FOR ME?
Emsculpt is FDA-cleared for areas like the abdomen, butt, arms, and legs. This means it can visibly lift and tighten the butt and sculpt the abs for all-around improvement in your figure. Although Emsculpt can reduce stubborn fat and build muscle where you need it, it can’t address skin laxity, so you may need to explore other options if loose skin is a concern. Emsculpt works best for patients who already have a healthy lifestyle and are looking to tone and define certain areas. The best part is, Emsculpt comes with no downtime so you can return to your regular schedule right away.
WHAT IS EMSCULPT TREATMENT LIKE?
All you have to do during Emsculpt treatment is relax. At our Pewaukee office, our team will make sure you’re comfortable before applying specialized treatment pads to your treatment area. This administers the HIFEM energy to stimulate muscles while you enjoy your time with us. Most patients don’t experience pain during this process, although you may feel some soreness in the days afterward (similar to an intense workout). This means you can relax and catch up on your book or show in the meantime. Depending on your treatment plan, Emsculpt can take as little as 30 minutes.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
For best results, Emsculpt patients undergo a package of 4 treatments spaced a few days apart. However, you’ll see results within a few days of your first treatment session with increased definition and a visible loss of inches that will improve over time. You can opt for Emsculpt treatments as often as needed, and the best way to maintain your results is by living a healthy lifestyle with an optimized diet and regular exercise regimen.
