Am I a Good Candidate for Emsculpt?

What is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is a noninvasive treatment that drives high-intensity electromagnetic energy through the skin to promote muscle growth and toning. Suitable for enhancing the abdominals, glutes, and thighs, Emsculpt can boost your muscle mass and reduce your waistline.

How Does Emsculpt Work?

Emsculpt uses noninvasive HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology to induce vigorous muscles contractions that aren’t possible with exercise alone. One HIFEM treatment is the equivalent to a person doing 20,000 sit-ups in half an hour. As the muscles of the abdomen, glutes, or thighs are exposed to HIFEM, the tissue must adapt to extreme conditioning, resulting in muscle growth and sculpting.

What is the Emsculpt Process?

During an Emsculpt procedure, a technician will place a rubber pad on the target area, which introduces the HIFEM treatment to the muscles. During treatment, not only does the body build muscle, but the involuntary muscle contractions release fatty acids, leading to fat loss. Emsculpt is not a fat loss treatment although some patients report losing fat.

To achieve the best results, candidates for Emsculpt undergo four 30-minute treatments. You’ll get two treatments a week for two weeks. The treatment is painless, but you’ll have sore muscles after just like you’d feel after a vigorous workout. Results are visible about two to four weeks after the final session and continue to improve after treatment. To maintain the best possible results, doctors advise follow-up treatments at six-month intervals.

There’s no downtime after an Emsculpt session nor is there any pre-treatment restrictions or requirements. After the procedure, you are free to go back to your daily routine.

Who is a Good Candidate for Emsculpt?

Anyone who wants sculpted abs, thighs, or glutes can benefit from Emsculpt. Patients should try to get near their target weight for best results. Emsculpt is perfect for patients who have stubborn pockets of fat that won’t budge despite proper diet and exercise. Visit your doctor to find out if you’d benefit from Emsculpt.
