The Emsculpt Treatment – One Step Closer to the Perfect Physique
When it comes to losing weight, it’s no secret that a healthy diet and exercise are key. However, many trying to lose weight focus on the diet more than the exercise. Weight loss, especially rapid weight loss, without sufficient exercise can lead to muscle loss which will result in a slower metabolism and a less-toned physique. While exercise is important throughout your weight loss journey, it can make the difference between just slimming down and having that well-toned physique you have been dreaming of. If you’re struggling as you near the end of your weight loss journey, the Emsculpt treatment could be the perfect solution.
Considering an Emsculpt Treatment…
…but wondering how it works? Emsculpt is a non-surgical treatment that can help both men and women build muscle and sculpt their bodies. Emsculpt was designed for those that have reached or are close to their weight loss goal but, even with diet and exercise, aren’t seeing the sculpted look they were hoping to achieve. It is not an effective treatment for those with a substantial amount of weight to lose.
Originally designed to tone the abdomen and buttocks by building muscle and burning fat, Emsculpt is also FDA approved to effectively treat the thighs, triceps, and upper arm area. This non-invasive treatment uses High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology (HIFEM®) to simulate muscle contractions more powerful than voluntary contractions. The treatment takes just thirty minutes and essentially provides you with a sweat-free workout equivalent to 20,000 squats or crunches.
How Does an Emsculpt Treatment Burn Fat?
After adolescence, the number of fat cells in our bodies typically remains the same. When we gain weight, our fat cells just get bigger, and when we lose weight they get smaller unless something happens to trigger the body to create more or metabolize some. The intense muscle stimulation created during an Emsculpt treatment accelerates the fat burning process and actually destroys some of those fat cells. The body then naturally eliminates the dead cells, creating a smoother, more toned appearance where a stubborn pocket of fat previously existed.
What to Expect During an Emsculpt Treatment
The treatment applicator is shaped like a paddle with a handle and it is strapped to the treatment area. Once the treatment begins, the applicator delivers pulses of electromagnetic energy to the treatment area which causes the muscles there to rapidly contract. Patients may experience some discomfort similar to what they would feel during a workout. The treatment begins with a lower setting and gradually increases based on the patient’s tolerance. Most patients are able to reach 100% intensity during their first treatment. There are also resting phases in between contractions that allow for lactic acid to be flushed out of the treatment area. This reduces post-treatment soreness. Some patients just relax during treatment while others read or catch up on emails with their phone or tablet.
Most patients receive four Emsculpt treatments over a two week period, giving the muscles a few days to rest in between. While some patients begin to see results after two weeks, most will not begin to see visible results until four to six weeks after receiving their last Emscuplt treatment. The fat cells that were destroyed are gone for good. By continuing to follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly, you will be able to maintain your new physique.
