Anything with the word “sculpt” sounds pretty promising, doesn’t it? Sign me up. As a mother and wife with a crazy schedule, I find it difficult to make time to exercise. The last thing I want to do at the end of each day is 50 sit ups, but like most women, I find myself constantly complaining about my mid-section and my core strength. In my perfect world, I want the results of working out without having to find the time to do it—and Emsculpt allows for that.
What is Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is our new FDA approved technology that uses electro-magnetic pulses to induce muscle contractions in the abdomen and buttocks. It is a non-invasive procedure that builds muscle, improves abdominal tone, increases core strength and firms the buttocks.
What is the difference in Emsculpt and a sit up?
Sit ups are a “Maximal” contraction where your body contracts and relaxes and contracts and relaxes. Emsculpt causes a “Super Maximal” contraction and allows your body to contract, contract, contract safely, doing 20,000 contractions in 30 minutes. This is something your body cannot achieve through normal voluntary muscle activity.
How does it work?
The device uses a surface magnetic paddle that is applied directly onto the abdomen and buttocks. There is no pain, no downtime and zero side effects. The procedure only takes 30 minutes, and with only 2 treatments for 2 weeks, you will get amazing results! You would have to go to the gym 5 days a week for 12-18 months to get the same results that Emsculpt gives you. After 4 treatments, studies show that muscle strength will increase by 16% and fat will decrease by 19%. Just like any of our other Body Sculpting devices, we recommend you maintain a healthy lifestyle post treatment and a few additional maintenance treatments will be suggested.
Does it hurt?
Not at all! Emsculpt causes a contraction which is a tightening of the muscle. For me, it was intense at times but very tolerable. Just like working out at the gym, if it is too comfortable no change is happening. If you are uncomfortable, change is happening! Your provider will be in the treatment room with you and will talk you through your sessions. There is no downtime after treatment. You may feel a bit sore, just as you would if you had done a core workout.
Am I a candidate?
Emsculpt is for anyone looking to build a stronger core, tone muscle and get a firmer booty. Emsculpt penetrates 2.75 inches into the muscle so we recommend being close to your ideal weight. We suggest booking a free consultation with one of our trained estheticians before your first treatment.
