Everyone knows that the primary ways to lose fat and build muscle tone are a healthy diet and a regular exercise routine. But what if you don’t have the time to dedicate to these things in order to achieve the results you want? Luckily, there’s an easier way that doesn’t require strict dieting, non-stop exercise, or even a surgical procedure — EmSculpt.
EmSculpt: What Is It and How Does It Work?
EmSculpt is a completely non-invasive procedure designed to increase lean muscle mass and provide you with that toned look you’ve been wanting, particularly in the abdomen and buttock areas. Using an electromagnetic field, EmSculpt induces significant muscle contractions for muscle tone and fat reduction that are even stronger than those achieved during your typical workout.
EmSculpt is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is known to increase muscle mass in patients by around 16% and shrink the waistline by around 19%. This treatment is best for those that rank less than 25 on the BMI scale and are typically unable to receive other common fat reduction or general weight loss treatments.
What Does the EmSculpt Process Entail?
Receiving EmSculpt is painless and extremely quick when compared to other fat loss treatments. Your technician will place a rubber pad on the targeted muscle group (i.e., thighs, buttocks, or abs), which will then send strong electromagnetic waves into your muscles, causing involuntary supramaximal muscle contractions.
Though these contractions are more intense than what you can typically achieve during exercise, your muscle tissue will respond in a similar way as it would to an exercise routine. It will release free fatty acids to help break down the fat deposits in the targeted area, and the strength of your muscle tissue itself will be increased. Also, much like a workout, your muscle tissue will be naturally rebuilt and repaired in the hours after your treatment, resulting in firmer, stronger muscles (and a bit of soreness in the targeted area, as to be expected).
Every EmSculpt treatment requires four sessions at 30 minutes each to achieve ideal results. This is usually done with two treatments per week for two weeks, and with only 30 minutes needed per visit, you could easily get EmSculpt on your lunch break at work! Plus, because EmSculpt is not an invasive procedure, there is no post-treatment recovery period, and no preparation required.
Because EmSculpt essentially mimics the effects of intense exercise, the results are not permanent, especially if you don’t regularly exercise the muscles that you targeted in your treatments. However, most recipients of EmSculpt report immediate results and even see an improvement in the appearance of the targeted area over time, especially if they continue to exercise and eat right.
Incorporating a healthy diet and regular movement into your lifestyle are great ways to manage your weight. However, sometimes your aesthetic goals are slightly outside the level of effort that you’re able or willing to put in. In a situation like this, EmSculpt is the perfect solution.
