Have you been trying to tighten your abs or tone your body? If you have, you are not the only person in New York City that is fighting for the perfectly toned set of abs or butt with a nice lift. There are always options like dieting, exercise, and surgery available. However, Emulsculpt in New York City has become a very popular option to be deployed in tandem with traditional methods of staying in shape. Emsculpt is an FDA-approved non-invasive treatment that uses High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to produce muscle contractions throughout the body (typically focused on the abdominal and butt). This treatment helps to build muscle as well as tone the body. Studies have shown that Emsculpt treatments can increase your muscle mass by as much as 16 percent and decrease your waistline by as much as 19 percent.
Emsculpt in New York has been growing in popularity, and for good reason. It offers a pain-free and quick procedure that produces major results. An Emsculpt trained doctor attaches a pad to a targeted group of muscles (abs, thighs, or butt). Once attached, the pad sends electromagnetic pulses through your skin and to your muscles, which will cause them to contract involuntarily. When focused on your abdominal muscles, it is comparable to doing 20,000 situps in a span of 30 minutes. As your muscles contract, it results in them being strengthened while burning fat at the same time.
Emsculpt is not right for everyone. Ideally, it is best for those that are in relatively good shape and wish to add an extra touch of definition to their abdominal muscles and/or give their buttocks a lift. It is typically not an effective treatment for those with a lot of body fat as they will not see much of an improvement. It works best for people that have a few areas that they have found to be difficult to tone through their own dieting and exercise efforts. Both men and women in NY are good candidates for an Emsculpt treatment. If you have any metal in your body (pacemaker, medical devices, implant, etc.) or are pregnant, then it is recommended that you consult with your doctor before moving forward with treatment.
In N.Y.C., we rely on speed and efficiency. These are also two of the well-known benefits of Emsculpt. Recent studies have shown that it promotes 15 to 20 percent muscle growth as well as a reduction in fat in the targeted area(s). After two weeks of treatment, many patients report a visible six-pack and/or overall increased muscle tone and fat reduction in the treated areas. Results continue to improve during the two months following your treatment.
Maintaining your Emsculpt results will require you to work out the target muscle groups after the procedure. For instance, squats and core strengthening activities can help to maintain Emsculpt results well after the initial two weeks of treatment. However, if you do not plan on maintaining a stringent exercise and diet regime, you may need to schedule follow-up maintenance treatments.
Before you begin the Emsculpt procedure, you will have a consultation with a licensed and trained Emsculpt doctor to discuss your needs and what to expect. Typically, you will be required to have four to six sessions over a two-week time span.
You can expect each procedure with your doctor to last approximately 30 minutes. Since it is non-invasive, there is no “downtime” afterward. Once you leave your appointment, you can go back to working, hanging out with friends, or relaxing.
After each session, it will feel like you have just completed an intensive workout in the targeted muscle groups. This may cause soreness. If it is uncomfortable, it is recommended that you relax and allow yourself some time to recover.
These treatments share many similarities. However, what separates them is that CoolSculpting specifically targets and freezes fat. Emsculpt actually targets fat and builds muscle at the same time using electromagnetism. Furthermore, Coolsculpting can be used in more areas. Emsculpt is typically just used for specific areas like the buttocks and abdomen.
Experienced dermatologists throughout New York City recommend Emsculpt procedures be used to target the buttocks and abdominal muscles. In some cases, it may work well for the thighs as well. It is best to have a conversation with your doctor before beginning treatment just to be sure that it is right for you.
