The basics of Emsculpt
Emsculpt is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that triggers supramaximal contractions through delivering high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy waves deep into muscle fibers.
Emsculpt can be used for both men and women and has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. It is used to tone, strengthen, and firm abdominal muscles and the buttocks.
How Emsculpt works
Emsculpt targets muscle fat loss by causing about 20,000 muscle contractions in 30 minutes. These contractions cause fat cells to break down in the targeted muscle area, releasing their contents as fatty acids. The increased fatty acids cause malfunctioning of the fat cells and die. The body metabolizes the fat cells before excreting as waste. During the intense process, the muscles adapt to extreme conditioning and therefore go through cellular changes causing them to strengthen and thicken.
The areas that can be treated with Emsculpt
Emsculpt is a non-invasive treatment procedure and is therefore safe to be performed on most areas of the body. The procedure is used at Elysium SurgiSpa to:
- Tone and strengthen abs
- Tone, lift, and round the buttocks by building the gluteal muscles
- Sculpt the abdomen, arms, and thighs
The procedure has no pain and downtime. It delivers results without you having to go through strenuous dieting and exercise.
What to expect during Emsculpt treatment
During your first appointment at Elysium SurgiSpa, Dr. Mick will discuss what you ought to expect during the Emsculpt treatment procedure. He will then perform a physical examination to understand the current state of your body. Depending on your desired goal, he will develop a personalized treatment plan for you. Most Emsculpt therapy plans consist of about four 30-minute sessions. The sessions are usually about two to three days apart.
During the treatment, you will feel mild Taser-like sensations and tightening of the muscles. As the intensity of the device increases, you will feel sharper tingles and extreme gripping. You will be able to see the muscles as they rise from your abdomen.
You should feel no discomfort after the procedure. Results can be felt immediately after the first session, although dramatic results are usually observed after two-four weeks.
Safety precautions when using Emsculpt
No serious side effects have been recorded from the use of Emsculpt. However, the procedure should not be performed on pregnant women or those with metals or electronic devices in your body as the procedure could either heat up the muscles or short-circuit the electronics. It is recommended that you keep your phone or electronic devices at a safe distance.
